The days are getting longer and many of us are ready to get out of the house and hear some live music. You don’t have to go far because Millcreek has plenty of options.

Liquid Joe’s (1249 E. 3300 South) has live music throughout the month including a fun ’80’s dance party with the sounds from Retro Riot or if you prefer to rock in español with a danceable beat like Latin ska then the band out of Denver, Roka Hueka, will be live Friday, June 21.

The end of the month Liquid Joe’s has Tijuana No! a band from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. This band was influenced by The Clash, Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols and Black Flag. They are considered a punk, rock and ska band and will definitely get you up and moving.

Of course, if you want to be the talent, well, there is always open mic night at Boomerang’s Down Under Bar in Millcreek (1306 Woodland Ave.). Locals have a chance to showcase their talents every Tuesday. Poets, comedians, music lovers and performers have the opportunity to become stars in our community just bring your friends for a standing ovation.

Boomerang’s also has live acoustic music on Wednesdays beginning June 5 and alternating every other Wednesday with an acoustic concert from Dave & Leslie.

“Every weekend night we have artists performing. On Fridays and Saturdays from 5-7 p.m. there is country rock or a bluegrass band. Late on weekends, we turn the whole bar into a dance floor and we have a DJ do a stage production or rap show,” said Trent, a bartender at Boomerang’s.

Cruzrs Saloon in Millcreek (3939 S. Highland Drive) has just been remodeled and Jacob, the bartender said, “Every Saturday we have live music. We also have open mic and jam sessions on every other Tuesday. These are typically bluegrass.” λ
