Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Thursday, June 25.
1) Ronstadt Generations at the Hershey Farmer’s Market (Hershey)
The Hershey Farmer’s Market free concert series continues tonight 6-8 p.m. This time around, the Mexican and Southwestern-flavored folksy band Ronstadt Generations is bringing their unique, bluesy folk to the market stage. This sextet brings the musical knowledge of a whopping five generations and two distinct groups to their tunes. Three members are from the Ronstadt family – yes, those Ronstadts: Michael J., brother of Linda Ronstadt, and his sons, Michael G. and Petie. Three – Alex Flores, Sam Eagan, and Aaron Emery – form Los Tusconenses, which joined the Ronstadt Generations in 2012. Check out these folks’ simmeringly angry, dead-on rendition of 16 Tons:
2) Frankie Vado at Tellus360 (Lancaster)
Not quite in the mood for al fresco bluesy folk? Head on over to Tellus, grab a drink or three, and check out Frankie Vado at 9 p.m. tonight. This no-cover event is a chance to check out Vado, an actor and rapper from Philly whose clever wordplay and quick tongue are featured on his new album “Yesterday’s Reject.”
3) Banana Max Eastern Boulevard Grand Opening (York)
Just want to dance and drink this Thirsty Thursday? No fear! Banana Max York is opening up at 5 p.m. tonight 2650 East Bouleavard, behind Fat Daddy’s. Miller Lite pitchers are 99 cents from 8-10 p.m., they’re running $3 bombs from 10p.m.-12 a.m. At this location, mixed drink pitchers will always be $5, but if it’s been a rough week, you can just pretend it’s a limited time special.
Want more? You don’t have to wait ’til 3 p.m. to check out FLY’s live music, bar entertainment and performing arts calendars.
