Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival (Sept. 15 - 25th)
Yesterday the 10th annual Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival kicked off. This year's festival pays tribute to the music and culture of New Orleans. The 10-day event culminates a week from this Saturday (Sept 25) with a free outdoor festival on three stages that stretches over six blocks in my neighborhood, The South End. Last year's event drew over 80,000, so put the date in your calendar and if you're a jazz enthusiast check out their website for events this weekend.
Red Bull Art in Motion (Saturday 4:30 - 9:00pm)
Hard to describe and fascinating to watch. Check out this free event coming to Boston Saturday afternoon down at Government Center. Looks very cool and is certain to draw a lively crowd.
