It’s the last week of August, which feels like end of summer (though it doesn’t officially end until Sep 22), which can feel like a bummer. But it doesn’t need to be! There’s a full week and long weekend of shows to see, with Spoon live at Malkin Bowl being one of them! Don’t miss these massive indie stars as they’ve lit up the charts with their newest album.

Plus, check out incredible shows like local highlights Alexandria Maillot and Tavis E Triance, and the energy of folk punkers AJJ, visiting from Arizona! And to close all this fun out with a bang, indie darling sisters Haim are playing holiday Monday!
