Here are five things to do in Swampscott this weekend.
Cheer: plays its home opener against Winthrop Saturday at noon at Blocksidge Field on Humphrey Street.
Listen: Here's a list of performances on Saturday in Salem:
O’Neill’s has Irish music from 6-9PM tonight and every Saturday.
Seaport Café has Jazzport with Maureen Benson. Cool jazz vibe here and I think a pleasant night to sit on their patio. Check out their new menu too.
Rockafellas has DIEzAL. That’s the way it’s spelled on rocks website so I’m continuing it here.
Gulu Gulu has Brad Byrd. Show starts at 8.
The Lobster Shanty has Ronnie and Company of JT and the Hounds fame. Stop on by for a listen.
Reunion rock the waterfront down at Vic’s Boathouse.
In a Pigs Eye are featuring Jahn I Roots.
Howling Wolf has Noe Socha Trio. I have seen and heard Noe and he’s not to be missed. A native of Italy, he is just amazing on guitar.
Soul Rebel Project rock the waterfront down at The Black Lobster. Get out and enjoy the nice weather while you can. Makes for nice memories during those January blizzards. Showtime at 8PM.
