knuckleheads saturday open jam

Saturday afternoon found us at Knuckleheads Saloon for the Saturday Afternoon Open Jam. It is the best place to go for live music on a Saturday afternoon, and catch some of the best up-and-coming musicians in Kansas City, along with those already making their name. A boarding house built in 1887, Knuckleheads sits tucked under the Chestnut Street Bridge, right next to the railroad tracks.  Trains are always going by, but you never really seem to notice.  They seem to fit right in with the rhythm of things, as this venue regularly hosts some of the best and biggest acts in rhythm & blues, folk, zydeco, honky tonk, the list goes on. view more photos from this event

DEMF is held at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit, an open-air venue with grassy areas for lounging, a fountain, and beautiful view of the Canadian skyline, and a technology area showcasing
