If you like music on the Fourth of July, the Whiteface Region is a good place to be.
After BBQing with the family, head to Whiteface Mountain for some live tunes with YnotBlue. The Adirondack three-piece band plays, as they state on their Facebook page, rock and blues meets funk and psychedelic folk. The band released its first album, “End of Industry,” in September 2013.
After that show, head on in to Mirror Lake to watch the “Set the Night to Music” Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. This longstanding Adirondack tradition features fireworks choreographed to music.
The Rock the Face concert series at Whiteface’s Cloudspin Lounge includes some other great bands this summer, too. Shows run 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturdays throughout the summer. Here’s the rest of the lineup:
July 11 - Fade to Blues, a local blues group
July 18 - Yo Lostdog, a local group that plays rock with a fun twist
July 25 - Larry Stone and the Stoneground Express, a local group that plays a mix of country blues, blues and American roots
Aug. 1 - Legends, a local classic rock band
Aug. 8 - The Royal Noise, a Philadelphia-based funk/jazz group with local roots
Aug. 15 - Subumbrella, a local group that plays indie rock, dance rock and rock rock.
