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 music continues

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:
