One Longfellow Square welcomes Crystal Bowersox tonight

I know it’s incredibly early to already be counting down the days until the freakin’ weekend, but we are one day closer to Friday! This fact makes me incredibly happy, and what makes me even happier is the amount of cool things to take in this Tuesday. Get ready to throw on your Party Pants and shake things into action this evening at such shows as Blue Prairie at Andy’s Old Port Pub, Ronda Dale & Ron Babson at Lenny’s at Hawkes Plaza, Travis James Humphrey at Gritty’s, and more.
