Where to See Live Music This Weekend
We're so excited to see live music events scheduled in 417-land that we rounded up 11 performances taking place this weekend.

One of my favorite summertime activities is lazily enjoying a drink on a local patio while feeling personally serenaded by some of southwest Missouri's best local musicians, something that the pandemic very much interrupted this year. Luckily, we've seen an uptick in live performances recently, as some local businesses have been able to set up stage options that keep both performers and patrons safe.
If you're ready to fill the live music void you've been experiencing this season, then this is the weekend for you! We've rounded up 11 events featuring local artists that we've very much missed hearing in person. Be sure to follow all guidelines outlined by the establishment you're visiting so that they may continue to schedule similar events in the future. Happy listening!
