 SATURDAY, JUNE 15 

The 3rd annual Juneteenth Celebration at The Levitt is Sat, Jun 15, at Levitt Pavilion Arlington (100 W Abram St, 817-543-4308), hosted by MC Howard the Second and Winfred Dalcaour. The gate opens at 4pm, and music starts at 5pm with opening act Dallas-based neo-soul/jazz-funk band Celestial Clockwork. Activities, food trucks, and vendors will also be around the lawn.

Self-described as “just a bunch of chaotic nerds sharing their love of video games and nerd culture through the power of music,” Reggie T. & The Boneheads brings their brand of hip-hop, funk, jazz, R&B, and rock fusion, plus “a side of the good ol church,” at 7pm. Then, The Sensational Barnes Brothers headline at 10pm. Does their name ring a bell? RTTB has recorded with Dan Auerbach, the lead singer of The Black Keys. Known for a musical blend of old and new, they are “a real gem in the gospel/soul scene.”

The Juneteenth holiday festivities start early on Sat, Jun 15.
