SAT, 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. There will also be activities, food trucks, and vendors 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 btings 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.”

 

SAT-SUN, JUNE 15-16

Join the folks at Kung Fu Tea (101 E Abram St, Ste 170, @KFTArlingtonTX) for Arlington’s Crossing Into Summer noon-9pm Sat-Sun, Jun 15-16.
