Live music to look forward to in the next few days at downtown theater
As the largest live music venue in town that serves beer in tallboy format, the Lyric Theatre is perhaps the perfect setting for shows in the next few days that range from the cerebral to the stoopid. Where else can so many people swarm to enjoy the massive appeal of these artists’ life dreams played out for you on a big stage, through a great sound system, as they want you to hear it? It’s all live, not Memorex. Purchase tickets at the Lyric Theatre site.
