Let’s face it.  After Make Music Day, and all the other stuff that’s been going on, you’ll be wanting to enjoy the fourth of July this year with a party at your pad, to really soak in all the stuff this summer has been offering so far.  Just about every BBQ in this town will be bubbling with amazing tunes on the stereo, and that kind of musical gathering is probably something you won’t find anywhere else.  I can almost guarantee you know someone who is going to have bands in their backyard, and you can probably get a jam session going with the other party attendees, too.  Going to see music is great.  Listening to it in your backyard with friends is even better.
