Counter Culture turns 14
Local food trailer-turned-restaurant Counter Culture celebrates 14 years of business and the birthday of its owner, Sue, on the back patio of Tweedy’s Bar. This year has been a roller coaster for the business, so there's even more perseverance to celebrate. Highlights include special menu items, good vibes, and a live DJ set of ‘60s and ‘70s vinyl records by the birthday star herself. Admission to this event is free.
Steve Miller Band in concert
The Steve Miller Band celebrates the 50th anniversary of their iconic album, The Joker, at this special show. Fans can flood the Germania Insurance Amphitheater and expect another can't-miss and very rare show, like the band's two fantastic ACL tapings in September.
