Free mu­sic

In­de­pen­dence Day Week­end is not only for look­ing back at our his­tory, when brave men fought tyranny to set the stage for a great na­tion, but look­ing for­ward to the fu­ture in this land of in­de­pen­dent thinkers, jazz and men in thongs.

Up your al­ley

It took some vi­sion to see an empty al­ley as a can­vas for cre­at­ing com­mu­nity in down­town West Palm Beach, but Tacos and Hip Hop is a dream re­al­ized. The sort-of monthly party cel­e­brates two years of mu­sic, food and ca­ma­raderie on Fri­day at Sub­cul­ture Cof­fee on Clema­tis Street, with DJ Dan Read spin­ning early, Selecta Steve and DDubz later, Zip­i­tio’s tacos all night. The event runs 6 p.m.-12:30 a.m., with a $5 cover for those ages 18-20. Visit Face­book.com/Sub­cul­tureCof­fee.
