Stop and smell the live mu­sic

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Showtime - Palm Beach - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Cran­dell

La­bor Day Week­end is about hon­or­ing the value of a day’s work and the brother­hood that united years ago to fight for the sanc­tity of things we take for granted, like three­day week­ends. It’s also about lay­ing your bur­den down and tak­ing that ex­tra day to en­joy the fruits of your la­bor, which may be dis­tilled down to a sim­ple night out with friends. This par­tic­u­lar week­end in­vites all kinds of op­por­tu­ni­ties to get to­gether over the shared ex­pe­ri­ence of live mu­sic, which has restora­tive pow­ers that should not be un­der­es­ti­mated.
