The Town of Cary is offering three live musical opportunities for fans of all ages and all kinds of genres on Saturday, July 21, 2018. And the cost ranges from free to $30.
Cary Live presents The Roosevelts beginning at 7 p.m. in the Downtown Park. This show is free and open to the public.
Indie-rock band The Roosevelts formed in Austin, Texas, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 2015. After releasing the band’s debut album in 2016, the group packed its schedule with a run of at-capacity tour dates with acts including Johnnyswim, Robert Earl Keen, Green River Ordinance and Grace Potter, a featured spot at the BMI Songwriters Festival in Key West, and spots at tastemaker festivals South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits Festival.
The band’s show provides a rousing, dance-worthy compilation of songs, but also features poignant tunes that scale the depth of their personality and communicate their story with remarkable power, according to the town’s website. “Having a charismatic ability to connect with fans and a genre-spanning set of songs, concert-goers can’t help but smile and dance – making The Roosevelts a band that music fans of any genre can’t afford to miss,” it reads.
While The Roosevelts are filling the park with the band’s unique alternative rock/pop sound as part of Cary Live, Fuzzy’s Empanadas, Big Mike’s BBQ, and Ice Cream Boss will all be on hand serving their delightful food, plus Bond Brothers and Chatham Street Wine Market will be serving beer and wine. Limited chairs will be available, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own.
