10 CNY Events Taking the Stage This Weekend

This weekend’s events are perfect to combat the rainy weather.

Plagued with too much to do this weekend, a stage theme was opted for. The weather is going to be windy, rainy and the temperature will be dropping daily, albeit it isn’t a significant drop. It’ll be a great weekend to check out some indoor activities, and I hope you do.

Editor’s Picks:

When it comes to country music, I’m awfully particular. I dislike the genre more often than not. However, when it’s done right — energetic, honest and raw — I love it. These two singer-songwriters and storytellers embody that country appeal with Americana, folk and bluegrass ingredients.
