Let the free music begin

Since not all venues have announced their 2013 lineups yet, I’m not ready to post my annual list of free and cheap music in western NY and the Rochester areas.  I didn’t want anyone to miss out on the free music that’s happening this month so I’m posting this info a bit early.

LF_banner_mainThe 2013 Lilac Festival has a full lineup that kicked off last night.  These concerts run through next weekend.  See the website for details on when each artist is performing.
