Live and Local Music for August 16-18

Ozarks Independent is a big believer in supporting our local businesses, charities and artists. It’s in that spirit we present you a list of the live music performances that are taking place this weekend, so you can go out and support our local musicians.

The list is curated by local musician Joe Dillstrom, who has just released a new album, “Highways & Byways.” Joe is playing this Friday with Ryan Dunn at Hold Fast Brewing from 7-9 p.m. and Saturday at Leaky Roof Meadery in Buffalo from 6-9 p.m..

Our headline photo artist is Meg Burns, playing at the Aviary Cafe in Farmer’s Park Friday night from 6-8 p.m.. (Photo from her facebook page.)
