It’s sad to say it, but summer is coming up on its final few weeks. For many, school is right around the corner. Thankfully, the folks at the Liberty Music Fest are doing their best to cram as much live music into our lives as possible. The party’s going down from August 18th to August 21st at the Grape Room on Grape Street in Manayunk. During the course of the four days, more than 80 bands from 25 states will perform.
