Here’s a list of the live music (dozens of choices). The whole shebang goes from 6pm to midnight and is one of the best entertainment values of the year.

The Zip Line Kid and I are still talking about how much fun we had looking through the telescopes set up by the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club at Dock Sq.

Plenty of opportunities to get into the party spirit tonight (see complete live music listings here). Might be a good time to check out Mike O’Connell and his excellent band at Minglewood starting at 9pm.
