43 Lake Ave Ext, Danbury, CT 06811. Phone: 2038379226.

Brews & BBQ is back! Come out on Saturday, July 22nd at Ives Concert Park in Danbury to celebrate the change of the seasons with the ultimate spring bash featuring BBQ, craft beer and live music from Spin Doctors! Gates open at 3pm and the event runs until 9pm. Advance tickets are $15. Tickets at the door are $20. You think you know the Spin Doctors. Think again. When the legendary New York quartet release "If The River Was Whiskey" on May 14th through Ruf Records, casual fans will discover the secret past the hardcore have never forgotten. To the wider world, the Doctors might be the multi-million-selling icons behind hits like Two Princes and Little Miss Can't Be Wrong, not to mention the classic Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. But in 2013, Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass) are reconnecting with the flat-broke twenty-somethings who scraped for dollars at the sharp end of the Big Apple blues circuit. The Spin Doctors have come full-circle.

Brookfield Craft Center Home and Away Photo Show of Colin Harrison

06/10/2017 to 07/02/2017

286 Whisconier Road, Brookfield, CT Phone: 203-775-4526.

Colin and his wife Lynn have lived in Brookfield since October 1982 and have put down roots here. They also have a long and deep affection for Switzerland, where they lived at the time of their wedding, where they still have many close friends, and where they maintain a tiny home in the alpine village of Lauterbrunnen, some 10 miles south of Interlaken. This exhibition compares and contrasts these two homes - the intimate scale and colonial history of New England and the magnificence of the ancient glacial valleys and mountains of Lauterbrunnen. It is their hope that viewers enjoy these scenes from their lives at home and away. Please join Colin and friends for an opening event and reception, June 10th from 5-8pm

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, HAIR, the American Tribal Love Rock Musical, made its world premiere in 1967. HAIR celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, longhaired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like "Aquarius," "Good Morning, Starshine," "Hair," "I Got Life," and "Let the Sun Shine."
