There is no better place to get a funky start to the freedom festivities then to go to The Mint for the launch of Stanton Moore's residency. The Galactic super drummer is joined by Wil Blades and Meters' guitarist Leo Nocentelli. If you can't handle the funk, House of Vibe at Harvelle's probably won't be the right decision either.
If you're anxious for fireworks - then Hollywood Bowl for Josh Groban and LA Phil is not a bad bet. If you prefer your explosions of the bass and trap variety - then Downlink and Etc! Etc! at Yost Theater is for you.
Last, but certainly not least, the Marley bloodline makes an appearance at Echoplex for Dub Club as Damian Marley and Stephen Marley host a night featuring Ghetto Youths Crew, Christopher Ellis, Black Am I, Jo Mensa and special guests!
