Live Music in Lakeland This Weekend

You may have heard that Swan Brewing, opening Friday night, will offer a bevy of beers brewed straight outta Lakeland, but you might not know that the brewery/taproom plans to host live music six days a week. 

Starting with Quittin’ Time playing its grand-opening party, the new downtown venue at 115 W. Pine St. is scheduling music every day of the week except Mondays. Its Facebook page lists bookings for the next month.

Depending on weather and size of the group, musicians might play under the illuminated swan logo beyond the long vintage bar inside the converted auto repair shop or on the patio overlooking Lake Wire, partner/spokesbrewer Dan Thumberg says.

Acts scheduled this weekend after opening night are Billy Needs a Beard on Saturday at 7 and Wiley, PJ and the Mazz on Sunday at 2.

Other music highlights this week include:
