There’s a punk-infused wit within the country music style of Caroline Rose. She teeters on the brink of rockabilly and rock and her videos veer between poignant and entertaining.

Her music is in line with that of Shovels & Rope. (Jeff Hahne)

SQUIRT DAY PARTY
The Squirt Day Parties aren’t only known for being a great event to cool off at — leave your “I’m too cool for water guns” attitudes at home and prepare to get hit with super soakers — they’re also known for stellar music lineups. This one’s headlined by Three 6 Mafia’s sole female member, Gangsta Boo. Also performing on this afternoon are Rapper Shane (formerly known as Stranger Day) and Elevator Jay. And did we mention it’s free? (Jeff Hahne)
