June 7: Art Throwdown & Monster Drawing Rally
Think of it as Iron Chef but for artists. The Monster Drawing Rally is part performance, part art-walk, part art sale, and is sure to be one of Delray Beach’s liveliest fun-raising events. During the Monster Drawing Rally, artists create artworks from start-to-finish in front of a live audience. Artwork can be purchased for $30 as soon as they are finished. Like any party, there will be pizza, music and beer. For more information, click here.
June 8: Hootie & the Blowfish
The easy-rocking quartet that implored ’90s audiences to “Hold My Hand” returns with a summer tour in honor of one of the best-selling records of all time. Hootie & the Blowfish will perform at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach June 8, having reunited after a 10-year hiatus to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Cracked Rear View, an album that contains chart-toppers like “Let Her Cry” and “I Only Wanna Be With You” and earned the group two Grammys. In a twist sure to please Gen Xers across South Florida, Hootie will welcome special guest Barenaked Ladies. The Canadian rockers are perhaps most famous for their 1998 humorous hit “One Week,” which features such time-stamped lyrics as “Watchin’ X-Files with no lights on, we’re dans la maison, I hope the Smoking Man’s in this one.” In the years since, they’ve continued to record and even released a children’s album, Snacktime!, in 2008.
