As the summer solstice approaches, get out your maxi dresses, Birkenstocks, and call up the long haired leaping gnomes, for a groovy indie summer in the beautiful Pioneer Valley! We call it the Happy Valley, and one of the reasons is because great bands come here, year after year. The Iron Horse Music Group always hosts a wealth of fresh tunes. This season, IHEG is giving a wide range of indie bands their fine debut, and offering veteran bands an intimate setting to connect with their fans. Happening right at your backyard garden party or screen door this summer, take a look and listen and hail the night before the longest day!

Indie summer in Northampton with exciting new music at the Iron Horse, Pearl Street, Calvin Theatre. The following is but a small subset of the dozens of shows on tap this summer in Iron Horse Entertainment's assorted music clubs, representing some of the newer artists out there or artists whose constant reinvention keeps them in these renegade ranks. Upcoming shows include Jim James, Gentlemen Hall, Rosco Bandana and Hurray For The Riff Raff.
