Left Hand’s ultimate music and craft beer experience, the 7th Annual Leftapalooza, will be held on Saturday, August 5 from noon-10 p.m. in Longmont’s Roosevelt Park.
Leftapalooza features the Mile High Tribute Band Competition and brings together some of the most talented cover acts in the country to help raise funds and support for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For just $12, concertgoers can enjoy a full day’s worth of great music at the park as eight bands go head-to-head for the title of Top Mile High Tribute Band. The 2017 lineup brings you the music of AC/DC, Primus, Neil Young, Jethro Tull, David Bowie, Gov’t Mule, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Grateful Dead.
This year’s lineup features headliner Hell’s Belles, an all-female AC/DC tribute band. Angus Young, a founding member of AC/DC, said this world famous group was, “the best AC/DC band I ever heard.” The event will also feature Shakedown Street, the ever-popular Colorado tribute band for The Grateful Dead.
