Two time Grammy Award Winner Ben Harper will be at the Boston Opera House for one night on Friday, October 5. A man of many talents, Harper has been writing his own music since he was twelve and plays the guitar. His eclectic music includes sounds from blues, folk, soul, reggae and rock. He has a total of 11 studio albums and four live albums. He has been constantly on tour since the 1990s which has allowed him to have a solid, dedicated fan base. The show starts at 7:30pm.

On Saturday, October 6, Los Lonely Boys will be at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre for one night of celebration. The show will be based around their recently released fourth studio album “Rockpango.” Rockpango is a term coined by Los Lonely Boys that combines fandango (a beat loving celebration) and huapango (an infectious Latin rhythm) with a “full-scale Tex-Mex American roots rock party galore.” With this type of music, the Texican rock’n’roll trio of brothers is sure to entertain.

Dispatch is one of the biggest independent rock bands in history and is coming to Agganis Arena on Saturday, October 6. The band released their first full-length studio album in 12 years, “Circles Around the Sun,” this past August. The album is said to be an eclectic all-American rock and roll record that delivers the gutsy storytelling, radiant harmonies, and good-time grooves that Dispatch are loved for. They’ll only be in Boston for one night, show starting at 8pm.

The New England Patriots are back at Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium to faceoff the Denver Broncos this Sunday, October 7. The game starts at 4:15pm.
