I think it was Jack Kerouac who said, “Why can’t we have a rager in our hometown with young and great acts like Avolfo, Robin Lane, Senseless Optimism, Tim Hall and load and load more?” OK, I made it. But I didn’t make it: Lowell’s motto is “art is the slave of human good,” and this celebration meets it. Celebrate Kerouac, art and music at event spaces, bars, cafes and galleries throughout the city.
