If you love rock, metal and alternative music, get to Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum for A.U.R.A. Fest featuring more than a dozen bands from around the country. This all-day concert is put on by Coastal Rock Productions, which brings us alternative, all-ages shows year-round. Get the details here.

For more classic tunes, look no further than the annual American Traditions Competition, which kicks off with a Judge's Concert and several nights of competition from Feb. 20-24. There are 27 competitors this year, and since it's so tough just to be selected, audiences are surely in for a treat each night. See the full schedule here
