The Two-Block party takes over downtown Rockford at the intersection of State St. and Main St. on July 11 and 12 with live music, local artists, and food. On Friday night, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus takes the stage with My God the Heat and Bloom; and Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts, Derek Luttrell, Kelly Steward, and the kids of School of Rock serenade crowds on Saturday night.
District Bar & Grill
District Bar & Grill's menu is full of old familiars done well. For customers hunkered down at the bar, a range of appetizers can hit the spot, like potato skins loaded with crispy bacon, two cheeses, and tangy lime sour cream. More substantial meals can be anchored with a classic cobb salad, a half-pound burger topped with swiss and sautéed mushrooms, barbecue pulled pork, or golden-brown fried cod.
The restaurant also delivers on the entertainment front. Numerous flat-screen TVs broadcast all manner of professional and college sports for rapt crowds, while a pool table and dart boards help tide them over during halftime. A raised stage hosts DJ sets, local acts, and live music by nationally touring artists like rockers Trapt and up-and-coming country star Eric Paslay. As a supporter of Rockford's Main Street District, a community organization that promotes the downtown area, District Bar & Grill participates in its Two-Block Parties, which take place multiple times a year and hosts bands from around the country.
