Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Elephant Wrecking Ball will play a free show at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco on Thursday, July 24. An amalgamation of heavy grooves, ambient dub and otherworldly sounds, Elephant Wrecking Ball transports listeners into familiar yet uncharted musical territories. A tight and disciplined drum and bass combo provide a ground-shaking foundation on which an effect-laden trombone applies layers of ethereal mayhem, spinning audiences into a state of submission and head-nodding satisfaction. The show starts at 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
