Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Alex Paul and the Firewall will play a free show at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco on Thursday, July 10. Hailing from Durango, Alex Paul and the Firewall was forged in the fires of a mutual affinity for music with a groove to it. With a wide array of influences and inspirations, they bring a genre-eluding blend of rock, funk, Americana and blues, with lyrics sung from the soul and rhythms that one almost can’t help but want to dance to. The music starts at 9 p.m., and there’s no cover. Visit for more information.
