As a sponsor of Music & Art in Wright Park, the Weekly Volcano will highlight a band or two every day until the Aug. 15 show, which runs noon to 8 p.m.
TodayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Music & Art in Wright Park band I'm pushing on you is James Hilborne and the Painkillers.

HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a taste of the musical stylings of James Hilborne and the Painkillers:
