Coming this weekend

Daybreak: After years of musical inactivity, Mystic musician Rich Freitas, renowned for his work in bands 17 Relics, Sodium Lights, Low-Beam and Slander, returns with his solo recording "Revenge."
Business: With some coveted venues still backed up because of rescheduled weddings, and with more couples traveling again for destination ceremonies, an uptick in weekday nuptials has carried into 2022.
