What and who is it?

FREE Thursday evening outdoor concert in the park featuring three great bands.

Oakland, CA retro-rock-garage-doo-wop-soul-punk-quartet Shannon & The Clams headlines the July 20 show. Rolling Stone called their most recent album, Year Of The Spider, “refreshing, jubilant, and required listening for any music-lover." Their live performances never disappoint.

Say She She is a seven-piece group, led by three women, with incredible songs, grooves, and vocals. They are based in Brooklyn, NY.  DIY rocker Abby Jeanne from Milwaukee opens the show at 6:00 PM.

When is it?
