While some of the outdoor summertime concert series are beginning to wind down – Albany’s Alive at Five, for example, serves up former Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk as the last concert of the series on Thursday – some others are just getting started.

Like down in Beacon, where the month-long Rhythm On the Riverfront concert series kicks off on Thursday (August 4) with singer-songwriter Amy Correia.
