FREE: Athens Summer Concert Series Kicks Off Tonight

The complete schedule of bands for the 2016 Athens Summer Concert Series has been announced. And once again, the fine folks down in Athens have put together one of the best free concert series in all of Greater Nippertown.

The concert series is jam-packed with some seriously blues-centric, rockin’ sounds, including such national acts as the Pat Travers Band, the Artimus Pyle Band and Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. All concerts take place at 7pm on Fridays in Athens Riverfront Park on Water Street in Athens.

    Wow that is the best free concert series by far! Albany/Schenectady/Troy please take note. Athens with probably a fraction of the budget has blown you away.

  2. Mike Leonard says:

    I’d have to (sadly) say, that’s the best line-up of free shows around. Our band played down there…it was one of our biggest shows ever. Great place!
