FREE: Athens Summer Concert Series Kicks Off on Friday

0

The Athens Performing Arts Summer Concert Series returns to Riverfront Park in Athens this summer, kicking off on Friday (June 22) with blues-rockin’ guitarslinger Kristen Capolino.

While several tribute bands (Tramps Like Us, The Machine, Damn the Torpedoes) have crept into the line-up, Athens’ free concert series remains one of the best (and most overlooked) series in Greater Nippertown, boasting world-class blues (Walter Trout, the Nick Moss Band), rock (Wild Adriatic), Celtic (Enter the Haggis) and more.

All concerts will take place at 7pm on Fridays, except for the season finale with Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds on Thursday, August 30.

Here’s the Athens Performing Arts Summer Concert Series schedule for 2018:

Friday (June 22): Kristen Capolino
June 29: The Chris O’Leary Band
July 6: Enter the Haggis
July 20: Tramps Like Us
July 27: Walter Trout
August 3: The Machine
August 10: Wild Adriatic
August 17: Damn the Torpedoes
August 24: The Nick Moss Band
August 30 (Thursday): Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds
