It’s about that time of year when the City Park Foundation announces all their free shows for the summer. The good folks over there have been organizing these events for several years now and it never disappoints. Much props go out to them. Below are some of the shows I’ll be hitting up. Be sure not to miss that Cold Crush Brothers show at the end of August! link
