This concert series is hitting the road this summer. A mobile stage will take artists around in different neighborhoods each Wednesday through the rest of the summer. The first mobile concert is Wednesday, July 6 in the Martin Drive Neighborhood, featuring musical act Venus Rising.

This concert series happens in a community garden on the northwest side of town. There will be a different band every Thursday night throughout the month of July.
