Free Summertime Sounds: KGSR’s Blues on the Green

What's New — By Tara Hall on June 8, 2010 at 9:52 pm

Ready for some free live music under the stars?

Tomorrow Next week (6/16) begins the 20th season of KGSR’s Blues on the Green at Zilker Park near downtown. A yet-to-be-announced act will kick off the summertime tradition, which will take place every Wednesday evening, through August 18. [Though the event is ‘rain or shine,’ the concert can be called due to lightning or flash flooding.] Shows begin promptly at 7:30p each week; the current schedule is shown below.

So pack up a picnic (or grab some local grub from onsite vendors, like Stubb’s Barbecue, Amy’s Ice Creams and Gatti’s Pizza), a blanket, lawn chairs and the kids and come on down. Just be sure to leave any glass, alcohol, styrofoam or weapons at home!

Parking at Zilker Park can be a headache, so, if riding your bike is out of the question, park at One Texas Center (505 Barton Springs Rd) and enjoy a leisurely stroll into the park.
