Nitefall On The River

Every summer, the wonderful people over at Simon Estes Amphitheater puts a series of concerts featuring regional and national acts. It's like Shakespeare In The Park: you bring your lawn chair, you get drunk in public while the sun's still out, you dance around, make a fool of yourself. Good times.

I'm not really sure who organizes it, but I doubt it's the same people in-charge of the 80/35 Music Festival. It is possible it's the city's Parks & Rec.

The last time I went to one of these concerts was about 4 or 5 years ago. My friend, Beau, wanted to see Natasha Bedingfield. He was obsessed with Pockets Full of Sunshine since watching Easy A. I suffered through her opening act (Kat Graham) and a selection of her music. By the time she got to Pocket... it started raining!

Guess her pockets aren't full of sunshine.

This year, I'm actually quite impressed by the line-up. Here are some of the acts that I wouldn't mind seeing.

Yes, I like Ingrid Michaelson. Deal with it. 

I am most excited to see Portugal, the Man and STRFKR. I've seen Grouplove before, but I wouldn't mind seeing them again. I do like their new song "Shark Attack".
