Thanks to OP readers for being a sponsor of the Summer Series. The last concert will be at Hargraves Center, the Summer Events Advisory Committee wanted to have an event at the west end of downtown.

That was a nice show last night. At first I was suprised that no police were there to tell us to act right. Then I was pleased that we could act right with out being told to. I saw no booze and no litter. Dogs we kept on leashs. Turn out was weak. I think over time word will get out.

Not sure why you thought there would be a large police presence there, but anyway I agree it was a nice show. Dub Addis was great and the whole thing was very well-organized.

Next week is a soccer demo, banghra DJ, and then Bend it Like Beckham. Should be awesome. The week after that is blues master Cool John Ferguson, since his original show was rained out.
