HERE'S ANOTHER REASON the local music scene is alive and well - tonight kicks off the Quincy Park District's outdoor concert season.
Liz Bentley is playing tonight from 7 to 8:30 in beautiful South Park. The Park District web page has a list of the Thursday night shows during the summer, with four shows in all and local band Raised On Radio playing next Thursday. Don't forget the Quincy Park Band is playing on Wednesday nights at Madison Park.
Blues In The District acoustic shows, and she did her usual amazing job. She's planning a move to Nashville to attend school and check out the music scene - again, she's one of those talented young performers who is good enough to make it.
I've long thought South Park makes for a great music venue, depending where they put the band. Liz is playing in the brick gazebo not far from the main picnic shelter and playground area. South Park is one of those classic layouts and picture perfect spots, with lots of trees and space to spread out.
It's another warm night so get there early, bring bug spray and a blanket, and find a nice shady spot to watch one of Quincy's best young performers.
