Nitefall on the river lineup!

April 27, 2010 —

What’s better than live tunes outdoors in a beautiful spot? Not much! That’s why I think Nitefall On The River is so cool! The schedule for this year was just announced.

The fun begins May 27 (my birthday) with the Bodeans, then continues each Thursday through July 29. After the first show it’s Tonic, Ryan Star, Alex Band, JJ Grey, Sister Hazel, Ingrid Michaelson, Vertical Horizon, the Old 97s and Barenaked Ladies!

All tickets are under $20. I recently saw Ingrid at People’s on Court & loved her show. I’ll see her a third time at Nitefall, for sure! And I’m really excited to see BNL live! What fun!

Bring on summer!
