NORTH CENTER — North Center residents can enjoy live music during a free Wednesday night concert series this summer.
The series kicks off with a performance by The Polkaholics 7 p.m. Wednesday at North Center Town Square, 4100 N. Damen Ave. Local bands will perform at the same time and place Wednesdays through Aug. 10, said Eileen Keleghan, executive director of the North Center Chamber of Commerce.
“Bring a chair or blanket, gather your family and join us,” Keleghan said.
This rest of this year’s lineup:
• July 13: Roseloft
• July 20: Silvertone
• July 27: Fumée
• Aug. 3: The Black Oil Brothers
• Aug. 10: Ludlow
Visit the chamber’s website for more information on the concert series.
North Center’s Town Square opened in 2020 with a performance area featuring a stage and canopy, a turf sitting area, benches, lighting, trees and landscaping.
The $2 million project was created after the chamber, residents, business owners and local government officials pushed for an accessible, year-round public space by closing a small segment of West Belle Plaine Avenue between North Lincoln Avenue and North Damen Avenue.
