Up on the Rooftop...or Rather, The Parking Garage

If you missed the Rooftop Concert Series at Provo Town Square last year, you just may want to mark your calendars for this year. Beside being really cool, it's FREE!
Court and I are on this year's crew/committee and the line-up is great. It is geared to the local university student demographic, but last year I looked around and noticed I wasn't the only "boomer" present. And the styles of music this year are diverse enough to appeal to different tastes.

The concerts were started by my friend, Courtney Kendrick (cjane enjoy it) as a thank you to the community and as a way to bring people downtown to see what it has to offer by way of local eateries and businesses. It is coordinated with the traditional First Weekend Gallery Strolls.

I'm particularly excited about the second concert which will feature our friend (a sponsor and member of the planning committee) Mindy Gledhill. (Her new CD is awesome!) Mindy's music will take you away to your favorite beach or to an afternoon at a European Cafe. Love her pure, delightful voice.

And joining Mindy will be Meghan Smith, the talented songstress from Nova Scotia . (If you're familiar with the soundtrack from "500 Days of Summer" you've heard her.) These two singers will be the perfect blend for a summer evening in Provo.

Here's the line-up:

May 6th - Fictionist with Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm
June 3rd - Meaghan Smith with Mindy Gledhill
July 1st - The Abbey Road Show with Sarah Sample
August 5th - Joshua James
September 2nd - Neon Trees
October 7th - Lower Lights (A Hymn Revival)

Address: Rooftop of the parking terrace at 100 North and 100 West
Time: 8:00 p.m.
*A bonus to the concert is a beautiful view of our "Y" mountain.
