Calling all south-central Pa. Mefites: JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound will be performing a free concert on Sunday, August 15 in Lancaster, Pa. as a part of the Long's Park Summer Music Series! Let's meet up!
JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound is a terrific post-punk soul band (here's their cover of Wilco's "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart"), and they'll be performing a free* outdoor show on a summer evening at a venue easily accessible from major highways. Need more? Bring the family! You can set up lawn chairs or a blanket and let the kids run around; there's a playground directly behind the audience area. MORE, you say? Food trucks, people. Yummy, yummy food trucks, parked right next to the sitting area. Free parking! Bring a picnic! Bring a Frisbee!

Show starts at 7:30, but I'm planning on arriving early (like 5:30 or so) with a couple of friends. Parking takes a bit, especially closer to showtime, and it's a good idea to stake out a seating area in advance. Blankets are great--lawn chairs are even better.

Shows go on unless the weather is going to be really bad. If there's a chance of rain, bring appropriate gear.

Hope to see you there!

* Donations happily accepted, but voluntary.
