Though Milwaukee seems to have every weekend covered in terms of entertainment, it’s always refreshing to see bands perform in the city’s collection of weeknight concerts. Events like Chill On The Hill, Jazz In The Park, Tosa Nights, River Rhythms, Musical Mondays, and Washington Park Wednesdays help tide over weekend warriors and satisfy suburban commuters who want to some enjoy some of the city’s talent before Friday rolls around.
Adding to that weekday tradition is The North End‘s Denim Park summer concert series. Every Wednesday between July 17 and August 28, a diverse collection of performers will take the stage on the corner of Water and Pleasant streets to play free, family-friendly shows. This year, a total of seven bands will play over the course of as many nights.
From the zydeco sounds of Vitrolum Republic to the formidable indie-folk stylings of Listening Party and the undeniably awesome Extra Crispy Brass Band, there’s a reason to head to Denim Park at 6 p.m. each Wednesday between now and the end of August. Here’s who’s playing this year’s Denim Park Summer Concert Series:
July 17: Mera Storm
July 24: Listening Party
July 31: Sweet Sheiks
August 7: Beautiful Collide
August 14: Virtolum Republic
August 21: Logan’s Run
August 28: Extra Crispy Brass Band
