By now, you’ve probably worn a t-shirt in the evening and have spent countless hours, and tissues, trying to find the balance between a runny nose and complete congestion. Summer in Louisville is beginning. While allergies are an all-to-well-known rite of the changing of the seasons here, a fun annual tradition is gearing back up as well. WPFK and The Waterfront Development Corporation are bringing back Waterfront Wednesdays on April 27 with performances by Ohio pop quartet Walk the Moon, Texas singer and songwriter Sara Jaffe, and local electro-pop group The Deloreans.
This year is the 10th anniversary of this free summer concert series, and while the entire line-up hasn’t been released yet, you already know when to be down at Harbor Lawn - the concerts will take place the last Wednesday of every month at 5 p.m. until September (April 27, May 25, June 29, July 27, August 31). For September, the show has already been rescheduled to September 21 in observance of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.
The Harbor Lawn has been packed every last Wednesday in the summer for years now, and with little surprise. Waterfront Wednesdays have hosted acts like My Morning Jacket, Old Crow Medicine Show, the Avett Brothers, Drive by Truckers, and more.
