Wednesday saw the Waterfront jam packed with concert goers as WFPK radio in conjunction with Waterfront Development Corporation and Friends of the Waterfront held their 10th anniversary concert on the breezy evening.
The event drew countless Kentuckians as parking lots and street parking yielded few spots. Inside vendors offered food and fun for all ages.
For ten years now WFPK’s summer concert series has offered a place for new music lovers to meet and congregate around the common interest of free concerts.
In the past three years alone the stage presented artists such as blues rocker Paul Thorn, indie notables VHS or Beta, alt-country stars Josh Ritter and Todd Snider, among many others.
Yesterday’s show really kicked off at six with the introduction of Scars on ’45, who were followed by Abigail Washburn at 7:30 and taking the headliner spot was Nicole Atkins at 9.
