Tri-State Happenings: Outdoor music, jazz and art set for this weekend


As the pandemic continues to evolve and the city, region and nation open up more and more, attending and supporting live events benefits everyone. Here is what is going on in the Tri-State in the coming days.

The outdoor Pullman Square Summer Concert Series continues Thursday night, June 10. Taking place every Thursday this summer from 6 to 9 p.m., the series is a great way to kick off the weekend while supporting live music. For Thursday’s concert, the band My Only Cab Ride brings their fun and unique rock and roll to the outdoor stage.

On Friday, June 11, Lexington, Kentucky-based musician Brandon Costello will perform from 9 to 11 p.m. at Black Sheep Burrito & Brews at 279 9th St. The show is free but tips for the artists are appreciated.
