Tuesday in the Park

Artpark‘s slate looks pretty good for the coming months. Set aside the fact that all these folks used to be a lot more expensive (Okay, it looks like the Learning Annex presents Classic Rock), this ain’t bad.

I don’t have any trouble with them charging a little to moderate the crowds. One of the downsides of so much free music is there is sometimes a heavy population of folks there just to be there, not to hear the tunes. I’m not the biggest fan of going to a venue to watch tv either. So, $5 to see Steve Miller or Peter Frampton with like minded souls, I’m down with that.

The Tuesday concert lineup includes:

June 19: Kansas.

June 26: Foreigner.

July 3: Huey Lewis and The News.

July 10: Sublime with Rome.

July 17: YES with Procol Harum.

July 24: Heart.

July 31: Steve Miller Band.

Aug. 7: Peter Frampton.

Aug. 14: Sheryl Crow.

Aug. 21: Roger Hodgson, the voice of Supertramp.

Aug. 28: The Machine performs Pink Floyd.

Sept. 4: The Charlie Daniels Band.

It’s funny because with the recent arts groups trying to get some money from the city there is a lot of griping in the Buffalo News Forums about how those groups should strive for self-sufficiency.  Well, here’s Artpark doing just that and folks are carping on what was once free has a bit of a charge to it.

Never seen Yes, gonna change that.
