Summer Concert Series at Newtown Park – Electric Avenue
September 3 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Mark Burkhalter Park Amphitheater provides a delightful venue for the city-sponsored Summer Concerts. While food and non-alcoholic drinks may be brought in, contracted vendors provide a variety of catered food and beverages, including beer and wine. Seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome on the terraced lawn. The concerts are free.
Electric Avenue –
We don’t get to repeat even one minute of our time here. No do-overs. Movies can provide ‘make-believe’ time machines in 2D, but what if you could relive all of the youthful energy and sonic celebration that was 1980s New Wave & Radio Pop, without needing 1.21 GW of power at 88mph? Every sound. Every nuance. Every feeling.
“If you close your eyes it’s 1985. This band is unbelievable.”
Christine Murphy, Manchester, CT
