It's not too often that the words "fun time" and "city hall" can be written in the same sentence, but today might just be one of those days.
That's because the kicks off tonight in front of Hyattsville's Municipal Building on Gallatin Street. The concerts are free and take place on the second Friday of every month starting at 6:30 p.m. and running through 8:30 p.m.
There will also be food provided by Outback Steakhouse of Hyattsville. There will also be a bouncy castle for the kids, beer and wine garden for the adults, and Mandy The Clown for everybody to enjoy.
Tonight sees The Magic Band come to town. If you're prone to lysergic acid flashbacks, you may remember the Magic Band as the ensemble which backed legendary psychadelic rock and blues musician Captain Beefheart from the mid 1960s to the early 1980s.
That last link takes you to a classic Beefheart composition. Here's how The Magic Band tours these days since reforming in 2003.
Next month, on Friday June 8, Blues Condition comes to town. This Virginia group covers classic blues artists ranging from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Muddy Watters and beyond. They also put out a pretty heavy hot blues album Swinging Blues and Rockin' Roots Music.
