After the grand opening on Sept. 15, Downtown Park will welcome a new concert series on the Moving Art Center Stage, which runs the last two Thursdays in September and first Thursday in October. The series was curated in partnership with KEXP DJ Sharlese Metcalf to highlight local, Pacific Northwest musical talent, including musicians that have ties to Redmond.

“This concert series brings fresh new music and fun to downtown Redmond,” Mayor John Marchione, said in a press release. “It’s a great way to spend a Thursday night with friends and family in the community’s new Downtown Park.”

Each evening’s concert takes place in the Redmond Moving Art Center designed by Brooklyn-based artist Janet Zweig. Community members are encouraged to bring their picnic blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy food from one of the many surrounding downtown restaurants.

Event schedule:

Sept. 20: Modern Pacific-Northwest rock

5:30-6:45 p.m: Tres Leches; 7:15-8:30 p.m.: Snuff Redux

Sept. 27: Emerging Pacific-Northwest R&B

5:45-7 p.m: Mirrorgloss; 7:30-8:30 p.m: ParisAlexa

Oct. 4: Acoustic music from the Pacific-Northwest

More information is coming soon.
