University Place has a long tradition of free summer concerts. This year they’re changing it up by having a spring and fall concert series instead. Every Thursday in April and October, from 6pm to 9pm, there will be live music at the bandstand next to the lake. Great move to avoid that summer heat! University Place is at the corner of W.T. Harris Boulevard and North Tryon Street (Route 29.) It features many restaurants, shops, a lake to walk around or paddle-boat in, and a small playground.

The April schedule:

April 5th – Trial by Fire (A Journey Tribute Band)

April 12th – Cloud 9 (90s Variety)

April 19th – Pushh to play from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm lakeside and then Guitar Center Grand Opening Concert at Guitar Center from 7:00 pm -9:00 pm

April 26th – George Hatcher Band (national act – southern rock).
