Sun's Out, Get Out

Concerts at the Mural Kick Off this Friday

Free outdoor shows + great local acts + beer garden = yes.

By Laura Dannen August 3, 2011

Concerts at the Mural return August 2.

From the Seattle Summer Events Guide:

Concerts at the Mural, the annual Friday-night summer series at Seattle Center’s Mural Amphitheatre, opens August 5 with a fury: alt-country band the Maldives and chamber pop crew Hey Marseilles and the tambourine-lovin’ Black Whales split the bill. We’d pay to see just one of those local acts onstage—and luckily, we don’t have to drop a dime for any of these concerts. Admission is free, but you’ll have to pay a little at the beer/wine garden and for Skillet Street Food. Doors open at 5 and shows start at 6, except for this Saturday’s BBQ, which kicks off at 2.

Here’s the full lineup:

Aug 5 Featuring the Maldives, Hey Marseilles, and Black Whales.
Aug 6 KEXP BBQ featuring Fool’s Gold, Capsula, Virgin Islands, and Mad Rad.
Aug 12 Featuring Seapony, Gold Leaves, and Math and Physics Club.
Aug 19 Featuring Black Mountain, My Goodness, and Whalebones.
Aug 26 Pickwick, Drew Grow & the Pastors’ Wives, and Ravenna Woods.
