Live music by the river? Please, and thank you to RiverLink and New Belgium Brewing. The two are teaming up to present a new concert series called RiverMUSIC (OK, it fits, but not so inspired). Fortunately the idea and the lineup make up for the name.
The concerts will be on a series of Fridays, starting at 5 p.m. at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza, 117 Riverside Drive. Along with the bands, New Belgium beer and cuisine from food trucks will be available. The organizers encourage folks to walk or bike to the concerts — or paddle up.
