Promenade to the riverfront for tunes, brews
Out and About
June 17, 2020
Trubble Riverside Café & Tap continues to flourish at the grounds of Promenade Park with their tasty snacks, mouth-watering brews, and picturesque view of the St. Marys River.
Recently, they started to showcase Fort Wayne’s impressive spectrum of musicians with concerts every Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Grab a bite and a beer in the café and head to the bier garden for some tunes in the sun.
The lineup of performers includes Randy Spencer on June 22, Kenny Taylor on June 29, Mickyle James on July 6, Justin Bailey on July 13, Adam Baker on July 20, Dan Smyth on July 27, and Lindsey Becker on Aug. 3.
The lunchtime concerts are free and open to all.
The Fort Wayne Indoor presents “Art in the Skatepark 3” on Saturday, July 18, from 5-8 p.m. This fun-for-all evening includes art, music, food, and entertainment coordinated by local artist Amber Marie Cox. Like years past, organizers collect used and broken skateboards throughout the year and hand them over to local and non-local artists to transform them into amazing art.
These pieces will be auctioned off that evening with proceeds benefiting the indoor skatepark. The silent auction will begin at 5 p.m. when doors open. Winners are announced at 7:30 p.m.
With the design pool endless and the inspiration vast, just wait until you see what these artists come up with. These unique skate decks would look good above anyone’s mantel. The Fort Wayne Indoor is at 1412 S. Anthony Blvd.
Heavy Hitters at the Muse
The Muse on Main is back in the saddle with supplying the Fort with all-ages entertainment.
On the weekend of June 20 and 21, the venue will have an array of heavy hitters set to perform for the “Giants No Longer at Rest Music Fest.”
Starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, live music will get under way from the likes of Static Fly, Damage, In Blood, Anti-Clutch, Desecrated, and Blood Crown Serpent. At the same time on Sunday, Damage, Coffin Witch, Tri-State Killing Spree, Molech, and Imaginary Friends will take to the stage.
Tickets for each show are $8 in advance at themuseonmain.com and $10 at the door. You have been thirsty for live music, so here you go!
Livestreaming from Saskatoon
The Muse on Main was also set to host Alien to the Ignorant from Saskatoon, Canada, next month, but because the Canada-U.S. border is closed, they had to scrap the tour for the time being.
Instead, the post-hardcore band will livestream unique sets on the Facebook pages of different venues they were set to visit during their tour.
If you are a fan of the band, make sure to hop on The Muse on Main page on Monday, July 6, at 8 p.m. to catch a special performance by the band. The good news is that they do plan to come to town once things clear up, so be on the lookout for that in the future.
