Best Free Blues

KGSR's Blues on the Green

If your motto is "If it's for free, it's for me," then you probably went to at least one of KGSR's Blues on the Green summer concerts. From June through August, the radio station sponsors free shows at Zilker Park every other Wednesday. Fans of blues and free things converge at the park's Rock Island, unfold the lawn chairs and blankets, enjoy the music, and watch the sky go from blue to purple to black. This year, the series included Eric Johnson, Marcia Ball, Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins, and more. The series will be back again next summer.
