Louisville’s Waterfront Wednesday Concert Series wraps up September 30th


Louisville, Ky., – WFPK has announced the September 30th line up for its popular Waterfront Wednesday Concert Series.  The series is a monthly free concert on the Big Four Lawn in Louisville Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four® Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge.

This concert will feature Wax Fang, Here We Go Magic and Vandaveer. It’s sponsored by Goose Island Brewing Company, MINI of Louisville, Republic Bank, Passport Health Plan and Friends of the Waterfront. Additional support comes from Old 502 Winery, Speed Museum and Taxi 7.

Wax Fang demonstrates a curious penchant for not only harmoniously wedding concept and sound, but then properly delivering it to its listeners.— Max Green, Popstache

Here We Go Magic attack their shape-shifting sounds with enthusiasm and purpose, applying details like the honking keyboard line in “Old World United” and “Hibernation”‘s bouncy bass to flesh out songs rather than as affectations. — Larry Fitzmaurice, Pitchfork

“Nakedly poetic, refreshingly engaged and swimmingly delivered, Vandaveer’s latest makes heavy things light, shines light into places we might prefer to keep covered and offers jaunty tunes for such soulful spelunking.” — The Dirty Impound

The Big Four® Lawn “opens” at 5pm, and the music begins promptly at 6pm. This is the last concert of the 2015 season.

To alleviate parking congestion caused by the KY/IN Bridges project, a free trolley service, courtesy of Republic Bank, will be offered between Witherspoon and the Big Four Lawn for people who park West of I-65. The Republic Bank Easy Trolley will run a continuous loop between 6:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Outside alcohol is prohibited.  No coolers, glass or pets allowed in the event area of the Big Four Lawn. For more information, please call (502) 814-6519.

The Waterfront Development Corporation (WDC) and WFPK first partnered in 2002 to produce an innovative concert series that showcased local and emerging national recording artists as heard on radio station 91.9 WFPK.  Each free concert attracts large audiences to mingle, dance and enjoy the river in a family-friendly park atmosphere with a cash bar and upscale festival fare.  The event has become a thriving city institution, drawing thousands to Waterfront Park and helping Louisville secure an international award as a top city for festivals.  In addition, the Southeast Tourism Society selected WFPK Waterfront Wednesday® as one of their Top 20 Events.
