Anyone who has been reading this blog since since about 2007 knows we've never been big fans of the annual Raleigh Downtown Live summer concert series, but the bad news about the event is still a bit of a bummer. News has come via On the Beat that the concert series will not be happening this year due to the new bookings going on with the new downtown amphitheatre.
It appears that a new mid-week free concert series may pop up for the summer which has the potential to be better than the bigger series. There are many local bands I'd rather head downtown to catch rather than Eve 6 or Filter. We'll keep you posted on this new series.
