Young Folks & Autumn Sweaters

[MUSIC] Every year, the Gallivan Center's Twilight Concert Series gives locals a reason to brave the summer heat each Thursday at 7 p.m. for an evening of free music, cheap beer and occasionally mind-blowing people-watching. And while I've always appreciated the opportunity to get outside, socialize and revel in the warm night air, I've never been all that impressed with the majority of Twilight's featured acts. Until now. 2007's lineup includes not only the usual suspects (Michael Franti, Robert Earl Keen) but also a hip buzz band with insanely tight whistling chops (Peter, Bjorn & John) and several indie favorites (Yo La Tengo, Fiery Furnaces, French Kicks). Did I mention these shows are free?! Word to the wise: Seating is first come, first served and begins as early as 1:30 p.m. The Twilight Market begins at 5 p.m. I hear they have some yummy veggie bowls and spicy Thai food available along with our good friend pizza.

Here's the complete schedule. Mark your calendars ... now! (Jamie Gadette)
