When the Artpark lineup was fully announced and Aretha Franklin appeared on it for a Tuesday show, I had to do a double take. Surely a star of her caliber would be playing the indoor venue and not outdoors. But Tuesday evening as the hot day wore down there she was alongside conductor HB Barnum and his orchestra delivering her trademark vocals to the Artpark faithful. Continue reading

Once in a while you go to cover a band and you really don’t expect too much. Such was the case at Canalside on Thursday with the appearance of Extreme.

If you like your music hard, fast and loud, then Artpark was the place to be on Tuesday. Megadeth unleashed an assault that the beautiful outdoor stage of Artpark had never seen before. Playing one of just a handful North American dates this summer, they opened with one of their most well known songs with “Hangar 18″ as they came out blistering as they tore on to the stage.
