2019 River Series at Harbor Town Lineup

Head down to the river for some local music this year! The 2019 River Series at Harbor Town is on Sunday afternoons, and there will be three shows this spring. Each of the performances are at the Maria Montessori Harbor Town Amphitheater.

I like the River Series because it’s a way to see national and local bands that normally play late-night and indoors (sometimes in smoky venues) before your bedtime.

The live music begins at 4 p.m., with guest DJs playing music starting at 3 p.m. and in between sets. All of the concerts are a donation of $5 at the door. The series, as always, benefits The Maria Montessori School and there’s usually food and beer for sale.
