Summer Concerts Nirvana

Every summer, Omaha hosts a free concert in Memorial Park.  I've attended the ones in 2008 and 2009 and had a good time.  The concerts are around the fourth of July which often means hot, muggy, and buggy, but this only lasts until the sun drops low.

This year the concert is scheduled for the 2nd of July.  Last week they announced who was coming this year: Kansas, Styx, and Foreigner.  All I have to say is that Kansas got me through the last few years of high school and my freshman year of college and Styx and Foreigner both assisted.  I nearly wore out the Kansas cassette I recorded of my LPs (records for you young'uns). I wouldn't miss it for the world and I think I may even be able to get the Wife to join me this year.  She wasn't too keen on the heat, humidity, and mosquitoes.  I don't blame her as the mosquitoes seem to like her more than they like me.  This year the selection of bands might do the trick.


  1. Yay! I hope you have a lot of fun! Just cover the Wife in netting to keep out the bugs. :D

  2. Rec-ord? I think I heard of that word once...

    (No, I'm not making that joke just to try to make myself seem younger than I am. I would NEVER do a thing like that.


  3. Miss McC: I hope so too. Sometimes I would like to throw a net over the Wife ;-)

    GH: Yeah, I still refer to shows we recorded on the DVR as 'being on Tape'.
