The Linda Announces new “Summer on Central” Concert Series

The Linda: WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio is bringing live entertainment outside with the inaugural  “Summer on Central” music series, taking place Saturdays in August in The Linda’s parking lot at 339  Central Avenue. The region’s premier local artists will perform, showcasing their dynamic and dance-worthy music in a series that celebrates the multi-cultural community found in the heart of New York’s capital. Each week, multiple bands will take to the stage for this family-friendly event, including food, artist, and non-profit organization vendors. All shows are free and open to the public. Lawn chairs are encouraged; pets are not permitted.  


The series culminates with a show featuring the top four finishers from this year’s Nippertown March Music Madness. This year’s contest – and this summer’s show – truly demonstrates the incredible variety of musical talent we have in the area. From the beautiful singer-songwriting talent of Girl Blue, to the vintage vibes of ShortWave RadioBand; from the sometimes-almost-hypnotic sound of mainstays Pony in the Pancake to the alternative-but-still-classic tunes of upstarts Side-B. There is truly something for everyone.

The series is presented by The Linda: WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio and WAMC Northeast Public  Radio, in partnership with, WEXT, WEQX, the Central Avenue Business Improvement  District, and Empire Audio Recording & Sound LLC.
