Summer means a lot of great things in Los Alamos, but mostly it means the outdoors is finally open – for biking, running, rock climbing, painting, napping and, of course, dancing to live music every Friday night.
For almost 20 years, concert producer Russ Gordon has been bringing some incredible talent to the Hill, from artists like Tim Reynolds, famous for his work with Dave Matthews, to Los Alamos’ own ’50s rockers, the Nomads.
This year’s tableau features two-dozen bands in nearly as many genres, and Gordon is ready to fire up the speakers.
“We’re expanding this year with some sounds that are new for me,” he said, “but I chose them all, and I’m really looking forward to all these shows.”
The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series officially kicks off on Mother’s Day with a band that many might not at first associate with the family spirit of the holiday: the Asylum Street Spankers.
“A lot of their shows are pretty wild,” Gordon said, and their 2006 concert certainly attested to that.
However, the band has won much acclaim for its 2007 children’s album – “Mommy Says No!” – and Gordon said the first two-thirds of the show will concentrate on children’s songs and other family-friendly fare.
