PEN&INKee^POSSIBILITIES:Summer's finale

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

It was the final show of the season, but it felt like the closure of something else, too.

The singer’s raspy, bluesy voice weaved through the night air while the crowd mingled in luau shirts and flower leis.

There were food vendors and an artist painted animals’ faces on children. Young people ran around as cats and butterflies.

Julie Stewart and the Motor Kings completed the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series – which began in May – but during the concert it was felt as though the band and the crowd were bidding farewell to the summer season.

When the concert series begins, it feels like the series is the official start of the summer season and carefree days, when people do not have to worry about work or school the next day or completing household chores before it gets too dark. Instead, their time is flexible and therefore they are free to spend the whole night listening to live music. Even if people are not at the concert’s exact location, whether it is on Central Avenue, at Overlook Park, or a number of other venues, the music seeps everywhere; they can hear the guitars, the lyrics of a song while walking to the gym, or maybe from their home.
