Truly committed to supporting live music and the local music scene, the Rock Hall just announced its summer schedule of live music and programming.

“Our summer lineup of live music and programming gives fans and families a chance to experience the power of rock & roll at our remarkable lakefront location. We are grateful to have incredible partners like PNC that help us deliver these experiences,” says Greg Harris, CEO & President, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in a press release.

Things will kick into high gear beginning July 1 with a performance by the eclectic local act Oregon Space Trail of Doom/Oregon Space Trail of Jazz.

There will be live music from 8 to 10 p.m. every Thursday and Friday in July and August. The concerts will feature a mix of local and national acts, and highlights include Sweet Apple (July 17), Cloud Nothings (July 23), Bully (July 30), the Ark Band (Aug. 13) and John Paul Keith (Aug. 27).

Lunch by the Lake will feature free acoustic performances by the Rock Hall’s “Resident Rockers” and local artists from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at the beer garden.

And finally, Rock & Yoga also returns to the plaza on Monday nights from 6 to 7 p.m.
