On Thursday, June 24, the first Belfast Summer Nights concert of the season will be held. Two new bands will be performing, so music fans will want to be on the downtown corner of Main and High streets between 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Opening the evening will be Oranges and Apples, featuring Kristian Winslow, Skyler Olsen, Ethan Laurel and Randy Nichols. The main band is local favorite Steel Rail Express, featuring Tim Woitowitz, drummer; Joel Watson, guitar phenom; Paul Vaschon, bassist; and Mike Ponder, guitarist.

The outdoor concert is free, although donations to support the series are welcome. Lawn chairs and dancing shoes are recommended. For more information, call 322-7123.
