Warmer weather means it’s time to enjoy some free live music, Fort Worth. Bands on the Bricks is Sundance Square’s very own happy hour concert series. The concerts are free to the public and will be held in the Plaza every Thursday evening in May from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (Note the day of the week has changed since our Bands on the Bricks series last Fall.) You’re welcome to bring a lawn chair or blanket, but leave the coolers and outside food and drink behind. There will be a cash bar in the Plaza during each concert for your convenience. Come early and grab a table at one of the nearby restaurants with a patio to enjoy dinner with your live music, or stick around after the concert to enjoy a leisurely meal at one of the 32 restaurants in Sundance Square. Support the merchants in Sundance Square to show your support of them and of free events like these.

If you missed Amber Leigh White kicking off the Spring series on May 4, be sure you mark your calendars for the rest of the lineup.
