Bringing Back Live Concerts — Safely

Summer just hasn’t been the same without outdoor concerts. A new event series is aiming to fill that void—at least somewhat. “Revive the Live,” which launched last week, is “designed to provide an opportunity to celebrate live music from a safe distance, bring the Central Iowa music-loving community together again and support our local musicians.”

The concept is simple: Every concert is held at Water Works Park, and patrons can watch from inside or close to their cars. Parking spaces are socially distanced, so you can sit outside with family and soak in the tunes. All start times are 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 per car. Here’s the schedule for the next few weeks.

  • July 24: The Pork Tornadoes (additional late show at 9 p.m.)
  • July 25: Brazilian 2Wins
  • Aug. 1: Jason Brown
  • Aug. 7: Damon Dotson
  • Aug. 8: Winterland — Grateful Dead Tribute Band
