To paraphrase noted hefeweizen fan Julie Andrews, the beers are alive with the sound of music.
Red Truck Brewing has announced the lineup for its annual summer concert series, tapping into pop, country and a generous serving of soul.
The Truck Stop Concert Series returns for its third year with three outdoor concerts on the barley-scented grounds of the East Van brewery. Australian synth-pop band Cut/Copy kicks off the concert season June 17, along with opening acts Youngblood and Band of Rascals. On July 15, Alabama-raised and Nashville-based singer Drake White and the Big Fire bring their country-Americana stylings to the beer-swilling masses, with openers the Dungarees, Chris Buck Band, Kristin Bunyan, and Sykamore. While soul and funk legend Lee Fields & The Expressions closes out the series Aug. 12, helped along by Vince Vaccaro, and the Real Ponchos. Each concert will reserve one opening slot for winners of an unsigned local artist submission contest. The events will also feature two performance stages, along with food trucks and Red Truck beer.
General admission tickets are $35 for each show and go on sale at April 21 at 10 a.m. A $75 “Tailgate Pass” gets concert goers into all three shows, while $25 early bird single show tickets are available from 10 a.m. on April 18 until 10 a.m. on April 21.
