Free Concerts in the West End

Free and Live! Are there any better words to hear in the same sentence as concert? West End Association's merchant members have joined together to support the return of free concerts to Dallas' West End. Concerts will take place every Friday night September through October with music ranging from Indie and Classic Rock to Country and Big Band Party. Attendance is expected to top 500 each week.

Free Concerts in the West End
Dallas, TX, September 01, 2009 --( Everyone is looking for economical entertainment and when walking through any mall right now, 80’s retro is the fashion. What better way to answer the call for both than reinventing the free concerts and street entertainment that brought the West End to life in the late 80’s. Every Friday night September 4, 2009 through October 30, 2009, the West End comes to life with music ranging from classic rock to country to jazz and big band. In addition to the Free concerts, street entertainers (steel drum artists, singers, magicians, balloon artists, unicyclists and many more) perform one-on-one for guests throughout the West End.
LIVE! in the West End is sponsored by the merchant members of the West End Association. The restaurants, bars and retailers of the West End have come together to revitalize the area as an entertainment destination not only for tourists, but for Dallas area residents too. Participating merchant members of the West End Association are offering special Locals VIP cards to area residents giving our locals special discounts anytime they visit the West End.
