This summer, you could be one of these people in Mears Park, if you so choose.

This summer, you could be one of these people in Mears Park, if you so choose.

Alliteration is out for 2019 and assonance is in: Where once there was “Music in Mears” now we have “Lowertown Sounds.”

But though the name of the concert series has changed, the upshot is still the same: On a dozen Thursdays this summer from 6 to 9:30 p.m., beginning on June 6, Mears Park in Lowertown St. Paul will feature free live local music.

Often, people listening to music also like to drink things. For this reason, Minnesota craft beers, along with local ciders and wine, will be available. There will also be plenty of food trucks for those of you who eat.

Free local music and not-free but good local food and drink. What more do you need to know? How about the full music lineup? It's right here:
