White Striped Rock to play Musical Fridays

White Striped Rock will perform in downtown Dixon on Friday, July 18 as part of Dixon Main Street’s 13 Fridays Lunch-time Concert Series. The concert will be held at the Town Square Center on First Street, begins at 12 p.m. and is free and open to all.

“The concert series gets a taste of acoustic Rock and Roll this week with White Striped Rock,” Executive Director Josh Albrecht said. “We have been thrilled with the turnout so far this year for our concerts and we expect them to continue growing until the end of summer.”

This Friday also will feature Sidewalk Sales from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and a Cruise Night from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Wermer’s Parking Lot of the corner of First Street and Peoria Avenue.

This year, 13 total concerts are planned for the series, with the final act on Friday, August 29. Main Street Board members Joni Ehnen and Mitch Tucker were instrumental in planning for this year’s concert series.
