Tonight… yes, tonight. The big event that we’ve been talking a lot about this past month or so – tonight as part of the Levitt AMP Springfield Concert Series, The Legendary Skatalites from Jamaica, est. 1964 will be performing, *for free*, downtown Springfield on the Y-Block. How amazing is that?
The show will be going on from 6:00 to 8:30 pm on the block which is located between 4th and 5th streets, in between Capitol Avenue and the governor’s mansion. Bring a lawn chair if you want. There is an opening act – “TaQsem” from here in town. The Skatalites are supposed to be taking the stage from 7:00 to 8:30 *if* everything goes according to schedule. It doesn’t look like we have any on the forecast, but in the case of rain, the concert will be moved to Central Baptist Church on 4th street right next to the block.
