Thursday #MPLS is Live On The Drive

#MPLS1 (1)The annual Northside summer concert series Live on the Drive continues with local talent, #MPLS for a family-friendly jam on Thursday, July 14th, from 6 to 8pm. The second of three concerts held outdoors this summer on the scenic Victory Memorial Drive at 34th Avenue North in Minneapolis, one of the most beautiful concert settings in the city.

#MPLS (M-P-L-S) combines contemporary soul, R&B, and hip hop infused with the legendary sound that put the city, Minneapolis on the map; funk! This band is comprised of some of the most elite musicians whose resumes include playing with the Sound of Blackness, Mint Condition and Prince to name a few.

Come with an appetite and enjoy dinner from food vendors Mama Donato’s Woodfired Pizza, Sandy’s, and treat yourself with gelato from Nona Rosa’s. Stay into the evening for a movie in the park, featuring Back to the Future at dusk right at the Live on the Drive concert site, with a very special movie-themed visit between the concert and movie. Our “green” events feature recycling and composting, diverting 93% of materials out of the waste stream last year. Be sure to invite your neighbors and bring your friends to this family-friendly, all-ages event!

Live on the Drive is presented the Cleveland Neighborhood Association with our founding partner, North Memorial, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Victory Neighborhood Association, KBEM 88 FM, City of Minneapolis, Camden Lions, Insight News, KFAI Radio, 89.9 KMOJ, Healy Creative, North News, Victory Neighborhood Association and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. This activity is funded, in part, by appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund, and its arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.

Live on the Drive brings people together from across the Northside and throughout the greater Twin Cities to hear extraordinary music and to celebrate summer, good health and Northside city living. For more information, call 612-588-1155 or visit
