Austin Young’s Band rocked the Moxi in Greeley for the Greeley Blues Jam Pre-Party.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
Series concludes with Labor Day afternoon concert
When the last musical notes drift out of the Plaza on Labor Day afternoon, the 2012 Concerts in the Plaza will conclude and will do so counting a very successful 22nd season. The weekly music series, offered free to the community and visitors, runs each year from Memorial Day to Labor Day offering a wide variety of musical entertainment to the community. The series has been called “the best way to spend a Thursday night in St. Augustine,” and it’s easy to understand why when sitting under the majestic oaks of the Plaza de la Constitución enjoying quality musical entertainment surrounded by friends and family.
The two-hour concerts are on Thursdays starting at 7:00pm except for the concluding concert on Labor Day which is set for the afternoon from 1:00pm until 5:00pm. A cancellation necessitated a scheduling change for the Labor Day concert with Jazz Piersonified & Friends stepping in to fill the vacancy . The remaining 2012 schedule features:
August 16 Rob Ellis Peck & Friends – acoustic R&B / classic rock,
August 23 The Mike Hart Band – blues, jazz & rock,
August 30 Lonesome Bert & The Skinny Lizards – original Americana folk,
September 3 Jazz Piersonified & Friends – jazz standards.
On street parking, free after 5:00pm, is available near the Plaza, and parking is available, $10 per entry, at the Historic Downtown Parking Facility at The VIC, a short walk to the Plaza.
Rain? What rain?
Every attempt is made to go on with the show, so even with this season’s rainy summer only one concert was cancelled, although some have started a few minutes late. As is often said: The only way you’ll know if a concert is cancelled is to be there.
Need to know more?
Concerts are free and attendees should bring lounge chairs for seating. Picnic dinners are popular, but alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the Plaza. Complete schedule and maps to the Plaza and The VIC are available at www.plazaconcerts.com.
Concerts in the Plaza is produced by the City of St. Augustine with support from the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council. For visitor information visit www.floridashistoriccoast.com.
