Thriftones Perform at River Rhythms Tonight
 Presenting Sponsor: 

The Thriftones have given traditional retro rock music a fresh twist with their folk rock sound. While they are best described as folk rock, the band draws influence from a wide variety of musical genres. This Milwaukee native band can be found playing shows all across the city at local bars, outdoor festivals, and art galleries. 

This free, weekly concert series, presented by Miller Lite, takes place in Pere Marquette Park every Wednesday through 
August 30th from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.

Miller products, a Ciroc cocktail, wine and soda will be available at the Westown Beverage tent with all proceeds benefiting the free event. Patrons will also have a variety of food options available, so it is advised to come hungry!

Next week Celtica Pipes Rock will be playing at River Rhythms. Find the full 2017 River Rhythms lineup  here.
