Anythink Backyard Concert Series streams live on July 10
WHAT: Anythink’s annual Backyard Concert Series returns for its second concert of the season on July 10 with Leon and the Revival. This Denver-based soul and R&B band returns to the Backyard Concert Series for the second time for a performance that will be hosted exclusively online. Those who tune in live on Facebook and YouTube will have opportunities to interact with the band, the library and with each other – from the comfort of home. Families are encouraged to gather in their living rooms and backyards with blankets, lawn chairs, bubbles and all of the other provisions that make for a fun concert experience. Living room setups can be shared online using the #BCS2020 hashtag for an opportunity to be featured live during the show. The Backyard Concert Series is a fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation, and funds raise will help Anythink to provide special projects for the community. The performance is free and appropriate for all ages. Supporters are encouraged to donate online or text BACKYARD to 50155 to help the Anythink Foundation reach its $20,000 fundraising goal.
WHEN: Friday, July 10, 6:30-8 pm
