Riverside Concerts reveals 2019-20 indoor lineup

Riverside Concerts announced its upcoming indoor lineup today.

The Riverside Concerts Presents series begins Thursday, September 19 with Gaelic Storm, a genre-bending Irish rock band that has topped the Billboard World Chart an impressive six times. The group is also known for their appearance in the James Cameron classic, Titanic.

That concert, along with three others in the six-show line up, will be held at the Mayo Civic Center’s Presentation Hall. The other two concerts will be held down the hall in the Rochester Civic Theatre’s Black Box.

Here is the full 2019-20 indoor lineup from Riverside Concerts:

September 19: Gaelic Storm (Presentation Hall)

October 4: Duluth-based indie group Low (Presentation Hall)

November 2: Multi-platinum Minneapolis rockers Soul Asylum (Presentation Hall)

November 21: Latin Alternative group LADAMA (Black Box)

January 17: Beatles tribute band The Fab Four (Presentation Hall)

March 7: Tuvan throat singers Alash (Black Box)

Ticket information can be found on the Riverside Concerts website.

Har Mar making a return

Har Mar Superstar is headed down 52 for another Rochester show — this time on the third floor of Castle Community. The songwriter and performer, known for his amusing on-stage persona, will be here on September 13. Med City Beat is proud to be a sponsor of the show. You can learn more about the concert by visiting our friends over at My Town My Music.

Music this weekend

If you can’t wait until September, Rochester does have some live music to offer this weekend. Down by the Riverside, the city’s free outdoor concert series, continues Sunday with Minnesota’s own Cloud Cult. The show begins at 7 p.m. at Mayo Park. Earlier that same day, the Castle is hosting the Steve Kenny Quartet as part of its “Jazz in Les Fields Hall” series.
