Posted By on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 11:08 AM


The lineup for this year's Alive After 5 outdoor concert series on The Grove was just announced, and it ain't too shabby.

The series will open Wednesday, June 5 with Portland, Ore., blues singer Curtis Salgado, whose style and image are reputed to have been John Belushi's inspiration for characters in The Blues Brothers.

Other standout names include Treefort alumni Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside Wednesday, June 26 and Pickwick Wednesday, July 10, as well as a solo set from Dave Alvin, an original member of The Blasters, Wednesday, July 17.
