Now that we’ve all shared a collective sigh of relief that this summer will not be devoid of the Fort Reno concert series, following an agreement between the show organizers and the National Park Service, we can focus on what really matters: the music.

This year’s concerts run Mondays and Thursdays from the 7th through the 31st, beginning with the Captivators, a ska band, and art rockers Malatese from Harrisburg, Virginia. Also on the slate are punk ascendants Priests, Title Tracks, and Protect-U. Once again, there are no Fugazi reunions planned.

As always, the shows run from 7 to 9:30 PM, weather permitting. Bring snacks, friends, dogs, and babies. Leave the glass bottles and alcohol at home; you can always go to Guapo’s after the show.
