Live from Downtown Champaign, it’s Friday Night

Friday Night Live 2015 is in full swing. The annual event, hosted by 40 North, entered into its fourth year with street side performances by Kurt Bielema, Kittens Incorporated, North of 40, Wildwood, JMT Trio, and The Diva & the Dude. The series will run every Friday night from 6-8 p.m. from May 29th to August 28th, with performances at the intersections of Neil & Church, Neil & Park, and Walnut & Chester. While there was a festive opening night crowd on hand, Mother Nature unfortunately cut the evening short as heavy rain began to fall shortly after 7 p.m.  Despite the premature conclusion, it was still a night of great music from some of the area’s finest acts.
