On Thursday, July 28, Expo ’76 will perform at Brummel Park as from 7:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. as part of the City of Evanston’s Starlight Concert Series. Brummel Park is located at Brummel St. and Elmwood Ave.
Come early and come hungry to experience the latest dining trend: Food Trucks! Starting at 5:30 p.m., Evanston’s first and only food truck, Hummingbird Kitchen, and Chicago-based Sweet Ride Chi, Taquero Fusion and TamaleSpaceship will serve up a host of delicious foods! Cash only.
Expo ’76 is made up of four lifers who don’t need to be in another band, but still can’t quite help themselves. Their weakness is your gain, and on any given night you’ll hear them gleefully careening from ‘70s AM radio ear candy into walloping road house beer guzzling dance tunes; they’ll chime their way through a New Wave nugget with the same exuberance that they slap around a swinging, jazzy blues number or a folk revival sing-along. Irrepressible, unstoppable, 100% unironic, and actually quite unbelievable at times, Expo’76 won’t take your requests, because they’re already playing them. But you can still shout them out.
