Wild Light, Matt Duke to headline WTMD's First Thursday Concert in May

wild light Two bands from the Northeast will perform at WTMD's First Thursday Concert in the Park May 7.

Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter Matt Duke and New Hampshire-based indie rockers Wild Light (pictured) will headline the show, which starts around 5:30 p.m. in Mount Vernon Place.

As always, the show is free. And from the looks of it, this is going to be a solid kick-off to a great season of free live music.

Someone (Sam?) should teach those TMD folks a thing or two about posting an event. Unlike yours, their post (which I saw earlier) does not mention the time of the show or what it costs anywhere. Anyway, sounds great.

Sorry about that! We've been running nutsy-crazy all day! We're also ramping up a new events calander and as well as a dedicated First Thursday page, so the most important details were copied and pasted and obviously, dropped, a few times. No excuse, just an explaination.

We forget that even after five years of bringing music to the city for free that some folks don't know the details.

You-and anyone-can always call WTMD at 410 704 8938 and we'll answer any question.

Hope to see you and I hope you'll make a membership contribution as well---we can't do these shows without community support and investment.


The show is free for anybody to come down and enjoy. As always our show begins at 5:30 on May 7th. The headlining band is Wild Light (singular). Hope to see you there.

Fixed! Thanks, Tyler!
