Tonight's 1st Thursday Concert in the Park canceled due to rain

mount vernon placeWTMD's 1st Thursday Concert in the Park, originally scheduled for 5:30 p.m. tonight in Mount Vernon Place, has been canceled due to rain.

"Mother nature hates good music," said Amy Wielunski, membership director for the station.

Philadelphia-based acoustic rockers Good Old War and indie rock group Company of Thieves were scheduled to co-headline tonight's show.

So far this year, there have been no 1st Thursday concerts. The first, scheduled for May 7, was scrubbed due to landscaping concerns.

Hold on guys summer is coming

Company of Thieves will be back in town at Ram's Head Live on Tuesday the 16th, correct?

Nice, Sam. Thank you for actually using my quote. Though I do believe I did give our dear Mother Nature a bit more respect by properly capitalizing her name.

And yes, Company of Thieves is opening for Plain White Tees at RHL on the 16th.
