WTMD's 1st Thursday Concert in the Park is tonight

goldspotWhat a day for an outdoor show -- a free outdoor show, at that.

Dust off those folding chairs and blankets, and bring them to Mount Vernon Park tonight for WTMD's First Thursday Concert in the Park.

It's the first First Thursday of the season, featuring live performances by indie pop group Goldspot (pictured) and Baltimore's reggae hot shots Can't Hang.

According to Can't Hang's website, the band has sold more than 100,000 digital downloads -- a serious accomplishment for an unsigned band. Congrats, guys! ...

The show starts at 5:30 p.m., but if you can, you should get there a little earlier. The primo seats go quick.

If you're having no luck finding street parking, the Sun garage at Monument and Calvert streets is always a good bet, too.

I remember hearing a few months ago that Can't Hang's latest album was (at least briefly) the number one download from iTunes.

Trying to make it.....darn month-end close!!
