UPDATED Aug. 12: For summer 2022, "Live Arts Arlington," an effort of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, brings live performance to the recently revamped Broadway Plaza on several successive Fridays. It is scheduled to continue almost until Labor Day.
The programming is to continue at 6 p.m. Aug. 19, with Foster Powell, an indie/folk rock singer/songwriter with a mellow and intimate vibe.
The music runs until 8. Audience members are being encouraged to bring their own chairs. All events are free of charge.
A recent news release suggests this perspective: "Hear or see something awesome a short trip from home -- and celebrate the beauty, talent and diversity of Arlington with your neighbors! Bring your chairs and get ready for some great entertainment. Make sure to support our local businesses and make Live Arts Arlington your go-to Friday night summer plan!"
A number of local businesses are participating in supporting the programming. The news release continues by saying "Come hear or see something awesome a short trip from home, and celebrate the beauty, talent and diversity of Arlington with your neighbors."
