Pritt Entertainment Group, in partnership with Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP), will present weekly pop-up lunchtime concerts. The series is called “Sidewalk Stage,” and shows will take place each Friday, 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., now through September.
Michael McFarland, self-described writer, rocker, biker and geek, gave an upbeat, energetic performance for the first concert last Friday in front Pritt Entertainment Group’s 363 S. Main St. location across the street from the famous Diamond Deli. His show included a few covers, but primarily featured his beautiful rhythmic alt-pop original songs.
While McFarland performed, members of the Pritt Entertainment Group handed out free popsicles to passers-by.
Next week’s show will take place Friday, Aug. 14, on the sidewalk in front of Canal Park Stadium at 300 S. Main St. For more information about Sidewalk Stage, go to http://www.downtownakron.com/enjoy/sidewalk-stage.
