Endless Summer Kicks Off “Live on the Lawn” Summer Concert Series ~ July 26th

The Malden Public Library’s “Live on the Lawn” Summer Concert Series kicks off on Wednesday, July 26, at 7:00 pm featuring the band Endless Summer.

Endless Summer has opened up a show featuring the legendary Beach Boys at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and hosted an open-air concert at the Rose Kennedy Park to celebrate Brain Wilson’s birthday. The group has also performed at great summer venues including the Regatta Place, Museum of Science Pavillion, Thompson Island, Fenway Park, Fan Pier, TD Banknorth Garden, Odyssey Cruises, Vineyard Vines Boston and the Seaport Hotel.

The Summer Series continues on Aug. 2: Slow Boat Home; August 16: Outdoor Movie Night; and August 23: One and All Band.
