Art browsers into overnight guests
July 28, 2009
The price may be right to see a popular American rock band, a Hawaiian blues singer and a slew of after parties and live music this weekend on Main Street.
As part of the "Festival after Dark" patrons of the Park City Kimball Arts Festival will receive discounts on entertainment in bars and clubs on Main Street Friday and Saturday.
Intended to keep visitors on Main Street after booths close in the evening Friday and Saturday nights, festivities promise plenty of drinking, dancing and carousing.
Harry O’s nightclub opens its doors at 8 p.m. Friday for a concert with Hoobastank, the band best known for its 2004 radio hit "The Reason." The venue plays host to folk and blues rocker Kalai Saturday night. Arts fest wristbands will be the trendy accessory for both shows. They mean $5 off.
DJ D-Nice takes the stage at 10:30 p.m. Saturday. A veteran of the music scene, D-Nice has worked with Puff Daddy, Kid Rock and Mary J. Blige, according to press material.
Harry O’s is the official nightlife sponsor of the arts festival, but it isn’t the only venue in town that is trying to turn art browsers into overnight guests.
