Algonquin summer concert series nears

The Algonquin summer concert series will kick off Thursday, June 16, with the Pino Farina Band.

The group will showcase “a blend of the sincerity of U2 meets the outrageousness of Foo Fighters,” the village said in the event listing.

The concert schedule is:

  • Pino Farina Band on June 16;

  • Top 40 country band Hillbilly Rockstarz on June 30;
  • Final Say, performing the music of the ’60s through today’s rock and pop, on July 7;
