    If you couldn’t tell by the recent sunscreen-worthy heat wave, summer has come to Louisville early this year. But the scorching heat isn't all the season has brought. Summertime has set some of this city's best events and specialties into motion. There’s so much to do in the 502 this summer - and with June coming to an end in just a couple of weeks, you're running out of time to squeeze in as much fun as possible before 4th of July weekend.

    So if you’re looking for something fun to do during the week, there’s no place better than Rye’s 2nd Back Porch Session of the season.

    On the third Thursday of the month from May to September, Rye on Market hosts a free concert in the parking lot of its establishment. Over the years, the Back Porch Sessions concert series has gained significant popularity and has become one of NuLu’s most anticipated events. This year is the fourth season of the series and is sure to be the best one yet!  

    This month's Back Porch Session will showcase three of Louisville's best artists: Cher Von, Howell Dawdy and Twin Limb. The unusually delightful experimental voice of Cher Von plus the often comical lyrics and catchy beats of Howell Dawdy and Twin Limb’s melodic bliss is sure to cater to all musical interests.

    However, if you’d like to review the artists before you venture out to Rye next Thursday, you can check out Cher Von on Bandcamp, Howell Dawdy on iTunes and Twin Limb on iTunes as well. And also be sure to turn on 91.9FM WFPK, Louisville’s public media radio station. This station, which is also one of the generous sponsors of Rye’s Back Porch Sessions, frequently plays the music of each artist.

    Admission to Rye's Back Porch Sessions is always free to the public and Do502 encourages you to RSVP to the event online here. The music begins at 7 p.m. and tacos will be served at the event starting at 5 p.m. for 4 dollar each along with several 5 dollar drink specials.

    **Please note that Rye's Back Porch Session for June was originally scheduled for Thursday, June 18 but has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 25 due to inclement weather.
