    I can check the summer schedule, but I believe that Jort Sandwich and the Cyclo-destrian Bus Rider Orchestra are available for a wholesome, family-friendly concert. 

    Gather up the kids, get on your Limebikes and head to Hiawatha for an evening of music, laughter, and sober reminders about the importance of traffic safety and modern transportation planning.

    P.S. No parking available for this concert.

      You might not be local after all, Jort, or else you would know that Hiawatha has just a handful of offstreet parking spaces anyway. We’ve covered the concerts (and sponsored them) from the start and many if not most attendees walk/wheel up to the lawn from the family-laden Admiral neighborhoods that fan out in all directions – TR

    Is the otherwise empty West Seattle High School parking lot not open for public use during large-scale Hiawatha events during the school’s 3-month summer break? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
