KGSR has announced the anticipated lineup for its 23rd annual live music series, Blues on the Green, taking place throughout the summer at Zilker Park. The summer music kicks off Wednesday, May 29 with hometown favorites Alpha Rev (and opening band Wild Child), and continues with five more performances throughout the season.
Blues on the Green is Austin's largest free concert series, averaging over 7,000 attendees per night. Music lovers are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, dogs and kids to the lawn for an evening of live music alongside food and beverages from local restaurants.

May 29: Alpha Rev with Wild Child
June 12: Wheeler Brothers with The Whiskey Sisters
June 26: Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears
July 10: Bob Schneider with Max Frost
