Rock The Nest: Milonga

If you haven’t wandered through Kendall Yards lately, you might not know the Powers That Be have been sprucing up “The Nest,” the mini amphitheater located just off the Centennial Trail and just west of Molé (formerly Central Food). While there’s been live music during the Wednesday farmers market, the newly configured (and shaded!) stage means The Nest is ready for its closeup as a summertime music venue. Enter this summer’s “Rock The Nest” Thursday night concert series, kicking off July 7 with Spokane’s favorite Latin-rock band, Milonga. That shade might come in handy as the band bounds from flamenco to Afro-Cuban rhythms, because there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to need to stand up and move your body. Later in the summer, you can catch the likes of Soul Proprietors (July 21), T.S. The Solution (Aug. 4), Blue Canoe and Starlite Motel (together Aug. 18) among others.
