Sacramento does not lack summertime outdoor concert series. We’ve got Cesar Chavez on Friday nights, Pops in the Park at McKinley, Curtis Park’s Music in the Park and now there’s a new one to add to the list: The Oak Park Concert Series in McClatchy Park presented by Naked Coffee and Oak Park Productions. Starting on June 18 and continuing one Saturday every month through September, McClatchy Park will host, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., some of Sacramento’s finest musical offerings including The Snobs (June 18), ZuhG and Longshot Sound System (both on July 9), Nagual (Aug. 6) and Musical Charis (Sept. 3). It is not possible for a region to have too many concert series of this nature, so the idea of one happening in the often-shunned neighborhood of Oak Park is great news. Our hats are off to the organizers of this series: thanks for striving to make Sacramento (and more specifically, Oak Park) a better place.
