If you work or live in Midtown Sacramento and can get away for an hour or two on Thursday afternoons, you really owe it to yourself to head down to Fremont Park (16th and Q Streets) for the Hot Lunch Concert Series, presented by Hot Italian and local promoter Jerry Perry. Every Thursday starting at 11:30 a.m., from now through Aug. 28, awesome local bands will be performing for free. The first two Hot Lunch shows are already in the books (Kepi Ghoulie played June 5 and Dog Party on June 12) but there are still plenty to look forward to: James Cavern on June 19, Matt Sertich (of the Generals) on July 10, Hans! and the Hot Mess on August 7, just to name a few! To see the whole lineup, head to Facebook.com/hotlunchconcertseries. Pro tip: Don’t forget to call Hot Italian ahead of time at (916) 444-3000 to place an order for a panini or insalata plus a drink to go for only $10!
