8 Great Tuesdays All Stars by Alex Bieler

On July 8, an Erie tradition turns 15 years old, so it’s appropriate that the first outing for 8 Great Tuesdays will bring together a team of local favorites to kick off the summer series.

While your typical Tuesday might include laundry or binge-watching the latest hit Netflix series, 8 Great Tuesdays turns the weekday into an event, and this year’s opening night includes local guitar maestro Eric Brewer, multi-talented Erie music veteran Doug Phillips, and several more yet-to-be-named artists, as well as an opening performing by Los Angeles indie-folk act The Evening Guests.

We may be celebrating a special birthday for the summer series, but 8 Great Tuesday is the one providing all of the gifts, with free shows at the Burger King Amphitheater featuring local and national artists and several vendors. It’s all of the fun of a Friday night affair, packed into a wonderful Tuesday night. – Alex Bieler
