BBQ in Your Backyard

WMSE’s annual Backyard BBQ event is moving online this year. Celebrate with WMSE in your backyard on Saturday, Aug. 29. Fire up your grills, grab a beverage of your choice, and tune in at 3 p.m. to watch some of the most amazing performances from past WMSE Backyard BBQ events. You’ll find the fun at www.wmse.org/bbq, on the station’s Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channels, and of course, at 91.7FM.

Station Manager Tom Crawford will emcee this day of incredible music, which is sponsored by Colectivo and Lakefront Brewery. The lineup is extraordinary (headliner to opener): Alejandro Escovedo, The Old 97s, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Sonny Knight & the Lakers, Los Straightjackets, Paul Cebar, The Grovelers, Split Lip Rayfield and The Koch-Marshal Trio.

The Backyard BBQ has always been a great free concert we put on for our listeners because they are the best in the world,” said Crawford. “While we can’t do it in person this year, we are still excited to give our listeners an event to remember and the opportunity to catch their favorite performances from past years. Get ready ’cause we plan on seeing you next year in Humboldt Park!”

Don’t forget to post a picture and tag yourself #wmsebbq partying it up your backyard to win a WMSE Backyard BBQ fun pack! We’d like to thank Ticket King for their additional support.
