The annual outdoor Summer Concert Series at Western Carolina University continues Thursday, June 20, with the Big Nasty Jazz Band. From Asheville, the Big Nasty Jazz Band is a unique jazz experience that brings back the music of the ’20s and ’30s and encourages listeners to get up and dance. WCU hosts the Summer Concert Series, presented by the A.K. Hinds University Center, on Central Plaza every Thursday in June and July (excluding July 4). The series features an eclectic variety of genres and is free to the public. Shows begin at 7 p.m. and last 60-90 minutes. Audience members are welcome to bring blankets, chairs and snacks. The rain location is inside the University Center. Next up is the Honeycutters, an old-school country experience, June 27.
