Ahhh, it's finally summer! After the winter us Pittsburghers' had, we deserve to be outside as much as possible! That's where Shadyside's Jam on Walnut comes into play. This past Saturday was the first Jam on Walnut, out of three, that will be held throughout the summer. Walnut Street is shut down for the ultimate urban block party. This great event is brought to you by Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Verizon Wireless, with proceeds going towards the charity.

This was my first Jam on Walnut, and after the event, I couldn't figure out why I hadn't attended one in the past. My friends and I had a great time! They had the stage set up in between Doc's Place and Shady Grove, right in the heart of Walnut Street in Shadyside.  Donora started out the evening, playing a great set to get everyone in the party mood. That was the first time I got to see them, and they delivered above expectations. I'm excited to check them out around the city more often! In between Donora and Bon Journey, the crowd kept growing and growing. By 9:30pm when Bon Journey started, there was not an empty space on the street. Bon Journey started with 'Don't Stop Believin', which was surprising but very well received. It electrified the crowd and it didn't stop until they played their last song! Everyone was dancing and singing in the street, which made it a great endless summer night (queue in Richard Marx and turn it up please!) And, if you got tired from standing, our friends at Massage Envy were on hand giving free massages which was a perfect concert break!

If you missed this first Jam on Walnut, no worries, because there will be two more you can get to. The next one is on Saturday, July 24th and then again on Saturday, August 21st. Show runs from 7pm-11pm. Happy Summer everyone!!
