Music on Mill Update

I had a great time last night attending the Music on Mill event.  If you live in the Phoenix area this is something you should think about attending.  I've added a couple links for the event if you want to check it out.  They are also on Face Book if you are interested in checking them out.

This is a music event and there were several bands playing.  Bands can range in size of a one man with keyboard and speakers to several people.  The third Thursday is when a number of bands perform.  They are about a block apart on Mill starting at 4th Street.

While this is about music it is also about the local merchants joining in and offering discounts for food.  There is also a scavenger hunt with clues posted on Face Book and Twitter.  Last night's event also had a mechanical bull.

The bands I saw last night were good.  The bands play in a rotation style.  One band will play at a location and then another band will take over after a predetermined time.  Between sets music is played on the sound system.

The crowd is a mixed group.  This being near ASU there is the campus crowd along with young families.  It was a friendly crowd.  People were there to have a nice evening out.  The weather cooperated and it was a pretty nice evening.

Parking in and around Mill Avenue can be a little hectic.  Parking on the street is free after 6 PM.  The Light Rail runs right by 4th Street and Mill so you can come by Rail if you choose.

I know I'll be going back.  I'll recommend this to more people that I know.

The event runs from 6 PM to 9 PM.

Travel smart, travel safe.
