“Dead Soldiers” will bring American roots rock to the 2nd Street Stage summer concert series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 on 2nd Street in downtown Park Rapids. Head downtown for Water Wars on Main starting at 5:30 and stay for the concert.

“Dead Soldiers” from Memphis, Tenn., draws deeply from influences ranging from rock, soul, outlaw country and bluegrass to blues to carve out their own dark perspective on what it means to live and die in the American South. Songs about anxiety, poverty, politics, history and death are lifted by 3- and 4-part vocal harmonies and paired with detailed instrumentation.

Celebrate summer Thursday evenings with free music, a beer garden and family activities on 2nd Street in downtown Park Rapids. Bring your own chairs.
