Civic Center Eats

Kick lunchtime boredom to the curb at Civic Center Eats, an outdoor gathering of the city's best food trucks. Listen to live tunes from performers like Jeff King and Owen Kortz and enjoy delicious eats and sips from your favorite mobile food vendors, including Manna from Heaven, Jessie's Smokin' Nola, and Quiero Arepas. Shaded tables and an on-site ATM make lunching al fresco cool and breezy. A portion of the proceeds benefits Civic Center Conservancy, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring Civic Center Park. Tue, Thu 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

With wunderkind Chris Thile at the helm, the Punch Brothers meld genres, blending traditional string instrumentation with modern classical music. The quintet's 2015 release, The Phosphorescent Blues, was produced by the legendary “T Bone” Burnett and combines intricate harmonies, soaring melodies, and spot-on executions to create a novel sound. Tue 8 p.m.
