Sunday Music (and Picnic Potluck) at Goodale Park

There has been a growing event in Goodale Park. The gazebo stage in the park has been the noontime site for free concerts from some of Columbus’ best bands. Today, it was The Spikedrivers which was a double bonus for me since I am a huge Megan Palmer fan (she is a member and played with her own band two weeks ago). The music is part of the 2009 Goodale Park Sunday Music Series. Funding was cut earlier in the year but the event was saved with some pluck by a local organizer and others. You can get additional background on what happened here – Columbus Underground interview with Alex Kelley about the saved Summer Music Series.

Citizens sighted at the event included Pierogi King Roland Kopecky, the entire Taco Trucks Columbus Team, a Fighting Librarian and the Short North Interpretative Dance Troupe

The number of people attending and appreciating the event has grown with each performance. Today, it resembled a mini Comfest with a large variety of folks spread out in the park to enjoy the music. A subset of this gathering is a growing cadre of Columbus Underground usual suspects – bringing homecooked food, farmer’s market finds and in a few cases some Kanes Chicken Fingers, Pattycake Cookies or Hills Market munchies to share in a communal buffet on blankets.

There are two more performances remaining so show up, enjoy the music and if you care to, bring some food to share with others. There is a nice sense of community to this event and all are welcome to add to the local karma.
