92.5 The River celebrates the 40th anniversary of Earth Day with a FREE lunch time concert featuring They Might Be Giants and Citizen Cope!
Boston, MA March 22nd, 2009 –One month from today, on April 22nd, 92.5 The River, Boston’s independent and solar-powered radio station is gearing up for a free lunch time concert in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The concert begins at 12 noon and concludes at 3pm. It will take place on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, a new model of dynamic outdoor space that brings Bostonians together to enjoy everything that’s great about the city. The Greenway will be transformed into a fun outdoor atmosphere that includes free music, a kids’ zone and other activities.
This celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day will feature live performances from Citizen Cope and They Might be Giants. "We’re so psyched to welcome They Might Be Giants to The River’s Earth Day Concert. They’re true indie trailblazers that so many Bostonians came of age to. Add Citizen Cope, and it’s going to be quite a fun day for two prolific bands and their many rabid followers!" said Catie Wilber, 92.5 The River’s Program and Music Director.
The concert is conveniently located in the Greenway’s Wharf District Parks near the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall, and the Financial District, and is easily accessible by the MBTA Blue Line, commuter boats at Rowes Wharf or by train at South Station.
"We are thrilled to host this free family-friendly, earth-friendly event with our partners at 92.5 The River," said Nancy Brennan, Executive Director, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. "The Greenway is fast becoming a special place in the city – a place where friends, co-workers, and families gather to enjoy the sunshine and appreciate Boston’s beautiful downtown area. Thanks to The River, visitors to the Greenway on April 22nd will have a fantastic opportunity to shake off the doldrums of winter, celebrate Earth Day, and enjoy some terrific music."
The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, a private, non-profit organization, operates, maintains, preserves and manages the parks on behalf of the general public.
