Adams Avenue Unplugged

Adams Avenue Unplugged, a free musical walkabout, takes place April 28, 2018 along a two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the West through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington to the East. The event will feature live musical performances staged inside restaurants, bars, coffee houses and galleries lining the neighborhood. Being able to pair the Avenue’s unique dining and drinking establishments, each with their own special ambiances and selections, with free musical performances, makes Adams Avenue the place to be on the last weekend of April. The AABA hopes to treat musical aficionados and foodies to the rich neighborhood culture.
Some artists will be playing multiple sets allowing attendees more opportunity to catch their favorite performers.
Adams Avenue Unplugged is free and open to the general public.

Parking is limited to residential neighborhood streets and can get quite congested. MTS bus routes 2 & 11 will service the neighborhoods. There is free trolley that will run from noon to 10 pm along Adams Avenue. Wear comfortable walking shoes and plan on getting your exercise by exploring all the avenue has to offer.
