(The VIP Deck for Friday night of Whimmydiddle, June 22 is sold out.)
An after party will follow the concert each evening at North Second Tap & Bottle Shop at 11:30 p.m. (on a first-come, first-served basis.) On Friday, The Wooks will play at the After Party. Jim Burns Band will play the After Party on Saturday night. Badin’s Festival will also be going on at Marcum Park both days.
