ASTORIA — Soak up music and refreshments and share the excitement about the future of the Astoria Library at 10th Street Stage, a four-part outdoor concert series situated on the steps of the Astoria Library, 450 10th St.
The series begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, with performances by musicians Laura Lewis and Christopher Reyne.
During the kick-off event, architectural plans for the library’s renovation will be on display, and information about the building project will be available. All ages are welcome. Admission is free.
Raised under the fog banks of the San Francisco Bay on a heavy dose of country, folk and blues from old Clement Street, Lewis is building her foundations in the vibrant West Coast music scene. Her performances have captivated and engaged audiences from festival crowds, bar stools and the windows of coffee shops. Lewis is currently writing and recording her first solo project.
Reyne is an Astoria-based artist. His debut album, “A Stranger at the Wheel,” is a collection of lush, layered soundscapes with lyrics that, as Mod City puts it, “feel like honest journal entries put to music.” The Deli writes, “Catchy pop-esque hooks and complex musical textures pair with Reyne’s melodic voice to make it clear that this performer is dedicated to entertaining his listeners.” Reyne is working on a new album slated for release in the fall.
The series will continue with a performance by Lucy Barna at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 18.
10th Street Stage is a program of the Astoria Library, sponsored by the Liberty Theatre, the Astoria Oregon Public Library Foundation and the Astor Library Friends Association.
