Just think, if you went to Blues Under the Bridge last year then you were one of the last people to see the legendary Koko Taylor (who died on June 3 of this year) live! We’re not trying to scare you into coming to Blues Under the Bridge, but just want to remind you that the caliber of musicians, the location and the opportunity are unique. On top of all that, if you buy your tickets today, KRCC members will pay only HALF of what you’ll pay at the door while the general public will save $20 on a 2-day pass. No reason not to buy your tickets now if you plan to go because it’s UNDER THE BRIDGE! Rain or shine, folks, you’re gonna have a great time. There’s also a full bar this year and Bristol Beer, as always, and tons of food vendors (fyi: you have to scroll down to see them).

Look, we know how much you love the Blue Plate Special at noon every weekday on KRCC. We also know how much you love food and beverages. What are you waiting for? Come down to KRCC between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for your last chance to get the 1/2 price (members)/2/3 price (general public) weekend passes.

If you need more convincing, here’s a video (produced by Don Goede) of Koko Taylor performing at last year’s Blues Under the Bridge and a video of this year’s Saturday night headliner Bettye LaVette singing her “Love Reign O’er Me” tribute to the Who at Kennedy Center in 2008.
