WEVL have let me know about this year's Blues On The Bluff:

Bring chairs and blankets this Saturday night for a guaranteed good time on the bluffs of the Mississippi River in a beautiful park-like setting.

Giant shady oaks, a cool breeze from the river, outdoor sculpture garden, fantastic music, and absolutely the best view of the Mississippi in the entire mid-south!
