Pipeline Alley concerts moving to evenings

From staff reports

The Pipeline Alley concert series in Oil City will take place in the evening instead of the afternoon starting next week.

Beginning Aug. 14, the weekly Wednesday performances will occur from 7 to 8 p.m., according to the Oil City Arts Council, the organizer of the series.

The concerts will take place in Pipeline Alley, between the National Transit Building and its Annex. The cost is $5 at the door.

Admission fees collected from the concerts will go to support the work of the Arts Council, a non-profit group dedicated to promoting and advancing the fine and performing arts in the community, according to a press release

A new feature at the weekly concert is the addition of a “food vendor of the evening” from Oil City that will sell snacks or dinner, the press release said. The weekly vendor will change each week.

Attendees can also bring food from home or from another restaurant, according to the press release.

“Music lovers can enjoy the great setting along Oil Creek in the early evening light while checking out local music acts,” a spokesman said.

The Wyllis Street Band, a local blues and rock band, will perform Aug. 14.

In case of rain, the concerts are held in The Great Room of the National Transit Building.
