hipstonesCalling all blankets, picnic baskets, and candles! The Riverside Clay Tennis Association is once again hosting its series of sunset concerts on the tennis lawn overlooking the Hudson River at 97th Street.

This week’s performer: The HipstonesBrooklyn based band The Hipstones have fronted various seven to nine piece lineups. Mark and Anthea currently take to the the stage as a “soul duo.” The duo’s beloved harmonies, soulful roots and sophisticatedly accessible song craft are now enriched by electronic textures, deconstructed and futuristic hip-hop beats and captivating but challenging modern jazz cosmopolitan flourishes.

The Series celebrates our fabulous park and represents the rich cultural diversity of the Upper West Side. Each concert begins at 7 p.m. and continues through shades of orange, red and purple, ending around 9 p.m. Bring your picnic basket and blanket and join us. Stick around afterward and watch the fireflies rise up out of the lawn and the stars speckle the sky. In the event of inclement weather, call the hotline, 212-978-0277, to see whether a concert has been postponed.
