The summer concert season is upon us this week, and Carmel is fortunate to have two series. The city’s Summer Family Concert Series at the Gazebo lifts the curtain on its 20th season with a June 5, 7:30 p.m. performance by the Endless Summer Band. That show and those that follow run 75 minutes and are no-admission events. With the exception of July 3, the first day of CarmelFest, the Gazebo shows will run Wednesdays through Aug. 7. It is a great evening on the lawn, to which you are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic dinner. If there is rain (we really frown on that), concerts will be held in the Carmel Fire Dept. Station 41 just to the north. For more information, please visit www.CarmelGazeboConcerts.org website. The Carmel Fountain Square Committee, a non-profit volunteer organization, presents the shows. Meanwhile, to the north at Clay Terrace, the free Thursday Night Summer Concert series kicks off on June 6, when Barometer Soup plays a two hour show on the Grassy Knoll at 7 p.m. The series runs through July 25, with the exception of July 4. Lawn chairs, coolers and munchies welcomed! For more information, please visit www.clayterrace.com.

Your edition of Current will be different next week. We moved to a different print vendor in April, and among the changes we presented were a more economical use of newsprint (and, therefore, trees) and a stapling of the paper’s spine. For a variety of reasons – all with you at the center – we are making another move. The only change you’ll notice is the absence of the staples. We’re confident in the move we made in April, but we found a way to improve on that, and so that’s what we’re going to do. We appreciate your patience and hope you’ll enjoy the paper.
