GO LOCAL: Rock on the river tonight with the Batesville Levitt Amp Concert Series


Riverside Park is scheduled to rock tonight with the second Batesville Levitt Amp Concert Series concert.

The rock band, Saving Escape (pictured above), will headline the evening with a sound described as “…a mix of bluesy riffs, thunderous bass and drums, and penetrating vocals.” Click here for more information on the band, and scroll down to watch a performance by Saving Escape.

RedLine, a Main Street Batesville favorite, will open the show.

Hair feathering, barbecue, and entertainment for the family will be part of the fun as Main Street Batesville merchants, food vendors, and Big Poppa Bubble in the Citizens Bank Kids Zone will be on hand.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m. when the park will open to the public.
