Frugal activity of the week

Last night I attended the annual free concert for Omaha's "Young and Young at heart" in Memorial Park. The lineup included local Saddle Creek Records band The Good Life, an Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina, and Canadian indie-pop outfit Feist. This show is one reason that makes Omaha cool and unique. Mayor Mike Fahey is interested in creative ways of drawing not only people from surrounding areas to visit but keeping the locals to stay in Omaha instead of moving to larger cities. I had a great time at the show, and the weather was perfect and not exactly normal for mid-July. The concert was a great opportunity to pack a picnic meal and have a nice evening with friends or family.

I found several pictures on Flickr from the concert:
