Tonight’s Concert Picks: The Lawsuits and Ground Up at Rittenhouse Square and Jonatha Brooke at Haddon Lake Park

Tonight is all about listening to music in the great outdoors. Our first pick for this evening is a free show in Rittenhouse Square featuring Philly country rock band The Lawsuits and local hip-hop group Ground Up. The show is part of the 22nd annual Concerts in the Park series that runs from 7 to 9 p.m. The Lawsuits will be playing all night, kicking the show off with their rollicking country-infused rock sound and then providing back up for Ground Up’s headlining set. Bring a blanket and a picnic dinner and hang out with some friends in the park listening to some good local music. Ground Up recently stopped by out studio at World Cafe Live to record a Key Studio Session. Listen to the Key Session here.

Folk singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke is also playing a free outdoor show tonight. The concert takes place at Haddon Lake Park in Haddon Heights, New Jersey and kicks off at 7:30PM with a performance by Philly singer-songwriter Ryan Tennis. Listen to Ryan Tennis’ album Goodbye to the Ground in the player below.
