Get excited.

Fictionist (a Provo band achieving national acclaim and in the running to be on the cover of the Rolling Stone) will be joined by local favorites, Paul Jacobsen and The Madison Arm to kick off this year's Rooftop Concert Series.

For those who may not know - the Rooftop Concert Series takes place on the roof of the Provo Town Square parking terrace. How cool is that??

The kick-off concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2011. Admission to the concert is free.

The 2011 Rooftop Concert Series lineup is composed of some of Utah’s up-and-coming musicians as well as those who have already achieved international success including Provo’s own Neon Trees and Warner Brothers signed recording artists, Meaghan Smith. This year’s lineup includes:

May 6 - Fictionist with Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm
June 3 - Meaghan Smith with Mindy Gledhill
July 1 - The Abbey Road Show with Sarah Sample
August 5 – Joshua James with Ryan Innes
September 2 - The Neon Trees
October 7 - The Lower Lights

I'll be asking a certain fella to take me to a few of these. Supporting local talent? Proving the coolness of Provo? You bet!

And - did you catch the admission cost, people? Please.
