The Volume Will be Turned to “Fun:” The 2013 Out to Lunch Concert Series is Set

As the calendar flips to a bit more favorable climate, a Downtown Seattle summer favorite is set to return. The 2013 Out to Lunch Summer Concert Series kicks off July 10 in Downtown Seattle and continues through September 20 with a great variety of locations and musical stylings.

Produced by the Metropolitan Improvement District, in cooperation with the Downtown Seattle Association, the popular Out to Lunch Summer Concert Series – now in its 35th year – will showcase exciting local and national acts in free lunchtime concerts (noon – 1:30 p.m.) each Wednesday and Friday across Downtown Seattle.

OTL venues stretch from Pioneer Square to Denny Triangle with 22 concerts in all. Concerts and other Downtown Seattle summer events will be featured on, which will be live on June 3, 2013.
