Orton Park Festival at Orton Park (August 25 through 28)
August 25 @ 5:30 pm - August 28 @ 7:00 pmFree
Orton Park Fest reliably brings some rock ‘n’ roll kick to the East Side summer festival season. This time around, that aspect of Orton includes a chance to see Disq (Friday, 7 p.m.) as the band ramps up toward the October release of its latest album, Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet. Right now Disq’s next Madison show on the books is in December, so take advantage. But also come back for the multi-faceted pop charms of The Periodicals (Saturday, 5 p.m.), the bittersweet jangle of Proud Parents (Sunday, 1:30 p.m.), and plenty more sounds from Madison and beyond. —Scott Gordon
