Argonaut & Wasp will play a free concert Levitt AMP Utica Music Series
Indie/alternative quartet Argonaut & Wasp continue their free, family-friendly outdoor concerts on July 18 as the Levitt AMP Utica Music Series returns to downtown Utica. The Brooklyn-based band formed out of a love of house/dance music while living in Burlington, Vermont with a thriving jamming atmosphere. They moved to Brooklyn in 2015, inspired by the city and its varied and vibrant scenes.
Obsessed with 70s fashion, 80s synths and 90s culture, Argonaut & Wasp is an original amalgamation of indie, alternative, edge, electro dance and funk beats whose music has been described as the soundtrack New York perfect.
Their new album “Starlight 99” was written mainly during confinement. It’s about looking up and pushing yourself, and finding the opportunity to have a broader perspective to serve as a guide to the future.
The concert is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with the first part of The Rollin’ Rust. Free entry. The public is encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs to concerts. The series will also offer artistic activities for young viewers and food trucks will be on site.
The concert takes place at Kopernik Park, located at 317 Genesee St. in Utica, at the corner of Eagle Street and Park Avenue near DeSales.
