Weekly planner: Kyle Megna at Hydro, the circus comes to town


Kyle Megna and the Monsoons have long been one of the Fox Valley’s most popular original acts. 

They’ve always been a big draw at Mile of Music, and if the loss of the festival in 2020 still stings, Wednesday should provide a little salve.

Kyle Megna and the Monsoons will headline this week’s edition of Live From Hydro Park in Downtown Kaukauna. It’ll serve as the grand finale for their pandemic-shortened season. Music gets underway at 5:30 p.m. with 715, a band from Appleton Rock School.

Organizers again remind concert attendees to practice social distancing and stay home if ill. Bring a lawn chair and some refreshments as there will be no food or beverage sales. The music runs through 8:30 p.m.

Verona Grove will take the stage on the southern end of the Fox Cities Wednesday Night as part of the Future Neenah Summer Concerts. 

The socially distanced show will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Riverside Park. 

For those mid-day music lovers, Thursday brings a solid bill with with Eric Krueger playing at Rookies as part of Appleton’s Lunchtime Live and Randy Peterson at Neenah’s Riverside Park as part of its Out to Lunch series.

Those more comfortable at home can stream the Heid Music Summer Concert Series on Thursday. Mistrial takes the stage at 6 p.m. and the event can be found at the Appleton Downtown Inc. Facebook page.

Sunday brings something a little bit different to our neck of the woods.

Wega Arts is bringing in Prof. Pinkerton’s Drive Thru Mini Circus to the Waupaca County Fairgrounds. Enjoy circus entertainment from the safety of your car as you pull up to the various acts. The event runs from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Those looking to punctuate the weekend with some outdoor live music can head to Waverly Beach where Amy Jo and the Downglow will perform from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
