QUINCY — The State Street Theater is partnering with the District to promote “After Blues,” an additional late-night option for Quincy’s summer Fridays.
“After Blues” is part of the theater’s Summer Fridays series. The theater will be open from 6-11 p.m. every Friday in June and July. “After Blues” will provide a destination for attendees of Blues in the District who want a late-night option.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer another evening option to Quincy residents and to partner with the District to make it available,” Brian Stitt, manager of the State Street Theater, said in a press release. “It’s just a 10-minute walk from the park to the theater. We hope Blues attendees will join us for high-quality cocktails and eclectic live music.”
“We are happy to be working with the State Street Theater, a staple of the District landscape, as it relaunches this summer,” said Emily Lombardi, director of economic development for the District. “We believe this will add a welcome component to our Quincy blues tradition as we celebrate our 25-year anniversary.”
The State Street Theater was originally built in 1938 as a state-of-the art movie house. It has been converted into an elegant and versatile events venue for concerts, films, weddings or other private events. The theater’s Summer Fridays series will include a variety of experiences, including casual live music, an open mic night and a concert by Jason Kane and the Jive.
Blues in the District is a free outdoor concert series held in Washington Park on select Fridays during the summer. Food trucks will be on site throughout the concerts, along with a photo booth where patrons may pose with guitars and other instruments. Additional activities also are scheduled for the June 24 concert, which runs concurrent with the Q-Fest weekend.
Blues in the District is presented by Blessing Health System.
