Reno's Artown runs the whole month of July, with the 2013 Artown Opening Night concert on Monday, July 1, at Wingfield Park. Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon will be featured in a 40th anniversary performance featuring Corey Glover, Karl Denson, Melvin Gibbs, Nona Hendryx, and more. Their show is called "The Return to the Dark Side of the Moon." Local band Jelly Bread will be the opening act. The music starts around 7 p.m., but get there early if you want to get close enough to enjoy the show. Artown opening nights are always packed out.
Reno's Artown is the whole month of July.

Give $3 to Keep Artown Free. With over 66% of its events free, Artown is continuing the campaign to solicit a few extra bucks to support this non-profit organization. The goal is to increase individual contributions so Artown can continue to present the high-caliber free programming attendees have come to expect. You can donate at various venues during Artown or go to the website and kick in a few bucks online.
