American Rock and Roll in Baku

To wrap up a month-long celebration of American Days in Baku, Park Bulvar shopping mall will play host to an American-style rock concert featuring three bands this Sunday, May 1, begining at 12 noon.

Two bands featuring young American musicians from The International School of Azerbaijan (TISA) – ❤ (Less Than Three) and Entropy – will open the concert.  The Loaded Ladas, a band featuring Baku-resident international musicians, will perform American rock classics, as well.   The concert is free and open to the public.  With Park Bulvar’s support, it will be held on the outdoor terrace at the 3rd floor Food Court level of the shopping mall.

“From Washington to Chicago to San Francisco, many Americans celebrate spring and the return of warm weather with rock and roll concerts in parks and outdoor venues,” said Ambassador Matthew Bryza.  “So we decided to share this tradition with Azerbaijan to bring our countries together.”

Sponsored by the American Embassy and the Youth Club Public Union, a series of American Days events were organized throughout the month of April at the American Center at the Azerbaijan University of Languages.  The American Center, which features a library and extensive on-line resources, is open to students and all members of the public.
