AVON — On Wednesday, Aug. 1, Avon LIVE! free community concert series concludes with Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Experience, a celebration of the King of Pop, at the Avon Performance Pavilion at Harry A. Nottingham Park. Susto opens the evening’s live music, which begins at 5:30 p.m.

Who’s Bad is the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band and the only one to predate his untimely passing. To open the evening’s music, Susto takes the spacey country-rock music of the band’s debut into the stratosphere, piling on layers of sighing keyboards, galloping rhythms and frayed, noisy guitar solos atop wistful melodies and lyrics that examine growing up and growing into yourself.

The concert is free to the public and, in partnership with the Avon Lake Street Market, features street food trucks and tents; beer, wine and spirits; booths with local produce, crafts and gifts; and the Lettuce Patch kids’ zone, featuring a Bouncy Castle and face painting.
