Reston Summer Bucket List: Rock Out in Herndon

Friday NIght Live/Credit: Friday Night Live

Every weekday in August, Reston Now will be offering suggestions for a Summer Bucket List — things to do, places to check out and activities to try in and around Reston before summer’s end.

Obviously, different ideas will appeal to different residents in different age groups. But we are open for ideas. If you have any “must-dos” of summer (even better: with a photo of you/your family participating in said event), email us at [email protected] and we will consider it.

Reston Summer Bucket List Item 5: Rock Out in Herndon

On summer Friday nights, Herndon’s Town Green (in front of the Herndon Fortnightly Library at 777 Lynn St.) is the place to be.

Sure, Reston Town Center has concerts on Saturday, but those can be a little subdued — as in bring your beach chair and actually sit in it.

At Friday Night Live, sponsored by the Town Of Herndon, the music usually lends itself to dancing — a U2 tribute band, a German heavy metal band and popular party band Gonzo’s Nose already on the stage this summer.

There are four FNLs left this season. Laura Lea and Tripp Fabulous — and all-woman rock band from Philly — play tonight. Aug. 14 is The Reflex (80s cover band); Aug. 21 is White Ford Bronco (90s music); and the Aug. 28 finale features popular Mic-Atlantic band Blue Label.

Showtimes are 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. You can bring a picnic, but no alcohol can be brought in (but is sold on site).
