The Dog Days of Summer

Not all Streetmosphere fans come out on two legs. Usually, there’s more than one furry, four-legged friend in the crowd, and the last weekend of June was no exception. One of our most dedicated fan-dogs is a little grey terrier named Ike.

Ike, along with his owner, loves to experience the sights and sounds of Downtown. Whether it’s a visual artist painting, such as the lovely Ren Burke, or the whimsical sounds of Fiddle Whamdiddle, Ike is always more than happy to visit. His owner mentioned that he loves to be downtown, and that coming out for Streetmosphere has become a weekly ritual.

This past Saturday, Ike took a seat to listen to Robert Cline Jr. and Matt Skinner, a duo who play songs reminiscent of Johnny Cash. The two were more than happy to take requests from the crowd, and even attracted some young dancers (age 1-6), who were literally jumping for joy. While Ike isn’t a big jumper, being a very polite dog, he was more than happy with his musical afternoon!

Come out and meet Ike, as well as our wonderful performers, this weekend. For more information about Streetmosphere artists and schedules, be sure to check out our website or our Facebook page and take our survey to let us know what you think! And don’t forget, while you’re at next week’s event, pick up a guidebook to learn more about our sponsors!
