On Friday, Flobots are performing a free show at Civic Center Park.

Friday's concert kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and features Flobots with comedian Phil Palisoul. The show, which is being presented by Levitt Pavilion, the non-profit organization behind the venue being built at Ruby Hill Park, is the first in a series of five upcoming shows at the park.

Other planned performances include Brandy Zdan with comedian Kevin Fitzgerald on Friday, August 26, Young Dubliners with comedian Janae Burris on Friday, September 16, Stooges Brass Band with comedian Aaron Urist on Friday, September 23 and John Fullbright with comedian Deacon Gray.

Flobots are working on a new, double-album titled NOENEMIES, which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign the band launched last fall that raised $81, 565 with the help of 1,293 backers.
