Coming to the Gazebo this summer: Tony Monaco, The Fabulous Johnson Brothers, Maza Blaska, The Spikedrivers, Mary Adam 12 and Nick Tolford & Company.

The Goodale Park Music Series seems like an immensely chill way to spend your Sunday afternoon. Post up for brunch somewhere in the Short North or Downtown, then roll to the park for free music from 12:30-2 p.m. Here's this year's performance schedule. (And I can tell you from my experience last Friday at Columbus Commons that Tolford and The Spikedrivers know how to rock a park proper.)

July 8: Tony Monaco

July 15: The Fabulous Johnston Brothers

July 29: Maza Blaska

August 5: The Spikedrivers

August 12: Mary Adam 12

August 19: Nick Tolford & Company

This year's events feature live art from a rotating group of locals including Short North artist Josey Joseph, Hayley Meyers with Terra Gallery, and youth artists from TRANSIT Arts. Local comic book companies including 2 Headed Monster Comics, Blink Comics, Nix Comics, Sunday Comix (a comic collective), Vantage:InHouse Productions (maker of U Cre-8 Comics for kids), and Yuri: The Awakening, will sell comic books at the shows. A kids' artmobile will be on site too.

Also, this being Columbus in 2012, there will be food carts.
