The Opus Taylor concert today at The Take Me To The Bridge Music Series is postponed until August 14. There is a small amount of rain forecast this afternoon at the worst time for the band to set up. We will look to kick things off next weekend with Bonnie Finken/Jon Locker/Seth Hedquist. 4-6 the 22nd. Yay Iowa weather, right?
