You can find just about anything shopping around Bayshore – and this summer, that includes live music and free movies as the community center will host both the Sounds of Summer live music series as well as its Family Flicks movie series throughout the summer. 

The Sounds of Summer live music series is presented with OnMilwaukee.

Hosted in The Yard, the center's open-air space, Sounds of Summer will take the stage on Friday nights from 6-8 p.m. as well as Saturday afternoons from noon until 2 p.m. Meanwhile Family Flicks will roll film in The Yard every Wednesday night from 5-7 p.m. through Oct. 6.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
