Andrew Skates Performs at The Post at River East

On a recent visit to Lola’s Trailer Park, I heard light, virtuosic strumming. On stage, Andrew Skates was performing an intricate classical guitar composition with ease. You can catch Skates’ mesmerizing guitar performances this month at The Post at River East in the Riverside area. The open-air venue offers a wide range of food and drink options. No cover charge.
