June 13--TWIN FALLS -- The days are heating up, which means the nights soon will be filled with music.

The Twin Falls Tonight Concert Series returns to downtown Wednesday with new bands and old favorites. Twin Falls Tonight is from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays from June 18 to Aug. 13 at the fountain on Main Avenue.

This is the 15th year for the concert series, which is designed to bring the community to the heart of the city for a night of music, drink, food, vendors and Market on Main, a farmers market. Each music night is sponsored by a Magic Valley business.

Last year, the series drew 800 to 1,500 people every Wednesday. More than 1,500 attended the last performance of 2013.

A lot of bands have asked to play in the concert series, said Robin Dober, chairwoman of the Twin Falls Tonight committee.

"It's difficult. We listen to music and try to have variety. We try to keep to what the audience seems to like," Dober said.

The Barking Owls, a local folk/bluegrass band, will kick off the series with its first appearance at Twin Falls Tonight.

"We've been wanting to play it for the last couple of years, but things haven't worked out," said Erik Wenninger of The Barking Owls. "We're excited to rectify that this year and be a part of this event. We're happy to be involved in any event in the area that supports a more vibrant downtown and brings together good people, good food and good sophisticated adult beverages."

Another band to perform for the first time is The Soulistics, of Salt Lake City. The band's website page describes its style as classic soul featuring music from James Brown, Joss Stone, Aretha Franklin, Sly Stone and more.
