MADISON, NJ—The Downtown Concert Series begins this Friday, 6-8 p.m., with a blast from the past as local Madison band “What’s What” pumps jams from the 70s, 80s and 90s into the eardrums of concert goers on the lawn of the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts.

The throwback cover band will headline the first of six free, summer performances at the museum, held every other Friday at the museum on 9 Main St. through Sept. 8.

Each show is “family friendly,” the museum said, and picnicking is welcome. All concert goers are invited to set up chairs and blankets on the lawn for a more comfortable listening experience.
