The bad news: Amazing Hip Hop crew The Cool Kids had to cancel their appearance at this Saturday’s free Beats Summer Concert Series on Fountain Square. The good news: The good folks at local kick-ass promo group Self Diploma have found at great replacement — rapper D-Why — and the rest of the lineup is strong enough to stand on its own (with locals Those Guys, Puck and DJ Drowsy, plus Athens, Ohio’s Bailee Moore).
And it’s still free! One of the main events that has helped bring Cincinnati’s center core to life on Saturday nights, if you haven’t yet, do yourself a favor and check it out at least once before the series concludes at the end of August. Free. Music starts at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4. Fountain Square, Downtown.
