Higher ground and City of Burlington Arts are teaming up for a new series of outdoor events in the South End. Backside 405 will take place behind BCA Studios at 405 Pine St., and will feature live music and DJs, food trucks and liquor sales. The series, which begins this weekend, will begin with a capacity of 500 people.

Backside 405 is expected to operate every Friday and Saturday through July. Kick-off on Friday May 28 will feature Ghost Disco DJ. Saturday’s show brings together a surf-rock band Barbacoa and psych-rock trio Quiltro. See the full range on Facebook.

The doors will open at 7 p.m. and the music will run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a specific cut-off time. Tickets should be in the range of $ 10 to $ 15. A season pass is available for $ 99.

“As most of the indoor venues (including HG) don’t reopen in earnest until the end of the summer, we wanted to provide a summer stage for artists who are hungry to perform again,” wrote Alex Crothers, co-owner of Higher. Ground, in an email. .

The performance area will be protected from the elements, and the shows are rain or shine. Masks are encouraged but not required for the event, according to a press release from Higher Ground.

Burlington City Council recently postponed a vote to end the city-wide mask ordinance to June 7. Although the masks are currently still needed in buildings and retail businesses in the City of Burlington, other areas of the Queen’s Town are regulated by the state orientation, which says only unvaccinated people should wear masks. The capacity for outdoor events is currently limited to 900 unvaccinated people.
