After two years off due to the pandemic, Union Pool's free "Summer Thunder" series is back for 2022, happening Sunday afternoons in June, July and August on the venue's back patio. This will be the 10th anniversary of the series, and things kick off June 5 with Katy Kirby. The lineup also includes The Messthetics (ft Fugazi's Brendan Canty and Joe Lally) on 6/12, Tonstartssbandht on 6/19, Sheer Mag on 6/26, Summer Thunder regular Joe Bataan on July 3, Maral + Eric Copeland (Black Dice) on 7/17, Jamaican dancehall artist Sister Nancy on 7/24, and Natural Information Society on 7/31, with five more shows still to be announced.
