It's near impossible to imagine on a day like today, but summer is right around the corner. Accordingly, the city rolled out its roster of free outdoor concerts this afternoon. This year's series, which runs from June 18 to August 16 at Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, features a handful of big-name gets, including Aimee Mann, Anoushka Shankar, and Willie Colón. Also peppering the lineup are locals Whitney and Ne-Hi.

Shows begin at 6:30 p.m. As always, BYO brie and rosé.
