Alive @ Five 2013 openers announced

We’ve already heard and reacted to the news about this year’s Alive @ Five line-up, which includes the Wallflowers, Bret Michaels and Michael McDonald.

Now, the bands that will support the headline acts have been announced, via the Stamford Downtown Special Services District (check them out, below).

The openers were chosen from a pool of 400 submissions, with each band matched up with its corresponding headliner according to genre, according to the DSSD.

The summer concert series is to begin on Thursday, June 20 and continue every Thursday — with the exception of July 4 — until Aug. 15. Attendees age 12 and younger will be admitted free, but must enter before 7 p.m. The openers go on at 5 p.m.
