What better way to spend a warm summer evening than watching the sun set over the raging waters over the US National Whitewater Center as you relax and listen to the bluesy Thom Crumpton Trio? This band, is just one of the many appearing at various dates during the free Subaru River Jam summer concert series at the Center. The stage, set against a backdrop of water, gives you the chance to kick back on the river bank with a cold one, while listening to music. Also, you'll have a great view of the clumps of squawking, giggling rafters as they splash their way down the channel. Free. 7 p.m.-10 p.m. US National Whitewater Center, 5000 Whitewater Center Pkwy. 704-391-3900. www.usnwc.org.
