Every year, the lineups for Issaquah’s Concerts on the Green have some sort of overarching theme. For the 19th season, organizer David Harris thought he’d try something different — let the audience decide.
“At the last concert from last year, I asked the crowd to let me know what bands they’d like to see or see again,” Harris said. “Most bands this year, then, are ones the audience would like to see. A majority are ones they asked to see again.”
