Austin psych-rock band the Black Angels will open this year’s KGSR Blues on the Green series in Zilker Park with a May 23 concert, the station announced today. Local dream-pop band Night Glitter, featuring Thievery Corporation touring member LouLou Ghelichkani, will open.

It’s the first of four free Wednesday shows in the park, with June 13, July 18 and Aug. 8 performers to be named later. Music starts at 8 p.m.

The announcement comes a day after Levitation, the festival created and organized by members of the Black Angels, wrapped up a four-day weekend of shows at various downtown venues, including several sellouts. Black Angels headlined Sunday night’s show at Stubb’s to help close out the fest.
