The North Carolina Museum of Art kicks off its 2018 Summer Concert Series with First Aid Kit and Jade Bird on Friday, June 8, which is already sold out as are tickets for Mandolin Orange’s June 23 show.

“Summer concerts and movies have been an NCMA tradition for two decades, and we’re excited to launch another season of great music and entertainment,” the website states. “Our venue — the Joseph M.
