    There absolutely is a schedule and each show is posted beforehand. This show was a featured post and in the LynnHappens calendar in advance. The page with the full schedule is in the top menu and the link is – http://lynnhappens.com/new-music-in-the-square/

    I’m sorry you missed it. But LynnHappens always posts these in advance and not just afterwards.Here is a link to the advance posting for today’s show – http://lynnhappens.com/event/new-music-in-the-square-brittaney-brannock-joe-skahan/

    They are also shared on the LynnHappens fb page, but the way fb pages work, not everyone on the page sees every post unless they choose to get notifications in their settings for that page.

    They are every Wednesday 5:30 to 7:30pm, weather depending. Always on the Central Square Island.

    However, this post under which you commented is advanced notice for July 3rd and 4th 🙂 The Red Rock events are produced by Friends of Lynn and Nahant Beach while the Central Square shows are produced by LynnHappens.com
