Keith Urban isn't coming to Los Altos, but he's passing through by proxy. Los Altos Hardware is dishing up barbecue, chips and drinks 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 18) while country music station KRTY plays music from in front of the store. The station is gathering names for a ticket raffle to Urban's Saturday night show at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, offering a pair of third-row seats.
Los Altos Hardware proprietor Sue Nesmith said her daughter Nina proposed getting on the radio station's schedule of concert stops to bring the country music they enjoy live to their 441 First St. locale. The Nesmith's are pitching in the tri-tip sandwiches and fixings, and holding their own raffle for a Weber barbecue.
The event is free and open to all comers. "It's just something fun to do and we thought we'd try it," Nesmith said.
