It has been gray, humid and overcast since Monday and more of the same is forecasting through Wednesday -- far from good stargazing weather.

As a result, a Wednesday concert by The Moldy Suitcases followed by a look through a Brown University astronomer's telescope to see Saturn and its moons and rings has been pushed back one night.

So you'll have to wait one more day to hear the original sounds of The Moldy Suitcases, a "quirky crew" who are "dedicated to the underground music of the 19a0s" and "look like a musical yard sale" with members playing suitcases, home made instruments, ukuleles and upright bass," according to city release.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. is sponsored by Jenkins Construction.

Then, at 9 p.m., it's time for the "Apres Concert Star Gazing" featuring Scott MacNeill of Brown University's Astronomical Laboratories, who will bring a high-powered telescope and knowledge of the cosmos.

"The Milky Way, Saturn, its moons and rings should be ripe for viewing," the release stated. 

If you plan on going, come about 15 minutes early with a blanket or lawn chair as seating is on the grass. You'll need time to find a place to park and walk to the quarry meadow.

The event is part of Music Month -- a series of Ballad Park events this summer.
