Riverfront Nights Summer Music Series is winding down with only two more concerts left. To celebrate returning college students, at 8 p.m., this Saturday's headliner, Fishbone, will be providing energetic, upbeat entertainment you don't want to miss.
Still a relative secret in the worlds of Pop and Rock music, Fishbone has released numerous innovative, clever, genre-bending, cult-classic albums like 'Fishbone', 'Truth and Soul', 'The Reality of My Surroundings' and 'Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx'.
Fishbone lives up to their legend as "the" group to bridge the gap between the funk of George Clinton and the blare of Rush. The classic, original Godfathers of Black Punk/Ska Funk, whose sound helped invent the "Red Hot Chili Peppers" are a perfect soundtrack to welcome home area college students.
Starting off the night at 7 p.m., Opposite Box will offer a whirlwind of genre-shifting excitement and mind-bending confusion landing somewhere between the eclecticism of Mr. Bungle and the improvisational styling of The Secret Chiefs 3 and The Mars Volta.These guys harness the power of the "blaxaphone and 'bone combo" to put the smack down on all.
Saturday's "On the Green" event is Bike Night.
All shows are child and pet friendly. Beer sales begin at 6:30 p.m. Local opening bands start around 7 p.m. and headliners kick into high gear promptly at 8 p.m., playing until around 10 p.m.
Eco-Friendly Businesses & Charities gather at the "green|spaces" tent. This week will spotlight Land Trust for Tennessee.
The 'Dog Pound' under the Pup Tent will feature East Tennessee Alliance for Animals.
