Local musicians invited to collaborate
Music City is just a hop, skip and a jump down the interstate, and local musicians are invited to make the trip toward collaboration and creativity.
The historic War Memorial Auditorium and Artist Growth, a groundbreaking software platform that empowers musicians to manage their own development, are collaborating to create a monthly "Celebrate the City" concert series that brings touring artists and emerging artists together in celebration of Music City's unique music culture.
The first "Celebrate the City" concert is slated for 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, at the War Memorial Auditorium and will feature Reptar, Rubblebucket, and Nashville-based Cherub, which actually got its start in Murfreesboro.
Tickets are $15 and currently on sale at www.tpac.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, or at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center Box Office, located at 505 Deaderick St. in Nashville.
"Celebrate the City" is presented in association with Yelp, Nashville Scene, Lightning 100 FM, Music City Networks, Happy Salmon Productions, BombPlates, and Jive!
