Live On The Green preview for 8/22

Live On the Green Michael franti

Live On The Green preview is sponsored by Atkinson Remodeling.

Well Nashville it’s nearly that time of the week again, no not Hump Day, but Thursday which brings with it Lightning 100’s Live on the Green. Heading into the third week we look back and remember fondly the past two weeks as we watched Gin Wigmore, ZZ Ward, Erin McCarley, The Mowgli’s, Matt & Kim, and Matt Nathanson grace the stage in Public Square Park. This week will prove that third time really is a charm when two Nashville powerhouse acts join an international ambassador of all things hip-hop, reggae, and soul. Accompanying the music will of course be a wide variety of local craft beers, and food trucks. If you missed out on the first two week or maybe you have never attended a Live on the Green, be sure to come down this week and start a new Thursday night tradition.

Michael Franti & Spearhead

Since their first release in 1994 with Home Michael Franti & Spearhead have been spreading politically and socially aware music around the globe. Not only will their music get you thinking but it will get you movin’ and a shakin’ as well. Deeply rooted in hip-hop, reggae, soul, jazz, and rock (to mention a few) this band will surely get you on your feet first, then into the air with songs like “Say Hey (I Love You)” and “The Sound of Sunshine.” Coming off of their latest release All People which dropped July 30, 2013 Michael Franti & Spearhead are sure to bring the house down this Thursday at Public Square Park. So grab the family or a date and spend your Thursday night with Michael Franti, Lightning 100, and the rest of Nashville.
