The Nightfall concert series is one of Chattanooga’s crown jewels when it comes to music events. Every local band wants to play Nightfall, but to headline a night there – well, that is just too cool. 25 local bands will get their chance to do just that, starting tonight at Rhythm & Brews.
But what about Chattanooga music fans? For just $7, music lovers can see 6 bands perform at their very best, vying for that coveted headliner spot at Nightfall. The event will take place tonight, with another 6 bands tomorrow night, as well as next Friday and Saturday night. And, in the 4 preliminary rounds, you get to decide who wins! In the final round, judges will decide the winner from finalists you picked.
The schedule will feature a wide variety of music from about every genre. Believe me, there is something for everyone at the Road to Nightfall. The fun starts at 8 p.m. each night, and you get 20 minutes from each of 5 bands.
