The Nightfall Concert Series continues its 25th year of summer musical programming Friday with a headline show by Kansas Bible Company. The opening act is The Nim Nims. These free shows are held each Friday at Miller Plaza, now through Aug. 30. 

Review for Kansas Bible Company:

The Kansas Bible Company came into being during the summer of 2008 at Goshen College in Northern Indiana. Featuring a five-man horn line, three guitars, two percussionists and one bass, the Kansas Bible Company plays music influenced by surf, soul, progressive, hip-hop, classical, pep band, and good old fashioned rock and roll. All 11 members moved into a house in Nashville in the summer of 2011. The band currently has two full-length albums, Ad Astra Per Aspera, Hotel Chickamauga, as well as an EP, Surf Rock Trilogy. In addition, the band was just recently picked by jam band heroes, Widespread Panic, to open up for them in Pelham, Ala. on July 19.

Review for the Nim Nims:

Opening act, The Nim Nims are an independent rock band from Chattanooga.  Featuring five local musicians, they’ve been part of the Chattanooga music scene for almost a decade.  While they’re currently working on a new album, you can pick up their latest release, Baristas, Fashionistas and Mother Teresas, which came out in late 2011. 

Presented and produced by Chattanooga Presents, Nightfall continues to bring an eclectic mix of music to downtown Chattanooga. Nightfall showcases the local arts community by featuring Chattanooga musicians for each opening act, beginning at 7 p.m., followed by performances by national and international talent beginning at 8 p.m. Beer, wine, food and non-alcoholic drink concessions are available on site. No outside food or beverages are allowed.

Presale booklets for discount beverage tickets, good for beer and wine, will be available on site now through the end of June. Each booklet contains 20 tickets and costs $80 (this is a savings of $20 from individually priced tickets). These tickets save time and money by allowing patrons to avoid the regular ticket lines at Nightfall, and simply get their ticket booklet and wristbands with a photo ID at the Express Line.

Use The Current Rail System Already In Place - And Response

Why spend $20 million or more on an unproven system to run from the Southside of Chattanooga when we already have the beginnings of a system?  The question apparently has surfaced of why the Choo Choo City doesn't have a rail line. We do have a rail line with the Tennessee Valley RR Museum and their hardware. And they already make runs from the Southside to close to Enterprise ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Clemson Prayer And Much More

Clemson’s football program, which has won 11 games in each of the past two years and was ranked 8 th in the nation after whipping Ohio State in this year’s Orange Bowl, has just been “blind-sided.” The Freedom from Religion Foundation claims Coach Dabo Sweeney and his staff are doing far too much “to promote Christianity to their student athletes.” Clemson promptly roared back ...
