The Nightfall Concert Series continues its 25th year of summer musical programming Friday with a headline show by Wheeler Brothers. The local opening act is Birds With Fleas. These free shows are held each Friday at Miller Plaza, now through Aug. 30.

Review for Wheeler Brothers:

Nightfall’s headliner, Wheeler Brothers, is a quintet from Austin, Tx. that traces a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, Americana, and blues. Along their journey as a band, they’ve opened for The Avett Brothers and made their TV debut on Last Call with Carson Daily. Wheeler Brothers are highly acclaimed by tastemakers such as Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, and The Washington Post, to name a few. In addition, they swept the “Austin Music Awards” at SXSW, including wins for “Best New Band” and “Best Roots Rock Band.” It’s no wonder they’ve never played a hometown gig that hasn’t sold out.

Review for Birds With Fleas:

Nightfall’s opening act, Birds With Fleas, is an indie folk/rock group originally from North Carolina, and has recently relocated to Chattanooga. The group infuses catchy hooks with intricate vocal harmonies. 

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.
