Nightfall Concert Series Continues Friday With Seth Walker

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

The 2014 Nightfall free concert series continues its schedule of summer musical programming Friday at Miller Plaza with a headline show by Seth Walker at 8 p.m. Opening at 7 p.m. will be Remembering January. Nightfall is hosted each Friday at Miller Plaza through Aug. 29.

Review for Seth Walker:

Seth Walker is an American electric blues singer, guitarist and songwriter. He has released seven albums to date. Walker's musical genres also include Americana and jazz. His 2009 album, Leap of Faith peaked at number two in the US Billboard Top Blues Album chart.  Delbert McClinton remarked "The first time I heard Seth Walker at a small club in Nashville I was impressed like I haven't been impressed in 30 years, with performance, presence and great songs." 

In his early twenties Walker moved to Austin and began to develop his skills as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. Since 1998 he has released five albums, receiving critical acclaim. Walker performed at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in September 2011, and has toured supporting both Raul Malo and The Wood Brothers. The song "Back in Your Arms Again", jointly penned by Malo, Nicholson and Walker, was recorded for The Mavericks' 2013 album, In Time, and released by them as a single. 

Walker lived for 15 years in Austin, before he relocated in 2009 to Nashville where he recorded “Time Can Change” (2012). In November of that year, Walker shifted to New Orleans and started work on an EP. In August 2013, he planned to release three such EPs, each in a different musical genre, and in various roles utilising Raul Malo, Oliver Wood (from the Wood Brothers) and John Porter.

Review for Remembering January: 

Opening the Nightfall show at 7 p.m. is Remembering January. Upon forming in January of 2010, Remembering January has been making a name for themselves with a mixture of originals and covers around the North Georgia and Tennessee area. The band has performed at numerous venues including back-to-back Riverbend Festivals with the band comprising the core members of the Chattanooga All-Star Band in 2013.

During down time between shows, the band has recorded and released their debut EP. Drawing from influences such as Blackberry Smoke, Travis Tritt and Stevie Ray Vaughan, these young men have developed a Southern sound unlike any other. From their rebellious, country-anthem "Our Crowd" to the soothing, upbeat of Zac Brown's "Keep Me in Mind", this band's repertoire of crowd pleasers will cement their status as one of this region's best bands. 

Presented and produced by Chattanooga Presents, Nightfall brings an eclectic mix of music to downtown Chattanooga. Nightfall showcases Chattanooga’s local arts community by featuring Chattanooga musicians for each opening act, followed by headline performances by national and international talent. Food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink concessions are available on site. No outside food or beverages are allowed.

This Friday night is the final for the Nightfall discount ticket booklets, good for beer and wine. Each booklet contains 20 tickets and costs $80 (this is a 20 percent savings off the regular ticket price.) As always, photo IDs are required for any alcohol purchase.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about.

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

Last Saturday morning in paradise, at 8:07 to be precise, an alert appeared on every cell phone that read: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER.

It was a long and dreadful 38 minutes until the correction ... (click for more)
