Review for All Cows Eat Grass: 

All Cows Eat Grass is an electro-funk band and art collective based in the pastures of Atlanta. Friends for a lifetime, these native Tennessee kids started their career traveling the world as the producers and music directors for six-time Grammy nominee Janelle Monáe's live performance. Jam sessions on the road resulted in the creation of tribal, funky, electro-trap tunes that express a locally-cultivated world sound. Through the power of music, All Cows Eat Grass organically came to life, morphing into an eclectic and unique trio.

Review for Seaux Chill: 

Nabil Ince, stage name Seaux Chill, is an artist originally from Columbia, Md. who has been in the Chattanooga area for the past few years. Piano is his first love, playing since he was six-years-old. However, Nabil also loves producing music, composing melodies, and writing poetry/hip-hop. 

The Levitt AMP Chattanooga Music Series will be held on Thursday nights on the lawn of the Bessie Smith Cultural Center from Aug. 24-Oct. 26 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.  This series will invigorate the lawn of the Bessie Smith Cultural Center in the historic Martin Luther King district, shining a light on the area’s renowned musical heritage. 

Food for purchase will be provided by Dipped Fresh, Chew Chew Chattanooga, Chatter Box Cafe, Taqueria Jalisciense, Choo Choo Ice, and Bruster’s Ice Cream.  Beverage for purchase will be provided by Oddstory Brewing Company and Barley Chattanooga. 

The Bessie Smith Cultural Center has 70 parking spaces in its lot available. After 6 p.m., there is free street parking located along MLK Boulevard and Houston Street. After 6 p.m., there are various public parking lots near the property that are available.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: How Would I Vote?

I don’t know what to think or who to believe in the debacle surrounding Alabama’s Roy Moore and his quest for a Senate seat. I have no earthly idea what he did or how he acted 40 years ago. Heck, I can’t remember what I did or how I acted 40 years ago but I do recall I kissed some minors back then. To be real honest, they were the only ones that would let me, this because I was ...
