Sept. 5, Big Freedia: New Orleans’s based rapper and the Queen of Bounce
The Queen of Bounce herself is hitting Chattanooga next month and bringing all her famous earth-quaking grooves to The Signal. After dominating the Nola club scene for over a decade, Big Freedia is now bringing the Bouncemovement to a world-wide stage. A vibrant twist on hip-hop, Bounce music is characterized by call-and-response lyrics over rapid-fire beats and booty-shaking. This is your chance to show off your best Bounce moves like “the twerk” (popularized by Miley Cyrus in 2013), “the shake,” “the wiggle,” “the bend ova,” and the “hands on the ground.” www.bigfreedia.com

Oct. 5, Yacht Rock Revue: 70s & 80s epic hits
Yacht Rock Revue is bringing their stadium rock energy to the Chattanooga shores! Yacht Rock is everything the late 70s and early 80s should’ve been: massive sing-along soft rock hits, tight bell-bottom jeans, impeccable musicianship, polyester shirts, glorious vocal harmonies, sunglasses at night, breezy dancing and sax … lots of sax. From Hall & Oates, Kenny Loggins and Michael Jackson to one-hit wonders like “Brandy’” and “Baby Come Back,” YRR covers all your favorites. Toto’s “Africa” has never sounded so good.
Oct. 25, Nick Lutsko: Chattanooga’s own masquerade alt-party
Grab your masks and come get weird with hometown hero, Nick Lutsko and the Gimmix for his Album Release + Masquerade party. Nick Lutsko is a songwriter, producer, and performer and his band parades Muppet-like costumes on stage, but don’t let the playfulness fool you. Underneath the attire are extremely talented musicians playing what could ultimately be described as “indie” music, but with hints of funk, pop, folk, and blues. Come let loose and have some fun during a night of mystery, music, and intrigue.
