Live On the Green, Nashville’s new, free outdoor concert series, will take place over six consecutive Thursday nights starting Sept. 3 with performances by rockers the Toadies, American Bang, and the variety of artists featured on this year’s Ten Out of Tenn compilation album and tour.
The series runs through Oct. 8 and will take place each week at 6 p.m. on the Public Square in front of the Metro Courthouse downtown. The fall concert series, hosted by Mayor Karl Dean and Lightning 100, will promote environmental responsibility with on-site recycling, a free bike check, and merchandise made from recyclable and organic materials. Lightning 100’s Team Green will be organizing community events, such as tree plantings and clean-ups, to offset the carbon footprint for the concert series in an effort to make it a carbon-neutral event.
Rabbit Hole Recording, a new company started by Jake Jorgovan and Kevin Fulda, is sponsoring the event by providing audio/video production services.
