Nashville’s Loveless Cafe was fortunate enough to keep above water during the weekend’s devastating flood, and tonight (5/5) the venerable eatery will give a little back to those suffering through this disaster. Tonight’s presentation of the popular Music City Roots series at the Loveless Barn, with artists donating their time, will be free to the public. Donations for flood victims will be accepted at the door, with all money collected going to the Community Foundation. Doors open at 6:00 PM, and the show – featuring Elizabeth Cook, The Wrights, Kevin Gordon and Stephen Simmons – starts at 7:00 PM.
The Frist Center for the Visual Arts is also offering Middle Tennesseans respite from the events of recent days with a free admission offer that has now been extended through Sunday, May 9. The decision to extend the free admission offer was made this morning (5/5) by Executive Director Susan H. Edwards.
