Councilman James Peden's Friday Fest concert series continues at Highview Park Sept. 7 w/Sub-Urban Situation, Dixiland Solution
Metro Councilman James Peden (District 23) is sponsoring Friday Fest, a free summer concert series at Highview Park based on the success of the former Music in the Metro series.
A different Friday Fest concert will be held every other Friday through September and the event is open to the public, family friendly, and free, according to a news release.
Friday, September 7, gates will open at 5 p.m. and music is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
On the bill are Sub-Urban Situation (Soul/R&B) and Dixieland Solution (Dixie/Jazz).
Sub-Urban Situation is a top-rated Louisville band. Here’s their bio from their website.
Sub-Urban Situation has traveled around the Midwest and East Coast United States for the past 6 years performing for crowds at some of the the regions best venues, including the historic Kenny’s Castaways in Greenwich Villiage, NYC and Brooklyn’s Liberty Heights Tap Room. With two albums (“Parallax”-2006, “The City EP”-2008) under their belt, Sub-Urban Situation’s third album “Lost Melodies” was released on June 1, 2011. A few major accomplishments for Sub-Urban Situation have been their Midwest and East Coast tours, being voted into the WFPK 91.9 fm Louisville’s “Virtual Hall of Fame” alongside artists including My Morning Jacket, John Butler Trio, Ani DiFranco, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. This band is all about the music; forget the theatrics, forget the costumes, if you are a music lover, you will enjoy and respect the music this band is creating. Sub-Urban Situation has been very honored to perform with such great national talent like Devon Allman and Honey Tribe, Sister Hazel, Perpetal Groove, The Phunk Junkeez, Paradime, Ana Popovic, The VilleBillies, Nappy Roots, Spike Davis (Comedian) and many other artists.
There’s not as much about Dixieland Solution on the Internet, but we did find their Facebook page here.
Local vendors will be on hand with a variety of food options, and attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket, according to the release.
