Royal Teeth, firekid, Future Thieves, and more!
Well there goes the neighborhood. There's a free all-day concert series coming to the North Knox / Happy Holler area on Saturday, August 26th, and it promises to be a big shindig. Sunset On Central returns this summer with a killer lineup that includes Royal Teeth, firekid, Future Thieves, and more.
A few months ago, the Sunset on Central Facebook page posted this video teasing an upcoming announcement.
Born & Raised Productions are putting on this event. They have this one date lined up for August of this year, and their hope is to turn that into a monthly summer series by2018.
According to the press release, "Sunset On Central is an all-day concert featuring nine bands on two stages, food trucks, local vendors, and activities for kids."
Now. Let's dig into this lineup:
Many know this band from their popular song "Wild" that appeared in the video game FIFA, American Idol, Last Call With Carson Daily, and handful of other movies and TV shows. They'll be kicking things off at Forecastle this week, before their tour supporting their new EP Amateurs brings them here to Knoxville for Sunset.
Firekid will make his triumphant return to Knoxville after selling out a couple of Knoxville Secret Shows at Pretentious Beer Co. and Ironwood Studios. He signed with Atlantic Records in the spring of 2015 and spent 2016 touring in support of his self-titled debut album with bands like Kaleo and Moon Taxi.
Future Thieves have stirred up plenty of attention from fans throughout Music City and then beyond the city limits, onstage at Bonnaroo and Summerfest and back home for Live On The Green, on tours with the Black Cadillacs and 10 Years and at venues in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta and throughout their expanding territory.
