Knoxville's Top Five Live Shows For The Week (9/7/2018)

It's another big big weekend and a Friday-heavy lineup. This week however, the roster of live music is jam-packed every single day of the week from today until next Thursday. Now that Knox County and the University of Tennessee are back in session, all the events are in full swing in terms of live music as well as events in general. 

On top of all that, tonight is First Friday! So not only are there great sounds to get out and hear, there is also all kinds of visual art to get out and see. This weekend also kicks off the Tennessee Valley Fair that is bringing in some big names and music veterans like Rick Springfield tonight. We'll talk more about that in the Top Five segment next week when Bone Thugs-n-Harmony come to town. (Shout out to Uncle Charles, y'all!)

As always there are plenty of great shows that aren't officially in the Top Five segment this week like a fundraiser at Open Chord with Andy Wood and Handsome and the Humbles' album release show at Scruffy City Hall. For our full list of shows to check out in Knoxville, you can view our Live Music Calendar here. 

Here are the shows we talked about in the segment:
