Freefall Concert Series Returns this Fall

Freefall returns this fall with 9 FREE concerts

Sept 1 through Oct 27.

WTJU and IX Art Park have partnered again to bring you the 4th annual Freefall Concert Series. With artists such as Cville Allstars, Mama Tried, Guerillas Do Gorillaz, and many more, Freefall‘s 4th year is sure to be a musical treat. You can see the full lineup at the Freefall website.

Freefall isn’t just about the music, it’s about community as well! We’re excited to host the Black Business Expo (Sept 22) and Cville Sabroso (Oct 7) again as well as a new community event: Ruidosa (Oct 6), a celebration of female musicians.

Mark your calendars for fall evenings filled with local food trucks, beer, mixed drinks, and great music. Located at IX Art Park (in the event of rain, the concert will be held indoors at IX Art Park), every concert is free and open to the public.

Concerts will run from 5-9 pm although events (Cville Sabroso, Black Business Expo, and Ruidosa) will start earlier.

New this year, we’re offering VIP passes for concertgoers who want to get the most out of their Freefall experience. Those who purchase passes will get free drink tickets, access to an air-conditioned lounge, and a Freefall 2018 t-shirt.

Find out more at the WTJU store.

    This has to be one of the most unusual albums of choral music I’ve listened to. The concept is solid — sacred music by 20th Century Czech composers. What’s unusual is the relationship between the composers. The Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno performs two works by Bohuslav Martinu. Rounding out the album are works by […]

He blends blues, rock and a variety of sensitivities, whether by feeling or musicality. The song order here is unusual, starting with two strong rockers beyond which the songs are mostly […]
