5/11-12: Musicians Corner

There are few better ways to celebrate nice weather than with live music outdoors. So this weekend, load up on the SPF and head to Centennial Park for the kickoff of Musicians Corner, starting tomorrow.

Friday will be an acoustic night from 5-9 p.m. with Reuben Bidez, Striking Matches, and a handful of other emerging artists. There’s also going to be a slew of food trucks and artisan vendors. For a schedule and list of vendors, head to the event calendar. 

Saturday, the stage will be back open starting at noon, and the shows will end at 6:00 p.m. The first act is Viva Mexico, and they take the stage at 1:30 p.m. Before that, there will be food trucks and vendors set up, as well as free yoga at 12:30 from Blooma Nashville Yoga. Past-feature Nikki Lane is the last set, and she takes the stage at 4:30 p.m.
