June 20, 2011

Join Theatre Bristol this summer for a series of music events sure to keep your toes tapping! In continued efforts to reach new audiences and provide unique entertainment, Theatre Bristol is bringing music downtown in a unique setting, the ARTspace, located in the heart of historic downtown Bristol. It’s not your typical noisy, smoke-filled bar. “A private listening room” “a show like atmosphere,” “Great Space!” are all comments from past bands that have graced Theatre Bristol’s stage. Come down and hear some amazing bands! Tickets are available on-line at Theatre Bristol’s website www.theatrebristol.org. “It’s an eclectic mix of music genres with something for everyone who loves music and a great opportunity to hear new and unique acts not typically found in our area” according to Spence Flagg, Theatre Bristol’s board president. Concerts are at 8:00 p.m., with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Keep your eyes peeled to Theatre Bristol’s website and Facebook page for July and August concerts! 423.968.4977 www.theatrebristol.org

June concerts feature the following two bands.

Friday, June 24 Wise Old River
Wise Old River is a relatively new group. They have all done music for years, but separately. The songs they want to share are about the human condition, human experience, times of need, times of pain, times of being lost and times of being found, their searching and finding hope, grace and truth and their times of spiritual growth. They sing about it all. Their desire is for their music to be stripped down organic, earthy, wires, wood and vibrations from our souls.

Saturday, June 25 Bonepony
..."About Bonepony — "It makes you feel good inside." That's the catch phrase Nashville, Tennessee's Bonepony uses to describe what they do, and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who has seen the band that didn't agree. They've been making people feel good inside for years as they criss-cross the nation, stopping in every big city and wide-spot-in-the-road town in America and bringing their unique brand of "Stomp Rock" to their audiences with all the fervor of a traveling tent revival mixed equally with arena-rock spectacle.
