2015 FRIST FRIDAYS REMAININIG LINEUP*:
August 28 Those Darlins
Those Darlins are edgy and seductive, both in sound and personal style. The fashion- and attitude-forward Nashville trio has released three albums since their formation in 2006, the most recent of which, Blur The Line (2013), received widespread praise and the “Best Live Act of 2014” award from Paste magazine. Members Jessi Zazu, Nikki Kvarnes, and Linwood Regensburg blend rock and roll, alt-country, and garage rock to create a sound that is sensual and often spiked. Those Darlins have toured with rock acts, including Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Drive-by Truckers, JEFF the Brotherhood, and have been featured by NPR, SPIN Magazine, and Pitchfork.
Admission to each Frist Fridays concert is free for Frist Center members and to visitors 18 years and younger. General adult admission is $12.00 for not-yet-members, $9.00 for seniors and college students with ID and $7.00 for military.
Frist Fridays feature a special selection of economically priced snack food items in the Frist Center Café. The selections will vary for each event and will include such items as chicken wings, sliders, corn dogs and soft pretzels and will range in price from $2.50 to $4.50.
