FREE: Athens Summer Concert Series Kicks Off on Friday

June 14th, 2017, 11:00 am by Greg

The Athens Summer Concert Series returns to Riverfront Park in Athens this summer, kicking off on Friday (June 16) with southern rock veterans E.B. Jeb.

While several tribute bands (EagleMania, The Machine, Highway to Hell) have crept into the line-up, Athens’ free concert series remains one of the best (and most overlooked) series in Greater Nippertown, boasting world-class blues (Joe Louis Walker, Indigenous), rock (the Weight Band, Southside Johnny) and more.
