September 14 • The Beulah Boys | Soul Line Dancing
Special “Seniors Day” Performance
These retired professional gentlemen have the city all lit up with their smooth moves, precision steps and good looks. The Beulah Boys have a love of life, a new found love of soul line dancing and a desire to inspire, motivate, and entertain others.
September 21 • Matt Hires | Acoustic Pop
Hailing from Tampa, FL, and drawing inspiration from influences as disparate as The Band, Sufjan Stevens, Wilco and Ryan Adams, Matt became the first artist to sign with F-Stop Music, an imprint of Atlantic Records. As a cabinet store worker by day and a musician by night, Hires always had a passion for music. Matt’s father, also a musician, introduced him to music at a young age, giving him the handmade guitar that Matt continues to play. Initially drawn to the punk, post-hardcore, and emo scenes, Matt later developed an interest in artists like Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, which explains his unique vocal and instrumental harmonies that dabble in both traditional and contemporary musical genres.
September 28 • Nerdkween | Indie Rock, Folk, Experimental
Nerdkween is known for her lo-fi recordings and minimalist style of electric guitar playing with added electronic noises. She is also known for a wide range in vocal ability, from haunting and airy tones to gritty and country-like twangs. Her music is a part of the genre slowcore or dream pop. She is also one of the few African-American performers in experimental pop/rock music.
Also enjoy Concerts on the Square, on Saturday nights in September.
