Fishbone Coming, Riverfront Nights Winding Down
Riverfront Nights Summer Music Series is winding down with only two more concerts left! To celebrate returning college students, at 8 PM, this Saturday's headliner, Fishbone, will be providing energetic, upbeat entertainment you don't want to miss.
Still a relative secret in the worlds of Pop and Rock music, Fishbone has released numerous innovative, clever, genre-bending, cult-classic albums like 'Fishbone', 'Truth and Soul', 'The Reality of My Surroundings' and 'Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx'. Fishbone lives up to their legend as "the" group to bridge the gap between the funk of George Clinton and the blare of Rush. The classic, original Godfathers of Black Punk/Ska Funk, whose sound helped invent the "Red Hot Chili Peppers" are a perfect soundtrack to welcome home area college students.
Starting off the night at 7 PM, Opposite Box will offer a whirlwind of genre-shifting excitement and mind-bending confusion landing somewhere between the eclecticism of Mr. Bungle and the improvisational styling of The Secret Chiefs 3 and The Mars Volta.These guys harness the power of the "blaxaphone and 'bone combo" to put the smack down on all.
Saturday's "On the Green" event is Bike Night.
All shows are child and pet friendly. Beer sales begin at 6:30 PM. Local opening bands start around 7 and headliners kick into high gear promptly at 8 PM, playing until 10-ish.
Eco-Friendly Businesses & Charities gather at the "green|spaces" tent. This week will spotlight Land Trust for Tennessee.
The 'Dog Pound' under the Pup Tent will feature East Tennessee Alliance for Animals.

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN'S WILL
NEW YORK (AP) -- Philip Seymour Hoffman had said he didn't want his children to be "trust fund kids." And his accountant says that's why the actor turned aside the suggestion that he set up a trust fund for his three children. The New York Post says a court-appointed lawyer for the children interviewed the accountant for the actor, who died earlier this year of a drug overdose. The accountant says Hoffman wanted his fortune, estimated at $35 million, to go to his longtime partner and the children's mom, Mimi O'Donnell.
"TYRANT" PRODUCTION MOVED FROM TEL AVIV
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The current unrest in the Middle East has caused production of the FX's series "Tyrant" to pull up stakes. The show had been shot in Tel Aviv. But producer Howard Gordon says the show has since moved to Istanbul to resume production. Gordon tells a TV critics panel in California that when Tel Aviv began drawing missile fire, "people were running into bomb shelters." And he says while people on the set didn't feel "physically threatened," the atmosphere "was not conducive to shooting." The last two episodes of the show's first season will be shot in Turkey.
FORMER "50 SHADES" ACTOR AWAITS RESULTS
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The actor who had the original lead for the movie version of "Fifty Shades of Grey" says he still believes in the film, even though he won't be in it. Charlie Hunnam says he's "really excited" to see the movie and is "really, really curious" to see how it turned out. Hunnam dropped out of the "Grey" project a month after he landed the role. He says he believes his replacement, Jamie Dornan, is "probably a lot better looking and a lot smoother" than he is. Though Hunnam says he wouldn't mind having his audition tape be part of a DVD extra for fans of the movie. The movie is due out next Valentine's Day.
