There is only one show left in the 2018 season of Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive, and it features the winner of the Gimme the Gig contest! So dust off your boogie shoes and join the fun.
The season continues every Thursday night through August 30. More than 45,000 people attend this event annually. The event serves as the single largest fundraiser for the Metropolitan Arts Council. Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive opens at 5:30 pm and closes at 8:30 pm.
The Thursday, August 30 show features the winning act of the Gimme the Gig contest! The annual contest gives local musicians a chance to win a paid gig at Downtown Alive as well as studio time at Sit-N-Spin Recording Studios. This year’s winner is Kami Ocean & the Rhythm, a seven-piece Upstate soul, blues, and jazz band. The band will perform at Downtown Alive on Thursday evening starting at 5:30 pm.
