Nightfall continues its 15-week free outdoor concert series at Miller Plaza on Friday with an 8 p.m. show by Wildermiss, a Denver-based indie rock band featuring vocalist and bassist Emma Cole, guitarist Joshua Hester and Caleb Thoemke at battery.
Reviews of Wildermiss:
Formed in 2016, Wildermiss worked hard to make a name for themselves in their hometown of Denver, first playing every gig they could land, and eventually selling out the best venues, touring in 2018 opening for Oh Hellos. and appearing on “Last Call with Carson Daly”. “When the pandemic hit, they did 10-minute door-to-door concerts for $50 per stop to keep the music going. The band are currently working on the follow-up to their quarantine singles “Supermagical” and “Italy” and are touring nonstop across the country this summer. This Friday’s performance at Nightfall will be their first opportunity to share their melodic pop rock with a live Chattanooga audience.
Opening the show at 7 p.m. is local band Shiggy, comprising an assortment of talented musicians who gathered in a Chattanooga basement during the pandemic to follow Matt Shigekawa’s musical vision. From Vivaldi to Radiohead, from Motown to The Meters, Shiggy has put all the influences on the table to bring an experience with one goal in mind: to leave this experience feeling better than before arriving here.
In addition to music on the Miller Plaza stage, other special features at Nightfall this Friday include roller skate rentals by the Moonlight Rollers, a video game truck, local food trucks, local artisan street vendors and Chattanooga Football Club’s inflatable soccer field at Miller Park. .
