Gibson Presents City Soundtracks
November 9, 2017 | 4:00 pm-November 10, 2017 | 7:00 pm PST
Why do some cities never sleep? The music is just too good. From underground venues to beer gardens and music halls to arena stages, some places rock out 24/7 with a style all their own. Jazz belongs to New Orleans. Nashville waves the country flag. Motown grooves in Detroit. Memphis has the blues. Seattle has grunge. In these musical meccas, the soundscape is more identifiable than the skyline and to celebrate the diverse sounds and legacies, Freedom Beat and Gibson have taken the musical reigns and are launching a new live music series: City Soundtracks Presented by Gibson.
Freedom Beat (Las Vegas’ home to the tastes and tunes of the American road) will celebrate the musical landscape with live music sessions featuring the sonic movements of a different city. The series begins with a two night event on November 9 – 10 and will put the focus on Seattle, where the grunge and alternative rock waves began on the amps of such legendary bands as Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and of course, Nirvana.
Curated by Patrick Genovese and Nick Mattera (of Strung Out Sessions) and featuring some of the best musicians in Las Vegas, City Soundtracks inaugural session will serve as an ode to the MTV Unplugged sessions from the 90’s. The live music event will host three main stage performers along with a slew of musical guest performers, each possessing a unique talent specific to Seattle’s featured artists, allowing for an unmistakably familiar cover of the best songs from each catalogue.
Thursday & Friday, November 9 & 10
7pm – 10pm
