On the first Friday of each month, the streets of Downtown Knoxville come alive for a casual evening of experiencing ART in all forms. Exhibits vary from place to place each month, so they are updated the week before the event here →

Explore galleries, studios, and artist collectives; roam through shops hosting open houses and local artist exhibits; enjoy performance art and live music in the streets and at a variety of venues; drop in restaurants along the way and treat yourself to drinks and great food.

As you arrive downtown, look for ArtWalk flags to guide your way to events that are free and open to the public. Every month – year round – brings fresh new exhibits, performances, dining opportunities, and special events. The ArtWalk Trolley will also take you where you need to go - just hop on!

Watch & Listen: End Of The Line: A Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band  

When: Saturday, March 4th, Doors Open at 6pm

Where: Open Chord Stage / 8502 Kingston Pike, Knoxville 

End Of The Line is the premiere Allman Brothers Tribute Band. Having carved up the Southeast with Sold Out shows in Georgia and Tennessee, End Of The Line is making a name for themselves with a sound as classic and heavy as the original brother themselves. From the authentic, raspy vocal approach of Justin Smith to the chugging drum/percussion train of Chase Bader and Ryan McClanaha, the band both pays homage while pushing the boundaries of the timeless and extensive catalog. Carrying the electric weight of Duane Allman is Conor Kelly and his counterpart Dickey is Adam Gorman, who is the band's Lone Maconite. Last, but certainly not least, the low end duties are vastly covered by Casey Conway, who is a perfect bottom end sandwich of Berry, Allen, and Oteil. With endorsements from the official Allman Brothers Museum The Big House, End Of The Line carries on the legacy of the Allman Brothers with Poise and Power.

Come experience the soul, the guitarmony, the jam, and the ramblin' spirit that still lives on through each note hit.
