Catch a free show on the 1000 block of Broadway in downtown Columbus tonight. The Taste of the Bash concert is 7:30-10:30 p.m. and includes opening act Carson Hand, as well as the Original Soul Proprietors.
The Original Soul Proprietors, a local act, gained a following in the ’60s and ’70s. Some band members still live in the Columbus-Phenix City area.
The show is a prelude to Saturday’s 2nd Annual Band Bash at the Columbus Convention & Trade Center, a benefit for the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.
Keep your lawn chair handy after Friday’s show. The fall outdoor concerts downtown kick off Sept. 17 with a performance by Big Woody and the Splinters.
The free shows will happen 7-10 p.m. every Friday through Oct. 8. Other musical acts are The Relics, Whisky Bent and Peggy Jenkins and the Bizness.
