Mudbone at Riverfront Nights
I thought Riverfront Nights opening night headliner Muscadine Bloodline had the best name, but I think Mudbone takes the award. Mudbone is a singer/songwriter who “tells the story of American music one song at a time.” Hailing from Arkansas, he grew up with the musical legacy of gospel/bluegrass and blues. The zombie surf rock band Genki Genki Panic will open the show. As always, Riverfront Nights has “The Pup Tent” at “The Dog Pound” featuring a VIP area for your four-legged friends.

When: Saturday, Aug. 11., 8 p.m.
Where: 200 Riverfront Parkway
How much: Free
