Great news for Michael Franti and Spearhead-heads and fans who missed Local Natives or Matt and Kim at Bonnaroo this month — those are your Live on the Green 2013 headliners. Joining them on Lightning 100’s annual end-of-summer-early-fall free-for-all — with shows every Thursday from Aug. 8 through Sept. 12 at Downtown’s Public Square Park — is a mix of national acts and local notables, including Matt Nathanson, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Moon Taxi, ZZ Ward, The Weeks, The Delta Saints, Leagues, Gin Wigmore, Erin McCarley, the Wild Feathers, Joe Robinson, Luella and the Sun, Lulu Mae and more TBA. Expect an update on additional artists and performance schedules July 5, FYI. And speaking of acronyms, those interested in purchasing VIP passes to the free event can, starting July 5, get their spendthrift on over at LOTG’s official site.
