Rising star Jason Isbell is coming to Carbondale to put on a free concert for the Live on Main series. Officials hope Isbell’s number one album “Something More Than Free” will breath new life into The Strip and bring the community together for a spectacular show.
Jason Isbell has been making significant headway in the music industry. His latest album which came out in July has been number one on Billboard’s Top Rock Album, Top Country Album, and Folk Album. His performance is an exciting part of the Live on Main series.
Live on Main is produced in part by the Carbondale Music Coalition in an effort to bring the venue The Strip out of it’s dark past and into a new age of music for Carbondale. City officials have been working tirelessly with live concerts, the Brown Bag lunch series, and more to strengthen Carbondale’s local music industry.
Isbell’s stop in Carbondale is part of his 2015 America tour which will stretch from New York to Texas, and even overseas. His music has been described as a mixture of rock, country, and folk. He has recently performed on Conan, and CBS This Morning Saturday Session, making a name for himself in mainstream media.
Jason Isbell will perform at this free concert with special guest Lydia Lovelace on October 9 at 6:00 p.m. in front of the Varsity Theater at 418 South Illinois Avenue.
