Foundation Free Fridays Return to Tiptina's


by Brad Rhines

If you can’t bear the thought of heading to the West Bank for Wednesdays at the Point, Tipitina’s offers an Uptown solution for your free summer music needs. This week Tip’s announced the line-up for their Foundation Free Fridays concert series, sponsored by the Tipitina’s Foundation. The shows take place June 8 through July 27, lasting just long enough to get you through the dog days.
