Did someone say… free?
Nashville: some call it Music City; others refer to it as The City of Free Events. Here are 3 events happening this weekend that aren’t interested in ransacking your wallet:

The First Saturday Art Crawl, a festive event held downtown at Fifth Avenue of the Arts and the Historic Arcade, exhibits local as well as global artists’ work to the thousands that meander through the galleries. Oh, and there’s free refreshments.
Live on the Green
The Live on the Green concert series brings popular and local musicians together onto one stage to perform for the now 20,000-strong audience. Catch Augustana on Friday and Ingrid Michaelson on Saturday, as well as 8 others performing over the two days.
