Free Music for the Weekend

The 2nd Annual Community Rock N Ride starts this Friday (1/30) at 5:30 p.m. in the Plaza of the Americas on the University of Florida campus. Ride your bike with hundreds of others as part of Gainesville’s monthly Critical Mass, and then pull into the Kickstand — a free, communal bicycle project — to listen to Gainesville favorites like Umoja Orchestra and the Damsels at 7:30. There is a $5 admission to the concert, but you can pay your way in books and magazines ($1 per book) that will go to the Gainesville charity Books to Prisoners. Best of all, there’s also going to be free vegan food!

Other free music happening around town:

Josh Feinberg plays Indian classical music on the sitar at the UF Health Professions Nursing & Pharmacy Auditorium (101 Newell Drive) at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Totally free!

Tim and Terry’s offers live bluegrass, electric and acoustic guitar and pick-up jam sessions every night without a cover charge. On the weekends, local artists experiment together at the house-turned-club-and-music-store.

Tammy Murray, a native Gainesville banjo player, plays at the Buddha Belly (NW 16th Ave) on Saturday from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Ms. Murray plays old-time banjo, mandolin, harp and dozens of other instruments. Her motto: “A woman just can’t have too many shoes or banjos.”
