This year’s Amplify Decatur Music Festival Concert Series launches this evening with a free show on the Decatur Square featuring folk-rock band Ghoststories and Tumbling Dice: The Ultimate Tribute to The Rolling Stones. Led by Mick Jagger tribute artist Stephen Skipper, the Stones sets promise to include the band’s biggest hits — and the lead singer’s most iconic stage moves.
The main Amplify Decatur Music Festival begins at 2:00 p.m. Saturday on the square, and features a star-packed lineup including St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, James McMurtry, and The Suffers. Tickets are $75 for general admission. Finally, the event wraps up Sunday night with what organizers are calling Amplify Vs.: Elliott Smith. Happening at Waller’s Coffee Shop in Decatur, the event will feature local acts performing songs from Smith’s acclaimed discography. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. and admission is $10. As in past years, proceeds from the Amplify Decatur Music Festival series will go straight back into the community through Decatur Cooperative Ministry, Decatur Education Foundation, and Giving Kitchen; organizers say last year’s festival raised $50,000 for Decatur Cooperative Ministry.
