Last May, music fans packed Wolf Creek Amphitheater in the city of South Fulton to see Goodie Mob at Funk Fest. This month, they’ll have a chance to see the iconic group in East Point for free.
Goodie Mob’s four members – Big Gipp, Khujo, Cee-Lo and T-Mo – will perform at “Wednesday Wind Down In The Point.” It will take place on Wednesday, July 24 from 5-9 p.m. in the Downtown Commons, located at 2757 East Point Street.
Also performing are national recording artists Kilo Ali, Dana Dane, Cherrelle and Jukebox, featuring Quinn who is a former member of the national R & B group Blackstreet. “Wednesday Wind Down In The Point” will be hosted by V-103’s Greg Street and WAOK’s Derrick Boazman. Both radio personalities will be broadcasting live from the event.
This is the second year for Wednesday Wind Down In The Point, which is a free summer concert series, featuring national and local bands, held on the fourth Wednesday of the month during May through August.
A variety of food trucks along with the East Point Farmers Market, which often features city of South Fulton farmers and vendors, will be onsite. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their blankets and chairs. Tents, smoking, outside food/beverage, or pets will not be allowed.
Concertgoers are encouraged to use MARTA to get to the event across from the East Point MARTA Train Station (2848 East Main St). Additional parking will be available at East Point’s Customer Care facility (2791 East Point Street), East Point’s Grady Health Center (1595 W Cleveland Ave), the gravel parking lot on W. Cleveland Avenue next to the Grady Health Center and the Wagon Works parking lot (1514 Cleveland Avenue).
