Football Friday kicks off in Downtown Bryan on September 11, with a free concert at the Palace Theater at 8pm, featuring Hard Proof, an Austin band known for adventurous jazz and deep funk with sounds from sub-Saharan Africa.
Football Fridays feature a free concert each Friday night before a Texas A&M home football game weekend, giving fans a chance to enjoy Historic Downtown Bryan shopping and dining before heading to campus.
“These Friday night concerts are a fun way to start the weekend in Aggieland,” says Amanda Reynolds, programs and events manager for the Downtown Bryan Association, which is coordinating the concerts. “We encourage folks to come downtown for the concert before heading to Midnight Yell or tailgating activities,” Reynolds says.
Gates open at 7:30pm. The concert begins at 8pm.
Fans are also encouraged to return to Downtown Bryan for a free gameday shuttle on Saturday, September 12. Pickup/dropoff is on Regent St. between the Clara B. Mounce Library and the Roy G. Kelly Parking Garage.
