East Point relaunches ‘Wednesday Wind Down in the Point’

The city of East Point returns with its popular outdoor summer concert series known as “Wednesday Wind Down in the Point.” Presented by AT&T and Dihvinely Konnected Productions, this year’s kick-off event is set for 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 in the Downtown Commons, 2757 East Point Street, according to a press release.

Admission is free.

The headliners include national R&B recording artists Jon B, Montell Jordan and Cherrelle who will perform their greatest hits and the Soul Cartel, an Atlanta-based band. The Wednesday Wind Down hosts will be V-103’s Ramona Debreaux and WAOK’s Derrick Boazman.

The city of East Point will select one local artist or band from hundreds of entries that will share the same stage as the national recording artists in an effort to gain exposure for their musical talents.

“Wednesday Wind Down in the Point” is an economic development initiative of Councilmember Sharon Shropshire to gain exposure to East Point’s thriving downtown with the goal of attracting new businesses, residents and visitors to the city.

“It also serves as a platform for existing residents to socialize with neighbors, relax and enjoy a free summer concert with great music and food,” said Shropshire.

A variety of food trucks along with the East Point Farmers Market will be onsite.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs. Tents, outside food/beverage nor pets will not be allowed.

Future “Wednesday Wind Down in the Point” concerts are set for June 26, July 24 and Aug. 28.
