Jason Isbell played MidPoint Music Festival's Indie Summer Series on June 18th

MidPoint Music Festival doesn’t take place till September 23-25.  However, fans of the MidPoint Music Festival have the opportunity to see some of the bands that will be featured at this year’s event by coming down to Fountain Square on 14 different Friday nights.  The nice aspect of the MPMF Indie Summer Series is that they are completely free to the public. In addition, attendees are able to purchased discounted tickets to the MidPoint Music Festival happening in September.  This past Friday June 18th the Indie Summer Series featured one of last years favorites, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit from Greenhill, Alabama.  Before forming this band, Jason Isbell was an integral member of the Athens Georgia band The Drive By Truckers.  After writing, recording and performing with the band from 2001-2007, Jason Isbell and The Drive By Truckers amicably split.  Jason then went on to record his solo album titled Sirens of the Ditch in 2007.  Shortly thereafter in 2009 Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit recorded and released their self titled album on the Lightning Rod Records label.  Jason brought his band to MidPoint’s Indie Summer Series on Friday June 18th to a packed fountain square.  We offer a brief look into this great band.
