Chattanooga’s music scene continues to grow and flourish with the opening of The Signal, the newest live music venue located in the Southside neighborhood.
It’s grand opening is Feb. 24, with a show featuring country grunge rock band, Lucero at 8:30 p.m..

“We were excited to enter the music community in Chattanooga,” said The Signal’s marketing manager, Jeremy Hicks. “We love the city and the culture that comes along with it and think touring artists can really strive in a city like Chattanooga.”
The Signal already has an extensive lineup planned through June with standout acts including R&B singer SoMo, singers of the hit songs “Unsteady” and “Renegades,” X Ambassadors and blues rocker Gary Clark Jr.
“I love that they are trying to get some more well-known artists,” said UTC freshman Madison Roberts from Memphis. “That makes me even more inclined to go to their shows and also sparks my interest in other things they have going on for sure.”
Music lovers of all kinds can expect to find a show for them playing at The Signal with its wide range of genres they have performing.
“We strive to book a pretty well-rounded group of artists and bands,” said Hicks. “Our shows include indie, pop, country, hip hop and others. We really are trying to cater to everyone and get all types of people out to the shows.”
