The weekend kicked off with "Warstic Presents the Business Man's Special", a round robin baseball game: the Texas Playboys vs. the Alabama Slammers (Billy Reid's company team) vs. the Third Man Triples with Jack White himself playing first base for the Third Man Triples.

CFDA award winner Pamela Love produced a shop-in-shop within the Billy Reid flagship store, located at 114 N. Court Street, which also featured art exhibitions by musician Alison Mosshart of The Kills and artist Jeremiah Ariaz.

Dawes headlined and debuted songs from their forthcoming new album "We're All Gonna Die" at the Shoals Theatre on Friday night and were accompanied by opening acts Joshua Hedley and Jonny Fritz. On Saturday night, John Paul White performed his new album "Beulah" accompanied by The Watson Twins.

And in an entirely new direction, Shindig No. 8 also featured the first ever Billy Reid Runway Show in Florence, AL with a live performance by Amanda Shires. This show was produced at the full scale of a NYFW show but aimed at sharing with their customers a real live runway experience featuring the  "in-season" collection and various limited edited pieces, all available for immediate purchase.

Billy cast the show by gathering a global collective of friends, customers, musicians and artists from places including New York, New Orleans, Israel, England, Korea, Atlanta, California, Nashville, Austin, Chicago, Charleston, Paris and Florence, Alabama. Actor Alex Sharp, musicians The Watson Twins, musician Charlie Mars, entertainment lawyer Jeff Colvin, Billy Reid Store Directors and more walked in the show. For Billy, he sees this diversity through a common lens of community.

Billy Reid believes this approach takes fashion directly to the customer and creates an aspirational experience, that will translate into meaningful sales and marketing initiatives. As Billy Reid moves into the next season, he plans to take the Shindig experience on the road to other markets including Chicago, Charleston and New Orleans. Billy Reid now has 13 stores in the US, in nine cities. Attached is the run of show.

Additional performances throughout the weekend included The Kernal, Charlie Mars, Tony Joe White, the Texas Gentlemen and Jerry Douglas Presents the Earls of Leicester. Incredible food from chefs John Besh, John Currrence, Jim N' Nick's, City House Nashville and beverages from Blackberry Farm Brewery, Good People Brewing and Eight Row Flint were enjoyed by all.
