The Hotel Van Zandt, opening soon in the Rainey Street District, is offering a glimpse into its live music program with a special free showcase at the Blackheart bar nearby.

The concert will display the musical talents of three artists in residence: Julian Acosta, Benjamin Cina and KP & the Boom Boom. They are the sort of acts you’ll hear at the hotel’s restaurant Geraldine’s once both are open for business.

Details: 8:30 p.m. Friday. Free. 86 Rainey St.
