Weekend shows/Soundland’s initial lineup
July 8, 2011
Yesterday afternoon Soundland, Next Big Nashville’s new project, released their initial lineup. Like I said I’m not 100% sold on the name Soundland, but the lineup is looking better than ever. M. Ward, Justin Townes Earle, Ghostland Observatory, JEFF the Brotherhood, Dawes, Bonobo, PUJOL, Caitlin Rose, Chancellor Warhol, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Paper Route, and Jessica Lea Mayfield makeup the initial A-list. The super cheap early bird tickets sold out, but you can still get discounted advance tickets until the end of July. Don’t miss out on this one.
Now for this weekend’s rundown:
Sebastian Speaks Second Annual Fifth Anniversary Bash ft. KORT, The Tyler Family Band, D. Watusi + more @ VFW Post 1970. Local guitarist William Tyler (Lambchop, Silver Jews, Lifeboy, etc…) has been quietly running his Sebastian Speaks label for many years. But now the label is releasing the debut record from KORT, a new collaboration between Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner and the amazing Cortney Tidwell. So, this will be an amazing show. Albeit at an odd location…
The Old 97’s w/ Those Darlins and Robert Ellis @ Mercy Lounge (night 1 of 2). 9pm $20
The Protomen w/ The Non-Commissioned Officers @ 12th & Porter. 9pm $10 (Act I vinyl release show.)
The Old 97’s w/ Those Darlins and Robert Ellis @ Mercy Lounge (night 2 of 2). 9pm $20
Have a great weekend!
