A Few Good Shows: 9/14/12

September 14, 2012

It’s a rock explosion, get it?

This weekend, specifically tonight, is a Nashville rock show explosion. Shit’s officially gettin’ crazy. But this is a good problem to have. I’d much rather be stressed about which awesome band or show to see, than be sad and depressed that no good tours are coming through town. Here are some shows that I’d see… now if I could only clone myself and see them all….


Built To Spill, Helvetia, Sister Crayon @ Exit/In. 9pm $20 (SOLD OUT)

Metric, w/ Half Moon Run @ The Ryman. 7:30pm $30

Makeup & Vanity Set, Sugar Sk*-*lls, Robocotopus, and Afrosaxon @ Richland Ballrom. (4208 Murphy Rd.) $3

Little Bandit EP release w/ Derek Hoke and Birdcloud @ The 5 Spot. 9pm $5 21+

The Biddies, Phil Hummer & The White Falcons, The Maloneys @ Zombie Shop. 8pm $???


Beach House and Dustin Wong @ Marathon Music Works. 8pm $22

Conestyle album release show w/ Yautja and No Christmas @ The End. 9pm $5

Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Lulu Mae, and Neulore @ Exit/In. 9pm $5


Turbo Fruits Big Shred/Album Release/party @ the Groove Records. 2pm/FREE. Their label Serpents & Snakes are throwing a big ass pig roast and party to celebrate the release of their album Butter. The band will play as well. More info on facebook.

Of course there’s the Americana Music Festival, which has been happening since Wednesday. My taste for what’s generally referred to as Americana is somewhat limited, so I’ve stopped short of posting all the various lineups and showcases here. Their website has the full listing and info on wristbands, etc… so please check it out if you’re interested in any of their offerings!

Have a great weekend!
