A Few Good Shows: 5/24/13

May 24, 2013

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

There’s not shortage of good shows to check out this weekend, but before we get to the listings I have a few noteworthy local music tidbits to mention-

  • Creature Comfort are a talented new local band I’ve had the pleasure of playing shows with, and they’ve just released their debut album Fox Tales, which can be purchased digitally on bandcamp. Stream it here!
  • My band Scale Model just released a 2-song remix EP for “Do It Tonight” off our 2012 S/T EP. The remixes were done by Makeup & Vanity Set and The Leech Boyz. It’s totally free for download on our bandcamp page, so stream it and grab it! While you’re at it, also check out our limited edition tshirts designed by Funky Catsterz.

My picks for what shows to see this Memorial Day weekend in Nashville-

FRIDAY:

Night Beds, Good Buddy, and Tristen @ Mercy Lounge. 9pm $10

Nashville Pioneers pep rally part 2 ft. DJs Coach and La Force @ the Stone Fox. 9pm $5

SATURDAY:

(Flier pictured above!) Take the Power Back (all-girl Rage Against the Machine tribute), Gladiator (Jesus Lizard tribute), and Cio Cio San & The Half-Japanese Girls (Weezer tribute) @ Exit/In. 8pm $10 (Limited run of $5 presale tix may still be available at The Groove!) *There will be a very special guest performer at this show, and people will be talking about it for years, but you’ll just have to come to find out who it is!*

No Country For New Nashville 2-year anniversary party ft. Colorfeels, EL EL, and Beck’s Song Reader performed by Daniel Ellsworth, members of Milktooth, and more @ The Basement. 9pm $7 21+

Josephine Foster, The Cherry Blossoms, and Honey Locust @ The Stone Fox. 9pm $7

Those Darlins, Gills, Magnolia Sons, Vespers, Stagolee, Cooper & The Jam @ Eastside Hootenanny at East Park. 4-10pm Proceeds go to benefit Urban Green Lab. More info on East Side Hootenanny website.

You’d think there would more good shows Sunday night given the long weekend, but I couldn’t find anything I’m particularly thrilled about. Have a great weekend!
