– East Nashville is about to have a new venue: The East-Centric Pavillion “will serve as a multi-dimensional venue embracing the dynamism of art forms of East Nashville and the city itself, with a unique multitude of traditional and contemporary artistic flare. Kicking off with an eclectic music festival, events will range from seasonal and holiday events, concert series, a film festival, and events that celebrate local breweries, handcrafted libations, and Nashville’s own original cuisine.” As mentioned in the quote, the whole thing will kick off on 9.15 with a music festival – we will keep you updatde with more details as they are made available. The whole thing is part of the Shoppes on Fatherland, otherwise known as “that construction site next to the Vietnamese place.” Follow them on Facebook.
– Wild Nothing will be hitting Nashville on 9.28 at Exit/In, in support of their 8.28 release, Nocturne. Listen to their new song, “Shadow,” here. A press release says ” The album features some open references to past music just as Gemini did, but it’s also an album that feels much less rooted in anything in particular and, well, more adult. The obsessiveness of Nocturne is inherent in it’s gentle harmonies, orchestrated synths, wandering voice, and songs that speak of his post-Gemini experiences as he explores new paradoxes of pop.”
– Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds will play a free show at War Memorial Auditorium on 8.8.
– Happy birthday Infinity Cat! Celebrate with them this weekend.
– Tickets are on sale for Minus the Bear and Cursive, on 10.15 at Cannery.
