[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Sleater-Kinney w/ Joseph Keckler | TONIGHT @ The Ryman Auditorium


Undoubtedly one of the most important punk bands of the last 25 years, Washington’s Sleater-Kinney, who returned in 2014 after a near decade-long split, released a comeback album the following year, and played their first Nashville show in ages, at Marathon Music Works, shortly thereafter, have in recent years settled into their status as both seminal, critical darlings and a band whose entire musical ethos and reason for being feels more relevant now than ever. Celebrating their new ninth album, the masterful, St. Vincent helmed The Center Won’t Hold, the group, now technically a duo with the recent abrupt departure of longtime drummer Janet Weiss, will return to Nashville tonight, Oct. 21, this time for a fitting upgrade to the legendary Ryman Auditorium along with eclectic artist Joseph Keckler! Obviously, seeing one of modern punk’s best and most important bands in one of music’s greatest venues is a once-in-a-lifetime, must-see opportunity, and we’d strongly suggest you snag tickets here while you can, then read on for more about the show!

[REMINDER] Catch Mike Watt & The Missingmen w/ Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre & Look What I Did | TONIGHT @ Exit/In


Legendary bassist and member of seminal and eclectic punk, alt rock, and indie outfits like Minutemen, Firehose, Dos, and countless others, Mike Watt has, for nearly 25 years, commanded a celebrated solo career as well, all the while collaborating with a laundry list of fellow alt rock and punk icons on various side projects, recordings, tours, and more (chief among them The Stooges). One of his most active and long-running backing bands has been dubbed The Missingmen, and that’s who’ll be backing Watt when he plays Nashville for the first time in years tonight, Oct. 20 at Exit/In, with support from genre-bending Memphis punks Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre and local proggy, heavy punk outfit Look What I Did! Any self-respecting fan of ’80s underground punk and post-hardcore will already know how essential this show is, but you can learn more about Watt and the rest of the lineup below, then grab tickets here while they last!

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Wilco w/ Soccer Mommy | TONIGHT @ Grand Ole Opry House


It’s only been three years since beloved Chicago alt rock outfit Wilco released their tenth LP, Schmilco, and only two since the group last toured, but given all of their individual activity since (and their prolific schedule in the years prior), it feels like much longer. Frontman Jeff Tweedy, particularly, has been incredibly active, releasing a memoir and pair of solo albums, and hitting the road in support, even passing through town earlier this year to play TPAC. As Tweedy’s activity winds down, Wilco have wound back up, and after a European tour this summer, the band are in the midst a fall trek of dates stateside, including a headlining stop tonight, Oct. 20 at the Grand Ole Opry House. The show marks Wilco’s first Nashville area appearance since the inaugural Pilgrimage Festival in 2015, and first headliner since a pair of Ryman dates the year prior, and comes just weeks after the release of their excellent new album Ode to Joy. Though, unsurprisingly, only a handful of tickets remain, you can still snag a seat of of writing right here, then read on for more about the show, which also features an exciting opening set from breakout local artist Soccer Mommy!
