Dawes To Play The Basement East on Sept. 22 in Celebration of New LP

dawes

Following a fantastic headlining performance at Live On The Green last week, Nashville’s favorite California band, Dawes, have announced a record release show at The Basement East on Sept. 22nd. We’re All Gonna Die officially releases on Sept. 16, and you’ll need to pre-order the record at Grimey’s to gain entry to the show.  Each record purchased will receive one wrist band to the show, while supplies last.

The band announced the record earlier this month and gave their fans a new single, “When The Tequila Runs Out,” to mark the occasion. The track is an infectious blend of their smooth americana influences with a dash of pop and electronic textures that are especially found in Wylie Gelber’s synthesizer like bass riff. The song is completed with a hook that everyone can get behind, “When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne.” Dawes released a music video with the song complete with slow motion antics and plenty of alcohol. You can check out the video below, and make sure to go to Grimey’s and secure your wristband before this awesome opportunity sells out!

Watch MYZICA Cover The Cars’ “Drive” on Acme Radio Ahead of Aug. 30 Rooftop Release Show

myzica-2016-620

Stoked for MYZICA‘s rooftop record release party tomorrow night, Aug. 30 at Acme Feed & Seed, presented by yours truly and our pals at Acme Radio? Yep, us too.

We already told you all about the FREE event in detail right here, but if you still need any last minute motivation, you should check out the duo’s fantastic new cover of The Cars’ classic “Drive.” Released as a single last week, MYZICA also stopped by Acme Radio’s studio to perform the tune live, and you can watch that performance (and listen to the studio version) below! We’ve also included the music video for the original, in case you want a very meta peek into an ’80s-inspired band’s unique take on a classic ’80s tune, keeping their retro flair but still managing to modernize and transform it to fit their own sound.

Watch and listen to “Drive” below, see MYZICA in person tomorrow, and keep an eye out for debut full-length, Love & Desire, set to drop Sept. 9!

Returning to town just months after selling out Exit/In, for their first Music City show since the summer release of their fantastic fifth album Ash & Ice, The Kills, who at least partially claim Nashville as their home these days, will be back in town next month, Sept. 14 for a performance at Marathon Music Works with Kim and the Created. One of our favorite live bands around, The Kills roared back to life after a few years of stagnation to craft perhaps their best album yet, and there’s never been a better time to witness their unparalleled rock and roll energy in person. You can still grab tickets right here while they last, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Read on for more about the show and enter below!

Daphne Willis Reimagines The Beatles With Covers EP

Daphne Willis-620

We’ve been following talented genre hopping singer-songwriter Daphne Willis for a few years now, and, with each new release that we get, we wonder what avenue the talented songstress will be taking us down.  You may remember the rocking duet that she dropped with Sonia Leigh that we premiered earlier this year, and that was a bit of a departure from her previous pop, hip hop, and EDM releases that she has been recording for the past 10 years.  Now, Willis has offered up her vision of The Beatles with a new covers EP titled Come Together, featuring lovely renditions of “Eleanor Rigby,” “Come Together,” “Something,” “Two Of Us,” and “All You Need Is Love.”  Head below to listen for yourself.
