Phox to Play Mercy Lounge Feb. 9

Phox-620

Wisconsin indie pop outfit Phox, who, just last weekend opened for The Head and the Heart at The Ryman, and who, if you follow this site regularly, you’ve likely seen us rave about countless times, have announced a headlining return to Music City in 2015, Feb. 9 at Mercy Lounge. Their poppy, folky, eclectic sound is simply mesmerizing, and their eponymous debut LP was, without a doubt, one of our favorite releases of the year. These guys have been amassing more and more buzz in recent months, so you’d be wise to snag your tickets when they go on sale tomorrow, Dec. 19, at 10 a.m. right here, or else risk missing out!

REVIEW: Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes | 12.13.14 @ The High Watt

DanielEllsworth-620

Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes
w/ BASECAMP, Buffalo Rodeo, and The Electric Sons
The High Watt; Nashville, TN
December 13, 2014

Review by Jake Lanier.

We caught December’s Red Bull Sound Select show featuring Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes with BASECAMP, Buffalo Rodeo, and The Electric Sons over the weekend at The High Watt. While we would have preferred to see this event happen in the larger space of Mercy Lounge, we were quite impressed with this SOLD OUT show, and could not wait to share our thoughts. Check out the review below, and keep a lookout for your next chance to catch DE&TGL in Nashville. We promise you will not be disappointed, and we strongly advise that you catch them soon – it will not be long before you’re going to have to shell out forty bucks to see them headline.

Catch New Madrid w/ Western Medication & The Wild Jays | TONIGHT @ The Stone Fox

NewMadrid-620

Christmas isn’t quite here yet, so there’s still time to get some rock ’n’ roll in before yuletide, fruitcakes, presents and family gatherings start dominating your time. We suggest you catch the Athens, GA formed, fully submerged psych rock sounds of New Madrid, local post-punksters Western Medication, and fellow resident grunge/psych rockers The Wild Jays … all playing TONIGHT at The Stone Fox. You get all this great tunage for just $8 at the door but you must be 18 + to enter. Be there when the doors open at 8 (show starts at 9 p.m.). Also, make sure you click on after the jump for more info on the bands, and a sample of their sounds.
