Catch Members of Mastodon, The E St. Band, Dillinger Escape Plan, & More | TONIGHT @ The Basement East for Jay Weinberg’s Buddies on the Beat Benefit!


If you’re looking for the most rock and roll for your buck, while supporting a great cause to boot, there’s no better place to be tonight, Oct. 16 than The Basement East, where accomplished drummer and Nashville resident Jay Weinberg will host a star-studded benefit concert called Buddies on the Beat. With 100% of proceeds set to benefit the Tennessee chapter of wonderful nonprofit Best Buddies, tickets are available in regular and VIP options here, and the event will also include a silent auction and raffle.

Currently a member of famed heavy metal outfit Slipknot, Weinberg, who’s the son of long-time Bruce Springsteen drummer (and former Conan bandleader) Max Weinberg, has previously drummed for Against Me!, Madball, and even The Boss himself. Tonight, he’ll host a killer evening of covers, featuring rotating players from some seriously talented and genre-spanning acts, including Troy Sanders of Mastodon, Max Weinberg and Garry Tallent of The E St. Band, Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Alicia Bognanno of Bully, Craig Smith of Nashville Predators, Pete Parada of The Offspring, Jack Gibson of Exodus, Steve Brodsky of Mutoid Man, Zakk Sandler of Falling In Reverse, Domenic Palermo of Nothing, Dane Poppin of Dashboard Confessional, Arun Bali of Saves The Day, Nico Santora of LILLAKE, Rafay Nabeel of WITHERED, Marcus Wanner of Slider, Leticia Wolf of The Dead Deads, Dakota Denman of Denman, and more.

The show will also include a special record release set from Friendship Commanders, and given the staggering amount of talent involved, we expect plenty more surprises. This would be an insanely cool, can’t-miss show under any circumstances, but given that it’s for a good cause, you won’t find a better night of music this evening. Head here for more details!

Buddies on the Beat will take place tonight, Oct. 16 at The Basement East. The show is 18+ (though minors are permitted with a guardian), begins at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $15-75.


Don’t Miss twenty one pilots w/ AWOLNATION & Max Frost | TONIGHT @ Bridgestone Arena


Few if any rock bands this decade have seen a rise as stunning and well-deserved as Columbus, Ohio alternative/indie/hip hop/punk/electro duo twenty one pilots, who, after a few years of regional and underground pop punk scene acclaim and constant touring, broke out in a major way with 2013 third LP and Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel. Their swift ascent since has been particularly apparent with their Nashville stops in recent years, selling out a string of successive dates, only to return to a significantly larger room each time: 12th and Porter in 2012 and ’13, Cannery Ballroom in 2013, Marathon Music Works in 2014, The Ryman in 2015, and Ascend Amphitheater the following year, and most recent stop in Nashville proper.

With 2015’s Blurryface, TOP furthered their mainstream, crossover appeal, earning their first Grammy and scoring a huge radio hit with non-album single “Heathens,” building on years of growing buzz and niche stardom to catapult them to becoming one of the biggest rock bands on the planet, and with brand new followup Trench, they continue to stay true to their weird, unique roots while honing their anthemic, pop-primed appeal. Returning to Nashville after two years, it should come as no surprise that the duo are set to headline Bridgestone Arena for the first time tonight, Oct. 16 with anthemic, electro/alternative outfit AWOLNATION and indie pop up and comer Max Frost. Previously sold out, a handful of tickets (including both cheaper upper level seats as well as GA floor seats as of writing) seem to have been released, and surely won’t last long; snag ’em here!

If you’ve never seen twenty one pilots live, or your only exposure is to their singles on the radio, we urge you to dive a little deeper and perhaps YouTube a few live videos, because their show is an engaging, unpredictable, electrifying rock and roll experience like no other, and one that has managed to surprise and elate us numerous times at all sizes of venue and festival stage. TOP are the real deal, and in a climate where rock has largely left the pop culture conversation, it’s encouraging to see them finding such huge, enthusiastic success; catch their biggest Music City show yet, and see what all the buzz is about!

twenty one pilots, AWOLNATION, and Max Frost will perform tonight, Oct. 16 at Bridgestone Arena. The show is all ages, begins at 7 p.m., and tickets are available to purchase for $34.70-79.50.

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss CHVRCHES w/ Lo Moon | TONIGHT @ The Ryman Auditorium


Out in support of their personal, adventurous recent third album Love Is Dead, Scottish synthpop trio CHVRCHES are set to return to Nashville for the first time in three years (and for only the third time ever), for their biggest local headliner yet, at the perfectly suited Ryman Auditorium tonight, Oct. 15, with buzzy LA indie pop up and comers Lo Moon. Prior shows at Exit/In and Marathon Music Works have been phenomenal, as have CHVRCHES’ regional festival appearances, but with a sound so lush and nuanced, especially their latest work, the Mother Church feels like the ultimate place to see the band’s incredible live show. This one’s been on sale for a minute, but a handful of tickets are still available right here, and we urge you not to miss out! Read on for more about the show.
