TWiN | This Weekend in Nashville | August 26-28

TWiN - Plan Left

Summer is sweltering on, but we are also approaching the beginning of fall record release season.  We have a few local noteworthy releases that are celebrating with shows this weekend around town. We also have a music festival taking over several venues around town that is of definite note to us, along with a farewell show from one of our favorite local bands of the last few years.  Head below to find out more about those happenings, along with the rest of our staff picks in this week’s edition of TWiN.

Your Weekend Plans Are Here

No Country Presents: MYZICA | Tuesday, Aug. 30 @ Acme Feed & Seed

myzica-2016-620

You know our Tuesday night show series at Acme Feed & Seed, now a roughly bi-weekly affair in conjunction with our friends at Acme Radio, as a long-running outlet where we frequently showcase our favorite up and coming local acts as well as burgeoning national artists. While generally hosted on the venue’s first floor, we have, on a few special occasions, moved the music upstairs, to bring you an unparalleled rooftop party of fourth floor, outdoor tunes. Next week, on Tuesday, Aug. 30, we’re thrilled to invite local indie pop duo MYZICA to the roof, where they’ll celebrate the impending release of their highly-anticipated debut full-length, Love & Desire. One of Nashville’s most exciting and buzzworthy new acts, MYZICA are a name you’re going to be hearing a lot more of in the near future, and you seriously don’t want to miss this FREE, unique chance to see them in person. Per usual, the show is 21+, and doors are at 7 p.m., with an opening DJ set. You’re encouraged to RSVP here, but that doesn’t guarantee admission, and capacity is limited. Read on for more about MYZICA and preview their sound below!

Leagues To Play 3rd & Lindsley on Sept. 18 in Support of New LP

Leagues-2016-620

We’ve been on the trail of the new music from Nashville alt-pop outfit Leagues since they announced their upcoming sophomore LP, Alone Together, which is set to drop via Dualtone on Sept. 9.  We got our first taste of the new record with their first single “Dance With Me,” and followed that up with a premiere of their instantly catchy, infinitely danceable single “Lipstick Coffee.”  In the weeks since, the band has teased us with a couple more new singles, “Slow And Steady” and “New Money,” both of which you can check out below.

While you are getting totally hooked by some of the best pop that this city has to offer, mark you calendar for Sept. 18, when the band is set to take over Nashville Sunday Night at 3rd and Lindsley.  The show is all ages, starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are currently on sale here for only $10.

Catch Birds in the Airport, Oliver Ocean, & BRUNS | TONIGHT @ The East Room

Birds In The Airport @ Acme Feed & Seed - 7.26.16 // photo by Nolan Knight

We strive to keep you informed on chances to catch our favorite local artists, and doubly so when  some of them happen to be alumni of our Acme showcase series, so we couldn’t help but notice this great lineup featuring the orchestral sounds of Birds in the Airport, indie leaning Oliver Ocean, and straight up rockers BRUNS. We’ been lucky enough to host the Birds (this post) and BRUNS (this post) before, so we know they kick ass, and based on what we’ve heard from Oliver Ocean, it’s going to be a great night of music at The East Room. The tunes for this this 21+ affair start at 8 p.m., and tickets are just $5 at the door, so price isn’t an excuse for not going out and supporting our local scene. Read on for more about the performers, and be sure to make the most of your Thursday night.
