No Country Presents: Waterfall Wash, The Narrative, & Kayleigh Goldsworthy | Nov. 8 @ Acme Feed & Seed

No Country Acme-620

No matter where you fall on the political (or rationality) spectrum, Nov. 8 promises to be a day of dread, worry, and uncertainty. Even on a normal year, Election Day can be especially contentious, but this election in particular has been one of the most divisive, frightening, and bizarre in U.S. history. While we all wait for what we hope is a peaceful transition of power, we’ll definitely need something to distract and alleviate the stress, and, luckily, our next Acme Feed & Seed showcase happens to fall on the very same Tuesday. The latest installment in our long-running series, a trio of stellar local artists promise to entertain and delight, and will help you find refuge from political turmoil, if only for few hours.

Longtime friends of the site, local rockers Waterfall Wash head up the bill, rounded out by indie pop/rock duo The Narrative, and folk/pop singer-songwriter Kayleigh Goldsworthy. For the usual price of free, and beginning at 7 p.m., this is one of our favorite Acme lineups all year; read on for more on why you don’t want to miss it!

There’s really no better place to be than The Ryman Auditorium on a Friday night during the fall, so seeing Local Natives recently immediately became the highlight of my show calendar for 2016. After a pretty significant gap in touring, due to recording their album Sunlit Youth, they finally released the album and made it back to Nashville to an almost sold out crowd, and we were among the lucky audience. Read on for a full review and stunning photos from Shayne Garcia!

If you’re a regular reader, then we surely don’t have to tell you how fantastic JEFF are, or stress their importance to the local scene, but we still jump at a chance to see them live any time we can, especially when they’re bringing their talents to the east side. Tickets are still available right here, and we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan, so read on for more about the show and enter below!

Don’t Miss Josh Rouse w/ Good Buddy | TONIGHT at The Basement East


It’s now been over a decade since Josh Rouse left Nashville to live in a small coastal town in Spain, but you can still hear plenty of the Music City’s influence on last year’s The Embers of Time, part of which was recorded in Music City. Tonight, Oct. 27 Rouse will be back in Nashville, at The Basement East, as part of the Communion music series, along with Good Buddy. Tickets for the 21+ show are still available here, doors open at 8 p.m., and music starts at 9 p.m. Read on for more about the performers!

Bully Announce Last Minute Show TONIGHT at Drkmttr!


Before they ship off tomorrow for yet another run of tour dates, breakout local grunge pop group Bully have announced a last minute performance tonight, Oct. 27 at DIY all ages arts collective Drkmttr (which recently relocated to The Nations). Still reeling from the buzz surrounding last year’s debut LP, Feels Like, Bully have swiftly and deservedly become one of the most celebrated bands to emerge from Nashville in recent years, and have had a seemingly endless touring schedule since their record’s release. Though the group have made appearances at events like Freakin’ Weekend, Live on the Green, and Bonnaroo, and even headlined The Basement East this year, it’s been a minute since Bully last played a hometown show in a spot as small as Drkmttr. Space is obviously limited (capacity is about 100), so we’d suggest being there when doors open at 8 p.m. The show is slated to kick off at 9 p.m., and Shell of a Shell and Husband Stitch are also on the bill. There’s no better way to experience Bully than a sweaty, tiny room; trust us.
