Dashboard Confessional to Play Solo Midnight Acoustic Show | TONIGHT @ The Basement

dashboardconfessional-620

In the midst of an amazing, week-long, sold out, five show residency at The Basement East, something of a homecoming  for now-local rockers Dashboard Confessional, the group have just announced a solo, acoustic performance tonight, Feb. 26 at midnight (as in Sunday evening into Monday) at The Basement (the original one on 8th). The BEast shows were already a fantastic way to see the beloved emo/alt rock outfit up close and personal, but in the even smaller Basement, you’ll have a chance to watch frontman Chris Carrabba is what is surely one of the smallest spaces he’s performed under the Dashboard moniker in years.

Tickets are available now right here, and once the word gets out, they won’t last long- here’s why you seriously don’t want to miss it.

Catch Skyway Man’s Vinyl Release | TONIGHT @ Little Harpeth Brewing

skyway-man-620

It’s been nearly four months since we got our first taste of James Wallace’s new Skyway Man project.  We started off with the first course of the future folk single “Terre, 9999,” which really set the table for the upcoming LP Seen Comin’ From A Mighty Eye.  In the months since, we’ve watched Skyway Man a badass debut video, saw a Pink House Session performance, and they even stopped in at our latest Christmas Caroling Party.

There have been a few warm up shows to push the new record of late, with appearances at Grimeys, Third Man, and Mercy Lounge, but the official vinyl release party takes place this tonight, Feb. 24 at Little Harpeth Brewing.  Skyway Man will be joined by Jasmine Kaset Band (whom you may know from Birdcloud), Paperhead, and Kneel Jung.  Special guests include William Tyler, Kyshona Armstrong, and more, and there will be visual projections by Mike Kluge.  Tickets are available for $8, or you can splash out $30 for VIP here, which includes the double vinyl and two “premium draft beers.”
