If you missed this show on Thursday night, you not only missed a chance to see three of the great rock ‘n roll bands of our day, but you also missed a chance to truly live the rock ‘n roll lifestyle. Switching your shift for the morning, or walking out early only to make enough money to buy your ticket and a couple brews at the show is worth every moment when bands like The Black Cadillacs, Avers, and J Roddy Walston & The Business are on the bill. We guaranteed you a great show and 20/20 hindsight says we underestimated how thrilling this was going to be. We understand living busy lives and trying to make ends meet. So if you could not make it, click below to get a glimpse.

Here Come The Mummies To Spook Up Marathon Music Works Halloween Bash


Rising from their crypts, and now back on tour; a one-of-a-kind, out of this world, super group, are planing a Music City stop. No, this post isn’t talking about the Rolling Stones, we’re talking about Here Come The Mummies announcing a show at Marathon Music Works on Halloween night! What surely started as a Halloween joke, or something goofy a group of musician friends did for kicks in the early ’00s, has proven to not just have legs, but kick fucking ass. A sometimes rotating line-up, of up to eleven musicians (none of which have ever been unmasked) blast mummified funk, rock and blues that is no laughing matter. We know they’re based in Nashville, possibly under contract studio musicians, who have to hide their identities to keep from the breaking the “rules,” but that’s about it. It’s also rumored that there are several grammy winners and possibly even a really high profile name or two, among the undead. Best part? You can download their entire catalog for free at their website.

We know it’s a long way out, but you better jump on this Marathon Music Works show for your Halloween hijinks, because we have a feeling it’s probably going to be one of the top bills in town. Explore HCTM more after the jump, and stay tuned to No Country for further details.
