[TICKET GIVEAWAY] The Faint w/ Gang of Four & Pictureplane | Oct. 10 @ Mercy Lounge

TheFaint-620

One of our most-anticipated package tours of the fall, beloved Omaha dance punk/new wave group The Faint return to Nashville for the first time in four years Oct. 10 at Mercy Lounge in support of their new career retrospective, CAPSULE:1999-2016, and they’re bringing along post-punk legends Gang of Four (what’s left of ’em in anyway), who are celebrating a new live album. Groups of monumental influence in two different eras of two different, but complimentary sounds, this pairing is all at once weird and exciting, and with opener Pictureplane, it’s likely to be not just one of the fall’s best shows, but one of the best of the whole year. You can still grab tickets right here, or, if you’re feeling lucky, we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader! Enter for a chance to win and find out more about the lineup below!

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Elvis Costello w/ Larkin Poe | Oct. 17 @ Ryman Auditorium

elviscostello-620

Legendary songwriter, performer, producer and musical trailblazer Elvis Costello is returning to The Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 17 for a night of incredible music from throughout his illustrious career. Dubbed the “Detour,” this solo run is a sort of an extended musical book tour in support of Costello’s recent memoir, Unfinished Music & Disappearing Ink, and marks his third Music City outing in just as many years. This stop, in particular, is extra special though, because New Orleans’ own Preservation Hall Jazz Band have been tapped to provide accompaniment, making Elvis’s performance a lot less “solo” than any other Detour stop, and adding an extra special element just for the Nashville crowd. Soulful and rootsy rockers Larkin Poe have also been tapped to open, and you can still snag tickets for this one of a kind show right here. We’re also excited to announce that we’re giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets on us, so read on for more info on the show and enter for your chance to win below!

Watch Anthony Bourdain Cook, Party with The Dead Weather in Clip from Upcoming ‘Parts Unknown’

PartsUnknown_NashvilleScreenshot-620

Back in the spring, we heard about continued sightings of acclaimed chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain, apparently in town to film an episode of his popular CNN show Parts Unknown, where he explores lesser known establishments, cuisine, and culture of cities around the world. This Sunday, the Nashville episode is finally set to air, and ahead of its release, CNN has debuted a few teaser clips. In one, Bourdain visits downtown meat and three Dandgure’s with famed musician and music industry figure Jesse Boyce. In another, he drops by Patterson House and the Catbird Seat to discuss new Nashville with restauranteur Josh Habiger.

The clip that really caught our eye, however, is one where Bourdain lets loose at local rocker Alison Mosshart’s Nashville home, nicknamed “Disgraceland,” making snacks alongside her chef brother Matthew, for an epic house party featuring a living room performance from Mosshart’s band The Dead Weather, attended by various local musicians and Third Man entourage. Check it out below!

Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown airs Sunday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. CDT on CNN. Other spots Anthony was spotted at include Husk (chef Sean Brock, a close friend of Bourbain’s, is also said to have served as his guide for other stops), Dino’s, Pinewood Social, The Crying Wolf, Edgefield, Duke’s, City House, and the home of pitmaster Patrick Martin (Martin’s Bar-B-Que), encountering guests like Margo Price, Ben Swank, and William Tyler. What may or may not make it to air is anyone’s guess, but you can tune in Sunday to find out!
