Streets of Loredo - 620

Just like last year and the year before, we’re making it our mission to help you get acquainted with as many bands as we can from Bonnaroo‘s impressive 2014 lineup. In addition to main stage acts, we also want to be sure to give the Club Stage bands some love, so, for the next month or so, we’re adding a second daily spotlight. They might be the smallest artists on Bonnaroo’s bill, but the Club Stage bands are some of the best and most exciting up and coming acts around. As with our main stage previews, we’ll start from the bottom and work our way up. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Club Stage Band of the Day

[Giveaway] Enter To Win Weekend Passes to the Forecastle Music Festival!

Forecastle 2014-620

We’ve been gushing with excitement for Louisville’s Forecastle Festival to pretty much everyone we know, because we think it is potentially the best summer festival lineup around for 2014.  The headliners for this one will keep even the hardened festival goer ready to roll with the likes of Outkast, Jack White, and Beck.  But, equally impressive are the undercard lineup for this rumble under the freeway!  You get to jam with Spoon, Band Of Horses, and, wait for it….. The Replacements!  Yo, guess what old schooler, we’re also talking about a reunion of Louisville post rockers Slint! As you continue down the bill, you’ll dig on everything from Gary Clark, Jr, Local Natives, The Black Lips, and Jason Isbell.  Roll further down to catch acts like Waxahatchee, Mount Moriah, Reignwolf, and Sun Kil Moon.  If that doesn’t do it for you Nashvillian’s, we also have a ton of Music City talent including: Leagues, Drew Holcombe & The Neighbors, The Weeks, The Wans, Willie Watson, & more….

We can talk all we want, but let’s face it… you want to go… you just need a little encouragement to push you over the edge.  So, we’re going to give a pair of weekend passes to one of you out there.  So start thinking about which friend you will pay you the most karma points, and enter to win below.  If you need even more inspiration, take a look at that screen shot of the line-up below!

Nashville 2014 Record Store Day Releases

Record Store Day 2014

Record Store Day is upon us. The annual (er, bi-annual, if you count RSD Black Friday) event takes place tomorrow, April 19, and it’s primed to be another great year. Like anything music-related, Nashville goes all-out for the independent store celebration and, in addition to the many great (and free) performances happening around town, which we already told you about, we wanted to point you to some local and local(ish) releases to keep an eye out for. We’re almost certainly missing a few and, keep in mind, for every official RSD-sponsered release, there’s a band or two getting in on the fun on their own at the local level, so keep an eye on on your favorite artists’ sites for the scoop on special releases, sales, and more. We’ve also got a list of locations for you. If you’re new to Record Store Day, bear in mind that not every release will be available in every shop, so choose wisely!
