You’ve probably heard by now that there is a new mid-sized music venue opening in Nashville. Well, the name is still undecided, and the owners are letting Nashvillians make the final determination. The owners ran a contest via Lightning 100 to come up with a name for the new venue (the ultimate winner will get 2 free tickets to every show for a year). The choices have been narrowed down to three finalists.
The Pink Elephant
Marathon Music Works
The good folks over at Nashville Cream argue that their is only one good choice amongst those finalist, and I agree with them. The building used to be occupied by Marathon Motor Works, so, Marathon Music Works is the obvious choice to keep a little bit of Nashville history alive.
Whether you agree with me and The Cream or not, you should head over to Lightning 100 to vote. Voting ends at 11:59pm on Thursday 8/11, and everyone who votes (read: gives their email address) will receive two tickets to an upcoming show of their choice in the next year. That’s reason enough!
