I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I try to take Sundays off. I need a day to clear my brain, get the fresh slate, and be ready to spend another week listening, writing, emailing, marketing, banging my head against a wall because I don’t know enough about webshit, and just general blabbing. But, that being said, I still want to tell you about what is going on Sunday night in Nashville!
I know Sunday nights are for family, or football, or sleeping off your hangover, or whatever your vice… but, this is kind of a special occasion. Megafaun is playing at 3rd and Lindsley! You might remember me talking about their self-titled record which released back in mid September, and is their fourth release since forming back in 2007. It’s a great record. I’ve been following Megafaun since I first learned about Bon Iver back in 2007. Why would that connection be there? The Megafaun guys (Joe Westerland and Brad & Phil Cook) and Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) used to play in a band called DeYarmond Edison, before they branched out into their current projects. Megafaun hasn’t exactly had the same commercial success that we have seen with Bon Iver, but they have a pretty awesome psych-folk sound that is definitely worth you breaking up your Sunday routine to check out!
If you don’t already know them, I have attached a few tracks below to get you acquainted with Megafaun, and you can check out their Daytrotter session. Things get started around 8pm with opener Bad Axe. You can grab your $12 tickets here.
It’s a short week, so quit yer bitchin’ about it being Sunday, and get out to see some live music!
