This Weekend In Nashville – October 12-14

Man, what a week.  First off a huge thanks to those of you that voted for us in the Best Of Nashville Readers Poll!  We’re totally humbled by the honor, and thank you all for your support of us and the Nasvhille music scene!

Now, let’s give you some ideas of music to get out and see this weekend.

Well, I guess the biggest name that you will hear is Grace Potter & The Nocturnals‘ two night stand over at The Ryman on Friday and Saturday.  She’s obviously pretty loved to pull a two night Ryman stand, but it isn’t necessarily my cup of tea.  You can check out some of her best aspects below.  If you like that, or her music, you can snag those tickets here.

Alright, let’s take a look at what else is going on Fridaynight.

Alanna Royale w/ The Brand New Life & Zig Zag Mojo are playing at The Basement.  Alanna Royale is a name that I suspect you are going to be hearing more and more of around Nashville in the near future.  I mean, if Brittany Howard can do it with the Alabama Shakes, what’s to say that Alanna can’t pull the same magic off.  You can check out some crowd footaget of her performing “Animal” at The Basement below.  Things get started at 9pm, and ticket’s will run ya $7.


ASCAP and Native Magazine are throwing a party called Docktoberfest over at Jackalope Brewery.  The musical highlights will include Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes, Wild Cub, Ravello, and Allen Thompson.  I’m kind of wondering how you can go wrong with this venue and lineup.  Things get started at 7pm, and this sucker is FREE!!!!  You can get more information over at the event’s Facebook page.


Your free comfortable weather musical experience will be with Musician’s Corner in Centennial Park with Sixpence None The Richer, Yarn, Andrew Combs, Rosco Bandana.  Acoustic sets from Evan McHugh, Stephanie Day, and Jameson Elder will also be on tap.  Things get started around 3pm, and like we said before… keep your money in your wallet, cause this sucker is free!  For more info, click here.

For your late night enjoyment, there is a pretty sweet lineup at the Labyrinth House Party featuring Creature Comforts, Girls & Money, and Scale Model.  This is bound to be a freaking riot, and is not to be missed.  You can check out the Facebook event page here.  They have links back there to check out each of the bands too.


Just when you thought your weekend was over, you have the opportunity to head down to Dino’s to check out the Split EP Release Party w/ Penicillin Baby, Megajoos, & Tennessee Scum.  We’ve talked about Penicillin Baby already, and, if you haven’t checked out that post, you should do that right now.  You can also check out the Megajoos/Penicillin Baby split EP below.

It’s your weekend, get out and see some live music!
