This weekend, Nashville (by way of Mississippi) rockers The Weeks will be taking over Mercy Lounge for a two-night stand, featuring two different fantastic local and regional openers each night. Can you think of a better way to spend your last weekend before the holidays kick into high-gear? We can’t. Check out the schedule below:
All week long, we’re celebrating The Weeks’ Week, where we’ll tell you more about a different great act from the lineup each day. To kick things off, we’re bringing you the scoop on CHROME PONY, the killer Nashville trio set to open the show on Friday. If you like what you hear, be sure to snag your tickets. In addition to single nights, which cost just $12, weekend passes are available for $20. Both nights are 18+, and begin at 9 p.m., with doors at 8.
After the jump, get to know Chrome Pony:
Hailing from right here in Nashville, punk-tinged garage rock trio Chrome Pony is made up of two brothers, Kyle and Tyler Davis, along with recently added bassist Jon Gottschalk. They erupted onto the scene into 2011 with their powerful, grungy, turbocharged EP, Illegal Smiles, before following it up with their latest full-length, Lazy Bones, earlier this year. Lazy Bones takes the aesthetic and broad range of influences set by Illegal Smiles, and cranks things up a notch, giving a deeper nod to old school, no-bs rock and roll and heightened pop sensibilities balanced by punk tendencies, while benefitting from tighter songwriting and heightened production value.
One of our favorite underground bands in a seemingly flooded scene of Nashville indie rock acts, Chrome Pony set themselves apart by never limiting their sound to any narrow, preconceived niche, pulling the best elements from a plethora of influences, and never quite doing the same thing twice. They’ve become a dependable supporting act for a broad range of performers lately, because their live show is always high energy and top notch. Don’t believe us? Check out the video below.
