JUNG YOUTH

We recently sat down with the local hip-hop artist to talk shop and you can read all about it here and be sure to peep his video below.

THE YOUNG INTERNATIONAL

These Nash natives’ polished alternative rock has been making heads bob for almost three years now, and they’re only gaining acclaim. Have a taste …

MAJESTICO

Majestico are just plain rock ’n’ fuckin’ roll, with some showmanship added for good measure. We couldn’t be happier to see them growing in popularity. The live video below is just a sample of their sound, and how bad ass is that feather headdress!?

BUFFALO RODEO

The Bowling Green Kentucky natives will be bringing their progressive, reverb indie rock south to Music City, and their huge sound with have you hippie dancing in no time!

SOL CAT

The local boys play an “every man” form of indie that is catchy as shit. Check out their video below, and instantly miss lounging outside in the summer.

BLACK SEA ROYALTY

Their foot-tapping alternative pop is perfect for shaking loose even the deepest, ugliest moods. Become uplifted.

KRISTEN CAPOLINO

Hailing from Woodstock, NY, this pint-sized thrasher is a ball of energy and an amazing collage of guitar faces. We have NEVER seen a lady shred quite like this. Sit back and enjoy.

THE HARMALEIGHS

Helping to broaden the Jingle Ball spectrum even more, the Nashvegas folk trio bring a lighter sound for everyone to enjoy and to help us all level out. Check out their music below!

PILOT ROGUE

This band is brand spanking new, as in they formed earlier this year. Be one of the first people to catch their alternative sounds live!

LAUREN RANTALA

Nash transplant via NC, her jazzy influenced indie pop is unique to the bill and worth more than a passing glance.

BODY OF LIGHT

Earlier this week we told you all about Body of Light’s experimental EP, and you can read about it here or take a listen directly underneath these words.

CLASSIC WILLIAMS

Another dose of hip-hop flavored tunes for this evening’s festivities! Check out his tripped out video. Drugs not included.

THAT’S MY KID

Raw nerve blues rock ’n’roll at it’s finest. If you ask me, power trios will never be passe.

Jung Youth, The Young International, Majestico, Buffalo Rodeo, Sol Cat, Black Sea Royalty, Kristen Capolino, The Harmaleighs, Pilot Rogue, Lauren Rantala, Body of Light, Classic Williams, and That’s My Kid will be performing TONIGHT at Mercy Lounge and The High Watt, starting at 8pm. It is a 21+ show and it is 100% FREE!
