It seems like this is the weekend of residencies.  We have Jason Isbell who has sold every ticket imagineable to his three night run at The Ryman, and we have local rock heroes JEFF The Brotherhood making an equally awesome statement by pulling off a three night undersell run at The End.  Both of those tickets are proving harder and harder to get, but don’t fret, there are TONS of other shows going on including an all-star lineup at The Basement, a “pumpkin ale patch” party, and free shows galore.  Find your weekend plans here with all of our staff picks in this week’s edition of TWiN!

FRIDAY

BOOM FOREST
@ 12th & Porter | 7:15pm | Free | All Ages

Wisconsin native John Paul Roney has relocated to Nashville as Boom Forest, a folk/experimental/rock artist backed by a team of incredibly talented musicians. Most recently the musician released a self-titled full length album in January of this year with tracks that explore all edges of the folk/rock worlds.  [BM]

JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD W/ DILLON WATSON, PUPPET SHOW, DJ DOMO
@ The End | 9pm | $5 | 18+

Holy shit! Here we go! We’ve been telling you to plan accordingly for this weekend, and it’s time to see if your training paid off! Local rock heroes JEFF The Brotherhood begin a three night undersell residency at The End tonight.  We’re old pros at JEFF shows by now, and really the only thing we have to wonder… will the building still be standing by Sunday?  Expect crowd surfing, mayhem, fist pumps, scream alongs, and all out FUN!  Dillon Watson, Puppet Show, and DJ Domo round out the bill for round one tonight! [MH]

JASON ISBELL W/ AMANDA SHIRES
@ The Ryman | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages

Jason Isbell returns to the Ryman tonight for a three night stay. During his last visit to the Ryman, Isbell picked up Americana Music Awards for Album of the Year, Southeastern, Song of the Year “Cover Me Up”, and Artist of the Year. His wife, Amanda Shires, opens the show and we are guessing she will provide vocals and violin during his set. Unfortunately, all three shows are sold out. [JMo]

PICK THE VOTE FT MY SO CALLED BAND!
@ Marathon Music Works | 8pm | FREE | 18+

Thanks to the nice politics people that sport the blue donkey instead of the red elephant (who came up with those anyway?), you can head out to party tonight with Nashville’s (hell, the world’s) greatest 90s cover band, My So Called Band.  I’m sure there will be a lot of folks there trying to get you to sign up to vote (which you should do anyway), but that seems like your civic duty while rocking out to Nirvana & Red Hot Chili Pepper covers! [MH]

COURTNEY JAYE W/ TOMMY HANS, WILLIAM TYLER AND ANGELA JAMES
@ The Basement | 9pm | $5 | 21+

Our favorite local chanteuse Courtney Jaye headlines an all star bill at The Basement on Friday night.  Jaye will be joined by local virtuosos Tommy Hans and William Tyler, as well as Chicago based Americana darlin Angela James who released her debut, Way Down Deep, earlier this week! Check out the hot off the presses new video for “Lost And Found” to see why you should make it a point to get there early.  [MH]

SEXX, FRENCH LIPS, FAUNA HALO, HOME & AWAY, AND VESTIGES
@ The East Room | 9pm | $5 | 21+

The Hong Meow art collective is putting on a real hipster shindig complete with a pop-up boutique, local art for sale, a photo booth, food from Actual Food Nashville, someone doing fire-spinning, and also five great local bands including the surf-punks Sexx and sexy blues trio French Lips[JSa]

THE SHIVAS
@ Grimey’s | 6pm | Free | All Ages

Portland, OR surf rock, psychedelic party animals, The Shivas will be playing an intimate in-store event at Grimey’s that is 100% free for all ages! The bad news is you better dip out of work early, because these in-store sets fill up fast, and if you get their late you’ll be on the outside looking in.  [JR]

JAY NASH W/ JOSH DAY AND SALLY JAYE
@ The High Watt | 9pm | $10 | 18+

The leaves are changing, the weather is growing colder, and there’s little doubt that we find ourselves firmly in the season of autumn. For many music fans, this time of year is associated with folk music. These types will likely be happy to receive news, then, that Jay Nash will be performing tonight at The High Watt. The Los Angeles based artist enjoys a reputation as a true songwriter, whose musical, vocal, and lyrical skills are all quite impressive. [JS]

EAST NASHVILLE UNDERGROUND’S PUMPKIN ALE PATCH ft. TWIGGS, CHURCHYARD, JUSTIN KALK ORCHESTRA
@ 1604 Shelby Avenue | 6pm | $5 | 18+

East Nashville Underground pops their head back above ground for the second annual Pumpkin Ale Patch throwdown.  We caught this event last year, and it was an absolute masterpiece.  Expect more this year with performances by Twiggs, Churchyard, Justin Kalk Orchestra, beers, nibbly bits, bon fires, and a scary screening of Halloween to get you in the spirit.  Head here for details about parking, entry, etc.  [MH]

THE WOOD BROTHERS W/ KRISTINA TRAIN
@ City Winery | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All ages

The Wood Brothers have again sold out two nights in a row on their home turf. Hit up Craigslist for tickets, because they are worth checking out. [SJ]

SATURDAY

MUSICIANS CORNER: KOA, ANDREW COMBS, BLACKFOOT GYPSIES AND ANDREW RIPP
@ Centennial Park | 1:30pm| Free | All Ages

Musicians Corner’s Fall Season closes this weekend and the Main Stage features Andrew Ripp, Blackfoot Gypsies, Andrew Combs and Rio.   The Acoustic Stage has Kristen Wright, Samsel and the Skirt and Annalise Emerick.   Tyler Barham and Belmont Battle of the Bands Winner, KOA, will also perform. In addition to the great, free music, there are Food Trucks, Kidsville and Dogville Activities, a Local Artisan Marketplace, and a Beer & Wine Garden with happy hour that runs from 12 – 1:30PM. [JMo]

JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD W/ CERRATION PULSE, CHAINSHOT, DJ QNY, DJ GREMLIN
@ The End | 9pm | $5 | 18+

Are you still alive?  Hello?  Dust yourself off and get back up youngster.  We’re about to do it all over again.  This time with a different supporting cast featuring Cerration Pulse, Chainshot, DJ QNY, & DJ Gremlin!  Don’t be a wuss, grab a six pack and make it happen. [MH]

JASON ISBELL W/ ST. PAUL AND THE BROKEN BONES
@ The Ryman | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages+

Tonight is the second of Jason Isbell’s three night stand at the Ryman.  The openers are St. Paul & the Broken Bones, who also made quite an impression with their set during the Americana Music Awards show. Don’t be surprised if they are headlining their own show at the Ryman very soon.  [JMo]

MINDY SMITH
@ City Winery | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages

It’s a night to celebrate the relatively reclusive Mindy Smith, as it has been 10 years since she burst onto the scene with her hit single “Come To Jesus”.  It is sure to be a special night to have this rare opportunity to see her in the intimate confines of City Winery.  This one has been sold out since it was announced, so you would likely need a miracle if you aren’t already holding tickets. [MH]

THELMA & THE SLEAZE W/ BEEF OVEN, BOOTLEG GLORY AND BEN SPINKS SUPERMELT
@ The Basement | 9pm | $5 | 21+

Local all-female hard rock trio Thelma & the Sleaze can play cock rock better than the boys. They’re being joined at the Basement by the Toronto-based garage band Bootleg Glory, who are celebrating their CD release this evening. Local surf-punk trio Beef Oven and Ben Spinks Supermelt round out the hard rocking bill.  [JSa]

COIN W/ THE LONELY BISCUITS AND CREATURE COMFORT
@ Exit/In | 9pm | $10 | 18+

Local indie dance rock favorites Coin are back in town and ready to party this Saturday night at Exit/In. The group will be joined by two other highly esteemed local acts: rap-rock outfit The Lonely Biscuits and indie rockers Creature Comfort. It’s definitely going to be an upbeat, crowd-friendly show, so be sure to get on out by 9 pm to catch all three bands. [JS]

LAKE STREET DIVE W/ THE CONGRESS
@ The Cannery Ballroom | 7pm | $20 | 18+

If you only go to one show this week, we recommend checking out the Lake Street Dive performance at Cannery. There’s only a few acts out there that can match the intellectualism and charm of the soulful Boston based indie jazz outfit, and their live performance with The Congress this Saturday is the perfect way to experience their tunes. Both these acts help to remind us why music is considered a form of higher art and are recommended for those readers who enjoy catchy tunes that require serious thought to fully digest. [JS]

MILO GREENE W/ FIREKID
@ The Stone Fox | 8pm | $12 | 18+

LA native, five-piece, indie pop ensemble Milo Greene will be headlining a low dough show at The Stone Fox with resident singer songwriter Firekid all set to you warm you up. At just $12, you’ll have more than enough money to grab some grub, and more than a few brews.  [JR]

BOOM BAP
@ The 5 Spot | 9pm | $5 | 21+

The best (monthly) hip-hop dance party in all of Music City is going down this Saturday! Don’t be a lame, get there early, so you can hear all of special guest DJ Jay-Ski head banging set. [JR]

MONSTER BLOCK PARTY ft. DJ SNAKE, 3LAU, MERCER, BIXEL BOYS & MORE
@ Anthem | 7:30pm | $31-$66 | 18+

If you are looking for the dopest dance party Nashville has to offer.  Headlining this all night throw down is DJ Snake who most famously teamed up with Lil’ John for the bangin’ club standard “Turn Down For What”.  If for no other reason, this will be worth it to see everyone freaking the eff out to this track.  See the awesomely inappropriate video below to see what we mean!   [MH]

SUNDAY

JASON ISBELL W/ STURGILL SIMPSON
@ The Ryman | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages

This weekend is clearly about Jason Isbell’s rise from the ashes to sweep his nominations at the Americana Music Awards and his sold out weekend at The Ryman, but we were more blown away by the winner of the Americana Award winner for Emerging Artist Of The Year, Sturgill Simpson.  If you haven’t had the chance to catch this performer live, do yourself a favor and add him to your list of must sees, because we suspect he just might be selling out the weekend at The Ryman in the not too distant future himself.  [MH]

THE LAST BISON W/ BOMBADLI
@ 3rd & Lindsley | 8pm | $10 | All Ages

Lighting 100’s Nashville Sunday Night series marches on with Chesapeake, VA alt-folk troubadours The Last Bison and Durham, NC folk popsters Bombadli. All ages, and only $10? Definitely worth checking out! [JR]

JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD W/ WEEKEND BABES, DELUXIN’
@ The End | 9pm | $5 | All ages

Our favorite, rowdy, rock ’n’ roll siblings, JEFF the Brotherhood, keep the good times going with their third, and final show, of a three day residency at The End. Even better, this one is an ALL AGES blow out, to help make sure some of their younger fans get in on at least a little bit of the action. Two other local bands, rockers Weekend Babes, and punksters Deluxin’, fill out a super cheap bill that should cap off the amazing weekend of JEFF we have all been looking forward to. [JR]
