The Rentals to Play Mercy Lounge May 25


When last we checked in on The Rentals, the power pop project of ex-Weezer bassist Matt Sharp, the group were gearing up to release their first album in 15 years, 2014’s Lost in Alphaville, boasting a new supergroup lineup of Lauren Chipman, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Ryen Slegr of Ozma, and The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney. In the months since the LP’s summer release, the band have already embarked on one tour, and, last week, announced a second leg, which will bring them to Mercy Lounge on May 25 for a performance with Rey Pila and Radiation City. The Rentals’ new live lineup is set to include Sharp, Chipman, Slegr, Starfucker’s Shawn Glassford, Ted Gowans of Tegan and Sara, and Patti King and Lizzy Ellison of Radiation City. Best we can tell, this marks the group’s first Nashville date in eight years, and tickets are available here right now!
