No Country Presents’ weekly showcase, in partnership with Acme Feed & Seed, is still in full swing as we roll through spring. Our next installment, Tuesday, April 28 will feature our April resident indie popstress Femke, St. Louis bred soul singer Morgan Bosman, and local indie popsters Wildfront. Music starts around 7 p.m. and goes at least until 10 pm, so get there early to cash in on as much FREE music as possible. For more info on the bands, please read on, and we hope to see all of you there!
Self described, via their Facebook page, as waterlogged dream pop, Wildfront are a local four-piece we’ve become very familiar with over the past year or so. Just in case you were wondering, the band used to be called Josephine and the Wildfront, but have since dropped the prefix. Of course Josephine is still in band, so don’t worry! We also told you all about their warm-up set, in support of Francisco The Man (read this post), and we’ve been digging their latest EP Strange Gold. The video for the title track, embedded below, has also garnered them some great press, including numerous awards at the ARTLightenment Art and Film Festival here in Nashville. It earned Best Song, Best Inspirational Film, and Best Music Video prizes, and now they’ve earned their chance to showcase their skills at our weekly showcase on Broadway, so don’t miss it!
Hailing originally from St. Louis, now calling Music City home, Morgan Bosman is a soul singing songwriter you need in your life ASAP. You will hear heavy gospel, jazz, and r&b influences in her tunes, and she has already generated some buzz for herself around town, winning Nashville’s Hard Rock Rising’s Battle of the Bands 2014. Nationally, you may have noticed Bosman’s song “Notice Me,” was featured on American Songwriter Magazine’s website, where it was presented as the Daily Discovery. Even cooler news? Her up coming self-titled EP drops the day of her performance at Acme, so be sure to snag a copy when you see her live!
Finishing off her month long Acme residence, Femke Weidema seems to just get better with every performance. She first came onto our radar as part of the now defunct folk/Americana group Cotton Wine, but she and her incredible backing band are now simply just Femke, shifting to poppy, synth-laden new sound that we can’t get enough of. After you get some of the soon-to-blow-up-big Dutch songstress in you’re life this Tuesday, you’ll understand why we asked her to stay all month.
Wildfront, Morgan Bosman, and Femke will perform Tuesday, April 28 at Acme Feed & Seed. The show is 21+, music begins at 7:30 p.m., and, per usual, it’s totally FREE. Downtown PARKING can sometimes be an issue. However, if you’re willing to walk a few blocks, street parking is typically easy to find on the numbered avenues south of Broadway, or along Korean Veterans Blvd. Metered spaces are often free after 6 p.m.
