As we’ve been telling you for a while, fast rising Louisiana based rockers Seratones, who we’ve been crushing on, are cruising through Nashville’s The Basement tonight (May 13) in support of their debut album, Get Gone, which dropped last week on Fat Possum Records. They will be joined by interesting new local band Tennessee Muscle Candy. Tickets are available for a mere $6, so snag a pair and head out for the 9 p.m. show.
Hailing from the musically diverse scene in Shreveport, Louisiana, Seratones blend of garage rock attitude and gospel trained vocals have been a hot item in 2016. They received heaps of praise during a SXSW run, following hopping on cross country tours with St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Houndmouth, and The Dandy Warhols, and now they are touring in support of their debut record, Get Gone, which dropped on taste maker label Fat Possum Records on May 6. In the vein of Alabama Shakes, Seratones are led by powerhouse frontwoman, A.J. Haynes, who met up with the rest of the band in the Shreveport punk scene, and that DIY upbringing certainly shows in their high powered, no holds barred live show. Have a listen to the first single “Chandelier” below to get a taste of these fast rising rockers.
TENNESSEE MUSCLE CANDY
New rising local psychedelic garage pop outfit Tennessee Muscle Candy is fronted by yet another powerhouse, soulful female frontwoman, Alexis Saski. The band formed on a lark during a cold winter night when Alexis and her unemployed bandmates couldn’t afford to keep the heat on to stay warm, so they took to Broadway for busking. Now warmed up with the folks at Western Electric Records, Tennessee Muscle Candy just released their first single “Walk That Walk,” which has the swagger of Nancy Sinatra and the attitude of Karen O.
Seratones and Tennessee Muscle Candy will perform Friday, May 13 at The Basement. The show is 21+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8:30 p.m.), and tickets are available for $6.
