Still legends around these parts for their epic (and infamous) rooftop performance at our 2015 Acme Feed & Seed showcase, Louisville garage punks White Reaper broke out in a big way with their sophomore full-length, White Reaper Does It Again, that same year, and have been rising in presence ever since. With their fuzzy, energetic, genre-straddling sound, the band teeter between punk rock bite and indie rock swagger, and with their latest, the recently-released The World’s Best American Band, White Reaper reach for bigger, bolder, more anthemic and arena-primed heights. After a busy summer of festival dates (including nearby Bonnaroo), and following a stop at The Basement East back in the spring, the group make a welcome Nashville return tonight, Nov. 4 to headline Mercy Lounge with Chicago psych pop outfit Post Animal and local party rockersa Ri¢hie, and while tickets are still available, we don’t expect them to last; if you haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon or you’re do for another fix, this is going to be one of the fall’s coolest shows.
White Reaper, Post Animal, and Ri¢hie will perform tonight, Nov. 4 at Mercy Lounge. The show is 18+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $18.
