[REMINDER] Catch Robyn Hitchcock w/ Lilly Hiatt and Justin & The Cosmics | TONIGHT @ The Basement East

RobynHitchcock-620

We gave you the heads up on this one, and a chance at free tickets last week, but now the time has come for newly local British legend Robyn Hitchcock to serenade the crowd with songs pulled from his massive catalog. Look for fellow residents Lilly Hiatt as well as Justin & The Cosmics to kick things off, on what promise to be an eclectic night of live music. Tunes will start tonight, May 25 at 8 p.m. at The Basement East, and tickets are currently available here. We recommend snagging yours sooner than later, because as word spreads that tickets remain for a cult followed legend like Mr. Hitchcock, odds are it will be filled to near capacity. Read on for a full run down on the lineup, and we look forward to seeing some of you at the show!

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Chip Greene Debuts “River Song” Ahead of New Record ‘In My Town’

ChipGreene

Local artist Chip Greene has a refined approach to melody, pressed through a smokey blues filter, which has given birth to his soulful, salt-of-the-earth rock and roll  sound. The skilled singer-songwriter found his love for music as a pre-teen, and now chases his passion professionally. He recently caught our attention, and we liked what we heard so much, we invited him to play our May 23 Acme showcase. Along with that performance, and ahead of his new record, In My Town, slated for a July release, we’ve partnered up with Chip to debut his latest single, “River Song,” which you can enjoy after the jump.

On the album, Greene tells us: “The record is loosely a song cycle of observations about Nashville. Relationships, gentrification, natural disasters, the musician life, etc. The track you guys are going to play, ‘River Song,’ was inspired by the 2010 flood.  I wanted to consider how such a beautiful and peaceful part of our city could also be dangerous and destructive, and should be respected.  The music goes back and forth between major and minor to illustrate this.”

While you wait for the new LP to arrive, enjoy “River Song,” and look for a full preview of Chip’s upcoming Acme performance soon!
