Rowdy Aussie psych/garage punks King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard recently kicked off their North American tour in Music City, blowing the roof off a sold out performance at Cannery Ballroom with help from alt indie outfit Mild High Club. Known for their high energy, free wheeling live performances, King Gizz did not disappoint, putting on easily one of the best shows we’ve seen all year. Read on for a full review, and some great shots of the festivities from contributing photographer Amber J. Davis.

Los Colognes Release Psychedelic Full Album Video for ‘The Wave’

Los Colognes-2017-620

Blog favorites Los Colognes dropped their third full-length, The Wave, earlier this year, honing in their familiar brand of ’80s jam-adjacent rock with a bit more pop flair, and landing as one of our favorite local releases of 2017. While they’ve previously released some video spots, and played several local and regional shows in support, the band have just further enhanced their latest effort with a full album-length video. The retro graphic laced spectacle is psychedelia at its finest, providing awesome visuals paired with a stellar soundtrack. We will warn you though, it’s quite hypnotizing, and after clicking play, you might get lost for about 45 minutes and 6 seconds.

Los Colognes are currently on the road, opening for Blues Traveler on a few of their tour stops, but we hope they make it back home to Music City soon. Stay tuned for updates on when you can next catch them in action, and check out the full album video for The Wave below!

[REMNDER] Don’t Miss Bent Denim, October Tooth, & No Ritual | Saturday, Sept. 9 @ The Basement

BentDenim

We’ve been stoked about the chilled out, ambient indie duo Bent Denim‘s gig at The Basement this Saturday, Sept. 9 since we first heard their stellar recent release Diamond Jubilee, and we even gave you chance at winning some free tickets. The half-Nashville based group have been creating densely layered, lo-fi music for the last several years now, and we look forward to getting the chance to enjoy it live with help from like-minded locals October Tooth, and resident lo-fi rockers No Ritual. There’s still time to snag some tickets right here, but at just seven bones it’s a steal of a deal, so don’t wait! For more information about the lineup, read on after the break, and we hope to see you there!
