[Preview] Angel Olsen @ Mercy Lounge TONIGHT!

Angel Olsen by Autumn Northcraft

It’s a shame we can’t call Chicago’s Angel Olsen our own. Picture her country yodel echoing in the dismal catacombs of East Nashville where Dino’s (now under new ownership) and Edgefield (currently for sale at $1.8 million) are laid to rest.

English Scholar Robert Burton, most known for his book, The Anatomy of Melancholy said, “There is something in a woman beyond all human delight; a magnetic virtue, a charming quality, an occult and powerful motive.” It’s a quote Olsen possesses. See for yourself TONIGHT at Mercy Lounge!  Things get started at 9pm, and tickets are still available here for $12!

Margo Price – All American Made

MargoRaePrice-620

Yes Country For New Nashville. Her name is Margo Price.

Margo Rae Price. She’ll take over your senses. The singer-songwriter, performer and badass front woman of Buffalo Clover (playing tomorrow at Tres De Mayo at Riverfront Park) and Margo and the Pricetags (playing tomorrow night at The Stone Fox) is a beauty. She’s the kind of female that Robert Plant painted in his lyrics for “Going To California”, “Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.”  She will trade a light for a cigarette, and if a bird shits on her brand new hat, she’ll just laugh and smile saying, “It’s good luck.” On her left shoulder, she’s adorned with ink inspired by The Birds of Rhiannon. “The birds were said to wake the dead with their song and to lull the living to sleep,” she recites.

[Featured Interview] Blouse TONIGHT at Exit / In with Dum Dum Girls

BlousebyTonjeThilesen

Add Blouse to the list of reasons to gush about Portland, OR. Hot off a week of SXSW, the three piece will perform in Nashville TONIGHT with Dum Dum Girls at Exit / In in support of their critically acclaimed album Imperium. Tickets are still available! Their sophomore record sounds of DIY, experimental-psychedelics that evoke a film reel of Lou Reed and Nico in the afterlife. It’s 10 tracks feel like a vacation you don’t want to end (insert James Franco: “Spring Break FOREVER”). Imperium was produced by band member Jacob Portrait (of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) who explained the record is filled with “instruments that don’t plug into the wall” and released on the Brooklyn, NY stellar indie label, Captured Tracks (Perfect Pussy, DIIV, Wild Nothing). It’s no wonder that Dum Dum Girls (on tour in support of one of 2014’s best albums yet, Too True) scooped them up for opening so we jumped on the opportunity to pick lead singer Charlie Hilton’s brain about Nashville, inspiration, Portlandia and more…

[Preview] St. Vincent @ Marathon Music Works TONIGHT! 3.7.14

St. Vincent Album Artwork

Let’s be real. St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) is a babe. She’s a vision of beauty that makes her brilliant and odd artistry pleasantly overwhelming. Perhaps you’ve been in love since her debut Marry Me, caught on during Actor, felt the revelation of Strange Mercy, were spell-binded by the perfect musical marriage of Love This Giant with David Byrne or are just now discovering her with the brand new St. Vincent. The glaring, undeniable truth is that you must (yes, MUST!) experience her live. Don’t miss your opportunity to marvel in awe at Marathon Music Works TONIGHT! Lucky for you, tickets for her show are available at the moment!
