Show of hands. How many of you made it out to The High Watt on Monday night for Generationals and ELEL?  Show of hands again. How many of you danced?  C’mon, put your hands back up, you know it was one of the grooviest, most danceable sets that you have seen in a long time, especially for a freakin’ Monday.

Head below for our full review of the evening, and check out a plethora of great shots (from a very dark room) from Matt Cairns.

[Preview] Gregory Alan Isakov & Nathaniel Rateliff | TONIGHT @ 3rd & Lindsley


South African immigrant, Colorado native, and indie folk troubadour Gregory Alan Isakov will be enchanting Nashville with his musical tales tonight at 3rd & Lindsley with the company of Nathaniel Rateliff as the opening act. Much to our disbelief, there are still tickets available, and you can get yours for $20 right here.

It’s been a whole minute since Isakov last rolled into Nashville for the Americana Fest last September, where his set at Third Man Records was one of our highlights. If you dig lyrical genius and soothing voices, we guarantee this show will blow your mind. We’ve got more details about the lineup with some great videos below.

Gregory Alan Isakov to Play 3rd & Lindsley Jan. 21


While we’ve been furiously making our way down our Christmas checklists, shopping on Amazon’s never-ending holiday deals, wrapping presents, and stocking up on eggnog, Gregory Alan Isakov has been changing his guitar strings and checking the tread on his tires, because he’s officially hitting the road this January. Not a bad idea when gas is $2.20, I might add. He’ll be rolling into Nashville during his nationwide tour on Jan. 21 at 3rd & Lindsley, and, with an opener like Nathaniel Rateliff, y’all might want to nab your tickets early right here.

Isakov’s latest album, The Weatherman, is a masterfully wrought addition to his anthology of musical tales. It debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart and at #5 on Billboard’s Folk chart. To kick off his 2015 tour, Isakov’s official video for his elegant waltz, “Amsterdam,” premiered at NPR music and we’ve got it here just after the jump.

Glass Animals
w/ *repeat repeat

Exit/In; Nashville, TN
December 3, 2014

Review by Jake Wyatt. Photos by Matt Cairns.

Wednesday night was a night of exceeded expectations, from not just one, but both of the bands who performed at Exit/In. With No Country favorite *repeat repeat opening up the night with glowing guitar licks and chemical vocal duo of Jared and Kristyn Corder, they left us wanting more just as Glass Animals took the stage in front of their first ever Nashville crowd. We were proud of how many Nashvillians came out to support the lads of Glass Animals, as fans piled in continuously over the span of the two powerhouse bands. Shoulder to shoulder we stood, jumped, and danced to the local heros of sunny surf rock *repeat repeat and to the trippy and polished-smooth synth beats of Glass Animals. Scroll down, click the link below, call a friend who has a computer, or do what you must to find out what you missed Wednesday at Exit/In.

[Preview] Glass Animals w/ *repeat repeat | TONIGHT @ Exit/In

glass animals _620

Living in Nashville, we are surrounded by musicians, producers, DJs, songwriters and all-round merchants of music, so we’re all bound to hear an overwhelming amount of new and totally ace records. But every so often, while sifting through the mountains of melodies, we find an instant  classic; one that we know will be remembered through the years as a soundtrack to our present time and place. You know the feeling. English band Glass Animals are one such gem, and have captivated our attention with their slow indie-electro grooves that seem to echo from an ethereal concrete jungle.

The young band from Oxford will be stopping by the Exit/In TONIGHT, Dec. 3 at 9 p.m., and our friends *repeat repeat are kicking off the show. We wouldn’t bet on finding tickets at the door, so you’d best jump on it quickly and get yours here. After you lock those tickets down, be sure to read a bit more about Glass Animals and *repeat repeat after the jump.
