We’re finally caught up on rest from Bonnaroo, and already a new weekend is upon us. With Middle Tennessee’s biggest fest in the rearview, the Nashville show landscape is looking extra packed this weekend, especially if you’re a fan of smaller or more DIY happenings. You have local indie, punk, garage rock, pop, folk, party rock, and more to pick from, with events ranging from free to wallet-friendly to a bit more extravagant, plus famed Americana rockers, emo/indie icons, a special Pink Floyd symphonic experience, and much more. You know the drill- start making plans with This Weekend in Nashville.

Summer fun is in full swing in Nashville. Regardless of what type of music you are a fan of, there is something for everyone with Bonnaroo in nearby Manchester and the cowboy-booted tourist hailing CMA Fest happening across town. If you weren’t able to make it to the farm this year, and aren’t a fan of country, fear not. You still have plenty of options from punk to pop to fill your aural needs.  Head below for our top picks in this week’s edition of TWiN!

[No Country Premiere] Watch Z’s Trippy Video For Noisy Pop Single “456”

Z-2018-620

Upstart rockers Z may not be on your radar yet, but they’re aiming to change that.  The project started last November as a performance art vehicle by Nashville based producer and audio/visual artist Zach Prosser, but has since grown into a foursome, rounded out by percussionist Julian Ciany, vocalist and spoken word poet Bri Baxter, and multi instrumentalist Steven Bauer.  While the band have an obvious melodic punk nucleus, digging in deeper you can also hear them dabbling in elements of kraut, funk, hardcore, industrial, and more, and that’s been cause for our recent obsession with the sound in their single, “456,” from their forthcoming album BarbedWire.org.

We asked Prosser about the inspiration for the song, and he tells us, “The concept behind ‘456’ was making techno using instruments and technology the Beatles would have had, recorded on analog tape machines, and manipulated by hand.”  He continues, “Lyrically, it contains many elements of the thesis proposed by BarbedWire.org: emotional stagnation and numbness perpetuated by modern consumer media.”

We’re thrilled to premiere the new music video for the track below, which was created by Prosser and Window Light.  If you want to see what their fierce live show is all about, then mark your calendar for Friday, June 8, when they’ll be playing a set as part of Discovery Fest, which is presented by our friends over at Cold Lunch Recordings.  This all day event also features performances by Paul Cherry, Butthole, Dreamwave, Only, Diamond Carter, and more.  Additional details about the show can be found here.
