[REMINDER] Catch The Sea and Cake w/ James Elkington | TONIGHT @ Exit/In

TheSeaAndCake-620

Post-rock, post-jazz, indie pop Chicago icons The Sea and Cake have long been darlings of the underground scene, with nearly 25 years and 11 fantastic albums to their name. After a six year gap between records, they’re back with an excellent and refreshing new effort, Any Day, and return to Nashville for the first time in just as long to headline Exit/In tonight, May 22. Tapped to support, former Zincs frontman and Jeff Tweedy cohort James Elkington is an exciting solo artist to watch, celebrating this genre-bending, technical marvel of a debut album, Wintres Woma. If you’re looking for a fresh, engaging, expansive treat of a show, we encourage you to snag tickets right here! Find out more about below!

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Fleet Foxes w/ Amen Dunes | TONIGHT @ The Ryman Auditorium

Fleet Foxes-620

Out on the road in support of last year’s phenomenal third album Crack-Up, their first record in six years, newly reenergized indie folk act Fleet Foxes returned to Nashville last night for a sold out show at The Ryman Auditorium, and are back again once more tonight, May 22, both with New York’s Amen Dunes, their first Nashville dates since 2011. If you couldn’t make it last night, you’re in luck, as a limited number of tickets for tonight’s show are still available here, but we wouldn’t recommend dragging your feet, since it could still sell out before this evening. Read on for more on why you seriously don’t want to miss this show!

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Iceage w/ Empath & Deeper | TONIGHT @ Mercy Lounge

Iceage-620

One of the most critically beloved new acts to emerge from the punk sphere in recent years, particularly because they’ve bucked what their interpretation of punk is at every turn, Danish group Iceage are riding high on the praise for their new fourth album Beyondness. Returning to Nashville after an electrifying turn at The End a few years back, the band will headline Mercy Lounge tonight, May 21, and are bringing with them Philly artsy noise punks Empath and promising Chicago up and coming indie act Deeper. It’s a stacked bill and a must-see for fans of artsy, smart, substantive post-punk, indie, and art rock, and tickets are still available right here. Read more about the show!

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Guided By Voices | TONIGHT @ The Basement East

GuidedByVoices2018-620

Just a few years ago, it seemed like iconic indie outfit Guided By Voices‘ prolific and improbable reunion had flamed out for good, and our chances of seeing them once more in Music City looked slim. To our pleasant surprise, however, it wasn’t long before frontman Robert Pollard once again willed the band back into existence, recruiting a fantastic new lineup, which has released an impressive four new full-lengths since 2016, and has been touring relentlessly, with several stops in Nashville since their return. The group are back once more tonight, May 19, this time at The Basement East in support of excellent recent effort Space Gun. Known for their epically long sets and Pollard’s legendary presence and rock pedigree, no two GBV shows are the same, and whether you’re a longtime fan or newcomer, you’re bound to have a blast. Tickets are available here, though they might not last, and since no opener is listed (though local support might be added), we’d suggest being punctual!
