[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Watch Twen Perform “High on the Weekend” for Inaugural ‘High There Sessions’ Live Series

HighThereSessions-620

As you may recall, a few months back, we mentioned a midday show at Center 615, presented by our pals at Cold Lunch Recordings and doubling as a taping session for a new live performance series called High There Sessions. Set to become a monthly series, the first High There Session will officially drop this Friday, Oct. 12, featuring a performance from local psych-tinged indie/garage trio Twen. Expect live audio versions on Spotify, as well as performance and interview videos on YouTube, all expertly captured in a way that makes this effort more socially and visually honed than many similar series.

Presented by newly-transplanted independent distribution company MGM Distribution and the aforementioned local garage/psych label Cold Lunch Recordings, along with a whole team of talented local creatives, we’re thrilled to bring you an early sneak peek of tomorrow’s inaugural session with a premiere one of the videos: a live performance of standout Twen tune “High on the Weekend”!

Watch the video below, then follow High There Sessions on YouTube and the social media links below, for more on tomorrow’s first session and additional entries in the series in the months to come!

[REMINDER] Catch Welshly Arms w/ The Glorious Sons & Charming Liars | TONIGHT @ Exit/In

WelshlyArms-620

Returning to town for their first headlining show of the year, after a supporting spot with MISSIO a few months back, and marking their first Music City stop since the release of buzzy new LP No Place Is Home, eclectic alt rock up and comers Welshly Arms are set to headline Exit/In tonight, Oct. 10! A bill stacked with rising talent to watch, Canadian rockers The Glorious Sons, also subject to a ton of hype for their hard rocking LPs, are set to support, with British-American poppy alt rock trio Charming Liars tapped to kick things off. All three of these bands are worth your time, and together on the same bill, they bring an interesting, diverse look at what’s next in rock.

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Houndmouth w/ Family of the Year | TONIGHT @ Mercy Lounge

Houndmouth2018-620

Celebrating a new album, a shifted lineup, and their most radical sonic departure to date (good luck pegging them an Americana band with anything on their latest LP), Indiana’s Houndmouth are set to return to town for the first time in a couple of years to headline Mercy Lounge [note: previously scheduled for Marathon Music Works; previously purchased tickets will be honored] tonight, Oct. 10, along with poppy, LA indie folk group Family of the Year. We’ve dug everything Houndmouth has done since their earliest days, but with new record Golden Age, an experimental, indie effort more akin to acts like Tame Impala, we’re more intrigued than ever by where the band, now a trio, have ventured. There’s never been a cooler time to see them live, and you can still grab tickets to do so right here! Read on for more about the show.

Don’t Miss Minus the Bear’s Farewell Tour w/ Caspian | TONIGHT @ 3rd & Lindsley

MinusTheBear2018-620

Formed more than 15 years ago, out of the ashes of metal band Botch, indie group Sharks Keeps Moving, and emo/post-hardcore band Kill Sadie, alt rock/indie outfit Minus the Bear, who intensified the mathy tendencies of all of their members’ prior projects, combining elements of electronics and pop sensibilities with unorthodox rhythmic structure, have become a staple of the indie rock and punk adjacent scene throughout the celebrated run. Boasting danceable, dense, and unique instrumentation and smart, personal, and sometimes dark thematic focus, the group have both carved out a comfortable niche for fans of substantive indie rock, and have flirted with broader acclaim, crafting scene classics like Menos el Oso and Planet of Ice, both records they’ve celebrated with anniversary runs in recent years.

After six  well-regarded full-lengths, and a number of EPs and additional works, their most recent and final EP, Fair Enough, set to drop later this month, the band have decided to call it quits following a final farewell run, which returns Minus the Bear to 3rd & Lindsley tonight, Oct. 9 for one last Music City stop. Set to perform a communal, fan-geared, career-spanning set, this is obviously a must for any longtime followers of the group, and is sure to still be a delightful and incredible outing even for casual fans and newcomers. Opening things up, Boston post-rockers Caspian have long been a seminal indie act in the same scene, and given their long history as friends and peers of MtB, they feel like a suitable band to support this run. Incredibly, tickets are still available, so grab them here, then come help send off one of the back indie rock acts of the last two decades tonight!

Minus the Bear and Caspian will perform tonight, Oct. 9 at 3rd & Lindsely. The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $25.
