[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Arlie w/ Briston Maroney | TONIGHT @ Mercy Lounge

Arlie2018-620

Though newcomers to the local rock scene, Vanderbilt-bred, retro-infused, pop-primed rockers Arlie have had a pretty stellar year, with major festival appearances (Bonnaroo, SXSW, Live on the Green), national tours, a major label record deal ahead of their debut EP, and ever-growing buzz, making their hometown headliner tonight, Dec. 7 at Mercy Lounge, as much a victory lap as it is an exciting end of year appearance. Primed to be Nashville’s next big breakout rock act, Arlie’s live show has been honed from a year on the road, and after the recent release of their first EP, Wait, it’s a great time to see them with more tunes in their arsenal. Tapped for support, local singer-songwriter Briston Maroney is enjoying a new wave of buzz for his latest and best EP to date, Carnival, and helps makes this billing even more essential.

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Cherub w/ NAWAS & Meth Dad | Dec. 14 @ Marathon Music Works

Cherub2018-620

After a whirlwind ascent followed by a much needed breather, breakout local indie/electro pop duo Cherub returned this year with a string of excellent new singles and their first tour in over a year a and half. One of Nashville’s coolest underground success stories, the band haven’t played a proper hometown headliner since a New Year’s Eve outing at the end of 2016, which has us extra excited for their Music City return, Dec. 14 at Marathon Music Works, where they’re sure to entertain with some fresh jams! Joining Cherub are buzzy local up and comers NAWAS and kindred spirit and party fixture Meth Dad, making this one seriously epic party to help wind down the year as we head into the holidays. Tickets are still available here while they last, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan, so read on for more about the show and enter for a chance to win below!

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] The Lees of Memory w/ The Vamptones & Krazy Kyle | Dec. 14 @ Exit/In

TheLeesOfMemory2018-620

Featuring former members of Superdrag and Slack, The Lees of Memory have spent the last few years becoming one of the most interesting and prolific acts in Nashville’s underground rock scene, perfecting their fusion of power pop and shoegaze over three LPs, most recently last year’s impressive double album The Blinding White of Nothing at All, and amassing critical acclaim along the way. We hosted their first show ever a few years back, and while they’ve played many more since, hometown outings are still something of an intermittent occurrence, which is why the group’s Dec. 14 headlining show at Exit/In, along with local kindred spirits The Vamptones and organist Krazy Kyle, is one of the year’s last must-see concerts! You can still grab tickets right here, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Read on for more about the show, and enter for a chance to win below.

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Gang of Youths w/ Gretta Ray | TONIGHT @ The Basement East

GangOfYouths-620

Though already an established, widely successfully, chart-topping, and award winning act in their native Australia, thanks to two strong records in just a three year span, eclectic, high-flying, and poignant rockers Gang of Youths have had their biggest year yet stateside, as last year’s sophomore LP Go Farther in Lightness, continues to propel them to a wider international stage. After making their Music City debut back in the spring, the band are set to return for an even bigger headliner tonight, Dec. 4, when they stop through to play The Basement East with another great Australian up and comer, indie pop singer Gretta Ray. Tickets to this buzzy outing are still available here, so snag yours now and read on for more about the show!

Don’t Miss Turnstile w/ Angel Du$t & Vein | TONIGHT @ Exit/In

Turnstile2018-620

When it comes to the modern hardcore scene- as in real-deal, heavy, fast, ’80s and ’90s infused, unfiltered hardcore punk- no band is hotter right now than Baltimore’s Turnstile. The buzzy group have been around since 2010, but only over the past few years, and especially after 2015 debut full-length Nonstop Feeling, have they defied the typical hardcore band trajectory and leapt out of the DIY scene to become an act with critical acclaim (from unlikely sources like NPR, to boot) and the beginnings of a crossover following. Their sophomore effort, Time & Space, arrived earlier this year through major label Roadrunner, which, again, is kind of insane for an unrelenting hardcore group such as this. Their records are good, but to see Turnstile shine you really need to see them live, where they’ve cultivated one of the most unabashedly fun, energetic, and of course chaotic live shows in the scene.

You can do just that when Turnstile return to town tonight, Dec. 2, moving across the street from their usual haunt at The End, this time to headline the bigger Exit/In. Better yet, they’ll be joined by fellow Baltimore hardcore act Angel Du$t, formed by Trapped Under Ice frontman Justice Tripp a few years back during his other project’s hiatus, who also just released a brand new LP through Roadrunner, and Boston’s Vein, who veer more into the metal side of the spectrum with their own flavor of hardcore. Needless to say, fan of hardcore would be hard-pressed to find a better pairing of modern acts, and if you want to end your weekend with a wild-ass show at Exit/In, you can still snag tickets right here!

Turnstile, Angel Du$t, and Vein will perform tonight, Dec. 2 at Exit/In. The show is 18+, begins at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $22.
