Winter is here! Winter is here! It freakin’ snowed this week! What was that all about? Regardless, it’s the weekend, and we know that you are going to get out to enjoy yourselves. So, we’ve rounded up some of the best music happening this weekend to warm up your souls and ear holes. Check out all of our staff picks with the our latest edition of This Weekend in Nashville!
We saw a lot of you getting your weekend started early at Live On The Green last night, but it doesn’t stop there. We have a lot of great music related stuff going on this weekend including, release shows, interestingly named house shows, and a bunch of tomatoes. All of our picks are below, but, whatever you do, get out to see some live music!
SXSW is looming on the horizon. In just under two months, the entire indie scene will descend on Austin. We brought you news of the first wave of Nashville artists announced back in November, the second in December, and now we’ve got the third (and, I believe, last) big group announcement. Once again, there’s plenty of Nashville love, and this just might be the most eclectic group of bands yet! The lineup gets even more exciting with each announcement, and we’ve posted music from all the new bands below. Congrats to all of the talented bands and friends of the site who will be performing this year, we know you’re going to make our city proud!
Bobby Bare (Sr.)
The Cadillac Black
The Dynamites & Charles Walker
Luella and the Sun
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band
The Wild Feathers
Also from announced from Tennessee, Memphis artists Adam WarRock and Jason D. Williams, andKnoxville band The Black Lillies have been added to the bill!
You can check out the full artist announcement on SXSW’s site. As I said, I think this is going to be the last big group announcement, but expect plenty more artists to still be added to the bill between now and March.
