LiveOnTheGreen2018-TEMP

The 2018 season of Live on the Green wraps up this weekend with a three-day finale running the nights of Thursday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Aug. 31 and concluding with an all-day lineup on Saturday, Sept. 1, all expanded to two stages for double the incredible acts. This season has been one for the books already, boasting a great lineup of Dispatch, The Wood Brothers, Mt. Joy, and Roscoe & Etta to kick it off, a spectacularly indie Cold War Kids, Car Seat Headrest, Colony House, and *repeat repeat in week two, and then a fun and varied bill with last week’s stacked offering of Trampled By Turtles, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and Alanna Royale. Head below to find out more about the final three days, featuring a massive and impressive lineup of Jimmy Eat WorldX AmbassadorsDr. DogNatalie PrassRepublican HairRoots of a RebellionMatt and KimElliot RootThe Wild Feathers, ZZ WardTheo KatzmanRival SonsJackson Bruck & The Dukes of HumeThe FoxiesSavannah ConleyLuthiWakerThe New RespectsLissieMikky EkkoPaul McDonaldRayland BaxterArlieLarkin Poe, and Mr. Steve, The Music Man.

Per usual, LOTG is free and all ages. Music for the Thursday event kicks off a bit earlier at 5:30 p.m., Friday starts at 5:15 p.m., and Saturday will be a full day affair starting at 1 p.m. Gates open each day one hour before the music begins, and there will be plenty of food and beer vendors on site to meet your needs. Parking is $10 at the Public Square Park Garage below the festival site and $5 at Nissan E and F lots across the Woodland St Bridge (except for Thursday, when the Titans have a pre-season game; plan accordingly), and various other garages and street parking options are available on the surrounding blocks (also, ride share is relatively simple with designated drop off and pick up spots). If you’re looking to up the ante on your LOTG experience, VIP tickets and backstage passes are typically available for purchase, however they generally sell out in advance. And finally, the tradition of an official LOTG after party is back this year beginning each week at 11 p.m. at The Valentine on Broadway.

Don’t Miss Jam-O de Mayo ft. Roots of a Rebellion & CBDB | TONIGHT @ Exit/ In

Roots Of A Rebellion-2016-620

If the current state of affairs in the world today has you feeling down, and you need a little reminder that there are still people looking to spread positivity through song everywhere they go, look no further than local jam reggae-rock outfit Roots of a Rebellion, and their very special Jam-O de Mayo show tonight, May 5 at Exit/ In. With help from Alabama based prog/jam rockers CBDB in the warmup spot, it promises to be a great night of music, chock full of heady licks. Tunes start at 9 p.m., and tickets to the 18+ show are available here, but make haste, because ROAR’s local following seems to be growing with every show, and you’ll want a good spot for this one.

We also recently spoke to primary singer and guitarist Austin Smith, who told us that a new ROAR Summer Sampler is in the works (they did something similar in ’13). It will feature b-sides from their 2016 release, A Brother’s Instinct, plus some songs performed live, instrumentals, and reggae dubs. They’re shooting for 10-15 tracks in total, and they’ll release the sampler on their Bandcamp page for pay-what-you-want. Proceeds will help the Tennessee Reggae lynchpins on their East Coast tour, scheduled already in June. So catch the local favorites now, beofore they hit the road, for a slice of Nashville’s surpassingly vibrant jam and reggae scene.

Roots of a Rebellion and  CBDB will perform tonight, May 5 at Exit/ In. The show is 18+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $15.
