Catch Daddy Issues, The Jag, Microwave Mountain, Reality Something, Sad Baxter, Idle Bloom,& More | TONIGHT @ Spewfest 3

Spewfest3-620

The third annual installment of local indie label Cold Lunch Recordings’ epic showcase, Spewfest 3 is so packed with amazing talent, we can hardly believe they’re all in town at the same time! As with all things associated with the tastemakers at Cold Lunch, the bands on the various bills will all be psych/garage/punk/lo-fi friendly, and this year’s event boasts two venues, three stages, and a staggering 31 performers. In addition, food will be available from Taco Terry’s Tacos and Burritos, plus liquid lights by Silver Cord Cinema and projection art by eNIMAL of The Southern Demon Herd will be displayed at some of the shows.

Speaking of shows, once you get into the nitty gritty of these various stage lineups, you’ll notice some prominent local favorites we’ve covered before, like Daddy Issues, Reality Something, Idle Bloom, Lasso Spells, Sad Baxter, The Medium, Really Nice Guys, Solar Twin, Fever Blush, Keeps, and Diamond Carter, as well was psych rock quintet The Jag, garage Americana rockers Microwave Mountain, scussy punk outfit Butthole, acid pop performers Twen, experimental post-punks Telefones, plus Leggy, Spodee Boy, Pinkest, DancersBoa, Kinhin, Supermelt, Black Moon Mother, Country Westerns, SEXX, Stuyedeyed, Lady Legs, Spirit Week, Flesh Eater, and Lacquer. For just $12, you get access to both venues and all the bands, but keep in mind that while The East Room offers entry for those of you who are 18+, the The Cobra is strictly a 21+ venue.

Music starts at The East Room around 4:15 p.m. and will be raging well into the wee hours of the morning, so pace yourselves people. For a full rundown of who is playing where and when, check out the schedule below. If all this still isn’t enough to get your juices flowing, be sure to click on after the jump to sample most of the bands goods ahead of time. This is going to be one of the best, local-centric, one-day only events of the entire year, so get out there to be part of what makes Music City so wonderfully unique; our underground DIY indie rock scene, and if you’re just getting hip to said scene, consider Spewfest 3 your baptism by fire.

Tickets are still available for Thursday (here), and Saturday (here), but Friday is sold out and we don’t expect the others to be far behind, so snag yours for one or more nights, to help kickstart a new chapter for one of the city’s best bands, and read on for more below!

Sad Baxter Celebrate New 7-inch w/ Reality Something, Big Surr, & TWEN | TONIGHT @ Little Harpeth

SadBaxter2017-620

Since they debuted their self-titled EP in early 2015, we’ve been big fans of local sludgy, grunge pop duo Sad Baxter. From the very first listen, it was obvious they had huge potential, and their fresh but familiar sound is extremely complementary to the ever expanding Nashville underground rock scene. We weren’t the only ones to take notice. Local tastemaking label Cold Lunch Recordings backed their 2016 full-length debut, Weirdy, which they supported with frenetic touring and blow out after blow out local performances. After a summer cross-country run with yet another local buzzworthy indie rock band, The By Gods, SB have been recording some new material, which officially arrived yesterday. This latest 7-inch offering, also with Cold Lunch, features a stellar track they released through NPR entitled “Baby” as the A-side, and the unreleased “Sliver” (an original, not a Nirvana cover) as the B-side.

To celebrate this monumental occasion, the duo will be headlining a very special 21+ record release gig tonight, Nov. 18 at Little Harpeth Brewing, with help from likeminded grunge pop outfit Reality Something, fuzzy garage rockers Big Surr, and acid pop performers TWEN. Music starts at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and you got all this resident talent for just $7 at the door. Copies of the 7-inch were planned to be available as well, but unfortunately faced a problem, so the band will have cassettes instead, and will deliver the vinyl as soon as it’s in, if you want to opt for a $12 admission option that includes the record (it’s also streaming and available to buy online now too). So enjoy some local tunes over some local brews, and get a great sampling of some of the city’s best indie rock!

Sad Baxter, Reality Something, Big Surr, and TWEN will perform tonight, Nov. 18 at Little Harpeth Brewing. The show is 21+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7), and tickets are available to purchase at the door for $7 or $12 with a 7″ included (while supplies last).
