While some folks may be rolling up I-65 for a mini Roo at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival this weekend. There are more amazing local shows than you can imagine this weekend including local fun in a Berry Hill park, a Casio pizza party, local festivals (and local festival announcements), pop, rock, sludge, grunge, twang, and even some killer hip-hop at a ”whorehouse”. Needless to say, it’s another awesome weekend in Nashville. Get out to see some live music.
It’s been quite a week, and this weekend is going to be an absolute blowout of amazing music. We have been telling you about East Nashville Underground all. week. long. If you haven’t bought your tickets for that yet, you’ll have to get there early and hope the remaining tickets aren’t sold out. We also spent some time with Courtney Jaye’s new record, and she has her release party going on over The Stone Fox on Friday night. T. Rust popped onto our radar with his video release of “Houses”, and they are going to be ripping up The End on Friday night. Holla if you remember our write up about the Generationals helping to start this blog, because we did a ticket giveaway for their show over at The High Watt. And, just yesterday, we did a review of that awesome new Hotpipes record Dust too, and those cats are gonna be having their own little release party over at Mercy Lounge on Saturday night too.
See… We’ve been preparing for this weekend all week, but we aren’t even close to finished. We have more festivals, Bonnaroo and Hangout Fest sized bands, and tons more after the jump. Get out and see some live music this weekend.

This weekend probably has a light schedule as far as Nashville goes, but you should still check out some live music if you can.
As Matt already mentioned in his post titled More National Love for the Nashville Rock Scene, the Turbo Fruits are playing their “Butter” record release show at Exit In with Ranch Ghost, King Karl, and Fox Fun. Doors at 8 pm, General Admission $8 if you pre-order or $10 on the day of the show. You can get a ticket and the “Butter” CD for $13 and a ticket and the ”Butter” Vinyl for $18. Get tickets here.
There are some good outdoor music events going on. A slew of artists including Matthew Perryman Jones, Marie Hines, Goodbye June, & The Allen Thompson Band, Effron White (acoustic), Jeff Blaney (acoustic), & Kate Tucker (acoustic) will be playing Musician’s Corner at Centennial Park starting at 3 pm and ending at 6pm. This event is free.
Hacienda is playing a free in-store performance at Grimey’s at 5 pm. See Sunday’s show listing for another Hacienda show.
If you wish to check out some more outdoor music, Luella & The Sun, Wildcub, and Snakeyez will be playing at Sevier Park as part of the 12th South Concert Series from 6pm to 10 pm. Also a free event.
The Lonely H, Quiet Company, Magnolia Sons, Kate Tucker & Michael Shepard are playing the 5 Spot. $5 Cover and starts at 9 pm. The Facebook event page can be found here.
You’ve got the Sunday School weekly music series with Montezuma Fire Machine & Remerra at Exit In. Starts at 7 pm and it’s free.
Also, Hacienda, Teitur and Young Hines are playing at 3rd and Lindsley. Doors at 6 and show starts at 7. Check out Matt’s previous post about winning tickets to the show and a copy of Hacienda’s newest record “Shakedown.” $10 cover. You can also get tickets to the show here.
In the Nashville edition of “I need to clean off my desktop and restart my computer”, we have a Nashville City Guide by Diarrhea Planet, JTB’s TDC, and some videos (The Kingston Springs, Vinyl Thief, The Lonely H, and Vitek) from a recent 8 off 8th at Mercy Lounge. Wow, that is even shorter than I thought it was going to be. Whatever, here we go:
With a name like Diarrhea Planet, I doubt the Economic Development Council is necessarily thrilled about the run down (no pun intended) of Nashville that these local rockers laid out in a recent blog post over at IRR. They waxed the usual stuff that we all deal with on a daily basis here in Nashville. Examples include their frequent encounters an overly amorous Nicole Kidman at Whole Foods, the best date spots, their favorite bands (pretty sure they included anyone who has ever played anywhere near anyone from Infinity Cat), their favorite spots (Dino’s, The Villager, The End, Gabby’s, Bolton’s, Springwater, and…. sigh, McDonalds). Anyway, it’s a funny read, socheck it out.
JEFF the Brotherhood slipped a nip while sipping PBR for their Tiny Desk Concert over at NPR. Last week, the Tiny Desk Concert for Nashville’s “bogus bros” appeared on the podcast list over here. It’s well worth your time, though it isn’t worth my time to figure out how to embed that video on here. (Oh, new web site with easily embeddable videos, when will you be mine). You can swing over to Nashville Cream to watch this totally enjoyable vid.
Local rockers The Kingston Springs have a new video from the 8 off 8th set they did over at Mercy Lounge back in October. You remember me talking about that one don’t you?. TKS sent me a link to this video, and it is cool to see the guys again. That being said, it is a far cry from seeing them live. However, if you didn’t make it out to that show, you can check below to see videos from Strange Bird Media for a lot of the line up (Vinyl Thief, The Lonely H, and Vitek) from that night.
