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.

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.

The Weeks Curate Communion ft. Dan Luke & The Raid, The Medium, Junior Astronomers, & Maddie Medley | TONIGHT @ The Basement

Communion-The Weeks

We’ve had an eye on the beloved Communion series in Nashville for a number of years now.  Started in London in 2006 by members of Bears Den and Mumford and Sons, Communion began as a respectful, creative, and collaborative music showcase to spotlight up and coming artists in an often difficult and competitive environment.  That event has since morphed into an international community with fingers delving into concert promotion, a record label, and publishing, but they remain true to their roots by hosting regular events in a number of cities around the world.

Communion Nashville is mixing up the format a bit this fall in with lineups curated by established artists, and they kick off this experiment  tonight, Sept. 7 with a hand-picked lineup by Nashville rockers The Weeks at The Basement.  The bands include fuzzed out indie rockers Dan Luke & The Raid, who are gearing up for a big fall with the upcoming release of their debut EP and a tour supporting The Weeks in the works.  Retro psych outfit The Medium just dropped a new album of demos and miscellaneous recordings, titled It’s Lit, today (steam it on Spotify here), and will be using tonight’s show as a release show to showcase the new tunes.  Junior Astronomers are no strangers to the Nashville scene, who have been showcasing their guitar driven indie rock to Music City for a few years now, and are longtime friends of  The Weeks. They dropped an impressive new LP, Body Language, earlier this summer, and it is chock full of high energy, nostalgia inducing, riff packed tracks that are worth consideration for best local album of the year.  Rising pop-tinged alt rocker Maddie Medley is set to kick off the event.

You can head below to sample music from each of the acts, and head here to get your $8 advance tickets ($10 at the door).  It’s worth the effort to get there on time too, as The Weeks, though not slated to perform, are emceeing the event, and will be spinning records between sets to keep you in the spirit.

The Weeks curate Communion Nashville featuring Dan Luke And The Raid, The Medium, Junior Astronomers, and Maddie Medley will perform tonight, Sept. 7, at The Basement. The show is 21+, begins at 9:30 p.m. (doors at 9 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $8-10.
