Live on the Green has come and gone for 2013, and they may have just saved the best for last.  Featuring an all-local bill, last Thursday’s finale was very reminiscent of the first LOTG from 2013, when rain and thunderstorms pounded Nashville for most of the afternoon.  In similar fashion though, the rains passed through minutes before the festivities got going.  We were treated really well this year at LOTG with passes that let us wander and explore all of the different levels of VIP.  For those of you that are able, the upgrade to VIP is definitely worth the little expense.  Something to think about for next year.

Below we have our review of last week’s Live On The Green finale along with a bunch of fantastic photos from Shawn Jackson.

Live on the Green Concludes w/ Moon Taxi, The Weeks, & The Wild Feathers

LiveOnTheGreen2013

We’ve reached the end, my friends. Six weeks of Live on the Green really flew by in  a flash, huh? It feels like we were just telling you about Matt and Kim, ZZ Ward, and Gin Wigmore, but,  in the month and a half since, we’ve covered Matt Nathanson, The Mowgli’s, and Erin McCarley then Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Delta Saints, and Luella & the Sun, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, and Joe Robinson, and, most recently, Local Natives, Leagues, and Lulu Mae.

It’s been perhaps the greatest Live on the Green yet, and we’ll certainly be counting down the days until we get to do it all over again next summer. There have been some amazing local acts on the bill just about every week this year and, fittingly, things will come to a close with three of our favorite Nashville bands: MOON TAXITHE WEEKS, and THE WILD FEATHERS. Per usual, the event is totally free, all ages, rain or shine, and will get started around 6PM. You can still park at Marathon Music Works for $5 and catch a free shuttle to Public Square Park but, once again, there will be no after-party this week.

After the jump, check out a preview of tonight’s acts!

TWiN | This Weekend in Nashville | Aug 2 – 4

While Philip is off running through the wilds of Lollapalooza in Chicago, the rest of us are buckling down here in Music City for another exciting weekend of live music.  We’ve spent a lot of time telling you about tonight’s benefit show for Luella & The Sun over at Mercy Lounge, but there is so much more for you to do this weekend.  Including a total burner of an all day party happening on the West site.  Don’t worry… there’s even more than that for you after the jump, and don’t be too jealous of Philip at Lolla… he’ll bring back some great stories for you next week.  Oh yeah, you see that new banner up there?  That was designed by local graphic designer and artist Holley Maher.  You should treat yourself, and check out Holley’s newest single and video “Golden” before you get into your weekend plan making.

Third Wave of SXSW Artists Announced | Nashville’s Still Reppin’ Hard!

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!
