How does it all come to an end so fast? It feels like Live on the Green’s stacked seventh season just got started, but in the blink of an eye, it has already come to a close, wrapping up a wonderful summer for music and we turn our eyes to the fall. The annual, free fest went out with a bang though, as this year provided the biggest finale in the continually growing event’s history, following weeks of performances from Andra Day, Allen Stone, and White DenimJenny Lewis, Passenger, and JR JR, and Dawes, Kurt Vile, and The Record Company. Per usual, we were there to check it out, and we have a supersized review and photo set of LOTG’s supersized weekend below!

Head to Live On The Green Tonight for Band Of Horses, Nikki Lane, The Wild Feathers, and More!


It’s hard to believe that we have reached the final weekend of Live on the Green.  It seems like just yesterday that we kicked things off with Andra Day, Allen Stone, and White Denim, and have watched the bar continually rise with Jenny Lewis, Passenger, and JR JR. in week two and Dawes, Kurt Vile & the Violators, and The Record Company last week.  Now, we’ve reached the final weekend, and things got off to a bang last night with Young The Giant and BØRNS leading the charge including a pack of talented locals including COIN, SIMO, and *repeat repeat.  Tonight, the lineup grows even more when Band Of Horses lead a hit parade including another stack of locals featuring Nikki Lane, The Wild Feathers, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Rayland Baxter, Josh Farrow, and Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs.

Following the format adopted a couple years back, and expanded last year, Live on the Green will conclude this week with an epic three-day, two-stage Labor Day weekend finale from Thursday Sept. 1 through Saturday Sept. 3.  Per usual, LOTG is free and all ages, and the music tonight will run from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m., and there will be plenty of food and beer vendors on site to meet your needs. Parking is just $5 at the Public Square Park Garage below the festival site, and various other garages and street parking options are available on the surrounding blocks, as well as across the bridge at LP Field. VIP tickets and backstage passes are all sold out for tonight, but there are, as of publishing this, still some packages available for Saturday Sept. 3.

Just a few months after releasing their sophomore album Lonely is a Lifetime, Nashville-based rockers The Wild Feathers made their debut at the Ryman Auditorium to a sold out-crowd. After years of relentless touring and honing their live show, they came back home to check one more huge accomplishment off their band bucket list. Fellow folk-rockers Jamestown Revival also made their first appearance at the venue and kicked off a night that neither band will likely ever forget. Click below to check out our full review, along with some amazing photos from Nolan Knight.

[INTERVIEW] The Wild Feathers Discuss Their New LP, Nashville, and What’s Next


We’ve been raving over the rock and roll sound from The Wild Feathers since they released their stellar self-titled debut back in 2013. After almost three straight years on the road, the group returned to their hometown of Nashville to record their follow-up, Lonely is a Lifetime. We sat down with band members Taylor Burns (guitar/vocals), Ricky Young (guitar/vocals), Joel King (bass/vocals), Ben Dumas (drums), during a rare day off to discuss how much their sound has evolved, what they want to achieve next and the craziness of headlining the Ryman Auditorium for the first time on June 25.  Their Ryman debut is impressively sold out, but get to Grimeys early for your chance to see them perform a special in-store on June 23 at 6pm.
