Things got pretty fucking heavy for Fuzz last Tuesday night at Mercy Lounge. The room was packed to the gills, the tunes were loud & shreddy, plus, thanks to opener Walter, we all got a full night of seriously awesome live music for well under $20. If you missed out, or you just want to relive one of the best shows of the year in Music City, read on for a full recap … and don’t miss a great photo spread from contributing photographer Jake Giles Netter.

Ty Segall Announces New LP, Feb. 22 Show at Mercy Lounge

Ty Segall2014-620

Prolific west coast rocker Ty Segall just played Mercy Lounge last night with Fuzz, one his many side projects that have become so numerous we can barely keep count, but, already, the acclaimed artist has announced a return to the same spot, this time in support of his solo work, on Feb. 22. Along with the news of his Nashville return, Segall has also detailed plans for his eighth album (not counting efforts with other projects and many, many splits, EPs, etc) Emotional Mugger, due out Jan. 22 via Drag City. Seems we’ll have to wait a tad longer for a taste of new music, but head here for a weird promotional video, check out a favorite older tune below, and grab your tickets here beginning Friday, Nov. 13 at 10 a.m. CST.

Ty Segall’s Fuzz Announce New Record Ahead of Nashville Show @ Mercy Lounge


Cult followed, psychedelic, garage rock shredder Ty Segall has reunited with his band Fuzz to release the power trio’s second record, a double disc at that, aptly entitled II, due out October 23rd (pre-order digitally here) on In The Red records. Seagall, a multi-instrumentalist best known for his solo body of work, where he destroyers listeners’ ear drums on guitar/vocals, is actually the drummer for Fuzz, with Charles Moothart (guitar) and Chad Ubovich (bass) filling out the line-up. All three share vocal responsibilities on what promises to be one of the best releases of 2015.

If this wasn’t enough good news out of Fuzz’s camp, the band is embarking on a massive international tour this fall, which will make it’s Music City stop Saturday November 10th at Mercy Lounge. Tickets go on sale this Friday, and you better jump on them, because the last time Segall played Mercy (read this post) it sold out. The rowdy show was picked by us as one of the best of 2014, and we expect nothing less this go ‘round. Fuzz has released two tasty tracks from the new record, “Rat Race” and  “Pollinate,” which you can check out below.
