We’ve spent a lot of time telling you about some of the great upcoming shows that are happening tonight in Nashville already. We gave away tickets for Youth Lagoon and Majical Cloudz over at Mercy Lounge. Communion Nashville has another stellar lineup over at The Basement tonight. And, if you are lucky enough to be heading over to Cannery tonight for the Jim James show, you should probably just stop reading right here, because we know exactly how incredible that show is going to be.
Still reading? Great. Let’s run through the rest of the great shows going on around town tonight. We have some solid rock n’ roll, some fun synth pop tunes that will blow your socks off, and a side project for an artist with one of the most impressive resumes we’ve seen in a long time.
We have really gotten to know COIN at Mercy Lounge and East Nashville Underground over the past few months. Well, good news COIN fans, they are releasing a new EP titled 1992, and tonight is the release party over at 12th & Porter. You can have a listen to the first single “Atlas” below, and you can download it for free over at Noise Trade. Things get started around 8pm with opening sets by Keeps and, recent Woody Award winners, The Lonely Biscuits. You can snag your tickets for that one here.
If you are looking for something a bit more ethereal, then I would strongly suggest braving the parking calamity on Cannery Row tonight for Deep Sea Diver. Lead singer Jessica Dobson has worked as a side-woman for Beck, as the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s first bass player, and most recently backing up The Shins. You know a woman like that isn’t going to slouch into a solo project. You can check out the video for “NWO” below. Things get started with local faves Forget Cassettes around 9pm, and tickets are still available right here.
If you need psych rock in your life, like I know so many of you do. You should head out to see Seattle (by way of Texas) rockers Night Beats over at The End. Night Beats draw pretty well around these parts, and, for good reason, we have lots of kids that love to rock the eff out around here. Add, recent Road To Bonnaroo winners, Ranch Ghost, to the equation, and I would imagine this will be a sweaty, fun room of PBR toting crazies. You can check out the bad ass Night Beats video for “Shadows In The Night” below. Things get started with another solid Nashville rock group Promised Land, so get there early and stay out LAAAATE!!!! Tickets are $7 right here.
