As part of the 36/86 (previously Southland) event, Lightning 100 and the conference celebrating the Southeast’s southern culture, technology and entrepreneurship are bringing some free jams for all to enjoy. Blog favorites Turbo Fruits and *repeat repeat are playing Marathon Music Works tonight at 8pm, and, if this event is anything like last year, then you should expect an evening filled with tech and other cool visuals as garnishment for your music. If you want to find out more about the 36 / 86 event (36 and 86 are the latitude and longitude of Nashville, in case you were wondering), head to their website. If you want to find out more about the bands, head below.
Local rockers, Turbo Fruits, are long time No Country favorites. The loud party rockers are known for their insanely raucous live shows, and their newest effort No Control has garnered them much due acclaim. We’ve brought you quite a few releases, including “The Way I Want You“, “No Reason To Stay”, and “Don’t Let Me Break Your Heart Again” in advance of the official album release on April 20th. The fellas have spent quite a bit of time on the road in support of the new record, but any chance to see them (especially a free chance) should not be missed. Get in the mood with another showing of “Don’t Let Me Break Your Heart Again” below.
Nashville’s *repeat repeat have been friends with No Country since before they were a band, but that doesn’t effect our feelings about their music in the slightest. Their brand of upbeat poppy, sometimes sunkissed surf style, rock stands out in Music City, but it’s not for genre alone. It’s about strong writing, and upbeat arrangements that are almost impossible not to at least tap a toe too. As a follow up to their 2014 release, Bad Latitude, they just recently released a new single “Mostly”, which likely means that we’ll have new music on the horizon soon.
Turbo Fruits and *repeat repeat will perform tonight (June 8, 2015) at Marathon Music Works. The show is 18+, begins at 8pm (doors at 7pm), and it is FREE!
