Puscifer plays out of this world show in Nashville

Formed in 1995, Puscifer began as just another idea in the imagination of Maynard James Keenan. While the founder of Tool and A Perfect Circle is predominantly known for those projects, there is something strange and amazing about his side project known as Puscifer. It wasn’t until 2009 that the band formally began playing shows, […]

The Mysterines send fans ‘Reeling’ at Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville

It’s been nearly eight years since the inception of what would now be one of the hottest rock bands in the world, The Mysterines. Formed during their formative teenage years, Lia Metcalfe, George Favager, and Callum Thompson stumbled upon that perfect mixture of musical ingredients that so many seem to strive for, yet rarely attain. […]

The Black Angels gets trippy in Nashville

It was another beautiful fall night in Nashville as I headed downtown to the best venue in the music city, the Brooklyn Bowl. The anticipation I felt going into this evening was at an all-time high as two of my favorite bands would be performing, The Vacant Lots and The Black Angels. The Vacant Lots […]

Narcotic Wasteland slays in Nashville

It was a cool fall evening as I headed downtown to experience a night of head-banging and devil horns, since Narcotic Wasteland had made their way into Nashville for a stop on the German metal legends accept’s Too Mean to Die national tour. Narcotic Wasteland made their first appearance on the metal scene as a […]

Banks’ elaborately beautiful performance in Nashville

I did something the other night that I haven’t done since Usher went on tour with Kanye West almost 20 years ago — I attended a show that featured a lineup of nothing but pop musicians. It’s not as if I haven’t seen the occasional Katy Perry here and there, but it’s typically at a […]

Nothing More destroys Marathon Music Works, Nashville

It’s been quite a while since I have been to a show that was predominantly heavy… my last experience being Opeth last year at Ryman Auditorium. It’s not as if I don’t enjoy the genre, but as I get older, I find my body simply cannot handle the head-banging and moshing as much as it […]

Foxy Shazam stimulates Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl

It was another midweek show for me, as I headed into Nashville to my favorite music venue. Upon first glances, it seemed as if it was going to be a laidback and quiet night at the Brooklyn Bowl. I arrived 30 minutes prior to showtime and the venue wasn’t even a quarter full; it was […]

Experiencing Nashville’s first Eastside Boogie

This past October, an amazing new venue opened in Nashville in the form of the Eastside Bowl. Formerly a K-Mart, this retro-style venue prides itself on its vintage 1970s aesthetic. Not only does it have the coolest bowling alley in town, but it also houses an arcade, filled with a collection of old-school games and […]

James Arthur & Nina Nesbitt get Nashville singing

James Arthur did not disappoint fans at his sold-out show at Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom. The 2012 X Factor UK winner played a well-rounded setlist that was sure to please every one of his concertgoers’ setlist wishlists. Nina Nesbitt opened the show solo and played a mix of songs on keys and guitar. Nesbitt showed her […]

The HU helps close out Nashville’s iconic Cannery Ballroom

It’s not a well-known fact to anyone outside of the Nashville music scene, but a legacy is coming to an end shortly in the Music City: rock scene venue staples Mercy Lounge, The High Watt and Cannery Ballroom are all closing for good. While it is unclear if owners will ever reopen in a new […]

Kishi Bashi concludes tour at Basement East Nashville

Kishi Bashi is not what you would consider a ‘household’ name in the music industry. He isn’t sharing stages with the likes of Billie Eilish, but he has created his own rabid fanbase during his many years performing. Once a member of the band Of Montreal, Kishi Bashi now has the distinct honor of having […]

The Darkness rocks Nashville like never before

I walked into my favorite Nashville venue — the Brooklyn Bowl — on a recent Friday evening, not truly knowing what to expect from the upcoming night of music. I was there to see The Darkness and local favorites, The Dead Deads. The latter all-girl grunge rock group is widely considered to be one of […]
