Nashville Sunday Night Presents: Alanna Royale with DeRobert & The Half-Truths @ 3rd and Lindsley
Apr 5 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

alannaroyaleAlanna Royale combines the best elements of rock, pop, funk and soul, all executed by their fearless leader and sensual vocalist, Alanna Quinn-Broadus, an unparalleled rhythm section – Jared Colby on guitar, Gabriel Golden on bass and Matt Snow on drums – and a tremendously talented two-piece horn section – Kirk Donovan on trumpet and Diego Vasquez on trombone.

Without a single recorded song, Alanna Royale was able to obtain an impressive fan base and a reputation solely because of their unforgettable live performances. In January of 2013, the band released its debut EP, Bless Her Heart, which led to sold-out shows across Nashville and prompted Mike Grimes, owner of the world famous Grimey’s to declare them, “the next big thing.

The band’s vivacious and soulful live shows have catapulted Alanna Royale onto the music scene. And now, thanks to their impressive fanbase and reputation, Alanna Royale’s, ACHILLES, is posed to skyrocket them to superstardom.

Recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, the album was engineered and produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), and features a revolving door of local talent including members of Los Colognes, Fly Golden Eagle and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Alanna Royale shines bright by marrying smooth, retro roots with dirty Rock n’ Roll attitude. Since the release of Bless Her Heart, the band has shared the stage with some of Nashville’s finest, and made appearances at Bonaroo, Austin City Limits, East Nashville Underground and Music City Roots. They’ve been featured in Garden & Gun and Nashville Lifestyles and on NPR.

6 members, 5 beards, 2 horns, 1 lady. get into it.

Nashville Sunday Night Presents: Ben Miller Band @ 3rd and Lindsley
Apr 12 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

benmiller“I like the idea of saying something very complicated in a very simple way,” says Ben Miller, discussing the trio that bears his name. “That’s what we strive for musically, and what I strive for lyrically—to get directly to the point and save the flowery b.s. for the romantic poets. John Sargent, the painter, said ‘That which is not necessary is detrimental,’ and we try to live by that.”

Since its formation in 2004, the Ben Miller Band has staked out a singular niche that’s established the Joplin, Missouri threesome as both a potent creative force and a perennial fan favorite. Any Way, Shape or Form, the BMB’s New West debut release, showcases the seasoned threesome’s fierce creative spirit and infectious performing chemistry, as well as Miller’s melodically catchy, lyrically resonant songwriting.

On Any Way, Shape or Form, the Ben Miller Band channels a century’s worth of wide-ranging influences into 13 new songs that radiate with energy, smarts and soul. The result is music that’s wholly contemporary, while ringing with ages-old echoes of bluegrass, delta blues, Appalachian mountain music and more. A stew they lovingly call “ozark stomp.”

The Ben Miller Band’s homespun, self-reliant approach extends to the lo-tech, and largely self-built, instruments that the members play on stage and in the studio, e.g. singer-songwriter Miller’s thrift-shop guitars and banjos, bassist Scott Leeper’s one-string washtub bass – comprised of a weedeater string attached to a wooden pole – and Doug Dicharry’s varied arsenal: trombone, trumpet, mandolin, electric washboard and electric spoons.

The band’s use of offbeat instrumentation, however, shouldn’t be misunderstood as a gimmick. Instead, the three bandmates have mastered the technical challenges of their unconventional axes to produce a uniquely evocative ensemble sound that offers a compelling frame for Miller’s compositions.

“Our plan,” Leeper says, “is to just get out there and play for as many people as we can. That’s pretty much been our plan all along, and it’s worked for us so far.”

“The title Any Way, Shape or Form is sort of our way of saying that by any means necessary we will make the music that makes sense to us,” Miller explains. “That’s always been our attitude, and that’s how we’ve gotten to where we are and how we will get to where we are going.”

COMMUNION NASHVILLE APRIL CLUB NIGHT

featuring Hey Rosetta!, Kevin Garrett, Jeffery James, and Soft White Sixties

Hey Rosetta!

→ Official Website

Hey Rosetta!’s 2011 album, Seeds was nominated for a Juno and shortlisted for the Polaris prize. After three years of touring Seeds, the St. John’s locals met with producer Marcus Paquin to discuss what was to become of the band’s fourth LP, Second Sight. They eventually tracked in Montreal with a clutch of new songs written by frontman Tim Baker – some of them road tested in front of live audiences. But there was no over-arching theme. The time on the road touring Seeds was long – around the US five times, Australia twice, Europe four times, and the vast expansive Canadian highways which inspired some of the concepts on Seeds created a distance between the songwriter and what was to become Second Sight. Hey Rosetta! chose to sail into new waters, to experiment with fresh, contemporary sounds while remaining true to its musical heart. They spent a year in the studio off-and-on and the result is their most expansive work yet – Second Sight will be available in North America on October 21st, 2014

Kevin Garrett

Jeffrey James

→ Official Site

Jeffrey James sings a lot like he talks–a little bit lower and more robust than you’d expect.

When it comes right down to it, Jeffrey doesn’t sing and his band doesn’t play. Once he hits the first note, it’s easy to see that Jeffrey loves to perform. Powerful lead vocals come standard with a collection of kids who have rhythm in their hands and their feet. No really, they move on stage and it just feels right.

Whether it’s a simple ballad or a full out rock song, energy, excitement, and little bit of sweat can be expected from start to end. Oh, and in case you like eye candy, tailored jackets, trimmed beards, delicious curves, and sexy instruments cover all bases of desire.

In true Nashville fashion, Jeffrey is also a songwriter. A few folks refer to him as “the hook guy” because, well, he pumps out great melodies on command. His songs have been used by brands like H&M and Gibson Guitars, and featured on TV shows like ABC’s Nashville, CMT’s Party Down South, MTV’s Finding Carter, and more.

Bottom line, good voice + good music + good people = great show. Mic drop.

Nashville Sunday Night Presents: Kitty, Daisy & Lewis @ 3rd and Lindsley
Apr 19 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

kittydaisylewisKitty, Daisy & Lewis return with their first new album in three years since their acclaimed Smoking In Heaven. On Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third, themes of fresh adulthood and lost loves run throughout. With the enlisted help of legendary Clash guitarist, Mick Jones, as producer, KD&L recorded The Third in their self-constructed, 16-track analogue studio in a derelict Indian restaurant in Camden Town. “With Mick on board, it was the first time we have worked with a producer,” says Lewis, “Just having someone else in the room meant we could start bouncing ideas off other people and that was great.”

London siblings Kitty, Daisy & Lewis Durham are talented songwriters and musicians, whose musical background is rooted in the tradition where songs are handed down and performed at family gatherings, playing any instrument they lay their hands on. From a young age Kitty, Daisy & Lewis have been inspiring audiences with their unique stage show and eclectic musical selections rooted in a history of story telling.

Nashville Sunday Night is sponsored by New Amsterdam Vodka and Goose Island Beer.

Nashville Repertory Theatre’s production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang.

Enter their sister, fading movie star Masha, who plans to sell the family home and put Sonia and Vanya out to pasture. Toss in Masha’s brand-new 20-something boy-toy Spike, a cleaning woman cursed with the power of prophecy and a neighborhood costume party that turns everything upside down, and the stage is set for one hilarious weekend in the country.

Nashville Sunday Night Presents: Ray Wylie Hubbard @ 3rd and Lindsley
Apr 26 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

raywyliehubbard
When it comes to down ’n’ dirty roots ’n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard. Except, it seems, for Hubbard himself. After riding a decade-long career resurgence into the national spotlight with 2012’s acclaimed The Grifter’s Hymnal and his first ever appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman (“I didn’t want to peak too soon,” quips Hubbard, 68), the iconoclastic Texas songwriter is back to continue his hot streak with The Ruffian’s Misfortune — his 16th album (and third on his own Bordello Records, via Thirty Tigers) — due out April 7, 2015.

Nashville Sunday Night is sponsored by New Amsterdam Vodka and Goose Island Beer.

ABOUT TRAVELER BEER CO

The Traveler Beer Company is Team Green’s official Social Sponsor, offering one of the most refreshing beer styles in the world– the Shandy– pushing the boundaries on what a shandy can be. The shandy tradition dates back to the 17th century and features beer mixed with a citrus-flavored soda or carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale or cider. Today, English publicans pour a blend of traditional English ale with various lemon and lime beverages for their patrons, though real lemons or limes are rarely used.

The Traveler Beer Co’s flagship brew, The Curious Traveler, is a fresh, bold year-round, craft-brewed all malt-wheat ale infused with real lemons and limes. This shandy has a lively fruity flavor and a powerful “throw your head back” fresh lemon aroma. Also try the Illusive Traveler (grapefruit) the Forbidden Traveler (apple ale), and seasonal favorites like the Jack-O Traveler and Jolly Traveler.

Mmmmm. Refreshing!

Share your love with Traveler on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, or travel to any of these fine Nashville Area locations serving Travel Beer new you.

We hope you have a wonderful experience at this year’s 1st annual Ink-N-Iron Festival-Nashville.

 

OUR HISTORY

With the success of the 2003 Long Beach Tattoo Convention – the second to be held aboard the Queen Mary – it propelled Long Beach to a central position in the tattoo world. The throngs of visitors that have come aboard the Queen Mary since then, sends a very clear message on the extent of the event which will be even better and more enthralling this year. It couldn’t be otherwise, considering that Long Beach was the tattoo cultural engine of the West Coast, the center around which technique and trends evolved. Long Beach was the home of Bert Grimm’s World Famous Tattoo, the longest operating tattoo shop in America 1927-2003. From this tiny shop on the Nu Pike in Long Beach Bert Grimm fostered a culture that influenced today’s godfathers of the American Tattoo industry; names like Ed Hardy, Bob Roberts, Lyle Tuttle, Col. Todd, Bob Shaw, and Phil Simms to name a few. Bert Grimm’s was a place where, if you knew the right guy you could obtain the most sacred of tools; the tattoo machine, these pieces of equipment were not available to just anyone. In marrying the city’s tattoo history with a 1930’s luxury ship the Queen Mary, with her WWII service history, there couldn’t be a more perfect setting to perform this sacred art form. The idea of organizing a tattoo convention in Long Beach stems from the desire to pay a tribute to the great tattoo art tradition. This tradition contributed to spread this art all over the world, pulling it out of the Middle Ages. We feature 280 artists from many different States and Countries representing all the tattoo styles pricking away with their machines in an exciting atmosphere, where a car show and music become an integral part of the event, mingling with the artistic expressions of the artists at work. Tattoos can be a passion and an art form, for most people a very popular fashion trend, which exploded a few years ago thanks to advertisements, fashion and music bands which use tattoo icons for messages that underline the freedom of choice of each individual. This festival is an event that draws lots of different visitors, something very few events can boast. Many love tattoos and travel around the world to take part in tattoo conventions, because it is a time in which this art is experienced on one’s own skin and, it is difficult not to be affected by the unique atmosphere that makes tattoos a very familiar and easy form of art.

Tomato Art Fest @ East Nashville 5 Points
Aug 7 all-day

 

TAF22.png

The Tomato Art Fest was founded by Meg and Bret MacFadyen, owners of East Nashville’s Art and Invention Gallery. In 2004, the gallery hosted an art show celebrating the tomato in late summer, and planned a few neighborhood events to promote the show. The Tomato Art Fest proved so popular that it immediately turned into an annual, signature event for the hip, urban neighborhood of East Nashville.

TAF21.png

A community builder, The Tomato Art Fest has steadily drawn larger crowds with each year that passes. Last year, an estimated 35,000 came to celebrate this beloved fruit/vegetable and enjoy the day’s festivities.

Touted in the Oxford American, and Southern Living,The Tomato Art Fest was voted “Best Festival” in the 2007, 2008, and 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Nashville Scene Reader’s Polls

TAF20.png

The Tomato Art Fest will return this year on  Friday August 8th and Saturday August 9, 2014 for it’s 11th year! Located in Historic East Nashville’s Five Points, which has been coined byBudget Travel Magazine as “Nashville’s version of New York’s East Village,” this FREE, costume-friendly event provides a fun-filled day for all.

People are here for the love of Hot Rods-Kustom Cars, Live Music, Burlesque, Art Show, 20’s-50’s Fashion, and of course the World Renowned Tattoo Convention; taking place on the floor of the Municipal Auditorium. 280 of the best tattoo artists in the world will be on hand from 30 States and 25 Countries representing all the tattoo styles; where a car show and music become an integral part of the event, mingling with the artistic expressions of the artists at work. Pinups clad in corsets, Classic Cats with Pompadours, Mohawks, fashion Mullets with full sleeves and back pieces. Not only is the breathtaking view of the Capitol building; built in 1859, a majestic sight sitting atop the hill, mixed among the amazing Nashville skyline, its quite a task to take in all at once.

 

Besides taking advantage of the festival to get a tattoo from a great artist, the organizers are very attentive to the entertainment of all those who chose to spend three days in the tattoo scenario – 5 stages will showcase the weekends bands, cabaret shows, tattoo contest, and pin-up pageant while the Bicentennial Mall will be decorated with America’s finest Iron dressed in period perfect style. Tattoos will stand out not only on skin but also on canvases, paper and photos, through an exhibition able to give an enhanced artistic value to the exhibition.

 

We hope you have a wonderful experience at this year’s 1st annual Ink-N-Iron Festival-Nashville.

 

OUR HISTORY

With the success of the 2003 Long Beach Tattoo Convention – the second to be held aboard the Queen Mary – it propelled Long Beach to a central position in the tattoo world. The throngs of visitors that have come aboard the Queen Mary since then, sends a very clear message on the extent of the event which will be even better and more enthralling this year. It couldn’t be otherwise, considering that Long Beach was the tattoo cultural engine of the West Coast, the center around which technique and trends evolved. Long Beach was the home of Bert Grimm’s World Famous Tattoo, the longest operating tattoo shop in America 1927-2003. From this tiny shop on the Nu Pike in Long Beach Bert Grimm fostered a culture that influenced today’s godfathers of the American Tattoo industry; names like Ed Hardy, Bob Roberts, Lyle Tuttle, Col. Todd, Bob Shaw, and Phil Simms to name a few. Bert Grimm’s was a place where, if you knew the right guy you could obtain the most sacred of tools; the tattoo machine, these pieces of equipment were not available to just anyone. In marrying the city’s tattoo history with a 1930’s luxury ship the Queen Mary, with her WWII service history, there couldn’t be a more perfect setting to perform this sacred art form. The idea of organizing a tattoo convention in Long Beach stems from the desire to pay a tribute to the great tattoo art tradition. This tradition contributed to spread this art all over the world, pulling it out of the Middle Ages. We feature 280 artists from many different States and Countries representing all the tattoo styles pricking away with their machines in an exciting atmosphere, where a car show and music become an integral part of the event, mingling with the artistic expressions of the artists at work. Tattoos can be a passion and an art form, for most people a very popular fashion trend, which exploded a few years ago thanks to advertisements, fashion and music bands which use tattoo icons for messages that underline the freedom of choice of each individual. This festival is an event that draws lots of different visitors, something very few events can boast. Many love tattoos and travel around the world to take part in tattoo conventions, because it is a time in which this art is experienced on one’s own skin and, it is difficult not to be affected by the unique atmosphere that makes tattoos a very familiar and easy form of art.

The Tomato Art Fest was founded by Meg and Bret MacFadyen, owners of East Nashville’s Art and Invention Gallery. In 2004, the gallery hosted an art show celebrating the tomato in late summer, and planned a few neighborhood events to promote the show. The Tomato Art Fest proved so popular that it immediately turned into an annual, signature event for the hip, urban neighborhood of East Nashville.

The dragons are coming! Get ready for the 9th Annual Cumberland River Compact Dragon Boat Festival, Nashville’s premiere river event.

On Saturday, September 12, 2015, at Riverfront Park, you can take the ride of your life with 50 teams on the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville right in front of LP Field. Thousands of spectators will join you in a large viewing area where they can cheer paddlers, support the advocacy work of the Cumberland River Compact, and celebrate the long tradition of dragon boat racing with a cultural festival unlike any other in Music City.

All of the festivities are within walking distance to the city’s top restaurants, souvenir shops, and downtown Music City attractions. Bring the whole family and plan on spending the day.

Dragon boat racing is one of the fastest growing sport in the world and, without a doubt, the most fun, unique cultural event you’ll experience, thanks to its adrenaline-pumping action. Dragon boat racing grows in popularity each year, with more than 50 million people in 63 countries participating. Teams of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steersperson race in authentic Hong Kong-style, 46-foot-long dragon boats. All ages, skill levels and physiques can paddle and compete, making it the ultimate team building sport, requiring synchronicity and finesse, more than power to win.

Find out why you can’t miss this event. Bring your Team. Bring your Spirit. Bring your best.
