Local bands Sol Cat and Kansas Bible Company collaborate to cover “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney. It looks like a pretty fun Christmas party….that we were not invited to.
Nobody throws a party like Lightning 100! This time we are getting some help from all out our friends down here in Marathon Village for the first Marathon Village Engine Block Party coming to you on Friday, October 18th. We are bringing all things music, performance, food, and art to our nick of the woods to show off some of Nashville’s most creative and eclectic businesses including Marathon Music Works, Corsair Artisan Distillery, The Bang Candy Company, Garage Coffee, 5 Points Digital Imaging and of course Lightning 100, Nashville’s independent radio. Use promo code L100 for 10.01 tickets!
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have two stages for this event, yes, that is right TWO! On the outdoor stage we have the raw energy and soul of the Los Angeles based Vintage Trouble, the Redbull sound select artist coming from Athens, Georgia The Futurebirds, the eleven-piece band from Nashville Kansas Bible Company, and those funky boys from Murfreesboro. DeRobert & The Half Truths.
Inside Marathon Music Works will be the dance extravaganza with performances by Heroes & Villains, Future Unlimited, Five Knives, Noise Floor, Aerial Performances and more! Do you remember all of those delicious food trucks we wrangled up for the Live on the Green concert series? Well, we are sure that you will recognize many of the same food trucks at the indoor, yes INDOOR, food-truck-food-court inside of Marathon Music Works.
Marathon Village is certainly the place to be on Friday, October 18th at 5pm the whole village will be out to party with you! The Marathon Village Engine Block Party will showcase this “best kept secret” of the city, so come on down and get acquainted with the hottest new neighborhood in Nashville, Marathon Village
Vintage Trouble formed in 2010 out of the ashes of a few other bands, and not by chance, Ty Taylor (vocal) and Nalle Colt (guitar) teamed up with drummer Richard Danielson and bassist Rick Barrio Dill. They entered The Bomb Shelter Studio, recorded an album’s worth of material in three days, which was intended to be demos and ended up being pressed into CDs. The Bomb Shelter Sessions became Vintage Trouble’s first album. Selling it at their gigs was easy and not surprisingly so were the calls to feature their music in several commercial media.
With a unified decision to stay in Los Angeles to build their musical foundation as a band, weekly residences in the area lead to a large assembly of fans in a short amount of time. These fans became known as the “TroubleMakers.” It was that underground buzz that lead to legendary manager Doc McGhee taking notice and signing Vintage Trouble to his roster after hearing only a single chorus. Doc’s first order of business became breaking the band in England, right away. Their first venture overseas resulted in a similar groundswell with Music Weekly naming them 2011 Breakout Artist of the Year and HMV hailing them as their “Next Big Thing.”
Congratulations to Roots for Rebellion for winning the 2012 Music City Mayhem. Next time we see the guys they will be on stage at Live On the Green performing for thousands of fans! We want to say a special thanks to Kansas City Bible Company, Hot Mess and Billy Swayze for being apart of the contest.
