local-natives-final-small-240

Live On The Green preview is sponsored by Atkinson Remodeling.

Another week another terrific Live on the Green am I right y’all? I sure hope you were there to see Smokin’ Joe Robinson put on a guitar clinic. Followed by some of the hottest soul Nashville has ever seen delivered by none other than St. Paul and The Broken Bones. To wrap the night up Robert Randolph and the Family Band brought the house down and brought all the Nashville ladies he could fit up on stage with him. This week we will stay true to Live on the Green standards and keep the craft beer and food trucks LOCAL. We hope to see all you Nashville NATIVES at Public Square Park again this week. Again bring your friends, bring your dogs, bring the kids, bring that lucky lady or man in your life to the best party in Nashville, this weeks line up is stacked with Nashville greats, and some California boys with the best harmonies west of the Mississippi.

Local Natives

Formed in 2008 in Orange County California, Local Natives have yet to fit a “perfect” mold of a genre. Their sound has been described as “afropop-influenced guitars with hyperactive drumming and hooky three-part harmonies.” Really that description is quite perfect. In 2010 they released their first full-length album, Gorilla Manor and have recently followed it up with their sophomore effort, Hummingbird released in 2013. Speaking from experience, this is a live show that you do not want to miss, clear your schedule because Local Natives is sure to impress if not stun. If you don’t believe me check out their song “Breakers.”
