Who knows how to party, Lightning 100 know how to party. Lightning 100 presented Spring Block Party at Marathon Music Works. The Spring Block Party is a celebration of the new season featuring music, performance, food, and art that will be curated & brought to you by some of the people who give our great city the flavor & feel you’ll experience at our event.
The Spring Block Party will host an outdoor stage featuring performances by some of Nashville’s favorite local bands: The Wild Feathers, The Apache Relay, Sol Cat, Roots of a Rebellion, & Matt Walberg & The Living Situation. The Spring Block Party also featured From Nashville With Love marketplace, an indoor market of local, handmade, and vintage goods! Check out photos from the show!
Live On The Green preview is sponsored by Atkinson Remodeling.
In reference to last weeks Live on the Green I’ve heard phrases such as, “Largest Live on the Green crowd ever.” If it wasn’t the largest crowd that was being talked about it was the massive LCD screen that was put up so even the people down on Broadway honky-tonkin’ could see what Lulu Mae, Leagues, and Local Natives were delivering. Nashville, we have done it again! For the past five weeks local Nashville and nationally known artists have brought us all together on Thursday nights for some local brew, good food, and good times. Here at Lightning 100 we hope you all have had a terrific Live on the Green season and will join us for the final blowout down in Public Square Park this Thursday at 6 P.M. Come on down early to grab a beer, a spot on the lawn, and to sign up to win V.I.P. tickets among many other prizes at the Lightning 100 tent! It’s the last Live on the Green of the season so we hope to see you all there!!
Formed in 2006 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, Moon Taxi, the inaugural Music City Mayhem Contest winners, have been playing festivals and touring around with such acts as Gov’t Mule, Umphrey’s McGee, Matisyahu, and The Apache Relay. With two studio albums, Melodica and Cabaret, and one live-album, Live Ride, recorded at Nashville’s 12th and Porter it’s needless to say that Moon Taxi has been busy. With their third studio album set to release September 10, 2013 it is a perfect time for them to be headlining this weeks Live on the Green. Their sound has been described as, “roots-rhythms, Latin-ismo, Phishy riffs, complex fusion and gutbucket, blue collar rock into a pretty enjoyable ball they hurl with serious gusto.” Lightning 100 is very proud to have Nashville’s own Moon Taxi wrap up this Live on the Green series, make sure to be there to catch it!
The Wild Feathers perform “The Ceiling” and ” Left My Woman” live in the WRLT studio. Support your favorite locals by sharing this post!
After cleaning all of the sand out of our camera lenses, tripods, computers(some how), and other places we don’t care to mention, Lightning 100 is able to start posting our backstage performances at 2013 Hangout Music Fest. Nashville artists were definitely representing at the festival this year performing at small/major stages and even the shuttle buses. The Nashville lineup included Moon Taxi, The Kingston Springs, Chancellor Warhol, The Weeks, Luella and the Sun, Josh Farrow, Wild Cub, The Wild Feathers, and a few others that were just enjoying the festival. Click here to check out photos from the festival! We’ve got more backstage performances coming!
