Sounds Like Summer Review

As Nashville enters the dog days of summer, it seems as if the only escape from the sweltering heat is an unexpected torrential downpour. While both of these unpleasant weather sensations occurred outside of the Cannery Complex on Friday and Saturday, patrons of Nashville Cream’s Sounds Like Summer 7th birthday bash were protected from the elements and serenaded by 27 local bands and DJs at all three venues. While the Cannery Ballroom provided a stage for veteran local bands like The Features and the Whigs, the High Watt offered performances from promising up and coming acts like What Up English and Majestico. While it was impossible to catch all of the bands playing this weekend, spontaneous venue hopping made for a frantic and exciting concert experience that could only happen in a city with a music scene as vibrant and exciting as Nashville.

Although they were added to the line-up a mere four hours before the doors opened, What Up, English were the perfect band to kick off night one of Sounds Like Summer. These dudes are constantly referred to as the youngsters of the Nashville music scene, which does them an incredible disservice. Their relentlessly upbeat and infectious dance rock is the result of honing their craft for years. Preston and Noah’s guitar work intertwined with each other seamlessly and effortlessly while Rob and Jamie laid it down on the bass and drums with machine like precision. Southern drawl and old school country influences may be the new “it factor” for Nashville bands, but What Up English have been kicking out dance grooves for longer than Nashville has been the “it city”.
