 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!!

Moon Taxi

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 Weeks

This alternative southern-rock band originally from Jackson, Mississippi relocated to Nashville roughly around 2011. Since 2008 they have released either an EP or full-length album every year, in early 2013 The Weeks released their most recent effort Dear Bo Jackson. The weeks have opened for bands such as Kings of Leon, The Meat Puppets, and The North Mississippi Allstars. Their songs are packed full of Southern fueled passion and pride that you will absolutely not want to miss Thursday night. Check out “Brother in the Night”

The Wild Feathers

Coming off of their self-titled debut album, The Wild Feathers are a force to be reckoned with. This Five piece band is sure to blow you away with good old rock and roll fueled by their six strings, and their “four-headed monster” of harmonies. The Wild Feathers, now based in Nashville, have been touring recently with ZZ Ward. In October they will be opening for NEEDTOBREATHE, and in November will be opening for Gary Clark Jr. this is another Nashville band that will be worldwide before we know it. Check out “The Ceiling”

Just because Live on the Green is over doesn’t mean the party has to stop because, remember, Lightning 100 keeps the party going all weekend! Friday afternoon join Wells Adams at Soulshine Pizza on Division for the local artist of the week. Strategically placed during happy hour come on down for drink specials, great pizza, and some homegrown music. After you finish that last bite of pizza grab your guitar and head over to Jed’s Sports Bar for Lightning 100’s writers night. Hosted by Justin Hammel sign ups start at 8 P.M. so come on down and show us that new song you have been working on. Monday is a holiday so we hope to see you at 3rd and Lindsley for Nashville Sunday Night Presents with Phosphorescent and The Lonely Wild. So get off of the couch and out of the house and spend your weekend with, Lightning 100 especially if you like good food and drink, good music, and good people!
