New Murfreesboro Venue, The Grind Coffeehouse

The Kiss of Death

So it’s official, Friday the 13th is bad luck. MEEMAW will be headlining at The End and then calling it quits. After releasing only one record, Glass Elevator (on Infinity Cat Records), the band has decided they can’t continue working together. It sucks but you have one last chance to see them rock. See you there.

The Forks Are on the Hunt

So the shit’s already started on this one. With the Fork Hunts show coming up people are pumped, people are pissed and others just want to have a good fucking time. The Fork Hunts only play about twice a year and will not play without getting a reaction. Here’s a taste of the action from the Nashville Cream blog:

“Yeah… the ugliest bitch joke of a band EVER needs a practice space. I have the room ladies but I’m locking my door to no talent hacks who only get to play because of who their friends are and because they dress like sluts.”

“Wait is this an all-girl PREGNANT punk rock band? What the eff is going on?”

“the question is have you guys heard them?? They are all pretty nice but they are terrible. ”

Jordan Lehning of Eureka Gold said it best…. and may all of Nashville listen to the truth in this:

“yes we’ve heard them
yes they are fucking awful 
but they are one of the best bands to see live
it’s a total spectacle and they know it
they love it
it’s like laughing at your farts”



correction: it’s 18 and up

Darla Farmer on NPR

With an album release less than a month away, the Nashville Carnival-rock outfit, Darla Farmer, is beginning to see some illustrious recognition – starting off this week with a cut on one of last week’s airing of NPR’s “All Songs Considered” program.

With a growing audience of more than 26 million Americans each week in partnership with more than 860 independently operated, non-commercial public radio stations, NPR and All Songs Considered will no doubt launch a new platform of listeners and fans across the nation for Darla Farmer.

Check it out here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=99866524

Darla Farmer releases its full-length album, “Rewiring The Electric Forest” on February 17th and its full-length remix album, “Remixing The Electric Forest” shortly there-after, which will appear as an iTunes feature!

The Ettes to open up for Kings of Leon

These lucky bastards are getting ready to go on a European tour opening up for Kings of Leon. They haven’t been in Nashville for more than six months since they moved from L.A. and they’re already moving on to some big shit. I spin these guys a lot on my radio show so I’m happy for them and just hope they come back when they’re done. I especially respect that they’ve been participating in the local music scene here in Nashville. Groups like Kings of Leon skipped the plight of the local indie rock band and went straight to the top 40. But for a group of fine characters like The Ettes I feel like they at least made an effort at paying their dues around here. Kick some ass, Ettes, and come back and celebrate by doing another rock n roll dance party at Springwater!
