LIVE SHOW REVIEW: CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD

I always argue that there is something special that sets the Nashville music scene apart.  At 3rd & Lindsley, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood broke from their mold of two sets and added a third—thereby treating fans to over three hours of jam-infused southern rock.  Whether intended or not, I am readily using that third set…

PREVIEW: WILD CUB at 3RD & LINDSLEY on 10/8/17

In 2013, Wild Cub self-released an album called Youth—“We had a great publicist who helped it get some traction, but it kind of petered out,” recalls frontman Keegan DeWitt. “I was in France at a film festival with my wife and I remember saying, ‘Well, it seems like everything has sort of died down.

PREVIEW: NIGHTLY at 3RD & LINDSEY on 4/23/17

While other kids were playing video games, Pennsylvania-bred Nashville-based cousins and musical partners Jonathan Capeci and Joey Beretta were playing music.

REVIEW: THE WEEKS – SECRET SHOW

Nestled in a repurposed warehouse district, Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery is a bit of a Nashville hidden gem. Within the classic-meets-modern bourbon maker is a wonderful concert space, the Oak Room, the exposed brick and concrete of which was the perfect match for a secret show for bluesy rockers, The Weeks. Just last week, the…
