We connected once again with Chris and Zach of Do615 about live music this week featuring loads of rock ‘n roll — from a double-header with local boys Kings of Leon and openers Cold War Kids Thursday/Friday, to touring Northeastern punk band Gymshorts on Friday at The End, to a two-night Mercy Lounge run with Bully Friday/Saturday, to decades-spanning hits from Sleater-Kinney and Wilco at Ascend on Sunday.
If show-going is not yet comfortable or enticing to you, there’s plenty else happening in Middle Tennessee, as we discussed. You might venture across the river to the family-friendly, though doubtless hot, 18th Annual Tomato Art Fest, or point your designated driver south to the inaugural Brentwood Beer Festival. With all these sweaty summer events, you might opt to bathe yourself in sound on Sunday morning at Cheekwood to cleanse yourself for a new work week!
Below are some upcoming events around Nashville that caught our eye, from Do615:
