THE DELTA SAINTS @ ELLISTON PLACE ST FEST

THE DELTA SAINTS FOUNDED 2008 Among rock ‘n’ roll’s many mistresses and muses, California remains one of the most enigmatic, enduring, and enchanting. The Golden State’s allure can notably be attributed to the intoxicating melodic excess of the Eagles’ “Hotel California” and the finger-picked pensiveness of Led Zeppelin’s “Going To California,” to name a few. The West Coast’s influence courses throughout The Delta Saints’ 2017 full-length album, Monte Vista. Irresistible lead single “California” snaps from a vintage synth swell into a rough-n-tumble guitar riff and bluesy howl. It’s an anthem for throwing caution to the wind, skipping town and...

DIARRHEA PLANET @ ELLISTON PLACE ST FEST

DIARRHEA PLANET FOUNDED 2009 The gravitational pull of Diarrhea Planet is strong; once you get caught in the orbit of its stadium-sized riffs and blistering solos, it’s hard to escape. The Nashville six-piece has been melting faces since its debut 7” Aloha first started making waves outside the leafy campus of Belmont University, where its members first met. What started as a dorm room dick joke between two friends bored by the music-business ladder-climbing of their classmates has grown into one of the biggest—and loudest—rock acts to come out of Nashville since their big bros and labelmates in JEFF...

OLIVER JOHN-RODGERS @ ELLISTON PLACE ST FEST

OLIVER JOHN-RODGERS Crossing a broad range of styles from indie-folk/blues/Americana to grunge/psychedelia/rock n’ roll, OJR blends a variety of familiar influences (Neil Young; T-Rex; Nirvana; Jack White, to name a few) with his own prolific songwriting ability and ear-catching southern vocal style. The result is a soul-scratching, modern homage to a vintage sound that’s completely unique and delivered with tons of swagger. Nashville-based Oliver John-Rodgers, a.k.a. OJR, is an ambitiously prolific songwriter, whose throwback sound is equally informed by familiar rock influences like T. Rex, Pink Floyd, and Nirvana, as it is by more folk-tinged, singer-songwriter acts like Ryan...

THE DEAD DEADS @ 12TH & PORTER

DEAD DEADS We’re a band. Hard-rock quartet from Nashville, TN. Riffs, gang vocals and drum rippage abound. For fans of bands. We live for the #deadcorps. The Dead Deads are comprised of a pair of best friends who came together for a girls’ jam night that turned into much more. Audiences may be curious as they see girls with X’s painted over their eyes appear on stage, but once the wall of sound washes over them, they are transfixed and spirited away into the dark and magical world of The Dead Deads. Heads bang as metal and grunge riffs...

EDWARD SHARPE AND THE MAGNETIC ZEROS @ ASCEND AMPHITHEATER

EDWARD SHARPE AND THE MAGNETIC ZEROS In 2002, in the midst of a year of sleeplessness, and novel-writing, Alex Ebert created two things: A distracted, deformed, and hopelessly romantic messianic character named Edward Sharpe, and a new kind of mathematics called Magnetic Zeros. The novel was never completed and the math’s application is yet-to-be determined, but Ebert liked the sound of those two inventions combined, and a band who’s members were yet to be met was born. (Note: “Edward Sharpe” is not an alter ego of Ebert’s, but rather “a vehicle that delivered me back to myself”). Several years...
