doing the diy show right
*friendly advice on how to throw a proper house show
House shows in Nashville are a thing perched precariously on the edge here in 'Music City.' I went to two last week alone, despite several of my favorite spots being shut down by noise complaints, lack of permit knowledge and countless complaints from frustrated neighbors over the last few years. I love a good house show. There's an intimate vibe. In the digital age, there tends to be a more curated experience. The guest list is likely fairly trusty, as you are usually expected to DM someone directly for the info. It can be done well and when it's a hit, it hits big.
It's possible to throw a house show the right way and avoid the drama. It's not very punk, but it'll save you a headache.
Interview // Blackpool Mecca
With a year of making music together under their belts, Blackpool Mecca is ready to unleash their unique brand of rock and roll to the world. Admittedly, we're biased, but they might just be the most interesting new band in town. We sat down with the guys fresh from their debut single 'Boys,' a bluesy-rock banger that reminds us that sometimes, 'She's just not that into you.' Listen here.
