OH MY GOD THE SHOWS JUST DON’T STOP THIS WEEK! Especially tonight. There’s a whole boat-load of goodies going on and there is really no excuse for any of you to not go out and get in it. Especially you, new contributor to ND, D. Watusi [We told him to hit the shows tonight and he said he had to go get 8 Chik-fil-A sandwiches and then play with “funstix”. I guess there’s grosser words for it, but still. Ew.] So here’s the breakdown for you mamis:
:: The Soft Pack
@ Grimey’s New & Pre-Loved Records
$FREE – All Ages – 6PM
This one should be a no-brainer for everyone. It’s awesome weather out, you gotta scoop some records anyways, and it’s free. Soft Pack are playing later on in the night, but we’ll talk about that later. I’d expect Grimey’s to have free booze for the of-age crowd.
:::: Home Blitz
:::::::: The Looking Glass
@ Little Hamilton
$3-5 suggested donation – All Ages – 8PM
Home Blitz has never played Nashy-side before, but they’ve played all over the east coast and are on their way back from doing a slew of SXSW dates. Daniel and the boys have put out some of the best garage-pop-scattered-jams in the last while and if you don’t know, now you know. Plus, who can turn down a bill like that? For serious.
:: Neon Blud
:::: Female Tropics
@ The Green Womb
$5 – All Ages – 9PM
We posted about this one just the other day, and the more we talk about it the more stoked we get. It’s the last show happening at the Green Womb and it’s gonna be a rager. MLU opens up the night around 10PM so get there by then and witness the criminality. Just kidding boyeeez.
:: The Soft Pack
$10 or 12 – 18+ – 9PM
We’ve talked about all these bands plenty of times here at the Deadquarters, so if you’ve been paying attention then you should know fully well what to expect. The only one we haven’t made mention of is Nodzzz. The last time we saw them was at a show on a Sunday afternoon in a very crowded bar playing with Woods, Blank Dogs, and Wavves. Needless to say, they blew the rest right out of the water. Expect nothing less from them tonight. And they’re the nicest dudes ever.

Beaters – Fishage [mp3]
Nodzzz – True to Life [mp3]
Pretty much, Nashville, you can’t lose tonight. Not to mention the Modern Hell show going on, those dudes are pretty killer. Go out and be a somebody!
