The Deli Nashville and Apple Road Present... Milktooth, The Gills, and Vinyl Thief

We're excited to announce that, on April 26th, we will be bringing our latest party to the Stone Fox in west Nashville! Partnering with Apple Road (the media family behind our beloved East Nashville Underground), we are bringing to the stage Milktooth, The Gills, and Vinyl Thief!

Over the course of the next two weeks, we'll help you to become acquainted with the bands who will be ruling the stage throughout the night. First up, we have Vinyl Thief, the electro-rock four-piece who are recently home from a successful run at SXSW. Though the band has been around for a few years, they have been making a lot of noise over the past few months, from their fantastic set at East Nashville Underground, to their performance at Road To Bonnaroo, to their stop at OurVinyl, where they performed the three songs from their Rebel Hill EP, including "Faces," which you can watch below.

Details about the show are available here, and we can't wait to see you!

   

East Nashville Underground and High Watt Host 8 Off 8th

Tucked away from the bright lights of Music City, eight of the most promising rising acts around town provided an impressive three-song musical sampler, which won’t soon be forgotten. East Nashville Underground and the High Watt hosted an 8 Off 8th event Monday, November 12, featuring acts associated with the Underground’s quarterly festival and sponsored events around town.

All of the featured artists, including local acts such as The Gills, Cult Logic, The Young Liars, Schools, and the Allen Thompson Band, drew a strong crowd reaction. Several musicians seriously blew the top off of the High Watt and absolutely gained a loyal following.

The first to go on was the extremely talented Kim Logan. Sheer vocal force and authentic style immediately differentiates her from other singers around town. Comparable to strong vocalists as Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks, Logan’s voice does her sensual and powerful lyrics justice. As for her band, she has three incredibly strong musicians to aid her in delivering a truly unique musical experience.

Following Kim Logan was Anderson East’s Mike Anderson, going solo for the evening. From the first song, the audience was captivated. Infallible instrumental work, excellent lyrical integrity and astoundingly powerful vocals are a guaranteed from any Anderson East performance, and he certainly delivered to the folks at the High Watt.

Applause for Anderson East was in response to an absolutely astounding set from The Young International. An interesting similarity to indie and alt legends Radiohead, Coldplay, Muse and Hot Hot Heat, this group swept up the entire room and secured a dedicated fan base via a high-energy performance and quality indie rock goodness.

Although the task of choosing a favorite act from East Nashville Underground’s 8 Off 8th is a daunting and nearly impossible task, you can decide for yourself at this weekend's ENU event. Follow the Underground on Facebook and Twitter for an event schedule. –Courtney Foster
