Nashville Pride Recap

This past weekend, Nashville had its annual pride festival. It was wonderful! Publice Square Park transformed into a sea of people coming together for the same great cause. The two nights featured food trucks, businesses, and local as well as not-so-local musicians. It really was truly amazing. The Nashville artists consisted of The Harmaleighs, Ponychase, and the QDP DJs. The Harmaleighs are soulful and sweet, and will next be playing Murfreesboro Folk'n'Art Festival on July 26th. As always, Ponychase was awesome and the DJs kept things lively both days. –Amanda Aydelott

   

Ponychase to Release Debut LP "Parade of Youth" 3.4.14

Those at Mercy Lounge for the QDProm over Valentine’s Day got lucky in more ways than one (or just one, if they’re severely lacking game) as Ponychase was in the lineup. The backstory in the group’s creation reads like its own little romance: girl (Jordan Caress) is distraught over what will come of her home demos, meets her musical soulmate in Beth Cameron of Forget Cassettes, enlists her synth-savant little brother, and the rest of the pieces fall into place. The band’s debut album “Parade of Youth” is due out March 4th. From the sound of the title track released last fall, the serendipity of the band’s creation is going to make a lot of people happy. Ponychase performs at The Basement on March 7th; the show starts at 9 and cover is $5. -Terra James-Jura
