Defunct Books coming to 5 Points

Bookstores are time machines, spaceships, secret-keepers, dragon-slayers, fact-finders, and safe places. The fragrance of aged paper is a treasure of this world. It is this treasure that urged Greg Delzer to purchase Defunct Books in 2003.  At the time the bookstore was located in Spokane, Wash. under the name Inland Bookstore. “As an English major I always had the dream of owning a...

Presenting The Features

Since releasing The Beginning EP in 2003, Nashville-based combo, The Features, have established themselves as one of the most exciting and imaginative bands working today. Their current release, The Features (Serpents and Snakes 2013) captures the band at its dynamic best. Recorded over a two-week period, the album delivers indie pop polish without sounding overproduced. The focus on... Read More

Alicia Michilli's Got Talent

For someone who claims to be uncomfortable as the center of attention, Alicia Michilli is very comfortable with her recent rise to cyber-fame after her “America’s Got Talent” audition received over 200,000 views. The video, which dubs her as “shy girl,” has brought her voice into the national spotlight, and it has given her the online prestige necessary for what she... Read More

The Future is NOW!

In anticipation of their performance at East Side Social, we asked Luke Levenson to visit ... The Future.   You’d think after eight years in Music City, The Future might want to branch out and look for some new band members. After all, they’ve played every venue in town, and have seen all the local talent from Franklin to the East side. But no! The beauty of The... Read More

Los Colognes

The words “Los Colognes” bring to mind many things, none of which have anything to do with laid-back rock music. The thought of a small mariachi band performing beside a piñata and keg of cerveza comes to mind, but one play to the title track from Los Colognes’ Working Together is enough to dispel that thought; it’s a sonic time machine that transports the...

Bonnaroo Works Fund

Move over headliners. There’s one more thing you’ll wanna check out at this year’s ’Roo. Billy Joel. Mumford and Sons. Robert Plant. The majority of the 85,000 wristbands fist-bumping their way down to The Farm this weekend are well acquainted with the Bonnaroo heavy weights hitting the main stages. But there’s another headliner the Festival wants to keep front... Read More

Checking in with American Hotel

If you ask a successful Nashville band how they all ended up together, you’re likely to get a beautiful coming-of-age story. This is just too interesting of a city not to expect some drama behind the music you hear onstage. American Hotel is no exception, however they do have a more eclectic history than most. Partially the love child of singer-songwriter Jeremy Lister and ex-Bear Cub... Read More
