Weekly Highlights – 12/21 – 12/27

20 Dec

Hey, it’s the week of Christmas so don’t expect too much.

Monday

8 off 8th at the Mercy Lounge – 9pm
This week’s 8 off 8th featuring Silver Seas, Madi Diaz, Tommy Keenum, Karmakite, Lanky, Mike Younger, and Justin and The Cosmics. I’m not sure about comma placement, there weren’t any commas on the Mercy Lounge website, so I just added them as I saw fit.

Holiday Concert: The Caroling Troubadours at the Frist – 2pm
This event is “a holiday sing-along with the strolling minstrels, the Caroling Troubadours. Local favorites Sarah Martin McConnell, Kathy Chiavola and Joe Freel offer a selection of holiday and seasonal tunes.” So it’s just like normal caroling?

Christmas is the season of giving, and our favorite local bands have been DELIVERING! I’ve stopped counting all the free shows that have been going on this week, and here’s another one for you!

The Holly House Second Annual Winter Formal is upon us! It’s part two of Winter of Dreamz and the lineup is pretty sweet. Here’s a list of the bands who have been chosen to get your Christmas done right.

The Caresses
Eureka Gold
Non-Commisioned Officers
Shoot the Mountain
Tristen

The show is this Saturday, December 19th at 9pm at the Mercy Lounge. There will be Santa Claus, merriment, a photo booth, and tons of free live music. Okay, so this event isn’t technically free HEAR ME OUT, but it’s only $3 or IF you bring some canned goods for donation it IS free. Seriously though, bring something other than creamed corn or canned peas, opt for something that people actually like.

For a look into last year’s photobooth, click here. There’s some goooood stuff there, haha.

A bit about Holly House: Holly House is a group of bands in Nashville, TN who formed a musical collective in 2008. They play on each others’ records and perform with each other live. Their sole focus is to produce great music and put on amazing shows.
