NEW SHOW ALERT: Pepperwood, Nicole Boggs & The Reel, and The Wistful Larks at Cobra Nashville Apr. 14

It’s been a minute since we made one of these NashLive! show announcements. Now, the wait is over!

NashLive! will make its long-awaited return to Cobra Nashville on Thursday, April 14 by bringing a dose of rock to East Nashville. Joining this quest will be Pepperwood, Nicole Boggs & The Reel, and The Wistful Larks.

Pepperwood, the brainchild of Nashville native songwriter Zach Wyatt, has been described as many things — and most of them good. They have a hard time fitting into a specific sound, as every band member listens to a wide range of genres with influences peppered throughout, but they’ve been compared to Relient K, Kings of Leon, Colony House, Temper Trap, and others.

Rooted in three-part harmony and existential blues, Nicole Boggs & The Reel inject rock & roll riffs and vindicated vocals into social commentary, holding a mirror to the absurdity of modern life. Nicole Boggs (bass, lead vox), Alex Kramer (guitars, vox), and Sam Gyllenhaal (guitars, vox) grew up in musical families and walked individual paths before coming together for their first official band release, Scenes From Last Year, in 2019. Dripping with razor-edged sarcasm, their hard-hitting follow-up EP None of Your Business dropped in the summer of 2020, in the depths of the first wave of COVID-19. Since then,  the group has been honing their collective sound behind the scenes, quietly and diligently working on their upcoming release, Dystopian Book Club. Their latest single, “Existential Blues,” is streaming everywhere now.

The Wistful Larks are an alternative rock band created in the basements of the Chicago suburbs. The band was crafted from the remnants of the punk rock band Americana, started by high school friends Cody Varga and Tony Aguilar and longtime friend Steve-o Gonzalez. After Steve-o’s departure from the band, The Wistful Larks relocated to Nashville and recruited Adam Wathen as their new drummer. The band is influenced by modern and vintage counter-culture. Combining punk, indie, heartland rock, the darker days of 60s rock, love, hate, and the emotions between, the band wants to paint a vivid story with their unique sound.

This show is FREE to enter, in The Cobra’s front room. You must be 21+.
