We’re teaming up with our dear friends and community partners at Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME) to put an extra gift under the tree of anyone who participates in one of our 2020 Underground Writers Rounds at Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe.
It’s been a pleasure to become acquainted with the mission and people behind Sad Girl Music throughout our first full year in Nashville. Likewise, we’ve enjoyed seeing their monthly Sad Girl Night showcases grow at Helping Our Music Evolve.
On Sunday night, we got to experience that growth one more time to close out 2019, and were treated to an evening full of stellar musicianship, authentic storytelling, and captivating vocals.

Earlier this week, we announced an Underground Writers Round lineup for December whose versatility and diversity is reflective of the community at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.).
Now, you get to find out who is playing and when at Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe on Friday, December 13. The evening will be divided up as it usually is, with two rounds of three writers apiece. One at 9 p.m., and one at 10 p.m.
The difference, of course, is that all proceeds from your $5 suggested donation at the door will benefit H.O.M.E., which has provided us and so many others an amazing resource for building relationships and our platforms alike.
Let’s get to it, then, and reveal the finalized lineup after the jump!

When Derek Webb released Stockholm Syndrome in 2009, it was equally experimental and controversial. The album’s urban electronica landscape was a noted departure from Webb’s singer-songwriter roots, while the record found itself under record label censorship due to its unabashed critiques on political and spiritual matters.
On Friday night, Webb celebrated 10 years of his landmark album at The Basement in Nashville, trading in the album’s multi-layered soundscapes for an evening of acoustic interpretations.

We’ll return to Douglas Corner Cafe on Friday, December 13 at 9 p.m. for the final Underground Writers Round of 2019.
And, in the spirit of the season, we’ve decided it’s time to give back.
