NashLive! Presents: Greasediver, The Mad Sugars, and Forts Like Vana at The 5 Spot
July 21 @ 9:00 pm - July 22 @ 12:00 am$10
NashLive! will be back at The 5 Spot on Thursday, July 21 — and it will be a rock and roll party!
Out of the flooded, beer can strewn basements Nashville stumbles Greasediver. Emmett Rozelle sings and plays most of the instruments on their 2021 album, In the Wake of the Past, but he couldn’t have done it without the help of his friends. His partners in crime include but are not limited to: Zach D’Amico (engineering, production, drums), Peter Piscitelli (bass guitar), and Ian Colt (artwork, cover design, and the latest in a long line of celebrated Trench Dwellers).
The Mad Sugars are the songwriting vehicle of Adam Lawrence, combining the dance rock of Franz Ferdinand, the garage punk of The Hives, and the vocal harmonies and party vibes of The B-52s as a backdrop for stories of nightlife misadventures. Hailing originally from NJ, and later NYC, Adam then relocated from New York to Nashville in 2017 and re-formed the band, releasing Reboot in October of 2021, containing reimagined renditions of older songs for the new Nashville audience. In recent years, Adam has placed his songs in TV shows such as The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Chicago Fire, and Search Party, and is finishing work on the band’s first full length album, to be released in the fall of 2022.
Forts Like Vana are known around town for their lively stage performances and raw, yet polished sound. In fact, they bring the fire every time they join us for a NashLive! show!
Tickets for this one are $10 at the door, and you must be 21 or older to enter. The fun starts at 9 p.m., and we hope you’ll join us!
