Last year, this was the UMC20: Holiday Edition. Since then, more holiday jams have been released by independent artists all over the world, and we decided that we couldn’t leave it to just 20 songs!
We’ll be updating this every year, and we’ll be adding way more than we subtract. This year’s updated playlist has tunes from artists all over the world — from right here in Nashville, to all the way in Israel. So, let the record show that the spirit of the season is alive and well, everywhere you go.Get in the Spirit
We’re excited to announce a new rock show at The Cobra Nashville on Friday, December 10. This time, we’ll welcome locals Sly Boy, The Sewing Club, and SHELBYY, who will be joined all the way from Cincinnati by internationally-known punks Tiger Sex, whom we had the pleasure of meeting right here in Nashville a couple years back.
Sly Boy is a dark alternative outfit based in Nashville, TN. After producing records for several Nashville area artists, Sly Boy released his self-produced, genre-fluid LP “Jibō Complex” in May of 2021. His live performances feature a mixture of rock, noisewave, and pop macabre.
The Sewing Club is a Nashville Rock band that formed in 2019. The group released their first single on January 16th, 2021 and are working with Jared Corder of Repeat Repeat* to release their debut EP this year.
Tiger Sex is an energetic, in your face, animalistic rock and roll band currently based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Known for pulling out all the stops during their live performances, the band has performed across the United States several times over, as well as in Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
SHELBYY is a modern pop-punk/rock artist from Los Angeles, currently residing in Nashville. Her recent single, “LOUD,” is the quintessential post-COVID anthem, and a sign of the fun, edgy material she has coming down the pipeline. She’ll surely bring that same energy to the table when she joins us in East Nashville!

To review Ellen Starski’s latest release, Sara’s Half Finished Love Affair, as a typical album would be to understate its depth and complexity. This dreamy, ethereal 11-track collection is a full-bodied musical experience; one which is transcendental of genre boundaries, and which reaches into the spiritual realm, to illustrate love and interpersonal connection at the energy level.Meet ‘Sara’
