NashLive! Presents: Greasediver, The Mad Sugars, and American Goon at The 5 Spot

NashLive! will be back at The 5 Spot on Thursday, July 21 — and it will be a party full of drummers who front their own bands!

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-GirlfriendChicago Fire, and Search Party, and is finishing work on the band’s first full length album, to be released in the fall of 2022.

American Goon is a new side-project from Zack Murphy, who normally plays drums in the blues-punk outfit Blackfoot Gypsies. On this project, Murphy is not limiting himself to just percussion as he plays drums, guitar, bass as well as vocals. He utilizes the raw garage sound of The MC5 along with the simple blues flavored swagger of early 1970s The Rolling Stones to deliver two songs that are consistent with the general themes of rock n roll while still being fresh and interesting.

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 for this and other upcoming NashLive! events!

NashLive! Presents: Deidre, Krantz, and DaChri at The Cobra Nashville

Deidre is a pop/alternative artist from the Washington, D.C. area who recently relocated to Nashville. Driven to start a new chapter in her life, the fearless 22-year-old is using her strong, bold voice to express her emotions emanated from her most challenging moments. Her determination to be heard is the prominent theme of her upcoming projects, which she hopes will encourage others to face toxic relationships with strength and to never stop believing in themselves.

Krantz can best be described as “rock ‘n roll in color from Music City, USA.” His new single, “Girlfriend,” was recently released to all streaming platforms, and the captivating live performer can always be called upon to bring potent energy and high-quality musicianship to the stage, as was the case when he last joined us at The High Watt in February.

Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, DaChri is just an eclectic soul trying to make his mark on the world. Drawing inspiration from the likes Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, The Beatles, Pharrell, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, Drake, and Kanye; DaChri blends elements of pop, R&B, alternative, and hip hop with his own singer-songwriter flair to help steer his sound. The self-proclaimed “Black Bieber” is sure to get you up and dancing with his infectious soundtrack. Now residing in Nashville — and surrounded by some of the best songwriters and producers in the world — DaChri is cultivating classics that are sure to be around for ages.

Songs You Should Hear… from Sunday’s NashLive! Lineup

We have a solid NashLive! show to look forward to this Sunday at The East Room, and we thought we’d use this week’s Songs You Should Hear to celebrate it.

Supersonic folk troubadour (and longtime friend of UMC) Ali Aslam is coming down from Brooklyn to join Nashville locals Mary Jennings and Pepperwood, and we’re pretty psyched about it. So psyched, that we’ve given you a preview of what’s to come this weekend. Enjoy!

Hear What You Should

Meet the Lineup

NashLive! Presents: Leah Jean and Sam Gyllenhaal Band at The Cobra Nashville

On a regular day, you can find Leah Jean penning a heartfelt lyric, humming an infectious melody, or letting her fingers find the guitar riff that will inspire a sumptuous song. Adorned with honest lyrics that hit close to home, Leah Jean’s music resonates and stays with you far beyond the final note. Haunting vocals and harmonies soar over moody backdrops colored with undertones of bluesy jazz, folk, and soul.  Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Leah Jean brings a humble persona and fresh perspective to the Nashville music scene.

Sam Gyllenhaal Band’s pop, rock, and country influences inspire their songs’ cascading melodies, driving grooves and vivid lyrics. The band likes to sing about life and love in motion — sometimes soaring, sometimes stumbling, but always moving forward. They’re releasing a new single every month in 2022 on all streaming platforms. Also, a fun fact: Sam joined us last time at Cobra on April 14 as part of Nicole Boggs & The Reel!

This show, just like that last one, is free to attend. You just need to be 21 or older to enter. We’ll see you there, and at some of NashLive!’s other upcoming shows.
