UMC20: Worth the Wait (July 6, 2022)

We were catching up from the recharge of the long weekend yesterday, and decided we needed an extension on delivering this week’s UMC20 to your digital doorsteps.

With that said, we’re confident that these 20 jams are worth the wait. Surely, you’ve seen a few of these grace our pages in other ways in recent weeks. As for the others, they may be new to your ears, and you just might be hearing more about a few of them in the days ahead.

We’re back in action from the holiday, and as always, we’re bringing the heat! Come get some below!

NashLive! Presents: Borrowed Sparks and Uplander at The Cobra Nashville

NashLive! will be back at The Cobra Nashville on Saturday, May 21 with Borrowed Sparks and Uplander.

What happens when you combine the raw heartfelt honesty of a singer-songwriter with the simmer angst of punk rock? You get Borrowed Sparks (Mike Bay), who has spent years drawing from these two contrasting styles to distill a batch of songs that feel like quiet confessions being shouted from the back of a dive bar.

Uplander, formed by songwriter Riley Haynie, pulls from shoegaze, post-punk, goth, and new wave. The result?Atmospherically heavy songs that maintain an edge of pop sensibility and appeal.

The best part? This is another free one in The Cobra’s front room! Music kicks off at 7:30 p.m., and you must be 21 or older to enter!

UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!
