Nashville's local acts go Nirvana at The Basement East on 01.10

At the start of a new year, you may find yourself thinking about the music that you listened to in the past, and realizing that many of your favorite albums came out decades ago, making you feel quite old. However, "old" is just a state of mind, and at a concert celebrating thirty years since the release of Nirvana's Bleach, you'll throw yourself into the pit with the reckless abandon of a riled-up fourteen-year-old. 

Join some of Nashville's most rollicking acts on January 10th at The Basement East as they cover Nirvana's discography -- Bleach, Nevermind, and In Utero, along with some well-known B-sides -- in honor of three decades since the band put out their first record. Acts include HER, Taco Mouth, Step Sisters, and many more, all of whom will share the stage and channel Kurt, Krist, and Dave through their voices and instruments. Among the bands on the bill are The Dead Deads, who just released a live album on Christmas Day. Take a listen to it below and imagine the Deads pounding out their version of "In Bloom", then get down to The Basement East on the 10th and hear it for yourself. - Will Sisskind

Get "Thick" with Step Sisters and see them live at Foobar Too 01.19

Thick. There it is, right on the front of the album. Thick. Before you even hear a sound, you know what you’re about to get. Thick. Then the music starts and you get a taste of those riffs. What about those riffs? Thick. They’re thick.

Every part of "Vox Pop," the lead single off the upcoming EP from local four-piece Step Sisters, suggests a nice pop tune that was left out in the sun a little too long. From the fuzzed-out bass to the dripping, decaying vocal effects, what you get is a soupy mixture that remains undeniably irresistible.

Stream "Vox Pop" below and catch Step Sisters live at Foobar Too next Tuesday, 01.19. -Austin Phy

Step Sisters Bring the Heavy

 With the garage rock resurgence in full swing, rock 'n' roll is returning to the days of packed, sweaty house shows, DIY releases and handmade band merch. And I couldn't be happier.

Nashville, particularly the east side, is a hot bed for lo-fi gold, and local psych punk 4-piece Step Sisters are my latest find.

Catchy enough to get stuck in your head and heavy enough to let you know they mean business, Step Sisters are doing grunge right. And their 4-song release, dropped earlier this year, is like smashing a lava lamp and pouring the contents directly into your brain. See for yourself and grab the EP here. -Caroline Bowman
