10 Must-See Shows In Nashville This Week

-

Take note, y’all:

Whatever you’re celebrating this season, be it Christmas or Hanukkah or the end of a very emotionally tumultous winter season of Nashville (seriously, what’s going to happen with Rayna/Luke/Deacon?), we hope it is filled with cheer, and specifically music. Wanna fill up your weekly schedule with some amazing concerts? Put on your dancin’ shoes and head to one of these must-see Nashville shows (and you can browse them all HERE)!

The Hippest Concert In The 615

The Black Keys & St. Vincent

st

WHO:

Only two of the coolest acts in music. The Black Keys are all over Music City, but there is a difference between seeing them chow down on some Burger Up truffle fries and seeing them do their musical thang (though both are majestic). St. Vincent joins the Keys at Bridgestone to round out one of the hippest bills in town. Digital Witness live? Gold.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Keep the cool factor going by enjoying some craft cocktails and gravy fries at Pub5. You’ll only have to park once since the restaurant is a short walk – right across from the venue! If you’re still feeling rowdy, check out Fleet Street Pub downtown for some dart-playin’ and beer-drinkin’.

Make Your Holidays Extra Funky

Anthony Hamilton

ant

WHO:

You probably already know this, but Anthony Hamilton is R&B royalty. The soul singer has been on the scene since ’03, churning out slow jams/toe tappers/everything in between and collaborating with music’s best. Lucky for us, Hamilton has released his first Christmas album, and he’s bringing the party to the symphony. Get ready for Motown-inspired feel-good track “Spend Christmas With You” and prepare to shed a sentimental tear on Gavin Degraw duet “Home For The Holidays”. It’s gonna get funky, Nashville.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

If you still feel like busting a move post-concert, you should take your concert date to BBKings. They’ll be playing the Motown hits all night long, so you can break out that dance you were mentally doing in your seat during the show. Time for the electric slide! Also, try the fried pickles.

You’ll Be All About It, Baby

Hoodie Allen

HOODIE

WHO:

Hoodie Allen is a rapper for the meme-loving, intensely self-aware, and cuttingly insightful Generation Y-ers. He’s been on the rise for a while now, and his most recent record (which features Ed Sheeran) shows off what he does best: satirical pop culture references and an apathetic form of honesty. He’ll call out his fans for being named Megan and Ashley and admit that his baby (who he is “all about”) has parents who “don’t like it when [he] talks [his] s**t”. Respect, dude.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

If you want to live like you’re a freshman in college (meaning drink copious amounts of alcohol out of something other than a mason jar or martini glass), then get your pre-concert drink on at The Villager Tavern. Take a stab at the dog bowl challenge (just make sure no one gets it on camera, champ).

Have One Hell Of A Night

Dustin Lynch

lyn

WHO:

Dustin Lynch is becoming one of country’s leading men, so of course he has to take the stage at Nashville’s most historic venue. The cowboy hat-sportin’ gent will be playing Opry At The Ryman, and if his newest single is any indication, you’re going to have a Hell Of A Night.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

For all you boot-scooting country lovers out there, make sure you check out Wildhorse Saloon. Order some brewskies and a beer-flavored steak (yeah – that’s real) and get to two-stepping! The dance floor is huge, and there’s always a crowd doing some line dancing. If that’s not your thing, pick up a show poster at Hatch Show Print in the Omni Hotel – you’ll be taking home a piece of musical history.

Get To Steppin’ Out With Your Baby

Tony Bennett

tben

WHO:

One of the last remaining voices of the great American standard tradition, Tony Bennett is a legend. Much like the classic American song “Young At Heart”, Bennett has an impenetrable youthfulness and crystal-clear voice, even at 88 years old (WHAT). Bonus: at his shows, Frank Sinatra comes over the loud speakers to introduce him as “his favorite singer”. Double bonus: Tony’s daughter Antonia is the opener. Expect lots of adorable daddy-daughter duets.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Word is that T-Benn enjoys the family-style pasta at Maggiano’s on West End. How could he not? Pasta and unlimited bread…count us in forever. If you want to run with that nostalgic vibe, pay a visit to Patterson House and indulge in a Prohibition-era libation.

Plug In To The Indie Community

Communion Nashville

dan

WHO:

If you haven’t heard of Communion Nashville, here’s what you need to know: founded by members of Bear’s Den and Mumford & Sons in London, Communion has been the launchpad for some wildly successful (yet still authentic) artists. The sense of community is strong, it happens every month, and this one is going to be killer: Dylan Leblanc, Albatross, Stone Cold Fox, and Daniella Mason play (her song Shade Of You is amazing, FYI).

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Get your pre-concert fuel from a sushi joint that will give you bang for your buck. Wild Wasabi is good for groups, cheap, and even has some music-themed sushi rolls – the Happy Together roll is a local favorite. You’ll be able to walk to the venue from dinner – just make sure you bring a winter coat!

A Nostalgic Show That Will Have You Saying “Mmhmm”

Relient K

EW

WHO:

Every youth group kid’s favorite band of all time, of course. Relient K is going on a nostalgic tour for the ages, commemorating the 10 year anniversary of album Mmhmm. Break out your 2004 best (so probably an American Eagle shirt and some jeans with rhinestones on the butt) and head to Cannery to hear the awesomeness of “Which To Bury (Us Or The Hatchet)” and cry all the beautiful confessional tears during “Let It All Out”.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Want a place to reminisce with your concert buddies? Talk about how far you’ve come since 04′ over a vat of queso and some margaritas at Chago’s Cantina. That Pollo Gringo (just a big ol’ dish of chicken, queso, and rice) will have you saying MMHMM.

Bayou Blues In Music City

The Delta Saints

 delt

WHO:

They may have started as a Belmont band, but The Delta Saints have become an internationally-loved touring force to be reckoned with. These fellas have gritty vocals, harmonica for days, and swinging dreads that will make you want to chill out on the bayou with a bucket of crawfish. Get ready to do some enthusiastic foot-stompin’ at this high energy show.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Get in the blues-y spirit at Tenn Sixteen. The East Nashville dinner spot has TVs for sports watching, Mardi Gras beads, and the best crawfish cakes this side of N’Awlins. You’ll need to carbo-load for all the head banging that is going to ensue.

That’s One Talented Family

Kopecky Family Band

koe

WHO:

The critically-beloved Nashville based band is known for their live performances. Kopecky Family Band has been compared to Fleetwood Mac, given tons of honors from the top music mags (HELLO Paste), and sold out venues all over town. Don’t miss this show with everyone’s favorite non-related family (no, they’re technically not related) – you’ll be dancin’ the night away!

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

Celebrate the band’s Belmont origins by hitting up one of the delicious dinner options on Belmont Boulevard! For upscale Asian cuisine (and, surprisingly, one of the best burgers in Nashville), try PM. If you’re feeling like having some Thai food in a dive-y restaurant/market, pay a visit to International Market. Finally, grab a latte at Bongo Java to make sure you stay awake for this late-night concert!

Possibly See Connie Britton’s Hair In Real Life

Christmas With The Cast Of Nashville

chr

WHO:

It is still partly a mystery. Here’s what we know: details are TBD. Tim Akers (who tours with Rascal Flatts and does a million other cool things) & The Smoking Section are set to play. Joining the roster is the super-talented Jay Demarcus (of Rascal Flatts fame) and the cast of Nashville! Demarcus has just produced a Nashville Christmas album with the cast, including classic covers like Clare Bowen’s “Santa Baby”, Jonathan Jackson’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” and THE Connie Britton’s “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch”. While it is unclear who exactly will be performing, we’re gonna bet it’s going to be the kind of legendary Nashville night that becomes a timeless memory.

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT:

If you’re a Nashville fan (especially one in town for the weekend), do our self-guided walking tour of the show’s locations leading up to the concert. Make reservations to top your tour off with a drink and dinner at the famous Bluebird Cafe!
