Nashville Pioneers To Host Press Conference

A few weeks ago, fellow indie music blog No Country for New Nashville introduced us to Nashville's official ("official") basketball team. Though unrecognized by every official basketball association, Nashville's lack of a hoops crew leaves a gaping hole in the local sportsball circuit, allowing a perfect opportunity for the Nashville Pioneers to pick up the slack.

The team roster is stacked with a handful of local faces, from shop owners, to magazine masterminds, to musicians. Get to know your local hoopsters:

Adrien "Slingshot" Saporiti - Power Forward [Owner, DCXV]
Otis "Handyman" James - Forward [Fashion designer]
Chancellor "Ball So Hard" Warhol - Power Forward [Hip-hopper]
Dave "El Coyote" Pittman - Point Guard [Founder/Editor of Native Magazine]
Ben "Shaft" Elkins - Post [Musician, Heypenny]
Neil "Bear Hugs" McCormick - Post [Yazoo Brewery]
Jake "Double Dribble" Jones - Shooting Guard [Owner/Founder, Electric Western Records]
Andy "Teen Wolf" Mumma - Shooting Guard [Owner, Barista Parlor]
Evan "Death Laser" Donohue - Center [Musician]
Danny "Pterodactyl" Pujol - Center [Musician, Pujol]
Emil "King" Congdon - Post [Owner, Emil Erwin]
William "Tasty" Tyler - Forward [Musician]
Reno "Nevada" Bo [Musician, producer] 

Bob "I Used to be a M***** F*****" Saporiti - Coach [Warner Bros. Records GM, retired] ​
Joe the Waterboy - Waterboy [Native Magazine]
Also rumored to have made the cut: Sam Palladio [Actor, Nashville]

The first game on the Pioneers's schedule is v. Rhode Island. If you're curious about how all of this is going to play out, tune into the live stream of the team's first press conference today over at No Country for New Nashville at 2:30 pm. –Brianne Turner

   

East Nashville Underground Announces Full Summer Lineup

East Nashville's quarterly underground music festival is getting bigger with each season and the summer lineup has been announced. Beginning August 17th and running through the weekend, East Nashville Underground will feature performances from 18 bands, including The Joy Of Painting, Chancellor Warhol, and Sam Lewis, as well as Oh No No's farewell show.

Wristbands are $12 per night or $20 for the weekend and cover your beer tab for the duration of your night/weekend. The festival was recently sponsored by Fat Bottom Brewing, which means you can consume a lot of good beer (and a lot of good music) on a PBR budget.

All other details about the event can be found here. RIP, Oh No No. --Brianne Turner
