Locals, buzz bands play free bday bash Friday
For it's fifth year T&P pull out all the stops by inviting unfortunately named, over-the-top punky Nashville buzz outfit Diarrhea Planet, whose wild and ridiculous live shows have quickly become legendary in indie circles, to share the bill. Charlotte's Little Bull Lee and Old Soles round out the bill.
The annual birthday gig started at the Milestone and moved to Tremont's Casbah for its second year. It has since taken place in Tremont's big room where around 550 fans gathered last year to bounce and sing along with Junior Astronomers. Over 500 people is a pretty impressive feat for a local act. There's something special about witnessing that many people supporting local music. It's something I might've seen in the mid `90s, but it doesn't happen that often now unless said band is generating Avetts/Matrimony-sized national buzz.
Admission is free for those 21 and over and $5 for those under 21. The show starts at 9 p.m. For more info click here.
