Striking Matches @ Eddie’s Attic
When: Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Simply stated, Striking Matches, made up of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, came to Nashville to play music. Sarah, a Philadelphia native and Justin from Atlanta met when a professor at Belmont University paired them at random to play for a classroom full of guitar majors. Consequently, their first performance was the first time they had ever played together. The pair has been writing and performing ever since. Their influences range from Jerry Reed to the Beatles, John Mayer to Patsy Cline, and back again. It becomes more obvious every day that they were born to play music together.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $14 at the door. Table seats are $12.50 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm day of show.




The Felice Brothers @ The EARL
When: Sunday, July 6th, 2014

The Felice Brothers kicked off in 2006. They did what any delinquent youths, lost in upstate New York with dim job prospects would do: become obsessed with traveling the world and playing extremely loud rock and roll. After settling on minor matters like who plays what (Ian Felice- vocals/guitar, James Felice- accordion/keys/vocals, Greg Farley- fiddle/vocals, Josh Rawson- bass/vocals. Recent addition David Estabrook- old friend/new drummer – completes the current line up), the band procured instruments, cans of sardines and packed up tents and devoted their lives to studying the art of song craft, from Hoagie Carmichael to Kurt Cobain. They also began figuring out how to actually play those instruments. It was a long way to the top.

Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 at the door. Doors open at 8pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.




Southern Halo @ Eddie’s Attic
When: Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Southern Halo is the creation of a soulful sister trio born and raised in the Mississippi Delta. Born and raised in the Delta and talented beyond their years, the girls bring a unique blend of blues, southern rock and pop country to the stage. Southern Halo has generated an exceptionally interesting sound which is both raw and heartfelt. Each of the sisters brings their own taste and unique individuality to the band with Rock, Pop, Country, and Blues influences.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $16 at the door. Table seats are $15 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 7:30pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm on the day of the show.
