Twangdogs are bringing an extra-special show to Nashville on Saturday, Sept. 20 — one that will appeal to everyone in town for Americanafest 2014 that same week.
“Love Americana Style” is a song cycle curated by the Chicago-based band, featuring musical stories about love and loss — all with an Americana twang. Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/lovetwangdogs.
The show will include tunes originally recorded by some performers who will be playing Americanafest — for instance, Jamestown Revival. The band will also mix in some old-time rockabilly (Buddy Holly), contemporary country (Little Big Town, Pistol Annies), alt-country (Kasey Chambers, Steve Earle, Kathleen Edwards), twangy indie-rock (Decemberists) and country-rock (Eagles, John Mellencamp).
It will all add up to a twangy good time, starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at 12th and Porter in downtown Nashville. Tickets are now on sale — for a limited time, get two tickets for the price of one (just $10).
The show will wrap up in plenty of time so you can mosey over to Riverfront Park for the 5 p.m. Americanafest headline show by the Avett Brothers.
Twangdogs are a seven-piece band that has been playing steadily around the Chicago area for almost three years now. Featuring five singers and rich vocal harmonies, the band has earned a reputation for melodic and muscular renditions of country/Americana tunes.
Last August, Twangdogs played two well-received shows in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Festival Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival. This will be the band’s first appearance in Nashville.
