Two nights from now, on Saturday, July 28, Cause A Scene welcomes Darlingside to Nashville, for their first ever performance in Music City. The show kicks off around 8:00 and we have 2 wonderful Nashville bands opening: Peter Terry & The City Profits, who were recently named The Deli Magazine’s Band of the Month, and Matty & the Lovebones. Tickets are available in advance for $5 at the Eventbrite link below and for $10 at the door. Hope to see you there!
Darlingside is a Northampton, MA-based “string-rock” quintet that is exploding onto stages across the Northeast. Together only a year, they have already played to packed houses from Portland to D.C., headlining such prestigious venues as The Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, Brooklyn Bowl in NYC, and the Paramount Theatre in Rutland, VT. Lush five-part vocal harmonies, classical cello-violin duets, and compelling break-beats characterize the band’s sound. Darlingside keeps audiences on their toes with exuberant stage presence, spontaneous a cappella, frequent instrument switches, mind-boggling covers, and a widely eclectic, cross-genre blend of original material. Darlingside’s unquestionable originality is borne of an unlikely hodgepodge of musical backgrounds: Harris began playing classical cello when he was six, and appeared twice on NPR with his classical piano trio. Auyon earned a travel fellowship after college to study and write about the traditional music of Brazil, Turkey, and Ireland. Don toured nationally as a boy alto, picked up the guitar in high school, and honed his singer/songwriter talents playing for sunset boat cruises in Maine. Dave began singing and arranging vocal music in college, where he became musical director of his a cappella group, then spent two years learning guitar as a street musician in Boston and abroad. Sam got started on drums at the age of seven, and his intricate style fuses jazz, funk, hip-hop, and rock. Together, the five close friends are “a powerhouse of vocal, instrumental, songwriting, and performing talent,” with “a surprisingly rich voice that belies their relative youth.”
Peter Terry and the City Profits, a folk/rock outfit that blends the soulful, thoughtful lyrics of front man Peter Terry, the sultry sounds of the cello. Originally formed in Chicago, the band now calls Nashville home, where they have been refining their unique sound. Their debut album, I Am Jackson, was released on 11-1-11 on iTunes and Amazon. Individually honing their crafts at various midwestern universities, their exceptional musicianship and creativity allows the City Profits to transform Terry’s songwriting into interesting compositions spanning several music genres including rock, folk, singer-songwriter, jazz, and the blues.
Matty & The Lovebones are a Rock/Pop/Americana band based out of Nashville, TN. “Think if Ryan Adams, John Mayer Trio, and the Black Crowes had a musical love child..that’s us.”
