We at Cause A Scene are ecstatic to bring you our first show at one of our favorite venues in town, Mercy Lounge, this Sunday evening and we are doing so with a lineup that will have you jumping and dancing deep into the night. Headlining the bill is indie-pop band, COIN, who have long been a Cause A Scene favorite. The Nashville-based quartet released their newest album, 1992, earlier this summer, and is drawing significant buzz both locally and across the wide spanning indie circuit. Recently having sold out their CD release show at 12th & Porter and having opened for Paper Route and Halfnoise at Exit/In, trust us when we say that these guys are the real deal.

Adding significant depth to the evening’s bill, we are excited to welcome back Cause A Scene alums The Young International and Phin, and CAS newcomers, Canopy Climbers. Alt-rock quartet The Young International’s new singles, “More of the Same” and “Vampire,” which released earlier this year, are the most recent product of one of Nashville’s most promising rising talents. Canopy Climbers are a trio formed in Arkansas that now, separated by distance, continue to write and record with the help of technology. Continually developing a sound that drifts somewhere between indie-rock and pop, the band released their sophomore effort, Miles, earlier this summer. Rounding out the lineup for the night, Phin is a newly formed Nashville band who despite their short time playing together are quickly catching the ears of music lovers, both in our fair Music City and beyond. Helmed by local singer-songwriter Toby Haydel, Phin is comprised of Trevecca Nazarene University students who have made large and quick strides this year, forming the band and cutting their first EP, Those Killers, which boasts a mature and well crafted sound.

Celebrate your long weekend in style this Sunday down at Cannery Row, for what is sure to be one of Cause A Scene’s most exciting and high energy shows of the season. Get your tickets here for $7. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the party starts at 8:00 PM.

Interview: COIN

Cause A Scene’s Adam Naylor recently had a chance to chat with Nashville’s latest buzz band, COIN, to get to know the guys and their music a little better. Hilarity ensued.

How did you guys come up with your band name?

“We were on this eternal search for this one word that had never been used for a musical project. For all we knew,    every single word had already been taken. Just when I thought we would have to  take on the likes of a terrible name like ‘Titan and the Predators’ or ‘Casual Friday’, I found the unlikely. I was looking through race horse winners in a book in an antique store; there, I saw a horse by the name of Golden Coin. I like both of those words.” – Chase

Where in the world would you most like to go on tour?

“Australia seems like some kind of paradise.”- Joe

“I want to see everything; I want to play everywhere. However, the UK seems to have great appeal to me. I feel like success in a European market would be very neat.” – Ryan

From where do you draw your inspiration for the band?

“I find lyrics in a textbook and melodies while playing Sega Genesis. I am strangely inspired by the 90s. Oh, I have a love affair with Talking Heads. So, David Byrne often inspires me.” – Chase

“Coffee.” – Zach

“I try to rely on my mind when it comes to Coin. Obviously, I have influences, but I am always trying to create the thing that hasn’t been created.”- Ryan
“I just want to dance and feel good. Whatever does that, yes.”- Joe

When are you planning on releasing your album? Does it have a name already?

“You can expect to see a seven track EP in the Spring entitled ‘1992’.
“I think you’ll like it. Well, maybe not. But, I’d like to think that you would.”- Joe

What is your favorite thing about Nashville?

“I love the general camaraderie among all the artists and people in this town. Everyone is so supportive. It also seems like Nashville is in the middle of somewhat of a renaissance; so, that’s pretty  neat to be here for that. Also, the food isn’t too bad.”- Joe and Chase

“Broadway.” – Zach

“FROTHY MONKEY”- Everyone, in unison.
