R.I.P. CHARLIE BOB’S MIXTAPE
Charlie Bob’s, a beloved Nashville restaurant and venue, is being torn down this year. Amityville is sending it off with love, in the form of a mixtape of bands that have performed there over the years. If you have played Charlie Bob’s and wish to submit a song for a limited cassette release, send it to email@example.com. There are only 15 spots, so we ask that submissions be no longer than 4 minutes to accommodate that many artist spots. The cassette release is set for summer 2017, so don’t wait to send in your songs!
