Check out our latest interview with Jon Reynolds & The Aches. Jon shares with us his thoughts and motivations behind the newest single ‘Poison’ off their soon to be released album ‘Generation Love’.
The night before the dreaded and useless Valentine’s Day Molly Rocket threw a party to raise money and awareness for NOAH (Nashville Organized for Action and Hope). The line-up was a delicious mixed bag with rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop, pop, singer-songwriter and punk. I’m usually not a fan of a 6-band line-up, especially on a Monday night but the talent was so awe inspiring that I could not peel my peepers off the stage all night.
First up was SAV, a female hip-hop artist who totally slayed! SAV has a casual, spoken word approach to the lyrics and her delivery is coherent and powerful. SAV is 420 friendly and has a dope, old school, urban sound that’s a hybrid of Queen Latifah and Nicky Minaj.
Local progressive punk rockers Cat Flaps erupted on stage. In typical punk rock style the lead singer and guitarist took their clothes off and played in their underwear. It’s hard to believe these peeps are just teenagers with the intensity they have on stage. Their vibe is like Bikini Kill meets X Ray Spex. There was also a little bit of mosh pit / slam dancing action which you don’t see too often in Nashville.
PHENIX, a local pop artist was up next with two back up dancers. PHENIX is seriously cool, urban, pop music with a tonne of rad hooks and some awesome compositional elements. I felt like I was seeing Lady Gaga’s first show before she made it big. A burlesque dancer even came on up on stage during her set – I mean seriously who doesn’t like boobies?!
Nashville rock veterans Thelma and the Sleaze were up next. These ladies are always fun to see live. Thelma and the Sleaze have a grungy, southern rock thing going on. There’s plenty of action on guitar and their new keyboardist is pretty damn awesome. The new line-up seems to be going well with a bigger sound that’s a bit like a rock epic. They remind me a bit of The Screaming Females or White Mystery. They could probably make a good song for a Tarantino film.
Last up on the night was Dante Marsh, a local singer-songwriter. Marsh seems like a very peaceful, loving soul, which magnetically attracts audience members and even other percussionists on stage. His songs are well crafted and in the ball park of Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and Xavier Rudd.
