THU 3/10 @ The Basement East
SOUTH BYE ft. ELEL, Kind, The Gills & Soft Bodies
presented by GOLDTOOTH, INC.

Four of Nashville's finest acts are playing one last show before heading down to SXSW, where they will win over critics, sign lucrative record deals, and WIN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! 

These brave souls are sacrificing health & safety in the selfless pursuit of fame, fortune and corporate sponsorship, so let's send 'em off with style! Or at least, let's send 'em off with some cash to cover travel expenses! Because- let's face it- SXSW is super expensive and bands don't get paid to play. 

Tickets are $10 and show starts at 9pm. Don't ask to get on the guestlist, please and thanks!

  • ELEL

    ELEL

    Alternative

    ELEL's sound has been praised as “world pop”, a tag that reflects the musical culture of their hometown as much as their diverse influences, which include Prince, Frank Ocean and Vampire Weekend. Viral hit “40 Watt,” landed the band a record deal, and debut LP “Geode” was released on Mom + Pop music in 2016, featuring singles “Kiss Kiss” (Grey’s Anatomy), “Animal” (premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 channel) and “When She Walks.” They toured the country and appeared in Mike Birbiglia's feature film Don't Think Twice performing their song "40 Watt". 

     

    Now ELEL returns with new single “Be Yeah" - a tune that showcases the feverish live-performance energy they've become known for. This marks the beginning of a very busy and exciting 2018 for the band, who plan to release “as much music as possible” throughout the year. Most of 2017 was spent writing and recording over two dozen heartfelt and honest songs, during a year of personal difficulties for band leader Ben Elkins and enormous struggle for a lot us as a country. 

    On lead single "Be Yeah", Elkins sings of dancing in the hot kettle of life, and encourages all of us try to do the same. 

  • The Gills

    The Gills

    Pop

    Originally from Pensacola, Florida, The Gills made their way to Nashville, TN, to push themselves out of their hometown comfort zone. Years later, they've put the finishing touches on the most cathartic songs of the band's career yet.

    Written after years of touring, The Gills' self-titled album explodes with all the pressure of a shaken-bottle of soda whose cap has finally flown off. It's an album about letting go of the struggles that are so common to working musicians — the long drives, the vulnerability, the struggle to stay true to yourself — and embracing everything that's great about rock & roll. The songs are simple rock epics that build their way toward crashing choruses. There's no posturing. No disguises.

    Frontman Jesse Wheeler began writing songs as a teenager, looking for an outlet to help him put a positive spin on his childhood battle with Leukemia. At first, he focused on humorous tunes designed to make his friends (and Wheeler himself) laugh. Later, as his health and songwriting chops strengthened, the music became bolder and more bombastic. The Prince brothers — Matt (drums) and Andy (bass) — climbed aboard after Wheeler recovered and shortly after met keyboardist/guitarist Justin Locke, who became the group's fourth member.

    The band co-produced their latest LP with Kyle Dreaden who took songs like "Aria," "Lemonade" and "Gimme Gimme" to a new invigorating space where gritty rock and pop sensibilities live harmoniously side by side. In concert, The Gills adopt the same in-your-face stance that fills their self-titled album. The Gills are making themselves comfortable occupying the middle ground between college radio and the Top 40 format, while remaining true to their creative explorations.

    So, when life gives you lemons...
