As mentioned before, here’s a rundown of the acts playing this Thursday night at Exit/In for Sad Spaceman Promotions second showcase, Quioxtic II. We’re mildly involved sponsoring the event along with Kustom Thrills Tattooes and Bluegrass Hollywood Records, and we’re enthused about the lineup. Some Nashville standby’s are playing, along with some veterans of the industry, with a few giveaways and surprises thrown into the mix. Sad Spaceman is accepting donations for local animal rescues, to hop over to www.proverbs1210rescue.org/ after reading about the lineup to check out what to bring. Thursday's show starts at 8pm; tickets are $10 in advance (get 'em here) and $12 at the door, and the show is 21+
Hot Action Cop:
Hot Action Cop have been around for the last decade, with their irreverent pop finding its way into movie franchises and video game soundtracks. Their album “Listen Up!” was released this year, bridging the gap from their 2009 EP. The band is making an appearance in their homebase this Thursday.
The Switchmen are the embodiment of Southern rock; greasy, gritty, no questions, no apologies. November 18th saw the release of “Congress Hotel,” a 5-track powerhouse of an EP that shows off the breadth and depth of their songwriting abilities. They’re also recorded a series of live videos from the first Quioxtic showcase at Exit/In back in July, and unveiled the first last week. This video for “I Don’t Know” is a close approximation of what to expect on Thursday, minus the beer in your hand and fist pumping bodies on all sides of ya.
Regulaton Nine represents the heavier side of rock and roll in Nashville. With a little bit of metal and a little bit of thrash, they’ve returned to the live show circuit after a brief hiatus, bringing it the only way they know how: hard.
Alabama-born, Army-raised Nashville transplant Asheira has all the makings of a rock goddess: she’s equal parts swagger and breathy vocals, and already knows that the best backup singer is a mean guitar lick. Check out the video for her brand new single “Sugar” to understand that she is fully capable of cashing every check she writes.
