Headliner: The Foxies
The Foxies are a 4 piece alternative rock band based in Nashville, TN and led by the charismatic front woman Julia Bullock. Featured on NOW That’s What I Call Music: 63, The Foxies are quickly becoming Nashville favorites, with performances at Bonnaroo 2018, Live on The Green 2018 and an impressive 225 final ticket count at the 200 cap High Watt, its first headline play at a major Nashville venue, in summer 2018. Slick but heartfelt and authentic, The Foxies offer a real party you can both dance and listen to.

Known as the first band ever to be kicked out of Wal-Mart for playing an illegal show, Brett Newski & the No Tomorrow bring a 90’s alternative sound across America this fall.
Newski has played over 1200 shows on every continent except Antarctica. Most recently he’s been supporting Violent Femmes, PIXIES, Chuck Ragan, & New Pornographers in the US.
His latest LP, “Life Upside Down” was produced by Hutch Harris of Sub-Pop & Saddle Creek legends The Thermals and engineered by Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould), “Life Upside Down” is a beautiful catharsis to a happier brain and sense of belonging. If you frequently find yourself stuck in your own head traffic, this record might help get you free.
Brett Newski has certainly kicked his own ass over the past 6 years, touring infinitely (mostly alone) and wandering down the rabbit hole of anxiety, depression, and wallowing self-doubt. All of these negatives have blossomed into positive creative energy on his third LP.
“Anxiety can actually be a good thing. If you use it right, that nervous energy can be channeled into motivation or creativity,” explains Newski. “Even the most seemingly confident people have self doubt.”
