Houndmouth, Will Hoge, The Apache Relay, More to Headline This Summer's Nashville Dancin' Series

Posted By on Thu, Apr 24, 2014 at 4:37 PM

Remember Nashville Dancin'? It's the Riverfront Park concert series that debuted last summer, kinda-sorta an update on the very popular Dancin' in the District series. (Longtime Nashvillians should recall that Dancin' in the District brought performers including Cake, The Psychedelic Furs, Blondie, Better Than Ezra, Superdrag and more to the banks of the Cumberland from 1993 until 2005.) Well, last year's kickoff Nashville Dancin' lineup proved to be ... how shall I put this delicately ... underwhelming.

But hey! Nashville Dancin' is back with this year's lineup, and it is absolutely a step in the right direction. Taking place every Thursday evening between June 12 and July 31 at Riverfront Park, this year's Dancin' will feature headliners including Houndmouth, Xavier Rudd, Will Hoge, Hayes Carll and more. The most Cream-approved bill, in case you wanted to know, is the July 3 shindig, which will feature performances from The Apache Relay (stream their brand-new record here), Steelism, Promised Land Sound and El El. The shows will go down at 6 p.m. ("doors" at 5), there will be food trucks, and each one is free. See more info here.

And if you're wondering what you'll do with your summertime Thursdays once Nashville Dancin' has passed, no worries: Live on the Green announced their dates yesterday, and they're doing the Thursday night thing from August 14-28, plus a three-day stretch Sept. 4-6 (lineup to come).
