Music in This Week's Summer Guide | Nashville Cream
If you a pick up the latest copy of the Scene on this overcast, 54-degree day, you'll see that it's ourannual Summer Guide, in which we run through some promising upcoming events and show off season-appropriate pictures of notable locals (some of whom are wearing swimsuits). That's localsongstress Adia Victoria and her band over there on the right (see The Spin's recent words on Victoria here), and we also photographed Nashville rapper Rio.But in addition to our shots of these photogenic locals, this week's ish also features a sharp-lookingsummertime event calendar, and you can see the PDF of that here. Follow me after the jump to seesome of the music-related events we highlighted, plus a list of highly anticipated local summerreleases. June 5-8: CMA FestThe CMA Music Festival -- 'Merica's favorite NASCAR-sized, star-studded annual explosion of pop-country -- hits the heart of Nashville for its 44th year. For country fans, the four-day festival isground zero for seeing the genre's hottest stars, which this year include Keith Urban, MirandaLambert, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town and the like, at LP Field, along with many of thegenre's fresh faces and midlevel up-and-comers at Riverfront Park and various pop-up venues in the vicinity of Lower Broad. ADAM GOLD June 12, 19 & 26: Nashville Dancin'This year's Nashville Dancin'-- a sort of update on the popular Dancin' in thehttp://wallinside.com/post-15741782-downloading-mp3s-made-easy-free-article-courtesy-of-articlecit ycom.html District series that brought performers like Cake, The Psychedelic Furs and Blondie tothe banks of the Cumberland from 1993 until 2005 -- will take place every Thursday eveningbetween June 12 and July 31 at Riverfront Park. Headliners include Houndmouth, Xavier Rudd,Lettuce, Dumpstaphunk, Hayes Carll, Will Hoge and more, with the undercard populated by Scene-approved locals like Los Colognes, Steelism, Promised Land Sound, Rayland Baxter, Sol Cat, JamesWallace and the Naked Light and more. D. PATRICK RODGERS June 12-15: Bonnaroo An event that needs no introduction, Middle Tennessee's world-famous four-day musical partyreturns to nearby Manchester for its 13th installment. This year, the big story is co-headliner Kanyecoming back to the farm to redeem his notorious 2008 appearance. But Bonnaroo isn't the place toshow up in hopes of seeing a train wreck -- it's where one (or more like 80,000) goes to see aglorious clash of styles from across the pop-music spectrum. This year's bill boasts headliners likeElton John and Jack White, legends like Nick Cave and The Flaming Lips, ravers like Skrillex and CutCopy, comedians such as Neal Brennan and Hannibal Buress and indie-rock under-card staplesranging from Real Estate to Vampire Weekend. ADAM GOLD June 20: Philip Glass and Tim Fain at OZPhilip Glass is without question one of the greatest composers of the past century, and his influence
can be heard everywhere: in symphony halls, on movie soundtracks, in the work of Brian Eno, DavidBowie, Radiohead and countless other acts. Glass will perform solo, and with violinist Tim Fain. Fainmay not be a household name like Glass, but if you've seen the film Black Swan, you know his work,both on the soundtrack and on-screen. He's an immensely gifted performer, playing with a ferociousintensity that well suits Glass' compositions. JACK SILVERMAN June 28: Nashville Scene 25th Anniversary PartyIt's our party and we'll cry if we want to, but we probably won't want to, because you'll be there andit'll be fun.

PATRICK RODGERSI also wrote the below piece on this summer's forthcoming albums:Sweet Releases: This Summer's Forthcoming RecordsSummer 2014 will see the release of an eclectic assortment of local releases from established actsand up-and-comers alike. Local rock 'n' roller Daniel Pujol and his PUJOL will unveil KLUDGE -- abrainy, infectious collection of songs I like to think of as "philoso-punk" -- via Saddle Creek Recordson May 20 (see story here), while fellow youngsters Cherub will make their major label debut with Year of the Caprese, a collection of funky, unctuous EDM, May 27 on Columbia Records. Also on May 27, supergroup-of-sorts Spanish Gold (featuring My Morning Jacket's Patrick Hallahan,Brownout's Adrian Quesada, and Hacienda and City and Colour's Dante Schwebel) will issue itsdebut, South of Nowhere. On June 3 -- just days before her scheduled appearance at LP Field for this year's CMA Music Festival -- country queen Miranda Lambert will issue her fifth studio album,Platinum. Noted folk singer Mary Gauthier's Trouble and Love drops June 10, while Music City'smost heralded string band, Old Crow Medicine Show, will unleash Remedy on July 1.But perhaps the most hotly anticipated Nashville-centric release of the summer will come fromerstwhile White Stripe Jack White, whose Lazaretto hits shelves on June 10. The follow-up to White's2012 solo debut Blunderbuss will be issued in multiple formats, among them a Third Man Records"Ultra LP" version with special features including locked grooves, a "hand-etched hologram," two vinyl-only tracks hidden under the labels and more. --DPR In putting together that little piece, I hit up the fine folks at local label Infinity Cat, who informed bethat the next installment in the Casey Weissbuch-curated cassette series will come courtesy of Boston noise band Guerilla Toss.
