BMI and Alt 97.5 returned to the Basement East for the first of six Eastside Sounds shows this year. Bluesy, psychedelic rockers The Minks kicked off the night of alternative music discovery followed by dreamy acid pop band, TWEN. Silver Cord Cinema enhanced the atmosphere with a special liquid light show emanating a psychedelic vibe throughout the show. Each night’s show offers free admission, a “happy half-hour” open bar sponsored by Bulleit Bourbon before the performance, and two up-and-coming acts from Nashville’s emerging alternative scene. The series is set to continue April 23 with additional dates on June 25, August 20, September 26, and October 30.
