Local advocates Jessica Tate and Matt Bishara have teamed up with several community vendors and entertainers to present ‘Queen City Survival: A Community for a Cure.’ The one-day event will feature a full day of music, food, and lectures/videos focused on raising awareness and funding for LLS.
The event will be held at the Columbia Community Center, a recently opened event space just outside the Columbia-Tusculum area on Eastern Ave. East side favorites Eli’s BBQ and Fireside Wood-Fired Pizza will be on hand to serve food throughout the day. In addition to entertainment and refreshments the day will be full of raffles, with all proceeds going to the LLS. Read more

The songs do all the convincing on his new album The No-Hit Wonder. There’s a timeless craftsmanship in these deceptively simple songs about love and home, losses and dreams. Branan’s had his fair share of each since completing his critically acclaimed Bloodshot debut MUTT in 2012, losing several beloved family members, getting married, and having two kids. He spent all this time touring heavily with artists across the spectrum, including The Gaslight Anthem and Jason Isbell (who appears here on “You Make Me” and “The Highway Home”). The pull of settling down and push of life’s unavoidable unsettlings inform much of the new record, which navigates the lows while celebrating the highs with fresh urgency. Read more
