La Paz Light Night: Coach Vs. Potamus

Remember those new dance parties at La Paz Restaurant we mentioned a while ago? No? Well we went, and it turns out they're pretty sweet. That DJ Potamus can throw down some pretty phat tunes, there's no cover, and the drink specials don't hurt either. But this week is going to be even sweeter because Coach (from 12th and Porter's Coach Vs. Kase) is going to be the guest DJ this week! Looks like they're pulling out all the stops this time, so make sure you check out Nashville's newest weekly dance party this Friday! 


BANDS: Submit Your Music for The Year End Best of Nashville 2009

Three nominees for our Year End Best of Nashville Poll will be chosen through an Open Contest (the others from a jury of local "scene makers").

Submit your music for The Deli's Best of Nashville Year End Poll HERE by 12.23.2009.

To be eligible your band needs to have music available online and have played live at least once in 2009 (and not to be signed to a major). By submitting, you will also add your band to our chart system - which will get you some exposure in the future.

The process we have implemented to choose the Best Emerging Nashville Artist of 2009 is a little complicated - if you are interested in knowing how it works please go here.

Bonnaroo 2009 DVD Out Now!

Ah Bonnaroo, you seem so far away. 2009 had possibly the best Bonnaroo yet (yeah we stand by it, this year's line up was one of the GREATEST EVER) and now we can finally relive all those great memories...that we don't really remember that well. Heh, what can we say? We had a great time! Check out the preview for the new DVD below! And don't forget to pre-order your tickets for 2010 here. They even have a layaway plan!


Pre-order Parachute Musical's New Single

Wow, local indie pop kings Parachute Musical are releasing more music. These guys sure have a great turn over rate; seems like every time we turn around they have a new recording available. Well here they are again with new single entitled No Comfort, which is scheduled for a January 8th 2010 release date. But wait! we heard it through the grapevine that if you pre-order you'll receive the single before the normal release date. Consider it an early Christmas present...that comes after the holidays. You can pre-order the single here.

While we're talking about them, make sure you check out PM's new photo contest. Check out all the details here.

Keep up the good work guys!
