Local Natives

Bijou Theatre Center
Date: Friday April 18, 2014
Time: 8:00 pm
Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: Bijou Theatre
Price: $23.50 Advance/ $25 Day of Show
Much has happened between Local Natives' critically-acclaimed album Gorilla Manor and the 2013 release of Hummingbird. From rave reviews to brilliant television performances, Gorilla Manor launched the band onto the global stage, saw them headlining theaters throughout America and Europe, opening for bands like Arcade Fire and The National, and winning them lauded slots at major festivals around the world. The band says Hummingbird was created from the emotional framework of being stretched between two opposite poles. In the two years following Gorilla Manor's release, the band saw the highest highs and the lowest lows they had ever experienced together. While many of their wildest musical ambitions were coming to fruition, personal relationships faltered or fell apart, and a close family member suddenly passed away. The songs on Hummingbird embody that similar dichotomy ' they are fragile and powerful, opulent and spare, tense and poised.

Lexus Luxury Performances featuring John Legend

The Historic Tennessee Theatre Foundation
Date: Saturday April 19, 2014
Time: 8:00 pm
Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: Tennessee Theatre
Price: $69
John Legend has revealed several personas during his award-winning career. Singer/Songwriter. Musician. Producer. Philanthropist. Entrepreneur. To quote music industry pioneer Quincy Jones, the nine-time Grammy winner is simply “a genius.” Writing about Legend for Time’s 2009 tally of the 100 most influential people, Jones noted, “We’ve seen only the tip of the iceberg. For what he has already achieved in his career, it is going to be fun watching where he goes from here.” The fun begins now. Legend, one of the industry’s most innovative artists, returns after five years with his much-anticipated fourth solo album, Love in the Future. Taking R&B/soul to the next level, Legend creates an immersive experience about romance, love, hope, commitment and optimism. Enhancing the experience: a rich, melodic soundscape--accented by compelling interludes--that fully integrates the musician’s gospel and pop influences, classical training and unerring hip-hop/soul sensibilities. Love in the Future is a celebration and meditation on love,” says Legend. “I was envisioning what a modern soul album should sound like; wanting to create something compelling. Even in these single-driven days, I still want to reinforce the idea of listening to an album as a whole piece of work.”
