Adia Victoria: Tonight at JJ’s Bohemia!

January 31, 2015 0 comments


Last October, we were pumped to hear Adia Victoria at JJ’s Bohemia for her debut Chattanooga show, but due to the 2 weeks that JJ’s was shut-down in the Fall, we were disappointed to miss her from the cancelled show… Well, today Adia is bringing it to JJ’s for real this time… and we can’t wait!

Her debut LP hasn’t dropped yet, but with the first little taste of material, like her first single ‘Stuck In The South’ – produced by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Those Darlins) – and the buzz we’ve been hearing from the Nashville scene, we’ve been pretty dang eager to finally catch her and the band live… A band that also consists of Ruby Rogers (The Black Belles) on bass and Tiffany Minton (Heavy Cream) on drums.

Add one of our new favorite locals Mad Libre along with Swoon and Cutlass Cult, plus free admission to all Aquarius signs ($7 for all non-aquarians), then we’re all in-store for a great time tonight! RSVP HERE via Facebook (and for details).

Check out Adia Victoria’s ‘Stuck In The South’ below and follow Adia HERE for the latest news:

TSR Exclusive: Kip Bradley LP Sampler

January 5, 2015 0 comments


There is no better way to kick off the new year than with new tunes… especially if those tunes are pretty damn good. For the past week we’ve been diggin’ into Kip Bradley’s debut solo full-length, ‘Hunky Diamond,’ which basically has been on repeat since we first dug in.

Kip, who is also the frontman for Chattanooga’s SharkWeek, has taken a break from heavier riffs and howls, showing us a chiller, softer side, switching to an Americana vibed sound with slight nods to his Rock n ‘Roll roots. The first single from ‘Hunky Diamond’ is called Split Wide’ and is about as uptempo and heavy as the album gets.

Stream that track below as well as a video sampler of the LP that features solo live takes as well as recorded tracks from the album with narratives scripted by Clark Williams of Big Kitty. No word yet on when the LP will drop, but till then, these few things below will hold you over. All we know is we hope this record gets pressed on wax, it’s definitely vinyl worthy:

Also, catch Kip live thought-out Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia during his Winter Southeast tour:

1/10 – Smith’s Olde Bar – Atlanta, GA
1/17 – JJ’s Bohemia – Chattanooga, TN
1/21 – The Stone Fox – Nashville, TN
1/24 – The Nick – Birmingham, AL
1/29 – Normaltown Hall – Athens, GA
