The Wild Feathers
- Who are the Feathers?: Nashville’s Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns, Preston Wimberly, Ben Dumas
- What’s wild?: their sound, an adrenaline-laced blend of classic rock, blues, country, folk, and five-part harmonies that’s akin to driving down a long winding country highway going way, way too fast
- Put another way: “We like folk music, but we’re going to have a distortion pedal on when we do it,” said Wimberly when describing their sound
- Check out: “The Ceiling,” one of the standout tracks from their 2013 self-titled album
- How The Apache Relay’s members spend their free time: driving around Tennessee and Alabama, listening to the Motown, Bruce Springsteen, and modern-rock records that define their sound
- The story behind Desert Noises’s 27 Ways: it’s the band’s record of 27 ways to break away from a Mormon family to live the life of a touring rock ‘n’ roller
If the building at 1308 4th Street had a mouth, it could tell many stories. It could tell of its birth as The University Theater in 1915 and how its infancy was spent in vaudeville, presenting everything from minstrel shows to early silent films. It could tell of the art deco remodel by architects Jack Liebenberg and Seeman Kaplan that turned it into a full-time movie house for the next 50 years. And it could tell of its days in the '90s and early 2000s when it worked as an underground club and a photography studio. But today, in its own way, the theater speaks mostly of the current music scene, hosting everyone from Mumford and Sons to Feist and Saul Williams.
