Most Likely to Bootleg Your Show (With Your Permission)

Since their inception last February, Cold Lunch Recordings has been working hard to make sure Nashville has fun. They’ve also been tireless in their efforts to spread the gospel of local punk, psych, and garage rock through shows and releases that include the likes of Thelma and the Sleaze, Quichenight, Keeps, and many, many more. So whether you want to buy a (authorized) bootleg of that great show you just saw, throw a sad-birthday-themed release, see a stacked bill at a local venue, or go bobbing for Jell-O shots, Cold Lunch Recordings has you covered. Catch their second annual Spewfest on January 13, which will feature a swath of local talent playing on three stages at The East Room and Cobra. And check out the label here.
