Each year Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival becomes the seventh-largest city in Tennessee for just one weekend, welcoming an influx of music lovers to the farm in Manchester. But Bonnaroo is far from the only cultural hub in the state, even for that mind-blowingly memorable weekend in June. Just an hour down the highway lies Nashville, whose reputation for cranking out radio-friendly country music is only the beginning of the sonic delight that the city has to offer.
We spent the weekend before ‘Roo enjoying the warm (okay, blisteringly hot) Tennessee sun at our own little oasis in East Nashville, where we were lucky enough to have a few of the artists on the stacked lineup stop by and play for us. Fortunately for Los Angeles five-piece Milo Greene, they stopped by just as the sun was beginning to set, giving us not only some relief from the heat but also a hazy setting perfect for their soulful sound. The band performed a stripped-down session that placed the focus on their stirring vocal harmonies and percussion.
