FAR OUT NASHVILLE PRESENTS >>> BRETT NETSON / CLARKE & THE HIMSELFS / THE CHEWERS &&& GUNTHER DOUG
Woah! Huge thanks to the Nashville Scene for naming Far Out Nashville as the "BEST NEW FESTIVAL" in their Best of Nashville issue! As Nashville's first and only psychedelic festival, we are honored to receive this award and know we wouldn't be anything without YOU - the Far Out Folk who made it happen.
FAR OUT NASHVILLE PRESENTS >> THE HOLIFIELDS!
Our psychedelic basement collaboration with Bl_ank was a far out success, held at a word-of-mouth basement venue on the outskirts of Nashville known as The Mouth Hole and run by experimental grunge freaks The Chewers. Labrys Light show projected from the sidelines and local artist Lydia Kozar displayed her stunning art on a makeshift gallery wall, as her niece adorned the walls with a chalk gallery of her own, wearing a hand-drawn band shirt supporting Bl_ank.
FAR OUT NASHVILLE PRESENTS >>> NAAN VIOLENCE!
This past weekend was such a blast with our Far Out friends -- The Holifields!
Hailing from Knoxville, these progressive psych rockers brought the house down at The Cobra in East Nashville on Saturday night. Admission to the show included a pair of Far Out Portable Light Shows (aka diffraction glasses) and visual projections by Labrys Light Show. Shoutout to Black Venus, Mesmer Tea and Gypsy Canyon Sunrise for being excellent supporting acts on this beautiful bill.
FAR OUT FALL CALENDAR >>>
This past Sunday, we hosted sitarist and mega-shredder Arjun Kulharya at Fond Object Records in the Riverside Village area of Nashville. Situated behind the record shop is a cozy house, the porch of which is a makeshift stage for various live events, and we were so glad to bring Arjun's band Naan Violence back for a repeat performance after their June appearance at Nashville's first music and art festival devoted completely to psychedelia, Far Out Nashville.
FAR OUT NASHVILLE PRESENTS >>> BLACK MOON MOTHER

FAR OUT FEST 2017 RECAP >>>
We missed you all so much since FAR OUT NASHVILLE, Nashville's first and only psych music festival, that we decided to throw another party. It is our extreme honor to help debut BLACK MOON MOTHER. Their unveiling took place at the East Room in East Nashville with special guests LABRYS LIGHT SHOW, divination by DAUGHTER OF CUPS, and featured local acts THE SHADOWTONES and CHILLWITCH. Opening the show was ANNACHRISTIE SAPPHIRE from Joshua Tree, CA, and she set the tone early for the cosmic journey into the collective unconscious present at the show.

Imagine, if you will, a road trip enveloped in dreamy vintage hooks, swirling vocals and infectious rhythms that will keep you moving in time until the end. Jason Edmonds - the man in the Magic Castle, so to speak - cites waking up after a “spiritual journey” next to train tracks in 2005 as the catalyst that lead to the project’s incarnation.

FAR OUT BAND HIGHLIGHT >>> LAWNDRY
So many fantastic people are involved with the making of Far Out Nashville: Nashville's first annual psychedelic art and music festival in East Nashville. Click the links below to check out more about all these talented humans from all over our wild planet.
FAR OUT BAND HIGHLIGHT! >>> HR_Lexy
A super collab of sorts, with members wrung from Sudonistas, Bad Cop and The Ascent of Everest, Lawndry washes your brain with a variety of fuzzy smooth and trippin' grooves, thought provoking talk-singing, and percussion for days (get ready for some serious wind chime action). Come get clean with them at Nashville's first psych fest, Far Out Nashville, on Saturday June 17th at 6:30pm at the East Room.
FAR OUT BAND HIGHLIGHT >>> THE ASCENT OF EVEREST
One of our favorite discoveries of the past year was HR_Lexy and we can't be more ecstatic to welcome them to the lineup for Far Out Nashville 2017, Nashville's first annual psych music and art festival. Combining otherworldly electric beats, cosmic goddess vocals and a strong, dark groove, HR_Lexy transcends genre barriers and will leave you feeling some type of way.
FAR OUT NASHVILLE ANNOUNCEMENT: LINEUP CHANGE!
The Ascent of Everest is one of those bands that when you watch live you finally understand the importance of fine tuned dynamics. They gracefully ascend (and descend) from beautiful ambience to crushing power and back. Far Out Nashville will be their first show of 2017 and we couldn't be more excited to get our fix of their symphonic post-psych doomgaze. Get your tix now for Nashville's first annual psych fest >> here. Dive on in to The Ascent of Everest >> here, you’ll be glad you took the trip.
FAR OUT NASHVILLE FINAL PRESHOW RECAP
Life is happening like warp drive and sometimes bands gotta do their thing. Far Out Nashville regretfully announces The Beech Benders are unable to appear as part of the Far Out Nashville 2017 lineup, but we have found a worthy replacement to soothe the burn. BUMMR CITY will be stepping up to the stage Saturday, June 17th at the East Room to serve us a batch of badness. >>>
GOLDEN DAWN ARKESTRA >>> A FAR OUT PRESHOW!
On May 18, 2017 the backyard of Fond Object transformed into a immersive psychedelic dreamscape. As the sun started it's descent in East Nashville, local musicians gathered on the floors of the old house, draped in fabrics, incense, and liquid light projections. The hour long freeform drone session included mind-bending echoes of synths, singing bowls, a harp, guitars, and a didgeridoo, to name a few. After the soundbath, the Ra-praising Golden Dawn Arkestra marched through the crowd of local cosmonauts and landed on stage for their out of this world performance. We couldn't think of a better way to prepare for the psychfest that is Far Out Nashville.
LINEUP CHANGE! >>> ☯️
We are honored to announce the final Far Out Nashville festival preshow May 18th at Fond Object Records with GOLDEN DAWN ARKESTRA. Opening the show will be a PSYCHEDELIC DRONEBATH featuring local musicians SARAH BANDY (Hula Hi-Fi), TYLER WALKER (Meth Dad), DEVIN LAMP (The Ascent of Everest), members of MESMER TEA, PHANTOM FARMER and WANDERING OUT accompanied by the psychedelic monks in LABRYS LIGHT SHOW.
With the yin comes the yang, and chaos is a ladder. HOLY WAVE has sadly had to drop from the FAR OUT 2017 lineup but we are working tirelessly to bring you sevenfold as many surprises to make up for it.
Hang in there like a kitty cat and stay finely tuned like an alien probe,
The Heads of Far Out ✌️👽
