With news of their first headlining tour, we got the chance to check out lovelytheband in Nashville and at Hangout Festival. lovelytheband hit the stage just as the sun started to set and the venue came alive with more fans. Opening with “Make You Feel Pretty” the band set the scene with the song giving off a similar vibe to the time of night and finally for us in Nashville, great weather.

The band was a great compliment to Vance Joy, who was headlining, and the crowd seemed to enjoy the set. LTB played through their gamut of tracks “Coachella”, “Make You Feel Pretty”, smash hit “Broken”, recently released “These are My Friends”, and even a great cover of “Pony”. Also wanted to point out that at one point during the set front man Mitchy Collins brought out the band’s tour manager for the crowd to sing him happy birthday.

lovelytheband was actually the first band I got to see this year at Hangout. Playing the Beach Stage on the first day of the festival is no small task. With spirits high as the weekend began the band hit the stage for about 40 sweaty minutes. One thing I thought was really cool was that I saw the guys multiple times throughout the weekend, talking with reporters, fans, but also taking time to enjoy the other artists sets.

Check out the band’s website below and make sure to be on the lookout for more new music!

    Nashville Native, Born and Raised. The best way to describe myself is a mix of Phil Dunphy and Ferris Bueller. Growing up in Nashville I was exposed to all kinds of music but fell in love with Punk Rock and Pop music in high school. My focus is in the undiscovered, but the deserving. I'm the friend that wants to see the opening acts. I'm the friend that sends you music just because I want you to experience it with me. There is nothing more satisfying than someone else enjoying a band or song I'm into. I'm currently doing A&R for a small indie label in Nashville, while also serving as a promoter for many venues in the area. I love Jurassic Park, Blink-182, the 90's, and live music. I also spend my weekend's DJing weddings and cheering on the Vols/Titans/Braves. I showcase music every Wednesday on Spotify through my "Wade's Wednesday" playlist and also contribute to the "Pop Punk's Not Dead" Spotify playlist. Let's connect!
