Behold Nashville’s local rock royalty in a true clash of the titans! JEFF the Brotherhood, arguably Music City’s most beloved brotherly grunge duo, and Diarrhea Planet, another local six-pack of guitar-wielding punks, have been playing together since Glenn Danzig’s house was the primo place for house shows, fueling one of the country’s most thrilling, restless rock scenes since way before Jack White even built his Third Man Records compound down the street. Besides releasing five original LPs via Infinity Cat Recordings (which they founded with their dad, songwriter Robert Orall in 2002) and putting out countless works by other artists (Be Your Own Pet, Diarrhea Planet, PUJOL, Heavy Cream, Ed Schraeder’s Music Beat) on the same label, JEFF just released their new EP Dig the Classics in September via Warner Brothers, which features covers of the Pixies, Beck, Colleen Green, My Bloody Valentine, The Wipers and Teenage Fanclub. In a shit-storm of flying beer cans, mystic shredding and long hair, their live show will be a chance for outsiders to crowd surf on a gnarly greenwave and catch a rare glimpse of some underground Nashville magic.
