The Joy Of Painting Debut Video for "I'm Reelin'"

Since the release of Tender Age (their best release to date), The Joy Of Painting have been busy. From hand-stuffing vinyl orders in their living room to preparing for their album release show at Grimey's on Saturday, it's impressive that the band could find time to film and release a music video. But, with the help of Chris Keyes, the video for "I'm Reelin'" was premiered on Friday. The video features the band playing the song in their house, an accurate and pleasant preview of what to expect from their release show. Which is on Saturday. See you there. –Brianne Turner


Stream the Joy Of Painting's Newest, "Tender Age"

The Joy Of Painting's newest, Tender Age, will be available to the masses on Tuesday, May 21st via South Division Records, but our friends over at No Country for New Nashville are doing us all a great service by streaming the album a week early.

Clocking in right around the 20 minute mark, Tender Age's only fault is that it doesn't go on forever. Just in time for summer weather and pool hangs, all of the teasers and hype surrounding the Joy Of Painting's latest effort have paid off. If you start streaming now and buy yourself a copy of Tender Age on Tuesday, you'll know enough of the lyrics to sing along at the band's in-store performance at Grimey's on June 8th. –Brianne Turner

East Nashville Underground Announces Full Summer Lineup

East Nashville's quarterly underground music festival is getting bigger with each season and the summer lineup has been announced. Beginning August 17th and running through the weekend, East Nashville Underground will feature performances from 18 bands, including The Joy Of Painting, Chancellor Warhol, and Sam Lewis, as well as Oh No No's farewell show.

Wristbands are $12 per night or $20 for the weekend and cover your beer tab for the duration of your night/weekend. The festival was recently sponsored by Fat Bottom Brewing, which means you can consume a lot of good beer (and a lot of good music) on a PBR budget.

All other details about the event can be found here. RIP, Oh No No. --Brianne Turner
