November Spot Night preview

Nov. 6—Little Daylight
Straight out of Brooklyn, New York, Little Daylight is an alternative pop group that began in 2012, when the three members—Nikki Taylor, Eric Zeiler and Matt Lewkowicz—gathered to practice remixes of songs by their favorite artists. Since then, their popularity has grown exponentially. Their first live performance was at the yearly music and arts festival, SXSW, in Austin, Texas in 2013. Their first TV appearance was on Late Night with Seth Meyers in early 2014. In the past year, they have also toured with Bastille and Charlie XCX, and their popular single, “Overdose,” has gained them recognition.

Nov. 13—Diarrhea Planet (with opener Sails)
This six-member band for Tennessee is sure to make your Thursday night a rockin’ one. Diarrhea Planet is a rock and roll band that formed in 2009. They have been exalted for their wild shows (which often include covers of rock and roll legends like Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix and Third Eye Blind). They recently performed at Bonnaroo Music Festival, SXSW and the Governors Ball Music Festival.

Nov. 20—Dylan Scott (with opener Jordan Genovese)
Dylan Scott is a Louisiana-born country singer-songwriter who is rising in the country charts. His single “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy” was on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for a whopping 10 weeks, and in April, it peaked at #54. His new self-titled CD is relatable, soulful and a crowd-pleaser.

Dec. 4—Generationals (with opener Midnight Slander)
The arrival of this indie duo at Spot Night is highly anticipated. Generationals is composed of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, two New Orleans natives with a passion for writing and recording music. While recording their debut album, “Con Law,” in 2008 in Washington D.C., the duo was surrounded by news about the 2008 presidential election, and the generational issues that split the two candidates; hence, the band name “Generationals” came into existence. Their music sounds, to me, like an alluring mix between the old-timey music that our parents enjoyed and the indie/pop music we listen to today. This duo is sure to give an amazing performance.
