Having served as a storefront starting in the late 1800’s, Acme is now well known as a multilevel venue with multiple bars and event spaces.

A modest stage faced rows and rows of packed seating, with audience members actively waiting for the show to start. Lucero performed as part of an unplugged series on April 29th, with direct support from East Tennessee native Joey Kneiser.

Check out our thoughts on the tour, which also included Make Them Suffer and Erra, after the jump.

Jimmy Eat World | The Ryman Auditorium | Nashville, TN

If you know anything about the city of Nashville, you’re well aware that The Ryman Auditorium has been the home of more high profile country artists than you can count dating back to the '60's. When Jimmy Eat World were announced to be playing at The Ryman, it was a no brainer that we needed to be there to cover it. It was a wonderful added bonus that Microwave and The Hotelier were brought along to share the night.
