Wednesday, April 22

There is a lot of great stuff going on over the next 8 days.. Wednesday, April 22 Route #4 and Newton Wear Test.

Show up at 5:00 at NRC if you want to try out a pair of Newtons for the run.  (Yes.  A "wear test" means that you can actually take a pair of shoes out for a run without having to purchase them!)  Our run starts at 6:00 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.

Thursday, April 23 - Final Thursday night workout for 2015

It's not really a workout since these workouts are geared to prepare runners for the country music marathon...but we will meet one last time at 6 p.m. for an easy 3 mile run.

Saturday, April 25 - Post-Race Party

Each year East Nasty hosts two celebrations: a Christmas Party, and a post- country music marathon party.  Even if you don't run the race this Saturday, plan on joining in the celebration!   Here are the details:

Where: The Pavillion East - 1006 Fatherland Street (about a block from where we meet on Wednesdays...)

When: 6 - 10 p.m. on Saturday night

What: Edley's BBQ, Yazoo beer, and a great time with your fellow East Nasties!

Who: Anyone.

Wednesday, April 29 - Route #5 and East Nasty night at the Basement East

There is a new live music venue in East Nashville.  It’s called the Basement East or more affectionately “ the Beast “.  The Beast will be opening it’s doors in late April and will have their first “ new faces “ night on Wednesday April, 29th.   Mike Grimes the owner of Grimey’s records and the original basement off of 8th avenue in Nashville is allowing East Nasty to take over the that opening night.  The event will start at 8:00 and there will be drink specials for all East Nasties. Here is the cool part: Grimey wants all the musical artist that perform that night to be East Nasties or at least have some East Nasty roots. He is ideally looking for 8 artist or groups to perform a 15 – 20 minute set. Grimey will handle all the logistics and who is performing when.

The night will also be hosted by our very own Drew Jones who is no stranger to a microphone.

Whether you are a solo artist, in a band, brand new to the music scene or been around for a while – we need and would love to see you on stage performing.  It should be a great night to check out some of our nasties on stage showing off their musical talent.

Please spread the word and let’s fill the first new faces night on the east side with all East Nasties.

If you would like to perform that night, please email Mike Grimes directly at:
