Win Tickets: Vintage Trouble, Futurebirds in Nashville this Friday


If you’re headed to Nashville to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the UGA-Vandy game this weekend, your time in Music City just potentially got a whole lot cooler.

This Friday, Oct. 18, Nashville’s Marathon Village will host the Engine Block Party, an evening-long shindig featuring food, crafts, dance and of course music: hotshot L.A. blues-rockers Vintage Trouble will perform, as will former Athens country-rockers Futurebirds and Tennessee collective Kansas Bible Company.

The whole thing kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Buy ’em here, and enter promo code “GODAWGS” for a deal.
