For the live music fans that won’t be attending some variation of Green Apple Music Festival this upcoming weekend, there’s always the Rites of Spring music festival down in Nashville, TN, undoubtedly a sure-fire alternative.

Look at their schedule this Friday — The Whigs, Keller Williams, Drive-By Truckers, then Wolfmother. Those four sets alone should be enough to bring any music fan out of the woodwork. Plus, Marc just caught The Whigs while they passed through Chicago and he was definitely pleased with the performance (for the most part).

If anyone ends up going to this, feel free to send a little review our way.
