Saturday afternoon, Nashville music lovers gathered once again at Centennial Park to meet up with friends and listen to great live music in a relaxed outdoor setting.

Though the Vanderbilt game and the 2011 dog day festival made parking and weaving into the park a bit of an added challenge, Nashvillians still showed up to see Pat McLaughlin, The Danberrys, Jon Black, SPELLS, Hannah Miller, Christopher Williams and Audrey Spillman.

Brite indie rocker SPELLS made his debut live performance with a full band, and though he played to the first small group of fans trickling in, he brought his electronic sound with full force, taking the time to ease into solos and long musical interludes.

SPELLS played heavily from his new EP, Escapist, giving the audience a taste of the work he’s been doing over the past year.

As people milled around with their dogs, chatting with friends and enjoying the outdoor venue, Audrey Spillman took the side stage and introduced Nashville to her sweet pop sound in a more acoustic set. Then the DanBerrys came out of left field and wowed the audience with their tight harmonies and organic, rootsy Americana feel.

Though Brite couldn’t stay for the whole day of music, we love what we heard, and we were proud to see SPELLS kick off the afternoon in the first of many performances. You can also catch him live this week at Next Big Nashville’s Soundland.
