Labor Day Laborless Fest: The Lineup

The Dan Harry Trio (1-3 p.m.)

This trio consists of Daniel Harry and friends. Daniel Harry is the singer and guitarist for modern Southern band Copper Into Steel. He demonstrates the epitome of an invigorating and upbeat performance style that always turns first-time listeners into fans.

Creature Comfort (4-5 p.m.)

Creature Comfort got its humble beginnings in the form of Paper Not Plastic, an indie pop band that gained somewhat of a cult following in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. After a line up change and subsequent shift in direction, Paper Not Plastic gave birth to Creature Comfort in late 2011. Upon its inception, Creature Comfort began playing at several house shows and venues throughout Nashville and the surrounding cities. In the summer of 2012, the band began working on their full-length debut, "Fox Tales." The eleven song album was recorded over an eight month span in lead guitarist Nick Rose's personal studio and was mastered by Kyle Manner at Station West in Nashville. On May 18th, 2013, "Fox Tales" was finally released to several eager fans at the Little Shop of Records in Murfreesboro. The album is now available for download on iTunes and Bandcamp.

Josephine and the Wildfront (5:30-6:30 p.m.)

Josephine and the Wildfront is a three-piece alt synth band from the Nashville area, Tennessee. Their inspirations include a wide range of dream pop and other alternative new-gaze rock bands.
Beginning as a solo project consisting of Josephine Moore and an acoustic guitar, many of the songs, that would later be featured on their 2013 “Swallowed By The Ocean” EP, were written many years prior as a collection of folk songs Josephine would perform alone in coffee shops and other small venues.
Krista Glover, a keys player, and Preston Vaughn, a drummer, were members of a local pop-punk-esque band with other members, which would later be called Holy Coast with the addition of Moore as vocalist and rhythm guitar.
Moore was given the opportunity to rerecord her old songs at a much higher production quality in the studio of Rob Webb, who suggested she find a backing band. She then enlisted the aid of her girlfriend, Glover, and friend Vaughn to begin a new project with her, and create a new style of performance and music altogether. Already having established a comfort in playing together during the year they were in Holy Coast (in which two EPs were released), the new band naturally blended together. 
Thus, Josephine and the Wildfront was born.

The Bed Monsters (7-9 p.m.)

The Bed Monsters are James Wood on guitar/vocals, Eric Schneeberger on drums/vocals, Trey Caplenor on bass/vocals. The Bed Monsters began about 3 years ago. During that time, they have worked hard to create a new sound experience. The influences of all three members combine to create something they hope is unique.
