What to do on a thursday night

Thursdays are the new fridays y'all. Do you need something to do to kick start the weekend a night early, or do you just like music? Tonight at my favorite venue in Knoxville, the Pilot Light, a couple of really great bands are playing. Two are represented by a Knoxville based record label named Arcade Sound Ltd.

Arcade Sound was started by a local guy named Ryan Foltz. Following his dream he started his own label. There is a really good article by metropulse located here.

The Bands that are playing tonight are:

1) Toro y Moi
I saw Toro y Moi at the Pilot Light last semester, and he was awesome. It was a really cool show.

2) Millionyoung
Millionyoung is represented by Arcade Sound Ltd. and is killing it on the Chillwave scene. His stuff is really catchy, dreamy, summer pop music.

3) COOLRUNNINGS
If you haven't heard of COOLRUNNINGS you should sincerely check them out. I would recommend the song Slumberland and San Dimas Oasis. They truly are a Knoxville band. You may recognize Brandon Biondo from his work with The Royal Bangs, or keyboardist Elliott White from the band YUNG LIFE. They have formed together to make some music. The band also features one of my favorite Knoxvillians: Dancing Dan. He leads the audience in dancing. So you know it will be fun. They are also represented by Arcade Sound Ltd.

The Show is tonight at the best venue in Knoxville, The Pilot Light, at 10p.m. for $10, and y'all it is going to be worth your money.
