    The Baseball Project and Hollis Brown at Zanzabar

    "That's the true harbinger of spring," legendary baseball impresario Bill Veeck once opined, "not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of a bat on the ball." This year there's another welcome sign that spring is on the way, that baseball is about to resume its rightful place on the national stage, and that all will once again be right with the world: the new album from The Baseball Project, 3rd, hits the streets a week before the opening day of the 2014 season. Born and bred in New York City, Hollis Brown embarked on a pilgrimage to Nashville to capture their authentic sound. They shacked up for two weeks in the backyard cabin/studio of producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother), and found themselves. They recorded everything live, straight to analog tape. The result was a warm, vintage sound that displays the band's explosive live energy. Their new EP,Nothing & The Famous No One, takes the listener back to that cabin to experience the raw vibe, smell the smoke, and feel alive.

    Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm (event ends at 11:59 pm)
