For the past six years, the collective known as Nashville's Dead has thrown the pre-SXSW party of the year with their annual Freakin' Weekend event. The festival boasts some of the biggest names in garage rock (The Black Lips, Jacuzzi Boys and Ty Segall have all played), and also allows some of Nashville's best local bands to strut their stuff.

The three day, multi-venue festival is a perfect opportunity for Memphians to get acquainted with the burgeoning music scene in Nashville, and with pop-up shops, food trucks and after parties, there's a lot to take in. Nashville's Dead recently announced the initial lineup, with a second slew of bands presumably coming soon. Check out the insane video of Jeff The Brotherhood playing Freakin Weekend IV (and the trippy Black Lips footage) to get acquainted with the freak show, then make plans for a road trip to the capital city March 12-14. Oh yeah, if you act fast the three day pass is only $40.00. As always, the festival is dedicated to Nashville's Dead founder Ben Todd, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 24.
