2/4 Neutral Milk Hotel

Neutral Milk Hotel has its origins in the small town of Ruston, LA. Jeff Mangum has always been Neutral Milk Hotel's central figure, and he's used that moniker for everything from his own solo excursions to marching band-like musical happenings. The four principal members of NMH lived together in Athens, GA, though you could hardly call it domesticated.

2/5 Southern Smash

The Southern Smash College Tour is stopping at Vanderbilt! It is a simple concept: Scale + Sledgehammer = Southern SMASH! Whether it is the number on the scale, calories, grades, miles, speed or anything in between…we allow so many exterior things to weigh us down. Sadly, most American women (and men) feel trapped by the number on the scale. Join Southern Smash in breaking those bonds in an afternoon of empowering activities including a BeYOUtiful Photo Booth, Let it Go balloons, Dare to Love Yourself cards, and SCALE SMASHING from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on the Alumni Lawn SmashTALK 5:30-7:00 p.m. - An open discussion with leading body image and eating disorder experts.

2/6 Bacon & Bourbon Festival

Join the Nashville Scene for bacon, bourbon and bluegrass. Bacon dishes from local restaurants will be piled high for sampling at The Loveless Barn. Be a part of what's sure to be Nashville's favorite new foodie event. This is a 21-and-up event.

2/7 Kings of Leon

The 2014 MECHANICAL BULL TOUR is in support of Kings of Leon’s 6th album, Mechanical Bull, which was released on September 24 on RCA Records and debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.

2/7 Val Kilmer's Citizen Twain

In Citizen Twain, Val Kilmer presents the legend as we've never encountered him, with all his glorious contradictions intact, all his strengths and weaknesses in play. Poised on the shadowy border of life and death and in a realm outside of time, Twain is part stand-up comic and part philosopher, an immortal intelligence in a mortal body, both wildly hilarious and deeply somber.

2/7-2/8 Ravel & Saint-Saëns

Ravel’s Piano Concerto will transform the Schermerhorn into a lively Parisian cabaret, with dizzying flights of fancy and some of the loveliest music of the composer’s career. After that, the colossal sound of our Martin Foundation Concert Organ will fill the concert hall in Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony, with notes so powerful that you’ll literally feel your seat shaking!
