Nashville Scene: Pumpkin Ale Patch Critics’ Pick

Critics Pick Pumpkin Ale Patch

Jared and Kristyn Corder — the happy couple behind the recurring East Nashville Underground festivals as well as several other local-rock-centric events — are brave. They must be, as they’re opening up their home this weekend to beer-swilling horror and rock ’n’ roll fans for their second annual autumnal Pumpkin Ale Patch Fall Party. The soiree commences with a beer tasting at 7 p.m., when attendees are invited to “pick a small pumpkin” that “corresponds with a seasonal beer of your choice.” Not sure exactly what that means, but it sounds like a hoot. After that it’s rock ’n’ roll time, when dreamy psychedelic garage-pop outfit Churchyard, Brit-poppy Oklahoma transplants Twiggs, and blues-riffing guitarman Justin Kalk and his Justin Kalk Orchestra will offer the jams. Then it’s a screening of the seasonally obligatory classic, Halloween. Costumes are of course encouraged, and the event is 21-and-up. Good luck finding a more adorable hang tonight.
