7/16/12  Keep On’ Movin Dance Party  The 5 Spot

This has been going on for a few years and this just might be the week I find out what it’s all about.  The posters are great and it looks like my kinda fun, just a little late for a monday night but perhaps this week…

7/17/12      Death Cab For Cutie     Marathon Music Works  

I have loved these guys since I taught  “I Will Follow You into the Dark” to a guitar student.  I’m also excited about Nashville’s newest music venue.  Soul Meets Body, I Will Posses Your Heart… yes this will be a great show!

7/18/12     Jackson Browne with Sara Watkins  Ryman Auditorium 

What an amazing pairing! This will be a magical night in the historic and beautiful Ryman hall. If you don’t know Jackson Browne you haven’t been alive long enough. Sara is the fiddler from Nickel Creek who has grown into a wonderful songwriter and solo performer with a very sweet voice.

7/19/12      Emily West    3rd and Lindsley

Great singer, great songwriter, great venue – eat beforehand.

7/20/12      Jonell Mosser  3rd and Lindsley

Powerhouse singer with great songs and great band.  See above…

7/21/12      The Joe Savage Experience    3rd and Lindsley

An ex-boyfriend played keys for this guys years ago, I never saw him but I believe it would be an “experience.”  If you don’t want to risk it check out Shawn Mullins at 3rd and Lindsley.
