Live Music Week of May 20 through May 26 2013

Standard

5/27/13     The Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

Check out any number of my previous posts for why I think this is the best thing going for a Monday night or just believe me and go.  You might actually see me there! 

5/28/13     Joshua O’dine     The Basement’s New Faces Nite

I have a resentment toward this guy because he held me up one New Year’s Eve when I was running sound at Cafe Coco. However, I remember him as being uber-talented so I will let it go and suggest you check him and a number of other great up and coming artists out at this weekly event.  This is a favourite Nashville venue that I need to add to my list. 

5/29/13   James Otto, Striking Matches     3rd and Lindsley

Although Steve Martin, Edie Brickell & Steep Canyon Rangers at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center was my first pick, I couldn’t get tickets, atleast without missing a car payment!  I will however settle for my new favourite band who you just aren’t going to stop hearing me talk about for a while, sorry.  James Otto is no slacker himself either.  

5/30/13     Kristen Cothron      Springwater Supper Club

Kristen is another singer, songwriter, artist who has been on my radar for a number of years.  Her soulful and sultry performance can be seen on a regular basis these days at The Springwater.  The Springwater Supper Club, as they call it, is one of the oldest musical establishments in Nashville but don’t be fooled if you haven’t been there before, it’s a dive bar with a stage. Still a fun hang for a Thursday night. 

5/31/13     12 Against Nature: A Steely Dan Experience     3rd and Lindsley

I haven’t seen this band but it’s been recommened to me by a friend, Roy Agee has been known to play trombone with them and it’s one of my favourite venues in town and, oh yea…they play Steely Dan! 

6/1/13        Nashville in Harmony     TPAC

I have always thought I should join a chorus in Nashville and perhaps one day I will. I think this would be my first pick.  As their website says, they “use music to build community and create social change”. This will be the last show of the season after they take their message to the streets from Knoxville to Nashville. 

6/2/13     Paul Kelly with Striking Matches     3rd and Lindsley

I just can’t get enough of this duo and it’s Lightning 100‘s “Nashville Sunday Night” Be aware though, you have to go to the venue to hear Striking Matches.  Paul Kelly will be the only one featured on the radio show, pity.

Live Music Week of May 20 through May 26 2013

Standard

5/20/13     Sheryl Crow & The Fisk Jubilee Singers Music City Center

Day two of  the grand opening of Nashville’s new Convention Center downtown . I checked the place out yesterday and it is BIG.  I think day one was a great success and I loved the use of all the great live music Nashville has to offer throughout the whole opening.  From small duos in the hallways to the Symphony playing the Grand Ballroom. I got catch a little bit of Music City Blues and the Soul Choir as well as a hear Phil Vassar sing the JoDee Messina song he penned “Bye Bye”

5/21/13     Guitar Man tribute to Jerry Reed     3rd and Lindsley

I remember Jerry Reed as a little girl and how funny he was but as a grown up I’ve discovered he was one heck of a guitar player too.  I became friends with his daughter a few years ago and Iknow how proud she was of her dad.  

5/22/13     Striking Matches    Music City Roots at The Loveless Cafe

If  you read this blog on a regular basis (Mom, Melissa, Keith maybe) you know this is my new favourite band and  Music City Roots is pretty much always my go to for a Wednesday night.   

5/23-25/13     Cirque Musica     Schermerhorn Symphony Center

I am not exactly sure what this will be but I have tickets for Saturday night.  I know it has something to do with Cirque De Soleil and it involves the Nashville Symphony so I am pretty sure it will be awesome.

5/24/13     Etta Britt      3rd and Lindsley

Etta is getting some well deserved recognition these days.  She’s a powerhouse of a vocalist who you have probably heard many times as a background singer.  Friday at 3rd and Lindsley is a great chance to see & hear her in the forefront.  

5/25/13     Street Corner Symphony and Alanna Royal      Musicians Corner (Centennial Park)

I fell head over heels with Street Corner Symphony and acappella music watching the Sing Off with Ben Folds (who I also learned to really appreciate watching that show).  I also think East Nashville’s own Alanna Royal is the bomb and I haven’t had a chance to catch her live yet. Take a chair or blanket and prepare to have a very enjoyable afternoon. 

5/23-26/13    Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Kevin Welch    Jamminathippiejacks.com

Okay this is a weekend long event and it’s not exactly in Nashville but the lineup is awesome and it’s the best time of year to go camping in this part of the world.  I hope Darrell Scott is playing on Sunday, amazing songwriter, instrumentalist…wow!

Live Music Week of May 13 through May 19 2013

Standard

5/13/13     Lyle Lovett     Schermerhorn Symphony Center

I have loved Lyle Lovett’s music forever and I saw him last year with John Hiatt.  Seeing him live and experiencing his infectious personality only made me even more excited about a show with him and his acoustic band.  

5/14/13     The Breeders     Cannery Ballroom

I had never heard of this band before but they were highly recommended by a good friend whose musical taste I trust.  Not my most favourite venue but a good place for a Tuesday night. 

5/15/13     Brian Ashley Jones     Music City Roots at The Loveless Cafe

I was introduced to the music of  Brian by a former roommate when we had a party in our backyard.  This long time road warrior is getting some well deserved recognition by the Nashville community.  The rest of the lineup will most likely be great too especially since Jim Lauderdale pretty much always opens up the show.   

5/16/13     Jeffrey Steele and Friends     3rd and Lindsley

This is a benefit for the Brentwood YMCA.  It’d be great if you would support it because they often hire one of my clients, Mr. Bond, The Science Guy!  It’s always a party when Jeffrey Steele is in the house but the list of friends performing will make this one heck of a night. Charlie Crow, Phil Barton, Travis Howard, Kurtis John, The Shuggah Pies, Jimmy Stewart and more…

5/17/13     Brandi Carlile with the Nashville Symphony     Schermerhorn Symphony Center

If you have not heard this incredible vocalist you are in for a HUGE treat.  I can only imagine how amazing she will sound backed by the incredible musicians that make up the Nashville Symphony.  

5/18/13     The Avett Brothers     Bridgestone Arena

I first saw this band at an Americana festival at Montgomery Bell Park.  I was talking with a friend and they hit the stage and we stopped, stared and were hooked.  I called them bluegrass punk and since then I have seen them many times including standing on a fence behind Grimey’s during Record Store Day just to catch a glimpse. This will be my first large arena experience with the Avetts and although I’m not a fan of this size of a show I’m pretty psyched. 

5/19/13     Phil Vassar and Ten Out of Tenn     Music City Center

Sunday and Monday will be the grand opening of the gigantic Convention Center in downtown Nashville.  They have two nights of music slated to introduce Nashville to the Center at its grand opening.  Should be an incredible extravaganza.
