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.
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.
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.
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.
