This will be short and sweet, I was out enjoying Pat McLaughlin last night at 3rd and Lindsley and didn’t get much time to work on the blog but it was worth every minute. See him there again Tuesday!
3/18/13 New Monday featuring Val Storey, Carl Jackson & Larry Cordle The Station Inn
See my previous blog for what I had to say about this night.
3/19/13 Pat McLaughlin, Jack Pearson, Etta Brittt, Jonell Mosser, Sheila Lawrence, Vicki Carrico, Tiffany Johnson… 3rd and Lindsley
As I mentioned Pat is the bomb and all of the ladies on this ticket blow my mind. I believe it’s also a fundraiser so go.
3/20/13 Nicki Bluhm & The Gamblers The High Watt or Liz Longley CD Release 3rd and Lindsley
Another tough choice on a Wednesday. Watch this video of Nicki and her band covering a Hall & Oates song then look at the list of accomplishments Liz has achieved and pick one.
3/22/13 Bill Lloyd in the Round Bluebird Cafe
Bill Lloyd is one half of Foster and Lloyd. But he’s all of that and more, should be a good round but please be quiet ;0
3/22/13 Vinyl Radio Puckett’s Grocery
Great musicians, seventies musc – what’s not to love.
3/23/13 Sherrie Austin, Will Rambeaux Puckett’s Grocery
Great songwriters, good singers. Enjoy!
3/24/13 Les Miserables Troutt Theatre
OMG, if you have not seen this musical in a live theatrical setting then check this one out. It’s closing night so that’s always my favourite night because the cast knows this is the last time for them to be together in such an intense, collaborative way. It is usually emotional and all the more exciting.
I’m going to a Wordcamp to learn about wordpress tomorrow so I can get better at telling you what to go see in live music in Nashville and it’s one of the biggest days for live music and I will miss it all!
4/21/12 Hollywood to Dollywood Nashville Film Festival Green Hills Cinema
Okay it’s not live but there will be music by Dolly and rumors that she might be there, so will I!
4/21/12 Mindy Smith among others Earth Day Festival Centennial Park
I’ve been almost every year and it’s fun and there’s usually someone for everyone but Mindy’s on the top of my list. Heck she first came on the scene covering a Dolly song…is there a theme here.
4/20/12 – 4/21/12 Fitz and the Tantrums, Caitlin Rose, Wick-It Rites of Spring Vanderbilt University
fun, fun, fun – why does everything have to happen on the same weekend in Nashville, every year it’s a toss up between this, earth day and Film Fest and now Word Camp – man I wish I could clone myself!
4/21/12 Space Capone with Alyssa Bonagura Mercy Lounge
One of the happiest shows I went to in 2011 was Space Capone, this is how music should make you feel.
5/7/12 Esperanza Spalding Schermerhorn
I first became aware of Esperanza during the year Justin Beiber lost best new artist to her, I became a fan of hers and then also found some respect for him (see my other blog), not his fans, but a little for him – plus he’s a Canuck so…
I heard today about a great show for a great cause at the mercy lounge tonight at 8pm Its the music of Les Miserables to benefit Tennessee Teens Rock n Roll camp. I’m sad to miss Lisa Carver but know I’ll have another chance! C u there.
