This week almost wrote itself! There is something great every night as well as a couple really cool benefits this week.
5/6/13 Striking Matches 3rd and Lindsley
I would have to say Striking Matches is my newest favourite local band. Great songs and even more amazing guitar playing. Read about them and check out their video on a previous blog or just take my word for it and go. Presented at the new “Backstage” venue – hmm that’s what we called the venue at Cafe Coco.
5/7/13 A Night of Honoring the songs of Tim Johnson Ryman Auditorium
This is a unique and amazingly kind night put on by the Nashville music community. Nashville songwriters and some well-known artists will be performing the songs of this great songwriter who passed away from cancer last year. His friends and community want to make sure his songs are not forgotten and hope someone who is looking for songs for their next release will hear something they will record, in turn helping out his family for years to come. It’s a free event but tickets are required by calling (615) 889-3060
She was recently featured as local artist of the week on Lightning 100 and was also part of Music City Mayhem. This will be an enjoyable evening no doubt!
Another night from a giving Nashville music community. This one is to benefit the tragedy in Boston. The incredible Mike Ferris along with the equally remarkable Long Players will cover the music of the 70’s – 80’s top 40 hitmakers, “Boston”.
5/10/13 Gabe Dixon 3rd and Lindsley
Great songs, great vocals, great keys, great venue. Great way to spend a Friday night.
5/11/13 East Side Hootenanny East Park
I have not heard of the bands but they had to cancel the event last week because of rain, so let’s get out and support this inaugural event.
The Nashville Jazz Workshop presents one of the greatest recordings of all times in the lobby of The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. It’ll be a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon especially if it rains again!
