Live Music Week of July 29 through August 3, 2013

Standard

Tguitar girl mexicoOnce again I took a few weeks hiatus. I could give you many excuses but as they say, “you can’t change your past” so onward and upward! 

7/29/13     The Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

Rumour has it, and by rumour I mean The Nashville Scene, Vince Gill will be in town and playing with The Time Jumpers tonight.  

7/30/13     Will Rambeaux, Sherrie Austin & Friends     The Bluebird Cafe

I used to cover Sherri Austin’s song “Lucky in Love” “back in the day” and I was always a fan of her voice. Will Rambeaux has had a bunch of cuts and I always enjoy hearing the original songwriter in a great intimate setting. 

7/31/13     John and Jacob, Kansas Bible Company   Music City Roots

I really love John and Jacob’s single that has been played relentlessly on Lightning 100 and they are adorable. It’s absolutely infectious!  Word on the street is that Kansas Bible Company is the band to see these days and I just want to see them fit them all the stage and figure out what they all are doing up there. 

8/1/13     Korby Lanker     The Basement

I have mentioned Korby in previous posts and he is as cute as a button with fun and singable pop songs.  (What’s up with me and cute “boys” these days…)

8/2/13     The Hags-Silverman Ordeal Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration     The Family Wash

I was sent an invitation via Facebook that cordially invited me to this event so I feel very special.  I am a fan of East Nashville’s own “Hags” bass playing so this should be a fun night, even though I’m not a fan of the Grateful Dead. Sorry anyone reading this who thinks that’s not a kosher thing to say! 

8/2/13     Benefit for Luella and the Sun, Justin Townes EarleMike Farris, Webb Wilder     Mercy Lounge

I just love how people in this town pull together to help each other. It makes my heart feel good and the bonus is the music will be good. 

8/3/13     Old Crow Medicine Show with Buddy Miller     The Woods at Fontanel

I will be there kicking up dust with the rest of the Hippies and Hipsters but I’m really excited to see the great Buddy Miller once again!

 8/4/13     Brooke Waggoner     3rd and Lindsley

Love her, go see her!

6/24/13     Larry Cordle and Friends     The Station Inn

I ended up at the Station Inn last Monday night for New Mondays with Val Storey.  It was one of the most brilliant nights of music I have been to at the Station Inn and I never come away disappointed at this venue.  The following Mondays are not billed the same but I imagine they will be just as wonderful.

6/25/13     Drivin n Cryin     Belcourt Theatre

I read about this documentary about the band and live concert in the Nashville Scene and think it’s definitely the “best bet” for a Tuesday night no doubt!

6/26/13     Wooten Brothers     3rd and Lindsley

This is always a fun time with a variety of guests showing up as well as a great dance floor available to all who wish to dance in the fabulous new layout of 3rd and Lindsley.  

6/27/13     Josh Ritter with Milk Carton Kids   Cannery Ballroom

I just love the name of Josh’s opening act but I love their music even more.  

6/28/13     The Malemen     Frist Fridays

This is a summer event that’s always a good time.  The theme is cars so the first week features Motown music, put your dancing shoes on! 

6/29/13     Ruby Amanfu & Brooke Waggoner     Musicians Corner Centennial Park

Two wonderful singers with good songs.  I love the park atmosphere even if the sound isn’t always the best and there’s always a new musical find at this season weekly event. 

6/30/13     Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Bob Weir, Wilco     Riverfront Park

I don’t like Bob Dylan, yes I said it, but it’s kind of a no brainer that if you have the opportunity to see and hear him locally you’d better take it.  

6/30/13     Duffy Jackson’s Big BandThe Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

I once took a scat class from this man and it was amazing.  This is a benefit for an incredible drummer who has played with many of the giants of jazz.

6/17/13     Gordon Lightfoot     Schermerhorn

It’s been a while since I’ve put in a plug for a Canadian, so here it is, and what a Canadian he is! 

6/18/13     Lightning 100’s Beer, Bands, Bingo     Tin Roof Nashville

Play bingo with the folks at my favourite radio station in Nashville.  You will also be playing band roulette because I have no idea who will be playing but Lightning 100 shouldn’t let us down.  

6/19/13     Shel    Two Old Hippies

I adore these women and their cool hats and even cooler attitudes.  Excellent musicianship that’s unique and fun.  Bonus…it’s FREE! Don’t worry, I also think you should go to Music City Roots and hear Marshall Chapman if you didn’t catch her last week. 

6/20/13     Vince Gill     Ryman Auditorium

Known as the nicest guy in Nashville but also one of the best guitar players too. I can’t imagine what a great show this would be at the Ryman with his history in Nashville and his plethora of hit songs. 

6/21/13     Jen FosterPatrice Pike     The Listening Room

Yes I work for her, but  I am also a fan and the last time I saw Patrice Pike play with her at 12th and Porter I was blown away, so come on down and say hello, I will definitely be there! 

6/22/13     Nashville Tour de Fat      Centennial Park

This looks like a whole lot of fun and lasts all afternoon along with Musicians Corner then head back over the river and come salsa dancing with Revolfusion and support Nashville’s first ESL truck at East-Centric Pavilion  Meet The Truck Party. 

6/23/13     Tennessee Blues Society Jam     Carol Ann’s

Someone from the Blues Society recently followed this blog and a friend told me this is a good time so head on over to this weekly Sunday event.

Live Music Week of June 10 through June 16 2013

Standard

This last week was filled with a whole bunch of great music.  I went to Music City Roots on Wednesday to see Jacob Jones and discovered Black Jake and The Carnies.  Saturday afternoon I spent the afternoon at Centennial Park and Musicians Corner excited to finally catch Striking Matches, who have been tearing up Nashville stages recently, and was treated to a short performance by my new favourite, bow tie wearing, pop songwriter, Korby Lenker. Saturday night a last minute invitation got me out the The Family Wash in East Nashville to finally see Kevin Gordon, I am now a believer! Sunday night had me singing along to every Dawes song at The Ryman and witnessing one of the best open acts and audiences I have ever seen with Shovels and Rope

Even with Bonaroo going on this upcoming week there is still a whole lot of great music to catch right here in Nashville and a great way to experience Bonaroo if you can’t go for the whole week.

6/10/13     The Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

6/10/13     8 off 8th with Kristen Cothron and more     Mercy Lounge

6/10/13     Val Storey, Carl Jackson & Larry Cordle     Station Inn

6/10/13     Mike Henderson Band     Bluebird Cafe

Monday is usually  a good night in Nashville if you are in the mood to head out to hear some music.  Usually I would just choose one but the above shows are pretty much always happening weekly, so pick your flavour tonight!  

6/11/13     Jason Isbell     Grimey’s New & Preloved Music

Grimey’s is above The Basement and often has a short set with a variety of different artists, local and passing through.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) Marhshall Chapman will be at Grimey’s Too which is right next door.  Shows usually start at 6pm.  

6/12/13     Gary Talley and The Road Home     Music City Roots

I had so much fun at the Loveless Barn last week as I knew I would.  This week I want to give a shout out to my former guitar teacher and member of  The Box Tops. 

6/13/13    Donna The Buffalo, Tommy Malone, 18 South, The Lonely Biscuits      Nashville Dancin    Riverfront Park

This is the first night for Nashville Dancin, a long awaited replacement to Dancing In The District.  I can’t wait to check it out.  This is a great lineup, you might remember my previous experience seeing 18 South for the first time.  If not read about it here: 

6/14/13     Symphony Under The Stars     Centennial Park

There are only a few opportunities to get to see the Nashville Symphony play outside and for free.  With all the hooplah about the selling of the Schermerhorn it might be the best way to spend your Friday night before the opportunity goes way!

6/15/13     Booker T Jones     Frankin Theatre

Booker T and the M.G.’s, Green Onions, really do I have to spell it out for you! Just go.  

6/16/13    Kacey Musgraves, Sam Bush & DelMcCoury, Tom Petty, Drew Holcomb, John Oates  Bonaroo Day Trip

I’m not sure why they have created a shuttle this year but for the faint of heart like me, a whole week at Bonaroo sounds like a good idea but in reality it’s not happening.  If I had to pick one day to go to Bonaroo this  year Sunday would be the day.
