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!

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.

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!
