Live Music Week of August 12 through August 18 2013

Standard

8/12/13     The Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley Need I tell you again…go! 

8/13/13     Doyle and Debbie     Zanies I saw this show when it was at The Station Inn and loved it.  They’ve now spent some time in Chicago and have come back to Nashville’s comedy central.  Go and be prepared to have a laugh! 

8/14/13     Christ West and the Junkyard Horns     fooBar I just saw Chris playing on the streets of the Tomato Art Fest this past weekend, a couple of weeks ago I’m pretty sure I saw him playing with Mike Ferris at Nashville Dancin.  He plays with everyone so this will be a great treat to see him playing in a small club with his own band.  He’s monster and plays with only the best! 

8/15/13     Erin McCarley, The Mowgli’s, Matt Nathanson     Live On The Green “I’ve been in love with love and the idea of”  I love this song and it’s the Mowgli’s and Erin McCarley is also wonderfully cool! I love her song “Elevator”.  Neither of these are even the headliner so what does that tell ya?

8/16/13 East Nashville Underground     The East Room Be the hippest of the hipsters and see some great live music. ‘ 

8/17/13     The Long Player’s     Mercy Lounge Always high on my list of must see’s and they are covering Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers” This show often sells out so get your tickets early. 

8/18/13     The Cult     Marathon Music Works I was a little surprised to see that they were playing at this venue, although it’s one of my favourite new venues in Nashville.  I remember seeing them in the 80’s opening for Aerosmith and enjoyed every minute.  They will be playing “Electric” in it’s entirety according to the press release

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 April 15 through 21, 2013

Standard

I went out Saturday night to hear a friend’s husband (who happens to be one of the best bluegrass bass players in town) play with 18 South.  This band has now become my new favourite.  This weekend was made even more special with the guest appearances of Sam Bush and John Oates!  Before I headed to The Station Inn I hit Music City Mayhem at the new East-Centric Pavilion, not only was the music great and it was the place to be Saturday afternoon but I’m super excited about what music and festivals will be coming to the East-Centric Pavilion.  I may never need to leave East Nashville again.  

4/15/13     Time Jumpers       3rd and Lindsley

I’d like to say “Tipper Whore” at Mercy Lounge because the name is so funny but I know nothing about them.  The Time Jumpers as I’ve mentioned before are a sure bet! 

4/16/13    Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Roseanne Cash, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson and more    Bridgestone Arena

An all-star line up of the “real deal” country music folk to benefit The Country Music Hall of Fame, a place I spent much of my time volunteering when I first moved to Nashville. If you’ve never been there do check it out.  It looks like a pip squeak next to the new convention center but it’s a wonderful place both architecturally and historically.  

4/17/13     AER w/ The Lonely Biscuits      Exit/In

I don’t know a whole lot about this band but I first heard them featured as a local band on Lightning 100 and loved their song.  I have no idea who AER is but I’m sure if they are matched up with these guys it will be a good night.  If you don’t want to stand up and dance get there early to get a seat up top.  

4/18/13    Leon Russell with Chuck Foster and Dave Pahanish     3rd and Lindsley

If Russell’s “Delta Lady”, “Superstar” or “A Song For You” aren’t enough then go to hear hit songwriter Pahanish  or former band member for the incredible Bonnie Bramlett, Foster. 

4/19/13     Griffin House     Exit/In 

Beautiful melodies, sweet lyrics and a  great voice.  

4/20/13     East Nashville Honey Bee Festival      East-Centric Pavilion

I have no idea who is playing but the venue is great and if it’s a nice day it’s going to be the place to be between 10 am and 4pm!  Afterwards head back across the river to see Rock of Ages at TPAC . If it’s as much fun as the movie you’ve nothing to lose!  

4/21/13    Striking Matches     Bluebird Cafe

I fell in love with this duo at Tin Pan South.  Check them out in this intimate setting while you have a chance.  They will be selling out the Ryman in no time.
