So much righteous stuff this week, we had to present it to you in a harvested form, 92% BTR approved. The USDA comes a-callin’ when we slap our stamp on produce.
Here are a list of things happening in Nashville this week that we will be at:
The Phantom Farmer//Chrome Pony//Calico Cat
—-The Phantom Farmer is Joel Dahl’s (By Lightening) solo work and it’s first record release show. This guy has recorded many of the find projects that you (or will) enjoy around town, and a few you won’t. Prolific in his work ethic, unassuming in his nature, go hear this man spit the truth. He’s the doctor around these parts. Chrome Pony supports and you know we pop for that.
Joey Molinaro//Chris Murray
1119 N 2nd St//9PM (FOR REAL)
—-Take yourself all the way there with this one. Joey Molinaro is thrash, solo violinist and Chris Murray is a thrash, solo saxer that helms the Square People project. Free Jazz, Free Thoughts, Free Show (Save buying/donate to Joey the Tour). C’mon then.
Hot Chicken Night at the VFW followed by music:
Bombino//William Tyler//Cherry Blossoms
VFW Post 1970//$10 //8pm
<click!> to listen
—-Personally, I’m stoked on this one more than most things I’m usually stoked on. Bombino is a Tuareg guitarist from Niger, Africa who’s been exiled, had band members executed, all to be “welcomed back” by the nation(s) his protest songs are about. Serious business here, folks. This one is not to be missed, with two killer opening local acts and a fully engaged evening planned out.
Lushlife (Philly)//Cities Aviv (Memphis)//Jota Ese
Mercy Lounge-High Watt//$10//9pm
—-Who is Jota Ese? You’ve heard his two/too dope mix tapes, you’ve pondered his premises, now see he revealed. Debut live show?Lounted Hip-Hop? Enigma be gone? See you idiots there.
This day is insane and you probably already have plans. Oh Dang Lo Mein is playing at Local Taco and Fly Golden Eagle is playing at the End. That’s racist, know what I’m talmbout?
Call me Snap. Out.
