Grand Ole Opry featuring Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins, John Cowan, John McFee & Friends, Parker Millsap, Henry Cho, Jeannie Seely and Bill Anderson.

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins, John Cowan, John McFee & Friends, Parker Millsap, Henry Cho, Jeannie Seely and Bill Anderson.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show. Artists are posted to the Opry website as soon as appearances are confirmed (artists and schedule subject to change). Plan to check back often, as most times artists' appearances are not confirmed until one to two weeks prior to the show date.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway. While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

Cibo Matto featuring Nels Cline

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

A Japanese-born duo relocated to New York and christened with an Italian band name, Cibo Matto's music mirrored the melting-pot aesthetics of their origins, resulting in a heady brew of funk samples, hip-hop rhythms, tape loops, and fractured pop melodies all topped off by surreal narratives sung in a combination of French and broken English. Cibo Matto comprised vocalist Miho Hatori and keyboardist/sampler Yuka Honda, a pair of expatriate Japanese women who arrived in the U.S. independently. Honda, a onetime member of Brooklyn Funk Essentials, settled in New York in 1987, and Hatori, an alum of the Tokyo rap unit Kimidori and a former club DJ, followed six years later. After meeting in 1994, they first teamed in the Boredoms-inspired noise outfit Leitoh Lychee (translated as "frozen lychee nut"); after that band's breakup, the duo formed Cibo Matto, Italian for "food madness" (their love of culinary delights quickly becoming the stuff of legend).

Viva! La Woman The group soon emerged as a sensation among the Lower Manhattan hipster elite, gaining fame for their incendiary live shows backed by guests including the Lounge Lizards' Dougie Bowne (Honda's ex-husband), Bernie Worrell, Masada's Dave Douglas, and Skeleton Key's Rick Lee. After a pair of acclaimed 1995 independent singles, "Birthday Cake" and "Know Your Chicken," Cibo Matto signed to Warner Bros., surfacing in 1996 with the Mitchell Froom/Tchad Blake-produced Viva! La Woman, a delirious, stunningly inventive record celebrating love, food, and love of food. After touring with guest bassist Sean Lennon and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drummer Russell Simins, the EP Super Relax followed in 1997. Lennon, percussionist Duma Love, and drummer Timo Ellis were installed as full-time members for the follow-up, 1999's Stereo Type A. A few years later, the group disbanded, with Hatori going on to collaborate with Smokey Hormel and Gorillaz, while Honda produced Sean Lennon's Into the Sun and collaborated with the Boredoms' Yoshimi on the album Flower with No Color.
Come Home to Mama Also during this hiatus, between 2002 and 2011 Honda notched up four solo albums; while in late 2009 she joined a revamped lineup of Plastic Ono Band before going onto produce Martha Wainwright's 2012 release Come Home to Mama. In 2011, Honda and Hatori began to write material together once again, and after a few delays, Hotel Valentine -- Cibo Matto's first album in 15 years -- was appropriately released during Valentine's week in 2014.

45 RPM with Daryl Singletary

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Maybe you’re old enough to remember it…the way that music sounded coming out of an A.M. radio in your dad’s truck when he drove you to school in the morning…or the 8-track player at your grandmother’s house…Haggard, Jones, Charley Pride, Ronnie Milsap, Mel Street…. remember…70’s country…. real country. Well, we remember, and we are proud of it. It all started a while back when a few of us Nashville “pickers” decided that we were tired of playing too loud, and that we seldom got the chance anymore to play the music we loved. A few months later, 45 rpm was ready to go...  Several of country music’s biggest names have been known to drop by and set in with the band for a number or two, singing their favorites.

A Day at the Fair: The Tennessee Centennial Exposition

Presented by The Parthenon at The Parthenon

How much was admission to the Tennessee Centennial Exposition in 1897? How many people came? What kind of souvenirs did they take home and what were their favorite rides? These questions and many others intrigue those of us living in Nashville and playing in Centennial Park today. In the absence of a time machine, your best bet for getting answers might be to come to collector David Ewing’s special lecture at the Parthenon.

Many items from Mr. Ewing’s extensive collection of Exposition-related items are part of a recently opened exhibit called A Day at the Fair that allows museum-goers to follow two Nashville families as they wander through the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Mr. Ewing, local attorney and collector of all things Nashville, will not only talk about the fair itself and the artifacts he has collected, but also about how he began collecting, where he finds objects, and what fuels his passion. His knowledge on the subject of the Exposition is encyclopedic and his passion for it and its impact on the city is contagious.

Mr. Ewing is a 9th generation Nashvillian. He is a graduate of University School of Nashville, Connecticut College and Vanderbilt Law School; he practices law with Rudy, Wood, Winstead and Williams.

Acclaimed fiction writer Lorrie Moore to speak at Vanderbilt

Presented by Vanderbilt University at Vanderbilt University - Sarratt Cinema

Distinguished American fiction writer and Vanderbilt University faculty member Lorrie Moore will discuss her latest work in the next installment of Vanderbilt’s Chancellor’s Lecture Series.

Moore’s reading and commentary, “Bark Stories/Stories Bark,” will begin at 5:30pm in Sarratt Cinema. A reception and book signing will precede the talk from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Sarratt Cinema Lobby. The author’s most recent work, Bark: Stories, as well as her other books will be available for purchase at the reception. Both events are free and open to the public, with seating for the talk limited and available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

After many years as a professor of creative writing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Moore joined the Vanderbilt faculty in 2013 as Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of English. Her highly acclaimed Bark: Stories, published in March 2014, is her first short story collection in 16 years and her latest work since the novel A Gate at the Stairs in 2009.

“Reading the luminous stories in Lorrie Moore’s collection is like spending another insanely perfect afternoon with your smartest, most acerbic, tough-minded but loving and loyal friend,” wrote Victoria Redel in her review of Bark for MORE magazine. “Moore is that necessary writer who brilliantly observes the dead-on sorrow and hilarity of our day-to-day. But she’s not out to glibly poke fun … or to glorify gloom; instead, in each of these eight stories, her characters—flawed, middle-aged, divorced, divorcing—are loath to entirely give up.”

“One of the best short story writers in America resumes her remarkable balancing act with a collection that is both hilarious and heartbreaking, sometimes in the same paragraph,” wrote Kirkus in a starred review. “In stories both dark and wry, Moore wields a scalpel with surgical precision.”

Moore graduated summa cum laude from St. Lawrence University in northern New York. She earned a master of fine arts from Cornell University, where her thesis became Self-Help, her first published collection of short stories and winner of the Rea Award for the Short Story in 2004. Novels include A Gate at the Stairs, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? and Anagrams.

Moore, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Literature, has received numerous fellowships and honors for her writing, including the Irish Times International Fiction Prize for her short story collection Birds of America.

Parking for the event will be available in the Terrace Place Garage, located at 21st Avenue South and Terrace Place.

The Vanderbilt Chancellor’s Lecture Series strives to connect the university and the Nashville community with intellectuals who are shaping our world.

An Evening with Joe Scarborough - Crazy Never Wins: A Conversation on Faith, Culture and the Media in our Modern World

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Collins Auditorium

The nation is divided on many key issues. Important conversations and debates are needed, and yet it often seems as if the public voices asked to participate in those dialogues are extreme caricatures of positions most Americans do not hold. How does the average citizen wade through all of the noise? Is the only way forward one that involves drastically ramping-up the rhetoric and making a spectacle in order to draw a crowd?

Is "crazy" the best strategy?

Best-selling author, former congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough will appear on stage with Dr. Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, to engage in a meaningful conversation about the broken moral compass that guides our national conversations about faith, freedom and the cultural issues that divide.

Our moderator for the evening will be WSB radio show host and editor of RedState.com, Erick Erickson.



09/16/14

Tickets are $15 for General Admission and $50 for VIP reserved seating and admittance to a pre-show reception with the speakers

Improv Workshop - How To Create Awesome Scenes

Presented by LOL Nashville at LOL Nashville

Join Greg Tavares for the workshop How To Create Awesome Scenes. Tavares is in Nashville promoting his book – Improv For Everyone. In his book he describes what to do, step-by-step, to create awesome scenes with your partner or group.

In this class he will teach the step-by-step method outlined in his book. You will learn a scenic structure or what he calls the three stages of an improv scene.

Stage 1: Build the agreement
Stage 2: Explore point of view to discover your character’s primary emotional drive
Stage 3: Heighten your character’s drive

He will also teach a technique he uses at the top of every scene he does. This technique called the "Join” gets him on the same page with his partner every time. If you start scenes with the “Join” and follow the scenic structure outlined above you will create awesome scenes every time. Every student in this class will receive a free copy of Tavares' book – Improv For Everyone.

Greg Tavares acts, teaches, and directs in Charleston, South Carolina. He did his first improv show in 1985 and has never stopped. In 1995, he co-founded The Have Nots! with Brandy Sullivan and some other friends. He co-founded Theatre 99 in Charleston with Brandy and Timmy Finch in 2000. He wrote the curriculum taught in Theatre 99’s training program and gets as much out of teaching as he does from being on stage. He performs and teaches at improv festivals all over the country. He has a BFA in acting from the University of South Carolina and an MFA in directing from the University of Nebraska. He is the co-artist director of Theatre 99 and the Charleston Comedy Festival. In 2012 Greg published a step by step guide called Improv For Everyone, you can e-mail him at gregtavares99@gmail.com.

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians. Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them.

 Mary Lynn Rajskub has established herself as a versatile and dynamic actress, writer and performer through impressive television and film roles, as well as stand-out live performances. Her fan-favorite role as computer genius Chloe O’Brian on FOX’s smash hit 24 helped earn the show a 2006 Emmy win for Best Drama, as well as 2006 and 2005 SAG nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Rajskub went to art school for painting but discovered performing arts.

After arriving in Los Angeles, Mary Lynn was cast on David Cross and Bob Odenkirk’s critically acclaimed HBO sketch comedy Series Mr. Show with Bob and David. Quickly thereafter she joined HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. In addition to 24, her recent episodic work includes It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Flight of the Conchords, Raising Hope and Modern Family. Mary Lynn’s big screen credits include Julie and Julia with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, Firewall, opposite Harrison Ford, Legally Blonde II: Red, White, and Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama, Dude, Where’s My Car, and Roadtrip. She can also be seen in indie hits including Sunshine Cleaning, with Amy Adams and Emily Blunt, Academy Award winning Little Miss Sunshine, Punch Drunk Love starring Adam Sandler and in the upcoming film Safety Not Guaranteed which aired at Sundance.

Live Music

While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best.

The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

Wooten & Friends : GET THE FUNK UP!

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Beginning on just another Wednesday in 1992, Regi Wooten took the stage with his bandmates and laid down a night of music so funky, they had to do it again the next week. And the next. And every week after.

Over two decades later, Wednesday nights at 3rd and Lindsley are still ruled by “The Teacher” and a rotating cast of bandmates, tempering their instrumental mastery with a casual, fun-loving attitude. Special guests abound on stage and off, with spontaneous run-ins with the likes of Katy Perry, Cee-Lo Green, Jon Bon Jovi, Elton John, Billy Preston, and Keith Horn, not to mention Regi’s own brothers, Victor, Roy “Futureman,” and Joseph.

Regi Wooten taps on his musical friends for a night of lighthearted grooves, unparalleled musicianship, and spontaneous dancing to remind us to stay funky. Join us in celebrating hump day and spur on the weekend!

Lecture: American Elegy: Andrew Wyeth’s Winter Fields' Presented by Richard H. Axsom

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

Richard H. Axsom will discuss Andrew Wyeth’s early masterpiece "Winter Fields" (1942), a highlight of the exhibition Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art. Wyeth’s enigmatic and unsettling painting takes its rightful place in an exhibition that explores the porous boundary between realism and Surrealism in early twentieth-century American art. Although seemingly an objective document of a dead crow in the open countryside, "Winter Fields" yields far more in its allusive and rich content. Wyeth fashions a deeply American meditation on death and renewal.

Death By Drumstick, A Murder Mystery Dinner Show

Presented by Mel O'Drama Theater at Bella Napoli

Bella Napoli- Step back in time, featuring an old Italian Villa right in the Music Row area.  As soon as you start making your entry to this Italian beauty the air and scenery around you changes to high concrete/brick walls, soft light bulbs strung from one building to the next, against the night sky.  Come inside to the brick lined wall where you are likely to be greeted by the owner Paolo, the manager Ms. Daconto or their pizza man Egidio-all whom are Italian.  

“Death By Drumstick”

Set in Music City in the 1960's, wannabe rock musicians, are competing in the Biggest Battle of the Bands on the Planet, where the winner receives a contract with Gunshot Records.

The contest goes south when the prized drumstick ends up missing and pandemonium ensues when someone ends up dead. The time is right for comic murder mystery. Who will kill and who will be the victim?

Sheriff Pinkerton arrives to question one and all to help solve the hilarious whodunnit set to music featuring popular classic rock songs performed by a live musician and dances from the 60's.

Audience members are encouraged to wear hippie clothes and enjoy an evening of zany, delicious fun as they interact with a fun local cast in this musical murder mystery dinner theatre comedy.

It just doesn’t get any roots-ier than The 5 Spot with the Rocking Roots Guitar Showcase--featuring four of Nashville's hardest rocking six-stringers: Ted Drozdowski, Richie Owens, Nick Kane and Mark Robinson. Each artist will have his own power trio at this show, and each band will play a set of original roots music. Guaranteed to be the most unofficial showcase of all during the Americana Music Association conference week, this special early 5-8 pm show at one of the hottest nightspots in East Nashville puts the focus on high-energy, virtuoso American roots guitar--and the $5 cover makes it cheapest guitar master class in Music City! (AMA wristbands get in free.)

The Showcase artists' pedigree reads like a Who's Who of American roots music; these axe-men have played across the wide range of country, blues, rock, bluegrass, zydeco, and more, and with some of America's musical icons, including Dolly Parton, The Mavericks, Koko Taylor, Townes Van Zandt, Johnny Cash ... and that's just the beginning.

Fasten your seatbelts and hang on to your barstools--this will be one rocking, rolling, roots guitar blast!

At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them. It is also where one might often witness an impromptu jam session with legendary artists, players and writers.

Interview: Marty Stuart with Scott Goldman

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Marty Stuart grew up in Mississippi, where he listened to local radio station WHOC. Stuart recalls the station fondly as “one thousand watts of pure pleasure.” For over forty years the multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer, historian, and five-time Grammy winner has taken the essence of all that he heard—country, gospel, rock, soul—and become a messenger for the rootsy heart and soul of country music. Stuart’s forthcoming double album, Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, provides the perfect backdrop for a conversation with GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Vice President Scott Goldman about his stellar career and the influence of his Mississippi roots. Presented in partnership with the Americana Music Association. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.

Calvary

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous - and often comic - moral problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary. John Michael McDonagh’s brilliantly layered, darkly comedic drama offers a more philosophical reflection on faith, rooted in the biblical story of Calvary’s two thieves—one redeemed, one damned.



08/22/14 - 09/18/14

Belcourt members' film tickets are $6.25.

Funeral, Food, and Fuel at Leptiminus (Lamta, Tunisia): Honoring the Dead in Roman Africa

Presented by The Parthenon at The Parthenon

Although Nashville has become known recently as a food town, dining and food offerings for the dead are not a part of our culture. However, according to textual sources, inscriptions and ancient images, they were a very important element in funerals and commemorations in ancient Roman culture.

Join us for the first symposium of the 2014-15 year which features Dr. Lea Stirling discussing physical evidence of food remains revealed during excavations at the East Cemetery of Leptiminus (modern day Lamta, Tunisia). Since available sources are not specific about actual menus, an important focus of the excavations has been analysis of the bones, seeds, and residues unearthed. Finds related to food preparation and certain architectural features, such as libation tubes and offering tables, have provided further insight.

Lea Stirling is Professor of Classics at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. She earned her MA and PhD in Classical Archaeology from the University of Michigan. She has been visiting scholar at the University of Cincinnati and at the University of Aarhus in Denmark and has done field work in Tunisia, Libya and Italy.

The lecture, which is sponsored by the Archaeoligical Institute of America, Vanderbilt University, and The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park, will take place at the Parthenon at 6:00pm, with a reception following. Admission is free, but reservations are required (862-8431).

Wasted: A Watkins College Collaboration

Presented by Turnip Green Creative Reuse at Turnip Green Creative Reuse (TGCR)

“Wasted” represents the cross point of how, through education, life and individual development, we have been lead to different conceptual vantage points and technical mediums as artists.

As a collaborative effort, “Wasted” ties together the commonalities among coming-of-age artists and the college experience, while still maintaining each individual’s unique perspective. Wasted explores self-identity through daily habits, living arrangements and basic human interaction.

The artists include Watkins College of Art, Design and Film students: Elliot Hay, Micah Matthewson, Corrina Joyner, Josh Jauregui & Chris Fornal.

As always, our friends at Platetone Printmaking, Paper & Book Arts will host a free Open Studio, where guests can create a work of art to take home.

Land Ho!

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Disenchanted with life after retirement, Mitch, a brassy former surgeon, convinces mild-mannered Colin, his ex-brother-in-law, to holiday with him in Iceland. The pair set off through Reykjavik ice bars, trendy spas and adventurous restaurants in an attempt to reclaim their youth. Iceland's vast and haunting landscapes—moss-coated cliffs, fog-shrouded mountains, geothermal pools, and otherworldly Northern Lights—form a primordial Eden and the perfect backdrop for Mitch and Colin's adventures. Co-writers/directors Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz present seniors as we rarely see them in film: multidimensional characters full of life.

It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them.

North African Archaeological Excavations Topic of Talk at Parthenon

Presented by Vanderbilt Department of Classical Studies at The Parthenon

Lea Stirling, associate professor of classics at the University of Manitoba, will deliver an Archaeological Institute of America lecture co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt Department of Classical Studies. Stirling's lecture is titled "Food, Funerals, and Fuel at Leptiminus: Honoring the Dead in Roman Africa."

"Textual sources, inscriptions and ancient images all indicate that dining and food offerings for the dead were an important element in funerals and commemoration," Stirling said. "These discussions are usually unspecific about 'menus,' however, and archaeological evidence of actual food remains has often been sparser still. During excavations at the East Cemetery of Leptiminus, an important focus was to collect physical evidence of food remains, namely bones, seeds and residues.

The lecture is co-sponsored by the Nashville Society of the Archaelogical Institute of America. Interested individuals are encouraged to call (615) 862-8431 to reserve a seat.

Sheriff Scott and the Deputies

at The Hermitage Hotel

As you probably already know, live music was once the staple of The Hermitage Hotel and Capitol Grille. Most notably, Francis Craig and his orchestra charmed guests with their big band sounds in the 1940's. In fact, the first big hit (pre dating the Gold Record) to come out of Nashville was Craig's Near You which helped catapult Nashville to stardom and put us on the map as Music City .

Beginning May 16 music comes home again to The Hermitage Hotel and Capitol Grille. Our music series will feature the musical stylings of Sheriff Scott and the Deputies, an Americana band known for their hits Bartender and Marilyn Monroe.

The series will run on select Fridays throughout the summer. Open to the public and no reservations required, we will be serving our hugely popular Oak Bar Happy Hour Special as well as some fantastic cocktails created just for the occasions.

Interview: Ry Cooder with Barry Mazor

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Extraordinary slide guitarist, producer, composer, and roots music champion Ry Cooder has played a central role in shaping American music for nearly fifty years. He has added prized string textures to the records of everyone from Rodney Crowell to the Rolling Stones, Phil Ochs to Pop Staples, Bobby Bare to Captain Beefheart. His groundbreaking solo albums of the 1970s introduced flavor after flavor of American and world roots music to pop and rock audiences, while demonstrating that the exploration was allowed to be fun. His soundtracks for such films as The Long Ryders, Streets of Fire, and Paris, Texas; his Grammy-winning production of the historic Buena Vista Social Club sessions; his production of recent records by Mavis Staples and the Haden Triplets; and his own pointed, often political records of this decade, have added to his remarkable legacy. Music journalist and author Barry Mazor will lead Cooder in a one-on-one conversation. Presented in partnership with the Americana Music Association. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.

About Mike Farris & The Roseland Rhythm Revue: 

Performing songs in support of Mollie from his debut album, Shine For All the People

“Out of the arms of defeat Mike Farris has done a victory lap... He takes people who are hurting, who are broken, who think they are alone and through just the sound of his voice he lets them know that they’re not...that’s magic.” —songwriter Mary Gauthier

There’s a hallowed hall, deep within the recesses of the heart, where an amazing truth resides: The power in your life can only be experienced when broken open and shared with the people who come into it.

Back in 2005, Mike Farris cracked open the hallway door when, for the first time since the age of 15 he was clean and sober. Recording what would become the critically acclaimed Salvation in Lights (2007), a resurrected Mike eagerly anticipated the future. But with two ruptured discs, back surgery and the death of his beloved manager Rose McGathy all within a few weeks of the record’s release, a rolling fog settled in. And with it, denial.

Nevertheless, Mike’s career was picking up steam. He won an Americana Music Award for New/Emerging Artist in 2008, followed by a Dove Award in 2010. His live performances at Bonnaroo, SxSW, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, and others—were drawing rave reviews. Revered artists like Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, and Marty Stuart were struck by his incomparable voice, and Mike opened shows for Patti LaBelle, Mavis Staples, Blind Boys of Alabama, Ricky Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby.

By 2010, having released the Award winning live recording SHOUT! Live and then an EP for Nashville flood relief efforts, Mike launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his next record, an independent release. His fans generously funded the project.

Serious invitations kept coming: first, to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame’s 16th Annual American Music Masters concert honoring Aretha Franklin, then TEDx Nashville, and then to the inaugural Austin City Limits Hall of Fame with Double Trouble.

Mike’s spirited, soul-gospel fusion had found an enthusiastic audience, but denial has a way of biting back. Compared to his former life, he thought he was fine, but truth be told, Mike had become addicted to pain medication. The new album would have to take a back seat to a painful, life-changing recovery. Mike went to rehab and finally began excavating the root causes of his addiction with the help of support groups at AA and NA. An isolator by nature, he struggled laying all his secrets on the table for complete strangers, but gained encouragement through the stories of others. Each honest step led to fertile, hopeful ground.

What eventually emerged from that fertile ground is Shine for All the People, the evolution of true sobriety, of finding a new identity as a servant, first as a man but also as an artist. “I’d been working on the record before my recovery, and then there was a pretty huge delay,” explains Mike, who recently signed with Compass Records. “I had to back up, take time to grab the ground, to re-acclimate, to learn how to live now, truly sober for the first time since I was a kid.”

This new normal included getting back to the process of creating new music, but there was a distinctive trajectory shift in Mike. “So many avenues of music flow through me, 100s of years of music, the music that I grew up with—from Blues, Rock, R&B and gospel—there had always been this pressure to try to force it into a box that would sell somehow. It’s crazy and overwhelming at times, the weight of trying to meet expectations and make a living, but this time, that all fell away. I know now, that this gift only exists to encourage people in their struggles and if there’s any power in it, it’s not from me.”

Set for release in September 2014, Shine for All the People pushes beyond Salvation in Lights in that it reveals hope not in any glory to come, but in the failures and suffering of the present. “My music has always been first and foremost for the downtrodden, the wayward...people who’ve had to go up the rough side of the mountain. Even when it’s upbeat and inspiring, there’s always been an element of pain, because truth be told, we’re all broken. Not everybody knows it, but we all are.”

From the opening Cuban/St. Louis blues horns of “River Jordan,” originally written and performed by Blind Willie McTell, to the divine salvation of J.B. Lenoir’s “Jonah & the Whale,” to the determined stance of the Rev. C.J. Johnson’s “Something Keeps on Telling Me,” a chorus/mantra that Mike fleshed out into a song in the months after rehab...one listen, and it’s clear there’s something mystical in the waters here.

“When I first heard the Rev. C.J. Johnson’s version, I could feel the air in that church get still, no music, only the sound of feet on the floor and hands in the air,” Mike says. “I got such strength from it, I knew I wanted to add part of my story.” With his words as the chorus, and with Brigitte DeMeyer helping me out, the song serves as a compass for anyone who has lost their way.

Mary Gauthier’s soul-stirring “Mercy Now,” one of the first songs Mike chose for the record, is clearly foundational to the whole. “The song just mystically appeared before me a few months before my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer,” he says. “Not only did it play a major roll in just helping me deal with the year that followed, including his death, but brought comfort to my entire family.”

Like other choice cuts on Shine for All the People, the songs simply arrived at the appointed time, Mike says. “There was a time when I carried all the songwriting on my shoulders, but then the ego gets in the way of what it should be. These days, I don’t have to write everything. I just open the door and these songs show up... songs I need to hear in my struggle, songs I know people need to hear in theirs.”

Whether rearranging songs of centuries past or infusing new lyrical life to half-songs, it becomes clear that Mike’s vocal gift is simply the surface of a very deep well. Full-tilt originals include “Real Fine Day,” a poetic account of the birth of Christian Blue Sky Farris that features some killer Kenny Vaughn guitar hooks—“easily one of the top three days of my life, that day,” Mike says, and “Power of Love,” an unforgettable, high-energy soul groove and already an audience favorite.

Shine for All the People bears witness to the determination of putting one foot in front of the other and to the power of music to get you there. “I’ve discovered that falling is a divine thing,” Mike adds. “It’s part and parcel of being human. The important thing is to keep the faith, get up and go on.

Songwriter Session: Billy Joe Shaver

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Johnny Cash, Tom T. Hall, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Willie Nelson—great songwriters all—each have recorded several Billy Joe Shaver songs over the years. That speaks to Shaver’s top-rank standing among Country Music Hall of Fame artists: His songs pack an emotional punch, all told in a colorful language all of his own. Shaver’s best-known songs—“Georgia on a Fast Train,” “Honky Tonk Heroes,” “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal,” “Live Forever,” “You Asked Me To”—represent the pinnacle of hard-knuckled, open-hearted Texas songwriting. Shaver’s new album, Long in the Tooth, is yet another honky- tonk gem. Presented in partnership with the Americana Music Association. Free to museum members and AMA badge-holders. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.

Concert: Honky-Tonkin’: Twenty Years on Lower Broad

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

When the Opry moved to the suburbs in 1974, Nashville’s Broadway (commonly known as Lower Broad) began to succumb to the forces of urban decay. But in a July 1995 Billboard cover story, Chet Flippo wrote about a “new scene” that had “developed on its own in Music City.” Encouraged by the 1994 opening of the remodeled Ryman Auditorium, progressive, tradition-based country artists like BR549, Paul Burch, Greg Garing, R.B. Morris, and others moved into the honky-tonks of Lower Broad to create that scene, eventually inspiring a downtown renaissance that continues today. Those musicians will perform and share stories of the heady days of 1994 on the twentieth anniversary of the Lower Broad revival. Presented in partnership with the Americana Music Association. Included with museum admission. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians.

It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them.

Presented by MTSU Write (formerly The Writer's Loft) at MTSU - James Union Building

Award-winning novelist, short story writer and essayist Tony Earley, author of the upcoming novella and stories Mr. Tall, will be the keynote speaker at the Creative Writers Conference of Middle Tennessee.

The conference is sponsored by MTSU Write, a non-degree writing program at Middle Tennessee State University (formerly The Writer’s Loft). The event, which is open to the public, is in its second year and will include speakers in fiction, nonfiction and poetry, says MTSU Write director Karen Alea Ford.  "Beginning and experienced writers will gain insight and inspiration from this extraordinary line-up of speakers, while getting to chat and mingle with the community of writers we have in Middle Tennessee,” says director Ford. “Our first conference was such a success, we wanted to keep it going. We are thrilled that Parnassus Booksellers will be joining us this year.”

Earley, who is the Samuel Milton Fleming Chair in English at Vanderbilt University, is also the author of the novels Jim the Boy and The Blue Star, and two books of essays, Somehow Form a Family and Here We Are in Paradise. In addition to Earley, the event presents a roster of award-winning writers: poet Jeff Hardin (Fall Sanctuary and Notes For a Praise Book), poet and novelist Darnell Arnoult (What Travels With Us and Sufficient Grace), and essayist and memoirist D.T. Lumpkin.

"The Creative Writers Conference of Middle Tennessee is a truly welcome addition to the state's literary scene: a great chance for up-and-coming writers in a the mid-state to learn from celebrated writers and outstanding teachers," said Margaret Renkl, editor of Chapter16.org, a daily source for literary news, interviews and reviews with a Tennessee focus.

MTSU Write non-degree writing program is year-round and open to anyone interested in being mentored by a professional writer of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry. Students work from home, spending three semesters honing their skills and preparing for publication. Mentors who work one-on-one with students include "The Bard of Hume-Fogg" Bill Brown, former Tennessean assistant editor and columnist Gloria Ballard, poet Marcus Jackson (The New Yorker, Harvard Review) and novelist Linda Busby Parker (University of S. AL, winner of the James Jones novel award), among others.

NJW is delighted to announce the next in the series of monthly appearances by one of Nashville's true musical treasures - the Beegie Adair Trio!

She has accompanied many legendary performers in many different genres.

Recently awarded as a 2013 "Jazz Hero" by the Jazz Journalist Association, Beegie is one of the most accomplished and highly regarded musicians in Music City. Her recordings are literally among the highest selling jazz albums in the world, and she was the highest selling jazz artist in Japan in 2010 - with three albums in Sound Scan's top 10. The trio's live recording The Real Thing was listed as #26 in JazzWeek's top 100 recordings of 2012. It is the latest of 35 CD's the trio has recorded together!

twenty one pilots

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

In its purest form music acts as a conduit of self-expression that's free from the conventions of society and that spirit of fearlessness lies at the core of twenty one pilots, a group whose musical vision is completely their own. Over the past few years
the duo of frontman Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun have built a hardcore following that seems primed to reach a fever pitch with the release of their Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel.

"The first song I ever played on the piano was my own. I nevertook any lessons," Joseph responds when asked about his musical background. "I looked at the piano and realized that music was a way of being able to say something; the phrase I always use is that 'music is a vessel' and that's where the album title comes from." Before long Joseph was writing and recording his own demos in his basement and twenty | one | pilots was born.

The Columbus, Ohio-based band started out like most acts but instead of aimlessly touring they concentrated on theirhometown base and before long they were selling out huge local venues like Newport Music Hall despite the fact they only had two self-
recorded releases available. "Every show we play our hearts out because where we come from you have to grab people's attention and make sure that they never forget you," Joseph says. "In our case we were able to build up a fanbase - one that walked with us to grab the attention of the music industry outside of our hometown eventually opening up the doors that have led to so many opportunities to take our music around the world on what is an amazing journey".

The duo's ability to build up this local base was confirmed when the band sold out the 2,300-capacity LC Pavilion last April to announce that they were signing to Fueled By Ramen, after being courted by over a dozen labels. That's right, there was no fancy marketing or gimmickry that lead to twenty one pilots' rise, it was based solely on the organic relationship they cultivated with their fans via their music, live performances and online content. "To our fans we say we never got our big break, you created our big break. Thank you," Joseph says.

For Vessel the band entered a real studio for the first time ever with Grammy nominated producer Greg Wells (Weezer, Adele) to craft an album which merges elements of hip- hop, indie rock and punk in a way that's so seamless that you'll be rapping along one minute and caught up in a lush orchestral line on a song like "Car Radio " in the next minute. “We're not trying to consciously do something different but we've just never
emulated any other bands" Joseph explains. "We've never fit into any particular scene so we figured we would just make our own."


From the impossibly catchy groove of "Semi-Automatic" to the high-energy hip-hop of "Holding On To You" and the ambient electronic experimentation of "Trees," Vessel is a complex collection of songs that shows why twenty one pilots are the latest addition to Fueled By Ramen's extremely selective roster. "'Ode To Sleep' is a song I'm really proud of because it's really odd when it comes to structure; it challenges the listener,"
Joseph explains. "Ultimately I think those are the types of moments that make our fans really connect to our music."

Sounding so unique was never an obstacle for twenty one pilots early on, in fact it has been a trait that has endeared them to their fans. "I don't think there are a lot of bands that can play a hardcore show one night or a hip-hop show the next night and know that it will work," Dun explains, adding that the band's live performances have always been integral to the act. "We want our fans to leave all of their problems at the door and
immerse themselves in the music, the moment, when we perform live," he adds. "In the end it's a giant release for everybody."

"We went from not having a glimmer of hope to all of the sudden having the opportunity to leave Columbus and make a record and that's something that we're never going to take for granted," Joseph summarizes. "The songs on Vessel represent who we are and now we get to take this collection of songs, this body of work, to the world," he continues. "It is not a short term thing for us, we're planning on being around for a long time."

Sundays LIVE: David Haggard of Tennessee State Parks, Birds of Prey

Presented by The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson at The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson

Experience Sundays LIVE!, a compelling living history series that explores the 19th century early republic and takes visitors further into the stories of the people that made The Hermitage home. Beginning the first Sunday in June and running every Sunday throughout September, costumed interpreters will bring history to life in their discussion of events from the lifetime and influence of General Andrew Jackson and his family.

September 21 David Haggard of Tennessee State Parks, Birds of Prey

The Hermitage cares for 1120 protected acres of forest and field. Over time, many species of bird, mammal, and reptile have found sanctuary on these grounds. The Tennessee State Parks present birds of prey that are native to Tennessee, and present them to the public. They will focus on their habitats, their relationship to humans, and the cultural importances they hold.

Sundays LIVE! presentations tell the story of Jacksonian America: women's roles, the biographies of important players of the era, and the foodways and folkways of frontier America in the 19th century. Each Sunday will bring a new presentation and a new learning opportunity. In 2014, as we celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the War of 1812, visitors will learn how the war impacted life for thousands of Tennesseans.

Cody Adcock Childhood Cancer Awareness Motors & Music Benefit

Presented by Prayers For Cody Adcock at The Smiley Hollow Old Fashioned Hayride & Barndance Company

Cody Adcock Childhood Cancer Awareness Motors & Music Benefit
September 21
12pm-10pm

This is an AMAZING event. We are honored to present what we believe will truly raise the bar of awareness for childhood cancer in September , which is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and WE owe it all to one man....Cody Adcock.

The Cody Adcock story.
Cody was diagnosed with GBM brain cancer earlier this year. Always having lived a life of morals and taught a code of ethics that made him the young man he is. He is a fighter with a heart the size of Texas.
He originally had a Childhood Cancer Awareness TRIBUTE BIKE RIDE being organized by David Graves Jr. and Cody asked another friend to help organize a concert to be held for the riders and his community to CELEBRATE LIFE.
The name Smiley Hollow was mentioned to a certain person and he decided to reach out by phone to the facility. Upon contact with the general manager and family of the Hollow the beauty of the story began to unfold. Smiley Hollow was built in the 60s and was originally called Adcock Hollow. Billy and Nancy Adcock (Codys grandparents) had donated a portion of the cedar trees to facilatate the construction of the Hollow. It was years later it was renamed Smiley Hollow. When management and board committees heard the story of Cody they decided to pay-it-forward by allowing the event to be held in the Hollow.
Cody has stepped up and told his request was to have a concert and continue this family legacy by his own little pay-it-forward moment. Even though he himself is in need of funding he is donating 25% of all proceeds to a great and inspirational. 501c3 non-profit called JoeJoeBear Foundation .
Check them out at www.joejoebear.org.
They specialize in donating new teddy bears to children in and out of hospitals. They send them to kids around the states by air, mail, or delivered directly to childrens hospitals in several states. Over 15,000 bears have gone out.
We are proud to have this opportunity to do this during Childhood Cancer Awareness month for Cody and all the kids we can.

Family Oriented event (Very kid friendly)
Concert starts around 3pm until......Mila Mason, Glenn & Dottie Tubb, Kayton Roberts, and many more!
There will be two stage set ups.
We plan to offer an exotic petting zoo, Inflatables, Face Painting, Dunk Tanks, etc.
We will also be launching a International Childhood Cancer Balloon Release on September 21 .

Fiddler on the Roof

Presented by Studio Tenn Theatre Company at Jamison Hall, The Factory

Boasting a legacy as an immediate and enduring international sensation, “Fiddler on the Roof” opens Studio Tenn’s fifth season. Its 1964 debut claimed ten Tony Awards along with the title of longest-running Broadway musical of all time—a record it held for nearly a decade.

Inspired by the stories of Sholem Aleichem, the musical comedy-drama follows Tevye the dairyman, a Jew of fervid faith raising five daughters in an increasingly tumultuous turn-of-the-century Russia. At once entertaining and contemplative, “Fiddler” poignantly weaves together moments of levity and gravity, grappling with universal human themes that resonate across cultures. Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s memorable music have pervaded the American soundtrack well beyond the realm of theatre.

NJW Jam Session ft. Bassist and Vocalist Jim Ferguson

Presented by Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop

Jam sessions are led by saxophonist Evan Cobb and his quartet, with a featured guest artist each month. Participation is designed for musicians of all ability levels. Besides playing (or singing) a few choice selections, the guest artist will speak about the songs they selected, learning tunes in general, and their personal experiences with jam sessions. The host band will also provide the guest artist with a new tune (with copies for everyone in attendance) so that the audience can hear how a professional dissects a chart on the fly while on the bandstand! All in attendance at the jam will also receive a copy of a tune (most likely a blues) for them to try in just the same manner as the featured guest. The focus of the workshop jazz jam will be to learn about playing, listening critically, and the process of jam sessions altogether.

The Next Jam Session is Sunday, September 21 w/ featured guest - Bassist and Vocalist Jim Ferguson.

All instruments and vocalists are invited. Admission is free and anyone is welcome to attend.

Nashville Sunday Night: Sean McConnell with Ben Danaher

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays

Growing up in the coffee houses of the Boston folk scene, Sean watched his parents playing songs written by Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, David Wilcox, Shawn Colvin, Harry Chapin, CSNY, James Taylor and others of the like. Unknown to himself or his parents, Sean was soaking it all in and locking it away somewhere inside.

Now, an artist in his own right, Sean travels the states performing his own style of music that he describes as “Lyric Driven Roots Rock with Soul.” A live Sean McConnell show is truly a dynamic experience. One moment reckless rock, and the next an intimate acoustic pin drop moment. While most of his performances these days are backed by his four piece band, you can sometimes find him by himself on a stool with a guitar getting back to the basics. “In whatever case”, McConnell says, “It’s all about the song. That never changes. It always starts with an acoustic guitar and a notepad. The lyrics are the point. The story is central.”

Snarky Puppy with Banda Magda

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Snarky Puppy is truly a different kind of musical animal. 

The once Texan, now New York-based quasi-collective has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Although still “underground” in many respects, the band has earned high praise from critical stalwarts like the BBC, Village Voice, Guardian, and Boston Herald, and has performed at some of the best venues and festivals in Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America.

The band has always used live performance as its chief form of evangelism, and maintains a more intense tour schedule than almost any band in the idiom. Over the course of 2013, Snarky Puppy will give almost 200 performances and workshops on four continents, including North Sea Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz á Vienne, Blue Note Tokyo, and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. Their last album, the live DVD/CD “GroundUP,” reached #14 on the Billboard Jazz Charts and #3 on the ITunes Jazz Charts in 2012, topped only by Grammy winners Robert Glasper and Esperanza Spalding.

Mike Henderson. Talented singer, songwriter (If The Jukebox Took Teardrops, Harder Cards), multi instrumentalist and multi band member. Is there anything he can’t do?

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

The Doyle and Debbie Show is sublime parody, simultaneously lampooning and idolizing country music's tradition of iconic duos and their subsequent battle of the sexes. Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton wield the vocals of vintage country stars and the acting chops of Broadway veterans, taking audiences on a freewheeling joyride through a wickedly funny script and slew of equally hilarious original songs. Over the past two years, Doyle and Debbie have developed a rabid cult following in Nashville, many of whom have seen the show over a dozen times - everyone from theater-going professionals to college students who wouldn't be caught dead in a theater or a country bar.

Presented by Belmont Mansion at Belmont Mansion

Wood and his troops for two weeks prior to the Battle of Nashville fought on December 15 & 16, 1864. Primary source research indicates one of the rooms in the mansion was used as a chapel for the officers and soldiers. The lecture series will shed light on the intriguing history of Belmont Mansion during this watershed event in American history.

On Tuesday, September 23th Mark Brown, Executive Director of Belmont Mansion will speak on the 14 days leading up to the December 1864 Battle of Nashville. During this time Belmont Mansion was occupied by Union General Thomas J. Wood. Drawing from primary resources, Brown will discuss the home-front scenes which the Acklen family members experienced during this time along with the military preparations taking place on the grounds of the mansion and surrounding areas. Brown received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Belmont University in 1977 and as a student worked at Belmont Mansion during the early years of restoration. After graduate studies in Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University, he served as the Supervisor of Historians at The Hermitage from 1975-1979 and Executive Director at Blount Mansion in Knoxville, Tennessee from 1979-1986 before returning to Belmont Mansion where he has served as Executive Director since 1986.

Chuck Foster Band With Ballhog featuring A Tribute to JJ Cale

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Chuck Foster is a Nashville singer-songwriter with an original vintage country sound mixed with southern soul.

Born and raised outside of Nashville TN, Chuck Foster grew up playing gospel piano and guitar in his hometown Methodist church. That influence, coupled with a heavy dose of artists such as Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings, helped to shape Fosters original county soul sound. Foster formed popular southern rock/jam band Old Union in 2001, and began honing his songwriting skills in front of audiences around the country. In 2004, Old Union was chosen to be the backing band for legendary artist Bonnie Bramlett, with whom they toured throughout North America until 2006.

With the success of Old Union, and his desire to convey his country roots, Foster began work on "Gettin' Back To Livin'" in late 2010. At its heart, the album is a reflection of the early country influences that shaped the style that Foster wanted to capture in his own lyrics and music. "I wanted to showcase the side of my music that came the most natural to me." Using the talents of long time friend and Old Union guitarist Steve Swertfeger, bassist Johnny Few, and Nashville drummer Justin Amaral, the outfit brought the songs to life that Foster had envisioned. "Getting Back To Livin" encompasses sounds ranging from classic honky-tonk to delta blues and soul, and the album highlights Chuck Fosters ability to bring the two genres together.

Clare College Choir in Concert

Presented by Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University - Blair School of Music - Ingram Hall

Graham Ross, director

Great British Pairings
Since the founding of a mixed-voice choir in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing throughout the UK and the world. The choir has been fortunate to have had four very fine directors: Peter Dennison, acclaimed composer John Rutter, Timothy Brown, and since 2010, Graham Ross. For this concert, the choir presents a set of choral contrasts — the entire program consists of pairs of different settings of a text: Anton Bruckner and Robert Parsons’ versions of the Ave Maria, a plainchant Christus Vincit followed by James MacMillian’s modern setting, and many more!

BANKS: The Goddess Tour

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

“Governors Ball 2014: Top 10 Best Performances” – Billboard

“The 14 Coolest Bands of Bonnaroo 2014” – Time.com

“She works hard on stage to articulate these emotions while retaining the smoothness of her voice… Yeah, she got hurt and was once in the dark, but from her performance at Governors Ball, it's obvious that she's emerged from the shadows to tell the tale with the benefit of hindsight.” – Complex

“Banks is undeniably a talent…Her voice is a fluid thing, slipping between Adele's smoky croon and a raw mid-range that's not unlike Rihanna at her most emotionally vulnerable.” – Village Voice

“She may have the delicate looks of a ’90s Calvin Klein billboard—all dark eyes and sleek middle-parted hair— but when Banks opens her mouth, a different aspect of that decade comes to mind. Read it here first: Goldenage R&B may be looking at a renaissance. The 25-year old’s throaty vocals have been compared to those of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, a torch she carries with pride.” – ELLE Magazine

“BANKS is poised to finally take her homeland in 2014.”  – V Magazine

“10 rising acts you should know now… Her new single, the simmering, candlelit ‘Brain,’ features the vocalist’s smoky tone, crawling phrasing and sinister, Massive Attack-suggestive production from established beatmaker Shlohmo.” - Los Angeles Times

Magmart's F.I.V.E. FEELINGS INTERNATIONAL VIDEOART EXPERIENCE

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space

F.I.V.E. is the new international video art project created by Magmart. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Through these five senses we interact with the world - and with other people. These senses are our interface.

Like for Magmart's previous project, 100×100=900 Videoartists to Tell a Century, the goal is the same: to look, with the gaze of videoartists, onto mankind. And if for 100×100=900 the subject was the human history of the 1900s, F.I.V.E. focuses on the senses, on how we relate with those outside one's self. Senses are the medium between the world and us, are the instruments of feeling. They channel to us all the information that comes from the universe; they supply, even literally, the food for our body and for our mind.
There are 25 short videos, comprised of five videos representing the five senses from five continents.

International Lens Film: Still Life

Presented by Vanderbilt University - International Lens at Vanderbilt University - Sarratt Cinema

 Presented by: Jennifer Fay, Associate Professor of Film and English and Director, Program in Cinema & Media Arts and Lutz Koepnick, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of German and Cinema & Media Arts
China, Hong Kong (2006) Dir: Zhangke Jia. This haunting minimalist drama takes as its focal point the real-life construction of the Three Gorges Hydro Project and its accompanying massive dam over the Yangtze River in China (allegedly the largest manmade dam in the world). This project required engineers to flood the surrounding territories, including the two millennia-old city of Fengjie. Jia interweaves two stories in connection with the geographical transformation of that area while the old structures of Fengjie are continually destroyed and new, makeshift structures installed as replacements. Mandarin with English subtitles. 111 minutes. Funding provided by the Program in Cinema & Media Arts.

An Evening With TERRY BOZZIO

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

TERRY BOZZIO - An Evening of Solo Drum Music" is a unique, intense, dynamic, spiritualistic, melodic, orchestral, atmospheric, and musical performance on the largest tuned drum & percussion set in the world. Unless you have seen Terry, you have no idea what you are in for. Bozzio is an enigmatic, evocative, and engaging musician whose instrument just happens to be the drums. Terry Bozzio is able to accompany himself with bass note patterns and, at the same time, melodically solo on top with highly developed coordination skills to express a complete musical statement on the drum set alone. Drawing from jazz, classical, & ethnic percussion styles from around the world, Terry Bozzio is "a storyteller," able to weave a hypnotic spell over audiences and enthrall them with an eclectic experience filled with contrast, variety, intimacy, excitement, & passion.

Terry has had tremendous success with his last two Terry Bozzio solo drum performance tours in Europe (2012 included his headline show a the Jazz Festival Frankfurt – the oldest jazz festival in the world – and 2013 which included sold out performances in Sweden, Germany, Eastern Europe, and France). Please note that this is not a bombastic 2 hour drum solo. This is MUSIC on drums, “an evening with Terry Bozzio.” In most of Bozzio’s works, he accompanies himself with bass lines while soloing over it melodically on the tuned toms. There is space, classical forms & structures, ambient electronic loops, and atmospheric percussion effects, as well as some exciting & fiery drumming that brings audiences to their feet!

TYCHO with Christopher Willits

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Reaching an entire new realm of sonic possibilities this time out, Awake is situated in the present, reaching Hansen’s vision of Tycho like never before. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.”

Following 2011’s Dive LP, the San Francisco, California based designer toured extensively, accompanied by a full band on stage, his sound coalesced into a percussive, organic whole. Zac Brown (guitars, bass) continued to join Scott on the road, but it was the particular addition of Rory O’Connor’s live drumming that ultimately sent Hansen back to the studio with a more precise vision for what the future of what Tycho could be. “After the tour, I decided that I wanted to capture the more energetic, driven sound of the live show on the next album,” Hansen recalls. Bringing musicians into Tycho’s creative process was a step towards expanding his own songwriting and advancing the project beyond its current incarnation.

In a cabin near Lake Tahoe last winter, Hansen and Brown began fleshing out the structure of the new record, but it wasn’t until they set up shop in the hills of Santa Cruz with O’Connor that it all fell into place. “It crystallized the vision of how the drums would come to the forefront on this record,” says Hansen. The sound was much more stripped-down and concise with live instruments coming to the forefront. Perhaps it was leading up to this all along, songs like “Montana” and “Awake” perfectly exemplify Tycho’s new, amped up, sound – unique to the group effort poured into the songs on the new record – while “See” and “Dye” echo ideas from previous works but with a clear with a view to the future. Working with Count Eldridge, who also engineered Dive, the team could fixate on the pulses that Tycho might have previously layered under synthesizers and exhume them with distinct bass and guitar patterns. Together they bridge an ethereal middle ground between old memories and new experiences, “While I grew up in California, I spent a lot of time as a kid in places like Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Montana,” says Hansen, ”I got back in touch with those areas over the past few years and they inspired me a great deal.” Hansen went on to build those images into the foundation behind the artwork for Awake, “I created the cover art to be a symbol, or a flag, to represent this fictional region comprised of idealized elements of all these western states.”

Also known for his design work as ISO50, Hansen’s visual and sonic efforts have dovetailed throughout the course of his career. “This is the first time in my life I’ve dropped everything to focus on one artistic pursuit,” notes Hansen. Previous Tycho releases came to fruition from Hansen’s delicate solo approach to constructing a song, tweaking each peak and valley, but ‘Awake’ is three like-minded people coming together where music becomes the sole purpose and true expression becomes the result.

Randy Rogers Band

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Sing it. Live it. The words came off the cuff during the Randy Rogers Band’s performance of “Better Off Wrong” in the midst of a two-night stand in Helotes, Texas.

There’s a determination in the percussive flow of drummer Les Lawless, a burning tension in the guitar lines of Geoffrey Hill, a searing texture to the fiddle fills of Brady Black and a rock-steady ferocity in the bass work of Johnny “Chops” Richardson. Knitting it together, there’s a gritty believability in the voice of frontman Rogers, who owns a warm and rugged everyman tone in his voice.

It’s the wear and tear of commitment. The Randy Rogers Band has existed since October 2000, and hasn’t had a personnel change since Lawless and Black came aboard around the end of 2002. It’s a remarkable consistency in a business that’s littered with nasty break-ups and legendary feuds. “Hopefully, I write songs that people live,” Rogers reflects. “I think that's why we all do this as writers, reporters included. You want people to relate to you and hope that maybe you’ve been through something similar that could possibly help them.”

Curator’s Perspective: Kandinsky: A Retrospective presented by Angela Lampe

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

There are not many artists who successively adopted three nationalities during their lifetime. Wassily Kandinsky was born in Russia, achieved renown as a pioneer of abstraction and as a teacher at the Bauhaus art school in Germany, and settled in Paris where he was buried as a French citizen in 1944. In each country, in each context, he found new inspiration for his art. This lecture provides a journey through the life and work of one of the great masters of modern art. Kandinsky: A Retrospective is on view in the Ingram Gallery from September 26, 2014–January 4, 2015.

Bobby Bare & Bobby Bare, Jr.

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Bobby Bare’s first single on RCA, Shame On Me, was both a Pop and a Country hit. A year later he recorded one of his best-known songs, Detroit City (written by Mel Tillis and Danny Dill) and it too was a huge Country/Pop chart success. Followed by such other top 10 hits as 500 Miles (Away From Home), Miller’s Cave, Four Strong Winds, It’s Alright, The Streets of Baltimore, and (Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn, Bare’s RCA recordings solidified his standing as a major artist in both the Country and Pop fields. He won a Grammy for “Best Country Recording” with Detroit City and also was nominated over the next several years for “Best Country Single” and “Best Male Country Vocal Performance.”

Bobby Bare Jr. was nominated for a grammy at the age of 6 years old for a duet with his dad called “daddy what if” – written by Shel Silverstein - that year the grammy for “country duet of the year” went to THE POINTER SISTERS.

Star Party - September

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Bowie Nature Park

Star parties are a great way to become acquainted with the real night sky. Astronomy enthusiasts from all around the area gather under a clear night sky to view the astronomical sights above. It doesn't matter whether you have a degree in astrophysics or you don't know which end of a telescope to look in, everyone is welcome. Even if you're just a beginner, a star party can be a great introduction to the night sky. If you have a telescope or binoculars, bring them along - the more, the merrier!

To escape the effects of light pollution, star parties are often held far away from city lights. Sometimes, though, we'll meet right in front of Adventure Science Center for a look at brighter objects like the Moon and planets.

Opening: Watkins' faculty show “Monuments, Hotel Soap and Linear Progressions"

Presented by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents “Monuments, Hotel Soap and Linear Progressions,” a multiple media exhibition featuring recent work by faculty artists Mary Addison Hackett, Ariel Lavery, Robin Paris and Tom Williams, from September 4–26 in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on campus.

The exhibition's opening reception, from 5:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, September 4, is free and open to the public.

An adjunct instructor in Watkins’ Department of Fine Art, Mary Addison Hackett is a painter who has recently returned to the South after an extended leave of absence. The paintings for this show are the result of fieldwork and were painted from direct observation of objects in-situ around her childhood home (which is also her current studio) as well as a recent camping trip. Progressing through the seasons they capture the nuances of day-to-day life as revealed in domestic, work and leisure spaces.

Ariel Lavery, who joined the Watkins Fine Art department this semester as Assistant Professor of Sculpture, is exhibiting two sculptures that install together: “As We Continue to Move Forward” (found objects and mixed media) and “Linear Progression of Chest, Wall Shelf, Shoe Organizer, Broiler Pan, and Napkin Rings.” Lavery’s assembled sculptures and installations reflect on a concept of Middle America as it is defined in domestic goods. She borrows from American domestic vernacular to create mutated versions of home living spaces, “sampling” from her immediate surroundings as she collects detritus found in thrift stores, at garage sales, on Craigslist, and on the side of the road.

In a collaborative project, Associate Professor of Photography Robin Paris and Assistant Professor of Art History Tom Williams will show photographic abstractions of figurative monuments made throughout the South and elsewhere. Paris and Williams set aside the lessons of “good” photography to transform the subjects into shadowy, indeterminate figures. These photographs obliterate the likenesses and context of these statues, but simultaneously emphasize their strident poses and emphatic gestures. In this way, they draw focus away from individual monuments and towards the generalized rhetoric of political monumentality, addressing the subtle persuasions of sculptures that often seem little more than props in the mise-en-scène of everyday life.

About Mary Addison Hackett
Born and raised in the South, Hackett migrated to Los Angeles via Chicago, and has been exhibiting in commercial, non-profit and university galleries in the United States and abroad since the early 90's. She holds an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a BFA in Painting from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her work alludes to the ever-shifting construction of meaning, memory and representation in day-to-day life. In her current work, Hackett hones her focus on a sense of place by engaging primarily in the practice of observational painting while still acknowledging her roots in abstraction. Recent exhibitions include Tinney Contemporary and Leu Gallery at Belmont University (Nashville); ACME and WEEKEND (Los Angeles); Torrance Art Museum (Torrance, CA); and John Davis Gallery (Hudson, NY). Her debut solo exhibition at Kristi Engle Gallery (2008) in Los Angeles was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times, and she has been featured in numerous other publications. She is represented by David Lusk Gallery; her first solo with the Nashville gallery opens October 1, 2014.

About Ariel Lavery
Ariel Lavery graduated magna cum laude with her BFA from the University of Colorado Boulder (2007) and received her MFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2013). She has exhibited nationally in Colorado, Kentucky, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Texas, Tennessee, Vermont, and Washington, DC. Recent solo exhibitions include Project 1 at Zephyr Gallery in Louisville, KY and Detritus In Situ at the Herter Gallery, University of Massachusetts Amherst. Recent group exhibitions include Fresh at the AVA Gallery (Chattanooga, TN), Best of the Northeast at the Helen Day Art Center (Stowe, VT), and Ice Breaker 5 at the Ice Cube Gallery (Denver). She is also a recent recipient of the Artist Enrichment Grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women.


About Robin Paris and Tom Williams
Currently chair of the Photography department at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, Robin Paris earned a BA in Studio Art from the Evergreen State College (Olympia, WA) and studied visual anthropology and creative writing before earning her MFA in photography from Savannah College of Art and Design. She spent a year as a resident artist at Anderson Ranch in Aspen, where she assisted such artists as Keith Smith and Jerry Uelsmann. She has worked in marketing and as a photo editor for small publishing companies in Georgia and Colorado. She currently works in historical processes, digital imaging and book works, and exhibits them nationally.

Tom Williams, assistant professor of art history at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, is a graduate of the University of West Florida (BA, Art History), the State University of New York, Stony Brook (MA and PhD, Art History) and of the Whitney Independent Study Program. He has also taught at the School of the Visual Arts, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Vanderbilt University, and his writings have appeared in Art in America, Grey Room and other publications.

41 A Kiwanis Arts and Music Festival

Presented by Tullahoma Art Council at Downtown Tullahoma

Canadian country-rocker Dallas Smith will headline this year’s 41A Music and Arts Festival, set for the streets of downtown Tullahoma, Sept. 26 and 27, the Highland Rim Kiwanis Club announced yesterday.

Smith, former front man of international alt-rock band Default, brings the flavor of his rock background to his energetic country brand on his first American single, “Tippin’ Point,” written by Florida Georgia Line’s country pop duo Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.

Currently touring with Florida Georgia Line, Smith is scheduled to play on Friday, Sept. 26, following country songwriter Logan Mize, whose single “Used Up,” was recently a “Highway Find” on the popular Sirius XM satellite radio country music channel The Highway.

Featured on the CW series “Hart of Dixie” and on a nationally televised cotton commercial alongside Hayden Panettiere, Mize has toured with Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and Blake Shelton among others.

[Dallas Smith]

Dallas Smith

Fiddle-shredding Natalie Stovall, recently named one of the “next women of country” by Country Music Television, returns to the 41A Festival this year as the Saturday headliner.  Her band, Natalie Stovall and the Drive, released the chart climbing single “Baby Come On With It” in January.

Stovall will follow country singer-songwriter Glen Templeton, whose single “Ball Cap,” recently topped the weekly countdown on The Highway.

Local and regional acts will also take the stage this year, with performances from the classic country Johnny Collier Band, folk rocker Rob Aldridge and rock cover band Phat Tuesday, as well as return appearances from Shelbyville singer-songwriter Kacey Smith and rock party band Granny Low.

Catherine Murray’s musical tribute to Michael Jackson will also make a return performance.

Now in its fifth year, the 41A Music and Arts Festival is a significant source of fundraising for the Highland Rim Kiwanis Club, which uses the proceeds to support children’s charities in the area.

With donations collected in the first four years, the club has been able to contribute more than $20,000 to charities such as Tullahoma Day Care, 5Loaves4Kids, Haven of Hope and Coffee County Imagination Library.

The Highland Rim Kiwanis Club meets at noon each Thursday at Lakewood Golf and Country Club.

Anyone interested in getting involved with the festival or with the Kiwanis mission to “change the world, one child and one community at a time,” is invited to join.

It starts with a growing canon of infectious songs (the band’s fourth album is forthcoming), and explodes out from there into a million creative endeavors: their videos are art projects that the whole world sees; their live shows are immersive and surprising; their free time is invested in apps and op-eds and a host of other experiments that all fall under fun, ambitious, or just really cool to try.

Searching in the Presence of Light - Sergio Gomez

Presented by Mohsenin Galleries at Mohsenin Galleries

The exhibition Searching In The Presence of Light will feature a selection of painting works by Sergio Gomez from the last five years. The title refers to Sergio Gomez’s interest in the use of light as a metaphor for truth. Light, as an experience, touches all aspects of our lives from the moment we are born to the moment we leave this life. Sergio Gomez’s life-size works are often referred as doors of passage to the other side. They invite the viewer to explore the multifaceted experiences of the human condition. In his most recent paintings, Gomez searches for the presence of light within the human spirit and reinterprets its powerful influence. The artist will attend an opening event on August 9.

Graham will also conduct a master class from noon-2 p.m. Sunday, September 28, also in Ingram Hall. Participation in the class is limited to Blair School students by audition, but the public is welcome to attend.

You'll hear the great tonal variety and responsive nature of the Steinway piano and how it meets the rigorous demands of the world's finest pianists!

A Q&A with the artist and meet-n-greet will follow!

RSVP is requested.

 


The purpose of the Steinway Classics for Children Series is to give listeners of today an opportunity to hear piano pieces that have withstood the test of time and have inspired audiences throughout the world. Dr. DeVan feels strongly that it is the duty of an artist to pass on the experience of hearing great works of music in a live setting. We all know that it is easy to order a CD and listen to it in the comfort of our home. While this can be a most satisfying experience, there is really nothing like a live performance to inspire us.
Sitting close to the performer gives a performance another perspective: we can literally feel the vibrations of the piano strings and we can observe the performer’s gestures and feel his or her commitment to the performance. A live performance also gives us one-on-one access to the many different tone colors that the piano can produce.

The children of this generation should have the pleasure of an introduction to the famous works for the piano, along with some helpful remarks about the music they are hearing. Dr. DeVan hopes that all the members of the audience will share the experience of hearing and enjoying the piano music that he performs. He believes that the most important thing for the children is to have access to live performances and also to have the opportunity to meet the performer.

We are happy to provide this type of experience at Steinway Piano Gallery and look forward to meeting many children for the first time. This is also the type of experience that an entire family can enjoy together, including the grandparents.
Come and be a part of a live piano performance. The program will last about forty-five minutes.

Marc Broussard with Andy Suzuki and Mingo Fishtrap

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father’s band.  Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.

Marc’s song “Home” was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage.  His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies.  The timeless, soulful nature of Marc’s vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Marc inked a deal with Vanguard records in July 2012.  He released an LP in early 2013 and tours extensively.

Bonobo (DJ Set)

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Simon Green, AKA Bonobo, is an artist very much at the peak of his significant powers. His 2010 album ‘Black Sands’ was the high watermark of his career to date; a masterful record, marrying Green’s inimitable melodic genius to cutting edge electronics, bass and drums.

Black Sands went on to sell over 160,000 copies worldwide, and since its release, Bonobo has toured the world with his live band, wowing audiences of thousands at a time with the hypnotic, extended live versions of the album’s tracks. He amassed more than 50 million recorded plays on LastFM and over 300,000 likes on Facebook.

All this comes as the result of over ten years hard work, and five albums that have honed Green’s skills. A born musician, Green – like many artists – expresses himself most articulately via his music. The result is that his work is always keenly felt, and always feels imperative. There are no wasted moments, and always myriad great ones.

It’s tempting to relate Green’s yearning, emotive aesthetic to his upbringing in rural Hampshire. His move to Brighton is also an influence; his skill at drum programming perhaps harking back to his days DJing and producing in the small, musically fertile town. Under the initial guidance of Tru Thoughts’ Rob Luis and at nights such as Phonic:hoop, Bonobo found an early education in music.

His first album – 2000’s ‘Animal Magic’ – was released via Tru Thoughts before being picked up by Ninja Tune. It announced him as a serious talent; able to bring a true musician’s edge to electronic music, with all the freedom that skill allowed. His subsequent albums for Ninja, Dial M for Monkey and Days to Come, developed his sensibility, won him fans across the globe, and saw him develop his live show into a mesmeric re-working of his records.

He also worked hard as a DJ, a part of Green’s arsenal that perhaps truly came into its own at the same time as Black Sands was generally welcomed as his best album to date. 2012 saw Green take the uptempo, club re-edits of Black Sands from a seminal Boiler Room performance in London to dance floors across the world, and unveil a new light show that further enhanced the impact of these stunning songs. A remix album was released featuring reworkings by fans and peers such as Machinedrum, Floating Points, Mark Pitchard, Lapalux and Falty DL.

Later the same year, he finally settled down in his New York studio to write his fifth studio album. Now, in 2013, he stands ready to take things up yet another notch. The North Borders is another long stride forward – both a natural evolution and a continuation of the electronic palette of Black Sands. Thematic, resonant, addictive and perfectly formed, it’s a thrillingly coherent statement piece. With vocal features from no less than Erykah Badu, as well as Grey Reverend (Cinematic Orchestra) and Cornelia (Portico Quartet) it’s another finely balanced body of work, leaving room for the beautiful, rich productions themselves to breathe and shine.

Bonobo has a long history of unearthing new talent (Andreya Triana, Bjaika) and The North Borders sees him do so once again. The startling vocals of new collaborator Szjerdine are sprinkled across the North Borders, and Green has yet again found the perfect voice to enhance where he’s at.

With a huge run of international tour dates set to commence shortly after the album’s Spring release date, plus a host of weighty press and radio campaigns and a bleeding edge online campaign, 2013 looks set to be Simon Green’s year, which is very good news for the rest of us, too.

Killer Beaz

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Truett S Beasley, Jr., ("Thanks, Dad!") got his start in show business playing blues guitar in Jackson, Mississippi. "Beaz, as his friends call him, played lead guitar. One night, while playing a solo, someone shouted. "That was killer, Beaz!" The name stuck. So, naturally, when he made the jump to comedy, he carried the name with him. And what a jump it was! Using intense desire and a belief that it was "meant to be" as a springboard, Beaz started out at the best place possible ... the bottom!

Biker bars, pool halls, country music places, and blues rooms all make up a string of one night stands throughout the Delta, he fondly called "The Chitlin Circuit". During his 317 performances in these trenches, Beaz’s "killer" stage presence was quite obvious. In 1984, Beaz traveled to Chicago on a business trip. Upon his arrival he heard about ZANIES Comedy Showplace, he skipped his meeting that evening and headed to check it out. Jay Leno was the headlining act that evening, and the first comedian Beaz had ever seen perform live. While Leno’s performance was awesome, Beaz was equally thrilled to discover that there were places that people came for the sole purpose of seeing stand-up comedy.Beaz calls the show, "The feel good show of the season!" Maybe that is why Rolling Stone Magazine says of the show, "Beaz is ‘Killer’!" or why USA Today says he is a "Star rising in the South". With the release of the Killer Beaz album, "Save Up!", and an upcoming video release in the Fall of 2004, Beaz continues to use his successful formula of high energy with universal appeal as one of the nations top comics touring theatres and large clubs throughout the country. "Save Up!" Find out more about this "King of Comedy!" as he is hailed by the Clarion-Ledger at www.killerbeaz.com , and don’t miss an opportunity to catch "The Best Buzz in Town"...you’ll be stung for life!!!

Faculty Recital: Jeremy Wilson, trombone, and Mark Wait, piano

Presented by Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University - Blair School of Music - Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

For this concert, trombonist Jeremy Wilson had to dig deep. As he explains it, much of the recital repertoire for trombone is actually transcriptions of orchestra parts or material originally written for other instruments. The desire to perform a program of music specifically written for trombone and piano required a much deeper dive into the literature, which has turned up an unusual evening of musical surprises. We can’t wait to hear what these virtuoso performers have turned up!

Penny Rae CD Release Party

at Main Street Music

Local faves Penny Rae are at it again! Join us in celebrating the release of their second album!

From Patti Griffin and Journey to Ben Folds Five and Radiohead, Penny Rae draws on a wide range of... musical influences making their sound difficult to define. In an effort to define the band's sound, Andrew said "Think acoustic-based, indie singer-songwriter, with a twist of country and minimal hipster. And coffee. Lots of coffee. I will not start wearing unnecessary scarves."

While the musical style may be difficult to define, the objective is not. According to Randi, "We just want to have fun playing music and sharing the songs we've written with anyone who wants to hear them." Simple enough.

Hurry folks, tickets are selling fast!

Dog the Bounty Hunter

Presented by Tennessee Performing Arts Center, TPAC at TPAC - James K. Polk Theater

Duane Dog Chapman, star of CMT's Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and A&E's Dog the Bounty Hunter will be appearing live at the Polk Theater September 28th.

Considered one of the greatest bounty hunters in the world by many, this ex-con turned icon could easily be dubbed
"The King of The Comebacks." Credited with more than 10,000 captures throughout the course of his illustrious 40-year bounty hunting career, Dog continues to prove that people really do change.

Dog is the author of two best-selling books -- Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given and his memoir You Can Run But You Can't Hide. The memoir debuted on the New York Times best-seller list in the No. 1 position where it remained for several weeks. It garnered great reviews for his candid honesty and detailed personal accounts of overcoming hardships and bettering oneself. When he's not bounty hunting, Dog tours the country giving motivational speeches to crowds by the thousands and participates in the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He is the charity's most requested celebrity and is the proud father of 12 children and 14 grandchildren.

Dog's career as a bounty hunter gained national attention after catching infamous fugitive and Max Factor Cosmetics heir Andrew Luster who was wanted on 87 counts of rape. The infamy of Luster's capture soon led to many high profile television appearances and later, the long-running reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Now, having made bounty hunting his life's work for close to four decades, Dog, his wife and business partner Beth and son, Leland, are back in their new series for CMT, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, as they continue their tireless efforts in bringing the bad guys to justice and encouraging them to turn their lives around.

Medea

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Flatt Amphitheatre

This modern adaptation of Euripides' "Medea" retells the classical Greek myth of the title character, a foreign yet powerful enchantress, and her husband Jason, a renowned war hero. The play picks up after their escape to a new country since Medea is wanted in her own country for treason against the royal family. Even though the pair have children together, Jason's financial and political desires push him to pursue a new wife, leaving Medea in danger of both losing her family and exile. As this stirring play unfolds, Medea's desperation leads to an unfathomable revenge. First produced in 431 B.C., "Medea" features themes we still face today, including the value of communication, the importance of forgiveness, and the downfall of vengeance. Advisory: Contains adult content and themes.

Neulore With Justin Kalk Orchestra

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Animal Evolve, NEULORE’s Chop Shop/Island Records debut, is the soundtrack for an epic action movie that doesn’t exist.

“Cinema has always affected the way we think,” says Adam Agin, one half of the modern folk duo. “We have songs that sound like battlefield scenes. We have songs that sound like you’re running wild in an open field. We’re huge fans of movies, so it’s natural for us to dream up some sort of visual scene... and then figure out how that scene would sound.”

Don’t let the ‘folk’ tag fool you. Anchored by tribal drums and electric guitars, NEULORE’s songs are better suited for the arena than the campfire. The music swells and swoons, with tense verses that break into epic, open-armed choruses. It’s a sound that tells a story, much like classic folk music... but it does so with gang vocals, synthesizers and the anthemic sweep of rock & roll.

The band formed in 2009, when Agin crossed paths with guitarist William T. Cook in Nashville. Surrounded by the rootsy twang of country singers and Americana bands, the two began whipping up a different sound, one that relied heavily on mood, melody and motion pictures. They didn’t just write songs. They created complex backstories for each tune, digging deep into their collective imagination and conjuring up fictional characters, plot lines and landscapes. Those backstories helped inspire the band’s symbolic clothing and stage setup, too, transforming Neulore’s concerts from routine gigs into actual experiences.

When it came time to record a full-length album, Agin and Cook turned to Konrad Snyder, the Nashville-based producer behind albums by Kopecky Family Band and Feather & Belle. They wanted the record to revolve around a central theme: man’s struggle between human decency and animalistic savagery. It’s a classic struggle, often illustrated with an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. Agin and Cook visualized it as an all-out war, though, with both sides dueling to death.

“The whole record is a quest for humanity,” says Cook. “We’d take a song and say, ‘What scene is this song in? What are the visuals?’ Then we’d decide how aggressive the guitar needed to sound, or what the rhythm should be, just to get the emotion in that scene across. We would create these alternate realities, and then we’d make them real.”

With “Shadow of a Man,” the album’s lead single, receiving airplay on nationwide radio stations (as well as TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, which premiered the song in 2013), NEULORE is getting ready to take the battlefield. The band’s name -- a combination of the German prefix “neu,” meaning “new,” and the latter half of “folklore” -- says it all. This is a new story, a new tradition... and Animal Evolve is the first chapter.

Broken Bells with Hamilton Leithauser

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Broken Bells, the musical partnership comprised of Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer, are set to play in concert at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium September 29.

Fate would strike when Burton, a long-time admirer of The Shins, met Mercer backstage when the two happened to be performing at the same music festival. From then on, there was no looking back. The creative cogs had already begun grinding away.

While Burton has had his pick of collaborators in musical forays, he has found his ultimate writing partner in James Mercer. Mercer has helped unlock a new musical world for both himself and Burton as Broken Bells. The result has been the creation of cosmic and forceful music from a duo with mutual respect and shared talents. It’s not The Shins. It’s not Danger Mouse. It’s Broken Bells.

The TIME JUMPERS are an award winning Western Swing band from Nashville, Tennessee, with two awards from the Association of Western Artists, one from the Western Music Association and two Grammy nominations! This group of Nashville's studio elite has evolved from casual jam sessions at the Grand Ole Opry to performing on the main stage, and becoming THE Monday night destination in Nashville. Their individual recording and performing credits cover virtually the entire history of country music, ranging from Slim Whitman to Carrie Underwood, and their members have recorded extensively with artists in other genres as well, from Barbra Streisand to Megadeth. Their combination of tight arrangements, soulful singers, brilliant soloists, and an irresistibly swinging rhythm section have packed their weekly performances at Nashville's legendary Station Inn for close to ten years, drawing not only their peers, such as fellow recording musicians Glen Worf, Brent Mason, Reggie Young, Bob Moore and countless others, but an amazingly diverse array of stars, including Jimmy Dean, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jimmy Buffet, Reba McEntire, Robert Plant, BJ Thomas, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Luna Halo, Norah Jones, John Rich, Robben Ford, Ronnie Dunn, Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap and Kelly Clarkson. The list goes on and on!

Zeitgeist presents Vesna Pavlovic: Illuminated Archive

Presented by Zeitgeist Gallery at Zeitgeist Gallery

Using documentary materials sourced from The Phillips Collection's library and archives, Vesna Pavlovic examines the museum's history of exhibition and display in a new installation.

 

Illuminated Archive showcases a 20-foot translucent curtain printed with digitally manipulated images and two related c-prints that explore the idea of transparency, both photographic and historic. The installation is part of the Phillips's ongoing Intersections series, a project highlighting contemporary art and artists in conversation with the museum's permanent collection and archives.

Vesna Pavlovic holds an MFA degree in visual arts from Columbia University in New York. She has exhibited widely,  including solo shows at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, the Museum of History of Yugoslavia, the Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, and the Crocker Art Museum  in Sacramento. Her work is included in major private and public art collections, including The Phillips Collection and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. She currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee, and teaches photography and digital media at Vanderbilt University.

 

ABOUT THE PHILLIPS COLLECTION

Stressing the continuity between art of the past and present, it offers a strikingly original and experimental approach to Modem art by combining works of different nationalities and periods in displays that change frequently.

Theory Of A Deadman

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Honesty is always the best policy. Theory of a Deadman adheres to that age old adage on their fourth album for Roadrunner/604 Records, The Truth Is…


The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. “Lowlife," is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. Meanwhile, "The Bitch Came Back" gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. "Hurricane" stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then there's "Head Above Water," which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms. Theory of a Deadman—Tyler Connolly [Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar], David Brenner [Rhythm Guitar], Dean Back [Bass], Joey Dandeneau [Drums]—are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, like it or not.


For The Truth Is…, Theory of a Deadman preserved the sound that fans worldwide have grown to love on Scars

Hozier w/ James Bay

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

What are the Twenty First Century Blues? And who shall we find to sing them?

From trivial first world problems to the seismic shifts in geopolitics, the modern Blues resonate down the years with the same eternal themes – loss, loneliness, longing and regret. New wine in vintage casks.

Born on St. Patrick's Day and hailing from County Wicklow, Hozier was raised on the building blocks of popular music: rhythm and blues, soul, jazz and the deep dark stuff stretching from Chicago to the Delta. He joined his first band when he was 15 years old, fronting a soul band with some older heads. Taught himself to play guitar and piano, and went to Trinity College to study music. Whilst there, he bagged a seat on the flight deck of the symphonic B-52 that is the Trinity Orchestra, fronting their missions into the world of classic rock.

However, four years looked like a long stretch, particularly when the goal was to write, record and perform his own music; so Hozier dropped out to concentrate his talents on the creative process full time. He tried out with a few different producers in various studios, experimented with genres; but never felt happy with the results. Home is where the art is, and a simple studio, set up in the attic proved to be the crucible where Hozier would forge a musical identity he could call his own. A place where Stevie Wonder and Billie Holiday are revered alongside James Joyce and Oscar Wilde.

He says: “Listen to any song, from any era; and you're looking through a keyhole into the artist's world as seen through their eyes. Art is, in it's simplest form, the reproduction of the world around us. All artists reproduce their vision of the world, and in doing so create a document that reflects the times they live in”. Which brings us back to the Twenty First Century Blues, and Hozier's unique, poetic evocations.

Hozier's first release is a 4 track EP. 'Take Me To Church' (the lead track) and 'Angel Of Small Death' reflect the gospel – soul gumbo at the heart of his music; 'Like Real People Do' is an Arcadian acoustic adventure and 'Cherry Wine' a raw emotional discourse, recorded live at 6am on an abandoned hotel rooftop; with accompaniment from the dawn chorus. Hozier played all the instruments (Fiachra Kinder helped out on drums), sang all the parts and recorded at home. Rob Kirwan (Depeche Mode, PJ Harvey) mixed the tracks in Dublin.

Civil War Lecture Series: Tennessee Women in the Civil War

Presented by Belmont Mansion at Belmont Mansion

All lectures will be held at 5:30 p.m. on the following Tuesdays---September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30thThe mansion played an important role as the house and grounds were occupied by Union General Thomas J. Wood and his troops for two weeks prior to the Battle of Nashville fought on December 15 & 16, 1864. Primary source research indicates one of the rooms in the mansion was used as a chapel for the officers and soldiers. The lecture series will shed light on the intriguing history of Belmont Mansion during this watershed event in American history.

On Tuesday, September 30th Antoinette van Zelm and Brenda Jackson-Abernathy will discuss Tennessee women and their roles during the Civil War.

Dr. van Zelm will discuss the recently published Tennessee Women in the Civil War. She served as editor of the compilation of essays. The book is Volume 8 of Tennessee in the Civil War: The Best of the Tennessee Historical Quarterly, a series published by the Tennessee Historical Society. Edited by Tennessee State Historian Carroll Van West, the series is sponsored in part by the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area and the Tennessee Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission. The compilation of eleven articles chronicle Tennessee women’s experiences before, during, and after the war. First-hand accounts, biographical sketches, in-depth analyses, and a set of illustrations tell the tale of women’s varied and dramatic encounters with the war and its stunning consequences.

Dr. Jackson-Abernathy will discuss Adelicia Acklen and her experiences during the Civil War and the days leading up to the Battle of Nashville as her home was occupied by Union General Thomas J. Wood.

Dr. van Zelm is the Programs Manager for the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University and also works on Civil War-related materials for the Teaching with Primary Sources-Middle Tennessee State University program. She received her Ph.D. in American History from the College of William & Mary, completing her dissertation on the transition from slavery to freedom among women in Virginia during and after the Civil War. She is active in the Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH) and serves as book review editor for H-SAWH. She has written about the transition from slavery to freedom in both Tennessee and Virginia in several publications and is now researching Tennessee women’s involvement in the Woman’s Relief Corps, the women’s auxiliary of the Grand Army of the Republic.

The Best of Jethro Tull performed by Ian Anderson featuring the new album Homo Erraticus

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Legendary prog-rock pioneer Ian Anderson will be releasing a new studio album Homo Erraticus on April 15 on his own Calliandra Records. The album continues with the story of Anderson's favorite enfant terrible Gerald Bostock, from Thick As A Brick (1972) and Thick As A Brick 2 (2012)

Ian and his band (guitarist Florian Opahle, bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O'Hara and drummer Scott Hammond) will stop at the Ryman on Wednesday, October 1, as part of this new tour where Homo Erraticus will be performed in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics updated with video and theatrics.

Ian Anderson recently won The Prog God Award from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. There is no one who has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.

Fronting seminal Prog outfit Jethro Tull and performing simply under his own name, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music.  With over 60 million albums sold in its career, Tull has been characterized by Anderson’s trademark acoustic textures created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments. In many recent shows, Anderson has played with orchestras, string quartets and featured soloists. His eclectic acoustic performances are also a hit with fans of the progressive genre.

J Mascis w/ Kevin Drew

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

t makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis. Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I saw him live. It was in New York City. I don't remember when or where, but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too. The second time was also in New York, at a Mexican restaurant in the East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to). Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival though a friend who works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J. Sounds unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep staring at that picture until August 26th. That's when J's new acoustic album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features appearances by Ken Maiuri, Pall Jenkins , Mark Mulcahy, and Chan Marshall. Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to play on it, too.

The Music City Medium Cindy Kaza with Special Guest Lisa Williams

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium based out of Nashville, TN. She has been extremely intuitive since very, early childhood but had her first memorable experience with a spirt at age 10. Days after losing an elementary school friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing right next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience. She convinced herself it was just a dream. It wasn’t until her early 20′s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multifaceted abilities as a psychic medium. Cindy is clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling) . She works as an evidential medium. Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter.
This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit. Cindy has trained thoroughly through the United States and also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. There is no right or wrong way to grieve the loss of a loved one. Each person experiences the loss of a loved one in his/her own way. Cindy believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess. Everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!

About Special Guest LISA WILLIAMS
Lisa Williams is a world-renowned medium and clairvoyant with an amazing ability to communicate with those who have passed on to the other side.
Born in England, Lisa was discovered by Merv Griffin and introduced to audiences through two seasons of her own hit show, Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead, along with Voices from the Other Side and Lisa Williams Live. All of these shows are now airing around the world. She has also appeared on Anderson Cooper, Oprah, The Ricki Lake Show, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Larry King Live and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
As well as performing in front of large live audiences worldwide, Lisa also offers workshops and courses in mediumship, developing psychic ability, intuition and meditation. She has recently launched the Los Angeles based Lisa Williams International School of Spiritual Development (LWISSD) through which she delivers her classes with her own unique and very hands-on method of teaching. Through the school, Lisa offers access to her personally trained and certified mediums and psychics who are part of the LWISSD Directory.
Lisa hosts her own weekly radio show on blogtalkradio.com, and writes regularly about her life and spiritual teachings on her website lisawilliams.com, where she interacts with the public as well as her site members. She is an accomplished author of books on mediumship and spirituality, including Survival of the Soul and Life Among the Dead, as well as her new book on mediumship for beginners, I Speak to Dead People, Can You?, available from May 2014.

Skrillex

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

Skrillex will perform on September 30 with Tokimonsta, Tchami, and Alesia.
Skrillex will perform on October 1 with Kaytrandada, Branchez, and David Heartbreak.

In a cluttered home studio in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, mere blocks from where he wrote “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites”, the song that sold millions of copies and helped instigate one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory, the galvanizing totem of a youth movement daps at a midi controller, ceaselessly cuing the same snare sound over and over and over and over, for literally hours. Literally. Hours.

Skrillex has a lot of thank yous. At around the one-minute mark of his first Grammy acceptance speech in 2012, iPhone in hand, scrolling interminably down a list, it became clear that Skrillex doesn’t feel isolated from his peers. It’s always been a defining trait of his character, this aptitude at building things with others. It’s since gone on to characterize, color, and define his career, too. Whether with his label, OWSLA, his numerous media projects, the NEST online community or the building in downtown LA he’s currently converting into a state-of-the art creative space, Skrillex knows there’s power in numbers. Skrillex quite simply loves to make things.

St. Lucia with Joywave

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Even in the urban wilds of Brooklyn, there may be no one else like Jean-Philip Grobler, aka St. Lucia. Originally from Johannesberg, St. Lucia grew up performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. When the choir wasn't traveling - they toured Japan, Australia, Europe and more - they stayed in an enclave tucked in the South African mountains, learning everything from Bach to minimalist opera.

A young musician could hardly find better training. But musically, St Lucia's heart lay elsewhere, and South Africa was full of other rhythms. "My mom says I used to sing along to Michael Jackson," he says - an ordinary anecdote, until he adds, "when I was an infant." As a young teenager, he started to feel that he'd had his fill of classical, and it felt like an epiphany when he discovered the direct emotionality of pop. Eventually, he left the creative "small pond" of South Africa for England, where he spent three years studying music in Liverpool.

St. Lucia's journey ended - as so many journeys do - in New York City, where he started working on the tracks that would ultimately turn into his self titled debut release on Neon Gold. The atmospheric quality of St. Lucia's electronic pop is powerful, with the musician's global travels and history of secret hideaways effortlessly passed onto the audience through his dreamy, shimmering synths.

Neon Gold will release St Lucia's debut album later this year. Formerly a singles-only label that launched releases Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, The Naked & Famous and helped launch the careers of countless others.

Foxygen with Dub Thompson

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Foxygen is the bi-coastal songwriting duo of Sam France (vocals, Olympia, Wash., 22 years old) and Jonathan Rado (guitar/keyboards, NYC, 22). They are the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need. They create a sometimes-impressionistic, sometimes-hyper-real portrait of sounds from specific places and times. They bring the manic, freewheeling qualities of an artist like Ariel Pink to those aforementioned influences to make for one of the most refreshing listens of the year. They are the real deal and total savants. Their albums are love letters to vinyl collections.

Wilson Phillips

Presented by Wildhorse Saloon at Wildhorse Saloon

Join us for live music with Wilson Phillips with special guest Brynn Elliot.

The 1990 release of the eponymous Wilson Phillips album heralded the emergence of a bright new pop vocal trio, and one unique in its heritage. Sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson are the daughters of The Beach Boys' genius Brian Wilson, while Chynna Phillips is the daughter of The Mamas & The Papas’ John and Michelle Phillips. Together the gals produced a harmonic blend that did their parents proud while achieving their own chart-topping success.

2011 was a huge year for Wilson Phillips. They gained a lot of attention and some new fans when they appeared in the blockbuster hit film "Bridesmaids" in which they performed their stellar hit “Hold On.” Chynna Phillips added to her luster as a skilled dancer and endearing competitor on ABC’s "Dancing with the Stars", while Carnie Wilson increased her immense fan base as host of Karaoke USA and ...participant on Celebrity Wife Swap. A very busy year indeed, especially when the three ladies are happily married and have nine children between them – three for Chynna, two daughters and a son; Carnie has two daughters and Wendy has four sons.

This year the momentum continues for the trio with the release of Dedicated, a new Wilson Phillips studio album made up of covers by The Beach Boys and The Mamas and the Papas. This is an album that their fans had been dreaming about since the group's inception. It will be released by their label Sony Masterworks on April 3rd. Additionally this spring, the lifelong friends will star in Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, a TV Guide Network reality show documenting the group’s adventures in and out of the recording studio, and are planning to tour the U.S. and Canada in support of the new album.

Nashville Flipside's Americana Pie South IV

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians. Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them. It is also where one might often witness an impromptu jam session with legendary artists, players and writers.

Grand Ole Opry featuring The Henningsens, Gretchen Peters, Mel Tillis, Kellie Pickler and more to be added.

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: The Henningsens, Gretchen Peters, Mel Tillis, Kellie Pickler and more to be added.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show. Artists are posted to the Opry website as soon as appearances are confirmed (artists and schedule subject to change). Plan to check back often, as most times artists' appearances are not confirmed until one to two weeks prior to the show date.

All stainless steel, heated and air-conditioned cars provide you with the experience that the American traveling public had in the late 1940s and 1950s, pulled by classic EMD passenger diesel locomotives.

Also on the program is Leos Janacek’s First Quartet, the “Kreutzer Sonata,” which was written in a two-week period in 1923 and inspired by Tolstoy’s daring novella, which was banned in both Russia and the United States when it was first published; and Mendelssohn's quartet opus 44.1, an ardent and high-spirited work that the 29-year-old Mendelssohn worked on during his honeymoon in 1838.

The Flauntleroys ft. Alejandro Escovedo, Nick Tremulis, Ivan Julian and Linda Pitmon

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

“I can take a punch, I can take a swing,” sings Alejandro Escovedo on “Man of the World,” the opening salvo of Big Station, his new album on Fantasy Records. The two phrases well describe his 35 years as a musician and two decades as a solo artist, the sum of which attests to the redemptive power of rock’n’roll and the driving role that it has played in his life and art.

 A stylistic synthesist who Rolling Stone notes “is in his own genre,” Escovedo casts his widest musical net to date on Big Station. The title can infer two meanings: A transit junction where journeys converge and then head off to new destinations, and a potent radio signal with an open playlist that brims with diversity and adventurous imagination.

 The album begins with a blast of tongue-in-cheek bravado on “Man of the World” set to a shimmering meld of classic guitar rock and new wave bop. Themes of transition are the fulcrum for songs like the syncopated bounce of the title track and the ghostly march of “Sally Was A Cop,” which surveys the havoc wrought by Mexico’s drug cartels. A jazzy muted trumpet and saxophone weave through his rumination on love and determination on “Can’t Make Me Run.” Change, decay and Escovedo’s place in the world are explored in songs that touch down in the city where he has lived for decades, Austin, TX, as well as his nearby birthplace on, respectively, the Dylanesque “The Bottom of the World” and the dark-hued melodicism of “San Antonio Rain.”

Handmade & Bound Nashville

Presented by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film

The fourth annual edition of Handmade & Bound Nashville (H&BN), a two-day celebration of print, paper and book, will unfold Friday, October 3, and Saturday, October 4, at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. The free, family-friendly event–part book convention, part literary event and part art show–is presented by the Watkins Library and the Community Education department and features a gallery exhibition, film screening, marketplace with dozens of vendors and distributors, and demos and hands-on activities.

On Friday, October 3, the festival’s exhibition, Poetry and Prints, will open in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on campus with a reception from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

The gallery show takes its name from a series of community workshops to be presented this summer by Watkins Community Education, with assistance from the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The Poetry and Prints workshops, led by professional artists, poets and printmakers, will allow community members to produce handmade books inspired by the art of Wassily Kandinsky, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and the subject of an upcoming retrospective at the Frist (September 26, 2014 - January 2, 2015).

The H&BN exhibition, on view through October 17, will showcase handmade books created by workshop participants as well as those from local artists and creative professionals.

Handmade and Bound: Poetry and Prints is funded in part by an Arts Access grant from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission. Later on Friday, October 3, Watkins will welcome acclaimed zine author/publisher John Porcellino for the Nashville premiere of Root Hog or Die, a 2014 documentary about his life and work. Currently living in South Beloit, Illinois, the Chicago native has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics and graphic novels for more than 25 years; his self-published series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of alternative comics creators.

With equal parts Thoreau and Hüsker Dü, Porcellino’s comics showcase the “moments between moments” which make up the majority of our lives, but which many fail to notice. The title phrase is John Porcellino’s personal motto in regards to creating King-Cat: the saying about self-reliance refers to the colonial practice of releasing hogs into the wild to fend for themselves or starve.

“Root Hog or Die” (90 min., dir. Dan Stafford) will screen at 7:00pm, in the Watkins Theater, followed by a Q&A with Porcellino.

On Saturday, October 4, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, artists, indie publishers and distributors, and book aficionados will come together to sell, trade and buy handmade and affordable publications, printed matter and book-themed creations at the book arts marketplace. The day will also feature demonstrations and hands-on activities for children and adults, as well as food trucks.

Vendor registration is currently open via the event website handmadeboundnashville.com, Handmade & Bound Nashville on Facebook, or by contacting the Watkins Library at (615) 277-7427. Reservation deadline is September 22, 2014.

Marketplace tables are available to creators of artists’ books or other printed media; independent publishers of zines, mini-comics, chapbooks, etc.; small distributors of zines and other printed media; and producers of book arts, handmade journals, one-of-a-kind book objects, paper and book-themed jewelry, gifts and accessories, and sellers of book, art and printmaking materials.

The Handmade & Bound Nashville festival is an official, registered event of Artober, a broadly collaborative promotional initiative designed to highlight, inform and inspire the community’s participation in the wide range of arts activities offered in the Nashville area during the month of October (www.artobernashville.com).

Handmade & Bound Nashville, Vol. 4 is hosted by the Library at Watkins and Watkins Community Education and is partially funded by the William N. Rollins Fund for the Arts through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in Metro Center; free parking is available in the campus lot.

Cumberland Gallery presents Rock Paper, Scissors, and Wood

Presented by Cumberland Gallery at Cumberland Gallery

Cumberland Gallery presents artists Tom Pfannerstill, Johan Hagaman, Billy Renkl, and Kell Black in Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Wood. Works range from realist painting on sculpted wood to figurative concrete work to intricately cut paper. This exhibition is especially relevant to Southern art, as the artists hail from Tennessee and Kentucky. The works reflect a coupling of artistic vision with attention to detail and traditional materials and processes.

When Tom Pfannerstill encounters a discarded, smashed, dirty, lonely little bit of consumer ephemera on the street, he collects it and recreates its varied details in carved wood and paint. Placing the waste of human existence on the white walls of the gallery may seem a tad unconventional but a closer look at these carefully rendered pieces not only confounds us with their implicit accuracy but also surprises us with our own sentimentality over the refuse of our society. This leads to questions about the psychological comfort we find in consumer culture. Tom Pfannerstill has been awarded prestigious fellowships, including one from The Kentucky Arts Council in 2001. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is part of collections of the Flint Institute of Arts in Michigan, Bellarmine College in Kentucky, and the Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences in Indiana. He currently lives and works in Kentucky.

Billy Renkl’s chosen medium are snippets of didactic texts, diagrams, maps, and the candy colored surfaces of postcards from a bygone era. These collected bits and pieces allow for meaning and metaphor in their peculiar beauty and often accidental æsthetic. Of his collages Renkl states, “In many of these works my focus on information graphics is combined with my interest in the ways that abstraction has been used to mediate the natural world.” Billy Renkl grew up in Birmingham, AL attending Auburn University and the University of South Carolina. He currently teaches at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. Aside from his many solo exhibitions throughout the US, his work has been featured with SouthWest Airlines, How Magazine, Vanderbilt University, Klutz Inc., Strategy & Business, The River Styx, Poems and Plays, and Rigby Publishing.

Johan Hagaman’s intuitively formed figures gently confront us with the hybrid life of plant, woman, and object. The lovely, subdued hues of milk paint across the deceptively soft appearance of molded concrete speak quietly of dreamy figures floating in the air, suspended by vines and bursting with life. Hagaman says of these sculptures, “Identity is a recurring theme in my work. I’m interested in psychology - especially the psychology of seeing: of perceiving, of viewing things from different perspectives, of paying attention in a world fraught with distractions, of beholding wonder, of imagining; and how all these different ways of seeing determine how we shape and are shaped by our world.” Hagaman was born in Southern Indiana, graduating from Indiana University. Her work is exhibited in many galleries throughout the country, and is included in many public and private collections and museums such as the Tennessee State Museum and Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences. She is also the recipient of the Tennessee Individual Artist Fellowship for 2005. Johan lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee.

Kell Black’s subjects are made up of seemingly useless but beautiful things - dandelions, twigs, spiders, moths, and maple whirligigs – all iconic of Southern summers. Each of these fragments of nature are delicately rendered with scissors from a sheet of paper; edges curl and fray, popping up from their two dimensional surface in luscious mountains and valleys. Black says of his work, “A pencil can trace the most delicate of curves, but an artist wielding a scalpel or a knife must constantly make geometric compromises. Tight curves become a series of angular approximations. This leads the artists to realize that not only does nature abhor a vacuum; it also detests a straight line. Nature is nothing but one big curve, and curves are sexy. And really, if it isn’t sexy, it’s just not art.” Kell Black a professor at Austin Peay State University and has been featured in exhibitions at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Maryland Institute of Art and Customs House Museum. He is the recipient of NEA’s Southern Art Federations Individual Grant and has engineered a series of “build your own” books featuring paper cities.

Jerry Lee Lewis

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

In 1956, Lewis recorded his first single, a cover of Ray Price’s “Crazy Arms,” which did well locally.  Lewis also worked on some recording sessions with Carl Perkins.  While working at Sun, he and Perkins jammed with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.  This session by the “Million Dollar Quartet” was recorded at the time, but it was not released until much later.

In 1957, Lewis became a star with his unique piano-driven sound.  “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” became a hit on the pop, country and R&B charts.  By this time, Lewis had also developed some of his famous stage antics, such as playing standing up and even lighting the occasional piano on fire.  He had such energy and enthusiasm in his performances that he earned the nickname “The Killer” for the way he knocked out his audiences.

Lewis was on a roll with his next single, “Great Balls of Fire,” proving to be another big hit in December 1957.  The following March, Lewis struck again with “Breathless,” which made into the Top 10 of the pop charts.

Journeys in American Realism

Presented by Haynes Galleries at Haynes Galleries

To close the summer season Haynes Galleries presents “Journeys in American Realism,” a diverse exhibition consisting of nine vignette shows. Covering a range of styles and mediums, the vignettes will explore American Realism— past, present, and future— at its finest. The exhibition will be on view from September 5 to October 4 on the Music Row Roundabout. Each vignette will highlight an individual artist or survey a theme and represent the variety of Haynes Galleries’ distinguished roster of artists.

A series of black-and-white photographs by world-renowned portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh will reveal the inner character of some of the 20th century’s most famous figures, Georgia O’Keeffe, Albert Einstein, and Jacques Cousteau among them. His dark and moody photograph of Winston Churchill has become one of the most widely reproduced images in the history of photography.

American masters from the last two centuries are represented in The Real Masters. Names synonymous with American Realism—Sargent, Rockwell, Wyeth (both N.C. And Andrew)— will be on display next to the most notable names of the style today including Stephen Scott Young and Jamie Wyeth.

The glorious qualities of water are showcased in their own section. Views of flowing rivers, rushing waterfalls, and ocean surf are carefully yet expressively crafted in a variety of media. E.P. Lewandowski’s colored pencil views of cascading waterfalls will awe with their precision and vividness.

John Baeder is well known for his images of roadside diners, capturing a form of classic Americana that is rapidly disappearing. The vignette show of his work focuses on these loving tributes to gritty America. A Nashville resident, Baeder’s work has been featured in over 30 solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad.

The relationship between two of the most classic subjects in art, the female form and floral still lifes, are on display in their own vignette. The arrangement includes portraits by some of the most accomplished portraitists active today, including Ellen Cooper, Joyce Tenneson, and Burt Silverman, and still lifes by Krista Schoening and Karen Horn, who brings life and light to her images in a manner rarely seen in watercolors.

Philip Michelson’s photorealistic paintings make the everyday iconic. With painstaking technique and remarkable attention to detail, the mundane— a baseball, wine corks, a piece of bubble gum— become exalted. Philip’s paintings delight and awe, but they also change the way we look at things.

A collection of photographs of Andrew Wyeth by several photographers reveal the character of one of the most beloved American artists ever. Set amongst the landscapes he painted at different times during Wyeth’s life, the photos were taken by those who knew him best including his niece Victoria Browning Wyeth.

Plein air painting shines in a vignette show of small-scale landscapes. The challenges and rewards of painting amongst the elements are apparent in the picturesque views. Immediacy and motion are captured in every brushstroke.

A drawing portfolio closes the exhibition, with quick sketches and finished charcoal studies proving works do not need to be created with a brush to be awe-inspiring. 

A viewing of nine vignette shows becomes a journey through American Realism’s past and future at Haynes Galleries. The emotion and skill present in each work are the ties that bind a unique end-of-summer exhibition.

The X Housewife Portraits by Kit Kite

Presented by Julia Martin Gallery at Julia Martin Gallery

The X Housewife Portraits, by Kit Kite, is a self-portrait and installation series which has been a two year creative undertaking. The conceptual self-portrait series documents, through still images, the artist’s personal process of displacement within the house, identity and memory within the home and isolation. In the photographs, Kit is immersed in inanimate household objects, where the common domestic tool is depicted as the setting subject and she as the backdrop, within the self-portrait series.

The conceptual exhibition runs through the month of October. Along with the photographs, the show also includes Object X (film install) a black and white short film viewed within a one-room-house installation.

The X Reflects (A projected time lapse film) in which documents seven thousand self-portraits, taken over the span of two years by the artist in a beveled bathroom mirror.

Kit Kite is a self-taught visual artist and painter, encompassing installation and  performance art. Her work is often conceptual, with a strong personal narrative,  exploring the cultural psyche and the impacts of one’s social consciousness.

Women Who Dare to Believe

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Shamblin Theatre

Two veteran actresses bring to life 21 women from the Scriptures. Bonnie Keen, Dove Award-winner, Grammy Award-nominated recording artist, Studio Tenn founding member, and Nan Gurley, acclaimed actor at Studio Tenn and Tennessee Repertory Theater and NPT producer, portray the women God used to fulfill the covenant and bring in the Messiah.

With cutting-edge dialogue, original music and creative interaction with the audience, this 90-minute musical will inspire viewers with the stories of women who dared to believe and pushed against the pressures and culture of their day.

A scarlet thread of hope runs through the stories of Rahab, Tamar, Leah and Rachel, Deborah, Esther, Anna and Mary. Like women today, these women knew this was their hour, this was their moment. On a bare stage, two women using 20 feet of scarlet fabric leave audiences breathless with the stories of the blood of Jesus running through time from the Garden to the empty tomb.

Arnez J

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 To those in the know, Arnez J is quickly emerging as one of the hottest, most talked about comedic artists in the game. His raw energy, talent and comedic skill quickly landed Arnez the coveted hosting slot on BET’s longest-running comedy series “Comic View” for two seasons joining the ranks of hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer. Arnez J's charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. "J is a whirling dervish on stage--he runs, jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing them," wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Arnez J admits of himself “I've always expressed my things through mannerisms and facial expressions rather than speaking On his own at age 14, Arnez lied about his age to get a job at a gas station to work his way through school. With dreams to become a professional baseball player, Arnez began working as a flight attendant when those baseball plans fell through. It was while working as a flight attendant that Arnez discovered his comedic talent. He realized that he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew laughing and upon encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy. Arnez J got a chance to combine his ambitions as an athlete and performer: he was recruited by scouts for the famed Harlem Globetrotters basketball team. After several months, a knee injury ended his Globetrotters finally clearing the way for him to devote himself full time to standup comedy. An Atlanta native, Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia and quickly became one of "Hotlanta's" funniest newcomers. A finalist in the "Bay Area Black Comedy Competition," Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on Showtime's "Comedy Club Network." Numerous television appearances soon followed including appearances on "The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show," "Louie Anderson's Comedy Showcase," Comedy Central's "Make Me Laugh," NBC's "Friday Night Videos," “The Mo’nique Show”, Russell Simmons' "Def Comedy Jam," headlining Showtime’s recent "Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam," his own BET "Comic View Grandstand Hour Special", “Comedy Central Presents: Arnez J” and many others. Today, Arnez is widely considered one of the best working artists, with a polished and highly entertaining standup routine that keeps his audiences entertained without having to use profanity. In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out crowds at Arenas and other venues across the country.

An Evening with Asia

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

When they appeared in the early '80s, Asia seemed to be a holdover from the ‘70s, when supergroups and self-important progressive rockers reigned supreme. Featuring members of such seminal art rock bands as King Crimson (John Wetton), Emerson, Lake & Palmer (Carl Palmer), and Yes (Steve Howe), as well as Geoff Downes from the Buggles, Asia did feature stretches of indulgent instrumentals on their records. However, they also could be surprisingly poppy, and that is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album, Asia, and its hit single, "Heat of the Moment."

Alpha, their second album, also had a couple of hits ("Don't Cry" and “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes") but its follow-up, Astra, was a flop. The group disbanded in 1985, only to reunite in 1990 without John Wetton; John Payne took his place. After churning out a couple of new songs for a greatest-hits collection, the band hit the road, including two sold-out dates in front of 20,000 fans in Moscow, of all places.

Thereafter, they toured sporadically and released Aqua (1992), Aria (1994), Arena (1996), Aura (2001), and Silent Nation (2004). The band's lineup reverted to its original form featuring Wetton, Palmer, Howe, and Downes for Phoenix (2008) and Omega (2010). In 2012, the original Asia lineup returned with the studio album XXX, featuring the single "Face on the Bridge." The following year, Howe announced his amicable departure from the group to pursue other projects, and in 2014, Asia released the album Gravitas, featuring new guitarist Sam Coulson.

The Outsiders

Presented by Nashville Children's Theatre at Nashville Children's Theatre

The best selling young adult novel of all time comes to NCT's stage in a powerful, hard-edged production that has been three years in the making!  In this intense coming-of-age story set in 1965 Tulsa, Oklahoma, you're either a Greaser or a Soc. When these two gangs from opposite sides of the track clash, young Ponyboy will have to depend on his brothers and friends to survive.  Written by a teenager, about teenagers and for teenagers, S.E Hinton's explosive first novel has captured generations of adolescent readers and is just as relevant today as it was when it first burst on the scene almost 50 years ago.

NCT's Artistic Director Scot Copeland says, "Under the inspired direction of Jeff Church (in my opinion the most innovative theatrical director for teenage audiences in America) collaborating with NCT's amazing creative team, and featuring a powerhouse cast of Nashville's most exciting young actors, we are finally ready to rock Nashville with a production that will not soon be forgotten!"  Stay gold.

Paolo Nutini

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Just one listen to Paolo Nutini's magnificent third long-player Caustic Love reveals exactly why it was worth the wait. It's been five years since the towering success of its 2009 predecessor, Sunny Side Up, which like the 27-year-old Paisley-born singer's 2006 debut These Days, sold a staggering 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. Described by Q magazine as "a truly excellent modern soul album", it's a record that acknowledges the classic music of the past while fixing its eyes firmly on the future. There may be echoes of some of soul music's greats within the grooves of Caustic Love – Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, among others – but taken as a whole it's a masterful creation which proves Paolo to be very much his own man.

Grand Ole Opry featuring Jimmy Wayne, Cole Swindell, Restless Heart and more artists to be added.

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: Jimmy Wayne, Cole Swindell, Restless Heart and more artists to be added.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show. Artists are posted to the Opry website as soon as appearances are confirmed (artists and schedule subject to change).

Sam Smith

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

When he was 18 years old, Sam Smith wrote his first truthful song, a flashbulb moment for the brilliant blue-eyed soul singer. Three years later and the song has long since been discarded as a naive folly. Like all singer songwriters that are rich in emotion, knee-deep in their own small personal complications and dependent on their precociously youthful talent to engage with the world, Sam resolved never to write a song again that didn’t connect straight from the heart. The first set of results, delivered with breathtaking vocal depth and range, will be put to the litmus test of public opinion when his debut album drops in 2014.

TAKING BACK SUNDAY with frnkiero andthe cellabration

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Taking Back Sunday are a band who truly need no introduction. Since forming in Long Island in 1999, the group have sold millions of albums, evolved from a scrappy punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. That spirit of resilience and innovation is dripping all over the band's sixth full-length "Happiness Is" (which is also their first release for Hopeless Records). As you can guess from the title the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this band of mainstream misfits that's certain to endear them to fans both new and old. 

The group's second album since reviving the classic lineup of vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist/vocalist John Nolan, guitarist Eddie Reyes, bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Mark O'Connell was written over a two year period with no involvement from a record label for the first time since their legendary 2002 debut "Tell All Your Friends." "The last record [2011's 'Taking Back Sunday'] was us feeling each other out and learning how to work together again and on this one everybody was a little more comfortable and free to express themselves," Lazzara explains. "At this point in the game we all know each other's strengths and weaknesses so well that it has made writing music together a bit easier," O'Connell confirms. "Don't get me wrong, there are still arguments but we are older and wiser and with that comes less fighting." 

Co-produced by longtime collaborators Mike Sapone in Long Island and Marc Jacob Hudson in Michigan, and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, the album sees the band expanding their musical palette and stretching out sonically in ways they've never done before by utilizing each producer's strengths. "Recording with Marc was great because we've been working together for a decade on the road so we are so relaxed around him," Lazzara says, adding that the fact the studio was located in a remote wooded area in the Midwest helped free the band from external distractions during the recording process. "When it comes to Mike that's like our second home and it helped make those sessions feel so familiar since we actually recorded our very first demos there."

Citizen Cope - Clarence Greenwood Recordings 10th Anniversary Tour

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

 FULL BAND SHOW!

$1 per ticket sold will go to Turnaround Arts to purchase musical instruments for middle schoolers in Lame Deer, Montana—a community on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. Lame Deer is part of Turnaround Arts http://turnaroundarts.pcah.gov/ , a program of President Obama’s President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities that is using arts education to help students succeed.

Cope’s musical education was catch-as-catch can. Folk tales—whether through William Faulkner or Big Bill Broonzy—shaped his sensitivity. A few college courses at Texas Tech alternately bored and excited him. In the Austin of the eighties, he took sound classes and found himself fooling with a primitive four-track setup. Turntables intrigued him. He heard hip hop as inspired invention. For years, he got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs that only later would be shaped into songs.

MEWITHOUTYOU Catch For Us The Foxes 10 Year Anniversary Tour with special guests The Appleseed Cast & more!

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Those who have followed mewithoutYou’s music in recent years will likely see their new, self-released Ten Stories as a return to old form. Their previous record, It’s All Crazy!, etc. had been a drastic and intentional departure. Aaron Weiss’ manic, unorthodox hollering was nowhere to be found, deliberately giving way to a more conventional melodic vocal approach. The explosive, schizophrenic drumming and swarthy, tempestuous low end (Rickie Mazzotta and Greg Jehanian, respectively) were accordingly subdued, relegated largely to keeping basic time. Chris Kleinberg had jumped ship for med school, leaving Mike Weiss reluctantly alone on electric guitar, feeling like a session player embellishing his little brother’s folk songs, no longer part of a coherent unit.

In short, due largely to their singer’s creative wanderlust, the band had entirely forsaken whatever they’d become; in an effort to spurn the familiar, they had grown unrecognizable, alienating no shortage of fans in the process. Those fans, and whoever has come to miss what was most distinct about mewithoutYou, will welcome Ten Stories as the rightful follow-up to their 2006 release, Brother/Sister, and 2004’s Catch for Us the Foxes. To be sure, the band hasn’t altogether renounced the psychedelic-rustic-pop elements of It’s All Crazy!; rather, they have renounced the scrupulous control inherent to its renunciation. Simply put, they seem to have let go of the steering wheel, and are back to writing music, well, ‘naturally.’

Note: This class is part of the Lifelong Learning Travel Series and is paired with an October 10-16 bus tour of New England. Click here for details of the complete trip and class.

 On January 18, 2012, The Gaslight Anthem piled into their old tour van and headed across the New Jersey state line for a 14 hour road trip to Nashville on their own quest for the truth. Their destination was 2806 Azalea Place, Nashville, Blackbird Studio, where the New Brunswick quartet had booked five weeks recording time with producer Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, AC/DC). Their mission: to reconnect with rock ‘n’ roll in its most feral, pure, stripped-raw form.

tUnE-yArDs

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Merrill Garbus has performed as tUnE-yArDs since 2009, and that band name has always been synonymous with forward movement—whether because of her explosive performance style or the always-surprising way in which her songs unfold. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called "a confident do-it-yourselfer's opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter," Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring. In 2011, tUnE-yArDs released its second album, w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where Garbus and bassist Nate Brenner accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice's 2011 Pazz and Jop poll), performed in front of increasing numbers of rapturous crowds around the world, and collaborated with the likes of Yoko Ono and ?uestlove. It was a thrilling ride, but it was one that needed a little bit of recovery afterward.

Evening with Storytellers featuring Eric Jacobson and Bryan Lane

Presented by Williamson County Library Foundation at Williamson County Public Library

As part of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, the library will host An Evening with Storytellers, featuring Eric Jacobson and Bryan Lane. The presentation will highlight important aspects of the battle as well as the people involved, and the focus will be on why this one battle was so important to the outcome of the war and to the future of our town of Franklin. Eric Jacobson is the Chief Executive Officer and Historian with the Battle of Franklin Trust, and has published several books about the impact of the Civil War in this area. The library has helped Bryan Lane publish his recent book on General Adams, one of the five generals killed during the battle. Both authors will share why this battle mattered, in the past, in the present day, and in our town's future. Doors open at 6:00 for wine and appetizers, and the program begins at 6:30 on Thursday, October 9, at the main branch of the Williamson County Library at 1314 Columbia Avenue. The evening is sponsored by the Library Foundation, which exists to give support for the library above and beyond what county money can provide. The Foundation began in 1948 and has had varying levels of activity during that time. For the past several years their focus has been supporting children's programs, funding the summer reading program and other events and activities. The program will also offer an overview of the many classes, events, and activities that YOUR library has to offer to the community.

Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show.

Casting Crowns

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

In the past year, Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.

The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”

Signature Series: Blakemore Trio

Presented by Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University - Blair School of Music - Ingram Hall

Amy Dorfman, piano, Carolyn Huebl, violin, Felix Wang, cello

Goethe described chamber music as “(three) rational people conversing.” The Blakemore Trio pays homage to Franz Joseph Haydn, heralded as the creator of modern chamber music, opening its program with one of his delightful chamber music gems. A set of Bagatelles by Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian follows. Mansurian’s writing captures the musical traditions of his country, combining influences of ancient chant and modern forms. The evening then turns to Eastern-European folk music, with a piano trio by Czech composer Bedrich Smetana. Written in 1855, Smetana dedicates this towering tribute to the memory of his daughter, who succumbed to scarlet fever when she was four years old.

Presented with gratitude to Delphine and Ken Roberts for their generous support of the Blair School.

Family Film: "Coraline"

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

Inspired by the artistic examination of Surrealism in Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Frist Center is pleased to announce a three-part film series. Through dreamlike atmosphere, nonlinear storytelling, and delightfully twisted imagery, these films defy convention and delve into the uncanny moments of the everyday.

Coraline is a curious young girl who unlocks a mysterious door in her family's new home and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this “Other World” eerily mimics her own life—though it is much more fantastical and sinister. Coraline must rely on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to escape the clutches of her “Other Mother” and get back home. Directed by Henry Selick and Mike Cachuela. Starring Dakota Fanning, John Hodgman, Teri Hatcher. Rated PG. 100 minutes. 2009. DVD.

Paper Route

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Here’s the situation. In Nashville, there’s an old, decrepit plantation house where three bedraggled but refined, white gentlemen drop beats, craft wordplay, design artwork, and arrange orchestral maneuvers in the dark. The structure is called Joy Mansion, and the men who dwell there staring each other down and exercising their creative rivalry for all it’s worth collaborate under the moniker of Paper Route.

Having toured relentlessly with the likes of Passion Pit and mewithoutyou, won hearts and minds with their debut album Absence (2009), paid musical tribute to Lou Reed to the man’s imperturbable face at South by Southwest, and insinuated themselves into pop culture consciousness when their song, “The Music,” appeared in the film (500) Days of Summer, Paper Route have now seen fit to go for broke on the possibility that epic earnestness, lyrical depth, and poetic heft can all coincide within one ridiculously catchy song collection primarily preoccupied with—wait for it–tragedy, disappointment, and loss. Behold The Peace of Wild Things.

Everyone can relate to hurt,” observes J.T. Daly, Paper Route’s chief lyricist, singer, and artwork conjurer. For Daly and bandmate Chad Howat, The Peace of Wild Things banks on the hope that popular art can be made to arise out of horrible situations. Whereas the timing of the album’s production schedule coincided with a dire cancer diagnosis within Howat’s immediate family, the lyrics Daly brought to the table largely document the dissolution of his marriage. As Daly sees it, the risk of raw candor and vulnerability is the whole point, “If I’m not terrified by what I’m doing, I’d prefer to move back to Ohio and work on my art. I’m drawn to the fact that it makes me feel uncomfortable.”

Gary Morris

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

The romantic ballads of Texas-born Gary Morris were staples of country radio in the1980s -- none more so than "The Wind Beneath My Wings," which was covered by Bette Midler later in the decade and became a song heard at weddings perhaps more often than any other.

From the start, Morris had a powerful voice well suited to the musical theater stage, and after his string of country hits came to an end he enjoyed a successful theatrical career. Morris didn't give up on country music at first; he recorded 12 country albums in all, including the innovative, mostly acoustic Plain Brown Wrapper, and he notched 16 Top Ten singles.

But his role in Les Misérables evolved into a part in the show’s touring production and then in its symphonically accompanied recording. These activities took time, and Morris' country career suffered. His live-theater activities,on the other hand, flourished; he appeared with another former progressive country singer, Linda Ronstadt, in the Broadway adaptation of Puccini's opera La Bohème, and he spent much of the 1990s working on other pop projects such as a PBS special concert performance in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Russia.

Morris returned to country music as a performer in Branson, MO, and as a producer in the late 90s. He has shepherded the career of his son, Matthew, and has often performed private concerts for corporate clients. Morris resides at his own fly-fishing lodge in the Colorado Rockies.

PETER PANDEMIC

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

PETER PANDEMIC returns to Douglas Corner Cafe Friday, October 10th at 9PM to rock the room with powerful songs, infectious melodies and killer vocal harmonies. This is a DON'T MISS show!

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians. Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them. It is also where one might often witness an impromptu jam session with legendary artists, players and writers.

Real/Surreal

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

A survey of works from the 1920s to 1960s drawn from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Real/Surreal looks at the way in which many American artists represented reality as a subjective and malleable state of mind rather than a fixed truth. Influenced by European Surrealists of the 1920s like Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, some American artists used the tools of illusionistic representation to subvert reality entirely, while others subtly tweaked the conventions of realism, turning the familiar into something unsettling and uncanny. The exhibition includes works by Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood, Man Ray and Thomas Hart Benton, among others.

Real/Surreal is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

La Bohème

Presented by Nashville Opera Association at TPAC - Andrew Jackson Hall

On Christmas Eve in Paris, Roldofo, a young, starving poet, falls in love with Mimi, a beautiful, young seamstress…and opera has never been the same.  Puccini’s La Bohème is, without a doubt, one of the most popular operas ever written.  With its thrilling, beautiful music and its mixture of high comedy and serious drama, the opera sweeps the viewer away into a world of young love, a world of romance, and ultimately, a world tinged with bittersweet longing.  WithLa Bohème, Puccini wonderfully captures just what it means to be young and alive, offering us a brilliant mixture of lightness or darkness, all set to some of the most romantic music ever written.

Sung in Italian with easy-to-read projected English supertitles.
