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

It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

The Kooks with Joywave, Young Rising Sons

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

British rock band The Kooks are a self-described "pop" band that draw inspiration from various sources to create their unique rock sound, borrowing equally from the '60s British invasion bands and the post-punk revival of the new millennium to craft uncompromisingly catchy songs. The band have achieved massive success globally since their breakthrough into the mainstream with debut album "Inside In/Inside Out" (2006), which achieved quadruple platinum status in the UK within a year and earned the band awards for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 and a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single "She Moves in Her Own Way." Sophomore album "Konk" debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, selling 65,000 copies in its first week alone. Their third studio album, entitled "Junk of the Heart," was released on September 2011.

Following sold-out shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and at SXSW earlier this year, The Kooks are excited to get back on the road again, share material from their upcoming fourth album (the first music from the band in over two years), and play for their fans long into the nights.

Chevelle and The Used

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

Chevelle – which is Pete Loeffler (guitars, vocals), Sam Loeffler (drums) and Dean Bernardini (bass, vocals) – will be touring in support of their newest album, La Gárgola, which was released last year on Epic Records. The album, which is the band’s seventh full-length record, builds on the group's impressive foundation, including the 2002 platinum-selling genre staple Wonder What's Next and the gold-certified follow-up This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In as well as experimental epic Sci-Fi Crimes and, most recently, 2011'sHats Off To The Bull, which respectively debuted at #9 and #19 on the Billboard Top 200. However, their signature style naturally morphs into a powerful and passionate new beast, otherwise known as La Gárgola—Spanish for "Gargoyle."

The Used issued their gold-certified Self-Titled debut in 2002, quickly cementing the Used as leaders among the post-hardcore elite, thanks in part to unforgettable singles like “Box Full of Sharp Objects,” “The Taste of Ink,” “Blue And Yellow” and “Buried Myself Alive". The band then released the CD/DVD combo “Maybe Memories” in 2003, now certified platinum, featuring B-sides, live cuts, demos and unreleased tracks, while still another gold record followed—2004’s “In Love And Death”— spawning singles “Take It Away,” “I Caught Fire” and “All That I’ve Got” – which earned the band their first MuchMusic Video Award nomination. Their latest LP Imaginary Enemy put the band’s political frustrations and commitment to social change at its forefront and has opened up the platform for conversation among fans and critics alike. The album climbed high on the Independent, Tastemaker Albums, Hard Rock, Alternative, Digital Albums and Top Rock charts.

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: Brett Eldredge, The Isaacs, The Black Lillies, Del McCoury Band, Phil Vassar 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.

Cardboard Kids with Golden Youth, Youth & Young Brother

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

The Nashville rock outfit, Cardboard Kids, grew up as friends in the dense back woods of Tyler, Texas in a scene similar to "the scene that celebrates itself". They played in teenage bands together, often switching out members of each other's bands and lending talents in order to make better music with no consequences in mind except to make great music and further that idea as an example to neighboring music scenes in the bigger, saturated cities nearby.

In 2013, the three members came together to form Cardboard Kids, in hopes to create a new sound with the influences of soul and rock.

Urban Housing Solutions Cinco de Mayo Celebration | The Big Payback

Presented by Urban Housing Solutions

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is offering incentives for organizations with the highest donations during certain time blocks and Urban Housing Solutions (UHS) has selected HAPPY HOUR! Please join us at the UHS home office—822 Woodland Street—for food drinks and fun and a celebration of Cinco de Mayo!!!

Why Cinco de Mayo? Aside from it being an all around fun and festive holiday, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla despite being outnumbered.

Many of our residents come to UHS with the odds stacked against them. Some have substance abuse issues, little to no family support, generational poverty, physical and mental disabilities, or combinations of these.

It is through our Service Coordinators that residents can locate and utilize available resources to make them successful  and not only survive—-BUT THRIVE!

Your contributions to Urban Housing Solutions through the Big Payback will go to sustain the social services programs that we offer our residents. GIVE BIG AND GIVE BACK!

On May 5th, go to www.thebigpayback.org and DONATE to UHS from 5-7 pm!!!

Each Individually Were session musicians who had also toured with and Played for some of the most Well known recording artist in world, They Rarely got to play together but one night in 2013 They got to jam in Nashville and while hanging out after the show Someone Jokingly blurted out...We should start an instrumental band Just like (The Dixie Dregs) only Minus the fiddle & with catchier songs! At first they all laughed but the next day While in his home studio Guitarist and hit singer songwriter (Anthony Smith) Started thinking about that Conversation, knowing that all the guys had their own home studios Anthony Started composing a challenging yet catchy song called Fat Cake. He recorded his guitar parts then Mp3'd them to drummer (Pat McDonald), Keyboardist (Dane Bryant) and bassist (David Phoenix Karns). None of them got to (hear or play to) each others parts....only Anthony's guitar. The next day Anthony checked his email messages to find that the guys Had all sent him their individual parts, Anthony took all their parts and put them Together in a pro tools session and it was Magic, (The Fluxu8ers) were born and the buzz began. To this day (The Fluxu8ers) have never recorded a song While in the same room at the same time Yet are somehow able to sound more Live than a studio band Recording in the same room at the same time. (The Fluxu8ers) will begin touring soon!

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.

Milky Chance

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

You never know who you're going to meet on the first day of school. Sometimes, you can end up being introduced to one of the best friends you'll ever know. That was the case for Clemens and Philipp—otherwise known as Milky Chance. The Kassel, Germany duo met in an "Advanced Music Course" at the start of eleventh grade, and they creatively gelled right off the bat.


"On that first day, you're looking around the classroom trying to see who's cool and who's not," laughs Clemens. "We clicked though. It didn't take long at all for us to notice that we got along great."


They got along so great that they played in a local band until graduation. Even though the group disbanded when their drummer left Kassel, Clemens and Philipp kept on making music. Weaving together elegant electronic production with acoustic guitars and lilting, lush vocals, they harnessed a style unequivocally their own.

Clemens put it best, "Think of it as the singer-songwriter spirit mixed with electronic beats. Somehow, it's always a little bit melancholy, but there's a positive spin. You can dance to most of it too! Melancholy is something that I carry within me. I write the best songs when this mood catches me.”

Two Gallants

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

On February 3rd, the San Francisco based guitar-drum duo Two Gallants are set to release their 5th studio album, We Are Undone, on ATO Records. While singer and guitarist Adam Stephens and drummer Tyson Vogel have stayed true to the two-person format since their acclaimed 2004 debut, The Throes, their sound has evolved considerably over the intervening years. Following 2012’s The Bloom and the Blight, We Are Undone is the band’s second release on ATO. Thematically, the album ranges from songs that attempt to make sense of the dramatically shifting social landscape of their home town, to the illusion of authenticity, impending environmental collapse, and romantic estrangement. Sonically, the thrash blues of songs such as “We Are Undone” and “Some Trouble” is balanced by the austerity of ballads such as “My Man Go” and “There’s So Much I Don’t Know.”

Reached at home, Stephens and Vogel talked about finding inspiration in admitting you don’t have the answers. You recorded this with Karl Derfler in Panoramic Studio in Stinson Beach; what was working with Karl like? For this one, he just acted more as an engineer than a straight producer, correct?

Adam Stephens: The limitations of playing with essentially two instruments has probably been the most driving force for our sound over the years. It’s like this wall that we continually bump up against and every time it repels us in a new direction. Karl pulled off some incredible things within those restrictions. Karl’s been involved in some amazing records and with a lot of musicians we look up to: Tom Waits, Roky Erickson, The Flamin’ Groovies, just to name a few. The three of us pretty much saw eye-to-eye immediately on what we wanted to hear. I think he was able to capture our sound in a way that was very familiar and very real but somehow new to us as well.

So on the opening song and title track "We Are Undone," You’re talking about the marketplace, you’re talking about the dry and barren field.  And you also say "you sing to the choir/and they know every line." What was sort of on your mind as you were making the song?

AS: I guess that song is about the illusion of thinking that what you’re doing is of some significance simply because people come out to your shows or because you are told that you make something that moves people in a certain way. But the song is definitely not a statement. I don’t know. It was more of an exploration I guess.

Like, trying to find an answer through a song. It’s not like you have a definite answer. You’re sort of thinking about things out loud.

AS: Yeah. I don’t believe in writing songs with a plan in mind. That saps all the impulse out of it when it should be more like following a lead. The lead I was following with “We Are Undone” was, without being too blunt about it,

 

trying to make sense of this unending pressure to acquire and consume, and usually as conspicuously
as possible, that has taken a hold of our culture. Consuming actual material items and consuming the belief
system behind it: that our lives and our happiness are absolutely dependent upon those very items. Everyone is aware of the destructive nature of the way that we live, but nobody wants to do away with all of its comforts. And if you, for a second, start to tell someone that the only way we’re going to solve a problem is if we do away with a certain comfort that they’ve grown up with or grown so accustomed to, then people are up in arms and don’t want to do anything about it.

Were you thinking about anything in particular when you wrote this song? Because you’re from San Francisco. Was that something on your mind while you were writing?

AS: Not this song as much. Actually, the last song on the album, “There’s So Much I Don’t Know,” has a lot more to do with that.

How so?

AS: It’s a bit more about the feeling of becoming estranged from the city, from San Francisco. The place that has always been our home has become rather unwelcoming for the very people whose eccentricities had defined the city for so long; people who want to live simply and make art or music or just be weird somewhere. Every place that has housed or staged that oddity and diversity has basically become extremely exclusive or been shut down. The strangeness is gone. That’s kind of the centerpiece of the song I guess.

Tyson Vogel: If you listen to all of our records, we never have ever tried to portray anything that wouldn’t really be there if you were to go see us play live. And I think a lot of that is in the process of creating the songs, too. Also just having faith in that space, but also, giving the simplistic nature of only two members its full due. You have to commit to it fully.

So tell me about the cover? I hear you have something interesting planned.

AS: It’s a drawing by Kevin Earl Taylor of a 160,000 year old fossilized human skull. As far as the fossil record reveals, it’s basically considered to be from the last stage of evolution that preceded modern humans. The idea was to hint at humanity before it had fully developed its self­-awareness. When its consciousness was just budding. A stage, obviously, all of us go through in a lifetime when we first begin to realize that we’re actually individuals, separate from our parents and our surroundings.

You and Tyson have been working together for around 12 years, and you’ve known each other for much longer than that, right?

AS: Yeah, we’ve known each other since we were five.

So, as you and Tyson have been doing it for a long time, do you sort of have to push each other in order to keep it fresh? Do you guys have to guard each other and let yourselves fall back on old habits?

AS: Well, I would say the one thing that we try to remind one another of is to not overthink what we’re playing. A lot of times when we have a new song that feels pretty good, we’ll decide to not keep working on it because we don’t want to lose that initial feeling. It’s sort of inevitable that we will. But it’s really important to kind of keep that initial feeling, to be able to maintain that part of the song that was there before it could really be considered a song.

TV: I think there’s something especially raw about being in a band with only two people, there’s a certain set of chemistry or energy that happens. This sort of transferal. And I think that ever since the beginning, it’s been super intimate. Because it’s only us two. And so, with that there comes a lot of freedom. And then there comes a lot of spots where we both have to be able to acclimate to maybe a difference of approach or a creative idea that is new to our process. And there’s a volatile love that comes with that process. I think that with this album, in reference to the albums previous, I think it steps in line with this other sort of expansion of both our personal lives, and our relationships personally. We’re both growing together and in different ways, and learning how to find that balance.

RiffTrax Live: THE ROOM

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

From the Stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000! Staring Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, & Bill Corbett. Perhaps the most baffling and hilarious independent film ever produced, “THE ROOM” has won legions of fans around the world and become a favorite at festivals and midnight screenings!

“THE ROOM” tells the story, kind of, of a San Francisco bank employee (played by writer/director/auteur Tommy Wiseau) whose fiancee, the beautiful Lisa, seduces Tommy’s best friend. This tears Tommy apart, causing him to put on a tuxedo and play very lame games of football toss with his weird neighbor, have long puzzling rooftop discussions, and eventually, throw a very light TV out his own window.

If there were ever a movie tailor made for the RiffTrax guys, “THE ROOM” is it!  Join Mike, Kevin and Bill as they bring their special brand of movie mockery to theaters nationwide.

THIS IS A NON-SPOON EVENT: RiffTrax Live is a live comedy show performed here and broadcast to movie theaters across the country. Out of respect for the performers on stage, as well as audience members here and in other theaters, we ask that attendees refrain from shouting stuff during the show or throwing spoons. As a matter of fact, we'd appreciate it if you didn't throw anything at all.

Diamond Rugs with New Madrid

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Diamond Rugs make the sort of loose and limber rock ‘n’ roll that inspires liquor-induced hijinks. It’s rowdy and ribald without ever entering asshole-at-the-bar territory; good-natured shenanigans from genial punk-rock goons making rock music for your local jukebox. It also makes a great soundtrack for driving down back roads drinking a sixer of Bud.

Zappa Plays Zappa

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Dweezil Zappa was born on September 5, 1969 in Los Angeles—the son of Frank and Gail Zappa. It was inevitable that from the moment of his birth his life would be filled wall-to wall with music (his father having listed his religion as "musician" on Dweezil's birth certificate). Dweezil's early years were spent largely away from the spotlight—something of a rarity for the child of a celebrity, but perfect for cultivating a close relationship with his family.

Having watched his father perform concerts from the side of the stage since he was in diapers it was no surprise that he began to show an interest in music early on. At 6 years old he received his first guitar, a Fender Music Master from his dad. It wasn't until he was 12 that he began to show a serious interest in manipulating the instrument to make music.

Having primarily heard the music his father was working on or listening to at home while growing up, Dweezil soon found himself exposed to some new sounds on the radio. Besides his father's music he began listening to the Beatles, Queen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who and Jimi Hendrix. Like many aspiring guitarists of his generation, Dweezil 's ear was caught in a stranglehold by the trailblazing guitar styles of Edward Van Halen and Randy Rhoads. He listened to their records for hours on end trying to figure out a way to translate what he was hearing in his head to his fingers at the other end of the guitar. Along the way, he had opportunities to ask his dad for some help. "I remember asking Frank to help me figure out the song 'Revelation/Mother Earth' from Blizzard Of Oz. I really didn't know anything about chords and in that song Randy Rhoads was using classical music elements that were really new to rock guitar at the time. Frank helped me learn the finger picking intro." To gain more fundamental knowledge of technique and scales Dweezil was fortunate to have some assistance from one of the musicians in his father's band at that time, Steve Vai. Dweezil became remarkably proficient in a very short amount of time due to his intense practicing sessions.

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway.

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.

What We Do in the Shadows

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that's not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series "Flight of the Conchords," co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet.

Dir. Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, New Zealand, 2014, 86 min., NR, DCP

Watkins BFA Thesis Exhibitions: Opening Reception for Luisiana Mera, Weng Tze Yang and Zack Rafuls

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

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents fine art and photography from Luisiana Mera (Añoranza), Weng Tze Yang (Idle Light) and Zack Rafuls (Props for a Film), opening Thursday, May 7. The final of four installments in the Spring 2015 BFA Senior Thesis Exhibition series, the triple show will be on display in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery through May 18.

Luisiana Mera, Panama City, Panama
BFA in Fine Art
Show title: Añoranza (charcoal on paper, oil paint on canvas)

Luisiana Mera works with charcoal to create delicately rendered drawings that are tactile, velvety and dreamlike. The medium and the slow process support the intent of the drawing: building and erasing with charcoal mimic the idea of building a complex, intimate image. Her artistic practice is centered on a critical investigation of the body and human psychological moments.

Weng Tze Yang, Ipoh City, Perak, Malaysia

 

BFA in Photography
Show title: Idle Light (photographs with mixed media, photo installations)

A photographer who works with abstract photographs and installations, Weng Tze Yang seeks to bring in the act of contemplation into the viewing experience for her audience. Her photographs are abstract with elements of familiarities; the subtle shades of colors, the play of shadows and light creates a poem that resembles her view of spaces. She also emphasizes on the physicality of the materials she uses for her work as they affect how she display them in the gallery. By creating installations using her photographs, she expresses her own reality through her work, hoping that her viewers will be able to do so, engaging their own perceptions and thoughts with her images.

Zack Rafuls, Chattanooga, TN
BFA in Fine Art
Show title: Props for a Film (soft sculpture, screen-printing, tropical plant, conceptual sound, bisque-fired ceramic, large-scale drawing

Zack Rafuls is a maker of art objects with an interdisciplinary practice that incorporates a wide-range of media and modes of making. A native of Miami, Florida, he moved to Tennessee in his early teens and to Nashville in 2011. His work – primarily sculpture, installation, painting, printmaking and video – has been exhibited at Ground Floor Gallery, the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery at Watkins, Track One, Cummins Station, and in solo and group shows at WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery); he is currently co-curator at the Packing Plant. Chair of the art collective Co. H, Zack has interned at Zeitgeist Gallery and studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Props for a Film presents a series of eclectic objects that function as components to a fragmented, semi-autobiographical narrative. At the heart of the work is a preoccupation with the appropriation of image as a means to construct a counter-cultural identity.

While We're Young

Presented by The Belcourt at Belcourt Theatre

Noah Baumbach’s comedic exploration of aging, ambition and success stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-40s whose careers and marriage are upended when a spontaneous young couple, Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), enter their lives, reinvigorating the older couple with their fondness for urban beach parties, VHS tapes and untethered spontaneity. Ceaselessly witty, articulate and relatable, WHILE WE’RE YOUNG is alive with the chemistry born of a quality comedy with a great cast.

White God

Presented by The Belcourt at Belcourt Theatre

When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen because his mixed-breed heritage is deemed “unfit” by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called “unfit” dogs rise up under their new leader Hagen—the one-time house pet who has learned all too well from his “Masters” in his journey through the streets and animal control centers that man is not always dog's best friend. Winner of the Un Certain Regard Prize at the 2014 Cannes Festival, WHITE GOD is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed human superiors, but it’s also a stark, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe.

The Wrecking Crew

Presented by The Belcourt at Belcourt Theatre

Seven years after its festival run—slowed down by myriad licensing for extensive musical clips—this documentary on the unsung musicians who provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960s has finally received a theatrical release. What the Funk Brothers did for Motown, The Wrecking Crew did (only bigger) for the West Coast Sound. Six years in a row in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Grammy for “Record of the Year” went to Wrecking Crew recordings. And now, THE WRECKING CREW tells the story in pictures and that oh-so-glorious sound. The favorite songs of a generation are all here, presented by the people who made them for you.  It didn’t matter if it was Nat “King” Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated artists brought the flair and musicianship that made the American “West Coast Sound” a dominant cultural force around the world. Produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco.

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

David Parmley is native of southern California. He is a founding member of the internationally acclaimed, Bluegrass Cardinals.

Sarah Simmons Showcase

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for a showcase featuring Sarah Simmons.

Twenty-five-year-old singer-songwriter Sarah Simmons discovered her passion for music - and her powerful singing voice - during her childhood in Birmingham, Alabama. She studied music at the innovative Visible Music College in Memphis, where the school’s Grammy-winning President recognized her extraordinary talent and recommended her for a private audition for NBC’s “The Voice.” Her unique singing style and versatility propelled her to a 7th Place finish on Season 4 of the show. Audiences reacted strongly to Sarah’s 5-octave range and her uncanny ability to adapt to practically any genre of music. Following her appearance on “The Voice”, she has continued to build a devoted following through numerous strong live performances all over the United States.

Panda Bear

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

When Panda Bear met the Grim Reaper, they jammed. Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, a.k.a. one-fourth of the founding members of Animal Collective, has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and with a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later, that’s more the case than ever. But if the title of his fifth solo album as Panda Bear seems to portend certain doom, think again. Taking his inspiration from ‘70s dub duo albums like King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown and Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & the Wailers Band, Panda Bear prefers to frame his latest work as less of a battle and more a collaboration. “I see it [as] more comic-booky, a little more lighthearted,” he says. “Like Alien Vs. Predator.”

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Eight O'Five Jive

Presented by Eight O'Five Jive at National Dance Clubs of Murfreesboro

Take a lesson and then dance the rest of the night to Eight O'Five Jive!

Eight O’Five Jive has enough energy to power a small fleet of ’57 Cadillacs, with more than adequate fuel to ignite any stage on fire with their driving sound of swingin’ blues and early rock ‘n roll. Reminiscent of the classic era of the late 1940’s to the late 1950’s, when men wore fedora’s and strong women with attitude ruled the cocktail dress, jump jive defined an exciting era of music and dance.

Freddy King, Mabel Scott, and Wynonnie Harris, and more, along with some original compositions, define Eight O’Five Jive as a creative ensemble of jump, and swingin blues. A few well-placed steamy jazz standards round out the sound, but also entice an intimate moment to linger over a martini, or a sloe gin fizz.

The Comedy of Steve Bruner w/ Special Guest Tim Northern

Presented by Arts Center of Cannon County at Arts Center of Cannon County

Clean Comedians Steve Bruner & special guest Tim Northern will be appearing at The Arts Center of Cannon County in Woodbury, TN.

Steve Bruner has been featured on Showtime, the A&E Network, ABC, MTV and on nationally syndicated shows. Club appearances include The Comedy & Magic Club, The Improv, Catch a Rising Star, The Punchline and The Ice House. Steve’s act has appealed to a wide variety of audiences, performing with some of the biggest acts in show business. He has been on the bill of fare with such acts as Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Engvall, Dennis Miller, Carlos Alazraqui, Dana Carvey, Chelsea Handler, Richard Lewis, Father Guido Sarducci, Norm Crosby, Oscar Peterson, Ray Charles and the Pointer Sisters.

Steve Bruner’s unique comic sensibility has landed him work as a writer for several TV shows including, Fox TV’s Haywire. Steve has also provided monologue material for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The website owned by the late George Carlin: Laugh.com sums it up perfectly:
"Steve Bruner is a great guy. He is also one of the most successful comedians in the business. You can see him regularly in clubs, on television and on cruise ships. Clean, smart and funny define Steve."

Special Guest Tim Northern’s appearance as a finalist on the nationally televised “Star Search”, Naomi Judd raved about his performance. “He’s the only one that could be a member of Mensa,” she said. “I absolutely adore the cerebral humor.”

Noted intellectual (and former game show host) Ben Stein agreed with her assessment, adding his own accolade, “I love that fact that he assumes his audience has a brain!”

Coming from an Ivy League presidential pundit, that’s high praise indeed for someone who never set foot in college. “It was a great moment,” Tim says. And it’s exactly the response he’s hoping for each and every time he takes the stage. “That’s what I’m striving for. I provide you with two-thirds of the joke, and you provide the other third. It’s like ‘do-it-yourself’ comedy.

Tim appeared on Star Search and most recently on Last Comic Standing in 2014 as well as opening for such comedians as Rodney Carrington, Bill Engvall, Larry The Cable Guy and Ron White.

Hip Donelson Farmers Market | Season Opening | The Carmonas

Presented by Hip Donelson Farmers Market at Hip Donelson Farmers Market

For its grand opening of the 2015 season, the Hip Donelson Farmers Market presents The Carmonas.  Growing up on both coasts, Aaron, Chad and Allison Carmona were influenced by country and bluegrass coming from North Carolina and the more eclectic laid-back style of California. Their music today is a heartfelt mix of folk, bluegrass and classic rock n roll.  As songwriters, the Carmonas bring an honesty and realness to their lyrics; as performers, their powerful vocals, sibling harmonies and prodigal guitar licks make people sit up and listen.

Andy Davis with My Red + Blue

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

Andy Davis's smart and seductive blue-eyed soul music weds indelible hooks to sly, incisive lyrics, creating songs that sound like newly minted pop-soul classics. A Louisiana native, Davis released his first album, "Thinks of Her," in 2004. "Thinks of Her" struck a chord on college campuses, selling out its initial print run. The original pressing of the CD -- with Davis's hand-written lyrics and stenciled cover art -- became a collector's item within months of its release. In 2005, the remastered rerelease of "Thinks of Her" gained Davis national exposure and brought him to the attention of legendary music producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello). The result of their collaboration was "Let the Woman," a sophisticated, sonically adventurous album that ignited a bidding war. Barnes and Noble won the exclusive rights to distribute "Let the Woman" online and in their stores all over the world. The album's single, "Brown Eyes," became a staple on AAA radio stations nationwide, and "Let the Woman" became a #4 bestseller. Davis toured extensively in support of "Let the Woman", both headlining and opening for Colbie Caillat, Jakob Dylan, Mat Kearney, Will Hoge, Howie Day, and NEEDTOBREATHE. The following year, Davis became a prominent member of Ten Out of Tenn, a critically acclaimed collective of Nashville singer/songwriters who joined forces for a collaborative tour that was documented in the award-winning documentary film, "Any Day Now." In 2009, Davis returned to Nashville to record his EP, "New History," which was featured in -- and inspired -- an episode of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." Other shows that have recently featured his songs include an episode of “Jersey Shore” and “One Tree Hill.” In February of 2011, Davis broke back onto the scene when he raised over $41,000 strictly from fans in just 30 days through a Kickstarter campaign to record his new album. Davis went straight into the studio with the funding, back to Los Angeles to work with Mitchell Froom again, co-producing a new full-length album called "Heartbreak Yellow." Heartbreak Yellow hit #2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts in early 2012 and continues to spread, steadily adding fuel to the growing fire of existing fans, while catching the attention of brand new listeners worldwide.

Snap on 2&4 w/ Imer Santiago

Presented by Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop

NJW is pleased to welcome trumpeter Imer Santiago and his quintet back to the Jazz Cave for a return Snap on 2&4 appearance.

Born in Lorain, Ohio, to parents originally from Puerto Rico, Santiago took up trumpet while in the fifth grade, and grew up listening to church hymns and to African-American gospel songs that had been translated into Spanish. Remaining active in church music, he toured from 2004 to 2007 as a member of the prominent Austin-based Christian rock band Salvador, with whom he still plays occasional dates. After high school - where he played in the orchestra, marching band, and jazz band - Santiago went on to earn bachelor's degrees in jazz studies and atmospheric sciences from Ohio State University, followed by a master's of music in jazz studies from the University of New Orleans, where his instructors included Ellis Marsalis, Wendell Brunious, Harold Battiste, and Clyde Kerr Jr. Imer released his debut CD, "Hidden Journey," in 2013. 

The band for this performance will include phenomenal saxophonist Rahsaan Barber joining Imer on the front line, as well as pianist Matt Endahl, bassist Jon Estes and drummer Marcus Finnie

Not in Nashville? This show will be streaming LIVE on Concert Window!

Noam Pikelny & Stuart Duncan

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist among a new generation of acoustic musicians. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as the “pros’ top banjo picker,” Noam is a founding member of Punch Brothers, a string ensemble which The Boston Globe calls “a virtuosic revelation” and The New Yorker describes as “wide- ranging and restlessly imaginative.” His new release, Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe, is the first complete banjo adaptation of Kenny Baker’s 1976 seminal recording of Bill Monroe instrumentals that is poised to take the bluegrass world by storm. Multi-instrumentalist Stuart Duncan has built upon his bluegrass roots to become an artist that defies categorization and surpasses the limits of any specific genre.  The consummate sideman, Stuart has lent his particular taste and tone to countless artists and projects.  Whether trading dizzying instrumental licks with the likes of Bela Fleck and Jerry Douglas, or adding complimentary fills for vocalists Alan Jackson and Barbara Streisand, Stuart has found a professional "home" both in the studio and on tour.  From Robert Plant to Panic at the Disco, Stuart's playing and influence can be heard among many of today's top hit-makers.

A Prairie Home Companion

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

If you showed up on July 6, 1974, at the Janet Wallace Auditorium at Macalester College in Saint Paul and plunked down your $1 admission (50 cents for kids) to attend the very first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, you were in select company. There were about 12 people in the audience. But those in attendance thought there were worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon, so Garrison Keillor and the APHC team went on to produce close to 500 live shows in the first 10 years alone. There were broadcasts from this venue and that, until March 4, 1978, when the show moved to The World Theater, a lovely, crumbling building that was one plaster crack away from the wrecking ball. (Now fully renovated and renamed The Fitzgerald, it is the show’s home base.)

There has been plenty of adventure in the past 30-plus years — broadcasts from Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, Iceland and almost every one of the 50 states; wonderful performers, little-known and world-renowned; standing ovations and stares of bewilderment. We’ve missed planes, coped with lost luggage, dodged swooping bats and hungry mosquitoes, plodded through blizzards, and flown by the seat of our pants.

Today, A Prairie Home Companion is heard by 4 million listeners each week on more than 600 public radio stations, and abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks in Europe and the Far East. Garrison recalls, “When the show started, it was something funny to do with my friends, and then it became an achievement that I hoped would be successful, and now it’s a good way of life.”

A Prairie Home Companion is produced by Prairie Home Productions, and distributed nationwide by American Public Media.

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Sensory Friendly Performance

With general admission seating, this show is designed to be an accepting environment where patrons with disabilities and their typically developing peers are free to speak and move in reaction to the play. Audio levels may be lowered for this production and noise-reducing headphones are available. Contact the box office for more information.

About: For the 56 years the Cat's been on the page, we could never get rights to put him on our stage. We've asked quite politely, we've pleaded just so, but the answer was always, no, no, no, no, NO! Now, thanks to the National Theatre of Britain, at last a stage version has finally been written -- With no added text (lots of mime, dance and movement) and Seuss illustrations (which need no improvement!).

The Cat in the Hat will be here in the spring, but he won't be alone, no, he's going to bring Dick and Sally, The Pink Fish, Thing One and Thing Two, they're all going to be here, so how about you?

Matt & Kim

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Brooklyn indie dance duo Matt and Kim release New Glow, the band's latest full length on April 07th, 2015.

Matt and Kim, aka Matt Johnson (vocals/keyboards) and Kim Schifino (drums), get things rolling in their exuberant style with a performance lyric video for the song "Get It": Three minutes and seven seconds of heaven for anyone who has, or hasn't yet, seen Matt and Kim's legendary live shows.

The two met while attending Pratt Institute and quickly became known for their thunder-punching, melodic mix of indie and dance music. Right off, Spin said "there truly is no sound these two won't use to support their almost religious commitment to spreading huge grins," while Pitchfork described their quality as "melody so happily jerky and rhythms so dangerously spastic that you can practically hear paroxysmal crowds pogo-ing madly…Johnson sings, and thousands of other kids in his zip code (and others like it around the country) feel like he's describing their Saturday nights."

Previously, Matt and Kim's video for "Lessons Learned," in which they strip naked in Times Square on a very cold February day, won an MTV Music Award for "Breakthrough Video." 2012's Lightning (FADER) featured the Alternative radio hit "Let's Go" and single "Daylight" was certified Gold.

All the while they toured the globe, becoming the go-to band for raw exuberance, bombastic beats, sing-along refrains and dance-ready anthems on larger and larger scales. They've performed at many, many major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Firefly, Summerfest, Big Day Out, Fuji, V, Pukkelpop and Ultra.

Minus The Bear

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

Adventurous rock quintet Minus the Bear are finally following up their well-received 2008 acoustic EP Acoustics with a new full length LP titled Acoustics II. The new release features eight reimagined and elegantly pared down Minus the Bear standouts, in addition to two brand new songs, "Riddles" and "The Storm." The release is a rare chance for fans to experience the group's songwriting and innovation in its purest form. Physical copies of the band's first installment, Acoustics, is currently out of print, having sold out 5,000 copies of its limited edition run on both vinyl and CD.

Minus the Bear is Jake Snider (vocals, guitar), David Knudson (guitar), Cory Murchy (bass), Alex Rose (keyboards, saxophone, vocals, programming), and Erin Tate (drums & percussion). The Seattle-based band formed in 2001, and has since released five full length LPs and eight Eps, totaling an excess of 400K in sales and all the while staying true to its uncompromising artistic ideals. The group's tireless work ethic has helped build a robust live following with the band headlining countless sold out shows across the globe, as well as sharing the stage with such diverse and respected artists as Soundgarden, Jimmy Eat World, and Foo Fighters. In a recent episode of "Live From Daryl's House" featuring Minus the Bear, Daryl Hall jammed with members of the band further illustrating the depth and singularity of the band's songwriting.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Joe Kelly: New York, 1981

Presented by Belmont University - Leu Art Gallery at Belmont University - Leu Art Gallery

Joe Kelly was a photographer in New York City during the 1970's and 1980's. His time in New York was consumed with his camera traveling to popular nightlife clubs like Studio 54 and also adventuring the streets and everyday life of New York City.

Within the New York Party scene, he photographed and rubbed shoulders with celebrities, which eventually led him to meet Diane Keaton. Diane saw his photographs, loved his work and convinced him to move to LA to produce movies. He worked through the late 80's and 90's in LA on various films.

In the early 2000's Joe moved back to Kansas City because of an aggressive form of Parkinson's Disease and has since then been in assisted living arrangements. When Joe moved back, all of his personal belongings and photographic work landed in storage. 1000's of his negatives were placed in a storage unit, with no one sure what to do with his archive. This exhibition is composed of 45 images that juxtapose the dreamlike state of Studio 54 against the realities of the streets of New York.

Tennis

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Tennis is comprised of couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The Denver-based duo began writing music together as a way to document their time living at sea on a small forty year old sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory which saw them quickly become one of the most alluring and blogged about bands of the new decade. Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, which The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient,” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three straight weeks. The album also debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1 remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. In 2013 the Small Sound EP debuted on Communion Music, followed by thousands of miles on the road, and a support tour with sister super-group, Haim. Late last year, the duo released Ritual In Repeat. Produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Richard Swift (The Shins), their latest full length showcases a band in full control of their sound and craft. With well over a million streams and multiple television spots, the album has been received with open arms by loyal fans as well as new.

The Comedy of Steve Bruner With Special Guest Tim Northern

Presented by PHIL BARBER PRESENTS at The Historic Palace Theatre - Crossville

Los Angeles based comedian Steve Bruner has been featured on Showtime, the A&E Network, ABC, MTV and on nationally syndicated shows. Club appearances include The Comedy & Magic Club, The Improv, Catch a Rising Star, The Punchline and The Ice House. Steve’s act has appealed to a wide variety of audiences, performing with some of the biggest acts in show business. He has been on the bill of fare with such acts as Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Engvall, Dennis Miller, Carlos Alazraqui, Dana Carvey, Richard Lewis, Father Guido Sarducci, Norm Crosby, Oscar Peterson, Ray Charles and the Pointer Sisters.

Steve Bruner’s unique comic sensibility has landed him work as a writer for several TV shows including, Fox TV’s Haywire. Steve has also provided monologue material for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The website owned by the late George Carlin: Laugh.com sums it up perfectly: "Steve Bruner is a great guy. He is also one of the most successful comedians in the business. You can see him regularly in clubs, on television and on cruise ships. Clean, smart and funny define Steve."

Special Guest Tim Northern’s appearance as a finalist on the nationally televised “Star Search”, Naomi Judd raved about his performance. “He’s the only one that could be a member of Mensa,” she said. “I absolutely adore the cerebral humor.” Noted intellectual (and former game show host) Ben Stein agreed with her assessment, adding his own accolade, “I love that fact that he assumes his audience has a brain!”

Coming from an Ivy League presidential pundit, that’s high praise indeed for someone who never set foot in college. “It was a great moment,” Tim says. And it’s exactly the response he’s hoping for each and every time he takes the stage. “That’s what I’m striving for. I provide you with two-thirds of the joke, and you provide the other third. It’s like ‘do-it-yourself’ comedy. Tim appeared on Star Search and most recently on Last Comic Standing in 2014 as well as opening for such comedians as Rodney Carrington, Bill Engvall, Larry The Cable Guy and Ron White.

Chris Stapleton

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

The raw power of Chris Stapleton's voice grabs you the moment he starts to sing. The award winning singer/songwriter has been described by some of today's most credible artists, including Adele, Sheryl Crow, Luke Bryan and Vince Gill, as the best voice in Nashville, and that whiskey-soaked sound with its punch-you-in-the-gut soul, is the standout focus of his first studio album for Mercury Records.

A native of the small town of Staffordsville, KY (pop: 2400) and son of a coal miner, Stapleton made the move to Nashville in 2001 to learn the craft of songwriting and pursue a career in music. A decade later, he has scored four #1 country hits with songs penned for George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner, and has racked up over 170 album cuts for artists including Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Alan Jackson.

With a wide variety of personal influences ranging from traditional country and bluegrass to rock and roll and blues, Stapleton has had a diverse singing career since his arrival in Nashville that includes stints as lead vocalist for GRAMMY nominated bluegrass band The SteelDrivers and lead vocalist in the howling rock and roll band The Jompson Brothers. In Stapleton's own words he describes "my life has been one tucked neatly in the liner notes of other people's albums as a writer, musician or band member…until now."

Toro y Moi with Vinyl Williams

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, Chaz Bundick has been toying with various musical projects since early adolescence. Having spent his formative years playing in punk and indie rock acts, his protean Toro Y Moi project has been his vessel for further musical exploration since 2001. During his time spent studying graphic design at the University of South Carolina, Chaz became increasingly focused on his solo work, incorporating electronics and allowing a wider range of influences—French house, Brian Wilson’s pop, 80s R&B, and Stones Throw hip hop—to show up in his music. By the time he graduated in spring 2009, Chaz had refined his sound to something all his own, and music journals across the board touted his hazy recordings as the sound of the summer, and he released his debut album, Causers of This in early 2010.

Since then, Bundick has proven himself to be not just a prolific musician, but a diverse one as well, letting each successive release broaden the scope of the Toro Y Moi oeuvre. The funky psych-pop of 2011’s Underneath the Pine evinced an artist who could create similar atmospheres even without the aid of source material and drum machines. His Freaking Out EP, a handful of singles and remixes, and a retrospective box-set plot points all along the producer/songwriter spectrum in which he’s worked since his debut, and Anything In Return is another exciting offering that shows he’s still not ready to settle into any one genre.

Walker Percy: Faith, Philosophy and Fiction (A Visual and Textual Exhibit)

Presented by Aquinas College at Aquinas College Nashville

The Center for Faith & Culture at Aquinas College is currently hosting a visual literary exegesis on the life and work of author Walker Percy. The work, entitled "The Strangest Thing in the Cosmos: the Mystery of the Self in the Life and Works of Walker Percy," comprises 30 panels and was a joint venture between an English teacher and a pair of graphic designers.

Through an examination of Walker Percy’s life and literary work—both in fiction and non-fiction—Percy expert Thomas Tobin probes the questions that both haunted and comforted the author. The brother-sister duo of Dave and Kate Hazen give Tobin’s words a captivating graphical treatment.

The exhibit will run from the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19, through May 10, the 25th anniversary of the author’s death. The exhibit is self-guided and is located in the northeast hallway of the Aquinas College main building (as you enter the front foyer, turn right). From the first panel of the exhibit:

Walker Percy was a prominent American novelist and essayist from the publication of his first novel, The Moviegoer, in 1961 to his selection as Jefferson Lecturer for the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1989, shortly before his death. Although not young when he published his first novel (Percy was 45), his rise to prominence was rapid after he succeeded in publishing his fiction. The Moviegoer won the National Book Award in 1962 and between 1966 and 1987 Percy wrote five more novels, all of which received critical acclaim. The success of his fiction also drew fresh attention to his essays, many of which had been written prior to The Moviegoer and he was soon to establish himself as an influential essayist as well. Walker Percy’s work is difficult to classify and his quirky, unique style of constructing a novel was a factor in the surprise success of The Moviegoer – it was original, it worked, and it was hard to say why. He was a southerner and there were indeed southern subjects and themes in his work, but he was hard to label as a southern writer in that his particular philosophical concerns had no precedent in southern literature and his plots sometimes resembled those of Albert Camus more than those of William Faulkner. So was he an existentialist writer? Perhaps he was in that he sought to examine the predicament of the alienated person in the modern world, but he was also very funny and ultimately he was very hopeful – two terms that fail to describe the writing of Sartre and Camus. So was he a Catholic writer? Percy was a convert and remained a strong Catholic until his death, but any Catholic who picks up his novels expecting a simple affirmation of faith would most likely be baffled and confused. His main focus was on exploring the open-ended mystery of the human person and he did not seek to comfort believers or to proselytize. Although there are many aspects of Percy’s writing that make his work attractive, his particular genius was that he could make you, his reader, feel a new fascination for the strangeness of your own being. If you engage Walker Percy’s work seriously, you are changed. You can no longer take for granted that you are a clearly defined being plugged into a world that more or less makes sense. You are aware that your humanity is indeed “the strangest object in the Cosmos” and the world around you is in many ways constructed to suffocate and avoid the questions that our being provokes. As the exhibit will show, the insights that fill the pages of Percy’s work were not won lightly. He was a man who suffered a great deal in his youth and bore deep scars from the traumatic events that marked his adolescence. This suffering launched him on a quest for meaning that always remained personal, but broadened into an intense engagement with the dominant ideas and social currents of the twentieth century. He engaged his life and his time with a powerful intelligence, great courage and a sense of humor. His insights about what it is to be human in the modern world are always intertwined with an intense personal quest for meaning that make them all the more compelling.

About Thomas Tobin

Mr. Thomas Tobin is a graduate of Georgetown University with a B.A. in English Literature.  He has subsequently done graduate work at George Washington University and the University of Maryland. He taught literature at the high school level for the last twenty years, designing literature curriculum and teaching in the International Baccalaureate Program and Advanced Placement courses. He currently teaches at The Avalon School in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He has a particular love of Walker Percy, a writer whom he cites as a major influence on his understanding of what makes a human being a human being and why it is so difficult to live in accordance with what we are in the modern world.

Steel Magnolias

Presented by Imaginary Theatre Company at Eastland Baptist Church

Imaginary Theatre Company presents "Steel Magnolias" April 24th - May 10th at Eastland Baptist Church. The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

The Cast:
Kate Adams – M’Lynn
Britt Byrd – Shelby
Heather Vaughn Alexander – Truvy
Angela Gimlin – Annelle
Beth Woodruff – Clairee

Nashville Sunday Night | ELEL

Presented by Lightning 100 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 from 8-10pm.

Nashville 8-piece ELEL had a big summer. Their debut track ” 40 Watt”, an effervescent blast of feel good indie pop, drew comparisons to the likes of Vampire Weekend and MGMT, winning over a slew of blogs, radio stations (Alt Nation, WFUV, KCRW) and affording them the opportunity to perform at Bonnaroo Festival, SXSW and Treefort Music Festivlal. The band are set to release their debut EP on Mom + Pop Music this March.

ELEL, consisting of two horns, two drums, three keys ,guitar, bass and whole lot of vocals, was born from front man Ben Elkins meeting a girl named Elisa. Ben’s now wife softened his edges while introducing him to the likes of Beach House and Toro Y Moi. Speaking on ELEL, Ben says “ It’s the outcome of me producing music that risks leaving space and communicates emotion easily and softly.” This band represents a new start for its members, for a variety of reasons. Tied together by the bustling Nashville music scene but from an array of locations, ELEL includes Ben (Arkansas), Zach (Kentucky), Tim (Mississippi), Jo Jo (Queens, NY), Alex (Pennsylvania), and life-long Nashvillians (so far) Frederick, Jerry and Stefan. According to Ben, “40 Watt is a big loud dance song about dancing with one other person in a little bitty house.’ We have more exciting news very soon.

Nightwish with Delain

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Nightwish begin 2013 with a bang, as the band hop on a plane immediately after the New Year celebrations to tour Australia and New Zealand, exchanging the Finnish winter for the record heat wave of Australia.

While the spring is quiet on the live front, there's laurels to be collected: in the Finnish Emma Awards in March, Nightwish win the categories "Metal Album of the Year" and "Band of the Year". The movie "Imaginaerum by Nightwish" is also released in April in numerous formats.

The band hit the road again in May, playing four concerts in Japan. A Nightwish exhibition is opened in Kitee, Finland, where guests of the local history museum get to see artifacts connected to the band's history.

The second festival season of The Imaginaerum World Tour starts at Sauna Open Air in Tampere, Finland, and the highlights of the summer include Ilosaarirock in Joensuu, a "home festival" for the band, where they play in front of 25,000 people, Byblos in Lebanon, and Midnattsrocken in Lakselv, northern Norway.

There's excitement in the Nightwish camp in early August, as the concert at Wacken Open Air will be shot for the forthcoming live release. Over 80,000 fans witness a spectacular performance in northern Germany. A week later, the "Imaginaerum World Tour" that had ran for 18 months and over 100 concerts is capped off at the M'era Luna festival.

In September Nightwish get more well-earned recognition in Germany, as Metal Hammer magazine awards the band with the title "Best International Band".

In early October Nightwish fans are thrilled to hear the new line-up confirmed: having been accepted by the fans, Floor Jansen is expectedly announced as the new vocalist, and the British multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley, who has collaborated with the band for years, is simultaneously confirmed as a permanent member of the band.

Late November sees the release of "Showtime, Storytime", a DVD / Blu-Ray that, in addition to the spectacular Wacken performance, also features a two-hour documentary film "Please Learn the Setlist in 48 Hours".

The Who Hits 50!

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

THE WHO, one of rock’s most legendary and defining bands, will celebrate their 50-year legacy when they bring their “THE WHO HITS 50!” tour to North America in 2015.

Set lists on these shows will take  their audience on an “Amazing Journey” through THE WHO’s entire career, from the band’s early days to classic albums including WHO’S NEXT, TOMMY, QUADROPHENIA, MY GENERATION and LIVE AT LEEDS, through the present day.

THE WHO have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964; they brought together four different personalities and in effect produced a musical hurricane.  Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger. They exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. As they enter their 50th year, the band is still going strong, winning rave reviews for their performances of QUADROPHENIA in 2013.

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

THE MAINE with Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, and The Technicolors

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Despite sharing their name with a northeastern state, the Maine formed in 2007 in Tempe, AZ, a collegiate suburb of Phoenix. Most of the bandmembers -- singer John O'Callaghan, guitarists Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco, bassist Garrett Nickelsen, and drummer Pat Kirch -- were in high school at the time, and the guys wasted little time turning their '90s radio rock band influences into a familiar, infectious pop-punk sound. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and released a five-song concept EP, The Way We Talk, in 2007. After performing on the Vans Warped Tour one year later, the group issued a full-length debut album, Can't Stop Won't Stop, which was produced by emo-pop veteran Matt Squire. The record peaked at number 40 on the Billboard charts and caught the ear of Warner Bros. Records, who signed the Maine to a major-label contract in 2009. After releasing a deluxe version of Can't Stop Won't Stop later that year, the group returned to the studio, eventually emerging in 2010 with the sophomore album Black & White. That year also marked some new developments for the band: their first headlining tour, and album of the year accolades for Black & White from Alternative Press. The Maine offered full-length Pioneer in December 2011. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Tony Lucca

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

He was cast by Justin Timberlake to play “the cool guy” in Timberlake’s directorial debut.

He finished third on The Voice in 2012, won a record deal in the process, and received more press coverage than any contestant on the show that season… or any season, for that matter.

He made a record with Adam Levine, then toured with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson.

He was cast on the hit show “Parenthood” playing himself as a rock singer, and performed an original song.

He even starred in an Aaron Spelling prime-time drama and dated Keri Russell for years, winding up in countless gossip mags.

His name is Tony Lucca. So why isn’t he a household name? Maybe he simply hadn’t made the right record before. This time, Lucca believes he has.

It’s his 8th full-length studio album, his first self-titled release, and first entirely self-produced effort. “We went in with the intention of making a record that was as live-sounding as possible. I wanted to close my eyes and be able to visualize the players in the room or up on the stage, actually playing the songs together. One guitar over here, the other guy over there, bass, drums, some keys? I mean, that’s the rock-n-roll I fell in love with when I was a kid.” Lucca pulls inspiration from the heroes he heard on the radio growing up, from Tom Petty, Billy Squier to AC/DC’s Angus Young, tapping into a sense of timelessness he places somewhere between The Black Crowes and the Black Keys. Each of the 12 songs on “Tony Lucca” are deeply personal.

The record kicks off with “Old Girl”, Lucca’s rebuff to the music business treadmill. On the upbeat “Imagination”, Lucca recalls the evening where he met his wife… to the best of his ability. Lucca’s fans will enjoy the diverse sonic quality of four of his trademark ballads – the epic and sweeping piano-driven “North Star”, the optimistic “Smoke ‘Em”, the push and pull of love lost and found in “Right On Time”, and the sweet album closer that bares his daughter’s name, “Sparrow”. Funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign (one that hit its $25K funding goal just inside of 30 hours), Lucca feels strongly that his fans stepped up so that he could make the best record he possibly could – one he could finally feel comfortable releasing with his own name as the title. To that point, Lucca says “this record is pure. And honest. And hopefully completely refreshing to its listeners."

Rik Roberts School of Laughs Comedy Class Graduation

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Born in Lexington, KY, Rik was instilled with down home values and the type of politeness and courtesy you get used to in a small town. After graduating High School, Rik earned a bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Bethany College in West Virginia.

He started his comedy career in Columbus, OH while working a day job at Simon & Schuster Publishing. Early comedy experiences included landing a spot with the nation’s top touring improvisation comedy troupe “Midwest Comedy Tool & Die.”

Beginning in 1997, Rik started headlining at America’s top comedy clubs. Nearly ten years later Rik has become a favorite at The Improv, The Punchline, Funny Bone, The Stardome, Zanies– you name it! It was this background that led to his current career of corporate entertaining.

Rik moved to Nashville in 1998 and turned up the heat on his career. He quickly appeared in videos on Great American Country. He began regular appearances on syndicated morning shows. His dedication to “clean” comedy earned him an episode of the Emmy award winning “Bananas Family Comedy” show. Shortly after that he was tapped to expand his Barney Fife Impression on “Comedy at Large.”

Rik enjoys spending time with his wife and their new baby boy. Watch for his upcoming documentary “Daddy’s First Year” – a humorous look at the preparation a father-to-be makes before and the adjustments that follow childbirth. He also enjoys teaching comedy classes at his home club “Zanies” in Nashville, TN.

Kelsea Ballerini with Hailey Steele & Carly Pearce

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

Knowing what lies in one’s heart and chasing that vision is how dreams come true. As a young girl growing up in Knoxville, TN, Kelsea's vision did not include the wedding dress and white picket fence that her friends talked about. Instead, Kelsea was dreaming up wardrobe changes and stage sets for the major tour she knew she would embark upon one day. As she launches her debut single on Black River Entertainment, Kelsea is entering country music authentically with a song she co-wrote.

Armed with a penchant for songwriting, Kelsea took her first steps into the recording studio when she was 14. Her mom had given her the studio time as a birthday gift with the intention of simply recording some of Kelsea’s songs so that she had a way to look back on them; however, the opposite happened and her passion deepened. This first studio experience also led to Kelsea’s introduction into the music industry. A representative from the recording studio was visually moved by her performance. Kelsea made that first trip to Nashville and recorded a demo session. After a second trip, a broken-hearted Kelsea left without the record deal that she anticipated.

Heartbroken, Kelsea cancelled her second label meeting and went home. A few weeks later she had a change of heart when she realized her dreams were still very much alive.  Instead of trying to write what was already out there, Kelsea looked for influences at her roots, going back to listening to Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra. She began to find her voice when she stopped focusing on being commercial and started being Kelsea. At this point, Kelsea’s music came alive.

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.

Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Rock legends Pat Benatar & Neil “Spyder” Giraldo have just announced plans to keep their 35th Anniversary Tour rocking fans through the summer with an additional 35 concerts added coast to coast.   The powerhouse duo behind one of the largest arsenals of rock hits including "Love is a Battlefield", "Hit Me with Your Best Shot", "Heartbreaker", "We Live For Love", "Promises In The Dark," "We Belong," and more will be headlining solo concerts nationwide -- as well as joining forces with Cher this spring, and co-headlining a just announced summer tour with Rick Springfield.

Together, with Benatar's mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo's trail-blazing work as a guitarist, producer and songwriter, Pat Benatar and Neil “Spyder” Giraldo have forged one of the most successful partnerships in rock & roll history.  Since their initial collaboration 35 years ago on the debut album "In The Heat of the Night," they have sold more than 26 million albums and charted 19 Top 40 singles, earning four consecutive Grammy Awards and three American Music Awards. 

Billboard Magazine ranked Benatar as one of the most successful female rock vocalist of all-time.  Her emergence as a fearless, fighting force has helped forge a path for other female rock stars around the world.  In addition to the arsenal of more then 100 songs he's written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, Giraldo's helped create hits for legions of other artists including John Waite, Rick Springfield (No. 1, Grammy-winning classic “Jessie’s Girl and Top Ten hit "I've Done Everything for You"), Kenny Loggins and more. Theirs is a chemistry that will, undoubtedly, be thrilling music lovers forever.

The Jack Pearson Band

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Former guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band, Jack Pearson has been playing professionally since the age of 15. Although he may be best known as an A-list blues/rock lead and slide guitarist, Jack is also a soulful, creative songwriter, producer and artist in his own right.

As a songwriter and solo artist, his songs are moving and honest while his grooves make it hard to sit still for very long. Jack’s lyrics often reflect hope and redemption, reminding the listener never to give up no matter how heavy their burdens. His lyrical and musical hooks have also led to cuts by other artists.

Adept at many musical genres and instruments, he possesses the ability to take each to a higher level. His playing is sophisticated while full of intensity and passion, leaving audiences cheering and musicians smiling - shaking their heads in disbelief at his seemingly effortless skill and talent. Blues Revue calls him a “world-class guitarist” and Rolling Stone brags on his “light touch and fluid, jazzy style…dynamic slide playing”.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Young Fathers

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Young Fathers are DEAD.

Or, rather, DEAD is Young Fathers. Their first full-length album, released in February, 2014, on Anticon and Big Dada has been given the kind of critical appraisal normally held hidden in the filing cabinets of dusty music journos and only brought out, along with the bottle of fine blended whisky for those special occasions, those special rock occasions. You know the kind, when a credible bunch of guitar, bass and drum twenty-somethings from some northern town in the UK or from Indianapolis USA put something together in the studio that reaches out and reminds everyone that modern life isn't rubbish. Which is a weird reaction for a group who sit in some non-categorisable space between genres ancient and modern, who take hiphop and pop and dip it in a tie-dye mix of Ronnettes and krautrock and ragga and dub and post-punk and afropsych… and make something, something, something.

Many years before dropping DEAD the three individuals who became Young Fathers were apprentice young men. 14 years old, meeting in a sweaty dancing circle in the infamous original Bongo Club in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. Moving to the in-your-face beats of early noughties hiphop, R&B and Dancehall and then at the end of the night, agreeing to meet at solemn faced would-be producer G's house, to 'make records' on an ancient karaoke machine. The three of them, already looking like their future selves: Alloysious, city street holy man, sad eyes to the stars, past of the Liberian war atrocities buried in childhood scar tissue; Kayus, face exploding from frowns to huge laughter, pure naija boy on the outside but reflective and always feeling far away from his Nigerian home on the inside; and G, quietly watching and waiting for good things to come, practising the serious don't fuck street face for the neds where he grew up, but nurturing a heart of soul.

From the bedroom to the basement. It took them a few years before they found the small underground studio in Leith where they could perfect the uniqueness already nascent in the early days. Here they developed what they call, like the Sicilian mafia, 'our thing'. Recording processes that involve ritual, musical techniques more usually found in bebop jazz, playing with ways to write lyrics and tunes, scouring the further reaches and always recoiling from cliché. But always, always staying true to the Rules of Pop which demand hooks, energy, sparkle, accessibility, passion and beats that vibrate below the waist. From this point came their first release, what was originally conceived as a mixtape, literally only available on individually recorded cassettes with hand printed sleeves: TAPE ONE was the moment, recorded in a week, ready to release in two.

Shortly thereafter, TAPE TWO was recorded and a deal with far-out Los Angeles hiphopping label, Anticon inked. TAPE TWO took the dirty mounds of its predecessor and moulded beautiful sand sculptures, sealed by the sea, with the same processes, the same inspiration, gone deeper, gone darker. A year after its release TAPE TWO wins the Scottish Album Of The Year Award (2014), an indication, perhaps, that people are really starting to get it. YFs are just happy more people are listening, even if that 20 grand prize money does come in handy for debts and mashed up gear. And a final, critical tick from the music business comes at the end of summer when the album is nominated for a Mercury award.

Did I mention the live show? I don't believe so… on an insane tour of the USA, UK and Europe, heading over to Australia, Japan, Russia and then back to Europe. A huge 27-date UK & European tour preceded standout performances at SXSW, with a 33-date US tour supporting Anticon's Baths before playing a homecoming show at the Park Stage at Glastonbury. By the end of this year, YFs will have driven around the world one and a half times and flown it several times more. What happens? Each time they appear as a support, the headliner regrets and celebrates, because, if the headliner can't hope to make the desired impact after the explosion of uber-watt energy that is a Young Fathers show, they can at least reflect and bask in the knowledge that they were partly responsible for something special happening.

When they headline, they squeeze hours into 45 minutes and leave the audience exhausted from spectacle and bass, necks aching from craning, ears ringing and a delayed smile forming as they leave after pointless demands for more. (Of course, YFs never give more, because they have given all they have).

Sounds like hyperbole? Read the reviews… The Guardian were particularly kind about DEAD, Alexis Petridis wrote: "Young Fathers have quietly constructed a strange and intoxicating musical universe that feels entirely their own" – Guardian 4/5 (Lead Review). I know the group intimately and yet they still shock me on a regular basis. Not with anything as base as the kind of look-at-me desperation of a shocking rocking Rocky Horror spit show, nor with pyro and cannons and strippers or any of the other circus tricks. Just with presence and passion and looking like that beamed in from another world lost aliens with a message of love type of group. With intense engagement… intense… the Johnny Rotten, Ian Curtis, James Brown kind. Taking that brief blast of special that is normally only allowed to boys from terraced houses for a couple of years before imp or exp-losion but YFs just, keep it going, impossibly, like an Ethiopian marathon racer. Which should be an indication, dear star watchers, that something special is happening.

OK, 850 odd words and still so much info to impart. How about… America, it's like jumping into a deep fat fryer, so many delicious possibilities, like: Jimmy Kimmel, set to take the crown of late night TV chat show hosts, who hosted Young Fathers in June, watched by the entire Anticon roster, performing with blood shot intensity after 24 hours of partying (yes, they party, seriously of course, as you ask) in Los Angeles. More America: the entire staff of KEXP in Seattle, cramming into the control booth and watching in awe during YFs' radio session there. If you know how many artists go through those doors you'll know what an accolade that is.

What about the BBC? How about all the love from Zane Lowe for the singles, not to mention the weekly shows they made for 1Xtra through October last year (2013) ? Episodes of some outer space Dada drama slotted in amongst all the herbal urban clichés. How about being banned by the beeb? Queen Is Dead, from TAPE TWO, officially banned just in case the Queen of Britain pops her clogs at the moment of spinning.

Time to round it up and leave all the untold good stuff for another time. Now signed with Big Dada, Young Fathers are already recording the next album, printing more of their iconic T-shirts (have you got one yet? You'll probably have to wait), making more videos, sweating their way through the summer festivals, ignoring stupid borders and other constraints in order to bring it, whatever it is, to you. ENDS

Junior Brown

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Following years as Austin's best-kept secret, then a few more as the town's one must-see act for visiting musicians and label heads, Junior Brown and his music have since found an audience far beyond the Lone Star border. Junior's first two albums (12 Shades of Brown and Guit With It) have helped establish him as a crowd favorite from Texas roadhouses to the hippest clubs of New York City and Europe. There's usually a wide-eyed look accompanying one who witnesses Junior's unique instrumental prowess for the first time... or the second, or third, for that matter. Junior invented his own guitar, one that combines the standard 6-string guitar and the steel guitar. He calls it the "guit-steel."

Collie Daily and Sissy Wilson, co-chairs of the 2015 Nashville Symphony Fashion Show, have proudly announced that the 10th edition of the event will feature the designs of Brunello Cucinelli, through a partnership with Jamie Inc. The annual event, one of Music City’s leading runway shows, will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

Government Cheese “The Late Show” Record Release Party with Will Hastings

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

GOVERNMENT CHEESE brought punk rock to a small sleepy southern Kentucky town of Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1985. For 7 years they traveled in vans as they played all over the American south and worked their way as far north as NYC and as far south as Texas. After making it briefly onto MTV. Several of their songs – “Camping on Acid,” “Mammaw Drives the Bus,” “Fish Stick Day” – made it onto the national college charts.
20 years later, college and high school students treasure their memories of growing up dancing to Government Cheese. The band broke up in 1992, but many reunion gigs have happened since then. Their story has been immortalized in the cult classic book “Cheese Chronicles: The True Story of a Rock and Roll Band You’ve Never Heard Of” written by Cheese co-founder Tommy Womack.

Telling Tales Film Series: Gangs of New York

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

The exhibition Telling Tales explores how nineteenth-century Americans represented themselves. This film series looks at how some movie directors chose to represent archetypal heroes and villains from American history and literature by casting Irish actor Daniel Day-Lewis in leading roles. Famous for living in character during lengthy shoots, Day-Lewis has played some of the most charismatic historical personages, both fictional and real, in contemporary cinema. Join us for a salute to our favorite face of American history on film. Look for announcements about prescreening fun on the Frist Center website.

Telling Tales Film Series: Our Hero: Daniel Day-Lewis and American History on Film

With the help of a beautiful pickpocket and an army of colorful allies, Vallon fights his way to power in New York City during the era of corrupt Tammany Hall political bosses and seething race and class conflicts. Featuring a powerhouse of actors, including Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill, the film was nominated for ten Academy Awards. Directed by Martin Scorsese. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Cameron Diaz.

Presented by The Larry Keeton Theatre at The Larry Keeton Theatre

The Larry Keeton Theatre Announces the Larry Keeton Live Music Series.

Friday, May 15, it's a night of the New faces of Country with MamaDear and Carly Pearce.

Carly Pearce was born to the bluegrass sounds of Kentucky in the land that Keith Whitley, Bill Monroe, and the Judds hail from. She's got a pure tone and delivery that harkens back to artists such as the Dixie Chicks. The Judds. Sara Evans. Sonya Isaacs. Trisha Yearwood and Patty Loveless.

The trio of young singer/songwriters known collectively as MamaDear is creating a buzz and amassing fans up and down the east coast with their well-crafted original songs, exuberant stage performance and sterling harmonies. After meeting through a  mentoring group with award-winning songwriter Tom Douglas (“The House That Built Me”), Parker Bradway, Kelly Tillotson, and Daniel Wilson discovered that musical magic happened when they collaborated. From their decision to be a band, while gathered on a front porch in Nashville in 2012, to playing the AT&T Stage at CMA Fest 2014, MamaDear has stirred audiences with breath of fresh country air. This trio has traveled throughout the country, playing many colleges, clubs and other venues and opening up for bands such as Thompson Square, Will Hoge, and Jason Michael Carroll. ost recently, MamaDear was noted as the "Best Up-and-Comer" at CMA Fest 2014 on RollingStone.com. They have since signed on with Creative Artist Agency and Morris Higham Management.

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls with Made Violent and Billy The Kid

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

For three long and often lonely years of life on the road, plying a brand of honest and passionate folk/punk, Frank Turner continued to rise to prominence with an ever increasing following. But it was in the sweaty climes of the Lock Up Stage at Reading and Leeds 2008 that his solo career really started to take off. Inside the packed out tents, heaving with adoring fans and intrigued passers-by, Frank led the congregation in a mass sing-a-long; a stirring set that not only sparked the interest of the British mainstream but resonated unassumingly across the pond as a wealth of American punk bands watched approvingly from the sidelines.

No stranger to the festival, Frank had not only played the Lock Up Tent with former hardcore band Million Dead back in 2005 but also as a tentative solo artist in 2007 when debut album ‘Sleep Is For The Week’ was just an underground success. Within the following year, Frank’s popularity grew with yet more touring and the release of second album 'Love Ire & Song' in March 08. He started to play larger headline shows and develop the live band that he was looking for.

Their new effort, "Figures of the Year", comes on the heels of their west coast tour, opening for Anti Records artists The Milk Carton Kids from Denver to San Francisco to Vancouver. The record itself is a journey through a year, each song telling its part of the larger story, with both original and traditional numbers, complete with all the elements that make up the Barefoot sound: lush harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation, and memorable melodies.

Trisha Brown Dance Company: A Retrospective in Three Parts

Presented by OZ at OZ Nashville

“[Ms. Brown’s work] is unexpected, virtuosic, funny, arbitrary, subtle, detailed, poetic.” –The New York Times

Trisha Brown is recognized as an avant-garde and postmodernist choreographer whose more than forty-year contribution to contemporary dance has made a significant impact on the field. OZ Arts is proud to present two distinct evenings of performance by Trisha Brown Dance Company (TBDC), with works from the late 1960’s to 2011. Program A features multiple, iconic works created for the proscenium theatre. Program B employs the manicured grounds of OZ for a series of Brown’s “Early Works,” then moves into the Grand Salon, which will be transformed into a performance space with seating on two sides of the stage. In between these two main stage performance evenings, OZ Arts brings a live performance installation, Planes, to Nashville in collaboration with local contemporary dance collective New Dialect and Zeitgeist Gallery. Zeitgeist Gallery will host the multi-media installation from May 2 – 30, 2015, with weekly performances in the installation by New Dialect. A special performance evening featuring both New Dialect and TBDC dancers takes place on May 15, 2015.

Live Music

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

It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history.

TV On The Radio

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

TV on the Radio gets to do anything. Like a small platoon whose pleasing impenetrability is their core, the band consistently confounds expectations while managing to balance respect from critics and peers alike. The result is TV on the Radio gets to do anything they want. This freedom is their engine.

“It’s about doing what feels right,” says singer Tunde Adebimpe. “I really feel like this band is something that is expansive and always changing and growing. If we wear our influences on our sleeve, it’s a pretty crowded sleeve.”

It’s no different with Seeds, the new and fifth proper studio album that Adebimpe has made along with Jaleel Bunton, Kyp Malone, and David Andrew Sitek (who also produced it). Having long outlasted that early 2000s fascination with all things Brooklyn to which the hip willfully succumbed, they continue to conquer music on their own terms. This album serves as another step in continuing to heed their reputation as “the most vital, current band in America” (Associated Press).

This go-round the songs are immediate and triumphant, textured with storytelling hooks and possibly the most honest music this band has ever composed. They’ve hit a point where they’re OK being straight-up beautiful without having to manipulate prettiness into whatever unforeseen shape.

Slate says Seeds has “TV on the Radio’s best songs in years. They are sounding sharper than ever.” And the band knows it. Adebimpe has already said this is the band’s best record. Not a boast, just an observation.

“I feel like I knew it before we were done,” he says immediately. “I was so excited by the songs while we were making them, I wanted to get more and more and more into it. The general feeling going into it was, 'We're still here. Our friendship with each other is so strong. Being in a band, at its best times, is like being... well, let’s say whenever things are going really well, we're like ‘cool, Voltron's back together.’“

The TV on the Radio guys are the type of people who go on hiatus and focus on music. They may take time between albums for their other endeavors, but they know when it’s right to come together – especially when the music comes as easily and passionately as it did with case Seeds. The band found themselves collected in David Sitek’s Los Angeles studio last year and recorded a couple of songs – “Mercy” and “Million Miles” and didn’t want to stop.

“Those were just songs that we wrote because we hadn't written songs together in a while,” says Sitek. “They came out really fast and inspired us to do it again – and then ‘again’ turned into the record.”

Adebimpe and Sitek live in Los Angeles, Bunton and Malone reside in New York, but make no mistake: TV on the Radio is a quartet. To attempt to parse out exactly what each member does in the group would be to dismantle the fundamental essence of what makes TV on the Radio the monolithic anomaly they have been careful to cultivate and protect for more than a decade. They permeate beyond a wall of sound, and instead create a planetarium of music with every song. They embody many voices. Most of them can play just about anything. And sing too. They are equal partners in the creation of a type of noise that appeared seemingly out of nowhere over 10 years ago.

Throughout the years, TV on the Radio has been consistent in the standard they set for themselves. Earlier records, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babesand Return To Cookie Mountain stole the hearts of fans and critics alike just the same, winning the Shortlist Music Prize and Spin's Album of the Year respectively. Their breakout release Dear Science was named best album of 2008 by Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Spin Magazine, The New York Times, The Onion AV Club, MTV, even Entertainment Weekly. An embarrassment of riches, really. Their last album, 2011's Nine Types of Light, was deemed "pure heaven" by the cherubs at Rolling Stone, and earned the band a Grammy® nomination. The band has also graced the stages of Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report.

“The band is it’s own ‘self.’ It has to be that way,” Adebimpe says. “That's been the goal for a long time. Nobody really wants to be the focal point for the band; the band should be the focal point. Not even the band: the music. We can show up and take credit for it, but ultimately it's something that maybe we helped shape and facilitate coming into the world. But that’s all.”

They happily recruit likeminded associates to help prop up this invention of theirs in the studio and on stage. (Kelis, for instance, appears on “Lazerray”). The band has recorded and performed with other artists who’ve conquered the music world on their own terms just as much as they have. Fellow mavericks like Trent Reznor, Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fame, Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Martin Perna of Antibalas, Katrina Ford of Celebration, and David chuffing Bowie have all romped in the sandbox with TV on the Radio.

“If you share a material thing, it dissipates,” Adebimpe says, recalling a fragment of philosophy he once heard, or might be improvising on the spot. “If you share a spiritual thing, it just increases. It becomes more and more and more. I'm already thinking about the next record.”

Seeds is an expression of everything this band has been through in the last three years and more. They’re influential, in their prime, they’re TV on the Radio, and they’ve proven themselves to be one of the most important bands of this generation. It clicks, as it always does, and TV on the Radio is brand new again,again.

“No matter what you go through individually and collectively, when you step away from each other, you're kind of like, "I know that if we get together we can fire this thing," says Adebimpe. “It's definitely in the spirit of the punk rock we all grew up with. If you win, you're still a punk. If you lose, you're still a punk, and honestly, it's not about anybody else.”

Ellie's Run For Africa

Presented by The Mocha Club

First off, we’re more than a 5K race. 

Ellie’s Run for Africa is a local opportunity to walk alongside African children, raising funds for their education and giving them hope to get out of the slum. Through our fundraising efforts- which include the options to either run a 5K race and/or become an Ellie's Run Hero by donating monthly - we bring together people of all ages to Dream Big and Take Action to help Africa through our partnership with Mocha Club.

Ellie's Run For Africa began in 2004 with the dream of one child-- 10-year-old Ellie Ambrose of Nashville, TN. Ellie was moved to act after simply seeing photos of children living in the slums of Africa. To date, her dream has raised more than $500,000 and helped thousands of children go to school. All funds raised through Ellie's Run for Africa benefit Mocha Club's educational partner, New Dawn Educational Center in the Huruma slum in Nairobi, Kenya.

Ray Waddle speaks on Spiritual Politics

Presented by Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Congregation

Hosted by The L-Club, who is an informal association of people with liberal values who usually meet in homes to hear and discuss progressive thoughts. 

Ray Waddle was Religion Editor for 17 years and writes a religion column for the Tennessean presently. Ray Waddle has been writing about belief and doubt, poetry and politics, church and cataclysm, connection and disconnection for three decades now. He is editor of Yale Divinity School's award-winning Reflections journal, a publication that finds theological dimensions in current social issues. He is also a columnist on spiritual trends, author, husband, jazz acolyte, and fool for squash (the racquet sport, not the gourd). He teaches a writing seminar at Yale Divinity School during summer study term. He also leads retreats on poetry and theology.

He may bring copies of his new book, Undistorted God (Abingdon Press), which draws on his religious observations and encounters over the years to sort out what looks permanent and poetic about Christian belief now and what's a destructive waste of time. The book focuses on the renewing power of experiences such as bread and wine, earth and sky, music and silence, the image of God, the elusive meaning of church, and the never-fading notion that "God is God and we are not."

A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Ray has a journalism degree from the University of Oklahoma and a religious studies degree from Vanderbilt University.

 He has written for The New York Times, Huffington Post, Interpreter, Christian Century, Image Journal and many other places. He has written two other books, both for Upper Room Books: Against the Grain: Unconventional Wisdom from Ecclesiastes (2005) and A Turbulent Peace: The Psalms for Our Time (2003).

Presented by Nashville Zoo at Grassmere at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere

Avian Awareness Day highlights the journey of migratory birds as they make passage between their breeding grounds in North America and their wintering grounds in Central and South America. Educational stations will be set up throughout the Zoo that explore how birds navigate their way through various daily and annual challenges, and both kids and adults can enjoy comparing their “wing spans” to our feathered friends. Other activities include egg and feather displays, keeper talks and docent stations at many of our bird exhibits.

Avian Awareness Day celebrates International Migratory Bird Day (IMDB), an event founded in 1993 by a coalition of bird-minded organizations that recognized the need for a unified focus on the conservation of migratory birds.

For the 56 years the Cat's been on the page, we could never get rights to put him on our stage. We've asked quite politely, we've pleaded just so, but the answer was always, no, no, no, no, NO! Now, thanks to the National Theatre of Britain, at last a stage version has finally been written -- With no added text (lots of mime, dance and movement) and Seuss illustrations (which need no improvement!). The Cat in the Hat will be here in the spring, but he won't be alone, no, he's going to bring Dick and Sally, The Pink Fish, Thing One and Thing Two, they're all going to be here, so how about you?

Jazz on the triangle May Concert ft. Rod McGaha

Presented by Church of the Holy Trinity at Church of the Holy Trinity (Holy Trinity Episcopal Church)

The annual series Jazz on the Triangle celebrates its Twentieth Season at the Church of the Holy Trinity. Our second concert features trumpeter Rod McGaha. In addition to being a gifted jazz trumpet player, the multi-talented Rod McGaha is a composer, vocalist, lyricist, and producer. McGaha was born and raised in Chicago, where his jazz-loving father would play Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong records constantly, perking up his son's interest in music. Straight out of high school, McGaha began his professional music career, touring with Gene Chandler, before attending Northeastern University in Chicago and then DePaul University on scholarship, during which time McGaha became interested in traditional jazz. He has been a sideman for Kenny Rogers, Bebe and Cece Winans, the O'Jays, Take 6, and Lou Rawls, and racked up multiple awards as a jazz trumpeter. In addition to playing with others, McGaha has issued a few solo albums on his own. Rod is one of Nashville’s favorite jazz artists, and you are sure to want to hear this concert.

The 4:00 pm concert will be followed by a reception in the Church's Parish Hall.

Rich Guzzi Comedy Hypnosis Show

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Watch as Rich invites volunteers from the audience to get hypnotized on stage and be amazed at what happens next when he gives them suggestions to do the most outrageously funny things you can possibly imagine. This Adult clean show is done with just the right amount of innuendo. Laugh till it hurts with this non stop roller coaster ride that will have you and your friends coming back over and over again to try it for yourself. The Rich Guzzi Comedy Hypnosis Show is actually three shows in one because Rich is part standup comic, part master hypnotist and part motivational speaker. He becomes the Swiss army knife of the stage every night as he relentlessly tours the country and cutting the crowd to ribbons. The show becomes a rock concert when Guzzi invites people from the audience on stage to participate in the hypnosis part of the performance. “It’s not your average comedy show” says Rich “When I did only stand up, the attention was all on me and what I was going to say next, now everyone is focused on their friends on stage. It becomes personal, making it thousands of times more powerful and of course, funny!” Don’t be misled, Rich Guzzi is still a standup comic and that is what sets his hypnosis show apart from the rest which is quite evident as soon as he hits the stage. Even his preliminary talk about hypnosis hits the funny bone hard and with all the jokes and facial expressions added throughout the show there is no mistaking his comedy roots. Rich also makes time in his show to bring awareness to the benefits of hypnosis. “In the end, all I really want to do is help people” says Guzzi in his unmistakable New York accent. “I am like a cross between Tony Robbins and Tony Soprano and the show as funny as it is its still only a demonstration of what you can do with this powerful tool.” The Rich Guzzi Comedy Hypnosis Show is standup comedy, hard-hitting hypnosis show and self-help seminar with some special surprises. Sounds like an offer you can’t refuse.

**If you are looking for the XXtreme Hypnosis shows, They are the LATE SHOWS ONLY Fri@9:45 & Sat@9:15 **

Sam Prekop

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Regardless of the style he is working in, Sam Prekop's music is always imbued with a sense of wide-eyed discovery and exploration. As the singer and guitarist of The Sea and Cake, Prekop has incorporated elements of traditional styles from around the world, expanding the public perception of what it means to be the leader of a pop band. In recent years, he has also established himself as a modular synthesist, building his instrument meticulously to find the perfect combination of oscillators, sequencers, limiters and filters to create a system that allows him to create sounds that are surprising and inviting. His new album The Republic is his latest synthesizer work, following 2010's Old Punch Card, and showcases Prekop's talent for creating expressive music through mechanical patterns, repetitions, and chance. Prekop's innate gifts of melodic turns of phrase that have made him a revered songwriter are transferred into new forms in his synthesizer work, aided by the unpredictable melodic capabilities of analog sequencers, and The Republic is an exciting new chapter in his development as an accomplished synthesist. The first half of The Republic consists of songs that were originally created as a score for a video installation of the same name by David Hartt, which was shown at the David Nolan Gallery in New York. These pieces strike an impressive balance between control and spontaneity, seamlessly transitioning from abstraction and discord into passages of blissful harmonic consonance. The second half of the record consists of some of Prekop's most warm and inviting synth work yet, built using ideas that worked better on their own as opposed to accompanying the installation. These songs have a sense of forward motion that is often missing in many recordings by modern modular synthesists, which Prekop attributes to his incorporation of the instrument into his writing process for The Sea and Cake's acclaimed 2012 album Runner. The Republic is an entrancing album that moves Prekop's synthesizer compositions further into the realm of the accessible without abandoning the experimental legacy of the instrument. The Republic was recorded in Prekop's home studio in Chicago during the early months of 2014. Although he has primarily only performed synthesizer sets in Chicago, in part due to the extensive process of setting up and dismantling the instrument, he plans to perform works incorporating elements of The Republic throughout the US in 2015.

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.

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.

Sons of Zevon Present 1972

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

Sons of Zevon Present 1972 featuring Jamie Rubin, Audley Freed, Kevin Hornback, Jen Gunderman, Marc Pisapia. and Very Special Guests

Sons Of Zevon began as an informal gathering of musicians in Nashville who paid tribute to the recently deceased Warren Zevon by playing an entire night of his songs at their local pub, The Family Wash. Family Wash owner and singer/guitarist Jamie Rubin, guitarist Reeves Gabrels, and bassist Kevin Hornback organized the evening, and although it was meant to be a one-night-only event, they had so much fun that Neil Young and Tom Petty nights soon followed. One night, some of the band members were talking about the great diversity of radio in the 1970s, and the current objective of the band was born: choose one year from the 1970s, and play a variety of songs that came out that year, from rock, pop, and R&B artists, from big hits to deep tracks.

Nashville Sunday Night | The Bros. Landreth with special guest John Oates

Presented by Lightning 100 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 from 8-10pm.

Twenty-seven years. Four bandmates. Two brothers. One album.

Let It Lie, the debut release from Canadian roots-rockers the Bros. Landreth, is proof that there's strength in numbers.
?Anchored by the bluesy wail of electric guitars, the swell of B3 organ, and the harmonized swoon of two voices that were born to mesh. At first listen, you might call it Americana. Dig deeper, though, and you'll hear the nuances that separate The Bros. Landreth — whose members didn't grow up in the American south, but rather the isolated prairie city of Winnipeg, Manitoba — from their folksy friends in the Lower 48.

Where does the sound come from? Maybe it's in their blood. After all, long before they made music together, siblings David and Joey Landreth attended their father's bar gigs as babies.

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

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.

Caroline Rose

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

A self-proclaimed “failed scholar and modern-day hobo,” 24 year-old Caroline Rose has broken her long string of short circuits with a live-wire national debut, I Will Not Be Afraid (August 19th / Little Hi! Records) that draws on her roots in rockabilly, vintage country, and blues to capture her unique and distinctive vision. Written and arranged by Rose and co-produced with multi-instrumentalist Jer Coons (with Pat Melvin on bass), I Will Not Be Afraid chronicles Caroline’s wandering years; a disillusioned youth constantly demanding freedom and the most from life.  Raised in the Northeast (and currently living in her van), Rose is a rare mix of Northern grit and Southern charm whose musical influences trace back to her family’s Southern roots, running deep into the heart of Mississippi.  “You can hear my history in the music,” Rose says. “It’s a bit rough around the edges, a bit wild, but American music through and through.”

Rubblebucket with Vacationer

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Rub-ble-buck-et [ru-bul-buck-it] Noun 1. A vessel in which workers collect waste materials on a construction site; We need a rubblebucket for all this rubble. 2. A wild art-pop band from Brooklyn, NY; I'm jonesing for the new Rubblebucket album ‘Survival Sounds’. 3. The condition of having hard nipples, or riding a mean yes wave; He has great Rubblebucket. Verb 4. The act of uncrossing one’s arms and letting loose, while strange, new feelings and sounds flood mind and body, leading to uncontrollable dancing, possible injury and definite sweat; Man, we really put the rubble in the bucket last night.

My experience with Rubblebucket goes way back – to the summer of 1987, when I was born and first met lead singer and baritone saxist Kalmia Traver, then four. Kalmia was already well on her way to being a multi-instrument prodigy (penny whistle, recorder, alphabet burping), and I was already drowning in the ginormous shadow that she cast just by breathing. When she put our brother in a dress, blonde wig and heels, let me put on his lipstick, then forced his elastic micro-limbs into a diva pose, I knew she was a natural performer.  Kalmia met Alex Toth (band leader, trumpeter, guy, brother-from-another-mother, Jersey) in a latin jazz combo in Burlington, VT. I’m assuming she also dressed him in drag, because he liked her and they became friends, painting the town with their loud horn playing. In 2006, they moved to Boston, where they did respectable things for money. Kalmia nude modeled for art classes, and Alex was hustling marching band gigs at $50 a pop, for which he was required to wear a black shirt and march around for six hours at a time OR NO PAY NO WATER NO DINNER. It was like that scene in Oliver Twist. Naturally, out of this hot, tarry, magical, broke-ass time, Rubblebucket emerged like a huge, slippery, post-afrobeat baby. Alex had met trombonist Adam Dotson at one of these marching gigs, and the three began composing and playing the first songs in Rubblebucket’s repertoire. Soon, they were joined by three more friends – guitarist Ian Hersey, drummer Dave Cole, and 15-seater van Puppy – and started taking the Rubblebucket show on the road.  The first time I heard Rubblebucket perform live, two things happened: I realized this was the coolest thing on earth, like the lovechild of a unicorn and the Tom Tom Club, and I asked them if I could sell their merchandise at shows. You know what they say – those who can't do, sell merch. Night after night, standing behind that table of CDs, thongs and beer cozies, while Rubblebucket transformed the crowd from a skeptical wall of people into one big, happy, silly, jiving, open-hearted mass was an unforgettable experience. Their music does that – it just does. You can’t know it until you see it. And everyone who sees it, knows it. Like Paste, who said it best: “music that will make anyone with a pulse dance.” (I’ll annotate this by extending it to you pulse-less readers. You, zombie. I know you’re out there.) The Rubblebucket condition has spread, melting cares in its way. It barges in like an escaped rhino and triggers everyone, everywhere, to let loose and feel. Arm-crossing be damned!  I’ve been to many Rubblebucket shows. But it wasn’t until I was mid-crowd in NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and heard a guy in front of me say to his friend “the singer looks so hot tonight” (but? Gross? That’s my sister?) that I knew Rubblebucket had made it. The experts will tell you that, actually, this was when they released their 2011 album Omega La La, with its headlining tracks “Came Out of Lady” and “Silly Fathers,” and reached a whole new, larger audience. Or, when they flew out to LA to play on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and got free pizza and Alex almost puked backstage. Or, when their song “Came out of a Lady” appeared in the movie Drinking Buddies, and I was suddenly one giant leap closer to meeting Anna Kendrick (that’s when I knew I had made it). Or, when their green rooms started stocking guacamole. Or, when their 2012 and 2013 EPs Oversaturated and Save Charlie introduced fans to the next and the next evolution of Rubblebucket, and more and more people fell in love. Now, much to my drool and dire impatience, the band is hovering on the knife’s edge of their next highly anticipated album release, Survival Sounds (Communion Records, Aug. 2014). Prepare yourself, universe.  Rubblebucket is many things and nothing at all; it’s a mindset, a legend, a feeling, a mystery; a mischievous, playful, boundary-smashing blast of sound that you can sit still and wonder at, or turn off your mind and move wildly to. Or both at the same time. As Kalmia said, when she handed me one of her now-famous peanut butter, cheddar cheese, cabbage, honey tacos, “This is the weirdest, most delicious thing you will ever taste.” And if you won’t take it on my authority, take it on the authority of a small, but reputable publication called Rolling Stone, reporting from Bonnaroo: “Rubblebucket revved up like an indie-rock Miami Sound Machine, dancers, horns and all.” And if you won’t take it on Rolling Stone’s authority, cleave to the words of guitarist Ian: “Our music is like being at a raging party, but in the center of it, there’s this beautiful painting that you’re staring at, trying to wrap your mind around.” Or the words of our dad, Tim Traver: “Kids these days.”

Seether with Tremonti

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

On their sixth full-length album Isolate and Medicate, multi-platinum alternative rock trio Seether – Shaun Morgan [vocals, guitar], Dale Stewart [bass, backing vocals], and John Humphrey [drums] – strip their trademark melodic thrash to its core and deliver the most poignant, passionate, and powerful record of their illustrious career.  With rigorous minimalism and maturity, chief songwriter Shaun Morgan – long one of rock’s most unheralded melodists, has become a composer of deep emotion and clear-eyed vulnerability.  The band too has developed into one of rock’s most fearsome units, playing with precision, grit and authority, yet still light on their feet. After 15+ years of hardscrabble success, it’s evident that Seether felt like survival was not enough.  They had something to prove with this new album – somewhere farther to go.

Grand Ole Opry ft. Kellie Pickler, Craig Morgan, Trace Adkins, Lee Greenwood, Vince Gill 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: Kellie Pickler, Craig Morgan, Trace Adkins, Lee Greenwood, Vince Gill 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.

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.

Devour The Day

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Formed in 2012, Devour the Day was born from the brain trust of Joey Chicago (Bass, Vocals, Songwriter) and Blake Allison (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter, Producer). After success with the band Egypt Central, Blake and Joey sought to break out on their own, writing and producing music without compromise.

Joey explains, “Our lives got to a point in which we had lost trust. We lost our compassion, our feeling, and our way. The water was so murky that we didn’t know which way was up. What we did know is that we had to keep writing and keep fighting because that was our truth and our center.”

What transpired is a thirteen-song compilation entitled “TIME AND PRESSURE,” which is scheduled for release in early 2013. The song “GOOD MAN” conveys redemption and humility while bearing the questions, “Am I too far gone?” or “Am I even worth saving?” The religious undertones imply that there is hope for us all, no matter how our lives have become.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

The work of Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox has been viewed on the ensemble’s YouTube channel well over a hundred million times. Most of those doing the viewing, however, are not fully aware of the method to Bradlee’s madness. On the surface, the method is video – clips of full-band performances (that’s Bradlee on piano) shot in the bandleader’s living room with a single stationary camera. The madness: pop hits of the present performed à la pop hits of the past. Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” assayed as a doo-wop number; Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” tricked out in flapper jazz; Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” rendered a 1940s big-band standard. In fact, Bradlee’s method runs deeper. He’s educating his audience about 20th-century song styles; he’s commenting on the elasticity of the pop form; he’s confounding cultural context; he’s uniting generations; he’s breaking the rules. He’s manifesting postmodernist ideas in his approach to production and business as well as music. But as far as the fans are concerned, it’s just fun (and sometimes funny). Bradlee himself will tell you, simply, “I reimagine a song in  another style because I want to hear it that way.

Ministry

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Exit/In

No one wrestles victory out of the clenched jaws of defeat quite like Ministry leader Al Jourgensen. Heading into the studio to produce Ministry’s 13th official studio album, From Beer to Eternity, he and all the members of his team were beside themselves grieving the sudden and unexpected death of their longtime guitarist Mike Scaccia on December 22nd, 2013.  Last December, Scaccia worked with Jourgensen, guitarist Sin Quirin, drummer Aaron Rossi and bassist Tony Campos on a full batch of new Ministry songs. They finished the rough tracks on December 19th, 2012. Three days later Scaccia died from a heart attack he suffered onstage while playing a live show in Dallas, TX with his other band Rigor Mortis to celebrate their vocalist Bruce Corbitt’s 50th birthday. Scaccia was 47. Scaccia's death put a tragic end to all planned future projects: a second Buck Satan & The 666 Shooters album, a Chicago blues record and more thrash-based music. But the tracks Scaccia recorded before leaving Jourgensen’s 13th Planet Studio in El Paso, Texas were so good, so musically multifaceted and incisive, that From Beer to Eternity is destined to be the culminating audio release in the band's 30-plus year archive of industrial metal output.

Shakespeare in the Galleries

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

“Shakespeare in the Galleries,” the result of a new partnership between the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and the Nashville Shakespeare Festival, presents a unique performance alongside the works on view in Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th-Century American Art. This program features dramatic scenes and readings from the classic comedies, dramas, and poems that inspired early American artists. Featuring talented actors and unforgettable words by Shakespeare, Byron, and others, “Shakespeare in the Galleries” will not only offer a reunion between the works of art and the prose that inspired them, but also explore how these fanciful visual depictions often related subtly to contemporary concerns in America.

Country Cool: A Country Girl Can Survive Comedy Tour

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Karen Mills has been in the humor business for 21 years. As a stand up comedian, she has toured clubs, colleges and theaters across the country and can be heard daily on Sirius / XM Laugh USA, Blue Collar Radio, iHeart Radio and Pandora. As a speaker, Karen has delivered the keynote, spoken at survivor events, fundraisers, sports banquets and given commencement addresses. Whether she is touring theaters with her comedy show or speaking at conferences, Karen is a master at finding the funny in everyday life. That didn’t change when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Karen was determined to take on the disease with hope and humor and turn her pain into punchlines. Now cancer free, she has been hailed for her ability to bring humor to difficult topics as she recently did when she spoke at the National Alliance for Ovarian Cancer in Washington, D.C. 

Karen has faced every challenge with determination, she stands at 5’2” and was told more than once that she was too small to play basketball. Not only did she play, in 1981 she led the nation in assists and became the first, division 1 first team All-American in UT-Chattanooga’s history. She was the first UTC athlete to earn that distinction in any sport, male or female. Her #12 uniform was retired and she became the first female inducted into UTC’s basketball Hall of Fame.    Whether you are having a convention, a sales meeting, weekend retreat, or any other corporate or private function, laugh and be inspired as clean comedian Karen Mills brings your crowd together through the joy of laughter.  

Leanne Morgan:
One of the many great things about stand up comedy is the widely varied circumstances that lead people to jump on stage for the first time to tell jokes to entertain. The where, when, and how is often as intriguing as the comedy itself. For many it comes later in life after leading successful careers as teachers, lawyers, or corporate executives. What is more rarely seen is for a mother of three, living in rural Appalachia, who grew up on a farm within a truly extended family to find her way to the stage of stand up. Leanne’s journey into comedy is far from the standard profile but so intertwined into her act and success that it would be hard to imagine her starting any other way.
As a stay at home mother of three, Leanne was looking for a way to get some grown up time without interfering with her children or her husband’s career. She turned to selling jewelry at in home parties. Word of her wonderful sense of humor and intoxicating southern charm spread like wildfire and she was staying booked months in advance. She was so popular that local civic organizations would ask her to host and emcee various events. From here she was asked to entertain several local corporate events and a professional comedy career was born.

A move to Texas with her husband’s career opened many new opportunities for Leanne. While in San Antonio she was asked to appear in the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and appeared on ABC’s The View in a hilarious housewife segment.
Leanne’s style of comedy combines her southern charm and hilarious story telling about her own life into an act that keeps them coming back for more. People are always accusing her of spying on them because she seems to be living the same life that they do. The fact that everyone can relate to her comedy has made her a hit even among the strangest of audiences.
After returning to Knoxville, Leanne appeared as a finalist on Nick at Nite’s Funniest Mom and toured three years with the Southern Fried Chicks. She has appeared in comedy clubs, performing arts centers, and theatres all over the United States. She is currently under contract with Warner Brothers and ABC to develop a sitcom based on her comedy.

Salon@615: Sally Mann, Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs

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

Sally Mann (born in Lexington, Virginia, 1951) is one of America's most renowned photographers. She has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants, and her work is held by major institutions internationally. Her many books include What Remains(2003), Deep South (2005), and the Aperture titles At Twelve (1988), Immediate Family (1992), Still Time (1994), Proud Flesh (2009), and The Flesh and the Spirit (2010). A feature film about her work, What Remains, debuted to critical acclaim in 2006. Mann is represented by Gagosian Gallery, New York. She lives in Virginia.

In this groundbreaking book, a unique interplay of narrative and image, Mann's preoccupation with family, race, mortality, and the storied landscape of the American South are revealed as almost genetically predetermined, written into her DNA by the family history that precedes her.

for KING & COUNTRY

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Made up of Australian-brother duo Joel and Luke Smallbone, the pair relocated to Nashville in 1991 with their family.  Their father worked as a music promoter, so the boys often accompanied him to shows. In their teenage years, they also sang background vocals for their sister, gospel artist Rebecca St.  James. When Luke was 19 and Joel 21, the two formed a band and began the journey of writing and recording music.

Coming from that rich family heritage, the brothers also carry with them a mantra of sorts, speaking to a woman’s worth as well as encouraging themselves and other men to step up and stand out to proclaim that chivalry is  not dead. “Part of the DNA of for KING & COUNTRY is this idea of respect and honor in relationships and women being priceless,” Joel says.  “What we’ve both found in our beliefs as men is that people are made equal. No one is a commodity and everyone deserves to be loved and loved well.”

To Joel and Luke, remaining focused on what truly matters is crucial to succeeding musically.  “The best legacy I can leave is if I am a good dad and good husband.  If my family environment is out of whack, I don’t know if I’d even be able to write songs anymore,” says Luke.  “A lot of my passion and zeal for life is because I have a wife show counts on me and a son who looks up to me and says ‘Dada.’  I can’t believe how much love he has in his eyes when he says that word.  I can see the complete trust and safety that my son feels when he is with me.  When he began to walk, I often thought, if I could run wild like a one-year-old does and live a life that embraces adventure in that way, I think I would see life entirely differently.”

And therein lies the phrase that has ultimately become not only the title of their sophomore album, but also a statement of what it means to truly be alive.  Joel sums it up this way, “Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong.  Is a statement of reclaiming our birthright as humans, to live a life that is for others, and in that find what it truly means to run wild, live free and love strong.”

NPT Presents: Community Cinema: Limited Partnership

Presented by Nashville Public Television at Nashville Public Library - Main Library

Decades before The Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, one gay couple fell in love and took on the US government to fight for marriage and immigration equality. Filipino American Richard Adams and Australian Tony Sullivan met in 1971 in Los Angeles and quickly fell in love. In April 1975, thanks to a courageous county clerk in Boulder, CO, they became one of the first same-sex couples in the world to be legally married. Richard immediately filed for a green card for Tony based on their marriage. But unlike most heterosexual married couples who easily file petitions and obtain green cards, Richard received a denial letter from the Immigration and Naturalization Service stating, ”You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.”

Now in its seventh season in Nashville, Community Cinema is a screening series featuring upcoming selections from the PBS/NPT Independent Lens season. Presented in partnership with ITVS, local public television stations and leading community organizations, Community Cinema holds preview screenings and discussion in over 90 cities across the country, making a real contribution on a range of current social issues by connecting communities with organizations, information, and the opportunity to get involved. Join us for these upcoming screenings on Saturdays.

Sir Charles Jones and Karen Wolfe

Presented by Limelight Nashville at Limelight Nashville

Sir Charles Jones is an American Blues and Soul Singer.

Jones was born in Akron, Ohio. When he was young, his family moved to Birmingham, Alabama, where he was raised. It was in Birmingham where his singing career started. Jones taught himself how to write his own music, as well as arranging and producing it. In his early career, he worked under the guidance and tutelage of Marvin Sease. His style ranges from jazz to fusion, and from gospel to blues.

His first album, Sir Charles Jones, was released in 2000. A review in Living Blues praised Jones' vocals and stated, "for a largely-programmed effort, this disk percolates with sensuality and emotional heat." Jones' next album, Love Machine, spent 57 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, where it peaked at number 28 in June 2002. Living Blues credited the ballad "Is There Anybody Lonely?" for increasing the attention on Jones by soul and blues radio. The magazine added, "his success bodes well for the future of soul/blues as a viable contemporary music."

A motorcycle accident in 2003 left Jones in a coma for several days. After a long and full recovery, he released Thank You for Holding On in 2006. Two years later, he released a compilation album, My Story, and a music DVD, Sir Charles Jones: His Life & Times - Undisputed King of Southern Soul. - via Wikipedia.

Karen Wolfe recorded her first album with a Gospel Quartet group called "The Harmonettes", the CD was titled "Stop By Here". The group later changed their name to "Direction". Karen joined the Blues arena by singing background behind the Queen of Soul, the Legendary Denise LaSalle.

After listening to "Karen" sing, with the Queen of Soul, B&J Records executives, Bill Coday and Anna Neal Chew (also Denise LaSalle's road manager) approached her about signing a record deal with their label. - from Soul Blues Music.

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Memento Mori -- Looking at Death in Art and Illustration

Presented by Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery at Vanderbilt University - Fine Arts Gallery

Drawing on the combined resources of the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery, the Eskind Biomedical Library Special Collections, local museums, and several private collections, Memento Mori - Looking at Death in Art and Illustration will reveal multiple perspectives on the nature of death and our attempts to memorialize the dead in order to give meaning to their lives. The selection of artwork creates an interdisciplinary approach to our understanding of the role of death and mourning in society from the sixteenth century to the present.  The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. Memento Mori - Looking at Death in Art and Illustration will remain on view through May 23, 2015.

The oldest work in the exhibition is a second edition manuscript by Andreas Vesalius, de humani corporis fabrica (On the fabric of the human body), dating from 1555. It was the authoritative book on human anatomy for several centuries, and will be opened to a page showing a skeleton, acting alive save for its lack of flesh, that is reflectively pondering a human skull, perhaps an allusion to the temporal nature of life itself. This seminal example of medical illustration is a visual manifestation of the fact that, for many centuries, “medical exploration took place most frequently in the domain of death,” as Holly Tucker, one of the exhibition’s co-curators, writes in her book Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution. The piece, like many on display, is truly a blend of historic, artistic, and scientific study.

Material featured in the exhibition covers a wide range. Artworks and illustrations that span the past four centuries explore themes such as the Danse Macabre or Dance of Death, the medieval allegory of Death’s equalizing power, represented visually by a vivified skeleton. Additionally explored are deathbed scenes, a reminder of times when the end of life was often a gathering of family and loved ones, as well as images of the living mourning over those they have lost and art created as a memorial to those who have passed. Works included are by artists such as Ivan Albright, Andrea di Bartoli, Enrique Chagoya, Sue Coe, William Edmondson, Hans Holbein, Käthe Kollwitz, Georges Rouault, Thomas Rowlandson, Stephen Tourlentes, Andreas Vesalius, Werner Wildner, and Tsukioka Yoshitoshi.

With much thanks to partnering institutions and individuals, the exhibition also includes a rich display of material culture surrounding death and historical mourning practices. Perhaps the most striking of these are a silk mourning dress dating from 1909, a simple tombstone carved by the famous African American sculptor William Edmondson, and a death mask of the physiologist Jan Purkinje. The master craftsmanship that went into creating these items and others, such as intricately woven hair jewelry, remind us of the many forms of mourning and memorialization and complement the exhibition’s look at the linkages of medicine, life, and death through the ages.

MEMENTO MORI – LOOKING AT DEATH IN ART AND ILLUSTRATION  is organized by the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery and co-curated by Joseph Mella, director, Holly Tucker, professor of French Studies and professor of Biomedical Ethics and Society, Christopher Ryland, assistant director at the Eskind Biomedical Library, and James J. Thweatt, coordinator for historical collections at the Eskind Biomedical Library. The exhibition is supported, in part, by the Ewers Gift for Fine Art, with additional support provided by the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University.

Loretta Lynn In Concert

Presented by Loretta Lynn's Ranch at Loretta Lynn's Ranch

For fifty years now, Loretta Lynn has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful-and as culturally significant-as any female performer you'd care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner's Daughter-the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself-has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville super-stardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon.

Identity: An Exhibition of You - Opening Day

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Adventure Science Center

What makes you YOU? Identity: An Exhibition of You explores the physical, psychological and social elements in your life that make you tick. It’s an interactive look at how much of who you are is genetically influenced. Explore how the pattern of your fingerprints is genetic, but details–like the ridges–aren’t! Learn about new studies showing that there is no biological basis for race, and other research showing how we perceive differences in men and women where none actually exist. Identity creates an entertaining and interactive family experience that incorporates the latest scientific research to explore genetic, cognitive, and social sciences.

Special Activities on May 23 from 10:00am to 3:00pm:

  • Brain Basics: Explore the different lobes of your brain.
  • Are you a Supertaster?: Test your taste buds to see if you belong in the 25 percent of the population that has this genetic trait.
  • Take-Home Chromatography: Take home a simulation of a DNA affinity protein made right before your eyes!
  • DNA Extraction Necklaces: Leave wearing a necklace containing your own DNA!

Special Sci-Bites:

  • 1:30pm: It’s All in the Genes — Discover your common and not so common unique genetic “gifts” through a game of genetic bingo.
  • 2:30 pm: Brain Games — Explore all the nooks and crannies of your cranium while playing fun games that will put your whole brain to the test!

An exhibition developed and produced by The Franklin Institute.

This exhibit made possible in part through the generous support of HCA/TriStar Health.

Legend

Presented by The Belcourt at Belcourt Theatre

Many years ago, the earth was an idyllic land of unicorns and bright sunshine. But the forces of light become embroiled in mortal battle with the forces of darkness—specifically the evil Prince of Darkness (Tim Curry), who lives in dark caverns below the earth's surface and has nefarious plans to blot out the light of the sun and rule in a perpetual dark shroud of gloom and shadows forever. Into the breach comes peasant hero Jack (Tom Cruise), who sets up to defeat Darkness and let the sun shine through. He meets a young woman named Lili (Mia Sara) and they fall in love, but Lili is lured into the netherworld by a sultry priestess and has become evil herself. Jack sets his sights on the forces of evil and determines to defeat Darkness and save Lili in Ridley Scott's dark and visually striking fantasy.

Corey Holcomb

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Going from hanging in the hood to performing comedy on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show,” not to mention the privilege of afterward being invited to take a seat on the “couch” which not many comics are asked to do, has been a long and fulfilling journey. Corey hit his first open mic in 1992 when Adele Givens called him to the stage. He was a smashing success and has been a full-time comedian ever since. He has taken top honors at the Miller Genuine Draft Comedy Search, Budweiser Comedy Competition, Chicago Home Jam, and Laffapalooza. He has appeared at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and the Chicago Comedy Festival.

Corey’s comedy genius transcends class and racial divides. If you understand English, Corey’s humor will tickle your funny bone. People all over the world can relate to the drama of trying to make a relationship work. According to Corey, a “hunter” (man) being captured by his “prey” (woman) makes for the best comedy ever.

Nashville Sunday Night | Kaleo

Presented by Lightning 100 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 from 8-10pm.

Firmly a phenomenon in their home country of Iceland, the four-piece band Kaleo is set to descend upon foreign shores in 2015, bringing their gorgeous blend of folk, blues, country, and rock to a wider mainstream audience in America. Their isolated heritage inspires a unique take on familiar sonic elements, resulting in diversity and freedom on each and every breathtaking track.

Best friends since attending elementary school in the small town of Mosfellsbaer outside of Reykjavik, bandleader JJ Juliusson, drummer David Antonsson Crivello, and bassist Danny Jones began playing together at the age of 17. Honing their skills, they played countless shows around the nation’s capital for a few years before adding guitarist Rubin Pollock to the mix in 2012. They named the band Kaleo, which means “the sound” in Hawaiian, and started their career in earnest with a handful of well-received shows at the 2012 Iceland Airwaves music festival.

They recorded their first pair of original songs in early 2013, the fiery “Rock N Roller” and laid-back, bluesy “Pour Sugar On Me,” which earned Kaleo some radio airplay and press in Iceland. Then, that spring, their cover of the traditional Icelandic ballad “Vor í vaglaskógi” during a live radio show was videotaped and posted to YouTube, where it quickly went viral. The band recorded a studio version of the song in June, which went straight to Number One in virtually every radio station in the country. “It’s a different kind of cover, more dramatic and the tempo is taken down,” says JJ. The buzz for Kaleo had begun.

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

The Rentals with Rey Pila and Radiation City

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

The Rentals were the new wave-influenced project of singer/songwriter Matt Sharp, former bassist for power pop favorites Weezer. Born in Arlington, Virginia, on September 22, 1969, Sharp co-founded Weezer in 1992, and in the months to follow, the band emerged as one of the most popular up-and-coming acts on the Los Angeles club scene; their self-titled debut LP appeared on Geffen two years later, becoming a major hit thanks their smash single and video "Buddy Holly." During the spring of 1994, Sharp mounted the first Rentals studio session. Assembling a roster including Weezer drummer Pat Wilson, that dog. violinist Petra Haden, vocalist/keyboardist Cherielynn Westrich, and guitarist Rod Cervera, subsequent dates yielded the group's 1995 debut, Return of the Rentals, which notched a hit with the infectious "Friends of P." Sharp returned to Weezer to record the band's acclaimed 1996 follow-up, Pinkerton, but announced his exit from the lineup in February 1998; the second Rentals album, Seven More Minutes, followed a year later.

After a six-year hiatus, Sharp brought back The Rentals in 2005. After touring with Ozma in the summer of 2006, Sharp's group released the EP The Last Little Life in 2007. In December of the same year, The Rentals announced that they would begin recording a new album in 2008. The resulting Songs About Time, a 2009 multimedia project consisting of photographs, short films, and three mini-albums, was made available in a limited-edition deluxe box set in 2010. In April of 2011, the band released Present Resilience: A Benefit Album for the Japanese Relief. For the band's next album, Sharp chose ten songs from Songs About Time and re-recorded them with violinist Lauren Chipman, Ozma guitarist Ryen Slegr, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, and Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the group Lucius. Sharp recorded the basic tracks in L.A., then worked with Carney in Nashville and the Lucius vocalists in N.Y.C. After Sharp arranged the tracks, using some parts of the Songs About Time sessions as well, he turned the songs over to D. Sardy to mix. The resulting album, Lost in Alphaville, was released in late summer of 2014 by Polyvinyl.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

Come see the Song Suffragettes, Nashville's newest and brightest female singer-songwriters, in an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting.  Be the first to discover the next big stars of country music...and maybe a surprise special guest.  Every Monday night...only at The Listening Room Café!

Moonshine + Music (This is a First Come First Served Event : No Reservations will be Accepted on this Event.)

Deep in the wooded hills, where moonlight peers through the cracks in the tree canopy, a legacy was born. By night, the moonshiners worked hard to refine their special brews into a story worthy tale of excellence. While the sugars fermented, the fumes rose to the air mixing with the melodies of days long gone by and promise yet to come. The music that rang from the hills on these nights solidified an iconic definition of what is means to be made in America. Moonshine and Music have forever been linked to existing on the edge of society, where the fun begins and the stories carry on for a lifetime. 

It is our desire at The Listening Room Cafe to bring this tradition to you, so we teamed up with American Born Moonshine to showcase the best that Nashville has to offer. Join us every Monday night, starting at 8:00pm until the morning hours, to hear the best up and comers in music mixed with some of the names you've heard and love. You never know who may show up to play a few songs... This is for the players, the industry and the people who understand what music means to all of us.

The best part, you'll hear the entire night through our state-of-the-art BOSE sound system. We mix the best sounding room in Nashville, with the best talent and the best liquor. When we do something, we make sure to do it right. Come check it out.

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.

The Tallest Man On Earth

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Dark Bird Is Home, the fourth album from The Tallest Man On Earth, doesn't feel like it came from one time, one place, or one tape machine. The songs and sounds were captured in various countries, studios, and barns, and they carry a weather-worn quality, some dirt and some grit. 

Early in Dark Bird, toward the end of the opening track, we hear other voices and sounds backing Kristian Matsson's own. One of them, later credited in the liner notes with Angel Vocals, shows up several times throughout the record, adding new color to the familiar palette. And so the story grows and expands. That first song has horns and a piano, keyboards, synthesizers, and other modern noisemakers . . . and by track two you've got The Tallest Man on Earth as full-throttle rock and roll.

While Dark Bird is The Tallest Man at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, it's also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings — which feels fresh for The Tallest Man on Earth, and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, like old cars and tightly wound clocks. The lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming, like tall trees and wide hills.

The other musicians and layers on this recording put a wide lens on familiar themes. Fear and darkness, sleep or lack of it, dreams in the dark and in the light. Moving, leaving, going. Distance and short stops, long straight lines, temporal places. More hopefully, a grateful nod to a traveling partner, a healing mind. Maybe a little forgiveness needed. Definitely some things to forget.

The Arts Company presents works by Daryl Thetford and John Petrey

Presented by The Arts Company at The Arts Company

The Arts Company presents Daryl Thetford - Premiering New 2015 Photography Series, compelling photographic collages from his own photographs that become narratives that are colorful, playful, and iconic. Investing more than forty hours of work in each piece created, Thetford begins with fragments from his own photographs, and then layers, refines and transforms diverse materials into powerful narratives.

The Arts Company introduces John Petrey, Sculptor, in his inaugural Nashville exhibit showcasing selected figurative sculpture pieces of fashionable and historic clothing, employing copper, steel, aluminum, and vintage and repurposed industrial materials as his materials of choice. He twists and turns resistant hard materials that he shapes into fashionable fabric-looking works that often suggest female armor fitted for battle.

The exhibition opens May 2, during First Saturday Art Crawl Downtown and continues through May 27.

Presented by Tinney Contemporary at Tinney Contemporary

Ranging from delicate drawings layered with collage to dynamic large-scale canvases, the work is dense with color and
