John Mellencamp

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Grammy-winning musician John Mellencamp has touched the heart and souls of music listeners and influenced American Culture with enduring songs, he is also one of the most successful live concert performers in the world. A man with a conscience, he used his visibility and influence to advocate an issue that hit close to home and became one of the founding members of Farm Aid, an organization that began in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms. The Farm Aid concerts have raised over $45 million to promote a resilient family farm system of agriculture.

In 2014, he also signed a historic "lifetime recording contract" with Republic Records for the release of Plain Spoken and all of his albums to follow. Universal Music Enterprises continues to represent the artist's prominent catalog as well. Mercury/UME recently released his latest live album, John Mellencamp Sings Trouble No More Live at Town Hall, this past summer.

“The music looks back toward … ‘Blood On The Tracks,’ with strummed guitars, brushes on the drums and neck-rack harmonica, and the words ponder trouble, power, love, God, freedom and mortality” says The New York Times. Plain Spoken is set to be hailed as an unparalleled new chapter in Mellencamp’s distinctive songbook.

Concert goers will receive a digital download of the Plain Spoken record with purchase of tickets to the tour. (One download code per ticket for online and phone purchases only; does not apply to box office or outlet ticket purchases.)

Family Science January - Circuit Sense

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Adventure Science Center

Adventure Science Center strives to provide families with opportunities to explore science in unique and fun ways. Our mission is to create science experiences that increase interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

COME TO ASC WITH YOUR HOME SCHOOL GROUP
DESIGN YOUR OWN FIELD TRIP!

Home school organizations or educational groups with 15 or more students may book any school programs offered in our program catalogue including demonstrations, presentations, labs and planetarium shows. Age level ranges are listed in the program selections. Field trips require one single payment for the whole group and may include advance deposits. Contact the Reservations Department at 615-862-5177 to schedule. For more information about this option go to the field trips section of the website.

COME TO ASC AS A FAMILY
We believe the best way to teach science is to experience science. Family science labs are parent/student hands-on science experiences. One parent and one or more children form a team to explore science stations and observe demonstrations built around common science topics such as chemical reactions, life science topics, technology and much more. This opportunity is designed for adults and children to do science together by questioning, following directions, recording data, and proposing explanations.

Please note: We offer a range of grades for labs so that families may work together. An adult must be with the student. Adults and students each pay the fee to be in the lab. For questions about lab content call 615-401-5053 or email fansah@adventuresci.org.

January 15 & 28
Circuit Sense
Craft simple circuits that light up a bulb, spin a motor and make a flying saucer. Observe the electric flow in circuits and work together to build both parallel and series circuits.

Maybe April

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Franklin at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Franklin)

Maybe April was born in the summer of 2012 when Katy Bishop, Kristen Castro, and Alaina Stacey travelled across the country to Nashville, Tennessee for a weeklong music industry camp. Sharing a deep love of country-folk music, a genuine admiration for one another’s unique sound, and a constant willingness to laugh at themselves, the three strangers from Jonesboro, Arkansas, Simi Valley, California, and Chicago, Illinois, quickly became friends. Katy Bishop put it best. “It was a puzzle piece, and we were all surprised at the friendship we made and how well we all fit together. It’s hard to find people that have the qualities you need to compliment each other.” In just a few short hours, the three singer-songwriters wrote a country song that shocked music industry professionals. “Loving You Still” sounded as though it was written by artists who had been working together for years.

The Lunchbox

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Overlooked / Underplayed. Films in this series are slated to play during the week of Jan 23-29, but with only a handful of showtimes each. Printable schedule here.

In Mumbai, home to over 18 million people, more than 5,000 famously efficient dabbawallas —lunch box couriers—navigate chaotic streets to deliver lunches, lovingly prepared by housewives, to working men across the city. Ila (Kaur) is a housewife living in a middle-class neighborhood with a husband who ignores her. Saajan (Khan) is a beaten down widower about to retire from his number-crunching job. After Ila realizes that Saajan is receiving the meals meant for her husband, the two begin sending each other letters through the lunch box. What starts as an innocent exchange about Ila's cooking gently develops into something more. Outside the space of their daily lives, both Ila and Saajan feel free to express themselves in new ways, leading them both to question how they might find happiness.

Batra's THE LUNCHBOX paints a nuanced portrait of life in contemporary Mumbai, effortlessly weaving themes of gender values, social class and generational differences into its core love story. Batra's beautifully penned characters—including Aslam (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), the eager trainee preparing to take over Saajan's job—and gentle, precise direction simply envelope you. Whether it's the cooking of a meal, the reading of a letter, or the riding of a crowded train, the film's small moments culminate in big impact. In a word: enchanting.  (From the Toronto International Film Festival Program Guide)

Concerning Violence

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Overlooked / Underplayed. Films in this series are slated to play during the week of Jan 23-29, but with only a handful of showtimes each. Printable schedule here.

Göran Hugo Olsson (THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE) returns with this bold, fresh and compelling visual narrative about the African liberation struggles of the 1960s and 1970s. CONCERNING VIOLENCE combines newly discovered archival material depicting some of the most daring moments in the confrontation with colonial power, accompanied by singer Lauryn Hill’s searing narrative and drawn from psychologist/philosopher Frantz Fanon’s seminal anti-colonial text, “The Wretched of the Earth.” In this potent, arresting and surprisingly emotional film, Olsson artfully elucidates Fanon’s psychiatric and psychological analysis of the dehumanizing effects of colonization on the individual and the nation. CONCERNING VIOLENCE makes accessible Fanon’s theory that the violence of colonialism must be met with greater violence to be defeated, as well as his vision and plea to reject the lust for colonial power and embrace a more creative and humane society. As a result, Olsson’s powerful documentary makes an accurate, timely and vital contribution toward building a better world for the future.

Starred Up

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Overlooked / Underplayed. Films in this series are slated to play during the week of Jan 23-29, but with only a handful of showtimes each. Printable schedule here.

Nineteen-year-old Eric (Jack O'Connell), arrogant and ultra-violent, is prematurely transferred to the same adult prison facility as his estranged father (Ben Mendelsohn). As his explosive temper quickly finds him enemies in both prison authorities and fellow inmates—and his already volatile relationship with his father is pushed past the breaking point—Eric is approached by a volunteer psychotherapist (Rupert Friend), who runs an anger management group for prisoners. Torn between gang politics, prison corruption, and a glimmer of something better, Eric finds himself in a fight for his own life, unsure if his own father is there to protect him or join in punishing him. Written by prison system therapist Jonathan Asser, STARRED UP is a merciless, uncompromising portrayal of a dehumanizing life behind bars, and the most accomplished film of David Mackenzie's career. As father and son, Mendelsohn and O'Connell give extraordinary performances, charting a path that resembles Greek tragedy.

Rounder Records Artist Doug Seegers with Special Guest

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Doug Seegers spent most of his life teetering on the edge of homelessness and playing guitar on the street for money. After long stints in New York and Austin, Seegers eventually moved to Nashville. He was among the faceless chasing the impossible dream, most-often hurried past to an accompaniment of hushed tones by tourists and musical elite. Brilliant, with a satchel of magical, big-time-writer-worth life-songs, he went virtually unnoticed. That was until he was discovered by Swedish country star Jill Johnson while playing on the grass in front of “The Little Pantry That Could,” a charity serving the hungry of West Nashville. Johnson made weathered soul and spirit Seegers her focus, taking him to the Cash Cabin – where John and June created magic – to record the rough-edge fairy tale of redemption.

Going Down To The River became an instant sensation when it was rolled out in Sweden, topping the iTunes chart. This wandering songwriter found on the streets of Nashville, a gentle but battered soul who was both unheard-of and unheard in Music Row’s corporate suites was an overnight sensation in Scandinavia. That success fueled a three-day flurry of recording at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium – an iconic studio founded by the late Cowboy Jack Clement, a Country Music Hall of Fame member and pal of Johnny Cash, who of course had recorded there. The formerly homeless street singer was making music in hallowed space.

Produced by Will Kimbrough, the album features a duet with Country Music Hall of Famer Harrison Parsons’ “She,” which features instrumental assistance from members of Emmylou’s Red Dirt Boys Band and from steel guitar legend Al Perkins.

Shawn Camp & Friends

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Some careers can be described with a couple of words, but Shawn Camp’s isn’t one of them. A bold and distinctive singer, a songwriter who’s provided material for artists ranging from Garth Brooks and Brooks & Dunn to Ralph Stanley, Del McCoury and Ricky Skaggs, and a multi-instrumentalist who’s played with everyone from Alan Jackson to the Osborne Brothers, his music sprawls across the lines that divide mainstream country, Americana and bluegrass - and if his songs have been recorded by more popular artists, his energetic new CD, Fireball, makes a compelling case that no one can do them better. From the hard-charging, country-rockin’ energy of the opening title track to the cheerfully mordant humor of the closing “Drank,” it’s a collection that showcases the thoroughly modern yet deeply rooted creations of one of Nashville’s most unique talents.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls, is a bastion of depravity and hopelessness where a lonely vampire stalks its most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red.

Cinema's first Iranian vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography, its prolific influences span Spaghetti Westerns, graphic novels, horror films and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno, and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch. Above all, Amirpour’s tale of love and squalor is fun. Why else would a vampire ride a skateboard? —Sundance Film Festival Program Guide

The Overnighters

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Overlooked / Underplayed. Films in this series are slated to play during the week of Jan 23-29, but with only a handful of showtimes each. Printable schedule here.

A modern-day “Grapes of Wrath,” the award-winning documentary THE OVERNIGHTERS is an intimate portrait of job-seekers desperately chasing the broken American Dream to the tiny oil boom town of Williston, North Dakota. With the town lacking the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, a local pastor starts the controversial "overnighters" program, allowing down-and-out workers a place to sleep at the church. His well-meaning project immediately runs into resistance with his community, forcing the clergyman to make a decision which leads to profound consequences that he never imagined.

Mac McAnally

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

If Mac McAnally never sang or played another note of music, his place in music history is more than assured. Writer, producer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and all around musical sage, Mac has seen and done it all. Now he is back once again with a new and energizing album – Live in Muscle Shoals.

Recorded live from the Norton Auditorium at the University of North Alabama during the W.C. Handy Music Festival, Mac put together an incredible band of musicians consisting of fellow Coral Reefers and Muscle Shoals/Nashville session friends in which they captivated the audience. A master storyteller, Mac introduces each song with anecdotes, describing how the songs came to be and how they have impacted his life.

Mac’s wit and love for life and music shine throughout. Live in Muscle Shoals includes his hits “Back Where I Come From”, “All These Years”, and “Down the Road”, as well as a cover of the ‘60s hit “I Heard It through the Grapevine”. The album serves as the perfect compliment to an incomparable career.

His songwriting drew the attention of Jimmy Buffett and Hank Williams, Jr., both of whom cut McAnally songs. Alabama took his "Old Flame" to No. 1 in 1981. The song cemented his status as a hit maker, a reputation that has never waned. Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, and Brad Paisly are just some of the artists who cut Mac's songs over the next 20 years.

His accomplishments are now beginning to be fully recognized. In 2007, McAnally was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. The following year, the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame followed suit, while the Country Music Association named him Musician of the Year for the last six (6) years in a row. And, Mac continues to own and operate his own recording studio in Muscle Shoals.

Jo Koy

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

From filling sold–out clubs across the nation, to appearing weekly as a regular on Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. His infectious, explosive energy onstage, insightful jokes, and family–inspired humor crosses all boundaries. In 2007, Variety magazine named Jo Koy one of the “10 Comics to Watch!” Raised in Tacoma, Washington, Jo credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. Encouraged by his mom, Jo participated in school talent shows and presented impromptu performances for his family and friends. This loving support led to the Las Vegas coffee house, and inspired a move to Los Angeles. In 2005, Jo hit the “opportunity of a lifetime” with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation. Since then, he has appeared several times throughout the years. A single father, Jo Koy was inspired by his son and began working on his first Comedy Central special “Don’t Make Him Angry,” which aired in January 2009. His much–anticipated second Comedy Central special “Lights Out” aired in October 2012, and is now available on DVD. Jo has appeared on various VH1 I Love series, as well as The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza. He is a regular headlining comedian at the world famous Improv, tours the college circuit nationwide, and performs in comedy clubs both in the U.S., and internationally. A firm believer in service and giving back to the community, Jo is currently working with The Lupus Foundation bringing awareness to this cause.

John Cowan Band

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

John Cowan, also known as the “Voice of Newgrass,” has been singing his heart out for thirty-five years, and his soaring vocals have only improved with time. A true innovator, John applies his powerful pipesto genres from country, bluegrass, and gospel to soul, jazz, and rock-and-roll – often within the space of a single concert. His ability to move fluidly through multiple styles, and carry mesmerized audiences on the journey with him, has set him apart as one of the most loved and admired vocal artists of his generation, not just by fans and critics but among fellow musicians as well.

Cowan’s rise to fame began in 1974 when he auditioned as the bassist for the then up-and-coming New Grass Revival. Needless to say, John was offered the gig, but it wasn’t until he’d accepted the job that the shy 22-year-old casually mentioned that he could sing. With his distinctive, rock-tinged tenor vocal and heart-thumping electric bass, John, along with fellow New Grass Revival band mates Sam Bush, Courtney Johnson, and Curtis Burch, and later Bela Fleck and Pat Flynn, introduced a new generation of music fans to an explosive, experimental and ultimately, eponymous brand of bluegrass. The “newgrass” sound spawned popular jam bands such as Leftover Salmon and Yonder Mountain String Band in addition to shaping the sensibilities of country megastars Garth Brooks, the Dixie Chicks, the Zac Brown Band, and Darius Rucker.

After New Grass Revival disbanded in 1990, John went on to record a series of critically acclaimed solo albums in addition to laying down guest bass and vocal parts on some 120 recordings for artists including Steve Earle, Bela Fleck, Alison Krauss, and John Prine. A few years later, John teamed up with Rusty Young of Poco, Bill Lloyd of Foster & Lloyd, and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers in The Sky Kings, a widely successful country rock band. John’s newfound alliance with Pat Simmons gained him the role of bassist for the Doobie Brothers from 1992 through 1995, as well as a songwriting credit for “Can’t Stand to Lose” on the Doobie Brothers 2000 release Sibling Rivalry.

The John Cowan Band, featuring some of acoustic music’s finest players, has been a force to be reckoned with these fifteen years – and counting. John is a fixture and a favorite at major festivals like the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado and Wilkesboro, North Carolina’s “traditional-plus” MerleFest. Stints in his band have helped launch the careers of Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers), Luke Bulla (Lyle Lovett), and Scott Vestal, among others. The band’s current lineup features long-time collaborator and outstanding flatpick guitarist Jeff Autry, renowned and in-demand fiddler Shad Cobb, and fellow Doobie Brother, Ed Toth, on drums. John again found himself the bassist of the Doobie Brothers in 2010, and currently tours around the world with the Doobies, laying down the low notes and singing the high ones as they perform various hits.

In 2014 John signed to Nashville-based Compass Records for the release of SIXTY, a career retrospective of sorts that is the singer’s most ambitious project to date. “I love my ‘job’,” Cowan says. “I love playing music for people every night. I’m very grateful for every opportunity I have to play my music with my own band for the fans that have been so loyal to me over the years. I don’t ever want to stop sharing my music with them.”

The Long Face

Presented by COOP Gallery at COOP Gallery

COOP Gallery is pleased to present “The Long Face,” an exhibition of multidisciplinary work by a select group of the COOP Collective’s new members. Each year COOP invites local and newly transplanted artists to join its ranks in recognition of the seriousness of their work and their commitment to fostering Nashville’s artist community. This stellar exhibition of works attests to the vitality of that commitment and the dynamism of our local arts community.

McLean Fahnestock’s inkjet prints from her Rocketless Launch series evoke the shared experience of NASA mission broadcasts and question the future of space travel. Nick Hay’s ‘zine excerpts illustrate and detail an email exchange between a West African doctor and a proclaimed centaur hunter. Angela D. Lee’s photographic prints construct mysterious family histories. Robert Scobey’s plaster sculpture of a My Buddy doll allegorizes progress and tragedy through a lens of childhood imagination.

More about the artists:

McLean FAHNESTOCK works in video, sound, sculptural installation, and photographic prints. Her works intermingle truths and fictionalizations in order to question ideas of greatness, singularity, and who and what make “history.” Fahnestock earned a BFA from Middle Tennessee State University and an MFA from California State University Long Beach. Her work has been exhibited and screened across the U.S. as well as internationally in Ireland, Canada, Belgium, Germany and Japan. She has received an ARC Grant from the Durfee Foundation, two Hoff Foundation Grants, and was awarded a Professional Artist Fellowship from the Arts Council for Long Beach. Her work was included in a DVD compilation of short videos by the LA Film Forum. She was a finalist for a 2012 Vimeo Video Award and was recently named “Most Promising New Artist” at MADATAC 05, in Madrid, Spain.

Nick HAY is an interdisciplinary artist whose work falls at the intersection of rock and roll music, historical peculiarities, and the furthest reaches of the universe where humankind maintains absolutely no significance.

Angela D. LEE is a graphic designer, professor and video artist with a love for the outdoors and the American South. She is professor of graphic design at Lipscomb University. Her video installation artwork concerning identity and homeplace within the landscape of the American South has been exhibited in nationally juried shows. She holds a BFA in design communications from Belmont University, an MA in corporate communication from Austin Peay, and an MFA in visual art from Azusa Pacific University.

Robert SCOBEY is an interdisciplinary artist with a BA from Lipscomb University and an MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. His videos have been exhibited at juried shows in the U.S. and at festivals and gallery exhibits in France and the UK. His two solo exhibitions have focused on an eclectic studio practice of overlapping media and also highlighted a series of carved books that has now been ongoing for fifteen years.

Eric Hamilton Band

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Eric Hamilton Band

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

The band's current Hybrid Unplugged instrumentation features four multi-talented instrumentalists singing rich, sultry harmonies in a "front porch, down home" stage setup. Unpredictable instrument and stylistic changes make for a genuinely unique performance that any music lover will not soon forget.

Billy Yates & Friends

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Franklin at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Franklin)

Billy Yates may be best known as a hit songwriter, having songs recorded by some of Country Music's finest including: George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Gary Allan, Joe Nichols, Chris Young, John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Lawrence, Jeff Bates, Sammy Kershaw, Doug Stone, Michael Peterson, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Van Shelton, Gene Watson, Rhonda Vincent, Willie Nelson and David Allan Coe, not to mention the George Jones' classic, "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair" and his Grammy-winning smash, "Choices". Billy Yates is also one fine honky tonk singer. After a string of efforts at a number of labels that began with a developmental deal at RCA in the mid 80’s, plus full recording contracts at Curb Records and Almo Sounds (which produced his top twenty hit, “Flowers”), and his most recent major label outing on Columbia Records, Yates now has ten CD's to his credit, including his latest critically acclaimed disc, "Only One George Jones". Those years of working with so many major companies has provided Yates with the education and tools needed to operate his own, M.O.D. (My Own Damn) Record Label. He tours Europe extensively where the recently named European CMA Male Vocalist of the Year also dominates the airplay charts there with his smooth style of traditional country music.

Billy will be joined by several of his songwriter friends.

Sound Kitchen Studios - 6th Annual We Are Building Lives

Presented by We Are Building Lives at Baker Mountain Farm

Sound Kitchen Studios (www.soundkitchen.com) will again serve as host to the 6th Annual “No Veteran Left Behind” benefit concert presented by the We Are Building Lives Foundation, org www.wearebuildinglives.org. Over the last five years, we have achieved huge success due to the generous support of platinum selling rock artists, Three Doors Down, Jason Scheff, Yogi Lonich, and Saving Abel, country artists Marty Stuart, Keni Thomas, Teddy Gentry, Big Kenny & Eric Lee Beddingfield, including many more amazing world famous acts. Our special guest artists, Bluesgrass, will again fuse bluegrass and the blues in our courtyard! Emmy winning broadcaster, Neil Orne, will once again return as Emcee for the live in studio concert.

The Sound Kitchen and each of the artists performing at the concert generously donate their time and talent to support We Are Building Lives Foundation, Org., a 501(c(3), a not for profit organization dedicated to serving Nashville’s homeless veterans. Since our inception, we have supported over 500 veterans, including, 37 families and 69 children by securing housing, medical care, transportation, VA & benefits assistance, plus many more services, all benefiting our veterans.

“Returning veterans find themselves facing an even graver battlefield,” comments Tim Gregath, Executive Director of We Are Building Lives. “Our organization is committed to assisting Nashville’s veterans through a variety of programs to transition them to become productive members of the community. Events like the Sixth Annual We Are Building Lives Concert provide much needed funds to bring these programs to those who served and protected our country on the front line.” This country’s veteran services are significantly understaffed and struggling to meet demand. Over 95 percent of all funds donated to We Are Building Lives Foundation goes directly to the veterans we serve.

Grant wishes for the children with MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE! In the last three years, this event has raised over $35,000 and granted 4 wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. With your help we can do more! When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, life for this child then becomes a routine of doctors, hospitals and sickness, childhood is lost among the struggles for survival. A wish gives a child more than a dream vacation or a meeting with their hero. It gives the child the chance to imagine and dream, to forget the long journey of illness for a while.

PPA Charities Super Hero 5K Fun Run

Presented by PPA Charities at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center

Last year, PPA Charities gave over $100,000 to Operation Smile. This funded over 400 surgeries for children with cleft palate. Additionally, they gave $21,000 to Dando Amour which supports orphanages in African and South American countries.

The 5K Fun Run starts and ends at the Delta Portico of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. The course is measured, but there will not be timing chips or official timing methods used. We WILL have special medals for the first three males and females to cross the finish line.

If you can’t join the party in Nashville on February 1, you can join us in spirit through the virtual run. All you have to do is promise that you are going to do a 5K. How you do it is up to you. To celebrate your commitment to the children, we will send you your packet in the mail during the week of February 9th. Your packet will include a fabulous t-shirt, a shiny medal and a commemorative PPA Charities Superhero for Smiles Runner Bib. You can display this with pride knowing that you went beyond yourself to transform someone’s life.

Underwriting sponsorships are also still valable. For as little as $240, you can fund a surgery for a child with a cleft palate. As a “thank you” your name will appear on the race shirt and you will receive a certificate to display testifying to your commitment to changing lives. Learn more at http://www.ppacharities.com/.

PPA Charities is the philanthropic arm of the largest non-profit association for professional photographers,

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 Unspoken Word Tour: Jake

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Jake "The Snake" Roberts:
Menacing, intimidating and totally hypnotic in the ring, Jake “The Snake” Roberts was a Superstar capable of taking you down physically as well as psychologically. Slithering to the ring with a monstrous python concealed in a burlap sack, Jake used fear as a weapon as deftly as he used pain. His DDT finishing move is still one of the most brutal finishers ever unleashed on a Superstar.

Jim "Hacksaw" Duggan:
A true red-blooded American, the tough, but lovable big guy always marched to the ring with a 2x4 slung over his shoulder and a red, white and blue flag gripped tightly in his hand. Often going up against underhanded foreign villains, Duggan would always get the crowd behind him by inspiring massive chants of "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!" that would shake the rafters and intimidate his opponents. For more than two decades, "Hacksaw" defended America's honor in the ring and enjoyed distinction as one of the most recognizable Superstars in the world.

Jones County, Georgia's Demun Jones is probably best known as the songwriting and singing replacement for Brooks Buford in the groundbreaking country and Southern rap duo Rehab. Born and raised in Jones County, which is located just north of Macon, Jones grew up absorbing all kinds of music, from country and Southern rock to Marvin Gaye and Motown, but it was discovering N.W.A. and rap when he was ten years old that really set him on his musical course. He released his first solo album, Jones County, an impressive country hip-hop set that chronicles life in his native Georgia, on Colt Ford's Average Joe's label in the summer of 2014.

BIG B has been an underground heavyweight (literally) since he first debuted on the scene with 'High Class White Trash' in 2004. However, he made his presence known in the mainstream this past summer when his single "Sinner.” Now, BIG B is back with his most well rounded album yet – 'Good Times and Bad Advice' will see this American underdog transcend genres and create a catchy album of outlaw hip hop and alternative rock melodies that will have you singing along.

Lucy Hale (Cancelled)

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

Please Note: This show has been cancelled. Please visit Point of Purchase for information on refunds.

From 3rdandLindsley.com: Rising country music singer and Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale announced this morning that due to a recent strain on her vocal cords her upcoming run of dates in early 2015 would be cancelled. “I am devastated that I can’t be out performing for my fans who have been incredibly supportive,” noted Hale, “but I have been advised not to embark on a tour at this time. You know I hate letting y'all down and thank you for your understanding.”

“THE ROAD BETWEEN” tour was set to kick off on January 29th in Boston, MA and had already sold out in New York City. Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase outlet for refund information.


“I’m still getting to the good part,” sings Lucy Hale in the poignant, coming-of-age song, “Road Between.” It’s the most personal track on the Memphis native’s long-awaited debut album, as it reflects a recent time in her life where a fork in the road required a lot of soul searching. “It’s the perfect song that explains that I’ve grown up a lot but am still not where I’m going to end up. I’m still caught in the road between,” says Hale.

“Road Between” serves as the lyrical account of Hale’s longtime musical aspirations finally becoming reality. That fork in the road actually led Hale back to her first love, singing. After years of honing her craft and finding her voice, she is finally ready to share what had been a bit of a hidden talent for the past decade. And so far, the response has been tremendous.

Hale started singing at just 8 years old and got her first taste of musical success at 13, winning the FOX singing competition show, “American Juniors.” Shortly after, her devoted mom cashed in her retirement so that the two could pack their bags for Los Angeles in pursuit of a record deal. But after knocking on doors in the music world, the then-teenager found herself taking what became an extraordinary detour into the acting world, including her current role as “Aria” on ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars.” The change of course resulted in several award?winning roles, and also gave her the time needed to realize the key to her musical success: going back to her Tennessee roots.

“I’m glad a record deal didn’t develop when we first moved to LA,” says Hale. “It took a while to figure out what I wanted to say and what my vocals lent to, so music got put on the back burner. But it’s such a blessing that it took a little bit of time, because now I know who I am.”

“My album is a snapshot of where I am in my life. I wanted it to be genuine – to tell the story of what I was going through at the time and what I’d been through - and I think we captured that.”

Through her songs, the vocal powerhouse introduces her millions of fans to her true self outside a Hollywood sound stage. The tracks strip away the glitz and glamour of Tinsel Town to show that she is just like any other 24-year-old woman, with dating drama and typical insecurities.

“With acting, you can hide behind your character,” she says. “With performing, it’s just me, Lucy. It’s completely stripped down and vulnerable; it’s everything I’ve gone through.”

“Whether I’m singing or acting, I just consider myself a performer,” she says. “They’re both ways for me to channel my creativity. My focus now is music, and people have been so supportive.”

Hale has certainly found a lot of open arms in Nashville – the place she says “feels most like home.” While the singer has no regrets about the winding road she took to get there, she is happy to at last be parked at her dream destination.

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Little was said about Parquet Courts’ debut effort, American Specialties. Released exclusively on cassette tape, the quasi-album was an odd collection of 4 track recordings that left those who were paying attention wanting more. A year of woodshedding live sets passed before the Courts committed another song to tape. The band’s first proper LP, Light Up Gold, is a dynamic and diverse foray into the back alleys of the American DIY underground. Bright guitars swirl serpentine over looping, groovy post-punk bass lines and drums that border on robotic precision. While the initial rawness of the band’s early output remains, the songwriting has gracefully evolved. Primary wordsmiths A. Savage and Austin Brown combine for a dynamic lyrical experience, one part an erudite overflow of ideas, the other an exercise in laid-back observation. Lyrically dense, the poetry is in how it flows along with the melody, often times as locked-in as the rhythm section.

“This record is for the over-socialized victims of the 1990’s ‘you can be anything you want’, Nickelodeon-induced lethargy that ran away from home not out of any wide-eyed big city daydream, but just out of a subconscious return to America’s scandalous origin,” writes Savage in the album’s scratched-out liner notes. Recorded over a few days in an ice-box practice space, Light Up Gold is equally indebted to Krautrock, The Fall, and a slew of contemporaries like Tyvek and Eddy Current Suppression Ring.

Though made up of Texan transplants, Parquet Courts are a New York band. Throw out the countless shallow Brooklyn bands of the blasé 2000’s: Light Up Gold is a conscious effort to draw from the rich culture of the city - the bands like Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground that are not from New York, but of it. A panoramic landscape of dilapidated corner-stores and crowded apartments is superimposed over bare-bones Americana, leaving little room for romance or sentiment. It’s punk, it’s American, it’s New York… it’s the color of something you were looking for.

Cold War Kids with Ellliot Moss

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Los Angeles four-piece Cold War Kids elevate their passionate take on indie rock with their emotionally-raw fourth album Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.

Formed in 2004, the band's breakthrough debut Robbers & Cowards was released to considerable acclaim in 2006. The darker Loyalty To Loyalty followed two years later, and 2011's Mine Is Yours introduced deeper anthemic qualities to the eclectic group's catalog.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, which features the rollicking, energetic single "Miracle Mile," is Cold War Kids' first release with former Modest Mouse and Murder City Devils guitarist Dann Gallucci, who also handled its production alongside Lars Stalfors.

"We were shaken up, ready to let certain songs go further than before by trying new styles and arrangements, while keeping others sparse and caring more about the finished product and less about how we got there," explains frontman Nathan Willet about the ten-track album, which was recorded at the band's private studio in San Pedro, CA.

Umphrey's McGee

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

After 16 years of performing over 100 concerts annually, releasing seven studio albums and selling more than 3.3 million tracks online, Umphrey’s McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels and attend to their lives as husbands and fathers. But you’d be wrong. With their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, and first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group – which formed on the Notre Dame campus outside of South Bend, Indiana in 1997 – has something to prove. And that’s not just to their ever-loyal fan base, but to those who have never heard a note, or worse – dismiss them as “too sophisticated, too complex” or think they know what Umphrey’s McGee is all about.

Kawehi

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

With a voice uniquely her own, Hawaiian singer-songwriter Kawehi draws you in with her catchy hooks and honest lyric. Manned by a Guitar, KoAloha 'Ukulele and Boss RC-300 Looping Station, she's known across the nation as a "one-man band," creating intricate loops via beatboxing and creative guitar/'ukulele usage. Since taking a GIANT leap to L.A. from her home in Hawai'i, she has been featured in Music Connection Magazine's "Hot 100 Unsigned Artists & Bands" in 2011. In less than a year, her videos have been featured on CBS News Most Viral Videos, Vimeo, Booooooom! and Sony Music. Kawehi is also known across the web as "The Kickstarter Darling," raising funds for three EP's through crowd-funding alone, made possible by Kickstarter. In February 2013, she played for the TED attendees at the TED 2013 Conference in Long Beach, CA.

Now with over 300 shows nationally under her belt, Kawehi is making a name for herself as a true DIY artist, creating music that is both tangible and relative - and generating much-deserved attention from both fans and industry folk alike.

Evan Dando

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Evan Griffith Dando formed The Lemonheads with two high school buddies in late winter '86, in their senior year at Boston's tiny Commonwealth School. A few months later, they spawned what is now one of the most sought-after punk relics of the 80s, the indie EP Laughing All the Way to the Cleaners. Boston-based Taang! Records immediately picked up on The Lemonheads, with three college radio pleasers to follow: the LPs Hate Your Friends (1987), Creator (1988), and Lick (1989). In 1990 Atlantic Records took notice of the massively expanding Lemonheads fan base in Europe (where they toured in 1989) and America by signing the band and releasing their well-received (in Cambridge, Massachusetts) fourth LP, Lovey.

Two years of brutal touring following their 1993 album Come on Feel the Lemonheads caught the imagination of a press ever eager for negative copy when Evan had some high-profile personal meltdowns on various continents. Still The Lemonheads managed to crank out a defiant 1996 release Car Button Cloth, with some of their best melodic pop/punk to date: "It"s All True", "If I Could Talk I"d Tell You", and "Tenderfoot". After a year promoting the record, Dando announced at the 1997 Reading Festival that he was disbanding The Lemonheads. Atlantic released a Best of The Lemonheads album in 1998, and a lot of geezers surmised that that was that.

In 2004 Evan Dando found himself fronting the MC5, the most incendiary rock band of 1960s America, as lead vocalist in a 41-show tour. And it was hard to miss Dando during 2005 and early 2006, as he toured widely in North America and Europe with various bass players (Juliana Hatfield and Josh Lattanzi) and drummers (Bill Stevenson, Chris Brokaw from Come, George Berz of Dinosaur Jr), and occasionally as a one man electrical wrecking crew. Memorably, in September 2005, Dando, Stevenson, and Lattanzi played two instantly sold-out shows in London as part of the Don"t Look Back series, where they rocked through It"s a Shame About Ray from start to finish.

Trampled By Turtles

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Trampled By Turtles formed in 2003 in Duluth, Minnesota. From their beginnings on the Midwestern festival circuit, they have reached new heights with each album.  The release of 2012’s Stars And Satellites saw the band play to more fans than ever, sell close to 100,000 albums, make their first national television appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, and have their first concert feature, Live at First Avenue, broadcast on Palladia. This year will see the band headline Red Rocks Ampitheatre for the first time and the kickoff of their own festival, Festival Palomino, which will take place September 20, 2014 outside Minneapolis.  

Lead songwriter Dave Simonett has been especially affected by change over the last few years.  He relocated from Duluth to the city of Minneapolis.  “When I lived in Duluth, I think I took connection with uncivilized nature for granted. There, I had to drive 20 minutes and I was in the middle of nowhere, and I did this almost daily,” says Simonett.  “This was a very important ritual for me. Solitary time in a nearly untouched landscape is my version of church, so I think there is a bit of loss of religion in a lot of my work these days. I've always been a little obsessed with our struggle to stay connected to our simple animal side, the part of our nature that lived off the earth, hunted live game, worshipped trees and mountains. I believe a lot of sadness is caused by feeling disconnected with the rest of nature.  A lot of what is instinctual for us is beaten down and frowned upon in modern society.  It has to be confusing for the subconscious.”

About the play:

When Elephant Gerald and his perky, smiley friend Piggie receive an invitation to the Squirelles party, they find themselves in a predicament. Is it a fancy party? A pool party? A costume party? A fancy pool costume party!? Whatever will our beloved characters do? Author and playwright Mo Willems answers these questions - and more - with his new Elephant & Piggie’s We Are in a Play! Based on his own award-winning series of cartoon books for early readers, this musical is part vaudeville, part absurd, and entirely hilarious. As these two best-bestus beasties don their finest finery, trendiest trunks, and most marvelous masks, they find themselves singing and dancing their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense. You will find yourself pulled into the action as our heroes, Elephant and Piggie, can finally say, “We Are in a Play!!!!!!”

Cherub with Mystery Skulls, ForteBowie

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Cherub is a sexy electro-­pop duo that is the dance love-­child of 80’s funk and pop-­music from the future. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe.

Cherub’s music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind timeless artists such as Prince or Zapp and Roger, and more contemporary artists like Pharrell and The Dream. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out.

2013 saw the release of “100 Bottles” EP with the leadoff infectious smash “Jazzercise ’95.” In addition to a direct support slot on spring 2013’s Age of Reason Tour with Gramatik, the band will be making stops at such festivals as Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, Austin City Limits, Wakarusa, as well as stops in the UK & Europe.

Named one of Paste Magazine’s “12 Tennessee Bands you Should Listen to Now,” Cherub had a massive 2012, with appearances at such major festivals as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Electric Forest, Hangout Fest, Snowball Music Fest, and with STS9 at Red Rocks Amphitheater.

After receiving a warm response worldwide to the digital release of the band’s first record, Man of the Hour, and touring throughout the US and Mexico, Cherub released their follow up MoM & DaD in February 2012. The album includes the smash viral hit “Doses and Mimosas,” which in August 2012 hit #1 on Hype Machine’s most talked about songs chart.

WAG's February Art Crawl show: "On Screen" by Kayla Saito

Presented by WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery) at WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery)

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents On Screen, a multimedia installation by Watkins Fine Art senior Kayla Saito, at its downtown gallery WAG during the February 7 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

For her exhibition, Saito interprets the way people display themselves in social media, then transforms what she sees into physical form. On Screen aims to investigate the repre-sentation of individual identity in social media as well as question the artist’s role as seer and interpreter. An interactive element will invite the audience to offer live feedback on the exhibition and the artist.

Saito was inspired in part by a quote from Oscar Wilde: “Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”

Saito was graduated with honors from Nashville School of the Arts and is a Dean’s List Fine Art senior with a special interest in sculpture and printmaking. A council member of the Watkins-led art collective Co. H, she is a collaborator on many of their social practice projects and has previously exhibited at WAG in the printmaking show Staying the Course (February 2014) and Co. H’s Seven Types of Play (April 2014). Her work has also been seen at Cheekwood and TPAC and in Co. H’s summer 2014 exhibition, Mystic Truths (Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery), named by the Nashville Scene “Best Student Show” in their recent Best of Nashville issue. Saito interned with Seed Space and currently is a studio assistant for local artist Adrienne Outlaw. She was also an assistant for The Parthenon’s FLEX IT!, My Body My Temple exhibition (September 2014 through January 2015).

Diana Ross

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Diana Ross (born March 26, 1944) is an American singer, actress, record producer and an occasional songwriter. Born and raised in Detroit, she rose to fame as a founding member and lead singer of the vocal group The Supremes, which, during the 1960s, became Motown's most successful act and is to this day America's most successful vocal group as well as one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time. As part of the Supremes, Ross most notably rivalled the career of The Beatles in worldwide popularity, and their success made it possible for future African American R&B and soul acts to find mainstream success. The group set a record scoring twelve number-one hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Cuss Free Comedy: Taylor Mason

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Taylor Mason has been making audiences laugh, very hard, for 24 years as a professional comedian. He has headlined every major comedy club in the USA. He has played Las Vegas, Tahoe and Atlantic City. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Sydney Opera House in Australia, and in 1991 Taylor won $100,000 on televisions' Star Search (the money is long gone, don't ask). In addition, his self-contained, packs-small-but-plays-big act has entertained countless corporate clients including McDonald's, The Disney Corporation, and The Critical Care Nurses Association. With the ability and experience to customize his performance while writing topical and client-centered comedy material, his performance can cross-over into any given situation.
Where the comedians of today often exclude audiences by age or background or demographic, Taylor Mason maintains an old-school ethic - he wants to include as many people as possible. By constantly working to the top of his intelligence, while keeping abreast of current social and contemporary themes, Taylor uses every ounce of energy and boundless enthusiasm to maintain a very high level of comedy performance for the broad kinds of audiences he has.
He plays the piano. He is a world-class ventriloquist. He sings, does stand-up, writes jokes and he produces. Face it, he has no skills with any application to real life. Thank God he has comedy to fall back on.

An Introduction to the Blair School’s New Pipe Organ Carl Smith, organist

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

This program marks the dedication of the Blair School’s new Dobson pipe organ, whose construction and installation were made possible through a generous gift from Cal Turner Jr. and Laura Dugas. The organ is given to Blair in honor of longtime and much-loved Vanderbilt organist Cyrus Daniel, on behalf of all his former students — a group that includes Turner!

The first part of the event will be an informal discussion of the organ's design and musical characteristics, with numerous musical illustrations. This will be followed by a formal 45-minute recital on the organ, which will include music by Couperin, Bach, Brahms and others. A reception will follow the recital, with an opportunity to meet the organ builder.

Presented with gratitude to Lois and Peter Fyfe for their generous support of the Blair School.

Nashville Sunday Night | The Lower Caves with Future Thieves

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.

The Lower Caves make music that simultaneously refuses to follow a formula, yet is always immediately identifiable as their own. Aaron Ahlstrom's (vocals/guitar) distinct tenor delivery which ranges from melancholic introspection to almost-delirious aggression provides the touchstone; giving fellow bandmates Jonathan Williams (drums), Jon Shearer (guitar/keys), and Sean Savacool (bass) the ability to provide an exceptionally wide variety of creative musical backdrops. Those soundscapes move between ethereal and hard-hitting, from art-rock to edgy alternative.

The band, known as Eastern Block until their name change in the summer of 2013, has developed a loyal following in Nashville driven by enthusiastic word-of-mouth reviews of their live shows which combine their sophisticated and memorable song arrangements with an unmistakable love and energy for performing. This combination helped them win the Nashville 2011 Music City Mayhem Contest for best Nashville band.

Having already released a self-titled EP, their first full length album Past Palace and a "Wingwalker / Terrible Fantastic" 7 inch single, they've spent the past months in an East Nashville studio self producing their upcoming album. The sessions, financed entirely by their fans thru a successful Kickstarter campaign, show the band taking another large confident step forward musically. The long recording process has allowed the band to grow even closer as they've fleshed out new compositions by Ahlstrom while encountering some decidedly unintentional comic relief. The forthcoming album, christened Turquoise Blues, is an impressive collection of music that highlights both strong, diverse songwriting and each of the four members individual talents.

Early supporter WRLT / Nashville (award winning commercial Triple A radio station) has played multiple songs by the band with the track “Protecting God” receiving over 100 plays to date. Their songs have also been featured on various outlets including a Motorola on-line advertising campaign, MTVs Teen Mom, ABC Family Network series Jane By Design, The CW Network & Warner Bros One Tree Hill and the L.A. Complex television series. Red Bull recently invited the band to participate in the Red Bull Sound Select campaign, which will include a live show in Nashville in addition to exposure on the company's web platform to promote and develop local talent in key US cities.

Phox

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

PHOX is a bunch of friends from the Midwestern circus hamlet, Baraboo, WI, a place where kids often drink poisoned groundwater and become endowed mutants. They make music that straddles Feist and Monty Python. It was in Baraboo that the six unlikely musicians attended high school together, some playing on the soccer field, others on video production sets. But in a town with a drive-your-tractor-to-school day, they didn't last. They did the thing that most people do when they are 18: they fled the coop, each going their separate ways (to film school, cosmetology school, a job with Homeland Security…). But promises were made that couldn't be kept, and as they fell in unrequited love and lost their respective jobs, in spite of themselves, each simultaneously pulled the ripcord and came home.  The sextet promptly (-ish) got a house together in the Portland of the heartland, Madison, WI. As prolifically documented in their online video series, PHOX rekindled their onetime A/V production house while discovering how to live as a family (i.e. how not to berate each other about the hair in the sink). After two years of cohabiting, PHOX beheld a demo reel of bedroom-recorded music (and home movies) that made Bon Iver and The Fray recording engineer Brian Joseph blush. Donning his producer's cape (and occasional lab coat), Joseph cheer-led the band through its debut album at April Base Studios in Eau Claire, WI. Joseph's enthusiasm propelled the band through the production of more than a dozen songs that have been swimming in the think tank for two years. Mixed by Michael Brauer at Electric Lady in NYC, their debut album is a school of simple folk-pop songs swimming amidst a chaotic eddy of rock, psychedelia, and soul. If the goal here is friendship, PHOX is doing quite well. If the chosen path is blue collar pixel-pushing and church camp trust falls, they're on the way. And if their only coping mechanism is to lay down their arms and, for 30 or 45 minutes a day, shut up and listen to each other, you can't be too upset.

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.

VDS: Art, Advocacy and Action: This is my Body: Exploring Gender & Sexual Equality with Sonya Renee

Presented by Vanderbilt Divinity School at Vanderbilt University - Divinity School

Body of Art, Embodied Performance, Interactive Exhibit, Spoken Word, Moving Music, Body Language. Art cannot be separated from the body, and it is out of the body that many artists create.

Art serves vision, and artists push us to understand, envision, and revision the world in new ways. Artists are creators, who innovate and create new worlds, who renew our built environments, who fashion our outer landscapes as well as our inner minds. In this way, all art is "activism." Some art is explicitly so.

We cannot separate the cultural confines of gender and sexuality from our bodies, but we can use art and our bodies to explore our personal and structural human experiences: connection, joy, pain, violence, healing, injustice, power, and oppression.

Join us as diverse artists call us to engage the gendered and sexualized nature of our human bodies through spoken word, writing, fashion, social media, and social action. Together during this Art, Advocacy, and Action, we will uncover how artists/activists encourage us to pay attention to our embodied realities and challenge the sexualized and gendered oppression present in our everyday lives. Furthermore, they will lead us in unearthing the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, ability, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and a myriad of other identifiers.

Ms. Renee begins her performance at 6:00pm

This event is co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt Divinity School, Carpenter Program in Religion, Gender and Sexuality, The Cal Turner Program for Moral Leadership in the Professions, The Office of LGBTQI Life and Scarritt Bennett Center. 



02/11/15

Echosmith

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

LA-based alt-pop band Echosmith is having a breakout 2014, with the success of their debut album Talking Dreams and hit single “Cool Kids” propelling them into the spotlight. Both MTV and VH1 have taken notice and named the band an MTV “Artist to Watch” and VH1 “You Oughta Know” Artist for the year, while “Cool Kids” continues to explode and is charting in the Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 10 at Top 40, and in the Top 10 of the iTunes singles chart. Echosmith has also been all over TV, from Conan to The Today Show and Ellen. The Sierota siblings – Jamie (vocals/guitar), Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums) – have developed a distinctive melody-minded, New Wave-influenced sound that has earned them rave reviews. Rolling Stone loves their “teenage daydreams inspired by new wave angst and California sunshine,” ELLE.com has declared “Cool Kids” an “ageless anthem,” while Esquire attests, “Rest assured, this is a group you’re going to be hearing about for a long time. Echosmith is the real deal, and so, a rarity.”

Above & Beyond

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

CONNECTION. If one word sums up the phenomenon of Above & Beyond then that is surely it. Whether it’s the thousands of fans singing their lyrics back at shows around the world, from Bangalore to Beirut to Brixton, or the millions that tune in for their weekly Group Therapy (ABGT) radio show, connection – real human connection - is at the heart of all things that define this multitalented trio.

Above & Beyond is Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki, and their story is one of constant movement over a 14-year history. From their early days as hotly-tipped producers remixing Radiohead and Madonna, to their current global standing, Jono, Tony and Paavo have remained as down-to-earth and determined as ever – always focused on the next goal.

The only dance act in history to win the Essential Mix Of The Year award twice (for their 2004 and 2011 efforts), the London-based trio have played to one million people on the Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro (New Year’s Eve in 2007), sold out the Hollywood Palladium faster than anyone in history, and even had their track “Buzz” chosen to soundtrack the launch of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo in the Mojave desert. As these landmarks rack up, the non-stop pulse of their global touring keeps them connected to their growing international fan base. Each week brings another crowd, another country and often another continent, and an ABGT radio broadcast heard by over 25 million people.

Guster

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Ever since their humble beginnings at Tufts University, Guster have always sought to outdo themselves. They sell out New York’s fabled Radio City Music Hall one year and perform with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall the next. They sell out a 33-date college tour, and this past spring founded the eco-friendly Campus Consciousness Tour, with buses powered by biodiesel and performances powered by wind power. It’s in this overachieving band’s nature to one-up itself. 

So don’t expect it to be any different with the release of Guster’s new album, Ganging Up on the Sun. The Boston-bred band’s fifth studio release may be a melody-minded, breezy, free-spirited, literate pop record like its predecessors—2003’s Keep it Together, 1999’s Lost and Gone Forever, 1996’s Goldfly, and 1994’s Parachute—but this time around, Guster are “more fearless than ever before,” says singer-guitarist Ryan Miller. They’ve pushed themselves both stylistically and emotionally, resulting in their most confident and superlative work to date.

Body of Art, Embodied Performance, Interactive Exhibit, Spoken Word, Moving Music, Body Language. Art cannot be separated from the body, and it is out of the body that many artists create.

Art serves vision, and artists push us to understand, envision, and revision the world in new ways. Artists are creators, who innovate and create new worlds, who renew our built environments, who fashion our outer landscapes as well as our inner minds. In this way, all art is "activism." Some art is explicitly so.

We cannot separate the cultural confines of gender and sexuality from our bodies, but we can use art and our bodies to explore our personal and structural human experiences: connection, joy, pain, violence, healing, injustice, power, and oppression.

Join us as diverse artists call us to engage the gendered and sexualized nature of our human bodies through spoken word, writing, fashion, social media, and social action. Together during this Art, Advocacy, and Action, we will uncover how artists/activists encourage us to pay attention to our embodied realities and challenge the sexualized and gendered oppression present in our everyday lives. Furthermore, they will lead us in unearthing the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, ability, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and a myriad of other identifiers.

Ms. Mock begins her presentation at 6:00pm:

This event is co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt Divinity School, Carpenter Program in Religion, Gender and Sexuality, The Cal Turner Program for Moral Leadership in the Professions, Office of LGBTQI Life and Scarritt Bennett Center.

Cellist Michael Samis and Pianist Amy Dorfman in Recital

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

Pianist Amy Dorfman and cellist Michael Samis will perform a recital at the Blair School of Music’s Turner Hall. Aptly scheduled on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, the performance explores music by composers who had a voice in human rights, standing for equality in their daily lives and through their music.

A brief overview before each work highlights the individual composer’s efforts toward the proliferation of equal opportunity and freedom. The program opens with the energetic Romanian Folk Dances of Béla Bartók. This celebration of the under-respected Hungarian peasant music became a voice for all people; a stark contrast to the imposing Germanic fascism of the early 20th century. 
The performance includes the moving sonata by British Romantic composer, Dame Ethel Smyth. Smyth became involved in Britain’s women’s suffrage movement, and eventually spent time in prison because of her activities. Paired with Smyth’s rarely-heard sonata is the well-known and loved A-Major sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, who advocated for equality and democracy. This sonata was the first to match the piano and cello equally, with the two instruments answering each other back-and-forth in perfect symmetry.

Religions and Extraterrestrial Life

Presented by University Club of Nashville

Come and beat the winter cold by enjoying a celebrated Vanderbilt professor and author discuss life on other planets and religion. Explore new worlds and meet new friends at our meet and greet at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 12. Author talk begins at 6:00 p.m. David A. Weintraub, Professor of Astronomy at Vanderbilt University, discusses his book, Religions and Extraterrestrial Life: How Will We Deal With It? on campus at the University Club of Nashville.

In the twenty-first century, the debate about life on other worlds is quickly changing from the realm of speculation to the domain of hard science. Within a few years, as a consequence of the rapid discovery by astronomers of planets around other stars, astronomers very likely will have discovered clear evidence of life beyond the Earth. Such a discovery of extraterrestrial life will change everything. Weintraub guides readers on an invigorating tour of the world’s most widely practiced religions. It reveals what, if anything, each religion has to say about the possibility that extraterrestrial life exists and how, or if, a particular religion would work on other planets in distant parts of the universe.

Books will be available for signing. Enjoy a cash bar featuring our Cosmic Cosmo specialty drink. RSVP by February 10 to 615-322-8564 or email at contactus@uclubnashville.org.

Sinatra Forever with Rick Michel

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

A Salute to Frank Sina­tra is a con­cert that pays homage to per­haps the great­est singer of all time. The show fea­tures an inter­pre­ta­tion per­formed by Rick Michel, one of Las Vegas’ pre­mier singers and imper­son­ators, who lit­er­ally chan­nels “Old Blue Eyes” through his spot-on vocals of the leg­endary crooner!

The show is a love fest of Sinatra’s great­est hits, includ­ing “Come Fly with Me,” “That’s Life,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “One for My Baby,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “I’ve Got you Under My Skin,” “Sum­mer Wind”, “Strangers in the Night”, New York, New York and “My Way.”

Rick is a renowned humorist and imper­son­ator. He rounds out the show with sto­ries, jokes and quips as well as his dead-on impres­sions of the impor­tant stars and celebri­ties in Sinatra’s life—including an amaz­ing imper­son­ation of Sinatra’s Rat Pack buddy, Dean Martin.

Rick Michel will be joined with his 24 – piece orchestra including a string section, per­form­ing the orig­i­nal arrange­ments, mak­ing for a time­less con­cert in honor of one of the Amer­i­can Songbook’s great­est artists.

Nine of Rick’s 12 big band musicians have played for “The Chairman of the Board” to keep the authenticity of his production show.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear what Variety calls: “The closest sound the Frank Sinatra we have heard on the Las Vegas Strip”.

Colin Hay

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Colin Hay may be best known as the lead singer for Men At Work, the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be Now?” Hay’s justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 solo albums and is confident that Gathering Mercury is the best of the lot.

Hay recorded and produced the ten songs on Gathering Mercury in his home studio, with the help of drummer Randy Cooke, bassist Joe Karnes, and guitarist Sean Woostenhulme, from his touring band and friends like bass player Jimmy Earl and pianist Jeff Babko from Jimmy Kimmel’s band, drummer Charlie Paxson, Cuban percussionist Luis Conte and his wife Cecilia Noel on backing vocals.

Although he’s one of Australia’s best-known exports, Colin Hay was born in Kilwinning, Scotland. Hay taught himself to play guitar and, when the family moved to Melbourne in 1967, he found himself in the middle of a thriving musical community. One of those musicians was guitarist Ron Strykert. They started playing as an acoustic duo and Hay began writing songs. So, in the middle of 1979, drummer Jerry Speiser, whom he had met at university, and sax and flautist Greg Ham, whom he’d known since schooldays, joined them. “Men At Work” was formed, and off they went. Bass player John Rees joined a couple of months later.

Men At Work built up a strong local following and got signed by CBS Australia. Their first album, Business as Usual, released in 1981, went 5X platinum within the first year, won a Grammy, topped charts all over the world and ultimately sold more than 10 million copies. Their second album, Cargo, also went multi-platinum but inner disputes put an end to the original line up. Hay and Ham finished one more record as Men At Work, 1985’s Two Hearts, then went their separate ways.

Hay went back to his original musical inspirations for Wayfaring Sons, an album with Celtic folk influences for the MCA record. They dropped him soon after. Hay has released nine albums since founding Lazy Eye in 1992.

Hay and Ham toured with backing musicians as Men At Work from 1996 to 2002, and played to an estimated audience of 2 billion viewers during the closing ceremony of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. He’s also toured with Ringo Starr’s All Starr band in 2003 and 2008 and took part in the All Starr TV special. Hay and his music have been featured on TV shows including Dawson’s Creek, Judging Amy, and Scrubs.

His song “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You” was included on the soundtrack of the Zach Braff film Garden State. Hay also appeared in an episode of the celebrated “Larry Sanders Show,”a career highlight. Today, he’s equally at home in the studio or on stage, playing with either his band or solo acoustic.

Peter and the Wolf

Presented by Nashville Ballet at TPAC - James K. Polk Theater

Beloved by parents and children alike for decades, Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s timeless tale follows brave young Peter after he mistakenly leaves his grandfather’s gate open, unleashing a memorable adventure for him and a cast of animal characters. For the first time in years, the Nashville Symphony presents live music for this production to create a more enriching arts experience for younger audiences.

“Each character in Peter and the Wolf is represented by a different symphony instrument, so it’s a great way to introduce younger audiences to classical music and ballet, and the relationship between the two,” Nashville Ballet CEO & Artistic Director Paul Vasterling said. “The addition of live music by the Nashville Symphony this year will make the connection even stronger.”

The ballet comes to life with original choreography from Vasterling, music by the Nashville Symphony and pop-up book style sets created by Nashville artist Norris Hall. Immediately following the performance, guests can participate in a short educational and interactive session led by Nashville Ballet dancers and staff. This production is a vibrant example of collaboration among the local arts community, as musicians, dancers and a visual artist come together to bring Prokofiev’s piece to life in a whole new way.

Peter and the Wolf will be held at TPAC’s Polk Theater for two performances at 12:30 and 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 14, 2015.

Tickets $23 for adults and $16 for children 12 and under.

Shovels & Rope

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Mississippi-born, Nashville-bred Cary Ann Hearst and Texas-born, Colorado-raised Michael Trent forged singular paths as solo artists before connecting – both musically and personally – in Charleston, South Carolina. While they’d both had burgeoning solo careers (Cary Ann earned kudos for her 2006 album Dust and Bones, Michael with his band, The Films, as well as his own solo outings), they quickly found that both their voices – which entwine with eerie beauty in their haunting harmonies – and philosophies matched up perfectly, and a beautiful partnership was born.

“Consciously or not, we’ve always insulated ourselves from outside influences,” says Cary Ann. “The key, for us, is to be authentic to ourselves – and, sometimes to a fault, we’ve managed to do that. I don’t think we’d be able to keep doing this if we backed off from what we were doing when we started.”

There’s no backing off or backing down on Swimmin’ Time, the duo’s much-anticipated sophomore set as Shovels & Rope, an album that brims with the confidence, energy and sinew of a band that’s accustomed to treating their career as a marathon, rather than a sprint. The album, recorded at the studio Trent constructed in the couple’s home, finds them cutting a new path through the sonic thickets they navigated so nimbly on their breakthrough bow, O’ Be Joyful – a disc that won rave reviews from outlets like Mojo (which called it “thrilling”) and Filter, which said “[they] were solid singer/songwriters on their own, but this is truly a thing of magic.”

Lydia Loveless

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, Indestructible Machine, Lydia Loveless emerges from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on Somewhere Else. While her previous album was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart” (Uncut), this one can’t be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time around—Loveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe,familiar place.

Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination,and openness. Somewhere Else is more elemental than any of Loveless’s previous material; it’s about longing for the other, whether that’s something emotional, physical, or mental, all anchored by her arresting voice that sounds beyond her years. Creatively speaking, if Indestructible Machine was an all-night bender, Somewhere Else is the forlorn twilight of the next day, when that creeping nostalgia has you looking back for someone, something, or just… anything.

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Spend your Valentine’s Day with City Winery and Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush. He doesn't seem old enough to be a musical legend. And he's not. But he is.

Salon@615: Daniel Handler, We Are Pirates

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

Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, will discuss his latest novel.

About We Are Pirates

A boat has gone missing. Goods have been stolen. There is blood in the water. It is the twenty-first century and a crew of pirates is terrorizing the San Francisco Bay. We Are Pirates is a novel about our desperate searches for happiness and freedom, about our wild journeys beyond the boundaries of our ordinary lives. Also, it's about a teenage girl who pulls together a ragtag crew to commit mayhem in the San Francisco Bay, while her hapless father tries to get her home.

About Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket

Daniel Handler is the author of four novels, most recently Why We Broke Up, and far too many books as Lemony Snicket, including All The Wrong Questions and A Series Of Unfortunate Events. He lives in San Francisco with the author-illustrator Lisa Brown, to whom he is married, and their

Seed Space: Talking Talking House by Andrew O'Brien

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space

Seed Space presents "Talking Talking House," an installation by Andrew O'Brien (January 12 through February 14).

Both the deck-as-addition and the Talking House transmitter embody a do-it-yourself spirit meant to enhance access: the deck brings the homeowner comfortably to the outdoors, the Talking House transmitter brings the potential homebuyer safely inside the private residence up for sale. In positioning these elements within the same context, O'Brien investigates what are essentially mirror images of desire orbiting a conversation centered on access and value in contemporary domestic life.

Andrew O'Brien was born and raised in Southern Maryland. He recently relocated from New York City to serve as an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. While in New York, O'Brien worked as head preparator for Yancey Richardson Gallery. He has also taught at the University of Oregon, where he received his MFA in 2009. His artistic practice is shaped by an early interest in science and the natural world, which led to an internship for NASA and Astronomy studies at the University of Arizona before he turned to fine art exclusively. Other vital experiences include conservation work with the Bureau of Land Management in Arizona and volunteer work with non-profit NGO's in the Southwest region, where he was exposed to the complex political and geographic environment of the US-Mexico border. He has exhibited at Archer Gallery, Clark College, Vancouver WA, Greenleaf Gallery, Whittier College, Whittier, CA, and Blackfish Gallery, Portland, OR among others.

Black History Month Celebration: Exploring African-American Genealogy

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

Join us as a panel of historians and genealogy experts discuss the many methods and resources available for discovering African-American genealogy. Traditionally, tracing African-American genealogy has been extremely challenging and difficult to follow through the tumultuous nature of historical documentation during the era of American slavery. Over the past century, however, there have been huge advancements in the resources available for tracking and exploring African-Americans’ ancestry. Following the panel discussion, there will be personal genealogical consultations offered by expert members of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS). Participants may sign up for FREE 15-minute appointments and receive help with your personal genealogy searches. Both events are free but do not include admission to The Hermitage.

Steve Rannazzisi

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Stephen Rannazzisi plays "Kevin," the League Commissioner on FX’s hit show The League. He was the first one of the group to get married and have a kid, which makes him as close as it gets to an adult in this group. He started the League because he thought it would be fun but now has realized it just means babysitting seven more children.
Actor/comedian Rannazzisi got his first taste of television success in 2003 as one of the smart-ass cast members on MTV's Punk'd. After being recognized on stage by Ashton Kutcher at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood, Steve was quickly signed up for the show. Since then Steve has continued to make audiences laugh in television, feature films and on comedy stages across the country.
Stephen grew up in Long Island, and majored in Theater and Film at the State University of New York at Purchase. After graduation and a short-lived desk job, Stephen left the Big Apple and moved out to Los Angeles to pursue his dream career in entertainment.

Upon arrival, his first job was as a doorman at the world-famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard. It was there that he honed his skills amongst some of the most prolific comics in the business, such as Eddie Griffin, Joe Rogan and Andrew Dice Clay. He also worked hard on his character acting and improvisational skills with The Groundlings School and Comedy Troupe.
After his success on Punk'd, he was made a series regular on ABC's Big Day, which chronicled all the hilarious happenings of a couple's wedding. Stephen played the wise cracking best-man "Skobo." After that series Stephen was cast yet again by ABC as a lead opposite Heather Locklear in See Jayne Run. Stephen was recently seen opposite Eddie Murphy and Thomas Hayden Church in the Paramount feature film Imagine That. He played "Kulik" the levelheaded partner in the financial investment firm where Eddie Murphy worked. Additionally this year, Stephen starred opposite Kevin James in the Sony Pictures blockbuster comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Stephen was cast as the leading character of "Stuart," the manager of the Pen store in a Mall that gets taken over in a robbery heist.
In addition to performing stand-up, his credits include guest starring in the FOX series Kitchen Confidential, HBO's Sex in the City, and NBC's Third Watch. Stephen has also performed on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and appeared in the feature films Summer of Sam and For Your Consideration.

Dave Mason's Traffic Jam (Meet & Greet Experience also available)

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

This ticket is for Dave Mason's Traffic Jam concert. To purchase tickets to his pre-show Meet & Greet Experience, please click here.

Dave Mason is a living rock legend. At age 18, the Worcester England native teamed up with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood to form the legendary band Traffic, who had a profound affect on the genre of rock and roll. While still a teen Mason penned the Traffic hit “Feelin' Alright”. The song became a global rock anthem and has been recorded by dozens of artists (including Joe Cocker who had a huge international hit with the song), “Feeling Alright” remains a highlight of Mason’s live shows today.

After extensive touring with Traffic throughout the UK and Europe, Mason headed for the USA to pursue a solo career. He struck international gold with his debut album “Alone Together”, which is considered a seminal rock classic. It’s known for the marbleize vinyl, vertical gatefold packaging, the hits “Only You Know And I Know”, “World In Changes”, “Shouldn’t Have Took More Than you Gave” and more. The album has sold millions of copies.

Five highly successful albums for the CBS/Sony label followed, four of which received gold album certification in the US. His next album Let It Flow sold millions of copies and contains another major Mason classic "We Just Disagree".

In addition to performing to sold-out audiences and being a permanent staple in record collections and hearts of fans around the world, Mason’s unique guitar work can be heard on many landmark albums and songs such as the Rolling Stones' Beggar’s Banquet, George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, Paul McCartney's Listen To What The Man Said and Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland. Hendrix’s major rock standard “All Along The Watchtower” features Dave playing the acoustic guitars before Hendrix’s soaring entrance onto the track. The song is a big favorite of Dave's and he performs it in nearly every on of his live shows.

Dave Mason’s work and career remain linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Delaney & Bonnie, Leon Russell, Ron Wood, Jim Capaldi, Mama Cass Elliot, and The Spencer Davis Group.

The Ryman Diaries

Presented by The Ryman Diaries at West End United Methodist Church

Award-winning actor/playwright/director Tom Dolan and author/musician/educator Debbie Mathis Watts will portray Music City legends Captain Tom Ryman and Bettie Baugh Ryman in the multi-media musical stage play "The Ryman Diaries" from Feb. 13-15 (Valentine's Day Weekend) at the West End United Methodist Church. Described as a 19th Century love story, "The Ryman Diaries" is a historical drama that depicts the life and times of Cumberland riverboat Captain Tom Ryman as told through the eyes of his wife, Bettie Baugh Ryman. The story covers 70 years of the couple's lives through film media, stage acting, and original musical numbers. It tells of their unlikely romance, marriage, entrepreneurship, raising seven children on a riverboat, ultimate success, Christian conversion at a tent meeting, and the building of the Union Gospel Tabernacle. The play is based on Watts' book, with additional dialog from Dolan. The actors penned seven original songs for the production. Film clips feature flashbacks of young Bettie and historical stills provided by the Metro Archives. "Both Bettie and Tom had the hearts of musicians, so it was totally fitting that they would play and sing," said Watts, a former writer/producer for TNN: The Nashville Network. "Their wedding anniversary is Feb. 3, so staging of the play over Valentine's Day Weekend is ideal. They were true romantics who laid the musical foundation for Nashville." A veteran educator, professional pianist-vocalist, and author, Watts' theatrical roles include Mollie in "Mousetrap" and Agnes in "I Do, I Do". Dolan has received national acclaim starring as Elwood P. Dowd in "Harvey", Dr. Albert Schweitzer in "Memoirs from Africa", and Sam Clemens in "Mark Twain Live".



02/13/15 - 02/15/15

Admission is $12 for adults and $9 for students K-12 and senior citizens age 65 and over.

Nashville Sunday Night | Turbo Fruits with Idle Bloom

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.

“Dave, tell ‘em about your wrestling record.”
“Three wins, sixteen defeats. Beat the same kid twice. Lost to the state champion in six seconds.”

Clearly, the Turbo Fruits are not athletes. They are, however, a rock n roll band and one that could likely take your state rock & roll champion to the mat in less time than it takes to cue up a record. What the Nashville, Tennessee quartet lack in physical adeptness they make up for in wild abandon and unfettered debauchery; in buzzsaw guitars and pummeling, primal rhythms. And they STILL look good in a unitard and head gear. Okay, that might not be true – we haven’t tested that theory yet, there wasn’t quite enough beer, there may never be enough beer – but they are definitely one of the most visceral rock groups in America, as is evidenced on their new album Butter. Recorded in eight days in Austin, Texas with Spoon’s Jim Eno at his Public Hi-Fi studio, Butter is the follow up to their 2009 Fat Possum album Echo Kid and the 2007 Ecstatic Peace debut. It’s a spastic, slab of fun-filled fury, a double-live-gonzo Athena busting out of The Flaming Groovies’ Teenage Head, thrashing its way through punk, surf, and power-pop and leaving a wake of blown minds and melted faces. Y’know, like a rock record is supposed to do.

Dr. John and the Nite Trippers - A Very Special Mardi Gras Show

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

A Very Special Fat Tuesday Show! The legendary Dr. John is a six-time GRAMMY®Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Known throughout the world as the embodiment of New Orleans musical legacy, Dr. John is a true icon in American culture. His colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art& Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford.

Dr. John headed west in the 1960s, where he continued to be in demand as a session musician, playing on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St. During that time he launched his solo career, developing the charismatic persona of Dr. John the Night Tripper. A legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-Gris, which introduced to the world his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Several of his many career highlights include the masterful album Sun, Moon and Herbs in 1971 which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger and 1973’s In the Right Place, which contained the chart hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.”

Kevin Devin and Into It. Over It. with special guest Laura Stevenson

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

As Kevin Devine started work on his sixth solo album, Between the Concrete & Clouds, he decided to make some fundamental changes. The first notable difference was the way he structured his day when he woke up each morning. Having spent most of his time on the road during the last few years, he needed some adjustment when he was stationary, at home in Brooklyn.

“As odd as it is, there is a routine to your day as a touring musician, so it’s always jarring when I come home from being on tour,” he says. “So I started to go into our rehearsal space almost like someone going in to his office, from like 2 to 7 o’clock every day. I was coming up with melodies and multi-tracking ideas, and not worrying about lyrics right away.”

And this marked the second big change for the New York City-born singer and songwriter. Rather than starting his process with a tight focus on the words, he allowed himself to follow “the things you unconsciously stumble upon—almost like the lyrics are a color more than a narrative.” Not, of course, that it meant any less of a commitment to that element of his writing.

45 RPM

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

SMCNash: Inbound N' Down

Presented by Social Media Club Nashville at Nashville Entrepreneur Center

On Tuesday, February 17, 2015, the Social Media Club Nashville is partnering with Hi5 Creative, HubSpot and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center for an evening workshop to discuss the importance of inbound marketing. This event is free and open to the public to attend.

What is inbound marketing, you ask?
It’s the future of marketing in today’s society, and in short, it’s taking important content and sharing it with the right audience, thus allowing a company to achieve the acknowledgement and recognition it needs to gain new clients and new leads. This means no spam mail, no cold calls and no useless information, and that’s just the beginning.

Adrianne Mayshar, a Principal Inbound Marketing Consultant at HubSpot, will serve as the event’s live moderator. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their thoughts and questions on inbound marketing with a live panel comprised of marketing specialists from Hi5 Creative, JT MarCom and Inbound Marketing Agents—three of Nashville’s top inbound marketing agencies.

Want to participate in the discussion?
Submit inbound marketing questions to @SMCnash on Twitter or on the Social Media Club Nashville Facebook group page using #InboundSMC, by Tuesday, February 10 to have them answered at the event.

The Nashville Entrepreneur Center is located in downtown Nashville inside the Historic Trolley Barns at 41 Peabody Street Nashville, TN, 37210. Parking is free and plentiful.

The Music City Medium Cindy Kaza

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium based out of Nashville, TN. She has been extremely intuitive since very, early childhood but had her first memorable experience with a spirt at age 10. Days after losing an elementary school friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing right next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience. She convinced herself it was just a dream. It wasn’t until her early 20′s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multifaceted abilities as a psychic medium. Cindy is clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling) . She works as an evidential medium. Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter.

This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit. Cindy has trained thoroughly through the United States and also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. There is no right or wrong way to grieve the loss of a loved one. Each person experiences the loss of a loved one in his/her own way. Cindy believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess. Everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!

Arlo Guthrie - Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Arlo Guthrie has been known to generations as a prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor and activist. Born in Coney Island, New York in 1947, Arlo is the eldest son of Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease, and America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher/artist Woody Guthrie. He has become an iconic figure in folk music in his own right with a distinguished and varied career spanning over fifty years.

Growing up Guthrie, Arlo was surrounded by such renowned artists as Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott to name only a few. Not surprisingly, Arlo drew from these influences and he in turn became a delineative figure bridging generations of folk. He and Pete Seeger created a legendary collaboration that was sustained for over forty years. The last Pete & Arlo show was in November 30, 2013 at Carnegie Hall, only a few months before Pete passed away at the age of 94.

Beginning the seventies with a number of albums for Warner Bros., Guthrie helped set the standard for the singer-songwriter genre burgeoning at the time. Perhaps the best known is Hobo’s Lullaby (1972) featuring a diverse body of work. Most notable is the definitive version of Steve Goodman’s The City of New Orleans that was a hit on all major charts. Another critically acclaimed album that charted on Billboard was Amigo (1976), which includes Massachusetts, honored in 1981 as the official State Folk Song.

Guthrie’s trademark ability to derail a song with a comical tangent and bring it right back on track with a relatable thought is as concise as ever. Fifty years after the historic events that launched him to reluctant celebrity, Arlo brings The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree in its entirety back to the stage for an international tour beginning January 2015.

Kat Edmonson with Robert Ellis

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

A stunningly sweet singer with a uniquely expressive voice, Kat Edmonson’s music has a timeless sound. In a few short years, she has gone from singing in small rooms in her native Texas to concert halls and festivals around the world, playing dates with the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Lyle Lovett, Michael Kiwanuka and Chris Isaak. She’s made memorable turns on “Austin City Limits”, “A Prairie Home Companion” and had her songs featured on several television shows and commercials. Such exciting growth is not surprising or unexpected for Edmonson. Her 2009 debut, Take to the Sky, comprised creative interpretations of standards and pop hits while her brilliant 2012 follow-up, Way Down Low, was called “one of the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard” by The Boston Globe. The album, which featured both originals and covers in styles from pop and country to jazz and bossa nova, earned her universal critical acclaim, and the attention of Sony Music Masterworks, who will release her third album, The Big Picture.

The Big Picture builds upon her previous works, but offers even more of her writing (she wrote or co-wrote 11 of 12 songs on the album), and more still of Kat’s unique sound. With no formal vocal training, she instead learned her craft as a child by watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals on the VCR, drawing inspiration for this album from old films and her favorite songwriters. The result is a delicious batch of pop perfection, with a dozen songs that are tight, polished and more upbeat than anything she’s done before. Edmonson draws from a wellspring of ‘50s and ‘60s pop, ‘70s AM radio, present-day pop-rock and movie soundtracks. The Big Picture is smart, sophisticated and fun and simultaneously classic and modern.

Lee Ann Womack

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

In a world of faster, harder, louder, Lee Ann Womack wants something far more radical: to be real. Strip it all away, get to the core of life, love and raw emotion - and you find songs that distill it all to the stopping power of a hollow point bullet.

For Womank, who’s sung at the Concert for the Nobel Peace Prize, performed for multiple Presidents, done award-winning duets with Willie Nelson and George Strait as well as tastemaker prokects for Buddy Miller, Oscar-winner Randall Poster and Rodney Crowell, music is the ultimate form of connection and communication. Raised on claic country records by Ray Price, Nelson and George Jones, she recognizes the power of visceral truth in a song.

“To see how far a song can take a feeling:” Womanck says, “is one of the most thrilling things I can do as a singer. In my career, I’ve been blessed to do many great songs, work with incredible musicians- and deep inside, I always ask how far could I go? When Frank and I started, that’s what we wanted to find out… to seek.”

Quietly, over two three-day stints in a nondescript studio, they did. Using garbage cans for percussion, Aubrey Haney's shining fiddle and the sort of reverence players bring in the presence of greatness, The Way I'm Livin' was born.

Unlikely songs in today's two-dimensional world of tailgates, cold beers, hot clubs and hooking up, The Way I'm Livin' proves to be more real; written for the jagged shards of life's rugged spots, turned over with some of the best melodies you'll hear. Not fancy, big or glossy, but man, these songs will take your breath away.

JD McPherson

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

As a visual artist, Broken Arrow, Okla., native JD McPherson is well versed in the process of working within clearly defined formal parameters, and he employs a similarly rigorous discipline with his music. On Signs & Signifiers (Rounder, April 17), McPherson’s seductively kickass debut album, produced by JD’s musical partner, Jimmy Sutton, this renaissance man/hepcat seamlessly meshes the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, on a work that will satisfy traditional American rock ’n’ roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting McPherson’s rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures.

“There are little subcultures within the roots scene, where people are really into rockabilly, traditional hillbilly stuff or old-timey music,” JD points out, “but there aren’t a whole lot of folks making hard-core rhythm & blues hearkening back to Specialty, Vee-Jay or labels like that. That’s what Jimmy and I really like, and our only intention going in was just to make a solid rhythm & blues/rock ’n’ roll record. But I didn’t want to make a time-machine record, so we tried to make something relevant but with all the things we love about rock ’n’ roll and rhythm & blues and mesh it all together. We both have eclectic tastes; Jimmy likes the Clash as much as he likes Little Richard, and I like the Pixies, T.Rex, hip-hop and all kinds of stuff. So we came up with a couple of weird songs and put them on the record, hoping that it wouldn’t scare off any of our ultra-selective fanbase.”

JD needn’t have worried. It’s highly unlikely that even the most discerning listeners would guess that the arrangement on his cover of Tiny Kennedy’s R&B chestnut “Country Boy” incorporates not only the tambourine beat of Ruth Brown’s 1955 Atlantic single “Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean,” but also Raekwon and RZA’s “abstract, out-of-tune piano loops” on Wu-Tang Clan’s innovative ’93 LP Enter the Wu-Tang; or that the mesmerizing churner “Signs & Signifiers” is powered by an unchanging tremolo guitar figure modeled on Johnny Marr’s part on the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now.” Then there’s “Firebug,” which JD “wanted to sound as if Stiff Little Fingers had recorded at Del-Fi Records.” And while it may not have been specifically what McPherson and Sutton were going for, the haunting dreamscape “A Gentle Awakening” seems to chart a course from “Heartbreak Hotel” through Terence Trent D’Arby to Amy Winehouse.

Charlie Wilson | Forever Charlie Tour with Special Guests Kem and Joe

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

Grammy nominated artist Charlie Wilson's new single “Goodnight Kisses” was the #1 most added song at Urban Radio and Billboard says about the single “…Over snap-and-swing doo-wop-inspired production, the GAP Band co-founder sings sweetly about his loved one’s smoochies. Wilson is still as convincing a romantic as ever.” Charlie is joined on Tour by highly regarded “Kem” and “Joe.” Both of whom will perform all of their numerous hits. The Forever Charlie Tour will truly be the “R&B Event of 2015."

Wilson has received seven Grammy nominations and multiple awards throughout his career; he was named Billboard magazine's #1 Adult R&B Artist and has had eight #1 records that topped the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary radio chart including, “Without You,” “Charlie, Last Name Wilson,” “Magic,” “There Goes My Baby,” “Can’t Live Without You,” “You Are,” “Life of the Party” and “My Love Is All I Have.” Most recently, Wilson received a Grammy nomination for the songs “If I Believe” in the Gospel category; he was also an NAACP Outstanding Album Award winner for the album Love, Charlie and BET presented to Wilson a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.

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).

Concert For Local Wounded Heroes ft. Scott Macintyre, Stray Dawgs of Nashville, Yates and Kevin Mckendree, and Pat Mclaughlin

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

These talented artists are performing for the Joshua Chamberlain Society of Nashville to raise funds for local severely wounded military men and women.

The goal of the Joshua Chamberlain Society/Nashville is to aid severely wounded military service members and families of killed-in-action service members who sacrificed all for our Nation who are from Middle TN. JCS/Nashville is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity with all funds raised going to aid our heroes. We believe our mission is unique because we adopt these severely wounded soldiers as JCS/Nashville heroes and stay with them for the remainder of their lives…  Just as their injuries will be with them for the remainder of their lives.

 JCS/Nashville has now adopted our first Hero, Cpl. Jeremy Voels.  Jeremy is paralyzed from the chest down due to injuries sustained in Afghanistan in 2010.  JCS/Nashville was able to have an all handicapped accessible addition added to his parents’ home near Clarksville so he could come home and be with his family after being in hospitals for four years. It will always be a challenge to raise funds to aid our current hero, Cpl. Voels and ultimately more heroes in the future.  Through the support of our community, we feel we can meet this challenge.  We thank you for your interest and hope you will join our JCS/Nashville family for an evening of inspiration and extraordinary entertainment.

Presented by Nashville Repertory Theatre at TPAC - Andrew Johnson Theater

In the post-Civil War South, three men are tied to each other by history and faith, but are also bound by secrets. A badly wounded Jewish Confederate soldier stumbles home at war’s end to find his family has fled to the countryside.

The three men unite to celebrate the holiday, even as they struggle to comprehend their new relationships at a crossroads of personal and national history.

This performance will star Tennessee Titans legend Eddie George!

“A compelling Civil War-era drama, filled with fine characterization and unexpected moments of humor.” —The New York Times

American Denial | NPT Presents: Community Cinema

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

Follow the story of foreign researcher and Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal whose study, An American Dilemma (1944), provided a provocative inquiry into the dissonance between stated beliefs as a society and what is perpetuated and allowed in the name of those beliefs. His inquiry into the United States' racial psyche becomes a lens for modern inquiry into how denial, cognitive dissonance, and unrecognized, unconscious attitudes continue to dominate racial dynamics in American life. The film’s unusual narrative sheds a unique light on the unconscious political and moral world of modern Americans. Archival footage, newsreels, nightly news reports, and rare southern home movies from the '30s and '40s thread through the story, as well as psychological testing into racial attitudes from research footage, websites, and YouTube films.

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.

Bad Suns

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Southern California rock band Bad Suns formed in 2012 and in the short time since inception, have managed to be musically beyond their years. Made up of Christo Bowman (vocals), Gavin Bennett (bass), Miles Morris (drums) and Ray Libby (guitar) the four piece ranges from ages 19-22 yet has a sound reminiscent of rock stalwarts from generations past. “I grew up with a lot of world music playing in the house. When I was 10, I started getting heavily interested in the guitar, and my dad began introducing me to his records from the 70's and the 80's. Initially Elvis Costello, then to The Clash, The Cure, and so on,” notes Christo. “All of these artists and bands had a big impact on me, at a young age, as far as song composition goes.

Nashville Sunday Night | John and Jacob with SHEL and Smooth Hound Smith

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.

John & Jacob, born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama found their roots in the sounds of back-porch pickers and harmonies of gospel singers.
After ten years of playing together, a stripped-down style emerged, leading the boys back to the basics with feel good melodies and lyrics. They started making trips to Nashville where they soon landed a publishing deal with Major Bob Music. Within two years, they wrote their first Billboard #1 song, were nominated for an MTV O-Music Award, tapped for Red Bull’s Sound Select and chosen by CMT Edge as their first unsigned “Listen Up” artist.
Splitting time between writing and touring, the boys are currently in the studio with their band cutting a record, while their song “Be My Girl” gains popularity on Nashville’s AAA station Lightning 100 and Birmingham Mountain Radio in their hometown.

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.

Maria Bamford

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Maria recently recurred as Debris Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot, for which she was praised as “fantastic” (Entertainment Weekly) a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). She also recurred on fX’s critically-praised Louie and Comedy Central’s Kroll Show.
Maria is the creator and star of the Chill.com direct-to-fans event Maria Bamford: the special special special, which Vulture.com named one of the Top 10 Stand-Up Specials of 2012, and of the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum of Art and Design and was described as a “cold blast of brilliance” by The New Yorker.

Margaret Cho

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Beginning with her early days on the scene in SoCal, comedian Margaret Co has always been the Agent Provocateur of stand up. Never one to shy away from a difficult, or even 'taboo' topic, there is no subject off limits. Her socially aware brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.
An accomplished performer in all formats, Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media,” having conquered the worlds of film, television, books and theatre. She has three Grammy Award nominations for Best Comedy Album under her belt. Her tours sell-out, and she’s had two shows debut Off-Broadway (I'm The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman). She has made an indelible mark in television, starting in 1994 with the network comedy All American Girl, followed by one of the first “reality sitcoms” to air on VH1, The Cho Show and most recently starring in the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva for all six seasons. The film and DVD releases of her stand up have broken records – literally, with I'm The One That I Want holding the title for ‘most money grossed per print’ for an independent film. Her other releases, which Cho fans collect and swap with zeal, include Notorious C.H.O (2001), Assassin (2005), Revolution (2003), Beautiful (2009) and Cho Dependent (2011). Since 1999, Margaret has been responsible for the distribution and sale of all her content.
In the spring of 2014, Margaret wrapped filming on the pilot episode of Cabot College with 30 Rock pals Tina Fey and Matt Hubbard. “I am so honored and elated to be a part of this incredible project and I know everyone is going to fall madly in love with this show! Also I get to work with my hero Tina Fey!! It’s a dream come true!”

An Evening with David Sedaris

Presented by Tennessee Performing Arts Center, TPAC at TPAC - Andrew Jackson Hall

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. The audio version of Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls is a 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album. He is the author of the NYT-bestselling collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer).  He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories.  Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”  There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.

Country Radio Seminar 2014

Presented by Country Radio Seminar at Nashville Convention Center

Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. has set Feb. 25-27 as the official dates for CRS 2015, held in downtown Nashville, Tenn. at the Nashville Convention Center.

Once again, the week is packed full of panels, exhibits, featured speakers and educational presentations that will cover all areas of the radio and records industry.

Known as the biggest Country radio event in the world, the three-day event continues to grow with a cutting edge agenda, including a solid list of networking opportunities and performances from some of the biggest stars and brightest emerging artists in the format.

"One of the first signs of spring is Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, and again in 2015, CRS will launch the year in country radio and music,” said CRS President, Charlie Morgan. “Again this year, our event will kick-off on Wednesday, February 25 and run through our New Faces Show on Friday night, February 27."

Early bird registration for CRS 2015 will begin in mid-July. Panels and speakers will be announced leading up to the seminar.

The annual Country Radio Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner will be held later in 2015. The official date for the event has not yet been announced.

The 2014-2015 CRS Agenda Committee, which will oversee the agenda for CRS 2015, was recently announced. Jeff Green (Partner/Stone Door Media Lab) will serve as Chairman and Tom Hanrahan (Regional Program Manager/Clear Channel Media and Entertainment) and John Trapane (SW Regional/EMI Nashville) were both named Co-Vice Chairman.

KONGOS

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

The brothers KONGOS -- multi-cultural, multi-faceted, multi-instrumentalists -- craft a unique and irresistible sound spawned from shared DNA, diverse influences and spot-on melodic and lyrical sensibilities. On "Lunatic," their 12-song Epic Records debut, the band's talent shines on "Come With Me Now"; the title an impossible-to-resist aural summons, the rock-alt crossover tune kicking off with the accordion, jumping into foot-stomping, staccato rhythms, slide guitar, and soaring epic soundscapes reminiscent of U2. "I'm Only Joking," whose lyrics hint at the album's title, hits the mark with decisive tribal rhythms and Pink Floyd-esque mysterious modern rock. Thanks to an earlier self-release of "Lunatic," KONGOS are already stars overseas, playing their numerous hits off "Lunatic" for crowds of up to 65,000 at South African festivals and touring the Republic with Linkin Park, and the UK and Europe with AWOLNATION and Dispatch. With a Feb-March North American tour with Airborne Toxic Event and alternative and rock radio hot on "Come With Me Now" and "I'm Only Joking," (not to mention "Come With Me Now" in promos for NFL, NBA and ESPN), 2014 is quickly shaping up as the year the U.S. catches KONGOS fever.

Maroon 5

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won't be Soon Before Long, which included hits like "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See your Face Again." In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which featured the group's anthemic chart-topping smash single “Moves Like Jagger.” The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Maroon 5’s most recent album Overexposed quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the charts and setting an all time record for the most #1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with the album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with over 50 million dollars in ticket sales.

An Evening with Harry Connick, Jr.

Presented by Tennessee Performing Arts Center, TPAC at TPAC - Andrew Jackson Hall

Showered with awards and recognition for his live and recorded musical performances, and for his achievements on screens large and small as well as the Broadway stage, Harry Connick, Jr. has exemplified excellence in every aspect of the entertainment world. 

The foundation of Connick's art is the music of his native New Orleans, where he began performing as a pianist and vocalist at the age of five. His career took off when he signed with Columbia Records at 18 years old and revealed his stunning piano technique and vivid musical imagination on his self-titled debut album. His follow-up album, "20," announced that Connick was equally gifted as a singer; but this was soon overshadowed by his multi-platinum success with the soundtrack for the hit comedy "When Harry Met Sally..." To date, Connick has released 29 albums, won three Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards, and garnered sales of 28 million. His most recent releases are "Smokey Mary" and "Every Man Should Know."

Punch Brothers

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

In 2006, former Nickel Creek member Thile instigated the collaboration that evolved into Punch Brothers when he recruited Eldridge, banjo player Noam Pikelny, and violinist Gabe Witcher to back him on a solo album, How to Grow a Woman; bassist Paul Kowert joined the band three years later. They officially became Punch Brothers, releasing a debut album, Punch, on Nonesuch in 2008. Since then, says Thile, “Punch Brothers has gradually evolved from a band that existed to present the ideas of one guy into a band presenting the unified idea of five guys. I had a very clear vision for The Blind Leaving the Blind and I’m very proud how that turned out, but the reason to put yourself in this kind of situation is to have the opportunity to present a real sense of community to other people. When there are five dudes up there doing something as a unit that encourages people to participate, that’s where Punch Brothers is exhibiting a lot of growth. We can actually bring a sense of real musical camaraderie, creative camaraderie, to people who come to our shows and those who listen to the records.”

The exhibition Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th-Century American Art assembles paintings and sculptures that recount stories relating to American cultural tastes, aspirations, and, at times, contradictions that marked the first full century of the new democracy. These works offer insight into the way in which the ideals and attitudes of early America began to take hold, and how, through art, they were transmitted and perpetuated across the country. This lecture will explore how artists drew inspiration from classical sources to explore contemporary issues of the nineteenth century.

WHO'S BAD: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Who’s Bad’s live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s one true King. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who’s Bad has awed even the skeptics, selling out nearly 50 venues in the United Kingdom including London’s O2 in December of 2010, the venue where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show “This Is It” concert series.

Beyond this unparalleled achievement, Who’s Bad has checked some of the world’s most famous pavilions off their ‘to-do’ list, selling out their first tour of China with stops at Ningbo’s Grand Theatre and Hunan Grand Theatre in Chengsha. Never neglecting Michael’s U.S. fans, Who’s Bad has packed The House of Blues franchise all across the United States; rocked DC’s 930 Club and returned to their native Chapel Hill, NC boasting larger, more eagerly-awaited performances with every romp around the globe. Sold-out shows from Colorado’s Bluebird Theatre and LA’s Gibson Amphitheatre and Romania’s Sala Palatalui to Teatro do Bourbon Country (Porto Alegre, Brazil) tell the story: no corner of the earth is safe from this infectious party production.

East Nashville resident Daniel Holland opens ‘Dirty Pictures’, his first solo exhibition. Representing both figurative and abstract themes, Daniel Holland’s large, colorful, expressive, and often object-like paintings have a disposable, almost anonymous look. Each work an assemblage of ideas pushed and pulled around. ‘Dirty Pictures’ refers to his use of old ragged drop cloths and large swaths of unprimed canvas as his chosen surface.

Zeitgeist presents works by Jeremiah Ariaz and Lain York

Presented by Zeitgeist Gallery at Zeitgeist Gallery

Join us during January and February for exhibits featuing works by

Once Upon a Time in the West by Jeremiah Ariaz Sweeping vistas of barren landscape, settlement towns on the margins of lawful society, Cowboys, and Indians. Jeremiah Ariaz has spent most of this past year traveling in Spain, Italy and Germany collecting images of the Wild American West; apparently alive and well across the Atlantic. This latest body of work, Once Upon a Time in the West, includes images shot at Sergio Leone, Spaghetti Western sets/locales in Italy and Spain and features portraits of German Wild West re-enactors.  The photographs represent a modern day western that blur the lines the lines between fact and fantasy while exploring the tension between the actual west and an imagined west. 

Scissor Bell by Lain York Many may recall Lain York's last outing at The Frist Center for the Visual Arts that featured themes of early American presidencies rendered in cut vinyl. Vinyl continues to be the dominant choice of material as Scissor Bell signals a return to more abstracted design work. Color, design, and texture convey loose, Nashville-centric themes featuring portraits, landscapes, and architecture in bright colors and bold shapes reminiscent of synthetic cubist-era Picasso and Stuart Davis.

Quilts and Culture: The Art, Tradition and History of Quilt Making

Presented by East Nashville Hope Exchange, Inc. at Shelby Bottoms Nature Center

The Shelby Bottoms Nature Center is currently hosting a fantastic art exhibit, Quilts and Culture: The Art, Tradition and History of Quilt Making. The center piece for the exhibit is the Freedom Quilt created by the children of East Nashville Hope Exchange, a nonprofit organization operating out of St. Ann’s Episcopal Church. East Nashville Hope Exchange works to strengthen literacy skills of at-risk children in East Nashville. Throughout the year, ENHE organizes workshops, events, and projects for these students and their families that support school year learning and help family members support their children in reaching grade-level reading skills.

In 2014, one ENHE summer project was the creation of a Freedom Quilt inspired by the book “Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt” by Deborah Hopkinson. Hopkinson’s book teaches children about the 19th century freedom quilts used by slaves to depict maps of routes along the Underground Railway. These quilts could be hung outside a house, signaling which way to go as slaves made their way north.

ENHE volunteer Sue Carpenter chose the book “Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt” to inspire ENHE students to create a quilt that symbolized their own journey as learners. The map depicts East Nashville and is decorated with local parks and landmarks, as well as the house of every child involved in last year’s Summer Program.

Carpenter says about the project: “Trying to make the theme of freedom work with the mission of ENHE, which is to provide reading support for children who are reading below grade level, I realized that freedom takes many forms. Literacy opens doors that would otherwise be closed to these children so our freedom became the ability to read. As an outsider, you most likely see only a bunch of varying colored lines, squares, rectangles and other irregular shapes splashed in a random pattern across a neutral background fabric. The children see freedom from illiteracy and hopefully a path to a more productive and satisfying life.”

The exhibit will run until the end of February at Shelby Bottoms Nature Center, 1900 Davidson Street.

This project was funded in part by a grant from Humanities TN, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities

Shake: Interactive Sculptures and Other Work by Alex Lockwood

Presented by OZ at OZ Nashville

Presented as part of the contemporary arts center’s local spotlight series, TNT (Thursday Night Things), Shake will fill OZ Arts’ vast, 10,000 square-foot warehouse venue, opening on Thursday, February 19, 6:30pm, and remaining on view through Saturday, February 28.

Alex Lockwood has garnered widespread acclaim for his singular sculptures, which are rich with color and often made from discarded, repurposed materials: bottle caps, shotgun shells, losing lottery tickets. OZ Arts Nashville will exhibit a career-spanning range of Lockwood’s creations in Shake, the most expansive exhibition to date of his work. OZ Arts and Lockwood invite audience members of all ages to spin, swing and smash the works in the show. 

Shake will encompass over 40 Lockwood works that together represent his most ambitiously realized vision to date. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be twelve large-scale kinetic sculptures installed in OZ Arts’ main performance space, including eight hanging structures made from recycled plastic bottle caps; one hanging tapestry made from shotgun shells; one floor tapestry made from bread bag tabs; and two large, wheeled objects with aluminum sheeting canisters as their cores and recycled material affixed to their outer shells. Audiences are welcome to touch and interact with these virtually indestructible sculptures, producing thunderous tones and storms of sound that contrast with the grace, vibrant color and formal beauty of Lockwood’s work. To be sure, the complexity of each work is not fully actualized until a visitor interacts with it.

Other Lockwood sculptures, including sea forms and garden flora made of discarded lottery tickets, will also be on display throughout the entrance hallway and Escaparate at OZ Arts. Upon entering the venue, audiences will encounter Dot Story (2015), the latest in a series of works in Lockwood’s earliest—and longest-running—format. These pictograms, which date back to the beginning of Lockwood’s art-making career, in 2005, tell stories of magnetism and repulsion that chronicle some pivotal transformation through contact. In all cases the subject is changed by experience. With their clarity and accessibility, these pieces seek to lay bare the uncertainty and promise of interaction between people. 

All of the works comprising Shake—and, indeed, Shake as its own composite creation—represent the artist’s conception of the continuum of the personal and the public, as told through three distinct viewpoints: the interior of the individual self, the surface of the individual body, and the relationship between distinct bodies. 



02/19/15 - 02/28/15

Admission for TNT Opening Reception on Thursday, February 19 is $10 in advance at www.oznashville.com, or $12 at the door. Extended days the admission is $5 for those 12 and over. Under 12, it's free.

Six Philadelphia Artists

Presented by Haynes Galleries at Haynes Galleries

The city of brotherly love is coming to Music City. Haynes Galleries presents “Six Philadelphia Artists,” an exhibition of six contemporary realists based in Philadelphia. Bold portraits, still lifes, and landscapes by Kerry Dunn, Ellen Cooper, Joseph Dolderer, Lea Colie Wight, Alexandra Tyng, and Renée Foulks will be featured during this ensemble show. The exhibition begins January 30 and runs until February 28. It is free and open to the public.

Philadelphia has become a thriving contemporary art city in recent years. With numerous museums, galleries, and academies, the historic town has big city appeal without the price tag of New York, Boston, or San Francisco. Both established and emerging artists are setting up studios to create some of the boldest contemporary realists works seen today.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity for viewers to take in the work by some of Philadelphia’s— and the country’s— most exciting realists. Technical mastery, thoughtful painting, and modern flare unite these fine artists and bring Philly to Nashville.

LIGHTS

Presented by Rocketown at Rocketown

Pretty satisfying when it all comes together, isn’t it?

If you count yourself a longtime member of the devoted Cult of Lights, prepare to fully lose your mind to Little Machines. This record – a gleaming, groundbreaking, generously tuneful slab of brightly hued 21st-century techno-pop brimming with songs so immediate and timelessly pure of heart that they feel like old friends on delivery – is going to make perfect sense to you in the best way possible.

If you’re new to Lights, no worries: you’ve picked a fine place to start. Little Machines represents a dream union of, and wallopingly self-assured expansion upon, everything the diminutive Canadian singer, songwriter and synth enthusiast has done before. Now you can dive into the back catalogue with informed ears.

That catalogue has set the creative bar pretty high, for the record. Lights’s last outing, 2011’s Siberia, was a strikingly ambitious sophomore LP that turned many a head not previously turned her way by introducing layers of synthetic dissonance and juddering dubstep bass into her signature, sweetly melodic electro-pop sound. It was a struggle to get Siberia past the gatekeepers and out into the world, but when it did get out there – to a No. 3 debut and gold sales at home in Canada, more than 100,000 copies moved worldwide and no small amount of international critical acclaim – it put Lights in the perfect position to conquer the planet with her next album.

The only trouble was the next album refused to come. Despite having Siberia’s artistic risk-taking validated by positive reviews and strong sales, Lights couldn’t come up with a note or a lyric she liked for the follow-up and descended into a bottomless pit of self-doubt. It’s astonishing to think that a musician who’s demonstrated so much flagrant promise and confidence from an early age might wind up stricken with fear that it was all over by her mid-20s, but that’s what happened: Lights was convinced she’d run out of things to say. It was a case, as she puts it, of “the worst writer’s block ever.”

“In the moment, I spent so many nights just bawling,” Lights concedes over a cocktail and a nibble at Sneaky Dee’s, the hallowed Toronto punk-rock eatery and live venue where she was once a beloved enough regular to have an entire dish – the “Cactus in the Valley” nachos – named in her honour. “‘What am I gonna do? I don’t have it anymore. I’ve just lost it.’”

By now, you’ve heard at least some of Little Machines, so you know that Lights had not, in fact, lost it. But it wasn’t easy getting to this place. Oh, no.

“Siberia was one of those transitional records where I was, like, ‘Okay, I need to explore that experimental side. Let’s focus on cool sounds.’ And I kind of walked away from songwriting a bit. I was so confused after that, and I was so uninspired. And when you’re uninspired, everything sounds bad. So I just stopped listening to music. I didn’t enjoy anything. I was just living in frustrated silence.”

Lights dabbled in painting and poetry. She sought refuge in the music of the many female artists, from Patti Smith to Cyndi Lauper, who’ve inspired her over the years. She disappeared into the New Mexico hinterlands on a solo writing sojourn that found her living off the grid in an eco-friendly “earthship.” And suddenly, once she’d stopped worrying about what she was going to do next and started enjoying simply listening to music again, the songs started to flow.

Lights proved her forward-thinking electro-mettle with Siberia, so on Little Machines — working with producer/engineer Drew Pearson (Katy Perry, OneRepublic) and A-list mixer Mark “Spike” Stent (U2, Madonna, Beyoncé) — she’s allowed the futuristic electronics to sit on a more even keel with the acute sense of melody she displayed on her gold-selling 2009 debut, The Listening.

“It was about the lyrics and the melodies and dealing with the production later,” she says. “It was about getting this killer song that you could strip down and play.” Little Machines is less concerned with making a self-conscious artistic statement than its predecessor, and more concerned with letting the exuberant tunefulness of songs like the breezy “Running with the Boys,” “How We Do It” (which features the triumphant refrain: “It doesn’t go out in a blaze of glory / It’s all about how you ended up where”), and the anthemic first single “Up We Go,” sell itself unadorned.

At 27, Lights is no longer the preternaturally talented kid who signed her first deal at 15. During the writing and recording of Little Machines, she and husband Beau Bokan (of L.A. metalcore outfit Blessthefall) were expecting their first child, a daughter named Rocket Wild Bokan born this past February. Nevertheless, there’s a contagious, youthful vitality to the music that goes hand in hand with its themes of nostalgia and yearning for an escape to simpler times.

“I feel like when you learn too much about the industry and what people expect, it throws you off your game a bit,” Lights says. “So I had to strip it back down. I started reading other artists’ stories – Patti Smith and Kate Bush, where they got their inspiration. And what I started going back to was really nostalgic content. I relapsed into being a kid again, in some ways.”

She also wrestled with the age-old questions artists ask themselves: “What purpose do I serve in the world of music? What can I offer people?’” she says. “So I started writing about things that mattered to me, and those things were youth and this awesome naïveté that I used to have. I didn’t write anything that was trying to be something, which felt really good.”

After all the hard labor that went into Little Machines, Lights is now delighted to find that becoming a mother has rejuvenated her creativity. As real as the tears and late-night panics were, the writer’s block turned out to be a false alarm. She’s still got plenty left to say and, as she concludes, “I wound up making what I think is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

“Having a kid made everything else seem less scary,” Lights says. “All those stupid pressures that you get caught up in become an afterthought. It just feels like, ‘Hey, if I lose everything today, I still have this. And this is amazing.’ So it makes you want to do it. You want to make something you’re proud to leave behind. It’s not about the money you’re making or the hits you’re getting. ‘Legacy’ suddenly becomes a thing. It’s reinvigorated my desire to make great music.”

"Sabrina Fair" Theatre production

Presented by Springhouse Theatre Company (formerly Lamplighters Theatre Company) at Springhouse Theatre Company (formerly Lamplighter's Theatre)

SPRINGHOUSE THEATRE COMPANY OFFERS A MODERN RE-BOOT OF THE CINDERELLA FABLE WITH ‘SABRINA FAIR’

Springhouse Theatre Company has a long history of presently sparkling, romantic productions during the Valentine holiday season, and this year is no exception. Samuel A. Taylor’s delightful Sabrina Fair opens February 13 and runs for three weekends at Rutherford County’s Favorite Live Theatre Company.

A comedy of manners that has won the hearts of American theatre-goers for more than 60 years, Sabrina Fair is set on Long Island in the 1950s, and pits the bright, charming, well-educated and highly successful Sabrina Fairchild against Linus Larrabee, the good-humored, but cynical, elder son of the wealthy and powerful Larrabee family. Sabrina has just returned from five years in Paris, where she worked as the private secretary to the Assistant Economic Commissioner Office of Special Representative for Europe Economic Cooperation Administration. She also just happens to be the daughter of the Larrabee family chauffeur.

With an unparalleled zest for life Sabrina declares she wants to “to do everything and see everything, sense everything; to know that life is an enormous experience and must be used. To be in the world, and of the world, and never stand aside and watch.” But her real goal for returning to her childhood home is to explore her feelings for the Linus’ younger brother, David. Oh, and there is that handsome, rich Frenchman that has followed Sabrina to the States to try to win her love, too.

An unusual number of fine character parts create a fully fleshed out theatre experience. There’s the beautiful mother who is full of wit and perception; the father, whose one passion is attending funerals; the chauffeur who dabbles in the stock market and the smart magazine editor who, as a house guest, is the interested observer.

The Saturday Review called Sabrina Fair, “The best American comedy of manners in more than a decade,” while the New York Times called it “A remarkably pleasant piece of theatre,” and added, “Mr. Taylor writes in a sparkling daze of incredulity and satire.” Sabrina Fair has served as the basis for the movie Sabrina starring Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn, later remade with Harrison Ford and Julie Ormond.

Sabrina Fair is the third offering of the Middle Tennessee-based Springhouse Theatre Company’s 2014-2015 season.

Nashville Sunday Night | Sturgill Simpson (SOLD OUT)

Presented by Lightning 100 at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

PLEASE NOTE: This show sold out in no time! You can still hear the show, FREE at Lightning 100, 100.1fm or stream the live show at lightning100.com


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.
Sturgill Simpson isn’t one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, High Top Mountain, the singer-songwriter is coming out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, on May 13, 2014, through his own label, High Top Mountain Records.
The album title – an allusion to Ray Charles’ groundbreaking 1962 record, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music — hints at the psychedelic sounds found within, a departure from Simpson’s first album, which drew comparisons to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. “I think that there is a lot of room in country music for progression and sonic oscillation, which is what I wanted to explore.”
Where some artists find inspiration from other music, Simpson found his in books, devouring religious texts both ancient and modern, recent studies about discoveries in quantum physics and string theory, and publications by Carl Sagan and Terence McKenna. He also drew upon French filmmaker Gaspar Noe’s experimental drama Enter the Void as he created murky, multi-textured soundscapes that incorporate elements of classic country, bluegrass, rock, and even a bit of electronica, a genre that Simpson admits he has a “slight fetish” for.
Simpson reunited with High Top Mountain producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Lindi Ortega, Jamey Johnson) for Metamodern Sounds in Country Music; the pair has formed a strong friendship in addition to a solid in-studio partnership built on complete trust and the willingness to engage in creative musical experimentation. Working with a budget of only $4,000, Simpson and his road band – bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets, and drummer Miles Miller — cut the entire record live to tape in four rare consecutive days off in the middle of a relentless tour schedule; nearly all of the songs were completed in two takes or fewer during these spur of the moment sessions. The result is an album that crackles with the raw energy of a concert.
Even with its numerous musical and literary influences, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is, in its soul, a love record. As Simpson states, “Myriad worldly offerings – religion, drugs, and more — all claim to be the omnipotent universal truth, but in my experience, love is the only certainty. That’s what this record is about.” With a new album and a child on the way, the 35-year old singer-songwriter, who describes himself as anxious to embrace change, is about to experience a lot of it. Critics may have dubbed Sturgill Simpson the savior of traditional country music, but that’s not a title he’s willing to embrace. Shrugging, he says, “I’m just trying to save myself.”

Desert Noises

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

The name Desert Noises—like many of the band’s songs on their debut full-length 27 Ways—came out of a dream that popped into front-man Kyle Henderson’s head while sleeping. “I just woke up and wrote it down on a piece of paper,” says the 24-year-old, who used it for the band he’d first formed with his brother and a friend in the Provo/Orem, Utah, area. Joined by fellow twenty-something cohorts in bassist Tyler Osmond, guitarist Patrick Boyer and drummer Brennan Allen, the foursome set out in a van three years ago and haven’t stopped since.

Recorded in the magical Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, Texas, on the banks of the Rio Grande with producer Nick Jodoin [Black Rebel Motorcycle Club], the album turns those experiences into songs which detail 27 Ways of breaking away and becoming a touring rock ‘n’ roll band. 27 Ways incorporates influences of beat-oriented soul and R&B as well as classic psychedelic rock (Led Zeppelin is a big touchstone), often in the same song.  

Desert Noises has spent the last two years building a reputation as a must-see live act by touring relentlessly and bringing their signature brand of unbridled, infectious rock to clubs and major festivals throughout the U.S, including high-visibility gigs at the Austin City Limits Festival and LouFest in St. Louis. 

After listening to 27 Ways and experiencing their live show, it becomes abundantly clear that Desert Noises’ level of songwriting and performance is refined well beyond their years.

Willie Nelson

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Willie Hugh Nelson is an American singer-songwriter, musician, guitarist, author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound.

10YEARS

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

After a year and a half on the road touring 2010’s Feeding The Wolves, 10 Years reached a turning point. It was time to move forward and take full control of their career by launching their own label, Palehorse Records.  In addition, the band decided to self-produce their fourth album, Minus the Machine, at drummer/guitarist Brian Vodinh’s Kashmir Recording.
Splitting up with a major label after five years was “a very scary step to take,” Hasek admits. “It’s like breaking up with a longtime girlfriend. You’re used to the motions, but when it becomes stale and unhappy, you need to move on and get energy back into your life. There was no anger on either side. We just painlessly parted ways.”
Working together as a band for the first time since writing the Gold-selling album The Autumn Effect helped 10 Years go back to their roots, without label-enforced pressure to create a radio-friendly “hit,” and free to experiment with the hard rock sounds that lie at the core of their music. “Our true fans who buy the albums, not just the singles, understand that our singles, for the most part, misrepresent the entire album,” says Hasek. “As a band, we like to explore more and go a little left of center with song structures. We wanted to create an album that has no boundaries, and where we didn’t have to make every song ‘three minutes and 30 seconds’ for a label to approve it. There’s a fine line with that, of course, and we’re very aware of it. We all grew up on rock music, and as many albums as we’ve written, the way we’ve written them, it’s ingrained in us to work within a time frame that fits radio. There are definitely songs that work well for that, but as a whole, we wanted this album to represent a journey in a sense.”

Current Swell

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Cultivating the unique moments when a first take becomes the final cut, or when a fleeting idea turns into a fully realized creation, has become something of an unofficial philosophy for Current Swell.

Considering the pace they have set in recent years - including a first place win and $100,500 top prize at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project and sold-out headlining tours of Brazil and Europe - Current Swell had no reason to re-write their approach heading into the sessions for Ulysses, the band's anticipated second release for Nettwerk Records.

Not after a six-year run which has positioned the group as one of the bright lights on the Canadian musical landscape.

But here's the thing with Current Swell. When it comes to the process of songwriting, touring and recording, the four friends from Victoria, BC are compelled to improve as artists, to better what they did the last time around. Motion is everything to singer-guitarists Scott Stanton and David Lang, drummer Chris Petersen and bassist Ghosty Boy, so they decided to give an old partnership a new coat of paint.

During each of the four previous Current Swell recordings, Stanton and Lang largely wrote independently of each other, working in tandem only when the band got into the studio. For these sessions, the two bandmates sat down face-to-face on a number of occasions. The rules were kept loose on purpose, so that both could look at the other’s creations in an unfiltered light.

“For this record, we really worked together, even if it was a half-finished song,” Stanton said. “Sometimes, it was nothing but an idea or a chord progression or a melody, and we’d sit there and write an entire song together.”

"That's how we did things when we first started writing together, years ago, simply because we lived together," Lang added. "It was fun to get back to what I feel like are our roots from way back then."

The early days of the group stretch back to St. Albert, Alberta, an Edmonton suburb where Lang and Stanton first met. It wasn't until their paths crossed again on Vancouver Island that the thought of playing music together came to fruition. Shortly after its first official gig, the band quickly became an in-demand attraction in Western Canada, backed by growing acclaim from across the country.

Theirs hasn’t been a traditional career arc. Shortly after Current Swell came together, the members spent five months touring Bali, New Zealand and Australia as an independent act. A bold move, but one that has come to define the band’s music-first mindset and catch-all musical approach.

Music fans across North America first caught wind of the group through “Young and Able,” which became a word-of-mouth YouTube success in 2010. Not long after, the group broke big with 2012's Long Time Ago, its first worldwide release. These recordings inspired fans from across the globe to create hundreds of tribute videos of the hits - some of which weren't in English - and opened new doors for the group.

The success of the album led to a run of dates across Europe, Australia, Canada and the U.S. These and other key festival dates (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock The Shores, Ottawa Blues Festival, Rifflandia Festival and more) would help to introduce the band’s textured, deep-groove roots music (some of which is punctuated by Stanton's lap steel guitar work) to a larger international audience of both fans and music industry supporters.

With its core fan base demanding new music, the band slowly began showcasing its new material in concert during the summer of 2013. A half-dozen songs from Ulysses were in and out of the band's set at a few shows, which gave Current Swell immediate feedback on its progress, Lang said. "It's interesting what you learn in front of an audience. It is so easy to see what needs to be tweaked when you are playing it for someone who is a blank slate."

In the spirit of the historic poem after which the album was named, the band found itself on a journey through new, more concise terrain once it got into the studio. Current Swell spent the better part of six months recording Long Time Ago; the don’t-mess-with-a-good-thing approach could have easily been employed this time around. Instead, the band knocked Ulysses out in 20 days.

“We got in the studio, put our heads down, got it down and we were out,” Stanton said with a laugh. “It was so refreshing. We didn’t overthink anything. As long as we could re-create it live, that was our only rule.”

That was an important decision in the process, given all that Current Swell has achieved on stages across the world.

The band is at its strongest before a live audience, which isn’t to say that it feels out of place in the studio. Especially not when they had a producer like Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Sand) working his magic inside of Vancouver’s iconic Greenhouse Studios.

Ulysses captures every bit of warmth the studio’s massive Neve console could provide, as heard on “Rollin’” (a showcase for Stanton’s exemplary slide work), the title track “Ulysses,” rocker “Keys to the Kingdom” and the readymade sing-along “One Day I’ll Be Rich.”

Current Swell has every intention of adding to its international legacy with Ulysses. There is an inherent sense of confidence in the group, one that comes from its years of shared experience.  With so much set before them in 2014, there's no telling where the year will take the band. And in a lot of ways, that uncertain aspect of the journey is what keeps Current Swell bent on moving forward, Lang said.

“It’s scary to set goals because you can fail. But as long as we see ourselves growing and not feeling stagnant, we have accomplished what we set out to do."

The Lone Bellow w/ Odessa

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Then Came the Morning, the second album by the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based indie-folk trio the Lone Bellow, opens with a crest of churchly piano, a patter of drums, and a fanfare of voices harmonizing like a sunrise. It’s a powerful introduction, enormous and overwhelming, as Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin testify mightily to life’s great struggles and joys, heralding the morning that dispels the dark night: “Then came the morning! It was bright, like the light that you kept from your smile!” Working with producer Aaron Dessner of the National, the Lone Bellow has created a sound that mixes folk sincerity, gospel fervor, even heavy metal thunder, but the heart of the band is harmony: three voices united in a lone bellow.

Saints of Valory

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Saints of Valory is the type of band that swings for the bleachers, crafting dramatic, sweeping, arena-ready rock filled with elegant pop hooks, shimmering guitars, and emotionally genuine lyrics. Songs like the rhythmically charged “Kids,” “Long Time Coming,” and “Neon Eyes” (all of which appear on the band’s current EP Possibilities) are widescreen in scope, announcing the considerable ambition of these self-assured newcomers as they gear up for the release of Into The Deep, their debut album for F Stop/Atlantic Records.

Craft Spells with The Bilinda Butchers

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Toward the end of 2009, in a bedroom in Stockton, California -- previously known only in the music world for producing Stephen Malkmus' Pavement -- a 21-year-old Justin Paul Vallesteros began experimenting with simple synth and guitar lines, gradually layering them to create the sound that would become Craft Spells. Joined by guitarist Frankie Soto, the Seattle-born Vallesteros recorded "Party Talk," a smoky dream pop track that would first introduce the band to the blogosphere -- an important tool for any up-and-coming artist from a small town at the time. This combination of lo-fi and D.I.Y. press attention created a buzz for the EP Beauty Above All, which eventually led to Brooklyn-based label Captured Tracks signing the band.

moe.

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

moe. is the preeminent progressive rock band on the music scene today. With 20 years of touring and just as many albums under its belt, the quintet of Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey on guitars and vocals, Rob Derhak on bass and vocals, Jim Loughlin on percussion and vibes, and Vinnie Amico on Drums, continues to push the standard for performance art.

Critical acclaim and a solid national and international fan base has built a
dedicated following that grows each year. Whether touring across the globe,
headlining music festivals, or sharing the stage with such celebrated acts
as the Allmans, The Who, or Robert Plant, among others, what keeps moe. at
the forefront of the music scene is not only the energy and vitality of
their music and songwriting, but the showmanship in which it is delivered.

From its humble, inconspicuous beginnings as a local bar band in Buffalo in
the late 1980s, to headlining Radio City Music Hall two year's straight on New Year's Eve, moe.'s journey has been one of hard work, perseverance, and
dedication. Their music is clever, melodic, refined; their performances are
entertaining, mesmerizing and epic. There's a reason that Rolling Stone
magazine placed Chuck and Al among the top twenty new "guitar gods," why the pair were featured in Guitar World and Modern Guitar; why Jim and Vinnie have been featured in Drum! magazine; why Rob in Bass Player and State of Mind magazines - all in the same year - because they're that good!
Critically acclaimed for its songwriting and studio work, the group's 2001 studio album, DITHER, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone. 2003's WORMWOOD received four stars by Blender Magazine. Their two latest efforts, THE CONCH and STICKS & STONES, received rave reviews including Rolling Stone, Paste, and Blender magazine. In honor of their 20th Anniversary, the band released SMASH HITS, VOLUME 1. Billed as a "Young Person's Guide to moe.", the album features band and fan favorites – some recast in new recordings that showcase the band's ongoing evolution. "It's what we and others perceive as our strongest crowd pleasers of the past twenty years," Rob muses. "It's a compilation that you can listen to over and over again. Something your mother might enjoy."

2015 Nashville Lawn & Garden Show

Presented by Horticultural Association of Tennessee at Tennessee State Fairgrounds & Nashville Expo Center

The Nashville Lawn & Garden Show will mark its 26th Anniversary on Thursday, March 5, through Sunday, March 8, 2015.  The theme for this year’s show is Gardens of Eden; participating garden companies will be encouraged to create Paradise with displays covering more than an acre inside the Creative Arts building at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

“The Garden of Eden was the first garden and obviously the best.   The Garden of Eden also contained a mix of all forms of gardening such as flowering plants, fruits and vegetables not unlike what we are striving for today,” said Randall Lantz, co-manager of the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show.

The Show is actually four unique shows in one. The centerpiece of the Show is the walk-through, interactive garden displays from some of Middle Tennessee’s top landscape and gardening companies. Then, visitors can enjoy the floral design gallery where designs from more than 20 of the region’s top floral designers are on display. Next, sit-in on one of the free lectures offered on a variety of topics ranging from beekeeping to edible gardens. Finally, take in The Marketplace where more than 150 vendors fill 250 exhibit booths with a variety of plants, seeds, home décor, gardening equipment, books, and free advice for your next gardening project.

The Nashville Lawn & Garden show is Tennessee’s largest and most popular annual gardening event.  More than 18,000 people from around the mid-south region visit the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show each year.  The family friendly show is indoors and is fully handicapped accessible.  There is plenty of convenient parking at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

Additional Show information will be announced in the coming months; tickets will be available online in late 2014.

Justin Willman

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

The Los Angeles Times calls Justin Willman, “a new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups.” From his monthly sell-out shows in the back of a trendy LA comic book shop to huge theaters and music venues across the country, Justin has become one of the busiest touring performers in America. His comedy-flavored miracles have earned him a devoted cult following as well as frequent television appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sweet-toothed frosting fans will recognize Justin as the magical host of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network for the past nine seasons, but his greatest trick to date was receiving a standing ovation from President Obama following a private performance at the White House. How did he do it? Magnets.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Justin began entertaining at the age of 12. After breaking both of his arms trying to ride a bicycle while wearing rollerblades (a hopeless attempt to impress girls), he started learning card tricks as an alternative to physical therapy. Nicknamed by his mother as “Justin Kredible”, he officially turned pro when his parents hired him to perform at his sister’s fifth birthday party. (He still has not been paid for the gig.)
Justin is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, and currently resides in Los Angeles. He does not own a rabbit.

Young Tennessee Artists: 2014 Statewide Upper-Level Studio Art

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

This fifth biennial exhibition showcases a selection of the finest artwork created in Advanced Placement*(AP) and International Baccalaureate** (IB) studio art programs throughout Tennessee in 2014. The thirty-nine drawings, paintings, photographs, and mixed-media works represent student artists from sixteen schools and were chosen from 600 submissions statewide.

Upper-level high school art programs provide opportunities for highly motivated students to concentrate on studio practice and refine their artwork through ongoing critical investigation and reflection. With the encouragement and guidance of committed AP and IB teachers, these students produce works that challenge their artistic perceptions and develop their aesthetic methods, both conceptually and in terms of execution. At the end of the school year, these students submit a body of work for review by either the AP College Board or IB examiners. The assessments enable colleges to acknowledge and encourage students’ accomplishments by granting them credit for these courses.

This exhibition reveals the students’ execution of thoughtful artworks that skillfully synthesize form, technique, and content. The range and quality of work demonstrates a growing sophistication of AP and IB Studio Art programs across the state.

Nashville Sunday Night | Houndmouth with Twin Lamb

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.

That first November 2011 night, when it all fell together at the Green House, was nothing more complicated than four friends playing music, armed with something to drink and a curiosity about what might happen. They were the generation who has come of age in the new economy, already adept at shuffling jobs and get-bys, firmly acclimated to the diminished expectations that come with growing up somewhere the rest of the world assumes is nowhere. Which, in this case, is New Albany, Indiana.
Houndmouth, then, knew each other from…around. Matt Myers and Zak Appleby had played in cover bands together for years, schooled in blues and classic rock and Motown, toughened by indifferent audiences and the clatter of empty bottles. Matt and Katie Toupin had worked as an acoustic duo for three years, when she wasn’t on the road tending to a straight job. Katie and Shane Cody had gone to high school together, before Shane disappeared off to Chicago and New York to study audio engineering. In the beginning it was Shane and Matt who’d started knocking around at first, just drums and guitar, once Shane got home and free of a brief bluegrass flirtation.
The rest happened in a tumble, Zak and Katie switching from guitars to bass and keyboards, respectively. Four months later, their homemade EP in hand, Houndmouth made the pilgrimage to South By Southwest. Their booking agent convinced Rough Trade’s Geoff Travis to come have a listen. Of such things are dreams made. Months of conversation and a proper studio later, their debut album, From the Hills Below the City, will be released by Rough Trade.
“We lucked out,” Matt says. “We knew we were making good music. We knew we had something. But we didn’t know it would escalate so quickly. Always the element of luck.”
Before and after that bit of luck, Houndmouth have been on the road, building their audience. Working. Opening for the Drive-By Truckers, the Lumineers, the Alabama Shakes, Lucero, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Headlining on their own. Turning heads.
“You know good art when you see it,” says Newport Folk Festival booker Jay Sweet, an early adopter, “and you know good food when you taste it. Well, you also know good music when you hear it, and when I first heard Houndmouth it was like freshest tasting art I had heard in many moons. A true musical omnivore’s delight.”
“I’m going down where nobody knows me,” they sing during the jaunty chorus of “On the Road.” The opening track to From the Hills Below the City, which is more or less the relationship New Albany has to Louisville, across the river: “I had a job had to leave behind me…I had to move to another city.” A two and a half minute slightly bent pop confection, conscious of all kinds of music which went before. Self-conscious about nothing, not even the neo-rap cutting contest that snaps across one break. A blues for now, then.

Santana

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards.  He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMYs. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and, along with Barbara Streisand, is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. Earlier this year, Santana released his first ever Latin Music album entitled Corazón on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia, featuring superstar collaborative performances by Latin Music’s finest. The album is certified U.S. Latin Double Platinum and was the top selling Latin Music album in the United States for six consecutive weeks. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. This fall, Carlos Santana released his memoir “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.” It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.

Odesza

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

In 2012, a striking new voice emerged from the wider surge of electronic music in the U.S. ODESZA’s Summer’s Gone stood out from the crowd; it was a collection of songs, not just beats; and its irresistible, startling dreaminess, addictive drums and fathoms-deep bass set it apart from the by-the-numbers brutality of EDM’s also-rans. In an age of manufactured internet buzz and carefully plotted hype, ODESZA’s story was refreshingly authentic: A brilliant new duo unveiled their music on the internet, and the world paid attention.

Harrison Mills (aka CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (aka BeachesBeaches) began recording together after meeting at Western Washington University. There was instant chemistry, and the pair worked prolifically, quickly carving out a distinctive, heady sound: glitched-out vocals, soaring, visceral melody and ear-gripping drums. Two songs from Summer’s Gone – “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen” – instantly leapt to number 1 on the Hype Machine Popular Chart. ODESZA began to make evangelical fans, with word of their music setting the world – both real and virtual – alight.

MURDER BY DEATH with O'Death

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

On the surface, Murder By Death is a Bloomington, IN quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matched by a specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock.
Murder By Death’s path began in the early 2000s as most Midwestern college-town groups do, by playing to small crowds at ratty venues and frenzied house parties. While many of their formative-year scene-mates failed to make it much further than campustown’s borders, Murder By Death translated their anonymous beginnings into a 10+ year career founded on a bedrock of five full-length albums, tireless D.I.Y. touring and performing ethics, and, most importantly, a dedicated, cult-like fanbase.

Blue Mother Tupelo with Jericho Woods and E.B. Anderson & The Resolutes

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Rising up from the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, through the Delta lowlands and muddy banks of Indianola, Mississippi comes the unique Southern Soul sound of Blue Mother Tupelo.

ONLY SUNSHINE - fresh, exciting and raw - is Blue Mother Tupelo's fourth studio album and it's set for release in early 2014. It features 10 original songs including co-writes with the award winning and highly regarded Kim Richey, Will Kimbrough, & Ryan Tyndell. North MIssissippi Hill Country, Country Soul, and raw 1970s Rock and Roll are interwoven throughout. Magnetic, familiar, and brand new, ONLY SUNSHINE is American music that'll pull you in to stomp and sway. It's an album in the truest sense and, from start to finish, it meaningfully flows with life's highs and lows.

Ricky and Micol began their musical life together as (The) Blue Mother Tupelo at an open mic night at Sassy Ann's in Knoxville, Tennessee in the Springtime of 1995. They'd been married almost a year. That night turned into a standing Wednesday night gig for awhile and over the next couple of years they were graced with the gifts of musicians of all kinds sitting in to jam until settling in as an electric four-some for some time, releasing their 1997 debut album, MY SIDE OF THE ROAD.

Vanguard recording artist, Mindy Smith, who had just moved from Knoxville to Nashville a few months earlier, encouraged Ricky and Micol to come to Music City. The pair picked up & moved to Nashville in 1998 where open mics, jam sessions and songwriter rounds prepared them for BMT's 2001 release, DELTA LOW ~ MOUNTAIN HIGH.

Movimientos: Artworks by Jairo Prado

Presented by Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture at Vanderbilt Divinity School at Vanderbilt University - Divinity School

The opening and reception for Colombian artist, Jairo Prado's Movimientos takes place on Thursday, January 15th in room G-20, ground floor of Vanderbilt Divinity School. After Thursday's opening, ongoing gallery hours are Mondays 1:10pm-3:00pm; Tuesdays 1:00pm-3:00pm, Wednesdays 12:10pm-2:00pm, and by appointment.

Jairo Prado spent his childhood in Bogotá, Colombia. When Prado was six years old, an artist from the university rented a room from his grandmother. Watching the artist work, Prado felt immense joy and knew that art would be his life. Prado attended, among other institutions, the District School of the Arts, National University in Bogotá. Since then, his works have been included in numerous juried exhibitions and have been purchased for museum, corporate, and private collections. Perhaps the most visible of Prado's aesthetic contributions to his adopted home in Nashville, TN is "Migration," a 30'x12' mosaic mural commissioned by Conexión Américas for Casa Azafrán on Nolensville Road. Arched above the doors of Casa Azafrán, the mural functions as a gateway to the cultural diversity that now defines Nashville.

Prado's Divinity school show includes plaster sculptures, etchings, abstract paintings, and paintings of what appear to be traditional Colombian scenes that, with closer inspection, are haunted by shadows of violence and division.

Gang of Four

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

UK’s legendary post-punk GANG OF FOUR will release a new album, What Happens Next, on February 24, 2015 on Metropolis Records in the USA and Canada, and Membran in Europe. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed album Content, What Happens Next features collaborations with Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Robbie Furze from The Big Pink, Gail Ann Dorsey, German superstar Herbert Gro?nemeyer and Japanese superstar Hotei.

The first album without vocalist Jon King, What Happens Next refers to both the outside world and the band itself: an emphatic commitment to the future. “The focus is

more on universal issues, like how individuals behave in certain ways or how our world is constructed, than local issues or current affairs,” says founding guitarist and songwriter Andy Gill. “Gang of Four is anything but parochial.” When King left the project, a reinvigorated Gill seized the opportunity to re-imagine Gang of Four from the ground up. The new album is an unexpected twist that still operates as the next logical step for the legendary post-punk.

Sandwiched between Joy Division’s landmark album Unknown Pleasures and Led Zepellin’s iconic IV, Gang of Four’s debut Entertainment! sits at #8 on Pitchfork’s Top 100 of the 1970s, proclaiming it “caustic and bursting with

disgust for unethical capitalism, opportunist politicians and consumer society, among other things, but it's also crafted with amazing pop sensibility - and is, of course, remarkably danceable.” Earlier this year, that same album was found

on Kurt Cobain’s handwritten list of favorite albums. Echoing the singular importance of the band’s impact on music, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello told Rolling Stone this past July 2014 that “there’s no one more influential on my guitar playing than Andy Gill.” 

Having been named a massive influence by many artists including Bloc Party, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, The Rapture, Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem, among hundreds of others, Gang of Four’s legacy continues not by being frozen in a moment in time, but by constant evolution while remaining true to the original spirit of the band.

What Happens Next was written and produced by Andy Gill in London. The lead single from What Happens Next is “Broken Talk”, which features vocals from Alison Mosshart and is available to stream now. https://soundcloud.com/gangoffour/broken-talk. 

Gang of Four is Andy Gill (guitar), John “Gaoler” Sterry (vocals), Thomas McNiece (bass) and Jonny Finnegan (drums).

Dave Attell

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Dave Attell is currently the creator and host of “Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime. He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material that can best be
described as "very adult" has earned him the reputation as a "comic's comic." But if you ask Attell, he’d say, "I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks."
In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, "Insomniac with Dave Attell" for Comedy Central. A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the

Mel Tillis

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Mel moved to Nashville as an aspiring songwriter in 1957 after Webb Pierce had a Top 5 hit with “I’m Tired,” a song Mel says Webb first heard Ray Price singing backstage at the Opry.

Pierce also had a hit with Mel’s “I Ain’t Never,” and, soon, Mel was writing hits for all sorts of singers: Bobby Bare (“Detroit City”), Ray Price (“One More Time,” “Heart Over Mind,” “Burning Memories”), Jack Greene (“All the Time”), Kenny Rogers and the First Edition (“Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”), and Ricky Skaggs (“Honey (Open That Door)”).

At the same time, Mel launched a recording career that has yielded 67 Top 40 hits, including chart-toppers like his own version of “I Ain’t Never,” “Coca Cola Cowboy,” “Good Woman Blues,” and “Southern Rains.” In 1972, the Country Music Association named him Entertainer of the Year.

Mel also stepped out of the country music world and tried his hand at acting. He appeared in several television movies and the feature films like Every Which Way But Loose, W.W. & The Dixie Dance Kings, and Uphill All the Way.

Today, new generations continue to discover the songs of the man who received the Academy of Country Music’s Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award in 2010: Opry member Alison Krauss and Robert Plant revived his “Stick With Me Baby,” originally written for the Everly Brothers, for their Grammy-winning Raising Sand album, and Jamey Johnson covered “Mental Revenge” for his 2010 album, The Guitar Song.

Nashville Sunday Night | Sons Of Bill PLUS The London Souls

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.

“This is a record that takes me back to some of the creative heights we achieved in Wilco,” says producer Ken Coomer about Sons of Bill’s latest LP Love and Logic, due out on Thirty Tigers September 30, 2014. “I’m only interested in making records that are still going to be relevant ten years from now, and this is one of them. It’s unmistakably the real thing.”

This is an ambitious album for the three brothers Sam, Abe, and James Wilson, who share equal duty singing and writing throughout Love and Logic. The Virginia roots obviously run deep, with dreamy pedal steel, banjo, and three part harmonies that could have only been learned at church. But the record moves into enough layered pop productions and rock and roll bravado throughout to keep you guessing as to just who these boys are, and what they’ve been listening to.

It’s easy to say that Sons of Bill can sound more like Townes Van Zandt or early R.E.M. depending on the track, even moving into their own brand of down-home psychedelia that American Songwriter described as a “countrified Pink Floyd.” But the real achievement of Love and Logic is the songwriting, the Wilson brothers’ ability to craft literate and deeply introspective lyrics while still managing to deliver it all as a rock and roll band. It’s a soul-searcher’s soundtrack for an over-stimulated age. A roots rock album that stands out in 2014.

Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the Sirens LP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012. The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic. But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.

No doubt the single biggest influence on the band is their father and namesake, William Wilson, professor emeritus of theology and literature at the University of Virginia and part-time picker in the Virginia piedmont. There was no stereo in the Wilson household, but the home was filled with songs: Hymns, murder ballads, songs about love, songs about work, songs about death, all played with the passion of a southern gentleman who could never quite shake the cold light of professorial logic.

“We didn’t grow up with our parents’ Beatles and Stones records,” says Abe. “We didn’t really grow up with any records at all. We had to discover most rock and roll on our own. But we grew up with my dad singing, and felt at a young age how much it all meant to him. We learned that music wasn’t just pleasurable, it was important.” So while the subject matter of Love and Logic may not stray too far from the tradition, it’s this sense of urgency, a heady theological quality, which gives it legs, and makes Sons of Bill stand out amongst their contemporaries.

In songs like “Bad Dancer,” James (who teaches a course on William Faulkner when he’s not touring with his brothers) wrestles with young love, his father’s expectations, and the trials of being a sensitive Southern boy: “Once Southern boys they all loved R.E. Lee, and once Southern girls loved R.E.M. Were they all in confederacy against you? Or were you just like them?”

James is an obvious Virginian of the old school, being both a writer and teacher as well as a musician. While lots of people are selling the South these days– NASCAR, bass boats, and barbecue– there’s a complicated, more beautiful and literary side of Dixie that hasn’t been aired out in pop music.

“I think, in an abstract way, that Faulkner is a writer who reinvented what Southern literature means for his time and place, and he ended up with something new and yet timeless” says James. “When I listen to some so-called ‘Southern’ bands these days, I can’t help but feel some dishonesty, like what is timeless and meaningful about the people and its history is being sold cheap.”

On Love and Logic, James’ earnest, ardent voice contrasts with his brother Abe’s, a soft-spoken pianist with a sly, more British sense of melody and structure who emerges as the real poet of the band. Songs like “Lost in The Cosmos,” a haunting waltz dedicated to Big Star’s lesser known and suicidal front-man Chris Bell, lulls the listener with a cadence of searching phrases that whirr around in your head a long time after his songs have gone silent.

Sam Wilson is the eldest of the brothers and the most accomplished musician in the band, a classical guitar major who spent half a decade as a jazz musician in New York City. Sam is the reason there were no auxiliary musicians on Love and Logic, as he jumps from guitarto pedal steel, piano, dobro, vibraphone, to vocals depending on the track. But it’s Sam’s sound on the pedal steel that really holds Love and Logic together sonically, as it moves from folksy to ethereal, familiar to unexpected, glib to heartbreaking.

What makes Sons of Bill so great is their ability to be so unabashedly at home with themselves in a time when some roots bands feel like they are trying a little bit too hard, and rock and roll bands are starting to feel desperately over-conceptualized. Maybe that’s part of playing music with your brothers: No point in faking it.

Hozier with George Ezra

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

It’s been a whirlwind year for the soulful Hozier since posting his heartrending video for “Take Me To Church” on YouTube, which has amassed over ten million views.   The rousing song is among the most reactive at Top 40 radio and Adult Top 40 radio, rocketing to #1 at the Triple A radio format, and currently approaching Top 5 at Alternative Radio. Early (and continued) support for the single was garnered across multiple SIRIUSXM channels.  “Take Me To Church” has scored a combined total of more than 500,000 tracks sold – all before the self-titled album’s official release on October 7th.  Hozier recently nailed a string of electrifying performances on The Late Show With David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show – and being awarded a coveted performance slot as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on October 11th.  Hozier is the first debut artist of 2014 to be booked on the show's new season.

“Take Me To Church” has also become one of the most incredible Spotify success stories since the streaming service began six years ago.  “The most viral artists Spotify has ever seen,” raved the Spotify News, with the song surpassing 20 million streams and Hozier landing six songs in the US Spotify Viral 50.

Calling his upcoming album a “mixed bag,” Hozier acknowledges influences of blues, folk, and soul – shredding this all-encompassing blend into a deftly woven signature sound that can be heard on his first two EPs, Take Me To Church and From Eden.  Hozier co- produced the new album with Rob Kirwan (PJ Harvey and Depeche Mode), and fans who pre-order the self-titled debut receive a sizeable preview with five instant grat downloads made available: “Take Me To Church,” “From Eden,” “Work Song,” Cherry Wine” and “Jackie and Wilson.”

Faith Community Nursing Class Hosted by Saint Thomas Health

Presented by Saint Thomas Health

Saint Thomas Health is pleased to again offer the Foundations of Faith Community Nursing, a course that provides basic preparation for registered nurses to become Faith Community Nurses (FCN). Faith Community or “Parish” Nursing is a specialized area of independent nursing practice in which registered nurses care for individuals and groups within a congregation to promote overall wellness in the community.

The Saint Thomas Health FCN program will host the 32-hour course on March 6th, 7th, 20th, 21st, 2015, at Saint Thomas West Hospital. Classes are open to registered nurses throughout Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama. Classes on each of the 4 days will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Faith community nursing embraces the historical connection between faith and health. FCN is recognized by the American Nurses Association (ANA) as a specialized area of nursing that prepares registered nurses to serve as a member of the ministry staff of a faith community. Emerging as one of the fastest growing movements in nursing today, FCN focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting wholistic health and preventing or minimizing illness in a faith community.

The Foundations Course is based on ANA’s Scope and Standards of Practice for Faith Community Nursing and meets the requirements established by the International Parish Nurse Resource Center (IPNRC). The Foundations course focuses on the primary functions of a parish nurse: 1) integrator of faith and health, 2) health counselor, 3) health educator, 4) referral agent, 5) health advocate, 6) coordinator of volunteers and 7) developer of support groups. It is organized around four core concepts: spirituality, professionalism, wholistic health and community.

Faith community nurses help their congregations in many ways, including health education, resource and referral services, post-discharge home visits reducing potential for return hospitalization, counseling or support groups, health fairs, blood pressure clinics and parenting classes.



03/06/15 - 03/21/15

Class fees have been substantially reduced through the generous support of Saint Thomas Health System. Class fee is $100 and includes all educational materials and meals. Clergy support from candidates’ local church is recommended.

The Beach Boys

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Emerging at the vanguard of the "California Sound", the band's early music gained international popularity for their distinct vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. Influenced by jazz-based vocal groups, 1950s rock and roll, and doo-wop, Brian led the band to experiment with several genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic and baroque while devising novel approaches to music production and arranging. While initially managed by the Wilsons' father Murry, Brian's creative ambitions and sophisticated songwriting abilities dominated the group's musical direction.

Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Jason Bonham, born (July 15, 1966), British drummer and son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham.

A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain family and friends, maybe in the living room, maybe sing a little, play an instrument. No big deal and a good way to get used to performing for others. But when Jason Bonham was a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played his drums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group Bad Company. That's what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one of the original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin.

At the age of only five, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set of them, with skill. When he was 17 he was a member of the band Air Race. The group signed a record contract with Atlantic Records, recorded one album, and opened for big names like Queen, Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent, and AC/DC. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father's memory alive.

In 1988, Jason took his father's spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later than year. he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him.

By 1989, he completed the album The Disregard of Timekeeping, in his new band called "Bonham". One of the tracks from this first effort, "Wait for You," earned him a gold record. By 1992, with partners like Canadian vocalist Daniel MacMaster, guitarist Ian Hatton, and bassist and keyboardist John Smithson, Bonham finished another album: Mad Hatter.

Jason teamed up with greats like Paul Rodgers, Slash, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck and others in 1993 to work on a Tribute to Muddy Waters album. The record's success brought a nomination for a Grammy Award. A year later, Jason, along with Rodgers and Slash, appeared at the memorable Woodstock II. That same year, he recorded a new album, Peace 4 Me, in his group now known as Motherland with Marti Frederksen on vocals.

In May 1990, Jason married Jan Charteris, in Stone, Kidderminster in a wedding reception that included a jam with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones.

Jason represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 1995, with his sister Zoe by his side. He soon put together another solo project which culminated in "In the Name of My Father - The Zepset" cd, which featured the songs of Led Zeppelin. Proceeds from the album went to charity. The album followed up with When You See the Sun.

The Healing Sixes soon caught his attention and decided to tour and record them the Indiana-based band, from 1999--2003. In 2001, Jason appeared in the film Rock Star which starred Mark Wahlberg. The band in the movie, Steel Dragon recorded the songs featured in the movie and the soundtrack.

Following an album with Debbie Bonham, the younger sister of John Bonham, Jason was invited to drum for hard rock group UFO. In 2006, he also recorded with Joe Bonamassa.


Jason starred with Ted Nugent, Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) on the VH1 reality tv show, "SuperGroup", in May 2006. The musicians formed a band called Damnocracy for the show, during which they lived in a mansion in Las Vegas for twelve days and created music. Most recently, Jason has performed and recorded with Foreigner.

On December 10th, 2007, Jason played drums in the most anticipated concert of all time - the Led Zeppelin reunion at London's O2 arena with surviving members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant.

Misterwives

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

MisterWives are an indie pop band based in New York City. Formed in 2012 around the core trio of singer/keyboardist Mandy Lee, bassist William Hehir, and drummer Etienne Bowler, they have an unusual sound that combines elements of synth pop, folk, and indie rock, falling somewhere between the quirky dance-pop of No Doubt and the pastoral folk-rock of Of Monsters and Men. After adding guitarist Marc Campbell and multi-instrumentalist Dr. Blum, the group began recording its debut EP, Reflections, which was released on New York indie Photo Finish Records. With just one EP and some demos to their name, MisterWives have garnered much buzz among major music publications like Interview, Paste, and MTV Buzzworthy.

Deerhoof

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really?

From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.

Deerhoof has released 11 self-produced albums and continues to tour the world frequently. The members of Deerhoof are Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier.

Circa Survive with Special Guests Balance & Composure and Chon

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Circa Survive is an alternative rock band consisting of former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green and members of the now-defunct This Day Forward, including guitarists Brendan Ekstrom and Colin Frangicetto. Compared to the sound of Green’s former group, the music of Circa Survive taps a different musical influence for Green, who cites Paul Simon, Dredg, and Björk among later artists who have more influence on his vocal stylings in Circa Survive which are comparatively less aggressive, as well as his songwriting. 

After going back to his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in 2004 for a dental appointment, Anthony Green went back to the airport to return to California and his Saosin mates. However, he suddenly had an epiphany - that despite the fact that Saosin was close to breaking out, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. To him, Saosin was “a girl that you had great sex with, yet had little in common with,” as Green himself affectionately said. He returned to Colin Frangicetto, a friend who he had “jammed” with during his stay, and they decided to begin recording and recruiting. Thus, Circa Survive was born.

Colin Frangicetto and Anthony Green, with full support from Equal Vision Records, then recruited Brendan Ekstrom. Ekstrom had been Frangicetto’s bandmate in This Day Forward. Both Ekstrom and Frangicetto had toured with Taken during their This Day Forward days, and procured Nick Beard, previous bassist of Taken, as Circa Survive’s next member. The band met Steve Clifford through Vadim Taver of the band Marigold; ” jammed with us for a week and from there it was on,” says Frangicetto.

Father John Misty with King Tuff

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

When discussing 'Father John Misty', Tillman paraphrases Philip Roth: 'It's all of me and none of me, if you can't see that, you won't get it'. What I call it is totally arbitrary, but I like the name. You've got to have a name. I never got to choose mine."

He goes on, "'People who make records are afforded this assumption by the culture that their music is coming from an exclusively personal place, but more often than not what you hear are actually the affectations of an 'alter-ego' or a cartoon of an emotionally heightened persona," says Josh Tillman, who has been recording/releasing solo albums since 2003 and who recently left Seattle's Fleet Foxes after playing drums from 2008-2011. "That kind of emotional quotient isn't sustainable if your concern is portraying a human-being made up of more than just chest-beating pathos. I see a lot of rampant, sexless, male-fantasy everywhere in the music around me. I didn't want any alter-egos, any vagaries, fantasy, escapism, any over-wrought sentimentality. I like humor and sex and mischief. So when you think about it, it's kind of mischievous to write about yourself in a plain-spoken, kind of explicitly obvious way and call it something like 'Misty'. I mean, I may as well have called it 'Steve'".

Musically, Fear Fun consists of such disparate elements as Waylon Jennings, Harry Nilsson, Arthur Russell, "All Things Must Pass," and "Physical Graffiti," often within the same song. Tillman's voice has never been better and often sounds like Roy Orbison, "The Caruso of Rock", at his most joyous, while the music maintains a dark, mysterious and yet conversely playful, almost Dionysian quality. Lyrically, his absurdist fever dreams of pain and pleasure elicit, in equal measures, the blunt descriptive power of Bukowski or Brautigan, the hedonist-philosophy of Oscar Wilde and the dried-out wit of Loudon Wainwright III.

Martin Sextion Mix Tape Tour

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Remember that mix tape your friend made you way back when - the one that's etched in your soul? Martin Sexton's new album Mix Tape of the Open Road is that musical cross-country trip, blazing through all territories of style, as you cruise through time and place. This record is a charm bracelet of twelve gems all strung together with the golden thread of what Rolling Stone calls his "soul marinated voice." Sexton will perform tunes from Mix Tape as well as your favorite Martin classics on this tour.

A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the tenth of 12 children, Martin Sexton grew up in the ’80s. Uninterested in the music of the day, he fueled his dreams with the timeless sounds of classic rock ’n’ roll. As he discovered the dusty old vinyl left in the basement by one his big brothers, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene. His 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, In the Journey, was recorded on an old 8-track in a friend’s attic. He managed to sell 20,000 copies out of his guitar case.

Happily and fiercely independent, Martin Sexton launched his own label, KTR, in 2002. Since then he has infiltrated many musical worlds, performing at concerts ranging from pop (collaborating with John Mayer) to the Jam scene to classic rock (collaborating with Peter Frampton); from the Newport Folk Fest to Bonnaroo to New Orle
