A Christmas Carol...more or less

Presented by Mel O'Drama Theater at Dave and Busters

Don't miss A Christmas Carol….More or Less by Stefano LoVerso and Mary Irey, husband/wife and former SNL writers!

It's a Family Friendly Comedy Staring Francine Berk and Chad David Webb!

Sarah and Charlie, a married couple, run a small theatre that's presenting A Christmas Carol -- until Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Charlie is planning to split up with Sarah tonight, but he's snowed in. Sarah, furious, capitalizes on Charlie's remarkable memory, and blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to. He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, Charlie gets drawn back into his relationship with Sarah. They actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, informing it with dual levels of meaning.

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

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

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

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

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

Teachenor is on course to see the best year of his career, thus far.  A visionary at heart, he is sculpting his sound, band, and live show into something new and explosive... bridging the gap between throwback and innovation. The driving force behind Teachenor's focused image is his new management team at 36 Black Artist Management Group, and his record label, Rock Fiction Records.  This musical rendezvous of gentleman meets outlaw will take place in the Birthplace of Rock-N-Roll, Memphis, Tennessee, with the recording of his upcoming single, "Fallen Sons," set to be released in early 2015.  Jamie has been described by renowned Rolling Stone contributor & music editor, Larry Nager, as "The arrival of a strikingly original talent." Jamie is a Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter and producer who has had songs recorded by many mainstream Country Music artists, such as, Luke Bryan, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery Gentry, Blaine Larsen, Collin Raye, Trisha Yearwood, Craig Campbell, Joey + Rory, Kevin Denney, Trace Adkins, and Vince Gill. As an artist, Jamie has contributed to a number of albums, including vocals for Blake Shelton's Gold certified album, "The Dreamer," and in 2010, Jamie released the single, "Never Gonna Stand For This," as Teachenor Clark. Describing Teachenor's own piano-based version of Southern Indie Soul Rock, GreatIndieMusic.com states, "full of raw emotion and unrivaled conviction," "Teachenor has truly been given a genre-less gift."

"Dream, Dream, Dream” Scott & Helen Hoyt’s Acoustic Tribute to The Everly Brothers

Presented by Puckett's Boat House at Puckett's Boat House

Back in 1976, Scott founded the pop/rock band, Tangerine, with his sister, Helen, in Orange, Texas. Tangerine went on to become one of the most successful groups to come out of the southeast Texas area. The band broke up in late 1977 and re-formed in early 1982 to begin a long-running stint at the now-defunct Club Lafitte in Beaumont, Texas’ Holiday Inn. After the breakup of Tangerine in 1984, Helen married and retired from the music business to concentrate on being a Mom. Scott went out to join the popular rock group, 14K, and then pursued a solo career. He performed on concert stages with some of country’s biggest stars and was invited to perform at Governor George W. Bushs’ Inauguration in Austin.

Scott and Helen started doing a few acoustic shows around the Nashville area performing a tribute to the Everly Brothers that quickly caught the attention of music fans and Edan Everly (Don Everly’s son). Edan’s management has expressed interest in having Scott and Helen open for Edan and his group “The Everly Hillbillies” on their next tour. Being heavily influenced by the Everly Brothers and their music, Scott and Helen play all the Everly Brothers’ hits along with other hits by artists who were also influenced by them, including The Beatles, Peter & Gordon, The Bee Gees, and many others. It’s a tribute to the greatest duo of the rock and roll era and a musical trip back to a simpler time.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

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

Citizenfour

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

In January 2013, documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she (and reporter Glenn Greenwald) flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes.

An Intimate evening with Shawn Mullins and Opener Chuck Cannon

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Since we last heard from Shawn Mullins on 2008’s honeydew, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter and band leader has undergone a series of transformative experiences, leading to a second coming for the veteran artist. Evidence of Mullins’ newfound level of musical and lyrical ambition courses comes through with Light You Up (Vanguard Records, October 12). This captivating new song cycle will likely be viewed as a flat-out revelation even by Mullins’ most fervent fans.

His experiences included an indoctrination into the collaborative creative process by numerous bouts of intensive co-writing, in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via a key contribution to the Zac Brown Band’s “Toes,” marking his third #1 single, following 1999’s “Lullaby” and the 2006 Triple A/Americana chart-topper “Beautiful Wreck.” Further co-writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on the new album, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive writing of his distinguished career. All of this creative activity was topped off by the birth of Shawn’s first child, Murphy, in August of 2009.

These two crucial realizations are at the center of Light You Up. The new album reaches out, boldly and magnanimously, into present-day existence—and at times like these, like-minded individuals can find strength in numbers.

Pierce Avenue

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Tony and Jaime joined forces professionally in January 2013. In October 2013, they released their first single as a duo to iTunes, "Take It to the House." They've spent most of this year writing for their debut EP to be released to iTunes in October 2014. "We're old souls," says Tony, "So we wanted to create something that sounded like music we love and grew up with. We don't have a label or anyone telling us what we can and cannot record, so we just wanted to be real and be ourselves."

Along with producer Jimmy Dulin (he produced "Take It to the House" & "Shut Up & Love Me") and engineer Todd Tidwell, Pierce Avenue produced and created a project they are truly proud of!

The EP, recorded at Starstruck Studios, features 5 tracks all co-written by Pierce Avenue along with writers James Breedwell, Marcum Stewart, Jason Sever, Rachel Thibodeau, Michael Elsner, and Helene Cronin.

"We're married, so our songs reflect real life situations," states Jaime. "It's not just a party for us, we go through good times and bad times, so it's okay to have a song like, 'Shut Up & Love Me' that talks about a couple having a fight, but wanting to work it out. We truly believe there are people out there that want to still hear songs about real life, and we're going to be the group that's not afraid to put that out there! What you see, is what you get with us! You feel our love and passion for our songs when we're on stage."

All members sing. The players in the Beaker Street Blues Band are seasoned veterans having played many styles throughout their long careers. But, the love of blues is what has brought these guys together and sustained them through many years as a group.

Beaker Street is a real blues band, not a rock band playing some blues tunes. The audience is taken on a journey of blues styles from the 40’s up until todays contemporary blues artists like Bernard Alison, Kim Wilson and others. BB King, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Albert Collins, Albert King, Ray Charles, The Band, Cream, and Joe Cocker are just a few of the iconic blues artists whose tunes are represented on the groups diverse song list along with a few originals. From the vast selection of blues tunes available, Beaker Street has chosen a repertoire that connects with people whether they are familiar with the songs or not. Blues is all about feel, and Beaker Street crowds feel what the players feel. This band energizes the crowd from the very first note played, to the last.

An Acoustic Evening With Jason Isbell and Special Guest Amanda Shires

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Two nights! December 27 and 28.

Alabama native Jason Isbell is both a product of his Northern Alabama roots and an example of how musical influences can help an artist evolve and mature. Born in Greenhill, Alabama, Isbell is undeniably inspired by the soul-tinged rock, country, and blues produced in neighboring Muscle Shoals. His sound continues to evolve but is equal parts loud and thoughtful, Southern and worldly. As a lyricist, Jason is willing to tell the difficult stories, whether raw, introspective, messy, or poetic. As an artist, he reveals his own vulnerabilities – his successes and failures – that listeners might find kinship, or perspective. The Wall Street Journal writes, “A composer of splendidly crafted songs, he performs with an intensity that connects the listener to the deep and genuine emotions that inspire his work.”

His past albums include Sirens of the Ditch, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Here We Rest, and Live from Alabama. His most recent release, Southeastern, garnered significant critical acclaim. In 2014, Isbell earned three Americana Music Awards, including Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (for “Cover Me Up”), and Album of the Year, for Southeastern.

The Long Players performing VAN MORRISON : MOONDANCE

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

The Long Players performing VAN MORRISON : MOONDANCE

The Long Players are a group of Nashville-based musicians who have, since 2004, taken classic albums and performed them live in their original sequence. Recruiting guest artists from their exceptional musical community, the band has celebrated over 50 seminal albums over the last seven years and gained national notoriety with feature news stories by NPR Radio ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, The Associated Press and Reuters / Billboard Magazine.
 

Their faithful renditions of LP’s like Bob Dylan’s “Blonde On Blonde” (with sidemen from the original album, Al Kooper and Charlie McCoy sitting in) or The Rolling Stones “Sticky Fingers” (with Stones sax man Bobby Keys sitting in), have raised the bar of what “playing in a cover band” is all about. Their sporadic shows are treated by both fans and the band as a celebration of the music that shaped their lives.

The founding members of The Long Players include Bill Lloyd (from 80’s hit country-rockers Foster & Lloyd), Steve Allen (from LA power-pop icons 20/20), Steve Ebe (from Memphis rock band Human Radio), John Deaderick (sideman to Michael McDonald/Dixie Chicks/Patty Griffin/etc.) and Garry Tallent (Bruce Springsteen’s E. St. Band).

When Tallent moved from Nashville in 2007, The Long Players enlisted musician/record producer, Brad Jones (who has worked with Josh Rouse, Jill Sobule and many others) to take over bass duties.

The Long Players not only tap into Nashville’s amazing talent pool for their guest singers but also for guest players, when the “platter du jour” calls for horns, strings or other additional players.

At each of the band’s public shows, The Long Players have chosen to take a portion of the proceeds and donate it to charity. On more than a few occasions, the money has gone directly to musicians to supplement health care expenses when insurance wasn’t enough. At other times the money has been donated to organizations like Music Cares, The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Alive Hospice and others.

With an average of around five public shows a year, the crowds line up early whenever the band plays. As busy as the individual members of The Long Players are, they are committed to finding the time it takes to learn, rehearse and perform these classic albums for an audiences happy to hear their favorite records brought back to life.

Eric Heatherly

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

“The best mix of Sun Records meets the Grand Ole Opry that I’ve ever seen or heard,” proclaimed Hollywood actor/musician Billy Bob Thornton after attending Eric Heatherly’s sold-out performance at The House of Blues in Los Angeles. Thornton’s proclamation is spot-on. And it’s one of several signs that the essentials of Eric’s musical travels are multi-faceted, well-earned, and far beyond the typical.

At five years old, Eric fell in love…with a six-string that his dad rescued from a garbage bin while making deliveries in his truck. His first album, Swimming in Champagne, (Mercury Records) surfaced in April 2000. It met with widespread critical honors, became Billboard’s #44 Top Album of the year and yielded three Top 40 singles. One of those singles, “Flowers on the Wall,” walked away with the honor of the #3 Top Country Single of 2000 AND #1 video designation from both Great American Country (GAC) and Country Music Television (CMT). During the next few years Eric Heatherly recorded two more albums that remain something to be proud of:  Sometimes It’s Just Your Time, (Dreamworks) and The Lower East Side of Life, (Koch USA & Universal/Germany). When he's not touring or tecording, Eric finds telaxation by expressing his other artistic side as a painter. He also relishes his time with 10 yr. old daughter, Christiana, his dog Lucky and his local church.

Ricky Ray & The Ki+Mo+Sah+Bee Band

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

Alabama born Ricky Ray took up slide guitar at the age of three as he sat on his great grandmother's lap and watched her play slide guitar using a butter knife. And he hasn't looked back since! Primarily recognized as a guitar player's guitar player, no matter what the venue, when he plays everyone in the room sits up and takes notice! A player, producer, singer-songwriter, he works with some of the best, played for some of the best and has a versatile list of cuts unlike many other in Nashville! His song "A Good Day for the Blues," which was nominated for a W.C. Handy award for Ruth Brown’s rendition and "Darlene" shot to number one with T. Graham Brown. His personal credits include songs done by The Band, Lonnie Mack, Maria Muldaur, Lacy J. Dalton, and Bobbie Keyes (with Keith Richards in "Cheap Winos"). On the road he played with the Nashville band, "The Nerve", for ten years, followed by stints with Tom T. Hall, Dobie Gray, Lonnie Mack and Tony Joe White. Ricky Ray currently lives in Franklin, TN.

Rick Lonow settled in Nashville in the 80s, after some years building his credentials as a top-tier sideman on the West Coast. He wasted no time doing the same in Music City, finding a place on the first-call list as a drummer for recording sessions and live work with an elite roster of artists. He's heard on records by (or with) June Carter Cash (three Grammys there), Billy Joe Shaver, Loretta Lynn, Dierks Bentley, Ronnie Dunn, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello and many more. Lonow's live credits include shows and tours with the likes of Crystal Gayle, Dr. John, James Burton, The Bellamy Brothers, John Prine and a host of others. He's a regular in the studio stable of the legendary "Cowboy" Jack Clement,and he can also lay claim to a Gold Record as a songwriter; Rick co-wrote the Poco hit "Call It Love."

In 1999, Dave Pomeroy created and hosted "Nashville Unlimited", a radio series produced for Nashville Public Radio, featuring "live in the studio" performances and interviews with a diverse range of Nashville's finest singers, songwriters, and musicians. The series aired on Nashville Public Radio and other regional markets in 1999 and 2000. Starting in December 2000, his annual Nashville Unlimited Christmas Concert has become an annual event benefiting “Room In The Inn”, with an impressive guest list including John Prine, Maura O'Connell, Tim O'Brien, Jon Randall, and the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble. The recordings of the show have aired on local radio stations as "NU Christmas Specials". Earwave Records released a"Best of Nashville Unlimited Christmas Vol. 1 CD" in 2004. Over the past 14 years, Dave has raised over $50,000 for the Room In The Inn homeless program with his benefit concerts. Pomeroy's latest activity includes a busy studio schedule, live shows with the Sweethearts of the Rodeo, Jim Rooney, and Three Ring Circle, in addition to his solo gigs, and the continued expansion of Earwave Music and his home studio, The Groove Palace.

John Tomlin & Co.

Presented by Puckett's Boat House at Puckett's Boat House

A native Tennessean, John Tomlin grew up steeped in the Bluegrass tradition. Soaking in the sounds of his grandfather’s banjo and great uncle’s guitar and Lester Flatt-styled singing, John quickly found his place in this musical family, learning the guitar and, ultimately, the mandolin. Over the years, John has brewed his distinctive sound, rooted in the “tradition” of legends like Bill Monroe and Lester Flatt, infused with the “progressive” flavor influence of artists like John Duffey and Sam Bush, and seasoned with a bold shot of passion and energy. John has served up his signature blend of rich vocals and steaming hot mandolin licks on stages around the world‚ from “Music City” honky-tonks, to clubs and festivals throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, including the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Ireland & Co.

An Acoustic Evening With Jason Isbell and Special Guest Amanda Shires

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Two nights! December 27 and 28.

Alabama native Jason Isbell is both a product of his Northern Alabama roots and an example of how musical influences can help an artist evolve and mature. Born in Greenhill, Alabama, Isbell is undeniably inspired by the soul-tinged rock, country, and blues produced in neighboring Muscle Shoals. His sound continues to evolve but is equal parts loud and thoughtful, Southern and worldly. As a lyricist, Jason is willing to tell the difficult stories, whether raw, introspective, messy, or poetic. As an artist, he reveals his own vulnerabilities – his successes and failures – that listeners might find kinship, or perspective. The Wall Street Journal writes, “A composer of splendidly crafted songs, he performs with an intensity that connects the listener to the deep and genuine emotions that inspire his work.”

His past albums include Sirens of the Ditch, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Here We Rest, and Live from Alabama. His most recent release, Southeastern, garnered significant critical acclaim. In 2014, Isbell earned three Americana Music Awards, including Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (for “Cover Me Up”), and Album of the Year, for Southeastern.

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

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

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

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

Presented by Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary at Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary

Are you looking for something to do with the family during the holidays or an excuse to get out of the house by yourself? How does a nice afternoon hike in the winter woods followed by hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows sound? The forest may seem quiet during the dormant season, but hikers find it is teeming with life. Footprints reveal many mammals and birds are still awake and active, and the exposed hills no longer camouflage the homes of our active winter residents. After the hike, we will retreat back to the pavilion to warm ourselves by the fire, drink hot chocolate and roast marshmallows. It is a fun afternoon for nature lovers of all ages. Two and under are free. Come join us! Registration appreciated.

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.

Teachenor is on course to see the best year of his career, thus far.  A visionary at heart, he is sculpting his sound, band, and live show into something new and explosive... bridging the gap between throwback and innovation. The driving force behind Teachenor's focused image is his new management team at 36 Black Artist Management Group, and his record label, Rock Fiction Records.  This musical rendezvous of gentleman meets outlaw will take place in the Birthplace of Rock-N-Roll, Memphis, Tennessee, with the recording of his upcoming single, "Fallen Sons," set to be released in early 2015.  Jamie has been described by renowned Rolling Stone contributor & music editor, Larry Nager, as "The arrival of a strikingly original talent." Jamie is a Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter and producer who has had songs recorded by many mainstream Country Music artists, such as, Luke Bryan, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery Gentry, Blaine Larsen, Collin Raye, Trisha Yearwood, Craig Campbell, Joey + Rory, Kevin Denney, Trace Adkins, and Vince Gill. As an artist, Jamie has contributed to a number of albums, including vocals for Blake Shelton's Gold certified album, "The Dreamer," and in 2010, Jamie released the single, "Never Gonna Stand For This," as Teachenor Clark.

Skeeter Davis Birthday Tribute

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

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

Penny Opera

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

Join us tonight for live music with Penny Opera!

Brandie Spradley is a Mississippi Girl...born and raised, but loves it here in Nashville. She can't remember a time when she didn't love music or the way it made her feel. Brandie loves all music...opera, classical, rock, jazz, country, heavy metal...you name it! She explains, “I have been very blessed to be able to have had the experiences I’ve had because of music…whether it was opening for Earth, Wind & Fire, playing for the World Series, or going into labor on stage in front of a few thousand people in the middle of performing Rocky Top. That definitely made for an interesting night!” Brandie has sung in bands since she was 16, and now continues to express herself through music, whether she is singing in the recording studio for songwriters, or songwriting herself.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer, bassist, engineer, producer, Chip Martin wears many hats well. He formed his first band at the age of 12 and has been on stage ever since playing in rock and country-rock groups from Maine to Miami.

The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country

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

The Bakersfield Sound story begins during the Great Depression, when Bakersfield's cotton farms and oil fields attracted a mass migration of Dust Bowl refugees from Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas. Born in Texas in 1929, Buck Owens moved with his sharecropping parents to Arizona before heading to Bakersfield in 1951. Merle Haggard's family, driven to the area from their east-Oklahoma farm, lived in an old converted railroad boxcar when Haggard was born, in a Bakersfield hospital, on April 6, 1937.

The exhibit will explore Bakersfield's club scene where, in the 1940s and 1950s, the city's plethora of dance halls and honky-tonks provided respite for wall-to-wall, rambunctious workers eager for the boogiefied honky-tonk of the Maddox Brothers & Rose or the eclectic swing sound of Bob Wills. Also on the bandstands were enormously influential musicians Wynn Stewart and Tommy Collins, whose classic honky-tonk songs Owens and Haggard would later record, and for whom they worked as sidemen before launching solo careers.

The exhibit also spotlights Bill Woods, widely regarded as "The Father of the Bakersfield Sound," and other musical architects, including "Cousin" Herb Henson, Ferlin Husky, Billy Mize, Fuzzy Owen, Bonnie Owens, Jelly Sanders, Jean Shepard, Red Simpson and Lewis Talley.

One of Bakersfield Sound's recurring themes is the connections between all of the artists making music during this fertile period. This is epitomized by the careers of Bakersfield's greatest stars, Owens and Haggard. As they came to prominence in the 1960s, their careers and personal lives were interwined not only with each other but with virtually all of the other major figures of the Bakersfield scene. These two superstars remained faithful to the classic honky-tonk style and, at the same time, gave country music a harder edge in keeping with the drinking, loud talking, fist-fighting and romancing that characterized Bakersfield's nightclub culture. Owens and his top-notch band, the Buckaroos, first popularized Bakersfield's amped-up hybrid of honky-tonk, rockabilly and western swing with 1960s chart-toppers like "Act Naturally," "Love's Gonna Live Here," "Together Again" and "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail" and Haggard and his equally stellar band, the Strangers, soon followed with the unforgettable gems "Sing Me Back Home," "Mama Tried," "Okie from Muskogee" and "The Fightin' Side of Me." These Bohemian originals scored nearly 60 #l hits between them and created a body of work that continues to influence artists today.

The exhibit will also focus on the Bakersfield music businesses that evolved in the 1960s, including publishing houses, recording studios, booking and management agencies, radio stations and performance venues, and particularly on Buck Owens Enterprises, the music empire owned and operated by the savvy Owens. It will also explore the enduring impact of the Bakersfield Sound on subsequent generations of musicians, singers and songwriters, from country-rock pioneers the Flying Burrito Brothers to Dwight Yoakam and Brad Paisley, and many others.

Among other narrative elements, visitors will learn about the importance of Capitol Records producer Ken Nelson, who recorded numerous Bakersfield classics, including many of Owens' and Haggard's hits, and who has been elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame; and the role of the Buckaroos and the Strangers in developing the Bakersfield Sound, with emphasis on key sidemen such as steel guitar innovator Ralph Mooney, Telecaster ace Roy Nichols and lead guitarist and harmony vocalist Don Rich. The Bakersfield-based Mosrite company, who manufactured instruments and issued recordings, also will be highlighted.

The Bakersfield Sound story will include hundreds of archival photos, audio and video clips, and a Fort Knox of rare, historic and visually stunning artifacts including:

Weaving the expansive story together via video screens throughout the gallery is Yoakam, who created a one-of-a-kind oral history - with special guests Merle Haggard and Chris Hillman - especially for this exhibit; the interview was taped at Hollywood's Capitol Records Tower, where many Bakersfield Sound hits were made.

New Years Eve with St. Paul & the Broken Bones

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Paul Janeway: lead vox

Jesse Phillips: bass

Browan Lollar: guitars, vox

Allen Branstetter: trumpet

Andrew Lee: drums, percussion

Ben Griner: trombone, tuba

Al Gamble: keys

Grit, elemental rhythm, tight-as-a-drumhead playing, and a profound depth of feeling:
these are the promises of a great soul band. And St. Paul & The Broken Bones deliver
on those promises.

Half The City is the compelling full-length Single Lock/Thirty Tigers debut of the
Birmingham, Alabama-based sextet, who have already created a maelstrom of interest
with their roof-raising live shows and self-released four-song 2012 EP. Produced by Ben
Tanner of Alabama Shakes, and recorded and mixed in the storied R&B mecca of
Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the album harkens back to the region's classic soul roots while
extending the form with electrifying potency.

Front man Paul Janeway's handle "St. Paul" is a wry allusion to the vocalist's grounding
in the church. Like many a legendary soul singer, Janeway, a native of the small town of
Chelsea, Alabama, was raised on the gospel side, in a non-denominational, Pentecostalleaning
local church. Virtually no non-religious music could be heard in his devout
household. Janeway says, "The only secular music that I heard at all was a '70s group
called the Stylistics, and Sam Cooke. That was about it. The rest of it was all gospel
music. When I was about 10 years old, I was groomed to be a minister. My goal in life
until I was about 18 years old was to be a preacher."

He adds, "My pastor was the reason that I learned to play guitar. They would let me play
guitar and sing in church. What was weird was that he would never let me sing lead – I'd
sing background vocals. I always thought, 'Well, maybe I'm just a good background
vocalist.' So I never thought I could really, really sing, at all. I never thought it would be a
living, ever."

Though his time in the church exposed Janeway to key influences in gospel music – the
Mighty Clouds of Joy, Alex Bradford, Clay Evans – he began moving away from his
youthful path in his late teens. He began attending open mic nights in Birmingham's
clubs and diversified his listening, excited by some decidedly left-of-center talents. "Tom
Waits and Nick Cave were the really big attractions," he says. "They have that passion.
They've built this aura. They're showmen to the teeth. And that's what got me – it's like
going to church, in a weird way. At about the same time, I began listening to the great
soul singers like Otis Redding, James Carr, and O.V. Wright. I was trying to find
something that made my earbuds tingle."

Seeking his musical comfort zone, Janeway had an incongruous stint in a band that
played Led Zeppelin covers, but, he confesses today, "That's not what I do." However,
his early work in the rock vein brought him together with bassist Jesse Phillips. The pair
became close friends and were soon writing together; "Sugar Dyed," "Broken Bones and
Pocket Change," and "That Glow," all heard on Half The City, were among the first fruits
of their collaboration.

The other members of the Broken Bones are all drawn from Alabama's deep talent pool.
Guitarist Browan Lollar, from the Muscle Shoals area about 100 miles north of
Birmingham, previously played with Jason Isbell's 400 Unit. "We never thought Browan
would ever be interested in this band – he was too big-time for us," says Janeway.

Moon Taxi

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

For the members of Moon Taxi, their third album, Mountains Beaches Cities, represents the idea of exploration – searching both the world and themselves for new experiences. The Nashville rock group, who had honed in on a notably compelling aesthetic with their previous album Cabaret, focused on extending the sonic landscape they’d created in earlier recordings, but this time around they amp up the speed and turn up the volume – creating an overall bigger sound.

The sound of Moon Taxi pulls from the many different facets and interests of its members. Trevor, who got his start in music playing trumpet in school, is driven by his love for reading, cooking and yoga; while Tyler, who spent his younger years jamming on a drum kit with friends, is driven by an immense appreciation and knowledge of pop culture. Spencer, who used to record himself in his parents garage, has transformed his knowledge of film into producing videos for Moon Taxi’s music. Wes, meanwhile, developed his musical process from classical composers like Mozart and spends his time on tour searching for golf courses while Tommy spends his free time going to concerts and carefully following Nashville’s local music scene. “I think the exploration aspect of the album came from trying to understand and explore ourselves,” Tommy says. “Personally and musically. As we get older we tend to know ourselves better, but there is always more to understand. You try new things, but continue some of the good habits you’ve learned. As we explored our music, we learned more about ourselves and matured as a band. I think it’s a concept that won’t stop at this record, but will carry on to our live shows and other records down the road.”

Old Crow Medicine Show

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

On September 17, 2013 Old Crow Medicine Show received the great honor of being inducted as the newest members of the historic Grand Ole Opry. Other highlights from the year included winning the Grammy Award for "Best Long Form Music Video" for the film Big Easy Express, and having their classic single, "Wagon Wheel", receive the RIAA's Platinum certification for selling over 1,000,000 copies.

The band got its start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows.

It's been nearly fifteen years since these humble beginnings, and the band has gone on to tour the world, sell over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and play renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Newport Folk Festival.

In 2011 Old Crow found themselves embarking on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this musical excursion across America's vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy directed documentary, Big Easy Express.

Old Crow Medicine Show now have five studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records - O.C.M.S. and Big Iron World produced by David Rawlings, and Tennessee Pusher produced by Don Was. In 2012 Old Crow released Carry Me Back, on which they continued to craft classic American roots music while pushing themselves in new directions. The band's newest album, Remedy, released by ATO Records and produced by Ted Hutt represents a new stretch of road in the timeless journey of a rambling string band.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

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

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

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

Seed Space: Greg Pond's The Place You Will Wait for the Rest of Your Life

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space

"The Place You Will Wait for the Rest of Your Life" is an exhibition that combines Greg Pond's previous work with a documentary project he has undertaken over the last 9 months. Since January 2014, Pond has been working with photographer Amy Johnson on an ongoing documentary project about the community of Patten Towers, a Section 8 housing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The project follows several residents, developing unique works in collaboration with each person. One of the residents is man named Crazy Horse, who possesses a remarkable creative brilliance. This exhibition involves Pond's sculpture sound and video work, Crazy Horse's writing and collages,  and photography made in collaboration Amy Johnson. Pond has made sculptures, video, and sound that extrapolate upon his views of working on the documentary that meld with his own individual heuristic practice. The collection of works circulates around notions of how each of us psychologically locate ourselves within our surroundings and the resultant desires that develop from this sense of place. 

Greg Pond is a professor at the University of the South and a founding member of Fugitive Projects in Nashville. Pond also works as an independent writer, curator, and lecturer. Some of his recent projects have been hosted by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture, the
Jamaican Film Academy, the Frist and Cheekwood Museums in Nashville, The Elizabeth Foundation of New York, and the Hunter Museum. His work is represented by the Zeitgeist Gallery in Nashville.

The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

The Franklin Theatre will ring-out the old year and “Swing-In” the new with a distinctive evening and rare middle Tennessee appearance by the one and only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. The theatre opened its doors to the public in 1937 on Franklin’s historic Main Street. To honor the era that first welcomed the theatre, the evening will promise 1930s swank with a 21st century flair featuring two performances by this legendary dance band.

No group in Big Band history can get a crowd swinging like the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra! Known as the “Sentimental Gentleman of Swing," Tommy Dorsey was a master at creating superb dancing and listening arrangements. Tommy’s work included collaborations with the likes of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl and Sy Oliver, and showcased singers who could project them brilliantly; most notably the leader of the Rat Pack himself, Frank Sinatra. The music world lost Tommy at an early age, but his legacy of great music has transcended time. The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra repertoire continues to entertain audiences of all ages throughout the world.

4D NYE - Time Travel Into the New Year w/ Richie, Penicillin Baby & more!

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

With 15+ acts on 2 stages and mind-blowing special FX bringing The Past and The Future to life, 4D NYE is the most Trans-Dimensional New Year’s Eve party in history! We’ve installed a fresh set of flux capacitors in Mercy Lounge & The High Watt and every hour of the night will take us to a landmark era in humanity’s time on the planet...

From prehistoric caves, dug with the bones of dinosaurs, we’ll drink until the Dawn of Civilization and party with the Pharaohs. In Ancient Greece & Rome, our ancestors created both the Highest of Arts and the Lowest of Debaucheries, through a revolution of mind later mirrored in the psychedelic ‘60s & ‘70s of America. To those who long for The Singularity to bring a Chrome Utopia, you need wait no longer - The Future Is Now! And, heaven forbid, if The Big One hits, we’ll meet you Beyond the Thunderdome…

MY SO-CALLED BAND: Champagne Supernova

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

My So-Called Band is your favorite flannel shirt + ripped denim + Doc Martens ensemble that somehow survived high school & your ex's repeated attempts at thievery. It never got dumped at Goodwill & still fits better than anything you’ve worn since. Or maybe tube tops and jelly flops were more your thing... 

My So-Called Band parties begin with a favorite 90’s pastime: watching a little TV with a few (hundred, maybe thousand) F•R•I•E•N•D•S. A 10-minute video collage of pre-millenium pop culture (TV, movies, commercials, etc.) reminds you of a time when you knew all of the words to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” because, trust us, you still do. For the next two-and-a-half hours, This Is How We Do It: 

Hip-hop boldly reinvented itself - nothing will ever top Biggie, Tupac or the magical combo of Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog. En Vogue, R. Kelly & Aaliyah took mainstream R&B far beyond anything we’d heard before. From Ace of Base to Britney and Mariah, the 90’s wrote the pop perfection blueprint that is still being used today. These were the years of alternative rock radio’s time in the sun - Green Day, The Cranberries & Third Eye Blind ruled the airwaves, while Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails & Red Hot Chili Peppers raged against the machine.

Can you tell we love this music? We do. We’re not a “cover band.” An all-star roster of Nashville-based studio & touring professionals, we’re dedicated to performing these songs exactly the way they sound on your mix CDs. You should think of My So-Called Band as “The Dream Team.”

Our Starting Five play/have played for such acts as Ben Folds, The Pink Spiders, Tristen, The Privates, Lifeboy, De Novo Dahl, Feeble Weiner, Hotpipes & many, many others, as well as working with producers Ric Ocasek, Jerry Harrison, Roger Moutenot, Dave Fridmann, Matt Mahaffey, etc. 

Rotating in and out of the game, previous and current special guest performers have worked with Wanda Jackson, Deer Tick, The Nobility, Johnny Corndawg (Johnny Fritz), Caitlin Rose, Wild Cub, etc.

A favorite of Puckett’s, we’re thrilled to have Raven Cliff with us tonight to help us say goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015!

Raven Cliff has taken the country music scene by storm since their introduction in 2012. The group’s versatile background and individual influences create a musical experience unlike anything heard before. Combined elements of southern rock, traditional country, bluegrass, and just pure love of all genres of music make for a unique experience. Raven Cliff’s authentic sound cannot be labeled. From the contemporary country/rock style of “California Here She Comes” to the gut wrenching and heartfelt “Love the Sinner”, Raven Cliff takes the listener on a musical journey that is sure to please. 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.

The Pat McGee Band

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Pat has had one heck of a 2014. He started off the year with roaring success -- a 200% funded Kickstarter campaign to record songs that he wrote while being inspired by the early1970s singer-songwriter movement. Then in May, his Down The Hatch OBX festival was a massive success hosting over 250 hardcore music fans and many of the nations finest artists (Luke Brindley, Tony Lucca, Michael Tolcher, Keaton Simons and more!).

In June he headed to LA to record his 10th album with his dream band, the same players who shaped a majority of the music being recorded in Southern California in the 70's. Pat was joined in a legendary Hollywood studio for one week with Russ Kunkel on drums, Leland Sklar on bass, Waddy Wachtel, Jeff Pevar & Danny Kortchmar on guitars as well as many special guests. With this amazing team, Pat has created his best work to date. Look for a release towards the end of the year as well as a full-fledged documentary about the entire process.

The Exotics

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Mention The Exotics to many Franklin, Nashville and Middle Tennessee natives who were coming of age in the '60s and early '70s and they immediately recall good times at high school dances, outdoor driveway "combos" at a friend's house, summer pool parties at Willow Plunge and college fraternity and sorority events.

The original Exotics were friends from Franklin and Columbia Tennessee, three of whom attended Battle Ground Academy. When paired with the Spidels, four Nashville soul singers who performed sets backed by the Exotics, it became a not-to-miss happening, The Exotics were known throughout the Southeast and, in addition to dances, performed half time shows in venues from Neyland Stadium, Vanderbilt Stadium and even in the old Sugar Bowl Stadium in New Orleans.

Three of the original four Exotics are still together and are beginning to play again following the death of Billy Adair who started the band 50 years ago. The fun and joy of the music from this era is hard to ignore so the band is moving forward to continue its legacy. Prioir to Billy's death, he, along with Jeff Cook, Glenn Crowell, and Loy Hardcastle played together on a dozen gigs a year, along with Robert Early and Steve Smartt, who joined The Exotics horn section in the late '60s. Recent gigs have found them at wedding receptions, school reunions, birthday parties, anniversaries, and street festivals. Among the more popular appearances have been club dates at the Mercy Lounge on a double bill with their friends in another Nashville '60s band, The Charades. Wherever The Exotics play it's a time to "party with everybody you ever knew" and the dance floor is always crowded

Gedeon Luke & The People

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Hailing from the streets of Memphis, soul music flows through Gedeon Luke’s veins in rainbow colored hues. Weaned on the gospel infused sounds of Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green and inspired by the rock ‘n roll passion of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Gedeon and his band The People are here to crash through the boundaries of music and society, to bring Love, Peace and Soul to the world.

Fighting through childhood poverty, rejecting the gang violence and drug abuse that surrounded him, Gedeon looked to music, family and faith as his beacon. Refusing to be hardened by the mean streets, Gedeon brings pure joy and passion to his music and his life.

His debut record, “Live Free and Love” was cut old school style, throwing his band The People and special guests in a room and laying it down live. It follows no trend. It’s Love, Peace and Soul. It’s Gedeon Luke.

Kyndon Oakes

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

For a guy who didn’t start playing guitar until age 18, Kyndon Oakes looks and sounds like an artist and songwriter who’s been singing and playing his entire life.

That’s a rare gift, one that shows the natural ability, incredible work ethic, and competitive nature of this former 3-sport star from Independence, Kansas who also just happens to look like a movie star.

In a country radio format with an overwhelmingly female audience, that’s always a good thing. So is Kyndon’s ability to write and sing radio-friendly country songs such as the new rocking country anthem “Drive” or the romantic “Boardwalk.”

Robert Scobey | Untitled (OMG Mountains!) | Channel To Channel

Presented by Channel To Channel at Channel To Channel

Channel to Channel, an up and coming gallery located in an old hosiery warehouse in the Wedgewood-Houston area of Nashville, is pleased to present "Untitled (OMG Mountains!)", a selection of abstract paintings by Nashville-native, Robert Scobey. The work on display spans several years. In all of the work, Scobey has employed a process of layering abstractions in order to arrive at imagined landscapes and architectures. This will be the first exhibition of his work since recently relocating back to Nashville.

Scobey is an interdisciplinary artist who grew up in Nashville, TN. He earned a BA from Lipscomb University and an MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. While living in Philadelphia for seven years, Scobey worked as an assistant to Argentinian artist Osvaldo Romberg and worked as an art handler. His work has been exhibited at juried shows throughout the U.S. and at festivals and gallery exhibits in France and the UK. More info at http://robertscobey.com.

Cracker

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Cracker Cofounders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe ("Low," "Euro-Trash Girl,” "Get Off This" and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base - that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry - continues to grow each year. At the end of 2014,  Cracker released its tenth studio effort, entitled Berkeley To Bakersfield, a double-album that finds this uniquely American band traversing two different sides of the California landscape – the northern Bay area and further down-state in Bakersfield.

As Lowery explains, “On the Berkeley disc the band is the original Cracker lineup - Davey Faragher, Michael Urbano, Johnny and myself. This is the first time this lineup has recorded together in almost 20 years. We began recording this album at East Bay Recorders in Berkeley, CA. For this reason we chose to stylistically focus this disc on the music we most associate with the East Bay: Punk and Garage with some funky undertones. To further match our sense of place we often took an overtly political tone in the lyrics.”

WAG's January Art Crawl Show ft. paintings by Marlos E'van and Aaron Harper

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

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents paintings by juniors Marlos E’van and Aaron Harper at its downtown gallery WAG during the January 3 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

Marlos E’van, studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Art, has titled his show Funkhaus,“an element of style, grace, violence, disorder and anything bordered. I intend to capture the grace of existence and present it in its elemental nature.” A native of Mississippi, he moved to Nashville in 2012 to begin his studies at Watkins, and his work has been shown in several shows in the downtown arts district and through public installations. In 2014 he co-founded the Wonderland Museum, where public spaces become art events. E’van is also a composer, and was a co-organizer of the July 2013 Music Moves Festival, Nashville's first large-scale mobile music festival hosted on public transportation.

Fine Art major Aaron Harper offers Space Between Things, featuring works derived from the experience of walking and driving around the city of Nashville during the night. Months of on-and-off exploration inspired the creation of numerous oil paintings that function as thoughts concerning the effects that darkness can have on the psyche. The work of artists such as Merlin James, Mary Heilmann and Forrest Bess, the writings of Plato, Nietzsche and Bataille, the music of Sun Ra, Albert Ayler and Don Cherry, as well as a background in the Pentecostal Church, are prominent influences in his work. A member of the Watkins-led Co. H collective, Harper was part of their highly praised Mystic Truths show (summer 2014), and he has also exhibited in group shows at the Packing Plant, Track 13, Fort Houston, Chestnut Gallery and Cummins Station.

WAG – an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery – is located in suite 77 upstairs in the historic Arcade and is open the first Saturday evening of the month during each Art Crawl (from 6:00pm-9:00pm), and by appointment.

WAG joins approximately 20 participating Art Crawl galleries along Fifth Avenue of the Arts and upstairs in the Historic Arcade. Admission is free, and the Nashville Downtown Partnership provides two free shuttles traveling among the venues.

George Wallace

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 By the age of six George Wallace wanted to be a comedian, but knew he first needed an education. He attended college at the University of Akron, Ohio. Upon graduating with degrees in transportation and marketing, George entered the advertising work force. Still, George’s dream of being a comedian had a strong hold on him. Within a week of leaving the advertising field, he began to perform stand up comedy and was offered a job writing for The Red Foxx Show.
George won an American Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Comedian” after being continually nominated four years in a row. George’s television credits include HBO One Night Stand, Hallmark’s movie Santa Jr. (2002), Seinfeld, The Parkers, Moesha, The Tonight Show, Oprah, Hollywood Squares, Late Show with David Letterman, Rosie O’Donnell, Live with Regis, Politically Incorrect, Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment, Extra and a guest-host on Later on NBC. As well as In the Heat of Night, Tall Hopes, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Arliss. George also appeared in numerous films including Comedian, The Wash, Three Strikes, Little Nicky, A Rage in Harlem, Punchline, Postcards from the Edge, Batmam Forever, and Ladykillers.
Las Vegas loves their resident comedic headliner, but even more so, George loves Las Vegas in return. In 2004, George appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas for a 30 day run. “Sin City” showed its admiration by extending George’s contract indefinitely.
George’s most recognized material is his “Yo Mama” and “I Be Thinkin” jokes, which encourage audience participation. Every show George selects a few people out of the crowd to go one on one in comical banter. George shows his gratitude to his audience by signing autographs and taking photos after every show.

Helen Pashgian: Columns

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

Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery

Helen Pashgian explores the nature of perception by using natural and artificial light to illuminate reflective, translucent or transparent industrial materials such as fiberglass, polyester resin, plastic, glass and other substances.  A pioneer of the Light and Space Movement of the 1960s, Pashgian and others within this small group of Southern California artists sought to make the spectators’ sensory experience the focus of their work. This exhibition presents a selection of her paired columns, luminous seven foot structures that refract light in surprising ways due to their internal copper rods.

Helen Pashgian: Columns is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Exhibit dates are September 26, 2014–January 4, 2015

Kandinsky: A Retrospective

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

Considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Vassily Kandinsky is often credited with creating the first purely non-objective painting. Featuring over 80 paintings, watercolors, drawings and a reconstituted mural, Vassily Kandinsky celebrates some of the most significant aspects of the artist’s oeuvre. Beginning with his early paintings influenced by symbolists such as Edvard Munch, Russian folk painting and Fauvism, the exhibition also includes works the artist created while part of the Munich-based group, der Blaue Reiter, which greatly influenced Kandinsky’s stylistic shift toward pure abstraction.  The exhibition also surveys Kandinsky’s work during his time in Russia through World War I and after the October Revolution, the time he spent at the Bauhaus in Germany, and concludes with late works he created in Paris.

Drawing extensively from the collection of Kandinsky’s works from Paris’s Centre Pompidou, which were donated by Kandinsky’s widow, the exhibition will also feature an additional selection of works by other der Blaue Reiter artists from the Milwaukee Art Museum, providing a context through which viewers can appreciate Kandinsky’s significance.

Kandinsky: A Retrospective is organized by the Centre Pompidou—Paris and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Helen Pashgian: Light Invisible

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

Helen Pashgian explores the nature of perception by using natural and artificial light to illuminate reflective, translucent or transparent industrial materials such as fiberglass, polyester resin, plastic, glass and other substances.  A pioneer of the Light and Space Movement of the 1960s, Pashgian and others within this small group of Southern California artists sought to make the spectators’ sensory experience the focus of their work. This exhibition presents a selection of her paired columns, luminous seven foot structures that refract light in surprising ways due to their internal copper rods.

Helen Pashgian: Light Invisible is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Edmondson and Friends: Breaking the Mold

Presented by Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

Almost fifteen years after organizing a major the William Edmondson traveling exhibition, Cheekwood is honoring this African-American artist from Nashville with a new exhibition. ht the Edmondson sculptures from its permanent collection supplemented by selected loans from other collections. This will be the first survey exhibition of Edmondson’s work since Cheekwood Edmondson is a luminary in the story of 20th century American art and has served as a source of inspiration for many younger artists, even during his lifetime. This exhibition presents select works by Edmondson in the company of sculptors and painters who have followed in his footsteps.

Edmondson was a visionary who inspired numerous artists over the years. He was a self-taught sculptor who never left Nashville but who made a lasting impression in the history of American art. Edmondson, like his kindred spirits Thornton Dial and Lonnie Holley, pushed the idea of self-taught to another level with a bold and sophisticated approach to making art from base material. William Edmondson and Friends: Breaking the Mold seeks to create a dialogue between Edmondson and a range of artists, many of them from Tennessee, who have broken the mold of their medium. Besides Dial and Holley, the preliminary list of Edmondson “friends” includes Red Grooms, Olen Bryant, Puryear Mims, Alan Lequire, Tim Lewis, and Greg Ridley. Some of them met the artist during his lifetime, others only learned about his work after he had passed away. The artists that are included in this exhibition have channeled on different levels whether it is through the use of medium (stone carving), the carving technique, the vision (divine inspiration), or perhaps a similar sense of humor. The exhibition invites visitors to meet a diverse community of artists who have carried forward Edmondson’s love for stone carving and interpreted it in often separate and distinct ways.

Patrick Dougherty: Stickworth Photographs

Presented by Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

William Edmondson and Friends: Breaking the Mold will showcase the sculptures of celebrated stone carver and Nashville native William Edmondson (1874-1951) along with more than twenty works by sculptors and painters who have been influenced by Edmondson’s style, inspiration and technique.

As the first African-American artist to receive a solo exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art (1937), Edmondson claims a national place in the history of American Art among the most important self-taught artists of the past century. William Edmondson and Friends is a tribute to his incredible legacy in Nashville and beyond. Not only is Edmondson honored with street signs, parks, civic buildings and historical markers around the city, his unlikely career as a sculptor and influence on future artists has carried his name far outside Nashville’s city limits. Sculptors including Sylvia Hyman, Red Grooms, Olen Bryant, Puryear Mims, Alan Lequire, Greg Ridley, Tim Lewis, and Meyer Wolfe will be represented in this exhibition, displayed alongside some of Edmondson’s best known work.

Steelism Plus Los Colognes

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

Steelism:

It’s a short drive from Nashville, TN, to Muscle Shoals, AL: 125 miles, or about two hours if your foot’s on the leaden side, and you’ve left one musical Mecca for another. Thanks to Nashville instrumental duo Steelism, though, that gap is bridged in the time it takes to listen to a track. Comprised of guitarist Jeremy Fetzer, pedal steel player Spencer Cullum and backed by some of Nashville’s finest young musicians, Steelism blends an eclectic array of vintage and modern influences to create instrumental music that truly sounds like nothing else.

Though Steelism is new to the music scene, Cullum and Fetzer are not, having backed artists like Wanda Jackson, Johnny Fritz, Rayland Baxter and Andrew Combs. The two met while touring the U.K. with Nashville songstress Caitlin Rose, quickly bonding over their shared love for classic movie soundtrack composers like Ennio Morricone and ‘60s instrumental acts like Booker T. and the M.G.s, The Ventures and Pete Drake. Writing together between sound checks, the duo realized it was time for the sidemen to become frontmen, and Steelism was born.

The duo’s full-length debut 615 to FAME releases via Single Lock Records (founded by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, John Paul White of The Civil Wars and Will Trapp), with marketing and distribution from Thirty Tigers, on September 16, 2014. Half recorded at Muscle Shoals’ historic FAME Studios, where Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding all tracked hits, 615 to FAME was produced by Fetzer and Cullum with co-production from Ben Tanner, and contributions from longtime Nashville-based collaborators Jon Radford (drums) and Michael Rinne (bass). Featuring 10 original instrumentals and one cover, 615 to FAME announces Steelism as one of Nashville’s most exciting new acts.

 

Los Colognes:

Aaron Mortenson and Jay Rutherford set out to make their debut Los Colognes album in the mold of the great JJ Cale records of the ‘70s. Working Together is parched desert country blues at its best—full of relationships gone south, one-liners that make you think twice, and slow-burning boogie woogie. After a name change and three years tightening their sound and soaking up the remaining strains of classic country music in Nashville, Los Colognes’ Working Together reflects the simple but straight-on lyricism of John Prine, the unhurried grooves of Cale, with a touch Mark Knopfler’s mid-‘80s Dire Straits polish. “Just stay on the train until you feel like you got enough,” explains Mort on the band’s recording studio philosophy. The duo would bring in different players on each session, then take the tapes home to work on them some more, blending in a “soupy, random quality,” says Jay. Though Working Together deals with the unraveling of one particular relationship, Los Colognes have distilled things here to their universal core. After a decades-long musical partnership—writing 500 shitty songs together, Mort jokes, and fully finding their sound—this is the good stuff.

50th Anniversary Father Ryan vs. Pearl Basketball Game

Presented by Father Ryan High School at Nashville Municipal Auditorium

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary Father Ryan vs. Pearl Basketball Game. The first of its kind, athletes from an integrated and an all-black high school shared the court. Celebration Events Include:

January 5, 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of athletic competitions between teams of integrated and all black schools in Nashville. An estimated 8,300 fans packed the Municipal Auditorium on January 4, 1965 to witness the first sporting event of its kind in Nashville, and quite possibly all of the South. Father Ryan, a Catholic high school and one that integrated 10 years earlier, met toe to toe with the state’s best team Pearl, an all-black public high school. The tip off was more than the start of the shot clock but one that started a path of racial unity in Nashville and in the South. The Father Ryan vs. Pearl basketball game was a historic display of model sportsmanship, unlike any other, and set forth a standard for scholastic athletics we participate in today.

“The Game That Changed the South" Celebratory Luncheon sponsored by McDonald’s

Presented by Father Ryan High School at Wildhorse Saloon

Come celebrate with Father Ryan and Pearl High School as they look back on 50 years of sports equality and "The Game that Changed the South:" the 1965 game between the two schools that was the first athletic event in the South between an integrated team and an all African-American team. Players from both of the 1965 teams will be recognized, and Perry Wallace, Jesse Porter and Andrew Maraniss will headline the panel.

Panelists for the luncheon include:
Perry Wallace, Pearl Class of 1966 and center on the 1965 team
Andrew Maraniss, author of “Strong Inside: The Story of Perry Wallace.”
Jesse Porter, Father Ryan Class of 1964 and, with Willie Brown, the first African-American to integrate sports in the South.
Lyn Dempsey, Father Ryan Class of 1965, who made the winning shot.

The Game—50 Years Ago:
On January 4, 1965, Willie Brown—the man who integrated athletics in the South in the fall of 1963, led his Father Ryan team to a victory in the historic game against Pearl High’s outstanding team, led by Perry Wallace and Ted ‘Hound’ McClain, in front of 8,300 at Municipal Auditorium, the first game in the South between an African-American school and an integrated school. Father Ryan won 52-51 on a shot by Lyn Dempsey at the buzzer.

It was a match-up of two basketball teams, two schools, two communities...and it produced an outcome that is still fresh in many people’s minds.

"The game that changed the South:"

Father Ryan High School’s basketball teams will face Pearl-Cohn High School at the Municipal Auditorium on January 5, 2015, commemorating the first match between Father Ryan and Pearl High School in 1965. Referred to as “the game that changed the South,” the contest between the two schools in 1965 was the first-ever sporting event in the South between an integrated team and an all African-American team.

The game-day events will include:
• The Nashville Sports Council and Comcast Sports Speaker Series “The Game That Changed the South Celebratory Luncheon” sponsored by McDonald’s, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Wildhorse Saloon;

The luncheon will feature a panel of guests including Perry Wallace, Pearl Class of 1966 and center on the 1965 team; Andrew Maraniss, author of “Strong Inside: The Story of Perry Wallace”; Jesse Porter, Father Ryan Class of 1964, who in 1963 with Willie Brown became the first African-Americans to integrate sports in the South; and Lyn Dempsey, Father Ryan Class of 1965, who made the winning shot in the game.

Members of both 1965 teams will be part of the activities, including players, coaches, and staff. They will be introduced at the luncheon and saluted before the boys game.

The 1965 game attracted more than 8,700 fans to the Auditorium—and some reports claim that 10,000 people were actually in attendance—in a match between two of the best teams in the state. It was the largest crowd ever to see a regular season game. Dempsey’s basket went through the hoop as the horn sounded, earning Father Ryan a 52-51 victory in a game that lived up to its billing. Wallace, Walter Fisher and Ted McClain led the Pearl team while Father Ryan was paced by Brown, Champ Hounihan and Pat Sanders.

Luke Wade

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Growing up on Hurt Street in a sultry little Texas town might seem an auspicious beginning for a soul singer. But for Dublin’s Luke Wade, it’s hard to imagine that it would be anything short of destiny.

Born of extraordinary artists and self-described ‘Hippies’, Luke is the product of a home that truly cultivated creativity. The youngest of four children, his music is the modern manifestation of the introspective and enlightened notions instilled by his parents. Bob and Wanda spawned a self- awareness that makes Luke’s music inherently reflective, without need of gimmick or novelty. His insightful and thoughtful lyrics make it easy to imagine that if Hurt Street were located in some distant galaxy, this is still the music he would create.

An unlikely series of childhood ailments provided Luke with an early sense of perspective that many never find even as adults. A bout of spinal meningitis proved almost fatal, a paintball accident left him blind in one eye and some years later a severe heatstroke left him struggling to overcome temporary brain damage and amnesia. And though these experiences inevitably influence his music, it is not in the fatalistic way you might expect. While his songs may have that soulful ‘written on the porch because the house was too damned hot’ feel, the end result is a style that feels ever hopeful.

It is but a few times in a generation that an artist comes along with the potential to reflect so honestly the human condition. Such a calling requires a humility and self-awareness that seldom find an artist until late in his career, when he’s turned the corner from idealistic to philosophical. Often young singer-songwriters aspire to draw a picture with words, a melodic expression of the visual, hoping to capture a single meaningful moment in time. Luke aspires to capture our journey through it - and his sophomore album, “The River”, speaks to a brilliant departure on that journey.

The spring release of “The River” and a swell of media coverage have prompted renewed comparison to the likes of Ray LaMontagne. Each stylistically unique, Luke surrounds himself with exceptional musicians and remains keenly aware as to his place in the musical equation. His incomparable musicality requires more of the accompaniment than just support of the lyric, he allows it to build a distinctive setting in which to tell his story. When performing with his full band, Luke’s boisterous horn section and soulful voice are the perfect paring of audacity and nuance.

Luke’s writing is always honest and never self-indulgent, creating music that feels as much a part of the listener as the artist. His ‘damaged in transport but absolutely delivered’ charm has endeared him to his audience and encouraged a rabid following wherever he performs. Instinctively, Luke seems to realize that his success is always secondary to the song, resulting in a refreshing vulnerability that you couldn’t touch with a ten foot pole.

Music is at once frivolous and necessary. That rare artist willing to embrace this idea will become timeless, making the music that comes to describe generations and cultures, not simply as historical narrative, but as a conscious identity by which we willingly choose to define ourselves in real time.

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

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

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

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

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

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

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

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

TOH Round with Matt Walberg and the Living Situation, Hilary Romaine, & LC Jones

Presented by Two Old Hippies at Two Old Hippies

Not only is Matt Walberg one of the great talents that Nashville has to offer, he's one of the more fun musicians in town. A self-taught guitarist and vocalist from an early age, Matt Walberg has always devoted his professional ambitions to entertainment. Pursuing acting and theater as a child, it wasn't until High School that music took hold of his life. Matt is a dedicated, hard-working musician that is devoted to bringing joy through music to the world.

Matt Walberg's first performance was recorded at his Dad's studio at the age of three. Although it was not an award winning performance, the foreshadowing words that stood out were "Hit it, guys!" Raised by parents who worked in the field of entertainment, Matt was introduced at an early age to the stage and bright lights. It wasn't until High School that Matt made a go at being a professional entertainer. Between acting and vocal performances, Matt began playing acoustic guitar. He hasn't put it down since. Matt made the move to Tennessee in 2002 and attended MTSU for two years studying Recording Industry Management. Due to his desire to perform and be a songwriter, Matt moved to Nashville in 2005 where he began playing electric guitars and put together the theatrical rock group, H-Beam.

Civil Twilight with Knox Hamilton

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Civil Twilight brings a perfect blend of atmospheric sound and hazy storytelling that transports you to another place. Although Steven McKellar, his brother Andrew and Richard Wouters hail from South Africa, their sound is incredibly epic and their powerful song “Letters From The Sky” has provided the soundtrack to your every waking moment since its release. Written as an abstract concept by three lifelong friends, the song, along with their debut self-titled album, takes you to a time where it’s not quite daylight and not quite darkness. 

Civil Twilight provides a safe haven in their vast musical desert for you to seek refuge. Steven’s vocals come forth in an eerie falsetto that can only be described as a crosspollination of Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke. Richard’s drums are pounding reminders that the drummer always bestows the missing piece of the musical puzzle while Andrew’s guitar is the perfect complement that rounds out Civil Twilight’s lush soundscape, haunting yet soothing at the same time. 

Cape Town’s not exactly the center of the musical universe; while their South African roots provided much inspiration, the band grew tired of their surroundings and soon relocated to Los Angeles. After a brief stint in LA, they decided to see what America had to offer and found a studio in South Carolina, where they recorded their first self-titled album but felt a need to experience something bigger. For their sophomore release they decided to settle in Nashville and found themselves enamored with the culture and people. 

The writing process also shifted on Holy Weather (available March 27, 2012). The road is a strange beast; it can change how you perceive the world and moments that inspire you. Civil Twilight spent the better part of the last year on tour playing the likes of Bonnaroo and Voodoo Fest, opening for acts like Smashing Pumpkins and Florence & The Machine, and headlining their own shows across the country. When Steven started writing songs for their follow-up album, he used the most powerful tool at his disposal: nostalgia. When you’re constantly in motion, you can’t sit down and spend hours looking at something; you don’t have time to really absorb what you’re going through so you absorb subconsciously and write about it later as you reflect on it. There’s a difference between actually being in the moment, writing about it as it affects you, than when it’s flashing through your memory later on. This new approach to songwriting proved more challenging. However, all three members agreed that they wanted to craft an album that was a real test to play, not in terms of technique but in terms of exploring a longing that they hadn’t been able to discover on the previous record. 

Most of the songs are intangible to the listener. Every song is written from a different character’s perspective; Steven taps into fictional personae, inspired by real-life people he’s met and wonders how they’d adapt to certain situations. Put yourself into a Civil Twilight song and you’ll find yourself in a world where it’s not quite dark, yet not quite light, but exactly the place you want to be.

The Bang & Twang tour feat. Reverend Horton Heat with special guests Dale Watson and Rosie Flores

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

The Reverend Horton Heat is perhaps the most popular psychobilly artist of all time, really rivaled only by genre founders the Cramps. The Reverend (as both the three-man band and its guitar-playing frontman were known) built a strong cult following during the '90s through constant touring, manic showmanship, and a twisted sense of humor. The latter was nothing new in the world of psychobilly, and Heat's music certainly kept the trashy aesthetic of his spiritual forebears. The Reverend's true innovation was updating the psychobilly sound for the alternative rock era. In his hands, it was something more than retro-obsessed kitsch -- it had roaring distorted guitars, it rocked as hard as any punk band, and it didn't look exclusively to pop culture of the past for its style or subject matter. Most of The Reverend's lyrics were gonzo celebrations of sex, drugs, booze, and cars, and true to his name, his concerts often featured mock sermons in the style of a rural revivalist preacher. First performing as The Reverend Horton Heat in 1985, his backing band solidified around 1989 with bassist Jimbo Wallace and drummer Patrick "Taz" Bentley. Their initial recordings were released by that bastion of indie credibility, Sub Pop, at the height of the grunge craze; both 1991's Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em and 1993's The Full Custom Gospel Sounds of the Reverend Horton Heat helped build an enthusiastic underground audience. That resulted in a spell on major label Interscope, starting with 1994's Liquor in the Front (Bentley was subsequently replaced by Scott Churilla). After two more for Interscope, 1996's It's Martini Time and 1998's Space Heater, Heat returned to recording for independents, still a highly profitable draw on the concert circuit.

Judy Collins

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

In 1961, Jody Collins she released her masterful debut, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, which featured interpretative works of social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Tom Paxton. This began a wonderfully fertile thirty-five year creative relationship with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. Around this time Judy became a tastemaker within the thriving Greenwich Village folk community, and brought other singer-songwriters to a wider audience, including poet/musician Leonard Cohen – and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman. Throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and up to the present, she has remained a vital artist, enriching her catalog with critically acclaimed albums while balancing a robust touring schedule.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. She’s garnered several top-ten hits gold- and platinum-selling albums.

Judy began her impressive music career at 13 as a piano prodigy dazzling audiences performing Mozart's “Concerto for Two Pianos,” but the hardluck tales and rugged sensitivity of folk revival music by artists such as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger seduced her away from a life as a concert pianist. The focus and regimented practice of classical music, however, would be a source of strength to her inner core as she navigated the highs and lows of the music business.

“Rendezvous with Destiny:” the 101st Airborne Division and D-Day

Presented by Tennessee State Museum at Tennessee State Museum

The Tennessee State Museum opened an exhibition on June 6, 2014, the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, commemorating the service and elite tradition of the 101st Airborne Division. The exhibit, “Rendezvous with Destiny:” the 101st Airborne Division and D-Day, is free to the public and is on view in the gallery of the Military Branch of the Tennessee State Museum located in the War Memorial Building in downtown Nashville.

The 101st (“Screaming Eagles”), now headquartered at Fort Campbell, participated in the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944, when units of the 101st parachuted behind enemy lines in France. Their charge was to disrupt German defenses while providing invaluable support to the Allied troops who, hours later, stormed the beaches.

The 101st, activated in August 1942, underwent rigorous training in preparation for the heavy fighting ahead. An important part of that training occurred in Tennessee during the 1943 maneuvers. Almost as a premonition of the future, Major General William C. Lee, the first commander of the 101st, famously said: “The 101st…has no history, but it has a rendezvous with destiny.”

The drama and heroism of the 101st and its role in the liberation of Europe was recently captured in the HBO series, “Band of Brothers,” which was based on a book by Stephen Ambrose. “Band of Brothers” features a 101st unit, “Easy” Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, and its commanding officer, Richard “Dick” Winters.

The exhibition will feature a selection of historic artifacts from the museum at Fort Campbell and from the collection of the State Museum, as well as the uniform, pistol, and other personal items of Dick Winters, borrowed from a private collection. The exhibit will also showcase some selected scenes from “Band of Brothers,” through the cooperation of HBO.

“The 101st Airborne Division is one of the most storied and illustrious units in the U.S. Armed Forces,” Lois Riggins-Ezzell, Museum Director, said. “The museum is honored to present their history.”

The 101st ‘s post-World War II service will also be recognized including the division’s Vietnam, Desert Storm, Desert Shield service, as well as its current deployments.

“Rendezvous with Destiny:” the 101st Airborne Division and D-Day will be on view through January 10, 2015.

FLEX IT! My Body My Temple

Presented by The Parthenon at The Parthenon

For the summer and fall of 2014 The Parthenon Museum is collaborating with local social practice artist Adrienne Outlaw to invite other artists to come to Nashville and create a series of social practice artworks that address obesity. Social practice is a relatively new art form that involves the artist going out to interact and promote change within a community rather than working isolated in the studio to create an object. The multiple artists’ projects involved in this show will create fun and engaging ways to discuss making healthier choices and living a more active lifestyle.

FLEX IT! is comprised of eight projects by artists or artist teams who will be traveling to Nashville between the months of May through October 2014 to develop their projects and engage with the Nashville community. All these projects will culminate in an exhibition in The Parthenon Museum’s East Gallery from September 1, 2014 through January 10, 2015.

To learn more about the artists’ projects and how you might participate please visit the FLEX IT! My Body My Temple Facebook Page and Blog.

Eric Church | The Outsiders World Tour with Special Guest Halestorm

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

The Outsider World Tour features a one-of-a-kind, wide-open, 360 degree stage that’s decked out with 10 different microphone placements. Eric is focused on “turning the arena into a club where it all started,” so behind the stage – but almost close enough to touch - is THE CHOIR LOFT. The CHOIR LOFT is a section with seating a mere 10 rows off the floor in most venues, these seats start at eye level with Church.  There is limited seating in this section, but no matter where you sit this show is exciting and unlike any other. 

Church’s current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year. The album features his No. 1 hit “Give Me Back My Hometown” and his current hit single “Talladega.” He has received four CMA Award nominations in 2014 for Album of the Year (The Outsiders), Male Vocalist of the Year, Single and Song of the Year (both for “Give Me Back My Hometown”).

Pink Floyd Appreciation Society

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Tribute to the greatest Progressive band of all time, Pink Floyd! - Dark Side of the Moonin its entirety along with nuggets from great albums including The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, Meddle and Piper At The Gates of Dawn.

One lucky door prize winner will receive a pair of Roger Waters' Ca Ira tickets!

The Pink Floyd Appreciation Society originally formed in 2000 as a group of people dedicated to celebrating the work, life, and legions of fans of Pink Floyd. It is with this sense of community that the PFAS has flowed through out the years and continues to journey.

The PFAS band formed within the concept of the society as the focal point for members to rally around. Over the years there have been several incarnations of the band. At one point life took over and everyone went for a walk about. Nothing like Syds walk about but significant for The PFAS none-the-less.

In 2008 the flame was reignited with several of the original members and it was decided to have another go. During this period, a lot of rehearsals were had and shows were played. But, over the next couple of years the band went through another series of line-up changes until settling on the current line up. 

This line up, consisting of Chaz (Mother Pig) Howard, Erik Hellerman, J.D. Meek, Mac Smith, Matt Reno and Ted Lessman has been developing the show over the last several years. By focusing on performing the music with extreme detail while still allowing the music to breathe, while striving to deliver the best multi-media stage show possible, PFAS has hit upon a collaboration of musicians, crew and technologies that delight audiences at every show.

The SteelDrivers

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Nashville, Tennessee is a nexus – a point where tradition and innovation intersect, where commerce collides with art. It may be the only town around where salaried songwriters and full-time session musicians are as common as accountants and schoolteachers. Music is the product, and the factories line the street, from the swank Music Row mini-high-rises to the low-slung Sylvain Park bungalows. And only Nashville could give birth to a band like the SteelDrivers: a group of seasoned veterans – each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town’s commercial community – who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts to their souls’ reward. In doing so, they are braiding their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul, and other contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that is old as the hills but fresh as the morning dew. This is new music with the old feeling. SteelDrivers fan Vince Gill describes the band’s fusion as simply “an incredible combination.”

The SteelDrivers’ brand of bluegrass – intense, dark, poetic, and inescapably human – is a refreshing reminder of the timeless power of stringband music, and is captured perfectly on The SteelDrivers. Produced by Nashville ace Luke Wooten, The SteelDrivers was recorded mostly live on the studio floor, vocals and all. Its songs grapple with classic themes of regret, love, and redemption, from the escalating prison lament of “Midnight Train to Memphis” to the chilling murderer’s plea encapsulated in “If It Hadn’t Been for Love.” “East Kentucky Home” is a timeless traditional bluegrass lament, with its strains of homesickness, loss, and abandonment, but ingeniously reinvented with off-kilter rhythmic accents and a decidedly contemporary chord progression.

The willingness to set aside the unspoken rules that ruthlessly govern bluegrass set the SteelDrivers apart from the innumerable faceless acts vying for the bluegrass spotlight.

Jon Reep

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Does this face look familiar? Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" or have seen him on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep". If it’s not from his stand-up performances then you probably know Jon from Dodge's popular ad campaign as the "Hemi guy" where Jon is known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly in the Dodge Ram commercials who leans out of a beat-up car and utters the now famous line: "That thing gotta Hemi?"
Born in Hickory, NC, Jon moved to Raleigh to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater at North Carolina State University. In 2000 Jon was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Canada and has since been invited back to perform in the "Best of the Fest" and a "Gala" show. Other notable festival dates include performing at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and the Bonaroo Music & Arts Festival and the Vancouver Comedy Festival.
Now based in Los Angeles, Jon is one of the hardest working comics in America, performing on television, in films and selling out clubs and theaters across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters, super clever writing and of course the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis.

Belle Meade Plantation's 100 Years of Christmas

Presented by Belle Meade Plantation at Belle Meade Plantation

As the staff at Belle Meade Plantation packs up Christmas decorations every January, we begin thinking about the next year’s Christmas exhibit. This year we chose to do something very different from the past few years. We decided instead of focusing our Christmas exhibit on one holiday celebration in the history of Belle Meade that we should interpret the evolution of Christmas celebrations from the building of the Belle Meade Mansion in 1853, to the year the Mansion opened to the public as a museum in 1953.

Come and visit Belle Meade this holiday season and experience 100 years of Christmas.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

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

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

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

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

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

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

He is joined by bassist, Michael Rhodes, and pianist/keyboardist, Kevin McKendree.

An Astronaut’s Story: Space and Beyond
Speakers: Dr. Rhea Seddon and Capt. Robert “Hoot” Gibson, former NASA astronauts

Dr. Rhea Seddon was born and raised in Murfreesboro, Tenn. She received her college degree from the University of California at Berkeley and her medical degree from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis. She then did a residency in surgery. In 1978 she was selected by NASA as one of the first women astronauts. She flew on three space shuttle missions for a total of 30 days in space. She left the Astronaut Program in 1996, moved back to Murfreesboro and worked at Vanderbilt University Medical Center for 11 years. She now teaches healthcare professionals all over the country about teamwork. She is married to former astronaut, Robert “Hoot” Gibson, and they have four children.

Ms. Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Featured in the Oscar-winning documentart 20 Feet From Stardom,Grammy-winner Lisa Fischer (Best Female R&B Performance for her hit single “How Can I Ease the Pain") is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it. It’s easy to see why she works all the time: her astonishing range, her spot-on intonation, her mastery of the stage, the way her tone wraps itself around your heart and won’t let go, the infectious quality of her time feel: these things keep her on top of the list. But it’s the sweetness of her smile, her visible pleasure in watching her bandmates do their stuff, her glamorous-girl-next-door quality that make fans all over the world think she’s their own secret discovery (despite the fact that the YouTube version of her duet with Mick Jagger on ‘Gimme Shelter’ has millions of hits).

Dome Club Nashville - The Longest Night

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Adventure Science Center

Dome Club Nashville is is a monthly event showcasing immersive programs and artistic experiences designed to envelop visitors within the unique fulldome planetarium environment.

What’s “fulldome”? “Fulldome” refers to technologies that cover the entire surface area of a planetarium dome with graphics. Seated within the 63-foot diameter dome at the Sudekum Planetarium’s Judith Payne Turner Theatre, viewers are surrounded by visuals in front, above, and even behind them. Unlike the rectangular frame of a TV or movie screen, the dome allows visitors to feel like they’re part of the show. Powerful surround sound adds to the effect as well, creating an eye-opening viewing experience.

Jan. 15, 2015 - The Longest Night: A Winter's Tale

The Longest Night: A Winter's Tale: This is a one-of-a-kind fulldome planetarium show that captures its audience with a timeless fable of courage, generosity and renewal.

Its story explores the concept that winter is a time for Earth to rest, waiting for new growth in the spring.

Its star, a young girl born into a family of nomadic storytellers, embarks on a simple quest that leads her to a dragon’s nest. What will she discover there, and how will it help her save her village?

Morehead Planetarium collaborated with Paperhand Puppet Intervention to develop the story and visuals of "The Longest Night." The Morehead production team seamlessly wove together live-action video of Paperhand's world-class puppeteers with beautiful and intricate fulldome animation to create this innovative and imaginative show. Its cast and crew comprised dozens of puppeteers and production professionals, and The Paperhand Band created original music for the show.



01/15/15

Admission is $8, or $6 for Adventure Science Center members. All programs are suitable for general audiences unless otherwise noted.

Patchwork & Frankenstein: Large-Scale Collage/Paintings by Mandy Rogers Horton

Presented by The Arts Company at The Arts Company

Patchwork & Frankenstein – Large-Scale Collage/Paintings, Mandy Rogers Horton’s exhibition shows how a few small experiments with collage in 2010 opened up what now seem like endless possibilities of form and content for the artist. The images culled from magazines and catalogues serve as a vocabulary with which to negotiate desire, identity, and a search for meaning.  “The completed collages create narratives that make a quick visual connection with the viewer,” says Anne Brown, Arts Company owner, continuing that “Everything seems familiar, but a barrage of images collectively creates a whole new way of thinking about the “plenty” in our culture.  No matter the beauty of the images, sometimes the very “plenty of things” can overwhelm.  This exhibit is both fanciful and evocative, very satisfying to the mind and the eye.  The accompanying small sketches lend another dimension to the experience.”

The exhibit will open during the First Saturday Art Crawl December 6 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and during the Holiday Collectors Art Night on December 12 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.

Greensky Bluegrass

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

"There's this great duality to our band," reflects Greensky Bluegrass mandolinist, vocalist, and songwriter Paul Hoffman. "We're existing in a few different places at once: we're a bluegrass band and a rock band, we're song-driven and interested in extended improvisation."

"We play acoustic instruments," adds dobro player Anders Beck, "but we put on a rock'n'roll show. We play in bigger clubs and theaters, there's a killer light show, and we're as loud as your favorite rock band. It's not easy to make five acoustic instruments sound like this – it's something we've spent years working on."

From these seemingly irreconcilable elements, the five members of Greensky Bluegrass have forged a defiant, powerful sound that, while rooted in classic stringband Americana, extends outwards with a fearless, exploratory zeal. The tension and release between these components – tradition and innovation, prearranged songs and improvisation, acoustic tones and electric volume – is what makes them so thrillingly dynamic, in concert and on record. "In theory," Hoffman explains, "greensky is the complete opposite of bluegrass. So, by definition, we are contrasting everything that isn't bluegrass with everything that is."

That their sound is so seamless, so organic, is testament to Greensky's enduring vision and tireless dedication. Since their first rumblings at the start of the millennium, they have emerged as relentless road warriors, creating a captivating live show while at the same time developing a knack for evocative, disarming songcraft.

Their fifth studio album, If Sorrows Swim – available September 9, 2014 and distributed by Thirty Tigers – is their most riveting yet, balancing gripping songs (by Hoffman and guitarist Dave Bruzza) and remarkably thoughtful, tight arrangements with an instrumental fluidity born of countless hours playing together – on stage and off.

13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Presented by OZ at OZ Nashville

“[13 Most Beautiful] highlights yet another of Warhol’s artistic endeavours with just the right mix of reverence and charm.” – BBC UK

Andy Warhol is widely regarded as one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century. His Screen Tests are revealing portraits of hundreds of different individuals—both famous and anonymous—who were visitors to his studio, the Factory, between 1964 and 1966. Each subject was asked to pose, lit with a strong keylight, and filmed by Warhol with his stationary 16mm Bolex camera. Each screen test lasted only as long as the 100-foot roll of film. 13 Most Beautiful is a selection of Warhol’s four-minute, silent film portraits set to music performed by Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, both formerly of the indie NYC downtown band, Luna. The multimedia performance incorporates a large-scale video projection of Warhol’s Screen Tests above the musicians performing live on stage. 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests is a project jointly commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum and Pittsburgh Cultural Trust for the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts 2008.

Bahamas

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs. His new album, Bahamas Is Afie, will be released August 19, 2014 on Brushfire Records/Universal.

Bahamas is Afie is a coming of age record. Self-titled and self-produced – It is the next step in the evolution of Jurvanen’s songcraft, guitar mastery, and melodic pop hooks – following his previous full-lengths Pink Strat (2009) and Barchords (2011). Bahamas is Afie remains a sparse, moving, headphone album, complemented by a more developed arrangement of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion, and chamber choruses that transport the listener from moving seas to a search for strength, to a place of resolve and comfort.

Chuck Ragan

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

In a musical life that spans close to three decades, Chuck Ragan has consistently worn his heart on his sleeve, and carved out a musical niche in the process. First with post-hardcore trailblazers Hot Water Music and subsequently on his own, he’s built a large and singularly powerful body of work whose honesty, immediacy and warmth have won the loyalty of a fiercely devoted international fan base that’s supported him through his various musical incarnations.

Chuck Ragan’s bracing new release Till Midnight once again confirms what the iconoclastic singer-songwriter’s fans have known all along: that he’s a deeply compelling songwriter and an effortlessly charismatic performer, as well as a true believer in music’s ability to illuminate and inspire.

Tinney Contemporary presents Stasis: Heavenly Bodies

Presented by Tinney Contemporary at Tinney Contemporary

Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present Stasis: Heavenly Bodies - a solo exhibition by Carla Ciuffo with select and new artworks from Stasis. Creating contrast within negative space Stasis: Heavenly Bodies presents images infused with celestial light, textures and organic forms. Images, most found in nature, are composed as both buoyant and free falling, defying gravity, as well as structured tableaux. Ciuffo's photo art incorporates digitally manipulated images printed on Archival papers and mounted on sleek surfaces of crystal-like polished acrylic. 

We are also pleased to be featuring pieces by local jewelry designer, Alizah Greenberg, during the December 6th opening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and during the Holiday Collectors Art Night on December 12 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. 

Alizah Greenberg's work is organic, designed to reflect the world around us in all its imperfect beauty. In Greenberg's  mind, she could envision how raw gold, silver, and diamonds, could be intertwined with natural rock, crystal, semi-precious stones, leather, and polished wood to create jewelry that was both original and eminently wearable. To her wonderment, these pieces did not exist. So at age 40 Greenberg began creating the handcrafted jewelry she wanted to wear for herself. Every piece is unique, reflecting the influences in her life...the wonderful places she has lived in and traveled to...the beautiful children she's raised...the authors, artists and musicians she loves. Unknowingly, each experience-profound or otherwise-impacts the pieces she creates...joy, love, heartache, beauty, laughter, contemplation...earth and soul. Alizah Greenberg grew up in Miami and lives in Nashville with her husband, four children and dog Ozzy.

DaleAnn Bradley is 5 time IBMA Female Vocalist of the year & brings her beautiful heartfelt vocals to us, along with her special talent of finding songs from other genres and changing them to fit our style of music. Playing mandolin for Sister Sadie is none other than the very talented and soulful Tina Adair. Tina is such a powerful singer and musician & brings a youthful confidence to our group. Joining us on fiddle is the always charismatic Deanie Richardson. If you've never seen Deanie play live, you're in for such a treat. She commands the stage like no other. Deanie is a full time member of Nashville favorites, The Likely Culprits. Deanie has a busy schedule, as she also freelances with The Chieftains. So, we have another incredible fiddle player & singer - Kati Penn Williams who will step in when Deanie is unavailable. Kati has found much success in recent years with her band Newtown. On banjo, we have Gena Britt who comes from the great state of North Carolina and is currently freelancing as well.

Generationals with ELEL

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, friends since high school and Generationals co-captains since 2008, have been in each others' faces for most of this century. Natural songwriting partners, they made their first three records at home with the help of mutual friend Daniel Black, and in 2013 they launched straight into their fourth with surprising post-tour energy, but after years of creative brain-melding, the dyad had reached a point of ultra-familiarity and comfort in their work routine that, to them, threatened quicksand. They began to suspect their own productivity of being rut in disguise.

Determined to keep things fresh, they sought out a new producer who might be able shake things up, surprise them, and bring something new to the project. How about Richard Swift? they said. He's the best, he's the boss, he's like the John Keating of cool drum sounds—a perfect fit for a pair of poppy throwback tape-lovers like us.

The Louisiana duo made their way, yellow brick road-style, to Cottage Grove, Oregon, ready to give their tapes over to Swift's cultishly venerated magic touch, but the collaboration was hardly the scrap-it-all, start-from-scratch, give-up-the-reins-and-let-the-guru-do-his-thing scenario Ted and Grant had expected—hoped for even—when they began their pilgrimage to Swift's National Freedom studio in February. Swift deemed the demos album-worthy after all and the original versions were saved at his urging. With a little tightening rather than a vibe transplant, the songs solidified into a cohesive, finished, good-feeling record.

Jackie Greene with Jabe Beyer

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

MEET AND GREET ALSO AVAILABLE. CLICK FOR MORE INFO.

Jackie Greene began his career in his mid-teens working the bar and open mic circuit in and around his hometown of Sacramento. Since then, he has recorded seven albums and two EP’s, released a DVD, and published a book of lyrics. Upon witnessing his performance at Bonnaroo, Jon Pareles of The New York Times had this to say about the singer, songwriter, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, “Jackie Greene could be the Prince of Americana. That's capital P, and not because Mr. Greene favors the color purple but for some musical parallels.”

Jackie released his acoustic-laced breakthrough, Gone Wonderin’ in 2002, and followed it with two more albums, Rusty Nails and Sweet Somewhere Bound, on indie label Dig Records. In 2005, he contributed to the Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain soundtrack, and a year later he issued his critically acclaimed Verve debut, American Myth, which he co-produced with Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin.In 2008, Greene made the move from Verve to Savoy and released Giving Up The Ghost, of which American Songwriter wrote, “Greene adroitly maneuvers the crannies of blues, folk, rock and soul with an impressive songwriting toolbox that uses a wide palette to express his simple, but not simplistic, tales.”

Small Tempest, an EP of originals, quickly followed Giving Up The Ghost. In 2010, he dropped another EP of Grateful Dead covers, and in the same year his solo and Deadhead worlds converged on the epic Till the Light Comes.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

Nightcap Concert Series: Melissa Rose & Jim Lovensheimer

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

Nightcap Concert Series featuring Melissa Rose, piano, and Jim Lovensheimer, narrator and pre-concert talk by Joy Calico.

Enoch Arden by Richard Strauss

Lovensheimer and Rose perform Enoch Arden, Richard Strauss’ melodrama setting of an 1864 epic poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Composed in 1897 for the actor Ernst von Possart, the work was performed widely by the two friends. It continued a popular Romantic tradition of creating theater by setting spoken poetry to music, and was a popular example of the chamber music genre to which Arnold Schoenberg was responding when he wrote Pierrot Lunaire fifteen years later.

Pre-concert talk by Joy Calico

Today, spoken text with musical accompaniment is most recognizable as a foreshadowing of the modern cinematic soundtrack. Calico elaborates on the melodrama genre, and Enoch Arden’s place in that tradition, in her pre-concert talk.

Paula Cole

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Grammy winner and 7 time Grammy nominee Paula Cole has released six solo albums spanning an eighteen year career. She has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton (and many more.) Cole’s emotionally deep and thrilling performances are a trademark. Poetic and fiercely touching, intelligent writing makes Cole stand apart. Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee to name a few. From a small town in Massachusetts Paula Cole was raised in a musical family with whom she and her daughter remain close. Cole is a scholarship alumna from Berklee College of Music with a background in jazz, received her first record deal with a jazz label (which she declined), and has collaborated with many jazz artists. Paula teaches and gives clinics in a spirit of giving back to the circle of music. With a loving allegiance to her fans, she maintains loyal communication online and after her live shows. As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her work, “This Fire”, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. From her top ten hits of the 1990’s to her more recent critically acclaimed albums, Paula Cole continues to write, produce, record and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.

STEREOSPARKS with Hank & Cupcakes and Trinity Schill Kill

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

It is the risk-takers and the history makers who see the potential in chasing a single spark into darkness. Within a single spark lies the possibility of blazing heat and light. Nashville-based pop rockers Stereosparks are in full pursuit of that spark and are poised to burn bright with their debut EP, The Secret EP.

“Secret (Say You'll Stay)”, the EP's first single and music video, opens with a five-part harmony confession, reminiscent of Imogen Heap's “Hide and Seek”. Singer Storey Condos' beautifully vulnerable voice declares, “I've got a little secret in my pocket” and the confession of the century is underway. Condos describes the premise of “Secret” as “This feeling that you have, or this something that you've done that you don't want other people to see and you're afraid of what they'll do if they do.”

Slowly, the “Secret” veil begins to lift, with boiling, synthesized lap steel guitar, eery toy piano, and haunting guitar arpeggios contributing to the conversation's tension. “It's dark, but it's powerful and it's beautiful”, Condos says. Soon, a kick drum cannon and symphony, complete with epic string section and roaring timpani, transport us to the song's crescendo, where a fully exposed Condos pleadingly concedes, “I've made a mess/ I'm on the ledge/ Are you gonna push me over the edge? Say you'll stay...”

Produced by 2-time GRAMMY winner Chad Carlson, The Secret EP is a three song illustration of the band's one-of-a-kind artistry, dimension, and pop sensibilities. By embracing the beauty and honesty of darkness and light, Stereosparks is a band that anyone can identify with. On one hand, the anthemic “Let it Burn” celebrates the freedom and power of letting go and living in the moment: “And when the walls that surround us/ Crumble down all around us/ Tonight, tonight, tonight/ We'll let it burn”.  “Break You”, however, juxtaposes a lullaby-esque melody with thunderous percussion—craftily imitating the track's theme of one's sadistic addiction to destroying her lover.

Watkins Visiting Artists Series: Jessica Hische

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

Letterer, illustrator and type designer Jessica Hische–at the age of 31, one of the most influential graphic designers in the world–will launch the 2015 Watkins Visiting Artists Series with a talk. The presentation will begin at 6:30pm in the Watkins Theater.

The event is free and the public is invited. The Watkins Visiting Artists Series is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Known internationally for her award-winning lettering, illustrations and typefaces, Ms. Hische is also an avid “internetter,” with a special interest in the intersection of arts and technology through the lens of web typography (she has the word “Type” tattooed on her left triceps). A native of Charleston, S.C., who grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania, she graduated in 2006 from Tyler School of Art (at Temple University) with a degree in Graphic and Interactive Design, then worked for Headcase Design (Philadelphia) and at Louise Fili Ltd. (New York).

In 2009, at the age of 25, she launched her freelance career; her extensive and impressive credits include projects in advertising, books, identity, editorial, marketing/merchandise for The Atlantic, Harper Collins, Target, The New York Times, Wes Anderson, Dave Eggers, Google, American Express, Nike, Samsung, OXFAM America, Speedo, Penguin Books, Neiman Marcus, Papyrus, Starbucks, Victoria’s Secret, MailChimp, Pinterest and Tiffany & Co., among numerous quirky and corporate others. She has been honored as an Art Directors Club “Young Gun” and in Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 (twice).

While not primarily a web designer, many of her personal projects are web-centric and she has become as well known for her side projects as for her client work. In her project Daily Drop Cap (2009), she created a new illustrative letter daily, working through the alphabet a total of twelve times; at its peak, the site had more than 100,000 visitors per month.

She has also created a number of educational micro-sites including “Mom, This is How Twitter Works,” “Should I Work for Free?” and “Don’t Fear the Internet” (with Russ Maschmeyer, whom she married in 2012), each as entertaining as it is practical. (She even coined the term “procrastiworking” to describe her tendency to procrastinate on client work by working on personal projects.) Many of these sites reflect an engagement with new media and social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter (where she has over 88,000 followers), and they also demonstrate her advocacy for artists’ rights in an era of freelancing and liberal attitudes about intellectual property.

Ms. Hische also embodies a new mode of presentation and marketing that rejects age-old distinctions between professional and personal identities. In all these respects, she is a designer whose career addresses the possibilities and predicaments of digital media for artists and creative people working today.

Ms. Hische works out of Title Case, a by-appointment-only collaborative studio in San Francisco (with fellow letterer and designer Erik Marinovich) as well as the Pencil Factory illustration and design collective in Brooklyn. An engaging, spirited presenter, since 2010 she has spoken at 50+ conferences and seminars all over the world—Auckland, Oslo, Dusseldorf, Dublin, Berlin, Barcelona, Guadalajara, Melbourne, Manila, Vancouver, Copenhagen and Capetown, for starters. She serves on the board of directors of the Type Directors Club, the leading international organization whose purpose is to support excellence in typography, both in print and on screen.

“Jessica Hische is one of the most influential letterers on the planet, inspiring our design students and faculty, in equal measure, with her prolific output of brilliant typography, illustration and pearls of wisdom,” said Dan Brawner, chair of the Department of Graphic Design at Watkins. “We are very proud to welcome her to Nashville to share her perspectives on art and design, the technologies she’s embraced in her unique way, and the rights and responsibilities of creative people.”

Now in its fifth year, The Watkins Visiting Artists Series, with support from the Humanities Tennessee Grant Program, welcomes nationally and internationally recognized fine artists, designers, filmmakers, educators and critics to the campus and the community. The guest artists, whose work crosses many disciplinary boundaries, give public presentations, sharing their expertise and perspectives on their careers and providing insight into issues facing contemporary artists and designers. The VAS offers the area’s cultural community a rare opportunity to engage the work and ideas of trendsetting visual artists, designers, filmmakers and intellectuals. The critically acclaimed initiative has not only brought a number of internationally renowned artists to Nashville—like first-time visitors Harrell Fletcher, R. H. Quaytman, David Hilliard, Jonathan Katz, Alec Soth and Artemio Rodriguez—but it has also invigorated the local art scene by introducing artists working in new media and performance—artists like Nick Briz, Jon Satrom and Liz Magic Laser (2013 New York Armory Artist)—and those expanding the parameters of traditional media and art practice—such as Chris Sickels, Deborah Luster (2013 Guggenheim Fellow) and Natalia Almada (2013 MacArthur Fellow).

Watkins is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in MetroCenter; free parking is available in the campus lot. For more information, including updates to programming and future series guests, visit Watkins.edu or call 615-383-4848.

Founded in 1973, Humanities Tennessee is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting lifelong learning, civil discourse, and an appreciation of history, diversity, and community among Tennesseans. To learn more, visit humanitiestennessee.org.

The Rocketboys

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

For The Rocketboys, 2012 was a resilient journey. After nearly calling it quits when half the band parted ways in early 2011, the remaining three members resuscitated the acclaimed melodic rock band with a lush, cathartic album: “Build Anyway.”

Since “Build Anyway,” The Rocketboys have logged nearly 150 shows (with the likes of Twenty-One Pilots, Relient K, The Almost, and The Mowgli’s), released a brand new Total Recall-inspired music video (tinyurl.com/totalrocketboys), and created a rapidly expanding collection of new material for the band’s third LP.

Still inspired by the Mother Teresa quote that gave life to the band after nearly calling it quits, “What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight: build anyway,” The Rocketboys continue to build.

Yonder Mountain String Band

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music by its own set of rules. Bending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre. Dave Johnston points out “What could be more pure than making your own music.” Yonder’s sound cannot be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from [their] own experiences and doing the best job possible.” The band continues to play by their own rules on their new record The Show.

The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country over the past eleven years playing such varied settings as festivals, rock clubs, Red Rocks Amphitheater in the band’s home state, and recently the Democratic National Convention in Denver at Mile High Stadium opening for Barack Obama. Their loyal fanbase has been built from this diverse setting of music venues as fans latched on to their genre-defying original sound.

of Montreal with Nedelle Torrisi

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Defining of Montreal is impossible. There are too many perspectives to consider, angles to explore, layers to uncover. Just when you think you have a concept of what kind of creature they are, they transform into something unexpected and new. As a result, each album holds the opportunity for re-discovery,  re-immersion, re-appreciation.


On Lousy with Sylvianbriar, this paradigm holds true once more. The record was created with a new songwriting approach, a different recording method, and a fresh group of musicians.

Seeking creative inspiration, Kevin Barnes re-located to San Francisco where he spent days soaking in the strange surroundings and channeling the city’s energy into his writing. After a very prolific period there, he returned to Athens, GA, and assembled the cast of musicians to begin the sessions.
Barnes eschewed computer recording -- with its pitch correction, limitless effects plug-ins and editing possibilities -- and instead, with the help of engineer Drew Vandenberg (Deerhunter, Toro y Moi), he recorded Lousy with Sylvianbriar in his home studio on a 24-track tape machine.

With no computer tricks to fall back on, the band -- Kevin Barnes (guitars,bass,vocals), Rebecca Cash (vocals), Clayton Rychlik (drums,vocals), Jojo Glidewell (keys), Bob Parins (pedal steel,bass), and Bennet Lewis (guitars,mandolin) -- could only get out of the recordings what they put into them.

Most of the tracking was recorded live with the band in the same room together. They worked quickly, with the band members composing their parts on the fly and with little second guessing. The album was recorded in just three weeks.

“I knew I wanted the process to be more in line with the way people used to make albums in the late 60s and early 70s,” reveals Barnes. “I wanted to work fast and to maintain a high level of spontaneity and immediacy. I wanted the songs to be more lyric-driven, and for the instrumental arrangements to be understated and uncluttered.”

Opening track and lead single “Fugitive Air” feels like a Stones-y anthem, with sparks of Philip K. Dick’s psychedelic prose, Ralph Bakshi’s cartoon violence, and William S. Burroughs’ hyper-paranoia.
“Belle Glade Missionaries” finds Barnes lyrically at his most political, backed by a soundtrack that is pure Dylan circa Highway 61 Revisited.

Female vocalist Rebecca Cash makes several appearances on the album, taking the lead on the plaintive “Raindrop in My Skull,” where her and Barnes share a Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris-inspired duet.

“She Ain’t Speakin’ Now” ranks among of Montreal’s all-time great songs, transforming its brooding acoustic guitar intro into a visceral angst-ridden rocker that sounds like the best moments of Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

The album’s closer, “Imbecile Rages,” a caustic and doleful epitaph for a crumbling relationship, is one of Barnes’ most raw and personal statements.

Like the classic albums that inspired it, this is an album to be explored, to be lived with, to be listened to in happiness and in darkness, to be dissolved into. To be played very loudly at parties and with eyes closed, in headphones, alone. It should become dog-eared and dirty with use and it should lessen the blow of our enemies, in all their forms.

18th annual Watkins Interior Design Student Exhibit: Awards Reception

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

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will recognize the best of the year at an awards reception for the 18th annual Interior Design Student Exhibit, a juried show featuring works by Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design degree candidates.

Category and Grand Prize winners, based on craftsmanship, creativity and digital rendering skills, will be announced at 6:30pm by Cheryl Gulley, associate professor and chair of the interior design department. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

All Watkins Interior Design majors are eligible to submit projects (created since Spring 2014) in eight categories: Residential, Commercial, Introductory Presentation Skills, Intermediate Presentation Skills, Lighting or Furniture Design, Computer Modeling, Portfolio, and Sustainability.

The show opens January 9 and will close after the awards reception on January 23.

Watkins Interior Design majors are consistently recognized for their creativity and professionalism in both academic competitions and community involvement. Watkins students have been honored by the Tennessee Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers’ with the Jane D. Reagor scholarship prize (2011-13) and with first prize in the 2012 student competition. Alumni of the program can be found in commercial, residential, hotel, restaurant, healthcare and furniture design.

About the program
The Watkins Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design program promotes a curriculum intended to educate the student who is intent on a professional career as a registered interior designer with strong links to the professional communities that are shaping the twenty-first century. Students who earn the BFA degree will possess professional presentation techniques and technical skills, will be capable of creating innovative designs, analyze and problem solve, and understand the application of appropriate material use and code requirements. Courses offered within the interior design major encourage the student to develop imaginative, responsible solutions to problems created by social needs and economic constraints, as well as the material and physical limitations of the built environment. The integration of fine art classes elevates the student's ability to develop resourceful responses and further balances the increasing demands of technology. Watkins offers an optional concentration in Sustainable Design as well as a Certificate in Interior Design (CID), a series of introductory courses that make up the foundation year of the college’s undergraduate degree (BFA). Watkins’ Interior Design program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), recognizing that the standards and education given are of the highest quality.

A Path Appears: From the Creators of 'Half the Sky' | NPT Presents: Community Cinema

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

A Path Appears investigates young women in America forced into a life of prostitution and the innovative programs that have evolved to achieve remarkable results in empowering their lives. Sex trafficking and prostitution. Domestic slavery. Teen pregnancy. The devastation of poverty. These troubling situations are happening not just halfway across the world, but also in our own backyards — in Chicago and Nashville and Boston. In the second part, the series continues around the globe tracking children in Haiti, living in abject poverty after years of political corruption during times of violent protest and captures the transformation of Kenya’s most notorious slum through expanded education for girls.

Nashville Flipside Presents

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

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

G-EAZY – From The Bay To The Universe Tour

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Dressed in black with his hair slicked back, G-Eazy adds a touch of class to hip-hop. For as traditionally dapper as he may be, he's got both feet firmly planted in the future. So what does the future look like for the producer, songwriter, and rapper? Well, it's just as bright as he is…

Raised in Oakland, CA, G-Eazy made the decision to enroll at Loyola University New Orleans because of their strong music industry program where he started to cultivate and craft his own inimitable style while still in college. For the budding artist, the partying wasn't nearly as important as creating. He missed more than a few keggers so he could lay down tracks in his dorm room for a series of buzz-generating mixtapes culminating in his 2011 breakout, Endless Summer.

With the release of Endless Summer, G-Eazy started to garner attention from both the backpackers and the mainstream. Diploma in hand, he hit 2012 running. During that summer's Warped Tour, he produced, wrote, and recorded what would become his full-length debut, Must Be Nice. Blending elegant production with a sly, slick, and smooth flow, the album landed at #3 on the iTunes Hip Hop Chart completely independent of a label.

That next chapter is already unfolding. 2013 saw G-Eazy complete his first headline tour, selling out shows everywhere from New York, Milwaukee, and Salt Lake City to Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Looking more like a Tarantino hero than a standard MC, he stirred up a frenzy among the heavily female crowds, dodging a bras or two from the stage on a nightly basis. From the overwhelming success of the tour Paste Magazine named G-Eazy in their top artists to watch in 2013, High Times Magazine named him the "Best New Artist of 2013," and Lil Wayne tapped him to join the America's Most Wanted Festival nationwide tour.

The response has only grown more fervent, with G-Eazy's second nationwide headline tour leading to the release of his highly anticipated new album These Things Happen, which topped the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B and Top Rap Albums Charts, also earning the #3 spot on the Billboard 200 and the Top Digital Albums Chart. The critics are in agreement with G-Eazy's legions of fans, with Billboard dubbing G-Eazy "The Young Elvis" in a multi-page feature story and The New York Times stating that G-Eazy is "clever, approachable and extremely legible" on These Things Happen. Even after an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and VIBE's proclamation that "G-Eazy is, in fact, already a star, or at the very least destined to become one," his goal remains the same as it did when he first started.

Also performing: Kehlani, Kool John, Jay Ant

Shannon and Heather Slaughter & County Clare

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Recently adding two new band members, this Alabama-based ensemble delivers a high-energy bluegrass sound rooted deeply in classic country tradition. Now receiving widespread acclaim, John Boulware (fiddle) and Casey Murray (banjo), from Chattanooga, Tennessee and Spring Garden, Alabama, respectively, join Ron Inscore (mandolin), Heather Slaughter (bass), and Shannon Slaughter (guitar) as County Clare to round out their 2012 Tour Dates, including a performance at the world-famous Station Inn in Nashville.



Lead vocalist Shannon Slaughter, known for his work with The Lonesome River Band and Lou Reid and Carolina, is the recent MerleFest 2012 Chris Austin Songwriting Contest Winner in the Country Category. His 2010 single “It’s So Hard to Stumble (When You’re Down On Your Knees)” earned an IBMA Nomination for Best Bluegrass Gospel Song of the Year. Shannon’s solo record, “Sideman Steps Out,” charted quickly in 2012 with tracks spending several weeks at a time in the top 10.

Admired for their powerful duet singing, Shannon and his wife Heather captivate their audiences with authentic performances of country favorites, driving bluegrass traditionals, and award-winning original ballads. Each member brings a vast amount of professional experience to the stage, having played and recorded with the likes of IIIrd Tyme Out, Mountain Heart, The Lonesome River Band, Larry Stephenson, and Lou Reid and Carolina.

Shannon and Heather Slaughter & County Clare promises a fresh, energizing sound in the midst of many new emerging bands. Entertaining on stage and off, County Clare is truly enjoyable.

Ragtime, the Musical

Presented by Circle Players, Inc. at Tennessee State University - Performing Arts Center

Three families from very different segments of society pursue the American Dream in the early 1900s. Their lives become intertwined in a story of social justice, prejudice, wealth and poverty, despair, freedom and hope. It was a new century, an idealistic era when time and eternity converge on the bars and lines of ragtime music, and history is a bittersweet melody, born of pain, but full of defiant joy!

Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, Ragtime is three distinctly American tales-- that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician -- united by their courage, compassion, belief in the promise of the future and what it means to live in America. Ragtime the Musical features a large ensemble cast of singers and actors and a Tony-winning score drawing upon many musical styles.

An Evening with John Oates and Special Guests Benefitting the T.J. Martell Foundation

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

John Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and playing the guitar since the age of five, his calling in life was never in question. Born in New York City, his family moved to a small town outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the early 1950′s….a move that would change the course of his life. Like most kids at that time, the impact of the early days of rock left a lasting impression on John. At the age of four he witnessed his first live concert: Bill Haley and the Comets playing their classic rockabilly hits at a local amusement park.

When it came to influences John was open to more than just the top 40 hits. His friends’ older brother turned him on to the nascent folk music scene that began to sweep the country in the early 1960′s. John’s interest in traditional American music began and he immersed himself in discovering primitive Appalachian Scotch Irish ballads, bluegrass, delta blues and the ragtime guitar styles performed by many of the newly rediscovered bluesmen and folk singers who began to make appearances at the Newport and Philadelphia folk festivals. At the same time he had the unique opportunity to attend shows at the famous Uptown Theater hearing many of the R&B legends like Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Curtis Mayfield as well as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Absorbing it all, he developed a kind of musical split personality.

In the late 1960′s John moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University to be closer to the city’s music scene. In 1966, he wrote and recorded his first single “I Need Your Love,” recorded at the legendary Virtue Sound Studio on North Broad Street, and released on the Crimson label owned by a local music store called the Record Museum. The song was arranged by Bobby Martin, who at the time was producing and arranging for Gamble and Huff. The single received airplay on Philly’s R&B radio stations and John began to divide his time between being a student and a professional musician.

When John first met Daryl Hall it was their mutual love for urban rhythm and blues blended with the more rural roots of Americana music that created their unique sound. Since the formation of their partnership in the early 1970′s Hall & Oates have gone on to record 21 albums which have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have scored 10 number one records, over 20 top 40 hits and have toured the world for decades. Their involvement in the original “Live Aid” concert and the ground breaking “We Are The World” charity recording have further established them as legendary artists who have personally and through their music, stood the test of time. Their influence on modern pop music has been cited by numerous contemporary bands, like the Gym Class Heroes, the Killers and Hot Chelle Rae, all of whom have credited and acknowledged Hall & Oates’s considerable contribution to American popular music.

In addition to their numerous American Music, MTV awards and multiple Grammy nominations, in 2005 they were inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame and in May of 2008 were presented the prestigious BMI Icon Award for their outstanding career achievement in song writing. In April 2014 Hall & Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Since 1999, John has recorded five solo albums: “Phunk Shui,” “1000 Miles of Life,” “Mississippi Mile” and a live album called “The Bluesville Sessions.” His latest project is called: A GOOD ROAD TO FOLLOW which began as a series of digital singles featuring collaborations with legendary as well as new rising stars. In March 2014 the songs were compiled into a critically acclaimed fifteen song, three disc album. The wide range of songs and productions showcases the unique musical diversity that has become the trademark of his artistic talent.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

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

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

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

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

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

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

He is joined by bassist, Michael Rhodes, and pianist/keyboardist, Kevin McKendree.

Florencia en el Amazonas

Presented by Nashville Opera Association at TPAC - James K. Polk Theater

Inspired by the writings of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this ravishingly beautiful romantic opera is an examination of love in all of its joys and folly.  In 1910, seven people board a small steamboat for a voyage down the Amazon River toward an unexplored jungle paradise.  But soon the characters find themselves on a surreal journey that dares to venture deep into the mysteries of the human heart.  Among all the passengers, Florencia seeks the most desperate love of all:  Lost love. A true love she long ago let slip through her fingers, and now vows to find again.  Join us as we take a voyage into the sensual world of “magic realism”, overflowing with a vibrant orchestral score inspired by the lush romanticism of Puccini and Ravel, and featuring a poignant story that will touch your heart and make your soul soar like an emerald jungle butterfly amid the foliage of the tropical rain forest.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lucy Hale

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

“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.

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.

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.
