Bye Bye Liver: The Nashville Drinking Play

Presented by Bye Bye Liver: The Nashville Drinking Play at Blue Bar and Rack Room

 "Consistently funny and gregarious" - The Nashville Scene
"You'll be cracking up whether it's shots or seltzer in your glass" - Sauce Magazine

"A new high in low-brow entertainment" - Theater Examiner

Saturday nights in Nashville will never be the same again...

Since opening in February of 2012, Bye Bye Liver: The Nashville Drinking Play has been attracting weekly, sold out crowds and garnering rave reviews. The show is a fun, fast-paced sketch comedy show that takes a satirical look at the drinking culture.

Whether it's the girl we all know that should never, ever drink liquor, the mind-reading piano player who can make or break an evening with a song, or the pack of girls who ALWAYS go to the bathroom in a group, it's all here and it's all hilariously lampooned in Bye Bye Liver.

And to liven things up even further, the cast plays everyone's favorite social games with the audience. The games will have audience members choosing sides in Would You Rather, guessing songs in Name That Tune, or even finding love as we attempt to test contestant’s compatibility in Match Maker. Guests of Bye Bye Liver will join an ensemble of the finest local sketch comedy actors in this interactive romp through the pratfalls and pitfalls of Nashville’s favorite past time: Drinking!

Bye Bye Liver, which began in 2006 in Chicago, has embarked upon a mission to expand to all parts of the globe. After opening successful shows all over the Midwestern United States and Canada, Bye Bye Liver is excited to make its southern debut in Nashville.

Bye Bye Liver was created by The Pub Theater Company, originally formed in 1998, by students in Middle Tennessee State University’s Theatre Program. After five years of performing in and around Nashville as N.A.S.N.N.I.P. (Not Always Shakespeare, Not Necessarily in the Park), the group relocated to Chicago and began producing shows as The Pub Theater. The Pub Theater Company is thrilled to be returning to their Nashville roots with Bye Bye Liver, a fun, fast-paced celebration of the drinking culture

Loretta Lynn In Concert

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

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

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

Alejandro Escovedo and Joe Ely

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Escovedo's rise has been a gradual, steady incline rather than a quick ascendance. But it has deepened and burnished his music making it closer to the bone, where it begins to break, while deepening his insight and his ability to find that insight in performance. His tireless touring and dogged determination to place one album after another has taken him through many musical scenes. Remaining the same persona within each, he is an artist who doesn’t settle for the easy way out.

It is a journey that has taken him from Texas to California to New York and back again to Texas, encompassing a breadth of music as varied as the many bands he was part of before embarking on a solo career. In the 1970s, he surfaced on San Francisco’s no-holds-barred punk scene centered around the Mabuhay Gardens in North Beach as a guitarist in The Nuns. As a member of the band Rank and File he helped unite the disparate worlds of punk and country in the 1980s. After he moved back to Austin, the True Believers combined all manner of Americana music in a harbinger of what was to come in Alejandro’s solo career which begun in 1992 with the album Gravity.

Joe Ely is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist whose music touches on honky-tonk, Texas Country, Tex-Mex, and rock and roll. Ely has had a genre-crossing career, performing with Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Tupelo, Los Super Seven, The Chieftains, and James McMurtry in addition to his early work with The Clash and more recent acoustic tours with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and Guy Clark.

Caitlin Rose w/Los Colognes and Goodnight Ned

Presented by The Basement at The Basement

Exploring your emotions can make for a good song, but it’s shining light on those which plague us all that builds the backbone of the truly great ones. Coupled with tireless melodies that seep into the small spaces between your bones; it’s the kind of music that brings on little movements when life has gotten too stiff. This is what Caitlin Rose does best. Her lyrics – visceral, illustrative, witty and wry – are pieces of stories that examine matters of the heart through a unique lens that makes us all see a bit more clearly: from the loneliness of relationships, to palpable dissolving human connectivity, to the loss of love with none of the melodrama. At her core, Nashville’s Rose is a storyteller and a song-crafter who is more interested in what’s being produced than how it helps her along the way.

 

Though much of her acclaimed debut Own Side Now was personally-inspired, what stood out most was its ability to paint a picture and tell a near-cinematic story, from the simultaneous last puffs of both cigarette and relationship, to the delightfully seedy characters pocketed in a coin-toss on the streets of New York City. With her follow-up, The Stand-In, Rose seems more interested in telling tales than spilling confessionals. “It feels more compelling to live through a song than it did having already lived it,” she says, The Stand-In is a journey down a road she’s always wanted to take: the path of the story-song. One track, “Pink Champagne,” inspired by a Joan Didion short essay, accounts for the desperate, short-lived passions of a Vegas wedding. The emotions stem from both protagonists, but are dissected and recounted by the watchful eye of the chapel or some honest observer from within. This collection of songs seems bent on investigating relationships from different perspectives; male and female, young and old, left and leaving, but they all tackle the bitter farewells, romantic misunderstandings and endless responsibilities in life. Using fibers of her fringe country roots and the bold musical capabilities of fellow producers/co-writers, Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle), The Stand-In seamlessly melds pedal steel guitar with restless pop beats, creating lush instrumentals that build on the more spare construction of Own Side Now. ”These songs are all based in sentiment. We wrote the stories to convey a feeling.” The result is infinitely more universal.

Introducing the World of Daryl Thetford

Presented by The Arts Company at The Arts Company

Daryl Thetford offers fresh perspectives to The Arts Company. He uses thousands of images he has captured from urban places such as crumbling walls, grafitti, signs, etc. He uses a collection of these images as an urban background for all of his finished pieces. His images come together through his layering of his own images. He creates narratives based on classical themes that are given new life in our urban culture. The resulting photographs are printed on aluminum in small editions and coated by his hand three times to protect and brighten the surfaces, again to reflect the effect of urban life as we know it. His finished photographs come across as narratives that are embedded in the images.

Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Wood Artists' Reception

Presented by Cumberland Gallery at Cumberland Gallery

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

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

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

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

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

The Nearly Deads w/ We Are The Finale, The Hollywood Kills & The House United

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Originally from Tampa, Florida, before relocating to the music mecca of Nashville three years ago, The Nearly Deads emit polished grit. Mixing the polished pop vocals of singer Theresa Jeane with the aggressive grunge-inspired instrumentals of Steve Tobi, Javier Garza, Josh Perrone, and Kevin Koelsch, the band has managed to create a truly unique genre that not only gives a nod to gritty grunge, but brings it back in a way never heard before.

The Hollywood Kills is a rock band from Nashville, TN. The love of Heavy riffs, rhythm & blues, and Motown helped create a sound all their own: Heavy, groovy, rock n roll.

Also performing: We Are The Finale & The House United

Slaves and Slaveholders of Wessyngton Plantation

Presented by Tennessee State Museum at Tennessee State Museum

The exhibit, Slaves and Slaveholders of Wessyngton Plantation, looks at the lives of both the enslaved African Americans and their white owners on the 13,000 acre plantation in Robertson County, Tennessee. The exhibition, which is free to the public, will open Feb. 11 and close Aug. 31, 2014.

Through first and third person accounts, the exhibit will reconstruct the lives of several enslaved people, giving them names, faces, and the details of what happened to them before, during, and after the Civil War.

Among the slaves profiled in the exhibit is Jenny Blow Washington.  The founder of Wessyngton Plantation, Joseph Washington, purchased 10-year-old Jenny and her sister from a Virginia planter in 1802.  The sisters traveled to Wessyngton Plantation in Tennessee with Washington, never to see their mother again.  Although slaves could not legally marry, Jenny had a lifelong relationship with a slave named Godfrey Washington and gave birth to at least nine children.  Jenny and her family performed the chores involved with maintaining the large Washington house.  Her known descendants number in the thousands.

A Creative Legacy: African American Arts in Tennessee

Presented by Tennessee State Museum at Tennessee State Museum

An exhibit containing rarely seen works by nationally acclaimed African American artists will go on exhibit at the Tennessee State Museum February 11. The exhibit, entitled A Creative Legacy: African American Arts in Tennessee, contains 46 works created by 16 artists who were born and/or worked in Tennessee including Aaron Douglas, Joseph and Beauford Delaney, William Edmondson, Bessie Harvey, and Greg Ridley.

All of the works shown in the exhibit are part of the collection of the Tennessee State Museum and have been assembled over the past 40 years. Due to limited space, the museum cannot display more than five percent of the collection at any given time. This exhibition, which is free to the public, will be on view in the museum’s Changing Galleries through August 31, 2014.

African Americans have contributed to the art of Tennessee from the beginning of our state’s history to present day.  They have crafted furniture, constructed buildings, sewn quilts, made pottery, and worked in all of the decorative and fine arts. Often in the past the contributions of African American artists were overlooked, but their vision and passion they paved the way for generations to follow.

Sinbad

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Actor and Comedian Sinbad arrived on the comedy scene with a “ hit’em in the face” style of comedy that has kept audiences laughing in the aisles for over the past two decades. He freely admits that he doesn’t knows any jokes, except for the ones that his dad told him “back in the day”. Sinbad tells stories, and boy does he tell stories! The basis of his humor comes from everyone he’s meets, everything he’s seen, and everything he’s done.
Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad has built a loyal following by taking audiences’ painful trials or embarassing tribulations of day-by-day life, throwing them back in their faces, and causing an uproar of comedic hysteria. He can also make it sound profound without being profane. Not that he’s any kind of choirboy, but by being the son of a preacher man he decided to keep his comedy clean after his father attended one of his early performances. Up to that time he had been what he describes himself as ”semi-dirty”. Sinbad says that he learned that night that “funny is funny”, and that masters of dirty comedy such as Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce could all work clean without losing a step.

Life On The Edge Of Catastrophe solo exhibition by Jeff Bertrand

Presented by 40AU at The Arcade at 40 AU (The Arcade)

Jeff Bertrand started this series of art by mere accident. In his down time as a barber, he doodles. One day he decided to spray hairspray as a fixative to an ink drawing and it bled. At first he was distressed…but then he saw the bleeding as a new piece of the drawing. And there it began. This series is entitled Life on the Edge of Catastrophe and contains a series of portraits replete with feelings of doomsday and grim feelings, people with their emotions and sadness completely on display. Some of the portraits are of people Bertrand knows, and these portraits tend to be full of hope and optimism for the future. Recently, Bertrand has taken his art to a new level by building wood boxes to paint on and even incorporating antlers from various animals, all giving his work a new life and dimension. Life on the Edge of Catastrophe will not only include his paintings displayed on wood. Bertrand plans on incorporating murals alongside these paintings and will even be doing one live as people are checking out the show. This way spectators can get a glimpse at what his process is like when creating his one of a kind portraits. The show debuts August 2 as part of the First Saturday Art Crawl and will be hanging in 40AU through August 31.

Puckett's Sunday Spotlight hosted by Marcus Whybrew ft. Maybe April

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

Tonight's feature artist(s) will be Maybe April

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

Our host, Puckett's own Marcus Whybrew, is a Southern boy originally from Jonesboro, Arkansas. Influenced by the classic sounds of Johnny Cash to the more contemporary vibe of Brad Paisley, Marcus has developed a sound that is truly unique and refreshing.

Out of Africa: Historic Tribal Art Collection

Presented by Tennessee State Museum at Tennessee State Museum

A collection of 56 important pieces of African tribal art and artifacts was recently donated to the Tennessee State Museum by William Darrell Moseley Tribal Arts Inc. A selection of the collection will be on view outside the Changing Galleries beginning August 1, in an exhibit entitled Out of Africa: Historic Tribal Art Collection.

Mosley is a Franklin, Tennessee, entrepreneur whose career in the pharmaceutical industry gave him the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the African continent for several decades. His passion for African tribal history and culture is reflected in the extensive collection he amassed during his travels.

“The museum is very honored to receive this important collection,” explained Executive Director Lois Riggins-Ezzell. “It a perfect time for us to put some of these pieces on public display because the popular exhibit,Slaves & Slaveholders of Wessyngton Plantation, looks at the lives of enslaved people who were brought to America from Africa by slave traders. The Tribal Art exhibit documents the how African tribal customs and culture passed down over generations have influenced modern-day culture. Our hope is that we will one day have the space to put the entire collection on view for our visitors.”

The exhibit, Out of Africa: Historic Tribal Art Collection is free to the public and will be on view through Sunday, August 31.

SOLD OUT Martina McBride

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

SOLD OUT 

Nashville Sunday Night presented by Lightning 100 featuring Martina McBride

What Martina McBride intended her latest album to be was a simple gift, but what she wound up with is a timeless treasure.

The multi-million selling vocalist gathered a group of enduring musical chestnuts and assembled a small band to record them live in the studio. The result, a collection titled Everlasting, is a stunning listening experience, with McBride finding fresh nuances in familiar lyrics and working within beautifully crafted new arrangements of cherished melodies.

She breathes new life into ballads like “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” and “Do Right Woman” by digging into the deeper meaning of their messages. McBride is equally refreshing on such tempo tunes as “Wild Night” and “Suspicious Minds.”

Motown gets some new twists in her versions of “Come See About Me” and “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted.” The 1967 Linda Ronstadt ballad “Little Bit of Rain” becomes a standout moment on McBride’s new record. So is the reworking of the 1966 Etta James/Sugar Pie DeSanto romp “In the Basement,” where McBride is joined by pop star Kelly Clarkson. Soulful Gavin DeGraw is her duet partner on the revival of the 1962 Sam Cooke classic “Bring It on Home to Me.”

Everlasting is a departure for Martina McBride in several respects. The pop repertoire and her blue-eyed soul musical approach are certainly new for her. This is also the first collection on her own label. And it marks her first album collaboration with superstar producer Don Was, famed for his work with The Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Bette Midler, Carly Simon, The B-52s, Ringo Starr and more.

Martina McBride has been awarded 14 Gold Records, nine Platinum honors, three Double Platinum Records and two Triple Platinum awards and been recognized for selling over 18 million units. The Country Music Association has named her its Female Vocalist of the Year four times. The Academy of Country Music has presented her with its Top Female honor three times. The Recording Academy has nominated her for 14 Grammy Awards.

The release of Everlasting comes during a time of several other career highlights for her. During the first weeks of 2014, Martina performed at all-star salutes to Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame members Greg Allman and Carole King and was a presenter at the Grammy Awards. She joins Country Music Hall of Fame member George Strait on his farewell tour in the spring. She also has her first book, published by Harper Collins and titled Around The Table, due out this fall. It is a book about entertaining at home complete with recipes, decorating tips, and personal stories, and highlights her passion for food and celebrating life with friends and family.

Harpeth Rising

Presented by GRAYS On Main at GRAYS on Main

Since their formation in 2009, Harpeth Rising has been building a reputation by breaking down musical boundaries with violin, banjo, cello, foot percussion, and powerful, three-part vocals. The classically trained group released their fourth album, 'Tales From Jackson Bridge,' in October of 2013, which reached No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts the same month and No. 15 on the EuroAmericana Charts the following March. While the album remains true to Harpeth Rising's folk, bluegrass, and classical roots throughout, it expands on their blues, Latin, and rock influences and adds in some new flavors such as Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz. The album has been named on the Americana Radio Top Five Most Added List, the Roots Music Report's Top Forty, Alternate Root's Top Ten Songs of the Week, and Amazon's Top Twenty Hot New Releases in Roots Rock.

Maira Kalman: The Elements of Style

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

This exhibition features paintings on paper by Maira Kalman that were used to illustrate a 2007 re-publication of the authoritative American English writing style guide The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White. Kalman’s illustrations whimsically embody the didactic examples of grammar rules and their breakage provided by this essential text for writers. Phrases like “But animals do not comprise (‘embrace’) a zoo—they constitute a zoo” and “None of us is perfect” inspired Kalman’s visual witticisms. Her use of flattened space, strong colors and childlike figures provide an enjoyable lesson in both literary and visual literacy.

Watch Me Move: The Animation Show

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

In 1911, American cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay prefaced his short film Little Nemo with the invitation to “Watch Me Move,” introducing a cast of colorful characters in a playful promenade. This exhibition uses these same words to invite visitors to a celebration of animation. Watch Me Move is the most extensive exhibition ever mounted to present the full range of animated imagery produced in the last 150 years. Presenting animation as a highly influential force in the development of global visual culture, the exhibition explores the relationship between animation and film.

Cutting across generations and cultures, Watch Me Move features over 100 works, from iconic clips to lesser-known masterpieces. It brings together industry pioneers, independent film-makers and contemporary artists including Étienne-Jules Marey, Harry Smith, Jan Švankmajer, William Kentridge and Nathalie Djurberg alongside the creative output of commercial studios such as Walt Disney, Aardman, Studio Ghibli and Pixar.

Vox Grata was founded by Artistic Director, Jeanette MacCallum in 2012.  The ensemble performed its inaugural concert to a standing ovation audience in January 2013.  Since that time, the choir has completed two successful seasons.  The choir comprised of women who, out of gratitude for the fullness of their own lives, possess a desire to sing together for the benefit of others.  The group performs repertoire that expresses a uniquely feminine spirit, especially works that promote the best interests of women in society.  All concert programs directly benefit the needs of women in the Nashville area.  Concerts during the first two seasons benefitted Better Decisions, Thistle Farms, Mending Hearts and the YWCA Weaver Domestic Violence Shelter.

Vox Grata performs challenging classical choral repertoire and auditions are limited to singers with significant choral experience.  A number of Vox Grata members sings in 2 to 3 ensembles in the Nashville area, and many study voice privately.  Women requesting audition appointments will be asked to list their previous choral experience.  Information about the audition process can be found at www.voxgrata.com.  An audition request form can be submitted directly from the website or by e-mailing voxgratainfo@gmail.com.

Keep On Movin'

Presented by The 5 Spot at The 5 Spot

Famous in Nashville as simply “The Monday Night Dance Party,” KEEP ON MOVIN! is the wildly  successful weekly rock and soul dance party presented by ELECTRIC WESTERN.  Now in their fourth year, DJs JACOB JONES and RENO BO spin a hand-selected mix of the most danceable popular and obscure 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll, Soul, old school R&B, Stax, Motown, Girl  Groups, Doo Wop, Funk and Garage every Monday night. Their slogan “Monday Is The New Friday”  holds true each week as the masses converge upon the hip east Nashville neighborhood, pack into rock club The 5 Spot and ready themselves for an evening of dancing, drinking and fun. The drinks flow for hours and the sweat pours off the crowd.

KEEP ON MOVIN! was named “The most stylish party in America” in the April 2012 Style Bible issue of GQ Magazine. College kids, baby boomers and everyone in between understand why this party is THE party in town.  The rhythmic sounds of Otis Redding, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Temptations, Aretha  Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, James Brown and more keep the  crowds in dance hall bliss while the evening’s pied pipers Jones and Bo instigate and officiate the festivities.

Guest DJs have included Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Brendan Benson, Diane Birch,  Eli “Paperboy” Reed and Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, Oblivians). Local and national celebrities  like Ke$ha, Jared Followill (Kings Of Leon), Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) Taylor Hanson (Hanson), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne), Mat Kearney and
legendary tailor and suit-maker to the stars Manuel have shown up to find out what all the fuss is about.

The faithful show up each week right at ten when the needle drops and stay until the bartenders scream “last call!” hoping to get the dancing masses out of the club so that they can go home for some much needed and well-deserved sleep. That is, until next Monday rolls around.

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.

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.

Gateway Chamber Orchestra Announces 2014-2015 Season

Presented by Gateway Chamber Orchestra at Various Venues

Middle Tennessee’s own world-class Gateway Chamber Orchestra will take you on A Voyage in Versatility for the 2014-2015 season, exploring the vast scope of music performed by this chamber orchestra. Journey from the intimacy of Berio’s Folk Songs, with the luminous voice of Teresa Buchholz, to the grandeur of Mendelssohn’s majestic Scottish Symphony. Soar from the grace of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, with internationally acclaimed soloist Charles Neidich, to the jubilation of Theofanidis’ modern Visions and Miracles. Sail through the musical odyssey of Season V: A Voyage in Versatility, with new and unexpected adventures in every concert.

To bring the highest quality of classical music, rediscovered musical gems, and contemporary American sounds, the multi-talented group of professional musicians, led by Music Director Gregory Wolynec, transcends boundaries, adapting for each piece of music. The ensemble transforms from a string orchestra to a large orchestra and converts from a chamber ensemble into a wind orchestra, always bringing a fresh interpretation and a distinct sound to each and every note!

"Middle Tennessee is among the most musically vibrant communities in the country and we are proud to add our unique voice! Our diverse programming approach brings together three things: established masterworks like symphonies by Mozart or Beethoven; overlooked treasures and contemporary American works. GCO is already on the international scene through its release of 'Wind Serenades' and 'Chamber Symphonies' on the Summit label and has received glowing reviews in the American Record Guide, Fanfare, ArkivMusic and ArtsNash among others," says Gateway Chamber Orchestra Music Director Gregory Wolynec.

"In addition to our season concerts, Gateway Chamber Orchestra will perform free concerts and provide educational outreach for nearly 5,000 students in the Middle Tennessee community. Bringing the phenomenal players of GCO together for such interesting programs in an environment of shared collaboration is very rewarding. As a conductor, it is gratifying to hear audience members and critics alike talk about how much FUN the group looks like it's having, as the Orchestra presents world-class concerts and innovative educational activities. It is inspiring for the members of this organization to connect with new audiences that are so engaged and excited about the music we are offering."

The 2014-15 Masterworks Subscription Series

GCO presents the best of classical masterworks of the past and present, offering four series concerts, two family concerts (one in November and the second in April), as well as “Winter Baroque,” a special holiday event on Sunday, December 7, 2014.

The Clarksville Sunday matinees will be performed in the acoustically splendid Austin Peay University Mabry Concert Hall and the Nashville Monday night concerts will be hosted downtown in two historic and visually stunning venues; the Downtown Presbyterian Church and the Masonic Grand Lodge of Tennessee, for the convenience of the expanding Nashville audience.

Megan Moreaux CD Release

Presented by Music City Tippler at Music City Tippler

Recorded in the Famous Blackbird Studio, Singer/Songwriter Megan Moreaux will release her first EP, Praying for Rain, on September 2nd with a free show in Nashville at the Music City Tippler at 7:30pm. Featuring such artists as Carolyn Dawn Johnson and Steve Lester, this County Album has a soulful core that will transport you to a time when country music was more than just beers and trucks.

Megan Moreaux is a California country girl. Born in Monterey, California, Megan found country music as an escape from her traumatic childhood. A Mom who left her at an early age and a father who sold drugs for a living, Megan found solace with her Aunt who introduced her to country music. As Megan began to focus on her music she met the Drew Davis band, who recognized her talent and took her under their wings. After troubles in California made it clear she had to leave, she moved to Nashville full time where she is wowing crowds at shows with her amazing vocal range and continuing to write with some of the Industries top writers. Including Jennifer Adan, Mitch Allen, Kritsti Osmunson from Bomshel, Johnny Garcia, Will Rambeaux, Drew Davis, Karleen Watt, Beau Fuller, Monica Spendlove, Dan Franklin, Jaeson Ma, and numerous others.

Megan Moreaux will be opening up for Martina McBride this September.

Chandler Marie

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

I grew up in Lake Mary, Fl with fourteen siblings I didn't always have fourteen siblings but my family grew over time as my parents started adopting more and more. I am one of the two biological children in my family the other is my younger brother. Growing up with that many siblings definitely builds character. :) I started singing when I was four years old in the church I went to singing has always been something I enjoyed and something I felt like I could escape to when nothing else was going right I would just blast the music and sing at the top of my lungs. I remember my parents would coach me in the kitchen as a little girl, we would come home from church and I would just walk around the house singing and my parents would stop me and say do this or do that. Every little kid dreams of being something when they are young and mine was always to be a singer. Now I have the privilege of living in nashville and doing what I love everyday. Please Join me in the journey!

Clark Hill

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

Since the humble beginning of Clark Hill their music has continued to grow, while the twenty acres where family mix on a daily basis known as the “Hill”, has remained the same.

Music has, and will always remain the center of life for this group of guys and their families. Things have progressed as they have taken their high intensity but sometimes intimate show on the road. Tour buses, bright lights and big crowds haven’t changed these guys and it’s obvious that they would like to keep it that way.

Being from North Florida they bleed Southern Rock and growing up with that heartfelt genre has allowed them to infuse those elements into their version of mainstream current day “Country Music.”

With writings of “Those Were the Days” and “Papas Song” you can feel the gospel roots pumping through the heart as Lead Singer Jimmie Clark is often found singing through tears. Ripping guitar solos with an unmistakable tone generated by the fingers of Lead Guitarist Michael Calderin in almost every song. Never being bigger than the moment itself you will find Bass Guitarist Bennie Clifton with eyes closed, a smile on his face and the dancing that comes with feeling every note played. And holding down the groove and driving these guys to the climax of every song is the maturity and dynamics of a seasoned Drummer, Billy Baker.

When put together you have a tight, organic sound they like to call, Country with a Twist. From “Pecan Pie” to “4X4” from “Lake Day” to “Country Cruisin” from a Skynyrd cover to “The Compound” you will find the stories of Country Music that you have lived before, in a sound that you will never forget.

As these guys continue to grow both spiritually and physically they have found a self reflective path, where the music meets the soul and they want you to share this experience with them. Once you leave a Clark Hill show you are not a fan… you are FAMILY.

The Eric Hamilton Band

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

Beginning in a small pizza joint in an alley off Music Row, the duo of Eric Hamilton & J. W. Younger, along with six strings and a Pringles can full of dried rice and beans, quickly grew into the EHB - a rockin', juke-jumping, raucous good-time band with Jake "The Snake" Byers on Bass, Sweepy Walker on Harmonica, Jeff Armstrong on Keys & Guinness Book World Record Holder, Boo Boo McAfee on drums. The group quickly gathered the attention of Nashville record execs, and soon lines of crowds were gathering around local listening rooms for their afternoon industry showcases. After signing with Curb Records, the band toured the entire United States hitting all 50 States in 50 Days on the "Handful of Dirt Tour" ending with a final concert in Washington, D.C. on day 51. With only a few hiatuses during the years, the original band was active until 2001. At present, Eric Hamilton, Sweepy Walker, and Jake "The Snake" Byers are the remaining three original members.

Civil War Lecture Series: Union General Occupies Belmont Mansion

Presented by Belmont Mansion at Belmont Mansion

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

On Tuesday, September 2nd Dan Lee will lecture on Union General Thomas J. Wood. His book, Thomas J. Wood: A Biography of the Union General in the Civil War published by McFarland Publishers, is the first full length biography of Wood. Lee will discuss Wood’s military career from his graduating fifth in the 1846 West Point class along with the mistakes he made leading up to the Battle of Nashville. Wood is well known for a notorious lapse of judgment resulting in a Confederate breakthrough at Chickamauga that shattered the Union right flank and threatened the survival of the Army of the Cumberland. It is a moment in the war still argued about. Wood learned from his mistake, became a better general from that time on (notably at Missionary Ridge and Nashville), and redeemed himself in the eyes of his fellow officers and his civilian superiors. Dan has degrees in history from Murray State University and Western Kentucky University. He lives in Hardin County, Kentucky.

Rachel Pearl and Erika Chambers Open Mic Night & Acoustic Hour

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Rachel Pearl's Open Mic Night and Erika Chamber's Acoustic Hour.

Rachel Pearl hails from Bowling Green, KY where she grew up with music. Her mother is a popular blues singer from that area and her great Uncle Bill has played at Woodstock and made music all over the world. She moved to the Nashville area in 2000 to learn more about herself and music. She travels the US with her ukulele and guitar singing original jazzy tunes, Top 40 hits, and jazz standards. -Facebook Bio

Per Erika Chambers' ReverbNation page "I write songs in the quiet of my own mind. I may be in the car, at work, in the shower or in bed, but it’s always private. personal. I’m inspired by old hymns and mountain songs, my great grandmother, a special needs child, a suicide, a news story, my time in Africa, a guitar lick, maybe even an old flame. Most recently, my songs have been birthed from the loss of my sister. Regardless of the inspiration, I am always amazed when my music reaches into the heart of a stranger and stirs something. I hope it stirs something in you. Peace. Erika"

Live Music

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.

The Jack Pearson Band

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

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

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

Each broadcast will feature 4-5 artists in 20 minute segments and short interviews, and also encourages collaboration with a nightly Loveless Jam where all musical guests embrace the spirit of Music City as the collaborative epicenter of tradition and innovation. Nashville’s legendary Keith Bilbrey is the announcer; Jim Lauderdale and other leaders of the music community host the festivities.

This week will feature performances by Seth Walker, Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys, Andrew Peterson, The Whistle and Bells.

Forget Cassettes w/ Scale Model & QDP

Presented by Vote No on One at The 5 Spot

On November 4th, Tennessee voters will be asked to vote on Amendment 1. An amendment that, if passed, will give Politicians the power to make personal health care decisions for women and families across the state of Tennessee. It will provide the legislature with unbridled power to enact medically unnecessary laws, restricting access to safe abortion services and stripping away the rights of a woman to make her own, personal health care decisions.

Join us on September 4 at The 5 Spot for a night of awareness, music, and dancing. Forget Cassettes and Scale Model will be playing sets starting at 9:00pm, followed by a fantastic QDP dance party.

Ernie Ashworth: Trembling Lips

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

A #1 hit for Ernie Ashworth in 1963, “Talk Back Trembling Lips” became his signature song and a country music standard. In the wake of the record’s success, the Huntsville, Alabama, native was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry in 1964. Written by John D. Loudermilk, “Talk Back Trembling Lips” inspired Ashworth to perform for the rest of his career in colorful stage costumes that symbolized the song’s memorable title.

Ashworth, who earlier achieved success as a songwriter for Acuff-Rose Publications, continued to place records on the charts until 1970. He performed at the Opry for many years and remained active as a recording artist until his death in 2009.

Enjoy some of his trademark personal possessions in this new spotlight exhibition.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

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.

James King Fundraiser

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

In 1988, King released his first record under his own name, James King Sings Cold, Cold World. In the 1990s, Dudley Connell of the Johnson Mountain Boys brought King to the attention of Rounder's Ken Irwin. Irwin brought together Connell and a band of bluegrass all-stars to back up King on 1994's These Old Pictures and 1995's Lonesome and Then Some. King began to tour steadily, gradually assembling the James King Band. The group was named emerging artists of the year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in 1997. 1998's Bed by the Window was the recording debut of the James King Band, and its gripping, bittersweet title track -- about a man in a nursing home with a vivid imagination -- was nominated for IBMA's 1999 song of the year award. King is also a member of the bluegrass supergroup Longview, along with Connell, Don Rigsby, Joe Mullins, Glen Duncan and Marshall Wilborn. Their self-titled 1997 debut was named recorded event of the year by the IBMA. The second Longview album, High Lonesome, arrived in 1999, followed by Lessons in Stone in 2002. King released 30 Years of Farming in 2002. The album featured the James King Band as the supporting instrumentalists, with a potent blend of classic bluegrass, hard core country and contemporary song craft. Including the country classics "Saginaw, Michigan" and "Carroll Country Accident," King released The Bluegrass Storyteller in 2005. In April 2009, James married Julie Lillard of Cascade, Virginia, and now resides in Danville, Virginia.

Carla Jean Whitley book signing

Presented by Parnassus Books at Parnassus Books

Carla Jean Whitley will sign copies of "Muscle Shoals Sound Studio: How the Swampers Changed American Music." An estimated four hundred gold records have been recorded in the Muscle Shoals area. Many of those are thanks to Muscle Shoals Sound Studio and the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, dubbed “the Swampers.” Some of the greatest names in rock, R&B and blues laid tracks in the original, iconic concrete-block building—the likes of Cher, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Rolling Stones and the Black Keys. The National Register of Historic Places now recognizes that building, where Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded the original version of “Free Bird” and the Rolling Stones wrote “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses.” By combing through decades of articles and music reviews related to Muscle Shoals Sound, music writer Carla Jean Whitley reconstructs the fascinating history of how the Alabama studio created a sound that reverberates across generations.

Carla Jean Whitley is a writer, editor and teacher based in Birmingham, Alabama, where she is managing editor of Birmingham magazine. Carla Jean founded the music blog Birmingham Box Set, and has also written for BookPage, Paste, The Birmingham News, Sky and a variety of other magazines and newspapers. Carla Jean volunteers with literacy organizations and teaches journalism at the University of Alabama and Samford University. Her favorite yoga pose is bakasana and her favorite cats are orange.

Sheryll Cashin speaks on Affirmative Action

Presented by Vanderbilt University at Vanderbilt University - Sarratt Cinema

Georgetown University law professor and Vanderbilt alumna Sheryll Cashin pushes for a fresh approach to affirmative action in her new book Place, Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America. Cashin will discuss her book at Vanderbilt University Sept. 4 in the first Chancellor’s Lecture of the 2014-15 academic year.

Cashin will speak from 5:30pm to 6:30pm Thursday, Sept. 4, in Sarratt Cinema. A reception and book signing will precede the lecture from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Sarratt Cinema Lobby. Both events are free and open to the public, with seating for the lecture limited and available on a first-come, first seated basis.

In Place, Not Race, Cashin contends that race-conscious affirmative action, which is designed to help underrepresented minorities gain admission to highly selective colleges and universities, is currently doing little to help the truly disadvantaged in American society. Instead, it primarily benefits advantaged minority students.

Cashin advocates for a form of affirmative action based on structural disadvantage, or place, that a student must overcome to attain higher education. Examples of structural disadvantage include underresourced schools with less-experienced teachers, fewer high-achieving peers that raise expectations and model habits of success, and often, exposure to violence. Affirmative action based on place, not race, would provide a race-neutral approach for helping disadvantaged students, she says.

Cashin, the daughter of civil rights activists, was raised in Huntsville, Alabama, and graduated from Vanderbilt in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. While a student, she helped found Vanderbilt’s Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center and Association of Vanderbilt Black Alumni, both of which are celebrating 30th anniversaries in 2014.

She went on to earn her master’s degree in English law from Oxford University and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. Cashin clerked for the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall as well as Abner J. Mikva, retired chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She worked for the Clinton administration, developing policies for inner cities. She currently is professor of law at Georgetown University, where she teaches Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, and Race and American Law, among other subjects.

Place, Not Race is her third book. Other works include The Agitator’s Daughter: A Memoir of Four Generations of One Extraordinary African American Family and The Failures Of Integration: How Race and Class Are Undermining the American Dream.

Parking for the Sept. 4 event will be available in the Terrace Place Garage, located at 21st Avenue South and Terrace Place.

Calvary

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

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

Rock, Paper, Plastic

Presented by Ground Floor Gallery at Ground Floor Gallery

Rock, Paper, Plastic opens September 4, 5:00pm-8:00pm with a reception for solo artist, Heidi Martin Kuster.

"My work extends from an interest in time’s passage as evidenced in geological material. Directly inspired by rocks, my paintings reference specific marks found in the surface of stone. My large oil compositions focus on hyper-magnified pebbles, and my smaller gouache pieces deconstruct geological forms, and create the feel of aerial photography. I paint on canvas, wood, and handmade paper. My brush marks are responsive to these materials. I sometimes integrate plastic labels into my collage work, as subtle notations of the inevitable human impact on Earth’s evolution. My paintings tell the not-often-told history of the world found in the chosen stones that make their way into the palm of my hand." - Heidi Martin Kuster

Heidi Martin Kuster exhibits her work here in the United States and in Europe. After living in Barcelona and Paris for the last ten years, she now resides in Nashville, Tennessee, where she works at Ground Floor Gallery + Studios in the Chestnut Square Building. Her work is in private collections throughout the world.

That burden makes him funny.” - Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal.” Over the course of a weekend in February 2011, Doug Stanhope called Chad Riden “wicked funny” once, “fucking brilliant” twice, and “stupid” only one time. “His observations on the domestic sphere teeter amiably on the edge.” – The Nashville Scene

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

Parachute - All Ages Show

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Mixing full-throttle rock with dollops of blue-eyed soul, vintage R&B and melodic pop radio anthems in-the-making, Parachute has arrived. With roots in Charlottesville, VA, the five members of Parachute have been friends for years and have developed a sound that is all their own. Will has been playing with drummer Johnny Stubblefield, bassist Alex Hargrave and saxophone/keyboardist Kit French since they were classmates in high school almost seven years ago. Will met Nate while attending University of Virginia together, and the guitarist joined the band three years ago. The unmistakable energy on stage is a result of their friendship, and it has helped them to find many successes within their mixed genre. 

Parachute’s debut album Losing Sleep was released on Mercury Records (IDJ) in May, 2009, and has sold over 100,000 copies. The album went to #1 on the iTunes and Amazon charts, and reached #39 on the Billboard Top200. In conjunction with the release, their second single “Under Control” was released as the iTunes Free Single of the Week and went on to be one of the most downloaded releases of all times with over 600,000 downloads that week. In winter 2009, the band released a holiday EP titled Winterlove which has sold over 16,000 units.

Although the band has found many successes in their studio release, their major achievements can be found on the road. In 2009, Parachute played approximately 175 shows including headlining dates and support slots for band such as Switchfoot, O.A.R., Three Doors Down and Secondhand Serenade. In November 2009, the band took off on a national tour as support for American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s “All I Ever Wanted” Tour, which included dates in Canada. The tour was so successful, that Parachute was invited to tour with Kelly on the international leg of her tour in 2010. Other major touring opportunities in 2010 have included a co-headlining tour with Safetysuit in January (with sold out shows in New York, Boston, Minneapolis, and St. Louis, a headlining run in the UK, and an appearance on VH1’s Best Cruise Ever in April.

Since their major label debut, the band has performed live on Good Morning America (ABC), The Early Show, (CBS) and Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC). Additionally, they have had songs placed on The City (MTV), One Tree Hill (CW), Vampire Diaries (CW), and 90210 (CW). Their first single, “She Is Love”, was part of a major television campaign with Nivea Skincare, and was followed up by the company with a second campaign featuring the band’s second single “Under Control”.

This summer, the band has spent the majority of their time in Los Angeles with producer John Fields working on their new album. They will play 18 dates in their headlining tour this fall, including shows in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, and two private college dates.

The Piano Guys

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made over 35 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that has brought them to their major label debut album, "The Piano Guys," released on Sony Masterworks on October 2nd, 2012.

But just who are The Piano Guys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other two - Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek - are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys’ name comes from Anderson’s piano store in St. George, Utah, which was called The Piano Guys. Looking for an alternative to low-yield conventional advertising, Anderson devised a Facebook promotional page and YouTube channel featuring the most famous pianist he could find – local pianist, Jon Schmidt. A self-described “New Age Classical” player, Schmidt was indeed well-established locally, thanks to eight albums and seven piano books of his song transcriptions. He also performed concerts throughout Utah, one of which featured a young guest artist, Steven Sharp Nelson, who adventurously combined traditional cello playing with percussion effects. “I was 15 when I met Jon and started playing with him,” Nelson recalls. “I had to get a ride to shows! But we’ve had a great brotherhood that’s now lasted 20 years.”

Extreme Vices

Presented by BDC Entertainment Network

A local favorite, Johnny Dellarocca is known for his interactive swing magic featuring music and magic accompanied by The Bombshell Kittens. His style is often described as “Dieselpunk,” a fusion of vintage jazz age and contemporary styles. This show, Extreme Vices focuses on his more “extreme” magic and sideshow stunts involving fire, razor blades, animal traps, knives, gambling, cards and of course, cigars. “For years I’ve been doing this material in clubs and bars, in close-up venues, mostly as a supplement to my more colorful stage work,” says Dellarocca. “This show is a chance to focus exclusively on that material that appeals to a more grown-up and sophisticated audience.” Extreme Vices is one of the first events hosted by the newly re-branded Battlefield Smokes & Spirits. It’s something unlike anything that has appeared in the area, and one that Dellarocca hopes will become a regular offering. “Best of all” says Dellarocca, “there is no cover, so audiences can enjoy a great night of entertainment without breaking the bank!” Much like the tag-line suggests, “…’cause life don’t get any better than this!” Battlefield Smokes & Spirits offers Middle TN’s bet selection of high end cigars, high gravity beers, and designer spirits.

Betraying Brown: How the School-to-Prison Pipeline Denies Opportunity to Children of Color

Presented by American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee at Nashville Public Library - Main Library

"BETRAYING BROWN: How the School-to-Prison Pipeline Denies Opportunity to Children of Color," is a free, public discussion of the “school-to-prison pipeline,” the policies and practices that push our schoolchildren out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

Dennis Parker, Director of ACLU National's Racial Justice Project, will engage policymakers, educators, students and members of the public on the reasons for the pipeline’s rising presence in American schools, and its effect on the ability of students, especially children of color, to break out of a cycle that prioritizes incarceration over education.

The discussion will highlight how the school-to-prison pipeline closes the doors of opportunity that were promised to students of color and their classmates in the landmark Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education, and will explore how educators and community members can act as advocates on behalf of students impacted by the pipeline.

Taste of Tennessee Festival

Presented by Tennessee State Fair at Fairgrounds Speedway

Tennessee’s craft beer and spirits industries are booming and this year’s Taste of Tennessee Festival will reflect that growth with growth of its own.

Opening weekend at the Tennessee State Fair will provide again this year an opportunity for fairgoers to taste the best of Tennessee except this year the special tasting events will include much more than a variety of locally brewed ales and lagers.

Introduced at last year’s Fair as a one night event, the Taste of Tennessee was received with such success that organizers made the decision this year to extend the special exhibition to a whole weekend and to include far more examples of what the Volunteer state has to offer.

According to Cary Ann Fuller, who heads the Taste of Tennessee for the State Fair, this year’s event will again include a Craft Brewers Fest on Opening night (Sept. 5) hosted by Kay Bob’s Grill and Ale, and an Artisan Distillers Fest on Saturday night (Sept. 6) presented by the Artisan on 18th. She said the weekend extravaganza will also include the Music City Cookoff, a World Food Championship Regional Qualifier event, as well as the Tenne-Flea Market, the Inaugural Southern Gentlemen Facial Hair Competition and a TN Better Beer Garden. BeardForce Films will be at each of the three events with an exclusive screening of the award-winning short film, “Straight Up: Tennessee Whiskey.”

Fuller said some 35 craft brewers from all across Tennessee will be offering more than 100 different beers for those attending on Friday, while on Saturday 25 artisan distillers will provide a tasting of Tennessee whiskey, gin, rum, rye, vodka and moonshine. “Nearly every brewer and distiller in the state will participate over the course of the weekend.” Local music by the Listening Room Cafe will accompany both tasting events as well as an assortment of Tennessee’s finest Food Trucks, including Memphis’ Fresh Gulf Seafood and several Nashville favorites.

She explained that the Music City Cookoff, presented by Goo Goo Clusters, is a multi-category live cooking competition designed to bring cooks and chefs from across the country looking to win cash prizes and qualify to compete in the World Food Championships in Las Vegas this November. The WFC premiered as a television series in July on the FYI network. The event at the State Fair is expected to be taped and shown as a part of the second season programming next year. Competition registration is now open and categories include dessert, seafood and cheese!

The Tenne-Flea Market she said will provide an opportunity for fairgoers to purchase a variety of handmade goods and artisan products and designs from Tennessee vendors including food products, craft items, artwork, Tennessee authors and more. Vendor applications can me made on the website.

“These events, no doubt, will add to an amazing opening weekend for the State Fair and provide opportunities to taste and meet not only Tennessee’s heritage but also its future,” Fuller said.

The cost of admission to each tasting event, which opens each night at 7 pm, includes admission to the State Fair, a souvenir tasting glass, samples of either craft beers or artisan spirits and a donation to the Tennessee Craft Brewers or Distillers Guilds. Admission for designated drivers will be available. General admission tickets for each event are $45, and special SIP tickets are available for $65. SIP tickets allow guests to enter one hour earlier than the public with the opportunity to sample special offerings while visiting with the makers.

Admission to the Tenne-Flea Market, Beard and Mustache competition, and World Food Competition event on Saturday is free with an admission ticket to the State Fair. Gates for these events open at 10 am.

“Taste of Tennessee is all Tennessee, all the time. No other festival gives you all that Tennessee has to offer in one venue,” Fuller said.

Tickets for events go on sale July 25. For more information about these events, participating brewers and distillers and the Tennessee State Fair, visit www.tasteofTN.com.

Andy Warhol’s Flowers

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

Fifty years ago, during the summer of 1964, Andy Warhol began working on silkscreen paintings of Flowers, a subject that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life. When Warhol had his first solo exhibition at the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery in New York in November 1964 it consisted entirely of Flowers. Best known for his vibrant pop imagery and searing commentary on art and popular culture, Warhol’s flower imagery reveals a softer, more intimate side of the artist. In retrospect, it is also a provocative series, appropriating a powerful symbol later identified with flower-power counterculture of the 1960s, the age of peace, love, and anti-war protest. The Flowers are the only subject that Warhol revisited throughout his entire career and in almost every medium. The artist’s floral imagery is among the quietest, most beautiful, and least studied. The Cheekwood exhibition is a rare occasion when Warhol’s artificial flower images meet the floral abundance of an actual garden.

This exhibition traces Warhol’s engagement with floral images throughout his career, beginning with a group of his earliest commercial illustrations, drawn in the 1950s, and his creation of the Flowers series in 1964, to photographs, paintings, and screen prints through 1986 before his untimely death the following year. The development of Warhol’s career can be seen in the progression from the delicacy of the early illustrations to the boldness of the 1964 series to the tension between the beauty and banality of the photographs and prints late in his career.
 

Andy Warhol’s Flowers exemplifies the nature of pop art, where something commonplace – like a flower – is transformed into art. Exhibition highlights include Warhol’s audacious floral proposal for the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington, as well as paintings, studio photographs, and almost a dozen screen prints from his vibrant Flowers series based on the photograph of hibiscus flowers by Patricia Caulfield.

Presented by Customs House Museum and Cultural Center - Clarksville at Customs House Museum and Cultural Center - Clarksville

The Customs House Museum is featuring the collage art of award-winning artist Anne Bagby in the exhibit Layered Expressions.  Combining layers of glaze over layers of patterns and images, Anne Bagby creates quilt-like visions, stitching together patterns of bold colors that often feature the human face and words.  There is a nostalgic feel to the modern pieces of art.  The end result is a lyrical piece of textures that leaves the viewer witha sense of familiarity.  

A resident of Tennessee, Anne studied at the University of North Carolina and Queens Collage in Charlotte.  Her work has been published in New American Painting, Watercolor Magazine, Artist Magazine and Somerset Studio Magazine.  

Bagby's work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. including Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, Nashville, and the U.S. State Department's Art in Embassies.  She has been teaching workshops since 2004; and has produced an instructional DVD of her process.

Nashville Sunday Night | Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds

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

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is a seven-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re all focused on delivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive.

The band has earned a reputation as a true road-warrior. Since they started touring in 2011, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds has played 150 shows each year all across the US (45 states so far) and Canada. Along the way, they’ve racked up a formable list of festival appearances, including Bonnaroo, Firefly, Mountain Jam, Voodoo Experience, Bear Creek, Gathering of the Vibes, Telluride Jazz, and late night sets at Austin City Limits and Jazz Fest in New Orleans. They’ve also shared the stage with Donald Fagen (Steely Dan) and Warren Haynes at a Midnight Ramble at Levon Helm’s Studio, played with Gov’t Mule at the Beacon Theatre in New York, and opened for a long list of tremendous acts like The Avett Brothers, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Dr. John, Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, JJ Grey and Mofro, moe., Soulive, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and the Funky Meters. Equally at home in the studio as they are onstage, their EP Fight (2013) was produced by Grammy award-winner and former American Idol Judge Randy Jackson.

The band is building a following the old-fashioned way – and the demand for their infectious music has kept them on a relentless tour schedule across the country. Fueled by the band’s boundless energy, every show turns into a wild dance party, and the Dirty Birds are establishing a rabid following of fans eager to receive a potent dose of good times, delivered by the band night after night.

Sister Sparrow’s commanding style alone is more than enough to dazzle audiences, but the magic doesn’t end with her: the band’s palpable camaraderie, undeniable talent and passion for music makes for a contagious combination that is taking the country by storm. Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds’ blend of seductive soul and dirty blues-rock reminds audiences why they love live music.

The end is where we start from.”

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

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

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

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: Charlie Worsham, Del McCoury Band, Scotty McCreery, The Willis Clan, Moe Bandy and more to be added.

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

How To Dress Well

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

How To Dress Well is the stage name of songwriter and producer Tom Krell. Krell’s burgeoning career began in 2009 when, having just moved from Brooklyn to Berlin, his songs began to emerge online via a hugely prolific string of free, digital EPs posted in anonymity on his blog. Combining a gorgeous falsetto with fractured R&B-influenced beats, an instinctive ear for subtly devastating melody and elements of noise, sound collage and avant-garde composition, Krell’s debut album Love Remains offered a beautiful window into a startlingly realised artistic imagination.

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

Rod Man

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Comedian Rod Man is truly a gem in the World of Standup Comedy today. Gifted with a unique delivery, his voice captures audiences' attention immediately. Throw in his laid back style, that southern charm and wit and the ability to find the funny in everyday life, and you have the ingredients for a future Comedy Star in the making. Rod Man got hooked on comedy watching Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam, where he saw the likes of Martin Lawrence, Chris Tucker, and the late, great Bernie Mac perform. It was then he knew what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. "Watching comedy made me feel good, so I figured why not try to be the one making other people feel good. So he signed up for open mic nights at Atlanta's Uptown Comedy Club, hosted by the hilarious Earthquake. "Uptown was the place to be on Tuesday nights. The place was packed. You never knew who would stop in and do a guest spot. And you never really knew when you were going to hit the stage, because the list meant absolutely nothing to Earthquake." Since those open mic nights, Rod has become an award-winning, quintessential entertainer. He has graced the stage at Caesar's Place, The Gibson Amphitheater, and The Apollo Theater. Comedy Centralgave him his own half hour special. And he has made many other television appearances, among them "The Bad Boys of Comedy" for HBO, Martin Lawrence's "First Amendment" for Starz, Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" for MTV, "One Mic Stand" for BET, "The Funny Spot" for TV One, and "The World Stands Up" for BBC America and The Monique Show. Rod can be seen on the big screen in Judd Apatow's "Funny People" starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen for Universal Pictures.He even co-hosted a morning drive-time show in Los Angeles on Stevie Wonder owned KJLH Radio 102.3 FM. The world is catching on to what true Rod Man fans already know……………He's down to earth, crazy-funny, and truly a special talent.

The Word on Tennessee's unofficial Poet Laureate:

“RB Morris is the greatest unknown songwriter in the country.” ~ Lucinda Williams

“RB is the reason I started writing poetry.” ~ Steve Earle

RB Morris is a singer-songwriter and poet from Knoxville, TN touring in support of his new “Rich Mountain Bound” album and his published collection of “The Mockingbird Poems”. If RB Morris sounds familiar, it may be because he has toured all over the US with John Prine who recently recorded RB's song “That's How Every Empire Falls” on the vinyl version of his Grammy-winning album “Fair & Square” - and also on a four-song EP Prine released under the same name. Marianne Faithfull has also recorded this song for her new “Horses And High Heels” CD released in 2011. RB released his own debut album “Take That Ride” on Prine's Oh Boy! Records, and his follow-up “Zeke And The Wheel” (Koch Records) was nominated for Americana Album of the Year by the American Association of Independent Merchandisers. He has also toured with Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, and been on various Americana compilation albums.

Among recent shows in Europe he was a featured performer at the London Institute in Paris at the symposium honoring William Burroughs, and one of only a couple of musicians who were asked to contribute essays to the accompanying anthology honoring Burroughs. RB has been described as a “cross between a rural Tom Waits and an urban Woody Guthrie”. He is a published poet and playwright and a renowned songwriter, recording artist, and performer. He was inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame in 2009.

Join Author Michael E. Glasscock for a reading from his new novel

Presented by Parnassus Books at Parnassus Books

Michael E. Glasscock III is an internationally known otologic surgeon who practiced in Nashville for 30 years.  He is still an Adjunct Professor at Vanderbilt Medical Center.  He discovered his passion for fiction writing late in life. This is his fourth published novel.

The Life and Times of Jamie Lee Coleman traces the tumultous life of a gifted-but-troubled musician from his poor rural roots through the honky-tonks of Nashville and New Orleans to the Grand Ole Opry and beyond.  It is the third quartet of novels - known as the "Round Rock Series" - inspired by his memories of growing up in a small Middle Tenneessee town some 50 miles East of Nashville.

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.

“...There's a LIVED-IN AUTHENTICITY to his voice that is beyond so many of the young pretenders around these days. Beneath the gruff exterior lies a big heart capable of tenderness…” ( Exclaim Magazine )

“A sturdy blend of elegant ballads, turgid deliberation and additional elements of blues, roots and even a bit of vaudeville, ‘When the Deal Goes Down’ is not only ONE OF ONLEY’S BEST OFFERINGS TO DATE — and that alone says a lot, considering a resume that stretches back some thirty years — but also AN EXTRAORDINARY HYBRID of SOUNDS and STYLES.” ( Blurt! )

Etta Britt

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

It all started with a hairbrush. As a youngster, Etta Britt (born Melissa Prewitt) would spend hours at her bedroom mirror, belting out Supremes songs into her Stanley hairbrush. The seasoned veteran has toured the world and shared a stage or recording studio with everyone from Engelbert Humperdinck to REO Speedwagon. With what she calls a "cool groove record" -- her first album for the Wrinkled Records label -- Her second record is slated to be independently released early spring 2014. It is a collection of Delbert McClinton songs and is aptly name "Etta Does Delbert". Etta stakes her claim as one of the most versatile singers working today. She also happens to write her share of heart-piercing, soul-affirming tunes. Think Bonnie Raitt meets John Hiatt.

Born in Lancaster, Ky., a town of 3,500 south of Lexington, Melissa first became Etta at age 11, thanks to her little sister. "She called me Etta and I called her Myrna. We don't know why. It could've been a couple of old ladies in our hometown out in the country. We don't know." In 1978, Melissa joined Dave Rowland and Sue Powell in the country-music trio Dave & Sugar. Melissa stayed with the trio from 1979 to 1985, during which time they received CMA Vocal Group of the Year nominations five years in a row. They toured with Kenny Rogers, Dottie West and Conway Twitty, among many others. The experience led to countless TV appearances -- everything from Pop! Goes the Country and Solid Gold to the Dinah Shore Show and Dance Fever.

After Dave & Sugar, Melissa made the rounds in Nashville, playing clubs and singing on sessions with Waylon Jennings and others. During a session with Leon Russell, Etta’s husband, renowned guitarist Bob Britt, memorialized his wife’s stage name when he scribbled the name “Etta Britt” on a track sheet after Melissa’s sister called asking for Etta. The name "Etta Britt" was born.

After spending much of the 80's performing in Nashville, she met and married guitar great, Bob Britt. They soon became a family with two children. With both Bob and Etta in the music industry, they found themselves with two children and not much money. Etta put her career on the back burner and took many jobs including cleaning houses, waiting tables and selling real estate. Although she never gave up her dream of one day performing for a living, she was resolved in the fact that her time had come and gone since she was in her dfifties. That all changed over lunch with Sandy Knox when Sandy approached her at the age of fifty-three inviting her to sign with her new label Wrinkled Records. Etta jumped at the chance.

The release of "Out of the Shadows" brought much attention. Etta was a 55 year old with her very first record deal. Etta was featured in the Huffington Post with an article for Marlo Thomas.com. The article went viral and landed on the front page of AOL.com which lead to Etta being featured on "The Today Show".

She spent 2012 touring with Delbert McClinton and Paul Thorn as well as touring on her own and making television and radio appearances. She is excited about her second record and what this faze of her life will bring.

If the voice doesn't do it (and it does), the songs themselves put listeners on notice that Etta Britt is a courageous and genuine artist.

Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included more than two decades of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” winning every consecutive quarter of his hosting over the past 19 years.  After resuming hosting the 11:35 PM program following a one-time brief interruption of these duties, Jay once again took the show to the top, leading all of the ensuing quarters handily for another three years. Under his helm, the show was honored by the Television Academy with an Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series.” “The Tonight Show” has also taken home the trophy for “Favorite Late Night Show” in the annual TV Guide Awards determined by voting viewers, and Jay was recently installed in the Television Academy's Broadcast Hall of Fame.

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

OutCentral presents, “Wacky and Wicked” works by Clayton Reynolds

Presented by OutCentral at OutCentral

OutCentral Cultural Center is excited to present, “Wacky and Wicked”, works by Clayton Reynolds, with a reception for the artist, Saturday, August 2 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Clayton’s work will be up for viewing during normal business hours Monday and Thursday 9:30am to 2:30pm and Tuesday and Wednesday 9:30am to 5:30pm as well as when OutCentral is open for programming until September 11th.

From the artist, “Wacky and Wicked, is a two sided concept of how things are desirably perceived in both the visual and mental sides of the human mind; in the good, evil, sexual, color, pattern, as well as fantasy are what we crave in every influential subject. Whether, in human attraction as well as desire or in everyday design that surrounds us; furthermore, it’s what makes our personality correlate with our moods, or urgencies.”

Growing up in Lakeland, FL, Clayton began his fascination with color, pattern, and drawing, at the age of 6. His stick figure drawings included the minute details of design, facial features, and landscapes, showing that Clayton had a flair for more than just drawing. At age 13, Clayton began experimenting with life drawing, sculpture and still-life, going from, crayons, pastels, tempera, and oils to graphite and colored pencil. Clayton’s current medium of choice is acrylics. Clayton has a unique approach to composition, and working in a collage fashion with his subject matter. His works, show influences from Surrealism, Realism, Op Art, Expressionism, as well as Pop Art. Graduating, with a B.F.A., in Illustration, from the Savannah College of Art, and Design, Clayton now resides in Nashville, TN.

OutCentral, Inc. is Tennessee’s first and Nashville’s only cultural center dedicated to arts, wellness, and education programming for the LGBTQIF community.

Signature Series: John Johns with Carolyn Huebl, Kathryn Plummer and Felix Wang

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

John Johns, guitar, with Carolyn Huebl, violin, Kathryn Plummer, viola, and Felix Wang, cello

Music for Guitar and Strings

Guitarist Johns presents a colorful program of music by composers from Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil and Austria. Huebl, Plummer and Wang join Johns on Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Guitar” Quartet in D, a little-known work that’s actually an arrangement of the Haydn String Quartet in E, Op. 2, No. 2 for lute and string trio. It is unknown who made the arrangement, but it was possibly Haydn himself at the request of a patron. Johns opens the program with the ever-popular Concerto in D for Guitar and Strings by Antonio Vivaldi, also originally for lute, followed by a set of solo pieces for guitar by Fernando Sor, and three South American pieces composed by Jose Luis Merlin, Dilermando Reis and Joao Guimaraes.

Presented with gratitude to Judy and Steve Turner and to The Jenny and Jerry Howell Fund for Guitar for their generous support of the Blair School.

Drivin' N Cryin'

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

THE '80s We released our first album Scarred But Smarter in 1986 on 688 Records. 688 was the center of the underground Atlanta rock scene in the 1980’s. Bands as diverse as Hüsker Dü, Rank and File, Lords of the New Church, The Residents and a week-long stint by Iggy Pop graced the hallowed walls of that now-defunct nightclub. If you drive down Spring Street today, there’s just a doc-in-a-box where the punk rock used to be.

THE '90s In 1991 the more hard-rocking Fly Me Courageous ended up being the band's most commercially successful album, with the album being certified gold. The next few years the band toured with artists such as Neil Young and Soul Asylum. In 1993, DNC released another album produced by Geoff Workman, entitled Smoke, which peaked at No. 95 on the Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. This album was another all-out rocker, marked with guitar assaults, but it failed to catch on with the public as had its predecessor.

Lotsa touring, lotsa recording, lotsa people, lotsa stress, lotsa change, lotsa lotsa.

THE '00s 2009’s (Whatever Happened To The) Great American Bubble Factory (the first recording of new material in 12 years!) was the perfect crescendo to a long twenty-plus year career of drivin’ n’ cryin’. I think we found the true essence of what we started to build back in 1985. It’s the truth as we see it set to a soundtrack fueled by music we love, everyone from The Ramones, The Clash, The Seeds,Iggy, Dylan, Patti Smith Group, R.E.M., Thin Lizzy, The Rolling Stones. You get the point.

The '10s Cut to 2011/12: the Georgia General Assembly commended Drivin' N' Cryin' in a house resolution for the band's achievements. Sadler Vaden joins the band (replacing Mac Carter on lead guitar), we cut a deal with Redeye Distributors to keep our records out there in the public eye, we sign on with the William Morris Endeavor to book our shows, and a new record release concept comes to mind…!

Now jump to 2013: Songs From The Psychedelic Time Clock is released April 16, 2013. The band hits the road (again!) in support of all 3 EP releases, starting the tour in Atlanta with 2 sold-out nights at the legendary Star Community Bar (2 NIGHTS! NO HITS!) and capping it with a very cool show at Atlanta’s Music Midtown Festival, sharing the stage with Journey and Phoenix. Work begins on a super secret TV project for Fox’s FX Network to air January - April 2014. (more on this at a later date!) On days off between tour dates, the band convenes in Nashville TN and Memphis TN with producer Paul Ebersold to work on EP4 Songs For The Turntable.

2014 ushers in great new things including new lead guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan. Tasjan was honored by ASCAP at the Kennedy Center in 2013 as one of America’s great songwriters of the next generation. A much sought after guitarist, he has played lead guitar with The NY Dolls, Alberta Cross,Everest, Todd Snider, collaborated with Sean Lennon in the band Operation Juliet and had his songs recorded by Jack White and Pat Green.

Strand of Oaks

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

From the first bars of HEAL, the exhilarating melodic stomp of ‘Goshen ‘97’ puts you right into Tim Showalter’s fervent teenage mindset. We find him in his family’s basement den in Goshen, Indiana, feeling alienated but even at 15 years old, believing in the alchemy and power of music to heal your troubles. “The record is called HEAL, but it’s not a soft, gentle healing, it’s like scream therapy, a command, because I ripped out my subconscious, looked through it, and saw the worst parts. And that’s how I got better.” HEAL embodies that feeling of catharsis and rebirth, desperation and euphoria, confusion and clarity. It is deeply personal and unwittingly anthemic.

Showalter was on tour, walking back to his hotel on a mild autumn night in Malmo, Sweden, when he first felt the weight of the personal crisis that would ignite him to write HEAL. “It was a culmination of pressure,” Showalter recalls. “My marriage was suffering, I’d released a record I was disappointed in, I didn’t like how I looked or acted…so I’d gone on tour, I was gone about two years! I didn’t take time to think about failure, but I knew I was going deeper and deeper…I was thinking, I have this life, but it’s not my life, I haven’t done it right…”

When Showalter returned, he wrote 30 songs in three weeks, a process that proved difficult, but cathartic and at times even invigorating. Previous Strand Of Oaks records were more skeletal, raw examples of folk-rooted Americana with occasional rock and electronic currents, that have now come to the fore. HEAL’s sound is a bold new beginning, a thrilling full-tilt sound that draws on Showalter’s love of ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s rock and pop, with the singer and guitarist playing the intense valedictory confessor. “It’s sad but it sounds like a celebration, like I’m crying and laughing and sticking both middle fingers in the air all at the same time.”

Crucial to HEAL’s scaling-the-walls of sound was the man who Showalter chose to mix the record, the stellar alt-rock icon John Congleton. Showalter also re-connected with Ben Vehorn, synth expert and studio engineer extraordinaire, and Verhorn’s drummer pal Steve Clements who provides HEAL’s thunderous, sinewy drive. Songs such as ‘Shut In’, ‘Plymouth’ and ‘Woke Up To The Light’ have a classic construction and mood, recalling ‘70s power-pop/ballads and the melodic, yearning ache of Big Star’s late, great Chris Bell. Many of the songs on HEAL reveal an electronic undercarriage and towering drums that push the album’s wired dynamic to its stretching point, especially on ‘For Me’, which expertly bridges the album’s twin decades of influences. And if ‘Goshen ‘97’ recalls the molten energy of Dinosaur Jr, that actually is J Mascis on lead guitar.

Title track ‘Heal’ climaxes with Showalter’s fabulously brazen guitar solo, electronically tweaked for maximum impact. Despite the initials, the album’s smouldering seven-minute epic ‘JM’ is not a Mascis tribute, but to the late Jason Molina, about having his music as comfort no matter how bad things get.

Which brings us to another crisis, this time much more serious and immediate. HEAL was scheduled for mixing on December 26, 2013. Driving on the freeway on Christmas Day, Showalter and his wife hit a patch of black ice and crashed their car head on into a semi-truck, and were very fortunate to walk away with their lives. Showalter suffered a, “pretty severe,” head trauma, “which affected me much more than I realized at the time.” Fearing delays, Showalter didn’t let Congelton know about it, so the mixing session went ahead. “Being on the verge of death, and my thoughts being so closely tied to that, changed the album’s direction,” Showalter claims. “Together, we pushed it toward a much more cathartic sound that forces the listener to where I was at that exact moment, somewhere between almost dying and being absolutely fearless.”

HEAL is not just a saviour for its creator, but for anyone who needs reminding of music’s ability to heal, or just thrill. Showalter is taking out a full band to play, and finally, the kid who wanted to be a rock star at 21 might get his chance. Finally, he and Strand Of Oaks have much to celebrate.

Jerrod Niemann

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

“To say I am excited to headline at the Ryman is an understatement,” Niemann shares. “I remember when I first moved to town, my buddies and I would hang out in the honky tonks off Lower Broadway and the Mother Church of Country Music would always smile down at us from her perch. It's a rite of passage for all musicians to grace her stage as the main act, and I am very much looking forward to having that honor."

The Sea Gayle Records/Artista Nashville artist found huge success this year with his RIAA Gold-certified multi-week number one hit “Drink to That All Night” from his third major label release High Noon . He recently released a remix of the song featuring international superstar Pitbull. Niemann's new single, "Donkey," was just released to country radio and is currently climbing the charts.

Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the 2014 follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free The Music.  Niemann’s chart-topping critically acclaimed major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want."

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.

John Cowan, John McFee & Friends

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

John Cowan, currently the bassist for the Doobie Brothers, also known as the Voice of Newgrass, has been singing his heart out for thirty-five years now, and his soaring vocals have only improved with time.

A true innovator, John applies his powerful pipes to 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.

John McFee was born on September 9, 1950, in Santa Cruz, California and began playing music “so young I can’t remember a time when I didn’t play music.” With his interest in a wide range of musical styles he seems to have found the perfect band in The Doobie Brothers. “I was a big fan of the group before I ever thought about joining them – they were always experimenting and mixing blues, country, jazz, rock – all into their own style.”

Vanderbilt Symphony Orchestra/Vanderbilt Chorale and Symphonic Choir

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

Vanderbilt Symphony Orchestra Robin Fountain, conductor and Vanderbilt Chorale and Symphonic Choir Tucker Biddlecombe, conductor

German Masters
Psalms of David: I was glad when they said unto me, by Heinrich Schütz
Rosamunde entr’actes, by Franz Schubert
Shicksalslied (Song of Fate), Opus 54, by Johannes Brahms

This concert, performed as part of Vanderbilt’s Family Weekend festivities, will feature music composed by three German masters. First, Schütz’s setting of Psalm 122 calls for four choral and instrumental ensembles performing in different places in the auditorium - a stellar example of late Renaissance polychoral style. Then, the VSO will perform Schubert’s Rosamunde entr’actes, excerpts from incidental music written for a dramatic play. Finally, the performing forces will combine on one of Brahms’s most original and profound works, Schicksalslied, Op. 54. Written not long after the triumphant debut of the Ein Deutsches Requiem, Song of Fate closely emulates the various emotions of the human experience through overtly dramatic musical effects.

Presented with gratitude to Inka and Richard Odom for their generous support of the Blair School.

Journey with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

How many bands grow even more iconic with each passing year? It’s a short list, and on it is Journey. Through all its phases and eras, twists and turns the band sees its music become more popular as the years go on. The roadie who suggested the band name “Journey” truly had a vision.

In a career spanning five decades, Journey is blazing hotter than ever with the lineup of Neal Schon (guitars, backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Ross Valory (bass, backing vocals), Deen Castronovo (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals).

The band has reached heights that likely no other artist can hit these days, with its Greatest Hits album hitting 15-million-plus in sales. It’s not luck; it’s persistent, hard work over the years. When TV shows like Glee and The Sopranos made the song “Don’t Stop Believin’” a sensation decades after its release, it’s because that music endured. Since the group’s formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums.

The SteelDrivers with Brigitte DeMeyer

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

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.

Snap on 2&4 w/ Evan Cobb & Modern-Day Jazz Quintet

Presented by Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop

NJW welcomes back to the Jazz Cave saxophonist Evan Cobb with his band, the Modern-Day Jazz Quintet!

"Cobb’s fluency on the horn neatly disguises the complexities of his improvisations – complexities that gird but remain subservient to his overriding concern with propulsive melody.” - Neil Tesser, The Examiner"

As a tenor saxophonist, Cobb goes back to [Dexter] Gordon and [John] Coltrane, forward into the present but never abandoning the basic principles of melodic, swinging improvisation. His quintet always sounds larger than its numbers: Cobb has a bright future as a player, arranger, and composer." - Cadence Magazine

Since making Nashville his home in the fall of 2008 (by way of New York and Chicago), Evan Cobb has become one of Nashville's most in-demand woodwind players. Cobb has performed with myriad ensembles including the Nashville Symphony, the Nashville Jazz Orchestra, The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker, JD Souther, Cage the Elephant, and Aretha Franklin. Also an active educator, Cobb is the adjunct professor of saxophone at Bemidji State University, the director of our own Nashville Jazz Workshop Summer Camp and NJW Scholarship Program, and keeps a large studio of private students on the saxophone, oboe, flute, and clarinet. As host of our popular monthly jam sessions, Cobb turned original tunes workshopped for those jams into the successful debut album Falling Up in 2011 that charted well on JazzWeek and continues to be in regular rotation. Joining Cobb on the date are trumpeter Jamey Simmons, pianist Bruce Dudley, bassist Jonathan Wires, and drummer Josh Hunt, a can't miss "modern-day jazz quintet." The band is replete with talented, virtuosic professionals, yes, but these musicians also embody the necessary virtues of jazz in the 21st century: active in performing, teaching, & promoting jazz AND its related musics, planting seeds of excitement about jazz with young musicians. This Modern-Day Jazz Quintet will be performing all original music which is targeted for a soon-to-be-recorded second album.

Nashville Flipside Presents Dixie Still/The Pfeiffer Twins/Amber's Drive

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.

NeedToBreathe: Rivers in the Wasteland World Tour

Presented by The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel

The sons of an Assembly of God pastor, Bear and Bo Rinehart had inherited their father's gift with words, and put it to good use in their songwriting; their mother taught piano, making music a constant part of their young lives. Formed in 1999, NEEDTOBREATHE (with childhood friends Joe Stillwell and Seth Bolt) built an impressive regional following, playing throughout the Southeast. Along the way, they sold more than 15,000 copies of their self-released EP's, recorded by Seth, who had earned a degree in record engineering.

2006 saw the release of the band's major label debut, Daylight, and a relentless, national touring schedule. Despite being on the road nearly non-stop, NEEDTOBREATHE returned the following year with The Heat, which went to #2 on the Heatseekers chart and spawned the hit single "More Time," a top 10 success at Triple-A radio (sitting alongside established artists like Coldplay and Jack Johnson). The group's penchant for capturing a poignant moment or eliciting an emotion with their music is evidenced by the numerous songs from each of their albums that have appeared in film and television, including the Hilary Swank-starring, motion picture "P.S. I Love You" and MTV's "The Hills," among many others.

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

The Actors' Gang Presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream Directed by Tim Robbins

Presented by OZ at OZ

Academy Award winner Tim Robbins and his critically acclaimed LA-based theatre company, The Actors’ Gang, illuminate the forest of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with original music and a fervent approach to the language.

Founded in 1981 by a group of renegade theatre artists led by Robbins, The Actors’ Gang creates bold, original works and daring reinterpretations of the classics. In the last 31 years, the company has produced over 100 plays in Los Angeles, in forty US states, and on five continents.

Tinney Contemporary presents The New Real 2: Figure-Focused

Presented by Tinney Contemporary at Tinney Contemporary

Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present The New Real 2: Figure-Focused, a figurative photorealism exhibition curated by Tinney Contemporary Gallery Director, Sarah Wilson. A follow-up to Wilson's 2012 curatorial debut, this exhibition continues in the same vein as its predecessor by showcasing innovators in the contemporary realism genre with a roster of nationally and internationally known artists unparalleled in their technical skill yet lauded for their distinctive and arguably, defining, subject matter. Though varied in their specific choice of subject matter, the five featured artists (Eric Zener, Yigal Ozeri, Brian Tull, Ali Cavanaugh, and Kevin Peterson) are connected by their works' protagonists- the female figure.

The figures in the exhibited works range considerably in age, appearance, and demeanor, as well as in scale. In the front gallery Yigal Ozeri's romanticized, fantastical landscapes depict "beautiful youth" in nature alongside Eric Zener's hauntingly beautiful suspended swimmers and Brian Tull's sleek, graphic-oriented painting of a "femme fatale" receptionist from another time. In contrast, Ali Cavanaugh and Kevin Peterson's more intimately scaled works in the back gallery present the innocence and soft beauty of youth converging with the often dark awakening that comes with age.

These works do not merely replicate the "real world," though they are amazingly realistic in style. The immense power of these pieces results from the questions they beg of the viewer which ask not only of the artists' intentions but also of the intentions of the figures themselves- What is their emotional state? What is their psychological state? What is their fate?

By allowing the figure to dominate their paintings both visually and conceptually, Zener, Ozeri, Tull, Cavanaugh, and Peterson create works that boldly challenge the notion of photorealism as a genre plagued by a lack of complexity. On the contrary, their captivating portraits demand a psychological connection from the viewer, breathing life into their subjects by deftly blurring the line between illusion and reality.

"Create Your Story" Writing Performance Institute with Minton Sparks

Presented by Scarritt-Bennett Center at Scarritt-Bennett Center

Every one of us has a story about who we are. Some are wildly inspiring; other times, they are the very things that hold us back. Minton believes that tremendous value lies in locating yourself within a particular time and place in history. After all, many wonderful artistic pursuits are born out of autobiographies. This workshop offers you an opportunity to better discover who you are through exploring and listening deeply to your own story.

During this 3-hour writing and performance workshop, you will focus on the questions “Where are you from?” and “How does where you are from inform the definition of who you are?” while writing your own stories, exploring your family tree, studying storytelling techniques and learning from Minton's own work and experience. Minton will then guide you through using your stories to create various poems, pictures and performances.

No writing or performance experience necessary.

Space is limited to 20 participants. Please sign up by Friday, September 5th, so we can get a final count of participants. Register at http://www.mintonsparks.com/workshop.

Star Party - September

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Long Hunter State Park

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

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

The Likely Culprits

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Who knows what wild ideas lurk in the hearts and minds of even the most traditional bluegrass players? Take a look at the varied backgrounds of this new outfit's pickers - mandolinist Ashby Frank is moonlighting from a gig with uber-trad fiddler Michael Cleveland, Deanie Richardson (fiddle) has worked with Patty Loveless and Vince Gill, and Brandon Bostic (guitar) and bass man Austin Ward are with excellent contempo-grassers Blue Moon Rising and Kenny & Amanda Smith respectively. These credits might lead you to expect musical schizophrenia, but what they've come up with places rock-ribbed traditionalism at the service of catchy but sophisticated grooves that make categorization pointless. Singers Garnet Imes Bowman and Melonie Cannon - two of the country and bluegrass worlds' best - round out the bunch with justifiably self-confident vocals that range from feisty to melancholy without ever falling into cliche.

His likable personality and down-to-earth charm invite people into his brand of humor—one that is smart but not brainy and relatable but not hacky. While performing, Keith takes pride in laughing at himself and his “inner dork”, which he attempts to prove is something in all of us. Current events, popular trends, personal details… Keith shares his witty insight on everything, all the while doing it with a mischievous smile that quickly becomes infectious. A regular performer for the U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Keith has been described as “absolutely hilarious” by Armed Forces Entertainment and “a hidden gem” by the Boston Globe. He’s also a contributing writer for Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, National Lampoon and various online magazines.

Nashville Shakespeare Festival presents 'As You Like It' at Centennial Park

Presented by The Nashville Shakespeare Festival at Centennial Park Bandshell

The Nashville Shakespeare Festival presents the classic comedy As You Like It, with the twist of a Depression-era setting and original music by songwriter David Olney,

The festival's 27th annual Shakespeare in the Park production is inspired by the optimistic comedies of the 1930s, according to director Denice Hicks. "Costumed ushers will invite the audience to join the actors in our version of a 'tent city,' where even in the toughest times, songs are sung, stories are told and there's always time for a little buck dancing," said Hicks, who started working with the festival in 1990 and was named artistic director in 2005.

Festival fans are likely to recognize several cast members from previous productions. Emily Landham, who played Juliet in the festival's 2011 production of Romeo and Juliet, returns to the park this summer in the role of Rosalind. Landham is a former member of the Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s Apprentice Company and was in the festival's 2005 production of Winter’s Tale. Playing Duke Senior and Duke Frederick will be Nat McIntyre (Oberon in the 2013 Midsummer, and Iago from 2014 Othello). The romantic interest Orlando is Houston Mahoney (Demetrius in the 2013 Midsummer).

As You Like It marks David Olney's Shakespearean debut in the role of Amiens, playing his own songs written for the show. In addition, music director Stan Lawrence, from the Musical Heritage Center in Pegram, Tennessee, leads an authentic old time jam band.

Two Man Gentleman Band

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Irreverent songwriters, expert instrumentalists, former street-performers, and consummate showmen, The Two Man Gentlemen Band has been barnstorming from coast to coast for half a decade, developing a reputation as a must-see live act on the roots and retro music circuits. A tenor guitar and string bass duo in the tradition of the great Slim & Slam, The Gents have obvious affection for pre-war American Jazz and Western Swing. But they’re no period piece. The decidedly contemporary feel of their lyrics and the hilarious, often ridiculous, improvised banter that peppers their live shows combine with the music for a thoroughly modern ruckus. “It’s as if,” one reviewer commented, “The Smothers Brothers were young today, wore better suits, and wrote hot jazz songs about drinking.” To The Gentlemen, that sounds about right.

Justin Currie (of Del Amitri)

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

"Let me teach you how to write a song / The first line must be brief but strong / And the second line should rhyme with something in your baby's heart / Something that they know but cannot name / And in that way every song's the same."

From Every Song's The Same, track two on Lower Reaches.

Though he exercises some artistic license in the opening line above, Justin Currie points out that he's "as clueless as the next person" when it comes to the arcane art of songwriting. "It's a process that will always remain a mystery to me", he says. "When I wrote Every Song's The Same I was aware that it could be misconstrued, but it was more, 'Can somebody out there write something I can get excited about; something I can aim at?'"

After six albums with Del Amitri and three solo albums, what Currie has learned about songwriting is that you have to make yourself available to the muse. "Make sure you're bored", he says. "Make sure you're alone." To that end, in 2012, the Glaswegian singer briefly extricated himself from city life. Renting a remote cottage, he hunkered down beneath The Cuillins, the mountain range that dominates the Hebridean island of Skye. Currie had no internet and no mobile phone, just an acoustic guitar, a piano, and a ghetto-blaster on which to record his ideas.

"I suppose it was a bit like my Brill Building", he smiles. "You're being your own boss and putting yourself under pressure to write. I thought, 'If it all goes to fuck at least I can go hillwalking…'" It was songs rather than Skye's famous munros that got bagged, however. Currie wrote fifteen of them in eleven days, something of a personal best in terms of rapid-fire delivery.

The Lower Reaches songs Falsetto, On A Roll, On My Conscience and Half Of Me were all shaped on Skye, and in the end Currie came back two days early and repaired to the pub for a well-earned pint. His mate Aldo remarked that he'd never seen him looking so relaxed.

Jordan Knight / Nick Carter The Nick and Knight Tour

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Having fronted two of the biggest pop groups of all time with collective album sales of over 210 million worldwide, Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys and Jordan Knight of New Kids On The Block are joining forces for one of the hottest collaborations in years!! The multi-platinum singer-songwriters will drop their highly anticipated new studio album "Nick & Knight" on September 2, before embarking on a not-to-be-missed 39-date north american tour.

Jordan Knight rose to fame in the late 1980’s with pop powerhouse New Kids On The Block, selling over 80 million records worldwide with monster hits such as "The Right Stuff (You Got It)" and "I'll Be Loving You (forever)". A heart throb adored by millions of screaming fans, Jordan has been named one of People Magazines '50 Most Beautiful People' and in 1999 he went on to launch his successful solo career with his first gold certified album "Jordan Knight" featuring the platinum certified single "Give It To You". Knight later released three additional highly acclaimed solo efforts, including his most recent album titled "Unfinished" in May 2011, followed by the "Live & Unfinished" tour in 2012.

Named No.9 on People Magazines's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2000 and Cosmogirl's "Sexiest Man in the World" in 2002, Nick Carter shot to super stardom as a member of TRL favorites Backstreet Boys. Thanks to smash hits such as "I Want It That Way" and "Everybody (Backstreets Back),” Backstreet Boys went on to sell in excess of 130 million records worldwide. Nick launched his solo career in 2002 with the gold certified album "Now or Never", which he followed with 2011's "I'm Taking Off". In between musical projects, he has been busy with his first book, "Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It" as well as starring in the upcoming VH1 reality series "I ? Nick Carter".

Touring together is nothing new for Nick and Jordan. The New Kids and Backstreet Boys joined forces to form the super-group NKOTBSB and embarked on a sold-out tour across the world in 2011. Forming a firm friendship, "Nick & Knight" decided to combine their creative talents and powerful vocals to create a truly unique experience for their ever-loyal fan base. This is a rare opportunity for fans to witness their favorite “boy-banders” up close and personal, as they showcase their new music in intimate venues across the country. This is "Nick & Knight" as you have never seen them before. Fusing R&B, Dance and Pop tunes with infectious melodies, watch these two icons strut their stuff on stage and continue to dominate the scene together, just as they have for three decades. Expect the unexpected during this once in a lifetime concert tour coming to a city near YOU!

KONGOS

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

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

Belmont Faculty Concert Series: The Modern Jazz Quartet – A Retrospective

Presented by Belmont University - College of Visual and Performing Arts at Belmont University - Massey Performing Arts Center (MPAC)

The Belmont University Faculty Concert Series presents “The Modern Jazz Quartet – A Retrospective” featuring Bruce Dudley, piano; Chris Norton, percussion; Craig Nelson, bass; and Todd London, percussion.

The Modern Jazz Quartet was formed in 1952 by pianist John Lewis and vibraphonist Milt Jackson. With Lewis’ contrapuntal sense of musical composition and Jackson’s blues and bebop based improvisations, the MJQ succeeded in bringing a new sensitivity to jazz, bridging the gulf between jazz and classical music and creating a genre of music called Third Stream Music (a term that was coined by noted composer/musicologist Gunther Schuller). Jazz pianist and Belmont faculty member Bruce Dudley has transcribed from recordings several pieces that were conceived and recorded by the Modern Jazz Quartet. The Belmont Faculty Jazz Quartet, will perform “Concorde,” “The Golden Striker,” “Vendome,” “La Ronde,” and “Django,” among other pieces made famous by the Modern Jazz Quartet.

Cibo Matto featuring Nels Cline

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

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

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

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.

45 RPM with Daryl Singletary

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

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

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

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

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

Death By Drumstick, A Murder Mystery Dinner Show

Presented by Mel O'Drama Theater at Bella Napoli

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

“Death By Drumstick”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Interview: Marty Stuart with Scott Goldman

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

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

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

Sheriff Scott and the Deputies

at The Hermitage Hotel

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

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

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

Interview: Ry Cooder with Barry Mazor

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

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

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).


About Mike Farris & The Roseland Rhythm Revue: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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