Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman: Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church Of Country Music and the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974, is sacred to the history of country music.

Especially important to the history of the Ryman is its significant role in the history of bluegrass music. Although Bill Monroe had been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1939, it wasn't until a Saturday night in December of 1945 when bluegrass music as we know it today was born when a twenty-one year old young man by the name of Earl Scruggs stepped up to the WSM microphone on the Ryman stage playing the five-string banjo with a three-finger roll. This was the final ingredient in what we now know as bluegrass music.

Although it wasn't known as bluegrass at the time, there was something very unique and special about this edition of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys with Earl Scruggs which also included guitarist/lead singer Lester Flatt, fiddler Chubby Wise, and bass player Cedric Rainwater. Their weekly broadcasts on the Opry at the Ryman Auditorium over WSM, their Columbia recordings, and personal appearances through early 1948 provided the architectural ground work for all of bluegrass music.

Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs, Jim & Jesse, and the Osborne Brothers, all legendary bluegrass acts, became Grand Ole Opry members in their own right on the Ryman stage. Also important are the virtually dozens of well known bluegrass musicians who played on this stage while working through the ranks of the aforementioned bands.

The 2014 series runs Thursday nights from June 26 through July 31. Join us early each week during the season for Pickin' on the Plaza.

Nashville Dancin' featuring Special Guests

Presented by Dollar General at Riverfront Park

Nashville's Thursday night summer celebration, Nashville Dancin' presented by Dollar General, is back and ready to rock! Your hosts for this year are the hilarious duo Caroline and Jen from CBS's Amazing Race, along with beloved Nashvillian, Storme Warren.

The free event kicks off at Riverfront Park on June 12 and will run every Thursday through July 31. Those in attendance can expect to taste true Nashville as the city's favorite food trucks line up on First Avenue ("Food Truck Row") to showcase the unique culinary scene in Music City while East Tennessee distiller, Ole Smoky Moonshine, will be on site to mix up specialty summer cocktails.

Special Guests

Nashville Dancin' presented by Dollar General is made possible by our generous sponsors: Dollar General, State Water Heater, Budlight, Ole Smoky Moonshine, Town & Country Ford, 102.9 The Buzz, Xfinity, Fox 17 and more.

Natives will be pleasantly reminded of Dancin' in the District, the bygone concert series that ran for 13 years on lower Broadway. Last year, event creator Tom Morales (TomKats Catering, the Southern, Loveless Cafe) revived the weekly series with a brand new spirit while staying true to the principals that had originally made Dancin' in the District a success. When asked why Morales revived Dancin', he cited three things, "The timing was right, Mayor Dean was receptive and Dollar General stepped forward to keep it free."

Kim Logan with Anna Haas & SEYGO

Presented by 12th & Porter at 12th & Porter

Kim Logan arose from the swamps and beaches of Sarasota, Florida, after a decade in the opera industry, to write songs and make records in Nashville.

With her education from the Berklee College of Music, and her years of the kind of hands-on learning you can only get in honky tonks and on highways, Kim flexes her artistic muscles in every medium of art imaginable. In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has penned a guest editorial for Lockeland Springsteen, consulted on and served as muse for a collection by fashion designer Rachel Hesse, and collaborated with filmmakers Joshua Shoemaker (Shovels & Rope, Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff), and Trillbee the Hooligan (Ziggurat Records, Treekeeper) in the mediums of short film and music video.

A classic, craftsman's songwriting sensibility, paired with sonic homage to each unique sub-genre in the history of southern music, makes for Kim's gap-bridging, line-blurring, time-traveling sound. The diverse and compelling songs on her debut album were written over the course of her first two years living in Nashville. They were recorded at Ocean Way Studios on Music Row and at Electric Kite Studios in East Nashville – there is blood, sweat, and booze in every second of the recordings, and Kim continues to write for her second album.

From the delta blues to the psychedelic ‘60s, from the golden years of classic country to the perfect rock & roll of mid-century Britain, Kim illustrates her roots through her original music. In the dark and mysterious gentleman’s club of rock & roll, Kim is the new queen.

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

Film Loop: A selection of performances by Jim Reeves

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

Jim Reeves stands as one of the most distinctive singers in the history of country music. His smooth, warm baritone was a major component of the sophisticated, pop-influenced Nashville Sound that emerged during the late 1950s and early 1960s and boosted country music to new commercial heights. He died in a plane crash on July 31, 1964, and was elected posthumously to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967. This film loop contains performances of some of his classic songs including “Adios Amigo,” “Billy Bayou,” and “He’ll Have to Go.” 30 minutes. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.

Hunter Tynan Davis

Presented by Two Old Hippies at Two Old Hippies

Born on the Gulf of Mexico, Hunter Tynan Davis literally spent his formative years gaining his "balance" on the bow of his grandfathers shrimp boat. Every day was in pursuit of the rising sun and race to catch it before it sank into the ocean. Aside from the unique geographical environment he happened to be fostered in, a rich and intense home life allowed his song writing abilities to blossom. Hunters mother Tammy was a free spirited fashionista and his Father Shaun, a political words smith; who parlayed his own unparalleled song writing abilities into a satisfying political career.

At the age of eleven Hunter began (as many songwriters do) playing on his fathers old spanish guitar and the musical whirl winds were set in motion. As the years progressed, Hunters playing and song writing abilities grew exponentially along with his love of sports. After a brief stint playing division one college football, the path of life was made clear...music.

Quixotic feat. Juhi, Hotel War, Switchmen & Gorilla Baby

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

While attending college on a baseball scholarship, Gbaby front man Alex Whitmore picked up a guitar and started writing songs. When the college days came to an end, he moved back home to Nashville, TN where he began to share his songs with his dad, "Grey Wolf". The Wolfman then added friend and soulful bass player John Golemon (formerly of Walk the West and The Cactus Brothers), into the mix where they began to throw down rough draft arrangements with a keyboard as the drummer. A few months after making arrangements, drummer Lee Darby joined forces and the band began booking shows and recording their first album.

Today, Gorilla Baby has finished and recorded 2 albums that were mixed and mastered by Michael Saint Leon at Switchyard Studios. Saint Leon has mixed and mastered albums for legendary artists, Buddy Guy and George Thorogood and serves as lead guitarist in the Allman Brothers cover band "Midnight Riders". The musical chemistry from working with Mr. Saint Leon helped a sound of poetically visual lyrics, simple song structures, lingering melodies with discerning guitar riffs come to life in the world of mp3's.

Gorilla Baby has performed live all over Music City in venues such as The Family Wash, The 5 Spot, Drifters, FooBar, 12th and Porter, Third and Lindsley, Barefoot Charlie's, The National Underground, The Listening Room and were featured in Lightning 100 radio's Music City Mayhem. If your in the area and looking for a true Nashville music experience, get out to see a live show, its all about the music with Gbaby.

Josh Helms

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

Josh Helms has spent years honing the craft of songwriting and discovering what it means to deliver those songs to a live audience. "As far back as I can remember I’ve been singing in church and I would always stick at least one of my original songs in the set list," Josh admits. While in college Josh tried out and was selected to be a finalist on USA Networks Nashville Star 2 years in a row. During these trips to Nashville to sing at both the Wildhorse Saloon and The Stage on Broadway Josh fell in love with Nashville and everything the city had to offer. "I knew then that I had to move here and steep myself in the craft of writing and performing country songs. I was hooked!" The success of his gospel record So the World May Hear in 2008 allowed Josh to make constant trips back to Nashville to continue writing and performing and in 2010 when Josh admits I just could not stay away anymore, he moved to town fulltime. With a catalogue of nearly 300 songs Josh has written with many successful writers and publishing companies. Currently Josh is performing weekly at the Nashville Palace as well as other clubs around town.

Inveterate Composition for Clare

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

To be installed in March at the Demonbreun Street entrance to the Frist Center, Inveterate Composition for Clare (2011), by Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Owens, is composed of dismantled sections of two replica military Humvee shells, which have been reconstructed and welded together in a monumental, quasi-cubist form. The central iconography of rebuilt military vehicles suggests the fragmentation of war, while alluding to the extra layers of metal that American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan welded onto their Humvees and other transports to provide added protection from the improvised explosive devices (I.E.D.s) used against them. This work is at once a reflection of the horror of war and a memorial to those who have sacrificed their lives in its conduct.

A stereo system inside the sculpture initially hints at the music that soldiers riding in military vehicles might have used to calm themselves or psych themselves up for combat. But instead of hip-hop or heavy metal, the soundtrack is composed of the songs of whales and crashes of glaciers; haunting sounds that make an emotional link between human conflict and environmental vulnerability. Painted metallic white, the angular form of the sculpture suggests the jagged edges of an iceberg, establishing a connection between the global warming that is shrinking the ice pack and the consumption of fossil fuels that lies at the heart of many Middle Eastern conflicts. With its whale songs, the hulking white form also brings to mind Moby Dick, the great white whale that has come to signify humanity’s blind ambition to control forces larger than itself, whether in the context of war or the struggle with nature. The work was developed with the support of the late Clare Weiss, curator for the New York City Parks Department, who passed away in January 2010, after a long battle with breast cancer. Rachel Owens is represented in New York City by ZieherSmith Gallery.

The Bacon Brothers

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Kevin and Michael Bacon have been writing songs and playing music together since about the same time they may have been fighting over Lincoln Logs or little green Army guys. In fact, the cover of their first album, Forosoco, shows as much; the picture, taken in 1972, shows Kevin and Michael onstage playing congas and guitar, respectively. The look of communication between the two is telling: although the Bacon Brothers have only been a working band since 1995, they too, run decades deep.Their hallmark; writing songs that, through bare self-expression and humor, echo the lives of others. It’s an art they’ve refined over three albums and in the 50 to 60 shows they play each year. And with each album and tour, the Bacon Brothers move further away from perceived “don’t tap on the glass” sideshow to a “raise your lighter and sing along” rock band, garnering fan after fan and shattering the obstacle of perception.

The band began when Michael received an invitation to play a one-off gig at a local club in their hometown of Philadelphia. It went off a smash, and Kevin and Michael decided to explore its potential. Sold-out gigs in New York, LA, Nashville, Chicago and San Francisco followed, as well as a high-profile show opening for The Band at Carnegie Hall and appearing alongside the likes of Shania Twain and Wyclef Jean on the TNT Network’s “The Gift of Song” special. In eight years of recording and touring, the band has become a top live draw and continues to build momentum.

"When we first started, the people who attended our shows came strictly to see Kevin Bacon, the movie star," says Michael. "Now people come to see and hear The Bacon Brothers."

In addition to blue-ribbon live music, all shows feature autograph signings; complimentary food and a cash bar.

Holly Williams has allowed her art to evolve over time. After two acclaimed albums, her confidence and patience have made her one of Nashville’s most intriguing young singer-songwriters. The daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams, she has emerged with her own style, prompting the New York Times to declare, “She’s often closer to songwriters like John Prine or Bruce Springsteen.” Guests including Dierks Bentley, Jackson Browne, Jakob Dylan and Gwyneth Paltrow appear on Williams’ album The Highway, released last year.

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

Funky Meters

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

In their 31-year history, The Meters have grooved their way around the globe. They have toured with such talents as The Rolling Stones, and have been a studio band for such diverse artists as Dr. John, Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer, and Patti Labelle.

Considered by many to be the founding fathers of funk, The Meters created a unique sound that lasted through the sixties and seventies and was reborn in the late eighties. Their trademark sound blends funk, blues, and dance grooves with a New Orleans vibe.

The history of this native New Orleans band dates back to 1967, when keyboardist Art Neville recruited George Porter, Jr., Joseph (Zigaboo) Modeliste and Leo Nocentelli to form The Meters. When Neville formed the band, he had already been a prominent member of the New Orleans music community for 15 years. He was still in high school when, leading The Hawkettes, he cut the 1954 hit single "Mardi Gras Mambo", which is still pressed every year at Carnival time.

In Wherever the River Runs, Kelly Minter invites us on a jungle adventure down a river teeming with piranhas, caymans, a beautiful people, and, especially, God's presence.

For anyone feeling complacent in their American Christianity, Kelly's story of the forgotten people of the Amazon and how they transformed her understanding of the gospel is sure to inspire.

Kelly Minter is an acclaimed author, Bible teacher, and musician. Her bestselling Bible studies include Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break and Ruth: Loss, Love & Legacy, and her books Water into Wine, No Other Gods, and The Fitting Room.

Jonell Mosser

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

Even if you don't know her by name, you probably have her in your CD collection. She has provided backing vocals for a who's who of performers ranging from Etta James and Delbert McClinton to Trisha Yearwood and Wynonna to Kristen Chenoweth and Bruce Cockburn. She was the first and only female vocal choice of super producer Don Was when he started his own project The New Maroons with Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Ringo Starr and Mark Goldenberg. And Jonell Mosser is just getting started.
 

With riveting live shows and her undeniable voice, Jonell has been packing in crowds of believers for over three decades - no small feat in an age of short attention spans and an ever-changing musical landscape. She is the rare artist who finds the soul of every song she sings and bares it for both herself and her audiences, whether it's a feisty strut, devastating heartbreak or a finely etched portrait of a moment in time.

With both critical and popular acclaim in her corner, Jonell continues to make loyal fans of everyone who hears her. Her latest release Fortunes Lost, Fortunes Told shows a woman at the height of her talent. Once you discover her, you will be a believer, too.

The Jack Pearson Band

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

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”.

NMAAM Creates Infographics Featuring James Brown's Prolific Career

Presented by National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) at Regal Green Hills Stadium 16

In addition to hosting the premiere screening of the James Brown biopic, NMAAM has developed new content to further illustrate the impact that the "Godfather of Soul" has on music.

James Brown began his career as a member of the Famous Flames; however, because of his dynamic, impassioned delivery, Brown emerged as the lead singer of the group. The Famous Flames went on to perform 12 songs that hit Billboard's R&B and pop charts. Eventually the group disbanded due to internal conflicts and Brown went forth to become a solo artist with a backing band most commonly referred to as The J.B.’s.

Eric Brace, Jon Byrd and Thomm Jutz

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

As front man of the acclaimed roots-rock band Last Train Home, as a solo artist, and as a duo with songsmith Peter Cooper, Eric Brace is a prolific and admired artist. A former music journalist for the Washington Post, Brace relocated to Nashville in 2003. He has released eight CDs and one live concert DVD with Last Train Home (Last Train Home, True North, Holiday Limited, Time and Water, Bound Away, Tributaries, Last Good Kiss, and Live at IOTA), as well as a sublime album called The Skylighters, where Brace led a band that included bluegrass luminaries Mike Auldridge on dobro and Jimmy Gaudreau playing mandolin. After moving to Nashville, Brace began touring and recording with duo partner Peter Cooper, and the pair has two much-lauded albums to their credit. You Don’t Have To Like Them Both was released in 2009 and was a #1 album on the Freeform American Roots Chart, Top Five on the Folk Chart, and Top Ten on the Americana chart. The opening track on that CD, "I Know a Bird," which was penned and sung by Brace, was the #1 Folk song on its release and a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Brace lives and works in East Nashville, where he runs indie record label Red Beet Records. He's a devoted champion of the rich and productive East Nashville music scene, having produced three compilations of East Nashville music featuring some of Nashville’s finest songwriters. Brace is co-producer of the Grammy-nominated I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs of Fox Hollow, on which he appears with his band Last Train Home. His most recent project is Hangtown Dancehall, a musical about the California Gold Rush, co-written with Karl Straub, featuring Kelly Willis, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott, Jason Ringenberg, and more.

MOJO Magazine proclaimed Jon Byrd's debut recording "Americana the way it was and the way it should be.” MAVERICK Magazine declared Byrd's follow-up “Spellbinding, showcasing a true genius at work." That same year Jon was a featured vocalist on the Grammy-nominated I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs Of Fox Hollow, alongside Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Bobby Bare, and Tom T. himself. So how do you follow that kind of run? By making a record the way the old Nashville outlaws did– by recording the best written songs around, even if they are your friends' songs! Jon's new record ROUTE 41 hits this Fall and will include songs by Mando Saenz, Davis Raines, Peter Cooper and the Wrights. "A superbly talented songwriter… on a par with other Americana stars like Prine, Snider, Crowell... a fine representation of one of the best songwriters and stylists today.” – Americana Gazette

Born in the Black Forest of Germany, Thomm Jutz started playing music at the age of six. He won several nationwide competitions as a teenager before studying classical guitar at the University of Stuttgart. At the same time, he played endless gigs all over Germany and the neighboring countries with Blues and Rock Bands, though his true love has always been Country, Bluegrass and Folk Music. In 2003 he moved to Nashville to start his creative life over. Jutz hit the ground running and toured all over the world with veteran troubadour David Olney, Americana star Mary Gauthier and Grammy-winning folk singer Nanci Griffith. Jutz has produced albums for Nanci Griffith (for which he received a SESAC award), Otis Gibbs, German vocal star Marc Marshall and countless other independent artists from the US and Europe (for a complete list of projects, click here). He produced Volumes 1 & 2 of “The 1861 Project”, a collection of new songs about the American Civil War. Marquee artists like Marty Stuart, John Anderson, Jerry Douglas, Maura O’Connell, Connie Smith, Chris Jones, Sierra Hull and many more are featured on these records. Jutz cowrote all the songs on these albums. “The 1861 Project” has received praise from historians, critics, music lovers and Civil War enthusiasts alike. Thomm also cowrote songs recorded by Kim Richey, Nanci Griffith, Irene Kelley, Peter Cooper and German vocal stars Marshall & Alexander.

His songs have been recorded by Tim Hicks, The Lovelocks, Jess Moskaluke, Ivan Parker, Back Home, Karen Peck and a variety of indie artists. Garth Brooks describes Rob’s song, “How to Bend” as, “…a beautiful sentiment, a timeless message and a great song.” His music is family friendly, filled with real life and sprinkled with humor. He performs concerts throughout the US, has opened shows for Dove Award-winning and Grammy Award-winning artists and he's a frequent performer at Nashville area venues. Rob’s latest release, “Winnebago”, (on Wayne Manor Records) was produced by Michael Farren (Pocket Full of Rocks) and is available on iTunes, other digital outlets and at robharrisonline.com.

The Mann Sisters

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

Sweet, family harmonies, blending together like only the voices of twin sisters can; combined with heartfelt original songs, is what you can expect to hear from The Mann Sisters. With influences ranging from the great Everly Brothers to Simon and Garfunkle and Fleetwood Mac – Lauren and Alexandra Mann, 21-year-old sisters from Miami, Florida, pride themselves as up-and-coming artists, songwriters, and musicians. Lauren’s keyboards and rich vocals inhabit a haunting higher register; while Alexandra’s gritty guitar playing and vocal harmonies bring out an acoustic rock edge, that mix to create their distinctive sound. Their performances not only mirror their love for their music, but also their love for each other. It’s clear to see how much they enjoy performing side-by-side, so in tune with each other, making for a uniquely entertaining show. Deemed “ones to watch” by Music Row critic, Robert Oermann, The Mann Sisters deliver their audiences well-crafted, life-inspired original music, with tight musical performances, keeping folks captivated and coming back for more.

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: Crystal Gayle, Sturgill Simpson, Emily West, and more to be added.

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

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

National Women's Survivors Convention

Presented by Women Survivors Alliance at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center

The Nation's Premier Cancer Survivors Convention Grows Bigger and Better for 2014
The greatest group you never wanted to join!

Plans are quickly unfolding for the Second Annual National Women’s Survivors Convention. This one-of-a-kind event designed to honor and inspire cancer survivors will take place Thursday, July 31 - Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 2013, survivors and supporters from 49 states and 5 countries came together for the inaugural event created by the Women Survivors Alliance. Convention participants displayed ribbons representing 27 different cancers, while gathering information from 112 cancer organizations and a bunch of new friends.

“I found a home and I didn’t even know I needed one,” said survivor Susan Jett. “I became energized and proud to be part of this community of women.” Another attendee proclaimed, “I learned more about survivorship in 2 1/2 days than I have in the last 7 years.”

Today there are more than 7 million women cancer survivors in the United States and while our primary mission is to bolster and redefine their lives we know that cancer is a game changer for everyone involved. In 2014 we’re encouraging survivors to bring their spouses, children, BFFs and caregivers. The three day event will feature a co-survivor track, a men's only track, a young adult survivor’s track, sponsored by Stupid Cancer, and a breast cancer only track.

“Once the treatments are done and the doctors set you free, you’re suddenly alone with a new normal,” said Karen Shayne, survivor and co-founder of the Women Survivors Alliance. “We want to help get these survivors get back on track. Back to living a high quality life armed with new tools for the new obstacles and questions ahead.”

Also for 2014, participants can expect more celebrities, cutting edge researchers, cancer-based organizations, networking opportunities, the Celebrate Survivors 5k and the opportunity for a night out downtown. Returning favorites include the Survivors Marketplace Expo, makeovers, Red Carpet Live Pajama Party, and more!

Tim Meadows

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Meadows' start in show business was in Chicago as a member of The Second City comedy troupe alongside future star Chris Farley. In 1991, Meadows landed a spot on Saturday Night Live and would go on to become a longtime cast member, appearing on the program until 2000. (Meadows was on the show for ten seasons; this was the record for the longest tenure on the show until it was surpassed by Darrell Hammond in 2005.) Meadows' lengthy tenure on the show was used as a gag in three monologues when former cast members Phil Hartman and Mike Myers returned to the show to host, and when Alec Baldwin hosted for his twelfth time.
Meadows has appeared in other feature films, including Coneheads, It's Pat, and Wayne's World 2, all of which were based on popular SNL characters and had varying rates of success. He was in the 2006 film The Benchwarmers alongside his former SNL co-stars Rob Schneider and David Spade. He was also featured in CBS's Gameshow Marathon (summer 2006), has appeared on The Colbert Report in the recurring role of P.K. Winsome (who made an appearance at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear), and starred in The Bill Engvall Show. He is also a frequent guest on the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson as a comic field reporter.

Pieces of Shelby Photography Exhibit

Presented by Shelby Bottoms Nature Center at Shelby Bottoms Nature Center

Originally from Cairo, IL, Barry Noland has been a Nashvillian since 1980. He is self-trained and has been exhibiting since 2003. In 2012, this collection of alternate perspective nature photography in black & white taken at East Nashville's Shelby Park/Shelby Bottoms Greenway was selected by Arts at the Airport to be exhibited at Gate C of the Nashville International Airport during the summer/fall season. This exhibit now comes to Shelby Bottoms Nature Center. Barry states, “I don’t typically just take nature “portraits.” Rather, I see flora and fauna in the same way I see man-made objects—as elements of a pre-existing abstract work that it’s my job to capture and frame within the proper ratio with my camera. However, that’s not totally cut and dry: Capturing beauty is my main objective. And sometimes, that requires a more direct approach. You’ll see both perspectives in this collection.

The Rocky Mountain AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship

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

The Annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship is held at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. It’s the largest and most prestigious racing prize for amateur motocross riders in the nation. This is the concluding event following 50 area qualifying events and 12 regional championships around the country. More than 20,000 racers attempted to qualify for the 1,446 available positions.

The racetrack is utilized just twice a year for the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships (since 1982) and AMA ATV Motocross Championship (since 1985). A track used so little ensures a fair playing field, and no "hometown advantage," since no one will have a chance to ride or race on it before the rest of the competition arrives.

As a producer, the Texas native has produced acclaimed albums by Brandi Carlile, Jack Ingram, Chris Knight, David Nail, Kellie Pickler, Pistol Annies, and Lee Ann Womack (whom he married in 1999).

A Field Guide to Getting Lost from Jenna Maurice & John Whitten

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

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents A Field Guide to Getting Lost, featuring video work by alumni Jenna Maurice and John Whitten, at its downtown gallery WAG during the August 2 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

Taking the title of the 2006 book by Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost is a video-based exhibition about Maurice and Whitten’s relationships with nature, the unknown, and their search for the unfamiliar. These artists champion being lost. It is a goal for which they strive. Their research happens deep in secluded areas where isolation and solitude are desirable characteristics. Having relocated from Nashville to geographic regions offering some of the United States’ most diverse landscapes (Maurice to Colorado and Whitten to Oregon), their work deals with the subtleties of communication amid isolation, and their interpretation of the natural world. Fueled by a desire to discover a deeper level of connectedness to their environment, the two artists employ a range of tactics from subtle, poetic gestures of mimicry to spectacular displays of signals designed to attract help. In this work, both artists question their sense of place in the natural world, what it means to make one’s way through life, and what it means to be a lost soul.

Jenna Maurice (JennaMaurice.com) is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Denver, CO. Relationships, relational dynamics, communication and problems with language are the things she questions, ponders and experiments with in her work. She is interested in the human experience of empathetic response, as well as the subtleties of the body as a tool for non-verbal communication.

She received a BFA in Photography from Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, and an MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her current studio practice centers around dabbling in whatever makes sense for solving the problems she wants to address. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows, including at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Deluge Contemporary in Victoria, Canada, and the Contemporary Living Gallery in Lecce, Italy.

John Whitten (JohnWhitten.com) excavates the meditative and philosophical implications of what it means to wander. The question of what it means to be a lost soul frames his practice as he searches for the unfamiliar. Driven by a passion for the outdoors and our cultural fascination with survivalism, his drawings and videos investigate what it means to make one’s way through life.
Whitten grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by corn, animals, and a fundamentalist belief system. He majored in studio arts as an undergraduate, receiving his AS from Vincennes University in Vincennes, IN, and BFA in Fine Art from Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. He went on to receive his MFA from the University of Oregon in Eugene.

Whitten’s work has been screened/exhibited nationally in galleries, museums and raw exhibition spaces. His work has been included in exhibitions at Disjecta in Portland, OR; the University of Oregon’s Laverne Krause Gallery; Clatsop Community College in Astoria, OR; and in Nashville at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Rymer Gallery, Zeitgeist Gallery and Belmont University’s Leu Art Gallery. He spends his time in the South, Midwest and Pacific Northwest.

WAG–an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery–is located in suite 77 upstairs in the historic Arcade and is open the first Saturday evening of the month during each Art Crawl (from 6-9 p.m.), and by appointment.
WAG joins approximately 20 participating Art Crawl galleries along Fifth Avenue of the Arts and upstairs in the Historic Arcade. Admission is free, and the Nashville Downtown Partnership provides two free shuttles traveling among the venues. For more information on the First Saturday Art Crawl, visit nashvilledowntown.com/play/first-saturday-art-crawl.

Honey Badgers Don’t Give a B**k Tour

Presented by Global Education Center at Global Education Center

Line Breaks Literary Reading Series will host a mid-summer reading and community writing workshop by three award-winning Asian American poets. Join us on August 1 and 2 as we welcome debut authors, Michelle Chan Brown (Double Agent, Kore Press), Cathy Linh Che (Split, Alice James Books), and Sally Wen Mao (Mad Honey Symposium, Alice James Books).

Magpie Poetry: A Generative Workshop - 10:00am, August 2
In this workshop, we will draw from a variety of sources (art, poetry, science) and our own poetic obsessions to generate new poems and new drafts. We take our inspiration from the magpie, a bird that is resourceful with shiny objects and collects materials to build its nest, just like poets in a (figurative) sense. We’ll read some poetry and share our spoils.

For more info on the tour, see website Honey Badgers Don't Give A Book Tour.

Dazzling Dragonflies: The Not-So-Hidden World of Dragonflies and Damselflies

Presented by Warner Parks Nature Center at Warner Parks Nature Center

Did you know that there are over 150 kinds of Odonates in Tennessee? Odonata is the scientific name for the group of insects that includes dragonflies and damselflies. They live most of their life cycle as aquatic insects, so the adults are usually found around water. The “Odes” come in all sizes, are aggressive predators to other insects, and can be beautiful and fascinating to watch, study and photograph. This workshop will include classroom time with an introduction the many varieties of Odes to be found in our area, with discussion of where and when to find them, and will include tips on how to photograph them and an outdoor field session where we will be looking for and hopefully photographing some!

Part of a continuing series of book signings to benefit Nashville Cat Rescue.

Those who cannot attend in person can purchase the book online at www.mybestlittlebuddy.com, and their books will be signed and mailed first-class to them by the author.

Recently featured in Cat Fancy magazine and Channel 5's Talk of the Town, the heartwarming story of the 17 year relationship between the author and a little grey tabby cat named Tiger has captured hearts and high praise from readers, bloggers and top Amazon reviewers.  Here are brief excerpts from just a couple of reviews:

"Templeman writes from the heart, and his simple but powerful prose and the plentiful photos make the reader feel like he or she is right there with Tiger and his family. Perhaps that is the true magic of sharing such a seemingly ordinary  story of a special cat: by sharing Tiger with the world, he becomes everyone's cat."  Ingrid King, The Conscious Cat

"This very well written book is in a class of its own! It is a story of love and trust and one that will truly inspire you. It has certainly inspired me."  Daisy S., Hall of Fame Top 10 Amazon Reviewer

Giving Back: A Morning with Andrew Saftel and Barry Buxkamper

Presented by Cumberland Gallery at Cumberland Gallery

Cumberland Gallery presents a gallery talk with local artists Andrew Saftel and Barry Buxkamper. Both men are teaching artists who have recently traveled as “strangers in a strange land” working with students in Bangladesh and Bhutan.

Andrew Saftel led a workshop through a collaborative effort with the Bengal Foundation and the American Center of the US Embassy in Dhaka in an effort to conserve the arts and culture of Bangladesh. This series of workshops united printmaking and poetry around a common theme “The Urban Experience.” Saftel worked with local printmakers and art students to produce a selection of works revealing both the positive and negative aspects of urban life. These pieces were combined with the works of aspiring poets and made available for exhibition through the Bengal Art Lounge in Bangladesh.

Barry Buxkamper traveled to Bhutan on a personal journey and, through a series of connections, ended up at the Choki Traditional Art School in Thimphu. This private school’s mission is to aid the children of broken and economically disadvantaged families in receiving an education in traditional Bhutanese arts as well as English, Math and Computers. Buxkamper spent a day at the school showing his own work, viewing the works of the students and generating a dialog with the teens to uncover the commonalities between their traditional, culture-based work and his intimately personal work.

We welcome you to take a moment Saturday morning to join us for coffee and doughnuts as these artists share their experiences interacting with students through cultural barriers with the common language of artistic expression.

Regular gallery hours are 10:00am to 5:00pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

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.

With a goal to become actively involved in the local as well as the global art community, Azadi's work focuses on the intersection of gender and politics, particularly on the tension between religious tradition and modernity. Utilizing moving image, photography, and performance, she has found a fruitful collaboration with Owens, who also treats these media as most efficient in her current pursuits.

Hanna M. Owens is concerned with the point at which the political and the social collide with the intimate, siting the body as the intersection where we find evidence of emotion. She is an interdisciplinary artist most interested in what happens in the 6-8 cubic inches of air that hover immediately outside of our skin. Her efforts remain under that same umbrella: language, the body, and intimacy.

Currently working together in the MFA Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago--Azadi, a first year student in Moving Image and Owens a second year in Studio Arts--the two began collaborating in 2013 on performances pursuing questions of gender, sexuality, and desire. The two utilize garments and dance to create engaging performance that evokes an emotionality in the gray between self-sexualization and self-denial.

Don Schlitz

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

Don Schlitz wrote a song called "The Gambler" long ago, a song that possesses what may be the most-quoted chorus in American song. "The Gambler" was Schlitz's first hit as a songwriter, and had he never written another tune then that one would likely have landed him in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. (He’s there.) But Schlitz didn’t stop, penning "On The Other Hand," “Forever and Ever, Amen”, "I Take My Chances," "The Greatest," "When You Say Nothing At All", and hundreds of other songs (including 24 #1’s and 50 Top 10’s.) He’s won Grammys, CMA, and ACM awards and moved beyond the radio, as the sole composer and lyricist of Broadway's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A four-time ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, Don received the ASCAP Creative Achievement Award in 2007 and the Academy of Country Music’s Poet’s Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2009. He was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2010. Most recently he was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame- out of the tens of thousands of successful songwriters of our era, there are fewer than 400 inductees who make up the impressive roster enshrined in the Hall of Fame! These days, he’s delighting audiences across America with his songs, his smile, and his irrepressible wit. And yes, he’s still writing.

Penny Opera

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

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

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer, bassist, engineer, producer, Chip Martin wears many hats well. He formed his first band at the age of 12 and has been on stage ever since playing in rock and country-rock groups from Maine to Miami. In the late 70′s, Chip turned his talents toward songwriting, and to date has over 200 songs in his catalog. He has an RIAA certified gold record for his song “Forget About Love” recorded by country star Mark Wills, has a song that is the title track (“Love Me or Leave Me Alone”) on Randy Meisner’s (formerly of The Eagles) latest CD, a tune placed on Billy Paul’s record “Wide Open” (of “Me and Mrs. Jones” fame), and a cut by Grand Ole Opry star Billy Dean. The latest news for Chip is he co-wrote the upcoming single for The Little River Band’s CD. Chip is currently working with Kyle Lehning, producer of Randy Travis, Bryan White, Restless Heart, and many more, on a co-venture producing up-and-coming artists in Nashville. Chip is a voting member and has served on the Board of Governors of NARAS (the Grammy Organization), is active in the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), and is on the Board of Advisors for the Ga. Music Industry Assn.

Passenger

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

The last year or so has certainly been a wild and wonderful ride for Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg: from years dedicated to busking the streets of towns and cities across the globe, to sudden worldwide recognition with his international hit "Let Her Go."

Long before Passenger's unmistakable voice unexpectedly found a home on mainstream radio waves around the world, thanks in large part to his breakthrough track "Let Her Go" (a #1 chart-topper in 16 countries), Rosenberg was committed to taking his music to the people literally one street at a time.

When the Brighton UK-born artist's band broke up in 2007, Rosenberg inadvertently set about forging his own musical path as a genuine troubadour. He held onto the band's name, Passenger, and began travelling from town to town, across countries and continents, armed with only his guitar and his voice and a swag of unique songs. He played them to whoever would listen, wherever, and for whatever loose change they might be willing to spare.

"I've basically funded my last four records from busking," says Mike. "The busking pays for everything really. It's an amazing thing to have stumbled upon because the dilemma for every musician is -- how do I put a hundred per cent of myself into my music whilst keeping myself together? It's not a new problem -- it's always been the case -- but with busking I found I could make a bit of money and at the same time spread the word and grow a fan base. Honestly, the more I do it, the more I enjoy it. It's great that it's getting bigger for me. I feel very lucky to be able to play some really big gigs and festivals now but I still love playing in the street and want to carry on doing so for as long as it's possible. It has become a way of life and I really start to miss it if I don't do it for a while."

Passenger's fortunes began to rise in late 2009 when he decided to take a working summer holiday to Sydney, Australia -- and immediately fell in with a crowd of likeminded souls. Mike was warmly embraced by the local independent music community and was soon sharing bills with some of the scene's leading singer/songwriters. At the same time his busking sessions in various Australian cities had a genuine groundswell effect, laying the foundation of a solid national fanbase.

In late 2010, Passenger released what would be his third post-band album, "Flight Of The Crow," a collaboration with many of those new Australian music mates guesting in the studio. The record helped establish Passenger as one of the most popular new acts on the Australian live circuit and started to regularly sell out rooms and theatres of 500-plus across the country.

Trips back home to the UK, through Europe and over to North America -- busking and playing shows -- provided the the groundwork for what followed. Back in Australia, Passenger set to work on what would become his defining work so far, "All The Little Lights," released early in 2012. The album proved itself to be a slow burner. It debuted at #9 on the national Australian charts, but it wasn't until the release of its second single, "Let Her Go," that the rest of the world began to tune in.

In the meantime Passenger hit the road again, personally taking his music to the people. He hooked up with an old friend along the way, a fellow travelling musician on his own upward trajectory, British singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran. "We used to play in rooms of six people," Ed has joked of their brothers-in-arms friendship, adding in all seriousness: "Mike has made four of my favourite CDs."

Undoubtedly, Sheeran has played a great part in helping introduce Passenger to the international mainstream -- the pair played dozens of shows together across Europe, Australia and North America. As a result, "All The Little Lights" has now achieved Top 10 chart status in over a dozen countries, while "Let Her Go" has topped the 2.5 million mark in global sales, as well as over 78 million YouTube hits so far.

It's certainly been a remarkable trip for Rosenberg of late, yet you feel this is only the start of the journey. 2013 will see him make countless European festival appearances, as well as more touring across Europe, North America and Australia.

Of course, you can still catch Passenger busking in almost every city he visits -- only nowadays, it's pretty much standing-room only!

The Red Velvet Cake War

Presented by Lakewood Theatre Company at Lakewood Theatre Company

In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins—Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmi—could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion.  Having “accidentally” crashed her minivan through the bedroom wall of her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide, Gaynelle is one frazzled nerve away from a spectacular meltdown.  But the cousins can’t back out of the reunion now. Unfortunately, they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season.

American writer, meets Ernst, a German who surprises Cliff by putting his briefcase among Cliff’s luggage at the German border. Musical numbers include "Willkommen", "Cabaret", "Mein Herr", "Maybe This Time", "The Money Song", and "Two Ladies."

Nashville Sunday Night: TRIGGER HIPPY feat. Joan Osborne, Jackie Greene, Steve Gorman, Tom Bukovac, Nick Govrik with Lera Lynn

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

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

Trigger Hippy is a powerful, soul-infused rock and roll band founded by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, featuring twin lead vocals from multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne and singer-songwriter Jackie Greene, who also plays guitar and keyboards. Rounding out the group are lead guitarist Tom Bukovac, and bassist Nick Govrik.

According to The Memphis Commercial Appeal, the bands material draws “…heavily from the members' shared love of R&B and soul — lots of Al Green and Stax, some old blues covers and a little bit of Led Zeppelin and Little Feat thrown in for good measure.”

Built for the stage, Trigger Hippy’s early warm up shows have already garnered acclaim. This new creative collective of musicians will tour extensively in 2014. The band’s debut EP was released on November 29th at independent record stores as part of Record Store Day.

Sunday Spotlight with Jamie Kent

Presented by The Bluebird Cafe at The Bluebird Cafe

Sunday Night Spotlights feature great bands and up and coming songwriters. They might not have a lot of hits yet, but you will see a great show. This show lasts until 7:00pm. The room will then be cleared for the Writers Night that follows. We do not take reservations for this show. Seats are first come, first served. Doors open at 5:00pm.

A fresh 26-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Ray Lamontagne and Amos Lee as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Since the release of his debut LP in 2011, the singer-songwriter has been collaborating with his band, Jamie Kent & The Options, to cultivate a sound with a strong folk rock and Americana influence. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Wood Brothers, Marc Broussard, Ellis Paul, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes.

Puckett's Sunday Spotlight hosted by Marcus Whybrew ft. The Mann Sisters

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

Tonight's feature artist(s) will be The Mann Sisters

Sweet, family harmonies, blending together like only the voices of twin sisters can; combined with heartfelt original songs, is what you can expect to hear from The Mann Sisters. With influences ranging from the great Everly Brothers to Simon and Garfunkle and Fleetwood Mac - Lauren and Alexandra Mann, 21-year-old sisters from Miami, Florida, pride themselves as up-and-coming artists, songwriters, and musicians. Lauren’s keyboards and rich vocals inhabit a haunting higher register; while Alexandra’s gritty guitar playing and vocal harmonies bring out an acoustic rock edge, that mix to create their distinctive sound. Their performances not only mirror their love for their music, but also their love for each other. It’s clear to see how much they enjoy performing side-by-side, so in tune with each other, making for a uniquely entertaining show. Deemed “ones to watch” by Music Row critic, Robert Oermann, The Mann Sisters deliver their audiences well-crafted, life-inspired original music, with tight musical performances, keeping folks captivated and coming back for more.

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.

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

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.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

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

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

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

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

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

Rachel Pearl and Erika Chambers

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Join us for live music!

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

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

Suzanne Westenhoefer

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

She’s brave, bold and comic gold. The real deal in a post-modern world seeking to pump out reproductions, Suzanne Westenhoefer is the reigning shtick chick worth noting. Her individual style and unique sense of self set the stage for all walks of life – young, old, gay, straight, lesbian, bi, and every descriptor imaginable in between. When you’ve lived life, you talk about it. When you’re a comedienne living life, you really talk about it. For instance, how do you refer to your new girlfriend’s parents while updating your status on Facebook…at their house…over Christmas? In-laws doesn’t quite seem the appropriate term. Neither does out-laws (that might imply divorce – assuming you’re in a state that even allows marriage, much less divorce)…there isn’t really a term that seems appropriate. If you’re Suzanne, that’s not unusual. The woman is terribly inappropriate – and we love her for it. A lot has changed in the past year. On the one hand, you have a previously closeted girlfriend now in a very public relationship with one of the biggest lesbians in America. On the other, you have a gal with the gumption to quit smoking…while figuring out how to do so with the aforementioned stress-inducing situation. Add to the pot an attempt at aging gracefully and you’ve got yourself a comedy routine writing itself.

Prosperity Plus

Presented by Center for Spiritual Living Nashville at Center for Spiritual Living Nashville

Dr. Mitch Johnson will lead a 10-week course in prosperity consciousness building.  The "Prosperity Plus" course will show attendees how to build a new consciousness – and acceptance – of true abundance.  Participants are expected to tithe their time, talent and treasures.  The course workbook and accompanying audio CDs are $50 plus tax. “We deserve to live an abundant, prosperous, happy, fulfilling and successful life – simply because we exist,” said Johnson, a reverend for CSLN. “True abundance is not just having more material good in your life.  It is actually a deep spiritual awareness that God is the ultimate source of your good.” Attendees will discover strategies for positive living in uncertain times; ways to open oneself to a greater flow of good; how to generate thoughts and choices that lead to new results in life; and tools for living each day from a state of abundance and prosperity. The course will feature video presentations by Mary Morrissey, author of the best-selling books "No Less Than Greatness" and "Building Your Field of Dreams". Morrissey is the founder and CEO of LifeSOULutions, an international company providing programs and products that transform dreams into reality.

FEED ME: Psychedelic Journey Tour

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Jon Gooch aka Feed Me debuted in 2008 as the first external artist to be featured on Deadmau5’s revered mau5trap label. With his unique brand of hard-hitting, bass-heavy electronica, his first EP for the label in 2010 garnered him international acclaim. The 8-track ‘Feed Me’s Big Adventure’ immediately took Beatport by storm with six of the tracks hitting the top 10.

 

As the creature behind the production on ‘Midnight Run’ from Example’s third album ‘Playing in the Shadows’ and ‘Bleeding Out’ from Korn’s latest album he has showed his diverse skills in the studio. Next to his productions for others, his own 4-track ‘To The Stars’ EP and ‘Feed Me’s Escape From Electric Mountain’ have delved yet further into his inimitable sound, touching upon everything from electro house to dubstep. That being said, Jon is a true artist, drawing and designing all his own artwork and creating a full character within Feed Me.

At the beginning of 2013, Feed Me sold out a 20 date US tour where he took his colossal live show, a mega 20 foot LED “TEETH” structure, across the country, taking the Feed Me experience to a whole new stratosphere.  He then brought his his full set of teeth back home to a sell out London show where he first played material from his debut album ‘Calamari Tuesday’.

Feed Me’s summer festival season hit an almighty climax in 2013 as he closed the main stage Fuji Rocks in Japan following the legendary Bjork. He also appeared at numerous festivals across the globe sharing the stage with artists such as Foals, Stone Roses and Prodigy proving that Feed Me not only dominates the dance floors at electronic music festivals such as Creamfields and EDC, but his fan base spans the likes of UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as Exit in Serbia, to name a few.

Most recently Feed Me released his debut artist album ‘Calamari Tuesday’ on his very own brand-new label Sotto Voce. The album shot right up to Number 1 in the US dance charts and secured top spots in many other countries worldwide.  As Dancing Astronaut’s Michael Sundius put it - “The LP showcases Jon Gooch’s considerable production value and masterful genre-blending abilities; the extensive tracklist breathes life into the character of Feed Me, both solidifying and evolving the fiction into something very real and intensely compelling.”

Saving Abel w/ Story Of A Ghost

Presented by 12th & Porter at 12th & Porter

Since 2008 Saving Abel has embodied the definition of “Southern Rock.” Even before their “Self Titled” debut LP, they were barnstorming the country making fans everywhere they went by being themselves. Simple, down home, charming, country-boys with immeasurable talent that was destined to take them straight to the top. Their first single, “Addicted” did just that, reaching number one on several charts and the follow-up singles “18 Days” and “Drowning (Face Down)” helped sell over 750,000 copies of their debut album. They toured heavily in support of this album, playing with Buckcherry and Avenged Sevenfold, and later on Nickelback, in arenas across North America. Night after night, the boys would go back to the bus with their ears ringing from 15,000 fans screaming their lyrics.

Knowing that they would need something great to follow up with, the boys set out to write their sophomore album, “Miss America.” Topping the Active Rock and Hard Rock charts yet again with “Sex is Good” and “Stupid Girl (Only in Hollywood)” solidified Saving Abel’s place both on the radio and live. Setting out on their own for touring this time, Saving Abel headlined theaters around the country for almost 2 years non-stop. They toured with several artists and made a lot of friends along the way, but always kept their focus on the fans, and their eyes toward the future.

Not wanting to fall into a rut of making the third album sound like the first two, Saving Abel returned to their Mississippi origin, adding a depth and soul that can only come from their country roots. Using banjos, mandolins, and a healthy helping of moonshine Saving Abel, went into the studio with a mission to stick with “what they know best,” and wrote an emotional, soulful record that was still rooted in rock-n-roll, but highlighted their classic country roots. Listening to “Bringing Down The Giant” is as reminiscent of Hank Williams as it is of Elvis Presley. Songs like “Me and You” and “Pictures of Elvis” highlight their softer side while “Bringing Down The Giant” tackles a major issue in society today.

From day one, Saving Abel, has been an incredible supporter of the amazing men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. “18 Days," “Drowning (Face Down), and “Miss America” were all written and dedicated to the US Military. Since 2009, Saving Abel has had the honor of traveling to play for the troops in some of the most remote and dangerous places in the world. …Iraq, Quatar, Cuba, Japan, and India just to name a few. No matter where they are or what they are doing, no matter if it’s 5 minutes to show time, the boys in Saving Abel will ALWAYS stop what they are doing to acknowledge and thank a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine.

In the spring of 2013 Saving Abel, found themselves at a crossroads…. The Active Rock market was stagnant, and metal and pop acts were starting to dominate the charts. The country boys from Mississippi had a decision to make(,) rather than sit and wait for the industry to take a turn, Saving Abel decided to take matters into their own hands. They hired a new team (management, agent, road crew, and promotional staff), and set out on an acoustic tour with no agenda other than to play music together for the love of it. During that tour they released a new EP, “Crackin’ The Safe” on their own label “Hell No Pickin’”. A new attitude brought a fresh perspective and desire to honor their fans by doing nightly meet and greets and more station visits, acoustic shows on off nights etc than ever before.

In January of 2014 the band embarked on a new chapter, as singer Jared Weeks and drummer Michael McManus left to pursue solo careers. Saving Abel, working with their new manager Jeff Hanson (Creed, Paramore, Sevendust) also at the helm of their newly formed label, found Trash The Brand singer Scotty Austin and drummer Steven Pulley and asked them to join the band. Knowing that a lead singer change could have dire consequences, Austin immediately took to meeting every fan at every show and established that he was not just there to fill someone’s shoes, but rather he was there to create his own identity and relationship with the fans and take the band farther than they’d ever been while maintaining respect for the legacy that had been established.

Jason Null (guitar), Scott Bartlett (guitar) and Eric Taylor (bass) welcomed Steven and Scotty with open arms, and together the five of them have a renewed sense of purpose, which translates to an exciting energy both on and off the stage. The first two months of shows were sold out, and a new wave of enthusiasm seemed to take over the band’s shows, as well as their social networks. To take advantage of this enthusiasm the band has written new material and a new single is expected in March. A new album is planned for late Springs 2014 and the band plans to tour extensively for the foreseeable future.

As a foster parent, you can transform the life of a child simply by becoming the first person to have faith in her, the first person to care where he is, the first person to believe in what she can become.

Miley Cyrus: BANGERZ TOUR (POSTPONED) ft. Lily Allen

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

The April 18 and April 19 Miley Cyrus Bangerz tour dates at Bridgestone Arena and KFC YUM! Center have been postponed and rescheduled. Nashville’s show is now scheduled for August 7 and Louisville’s for August 9. Miley continues to be hospitalized due to a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. All tickets for the two shows will be honored on their new dates. Please stay tuned for the latest information at www.livenation.com or www.mileycyrus.com.

Details for Miley’s BANGERZ TOUR follow her surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live where she announced to fans that she would be launching a tour soon. The announcement on Saturday Night Live comes on the heels of her well-received appearance on the show as both host and musical performer on October 5 that was part of a series of headline-making appearances that supported the release of her new album, Bangerz, on RCA Records. Bangerz debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and the Digital Album Charts with over 270,000 albums sold. Additionally, during release week, Bangerz hit #1 on iTunes in over 70 countries. Both singles, “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop”, off Bangerz have already sold 4.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. “Wrecking Ball” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks. It became Miley’s first Billboard Hot 100 #1 and her fastest-flying top 10 on Radio Songs.

“Wrecking Ball” also hit #1 on Spotify where it reached the highest streams ever for any track in the U.S. beating the next highest week by nearly 500,000 plays. This exciting news came just two days after her music video for "Wrecking Ball" became the fastest music video ever to reach CERTIFIED status, VEVO's milestone for videos delivering 100 million views in only 6 days. Cyrus shattered the previous record which she held for “We Can’t Stop,” which was CERTIFIED by VEVO just 37 days after it premiered.

Bangerz has been getting rave reviews including Entertainment Weekly calling it “…utterly fresh, a pop blitz from a hip-hop blueprint, and proof that Miley won't settle for just shocking us.” US Weekly declared it “the year's most titillating pop explosion” awarding the album “4 stars (out of 4).”

Miley Cyrus announced that British pop singer, Lily Allen, will be joining her acclaimed BANGERZ TOUR on select dates this summer.

Jay Brannan

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

A Texas native turned New Yorker, Jay Brannan has been writing and performing his own sweet & sad folk songs, tempered with a healthy dose of humor, around the globe since 2006.

He also appeared as an actor in John Cameron Mitchell’s indie film sensation Shortbus, in which his song “Soda Shop” was the highest selling song on the film’s soundtrack album (released by Bright Eyes’ Team Love Records).

From there, Brannan released a string of albums, all of which topped the iTunes Singer/Songwriter & Billboard Heatseekers charts: goddamned, produced by Will Golden (Meiko, Michelle Branch); In Living Cover, a collection of 2 originals & 7 covers, recorded from a bedroom in his friend Drew Brody’s Brooklyn apartment; and Rob Me Blind, produced by the legendary David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, Lana Del Rey, etc.).

Brannan’s touring has taken him multiple times around the world, through the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, and Australia. This international touring is what inspired his 2013 EP release Around the World in 80 Jays, a collection of 9 international cover songs spanning 6 different languages.

Brannan returns to the road (and sky) this summer to promote his new album of acoustic originals, entitled Always, Then, & Now (available July 15).

Natural Child

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

A pioneer of rock music, Natural Child is a significant influence on the development of both the music and the attitude associated with the rock music lifestyle. With songs such as "Shamewalkin" (2009), "White People" (2011), "Ain't Gonna Stop" (2012) and "Let The Good Times Roll"(2012), Natural Child refined and developed rhythm and blues, psychedelia, and country into the major elements that make rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics successfully aimed to appeal to the early teenage market by using graphic and humorous descriptions of consumer culture, race, sex, devil weed, and life as a grown-ass man and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. The band's records are a rich storehouse of the essential lyrical, showmanship and musical components of rock and roll; and, in addition to White Fang, Gap Dream, The Strange Boys, and The Black Lips, a large number of significant popular-music groups have performed Natural Child songs. Though not technically accomplished, their musical style is distinctive - drawing on the influence of acts such as The Rolling Stones, Canned Heat, Willie Nelson, JJ Cale, and Waylon Jennings to produce a clear and exciting sound that many later guitar musicians will acknowledge as a major influence in their own style. In the film Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, Eric Clapton states 'If you wanna play rock and roll - or any upbeat number - and you want to take a guitar ride you will end up playing like Natural Child...because there is very little other choice. There's not a lot of other ways to play rock and roll other than the way Natty Child plays it; they've really laid the law down..." Keith Richards toldBest of Guitar Player "Child is my band. They was the ones who made me say 'I want to play guitar, Jesus Christ!'...Suddenly I knew what I wanted to do." Natural Child's showmanship has been influential on other rock legends, particularly their one-legged hop, duck walk, and the "fog-the-shit-out-of-the-stage-so-nobody-can-see" routine, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Julie Danielson talk and book signing

Presented by Parnassus Books at Parnassus Books

Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome local author and beloved blogger Julie Danielson for a discussion and signing of her new book, Wild Things! Acts of Mischief in Children's Literature.

Did Laura Ingalls cross paths with a band of mass murderers? Why was a Garth Williams bunny tale dubbed "integrationist propaganda"? For adults who are curious about children’s books and their creators, here are the little-known stories behind the stories. A treasure trove of information for a student, librarian, new parent, or anyone wondering about the post-Harry Potter book biz, Wild Things! draws on the combined knowledge and research of three respected and popular librarian-bloggers. Told in affectionate and lively prose, with numerous never-before-collected anecdotes, this book chronicles some of the feuds and fights, errors and secret messages found in children’s books and brings contemporary illumination to the warm-and-fuzzy bunny world we think we know.

Julie Danielson (Jules) conducts interviews and features of authors and illustrators at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, a children’s literature blog focused primarily on illustration and picture books. Julie received her Master’s in Information Sciences, with a focus on children’s librarianship. She has juried for the Society of Illustrators’ Original Art Award, as well as the BolognaRagazzi Awards for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy. She writes about picture books at Kirkus’ website, and she writes occasional picture book reviews for BookPage.

Snowpiercer

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

“An enormously ambitious, visually stunning and richly satisfying futuristic epic.” —Variety

Bong Joon-ho (THE HOST, MEMORIES OF MURDER) has become a cinematic superstar molding traditional genres to his visionary ends. Working with an all-star international cast and the biggest budget of his career, he gives us a blazingly original--and darkly funny--vision of the future. In this wild post-apocalyptic thriller, the planet has frozen, thanks to a botched attempt to reverse global warming, and all the surviving humans are packed aboard a self-sustaining train that endlessly circles the globe. But the train is rigidly divided by wealth and class, the downtrodden massed together in the rear and ripe for revolution. Led by Chris Evans, they begin to make their violent way to the front, where the master of the train awaits them. Is this science fiction, or an allegory of our times? (Synopsis from Los Angeles Film Festival)

Ida

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Making a film in his homeland for the very first time after building an international reputation with the acclaimed British films LAST RESORT and MY SUMMER OF LOVE, Polish auteur Pawel Pawlikowski has created a spare, stark, and beautifully directed drama that explores one of his country's most fraught, controversial and emotionally charged issues: the relations between Polish Catholics and Jews during the Nazi occupation. In the early 1960s, the young novitiate nun Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska) is about to take her vows, until a visit to her middle-aged aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza)—a former state prosecutor now reduced to the position of lowly rural magistrate—reveals a long-buried family secret. The two women undertake a journey to the countryside that doubles as a voyage into the past, into both the horrors of war and the iron-fisted autocracy that succeeded it. Gorgeously shot in black and white and using the 1.37:1 Academy ratio (the almost-square frame of classical cinema), IDA is "a poignant story powerfully told.... tender and bleak, funny and sad, superbly photographed in luminous monochrome: a sort of neo-new wave movie with something of the classic Polish film school and something of Truffaut, but also deadpan flecks of Béla Tarr and Aki Kaurismäki," writes Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian. (Synopsis courtesy of the Toronto International Film Festival)

Scott Miller

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

"Growing up, my family was isolated just by mere location. Turns out that doesn’t insulate you from any of the troubles all of us have. Then, a writing space I rented in Knoxville was a dingy basement apartment with one window. That window looked out into a parking lot in the back of a convenience store. Listen, what I saw…Trust me. It’s a big big world.” – Scott Miller

What does the term "big big world" mean for artist Scott Miller? For starters, you could assume that the epicenter of that "big big world" is the two-hundred acre cattle farm Miller grew up on and now works in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. And the gifted songwriter/performer's "big big world" recently stretched to include the aforementioned writing space in Knoxville, as well as the city block between the Nashville apartment of friend Patty Griffin to producer Doug Lancio’s Studio G! in East Nashville, where most of the work for Miller's new project was done.

 

But after listening to the new CD, BIG BIG WORLD (F.A.Y. Recordings), Miller's avid fans will realize that the phrase points to the artist's new musical horizons, which have stretched beyond the sphere of any of his previous work. BIG BIG WORLD was recorded, mixed and produced by Doug Lancio, with Lancio and Miller playing the parts of what would normally have been Miller’s backing band, The Commonwealth. Miller and Lancio met back in 2007 when Scott opened for Patty Griffin's CHILDREN RUNNING THROUGH tour while Doug was bandleader and playing guitar for Griffin. Miller and Lancio struck up a friendship and started working on Miller's 2009 release FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, but when Lancio took thegig playing guitar for John Hiatt, the record was finished with producer/keyboardist Michael Webb.

 

Miller wrote BIG BIG WORLD to bits and pieces of music that Lancio recorded when he wasn't touring with Hiatt, and when Miller wasn't out on the road himself. For two working musicians this was not an easy task: "When we could get our schedules to match we would work at forging both kinds of music: adult AND contemporary!" Miller pointed out.

Boyhood

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of childhood and adolescence as seen through the eyes of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before and is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to family life.

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 Arts Company presents works by Daryl Thetford; Sculptures by Paul and Dorothy Craig

Presented by The Arts Company at The Arts Company

The Arts Company Introduces The World of Daryl Thetford, a new series of limited-edition photographs by Daryl Thetford.  In this exhibit, the artist debuts a variety of original limited-edition photographs that range from culturally familiar individual pieces to more esoteric images based on man's inner struggle with modern society and the human sense of isolation in the noise of the modern world.

Art, Astronomy, and Light:Clay Sculpture by Paul and Dorothy Craig will also open during the First Saturday Art Crawl Downtown. In this exhibit, the artworks are unique, hand-made ceramic and stoneware sculptures made by this artistic husband and wife duo. Because of Paul Craig’s extensive background in science, his pieces mix the art of clay with the science of Earth and Sky. Crafted stoneware, the pieces are also working scientific instruments: clocks, calendars, star charts, Sun trackers and space-scapes. Dorothy Craig's wheel thrown pottery is organic without reflecting one particular theme. Her collection of luminaries include, pieces using leaves, shells and other natural objects. In addition, many of her pieces are functional and aid in bread proofing, mixing, and battering.  Meet the Craigs and preview their work at 5:00 pm Saturday, July 5, just ahead of the July First Saturday Art Crawl Downtown. Click here for information.

The exhibitions will continue through August 8, during regular gallery hours, which are 11:00am - 5:00pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

Snap On 2&4 with Monica Ramey ft. the Beegie Adair Trio

Presented by Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop

Please join us as we welcome back to the Jazz Cave vocalist Monica Ramey with the Beegie Adair Trio. Their performances have consistently energized sold out audiences. Adair's albums have dominated the jazz charts and album sales while Ramey's sophomore album, produced by Adair and bassist Roger Spencer, are creating a reinvigorated excitement among the jazz world. Joining Ms. Ramey and the trio will be trumpet master George Tidwell and drummer Jim White.

“There was a brief period in the late 1950s and very early ’60s when Capitol sagely paired George Shearing with a succession of the label’s top vocalists, including Peggy Lee, Dakota Staton, Nancy Wilson and Nat King Cole. The results were uniformly wonderful, setting a standard for sophistication that has, until now, never quite been equaled. But in Monica Ramey and Beegie Adair, Shearing and company have finally met their match.”
– Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes Magazine

Michael Feinstein calls the pairing of Beegie and Monica “a master class on how to interpret timeless songs with style, taste and a swinging contemporary sensibility.” Guitarist Anthony Wilson declares Ramey “sings with grace and elegance” and “uses these abilities to deliver the world of the song first to your ears (sometimes it’s like she’s singing directly to you), then to a much deeper place where you can really feel it.” Pianist Chris Walters finds Ramey’s music “a miracle – at times controlled and concise, at others, fervent and daring, all the while abundant with wisdom.”

Jazz fans around the world agree with critics about The Beegie Adair Trio’s sophisticated and listenable jazz performances, and have made their recordings among the biggest sellers in the jazz world. Under the guidance of her esteemed mentors and friend, Ramey is quickly catching the attention of jazz fans, critics and musicians.

Annotations: Authors at Cheekwood - J.T. Ellison

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

Parnassus Books and Cheekwood Botanical Gardens invites Nashville’s community of readers and book lovers to visit each month for a series of literary events in the garden. Join us as celebrated local authors share their stories, describe their process, and offer ‘behind-the-text’ accounts of their works.

This month, we'll host J.T. Ellison, the author of When Shadows Fall. J.T. Ellison is the bestselling author of eleven critically acclaimed novels, including Edge of Black, and her work has been published in more than twenty countries. Her novel The Cold Room won the International Thriller Writers Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original. She is also the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Final Cut. She lives in Nashville with her husband.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Samantha Owens thought life was finally returning to normal after she suffered a terrible personal loss. Settling into her new job at Georgetown University, the illusion is shattered when she receives a disturbing letter from a dead man imploring her to solve his murder. There's only one catch. Timothy Savage's death was so obviously the suicide of a demented individual that the case has been closed. When Sam learns Savage left a will requesting she autopsy his body, she feels compelled to look into the case. Sam's own postmortem discovers clear signs that Savage was indeed murdered. And she finds DNA from a kidnapped child whose remains were recovered years earlier. The investigation takes Sam into the shadows of a twenty-year-old mystery that must be solved to determine what really happened to Timothy Savage. Nothing about the case makes sense but it is clear someone is unwilling to let anyone, especially Samantha Owens, discover the truth.

Ray Wylie Hubbard

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

As a music lover of impeccable taste, odds are that you’re already looking forward to spending the better part of the next hour – and several more after that – getting rather obsessively familiar with this latest serving of song and groove from Ray Wylie Hubbard. Having no doubt played his last album, 2010’s A. Enlightenment, B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C.), to digital bits – and committed to memory such earlier chestnuts as Snake Farm, Growl, Eternal and Lowdown, Crusades of the Restless Knights, and maybe even everything else going all the way back to that 1975 Cowboy Twinkies LP that Hubbard himself would rather you forget – you probably can’t wait to tuck into The Grifter’s Hymnal and leisurely savor it from end to end.

This, of course, is how things should be. But a couple of variables could throw the above plan off the rails a bit. Suppose, for instance, that the damn Mayans were right, and what’s left of 2012 is all the time we have left, period. Or, maybe despite that aforementioned impeccable music taste, you’ve somehow managed to make it this far into the 21st century without ever hearing of this Hubbard fellow. Grim scenarios, yes, but fear not; because whether you’re short on time due to an impending apocalypse or simply need a tidy introduction to bring you up to speed, the opening track on The Grifter’s Hymnal, “Coricidin Bottle,” tells you everything you need to know in just under two minutes. What it tells you about The Grifter’s Hymnal is that the record rocks. And what it tells you about Ray Wylie Hubbard is, he’s the kind of scrapper poet with the devil-may-care wherewithal to write both “lay down a groove like a monkey getting’ off” and “shakes the mortal coil round my amaranthine soul” into the same song – and the lethal charm and chops to pull it off.

 

“This really was a very special record to me,” Hubbard says. “It wasn’t easy, and some of it really was a struggle, but it was fun. I think each record to me has been a struggle in a way, and I like it that way. I like it that they’re all hard to do, because I think that makes them all have more value to me. It makes me kind of reach for a better part of myself. It keeps me from settling.”

Kyle Kinane

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Kyle Kinane has been up and at it for almost half his life, mostly searching for what "it" might be. He has performed in the Leicester, Vancouver, Washington D.C., Portland, Just For Laughs/Chicago and the USCAF/Aspen comedy festivals, and has been on the TV via "Last Call with Carson Daly," "The Very Funny Show" on TBS, "Live at Gotham," "Comedy Central Presents" and "The World Stands Up" on the BBC. He was called "bleak and misanthropic" by the London Evening Standard, which he still feels may be a compliment. He is a comedian.

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Making whimsical surf-pop may seem like a daunting task when you live states away from the nearest beach, but guitarist and vocalist Jared Corder was determined to make the music reminiscent of his California birthplace.  The band (inspired after Corder's mild success with former band, Oh No No), was always intended to be a 3-piece: Jared on guitar and vocals, Andy Herrin on drums, with female harmony vocals reminiscent of 1960s west coast beach pop.

Capitol Steps

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

The Capitol Steps are a troupe of Congressional staffers-turned-comedians who travel the States satirizing the very people and places that once employed them. The Steps perform over 500 shows a year all over the country.
Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill, some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there’s never a shortage of material. Says Elaina Newport, “Typically, the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call a two-party system.”

My Best Little Buddy Book Signing to Benefit Nashville Cat Rescue

Presented by Woodcraft Music at Pet Supermarket Donelson

Part of a continuing series of book signings to benefit Nashville Cat Rescue. Songwriter turned author Tom Templeman will be signing and selling copies of his book, My Best Little Buddy, at the Donelson Pet Supermarket, with 20% of the profits benefitting Nashville Cat Rescue. Those who cannot attend in person can purchase the book online at www.mybestlittlebuddy.com, and their books will be signed and mailed first-class to them by the author.

Recetly featured in Cat Fancy magazine and Channel 5's Talk of the Town, the heartwarming story of the 17 year relationship between the author and a little grey tabby cat named Tiger has captured hearts and high praise from readers, bloggers, and top Amazon reviewers. Here are brief excerpts from just a couple of reviews:

"Templeman writes from the heart, and his simple but powerful prose and the plentiful photos make the reader feel like he or she is right there with Tiger and his family. Perhaps that is the true magic of sharing such a seemingly ordinary story of a special cat: by sharing Tiger with the world, he becomes everyone's cat."  Ingrid King, The Conscious Cat

"This very well written book is in a class of its own! It is a story of love and trust and one that will truly inspire you. It has certainly inspired me."  Daisy S, Hall of Fame Top 10 Amazon Reviewer

David Gray

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

David Gray has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas. Gray’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and countless accolades. His 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray's 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Line left off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots. Foundling debuted at #9 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, marking Gray's highest release position of his career and was met with critical praise by Entertainment Weekly who described it as “all warm arrangements and real emotion,” while USA Today said “ ‘A Moment Changes Everything’  is his most infectious single since 2000's ‘Babylon.’ ”

Christopher Bost: Beyond-New California Landscapes

Presented by The Red Arrow Gallery at The Red Arrow Gallery

As an adolescent, Christopher Bost spent countless hours in the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.  A permanent collection Frank Stella painting often caught his attention.  Elusive to him, it always seemed quiet in the layout of the room.  A decade later the work finally resonated.  He realized what had always been present to him.  A pattern, a pattern that he found, laid his path between an idealized thought to a tangible work.

For his third solo exhibition at The Red Arrow Gallery, Christopher brings Beyond-New California Landscapes.  Paintings that reference the physical elements of land and water, best understood as color. Stripe upon stripe, the work reaches towards the visceral experience of the landscape. Patterns appear and begin to describe gentle steps, one plane farther away, another past that. Looking, we are called to move into and out of these surfaces, engaging in a meditative process.  His work is both abstract and figurative, made up of repetitive patterns that form sharp windows or constellations.   Bost says his paintings “speak to the sensation of being present.”

Christopher Bost is a Mid-Westerner by birth and has lived and worked in the Mojave Desert and Bay Area of California for the last 10 years. He holds a BFA from The Atlanta College of Art, has shown in numerous galleries and is included in permanent collections across the country.

Kyndon Oakes and Friends

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

For a guy who didn’t start playing guitar until age 18, Kyndon Oakes looks and sounds like an artist and songwriter who’s been singing and playing his entire life. That’s a rare gift, one that shows the natural ability, incredible work ethic, and competitive nature of this former 3-sport star from Independence, Kansas who also just happens to look like a movie star.In a country radio format with an overwhelmingly female audience, that’s always a good thing. So is Kyndon’s ability to write and sing radio-friendly country songs such as the new rocking country anthem “Drive” or the romantic “Boardwalk.” One of Oakes’s frequent co-writers is Susie Brown of the breakout Warner Nashville star duo The Janedear Girls.“Independence had a small-town feel. It has maybe 9.000 people,” Kyndon says of his hometown in a September telephone interview. “Everyone in my family is in banking except me. I loved hunting, fishing, and playing sports.” Singing was another passion for Kyndon.

Closer by Patrick Marber

Presented by Bongo After Hours Theatre at Bongo After Hours Theatre

Bethany Langford, Belmont alum, has chosen Closer to be the first show of this budding company’s upcoming season. In this drama, Marber comments on the brutal truths of love and sex. This play follows the story of four characters over a five-year span. Dan, the obituarist has the “moment of his life” when he witnesses a beautiful waif struck down by a taxi in the middle of London. The relationship that they form will affect their own future and the future of another unlikely pair, Larry and Anna. These four characters strive to fill their individual voids by seeking intimacy with each other. A stripper, a dermatologist, a photographer, and an obituarist are all on a mission to change their circumstance, while stepping over each other to do so. Closer opened at the Cottesloe Theatre in London and won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New play in 1998. In 1999, when it premiered on Broadway, Closer received the New York Drama Critics award for Best Foreign Play.

Nashville Sunday Night: honeyhoney w/ Kristina Train

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

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

Perhaps sometime in the early 90’s Ben Jaffe and Suzanne Santo passed each other on a turnpike or east coast beltway in transit on a family road trip getaway. Perhaps their families stopped at the same Maryland welcome center and 9 year old Ben and Suzanne stared at the same bag of cheezits in a vending machine, turned to each other and said “ Hey homey, let’s meet up in Los Angeles in ten years and start a folk band that will turn into a folk rock band that will turn into a full throttle rock all the way band.”

Either way, the coalescence of HONEYHONEY has been nothing short of a predetermined soul contract amongst two alien hybrids that came here to spread sweet jams, inappropriate stage banter and insightful beliefs and thoughts via the clubs, festivals, theaters, internets, and Joe Rogan podcasts of the world.

Their menagerie of sounds covers many traditional genres ranging from blues/rock and folk, to hip hop and jungle cat, which can explain why they’ve toured alongside the diverse likes of Sheryl Crow, James Morrison, Christina Perri, Trampled by Turtles, Xavier Rudd and Jake Bugg. They have a tendency to fit in everywhere from their performances for the bootyshort-wearing throngs of Coachella to the lawnchair-toting masses of the Newport Folk Festival.Their love for the music they create and their friendship in this life are like a sacred egg that continues to be incubated with the utmost tender care.

As they are in the middle of recording their third record, the rumors of it’s evolved eargasmic potential have been spreading like a fungus that you won’t want to get rid of. It has been said that you can expect a twist on their previous album releases that brings them to the level known as “ballin”.

In their passionate endeavor to spread love and joy through their tunes, the now 20 something year old Ben and Suzanne have honored and appreciated their journey of rock thus far and will continue to do so until the mothership calls them home. You can expect to see them out on the road in the U.S. this summer and experience their third record in late 2014.

Until then, Aho Mitakuye Oyasin.

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.

The Farewell Tour of Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Although they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the '80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. Where their contemporaries built on the legacy of Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Kiss, Queensrÿche constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of post-Van Halen metal and '70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. After releasing a handful of ignored albums, the band began to break into the mainstream with the acclaimed 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime. Its follow-up, Empire, was the group's biggest success, selling over two million copies due to the hit single "Silent Lucidity." Queensrÿche never sustained that widespread popularity -- like most late-'80s metal bands, their audience disappeared after the emergence of grunge. Nevertheless, they retained a large cult following well into the ensuing decades.

One of the best viewing locations around Nashville for a show like this is along the Natchez Trace! Come on out and bring your family and friends.

The waning full moon will make the stars difficult to view, but not impossible.

When: Tuesday, August 12th (anytime after sunset)
Actual peak time is August 12th after midnight
Where: Natchez Trace Parkway
Near Mile Marker 426.3 (past Garrison Creek exit). Look for the "Old Natchez" sign and turn left into the viewing area.

Music City Medium Cindy Kaza

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

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

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

Amanda Shires and Andrew Combs

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Just in case the title alone wasn’t a dead give away, Amanda Shires’ Down Fell the Doves is not a record for the faint of heart, faith or spirit. Not that anyone who heard her last album would have expected such. Carrying Lighting, the critically acclaimed 2011 breakthrough that put Shires on the map as one of Americana music’s most arresting new voices (and Texas Music magazine’s 2011 Artist of the Year), was a kudzu-tangled web of frayed heartstrings and combustible desire that revealed the one-time “little fiddle player from Lubbock” to be a grown woman unafraid to “get wrecked in love” and dish out the same with keen poetic insight and unnervingly mature, femme-fatale conviction. But as striking as Lightning was, Down Fell the Doves (Shires’ debut for Lightning Rod Records) is where the gloves really come off.

Little River Band

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Little River Band was the first Australian band to successfully conquer foreign markets from an Australian base. Within eight months of their birth, LRB had already scored three Australian Top 20 singles and two Top Ten albums. In 1976, after their self-titled debut album was released in the USA, the long grind of 13 US tours in eight years had begun.

By 1982 they became the only act – from anywhere – to have a top ten US single for six consecutive years. Headlining their own major shows in America, and touring internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, America, Heart, Boz Scaggs, Fleetwood Mac, and The Eagles was a huge learning curve that honed LRB into one of the finest live bands in the world.

Record success ran alongside – total record sales around the world have eclipsed the 30 million mark...16 hit singles by 1985, as well as gold, platinum, and multi-platinum album sales awards. All-told LRB have notched up eight top 10 singles in the US, where two of their songs, Reminiscing and Lady, have more than 9 million radio plays between them.

Film: "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

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

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

In the Depression-era South, three escapees from a Mississippi prison chain gang, Everett Ulysses McGill, sweet and simple Delmar, and the perpetually angry Pete, attempt to return home. They make a hasty run for their lives and end up on an incredible journey filled with challenging experiences and colorful characters in this modern-day spin on Homer's "The Odyssey". Directed by Joel Coen. Starring George Clooney, John Turturro, John Goodman, and Holly Hunter. Rated PG-13. 93 minutes. 2000.

Star Party - August

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Bells Bend Outdoor Center

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.

Boston - Heaven on Earth Tour

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

Tom Scholz' band BOSTON will embark on a highly anticipated summer tour following the successful release of their latest album, Life, Love & Hope. The tour will kick off on June 5 at the Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL. Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON will feature the personnel and music from their highly acclaimed 2012 tour with some exciting additions. The band prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the exceptional sound that is faithful to their studio recordings.

BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," and "Smokin'," rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don't Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, "Amanda." With over 31 million albums sold to date, their music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.

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

Johnny Fritz w/ Roger Alan Wade & Birdcloud

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Nashville songwriter Jonny Fritz’s work ethic and boldness have paid off in spades. It’s been a big year for Jonny, with opening stints for Alabama Shakes, Deer Tick, Dawes, Shooter Jennings and rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and kudos from CMT and Rolling Stone, among many others. He’s signed a deal with indie label ATO Records (he actually signed the deal with gravy at Nashville landmark Arnold’s Country Kitchen) and Loose Records in Europe, and his third full-length album, Dad Country, is set for release on April 16, 2013 (April 15 in Europe).

Produced by Jonny and Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, recorded at Jackson Browne’s Los Angeles studio and finished up in Music City, USA, this is a breakthrough album, balancing Fritz’s earthy trademark humor and unfiltered worldview with some of his darkest material to date. The album has a Nashville sound kept aloft on a sure Southern Californian wind, no doubt from the influence of his backing band: Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, Tay Strathairn and Wylie Gelber of Dawes, Jackson Browne, and his Nashville band of Spencer Cullum Jr, Joshua Hedley, Taylor Zachry and Jerry Pentecost.

World Premiere: Cindy & Ella by Sara Gaddis and JP Schuffman

Presented by Nashville Stagecraft at West End United Methodist Church

 A new play by local Nashville playwrights, CINDY&ELLA is based on the ancient pan-cultural fairy tale of Cinderella. But this adaptation is a far cry from the popular Disney cartoon. Cindy&Ella follows three women coping with life in an isolated Oklahoma farming community at the height of the Dust Bowl. The traumatic death of young Cindy Wicket's mother has left her on the brink of madness, and when her manipulative Aunt Eudora arrives claiming ownership of the home a violent battle of wills ensues. Meanwhile, Eudora's daughter Ella must wrestle with her own desperation as she watches her hopes for a future vanishing beneath acres of dead corn and her mother's all-consuming greed. When a handsome young man from Chicago arrives offering to buy the land, the stage is set for a final conflict over control of the homestead and the lives of all who live there.

Located in the 4th Story Theater at WEUMC.

Futurebirds

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Baba Yaga, the second full-length album by Athens, GA's Futurebirds, marks a milestone in the continuous evolution of the eclectic ensemble. The 13-song album finds Futurebirds - Thomas Johnson, Carter King, Dennis Love, Brannen Miles, Daniel Womack, and Payton Bradford (who has since left the lineup to pursue a non-musical career path)  - delivering an expansive yet intimate set that takes the band's trademark mix of earthily accessible songcraft and free-spirited experimentation into inspired new territory.

Like the band that made it, Baba Yaga defies easy categorization, boasting a beguiling blend of warmly catchy tunes, stirringly evocative lyrics, distinctive sonic textures and unexpected melodic twists. The music is both intense and uplifting, capturing a good deal of the soaring, primal, sweat-soaked spirit of Futurebirds' live shows, which have already won the group a rabidly devoted fan base and a reputation as a singularly inspired, bravely unpredictable performing unit.

Shueh-li Ong

Presented by Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville at Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville

Shueh-li Ong will return to Nashville with a show, after a successful tour of the east coast.

Ong is best known internationally for her work as founder and leader of synthpop band, Xenovibes, a Moog international artist, and, as Singapore’s theremin diva.

Ong is a world-class thereminist. The theremin is acknowledged as the hardest instrument to learn, because it is played with minute finger gestures in space, with no touching.

Ong records in her own studio and has produced four albums to date; her latest “A Working Title” recorded and released in the Music City, where Ong has lived since 2010.

Her music is described as modern fusion synthpop. Her style, distinguished by her use of the ethereal theremin, exotic synth hooks, rustic tin-whistle, plucky guqin and rich vocal harmonies to create sometimes a poignant ballad, other times a luscious instrumental.

The Daily Vault said “It is abundantly clear that Ong has many talents, a gift for sound, and the potential for greatness.”

"An inspired artist who has brought fresh ideas in the theremin field.” said ThereminVox of Italy.

“A truly amazing talent!” Arts Monthly Australia

Ong is looking forward to playing for her Nashville family!

Rodney Perry

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Warm and friendly is how you feel once you greet the welcoming smile of comedian Rodney Perry in person, and after only minutes of being in his presence the smiles turn to hearty laughter as his gift is to entertain. Born in Chicago and raised in Monroe Louisiana, the road to stardom has not always been paved with fun and laughs. But whatever his surroundings Perry has always used comedy to pave his way to success.
Rodney served his country for eight years as a member of the United States Navy. Serving two tours of duty took Rodney to New Orleans and to the Bay Area, which prepared him for the entertainment industry and for life. He would perform his duties as Yeoman Second Class by day and perform his sidesplitting comedy shows by night. Perry came to a crossroad in 1998, when he had to choose between continuing his Navy career or making Stand-Up Comedy a career. He chose the latter. Rodney, his wife and their children packed their things and headed to Hollywood. Actually, Inglewood.
Upon exiting the Navy Perry was thrust into the work force. Comedy was not paying the bills, yet. Perry did it all. Apartment Manager, Secretary, Data Entry Clerk, Temporary Employee for a Modeling Agency and the list goes on and on. He did all the things that a budding young comedian does. Everything, except the Comedy career that he had moved to Los Angeles for. All that changed during a temporary assignment at the Veterans Administration. During his week at the VA Rodney befriended an amputee. One day he asked Perry; “What are you doing here?” and “Why aren’t you doing what you were set on this earth to do?” That was the wake-up call he needed. Rodney began doing any and everything in the world of comedy. He was an audience warm-up, a radio personality, a writer, and mostly a full fledged Professional Stand-Up Comedian.

"Two By Two"

Presented by Cathedral Players at Cathedral of the Incarnation

Two By Two is the story of Noah’s preparations for the Great Flood and its aftermath. Besides having trouble convincing people of the upcoming flood, Noah struggles trying to keep his chaotic family together. Two By Two is a Broadway musical with a book by Peter Stone, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and music by Richard Rodgers. Based on Clifford Odets's play The Flowering Peach.

Richard Rogers entered his seventh decade of writing for the theater with this freshly telling the biblical story of Noah. It seems that the building of the park was only the first of Noah’s many daunting challenges in a journey that wasn’t always smooth sailing. By turns inspirational and hilarious, we discover that being chosen by God for great things does not necessarily simplify the daily demands made of a father and husband. It’s good fun from The Good Book and when the land Drive, man and beast alike are invited to go forth and prosper in a bright New World.

Directed by Joe Layton, the production opened on November 10, 1970 at the Imperial Theatre, where it ran for ten months. The opening night cast included Danny Kaye, Marilyn Cooper, Joan Copeland, Harry Goz, Madeline Kahn, Tricia O'Neil, and Walter Willison.

Nashville Symphony Chorus to Hold New Member Auditions

Presented by Nashville Symphony at TBD

The Nashville Symphony Chorus, fresh off a 50th anniversary season that included a number of high-profile performances in Music City and a guest appearance at Cincinnati’s renowned May Festival, will be holding its next round of new member auditions in August for individuals interested in joining the ensemble. The all-volunteer Chorus, which was formed in 1963, is comprised of more than 200 singers representing every part of Middle Tennessee community. Auditions will be held at Schermerhorn Symphony Center August 16-17 under the direction of Nashville Symphony Chorus director Kelly Corcoran.

Candidates should prepare a solo selection (art song, solo from an oratorio, etc.) no longer than three minutes in length, which they will sing alone with piano accompaniment, and each singer may be asked to sight-read and/or perform an aural recall exercise. Singers will be graded on pitch, accuracy and intonation; rhythmic accuracy; dynamic control, phrasing, expressiveness and style; diction and vowel production; and tone quality, resonance, freedom and control. Vocal range and volume are less important in auditions than accuracy, musicality and tonal consistency.

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.

Rachel Pearl and Erika Chambers

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Join us for live music!

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"

On The Stage Featuring The Mabels, Anthony Adams and the Nite Owls and more

Presented by 12th & Porter at 12th & Porter

 Don't miss On The Stage Featuring The Mabels, Anthony Adams and the Nite Owls, Scarletta, Steve Everett, and LEWIS, hosted by Lauren Adelle. Proceeds go to the Make A Wish Foundation, TN

Scarletta: Scarletta is a country/rock band from Nashville, TN with hair-raising harmonies and unforgettable hooks. YouTube -www.youtube.com/user/ScarlettaTrio

Anthony Adams and the Nite Owls: If Jason Isbell and Ray Lamontagne had a singer-songwriter love child, it might very well be Anthony Adams. His soul-baring vocals are surpassed only by the quality of his writing. From the simplicity of Moon, to the hard swing of Honey, and the narrative in Willie McGee and Soldier's Lament, you can't help but think you are listening to the first of many albums to come. While Anthony's talent alone could carry the record, The Nite Owls provide the perfect backdrop, offering a unique mix of cello, violin, harmonica/sax, slide guitar and bass, and Jenn Palmer Harrison's sparing, but perfectly placed backup vocals.

Honor By August & The Gallery w/ Mikey Wax

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

For acclaimed modern rock quartet Honor By August there is a lot in a name. The “August” in the Washington, D.C.-based band’s name refers to another interpretation of the word: to inspire awe or admiration. Taken as a whole, “Honor By August” means earning honor by doing something admirable or awe-inspiring. “The name informs our music in several ways. We all believe in doing things the right way, with integrity, and making music that comes from a place of true inspiration,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Pearsall.

Immersion Into Art Professionalism w/ Andrea Zieher

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space

Andrea Zieher, of ZieherSmith in New York, has been featured in New York Magazine's annual "Influentials" issue, named among the "Power Couples in the Art World" by ArtInfo. She will be hosting a month of film screenings, workshops and portfolio reviews in Nashville for the month of August.

Opening Reception of Short Films Thursday, August 7, 6:00pm-7:00pm.  We invite you to attend a curated screening of short films to introduce this month of workshops and portfolio reviews.

Elevator Speech Workshop Tuesday, August 12, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Not just for the visual artist, successful creative professionals in all fields benefit from having an elevator speech handy. The "elevator speech" is about delivering an effective spur-of-the-moment summary in the time span of an elevator ride - 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Be prepared to convey evocative ideas about your work (without images) when you meet a curator, collector or critic at a social gathering or otherwise. This is different from a formal artist's statement. We encourage visual artists, curators, playwrights, journalists, filmmakers, and other art professionals to attend.

Website Workshop Thursday, August 14, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Websites have become an extremely important tool for artists, whether or not they have gallery representation. Get perspective on how to best represent yourself as an artist to your target audience (dealers, curators, collectors or all of the above) and broaden your exposure in the art world. The images of artwork are not the only thing that speaks to what kind of artist you are. The look and organization of the site conveys an unspoken message in itself and can affect your success. This workshop will also benefit those who have yet to build a website.

Individual Portfolio Review for the Visual Artist Monday, August 18, 6:00pm-8:00pm, and Wednesday, August 20, 10:00am-12:00pm, 25-minute appointments. Each appointment will be a candid and constructive portfolio review with dealer Andrea Zieher. We ask that you bring a portfolio, either digital or physical. If digital, bring images of your work on a USB drive or laptop. You may also choose to have a website review. Critique can focus both on the work and the artist's presentation.

Due to the intimate setting of these workshops, seating is limited. Reserve your spot today.

Andrea Zieher is co-owner and co-director of ZieherSmith, a New York gallery specializing in emerging and contemporary artists working in all media. Established in Chelsea in 2003, the gallery is regularly reviewed by the press, including The New York Times, Artforum and Art in America, among others, and has participated in over 30 art fairs internationally, including Art Basel Miami Beach. From 2006-2010, Zieher served as President of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) and oversaw both the organization and its prestigious annual art fair.

Open Auditions for the Nashville Singers

Presented by Nashville Singers, Inc. at Whitworth Memorial Baptist Church

Dear Prospective Chorister,

We are thrilled that you are considering singing with Nashville Singers. We know some folks may find an audition to be stressful, so we have prepared this primer to help you better understand what to expect and make you feel more at ease with the process.

While Nashville Singers is an amateur chorus, we make every attempt to strive for a polished musical product. Therefore, while we don’t have the expectation that our singers be of “professional” caliber, we do require singers to demonstrate certain musical and vocal proficiencies so that they will be able to keep pace with our rehearsals and make a positive contribution to our artistic goals. All members should be so skilled as to be able to memorize all their notes and words within 30 days of being introduced to a piece of music. Part-predominant learning tracks are usually provided to assist with this process.

Upon arrival at one of our rehearsals, guests interested in membership will be given a very brief vocal evaluation to determine their vocal range. This will allow us to find the best fit for each singer within the four voice parts.

Every prospective member interested in joining the chorus is required to audition. This audition is usually not conducted by the Director of Music.

Here are the basic components of the audition process:

Range: Those auditioning will be asked to start singing a scale from the lowest note in their range on a "La" vowel all the way to the very top of their range.

Vocal Quality: The singer performs a song of their choice a cappella.

Intervals: The person conducting the audition plays on a piano or sings twelve different sets of 3-5 note intervals. The singer is asked to mimic these notes and intervals correctly.

Ability to Harmonize: The person conducting the audition will play the melody line of a familiar song like "You Are My Sunshine" on the piano. The singer will be asked to woodshed or improvise a harmony part "above" the melody line from start to finish. He will then be asked to improvise a harmony part "below" the melody line from start to finish. Having all singers able to harmonize is critical as the repertoire and arrangements of the chorus often pass the melody line to the other parts.

Rhythm: The person conducting the audition sings or plays on the piano a series of different rhythms. The singer is asked to (sing) mimic each of these rhythms.

Sing a Song in a Quartet: The candidate sings a song of his choice (with or without sheet music) from the existing chorus repertoire with three others singers.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the first thing I should do?
A: The first thing to do to prepare for the audition is to do your research about the group. Find out everything you can about the way the chorus operates: especially the time commitment, expenses, expectations of the membership, etc. This will help you know exactly what you are getting into. Talk to one or more current singers to find out what Nashville Singers means to them. Attend a performance if you have not already done so. Next, send an email to membership@nashvillesingers.org to introduce yourself and make plans to attend one of our rehearsals. We usually encourage prospective members to attend one of our meetings before scheduling an audition. If you have questions that are not answered here, we will be happy to answer them for you.

Q: What do I need to prepare for the audition - What does the audition consist of?
A: You do NOT need to prepare anything. All you need to do is show up at your appointed time. You will meet individually with a member of the music team. He will have you run through some scales and vocal exercise to evaluate your vocal range and ability. You will be asked to sing a familiar song and to execute a few other vocal exercises.

Q: Should I be nervous?
A: No. The audition is private and is non-competitive. It is designed to evaluate your voice, not whether you can out-sing anyone. There are many skill levels represented in each chorus. However, you will need basic musical ability to be a singing member. At a minimum, you will need to be able to match a pitch that is played on the piano as well as be able to repeat a basic rhythmic pattern. The person conducting the audition will make that determination when meeting with you individually. We know auditions are never actually "fun," but we promise to be welcoming and encouraging because we know it is always uncomfortable. We want you to do your best and will make it as painless as humanly possible.

Q: How will I know if I've been accepted as a singing member?
A: The auditioner usually makes their decision at the conclusion of the audition. If you are not yet ready to be a singing member, you may be asked to join our staff or become an associate member. We include the staff in all activities except singing.

Q: What will happen after the audition?
A: Once your dues are paid, you will be given access to the "members only" section of this website where you are are encouraged to download and print out a copy of the Chorus Member Manual, which contains lots of detailed information. One of the most important documents is the "Expectations of Membership" which must be read, signed and returned with your completed application. New members will be assigned a "Chorus Buddy" who will help answer your questions during your first quarter. This “Buddy” is a more seasoned performer who will provide you with preliminary information about schedules, rehearsal formats, and an overview of how the chorus operates.

AVERY SUNSHINE: CD Release Concert with special guest Mike Hicks

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Avery*Sunshine is without a doubt one of the most dynamic voices on the
creative music scene, known for her invigorating and combustible live
performances, compelling and revealingly honest song writing and impeccable
instrument. The earthy and charming singer who has lent her vocals to the
silver screen and collaborated with the likes of Roy Ayers, Will Downing,
and Musiq Soulchild, has also lent her choral directing and choirs to a few
of the live performances from Michael Buble, David Foster, Anthony Hamilton,
and Jennifer Holiday. In 2005 she lent her voice to the soundtrack for
Paramount Pictures; The Fighting Temptations, and in 2005 she was hired as
lead keyboardist for Tyler Perry's stage play Meet the Browns. In 2007, she
was sought out by Grammy- and Tony Award-winning vocal powerhouse Jennifer
Holliday to be choral director for the theatrical production of Dreamgirls
during the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta. Avery*Sunshine has
also had the distinction of performing at the Democratic National Convention
in Denver, CO and four private events during the 2009 Inauguration of
President Barack Obama. As home in a variety of musical contexts, she has
also sung background for gospel icon Yolanda Adams.
The SunRoom is Avery*Sunshine's 2nd full length. It's one of those albums
that transports you both musically and emotionally. From organic soulful
in-the-pocket grooves, sublime ballads and exuberant up-tempo numbers, the
vocals shine throughout, the production is tight and the songwriting is
authentic and thought provoking. All of the material on the CD was
co-written by Avery*Sunshine and Dana "BigDane" Johnson with the exception
for the gospel track "Safe In His Arms." The musical roots of
Avery*Sunshine run deep as collectively their creative core has been
inspired by such diverse iconic figures as Nina Simone, Gladys Knight, The
Doobie Brothers, Curtis Blow, B.B. King and John Coltrane to Parliament;
Funkadelic, The Clark Sisters, Madonna, Miles Davis, Earth, Wind

Les Claypool's Duo De Twang

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

How “deconstructed” can a group get? How about just one vocal, one bass, one guitar, and a basic beat supplied by stomping on a mini-tambourine-doohickey? That’s exactly what everyone’s favorite storyteller/narrator, Les Claypool, is incorporating in his new band, Duo de Twang. While Les is still pulling double duty with the Primus lads, he has also found the time to unite with his old buddy, Bryan Kehoe, who fans will recognize from several past Claypool projects, and also as one of the main actors from Les’ hilarious jam band mockumentary, ‘Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo.’ But unlike Primus, DDT focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things – as heard throughout the band’s debut recording, ‘Four Foot Shack.’

 

“I was asked a year before last to put together a project for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco,” recalls Les about DDT’s formation. “So I thought, ‘I’ll do a little duo thing,’ and I originally thought, ‘Well, Mike Dillon, he can bang on some stuff, and I can twang away on my dobro bass.’ Then I got to talking to Mirv, and he ended up doing it. But then he couldn’t continue on, and I still really enjoyed it – it was a great thing. We did a couple of shows, so I got a hold of my old buddy, Kehoe, who I’ve known since high school, and it kind of just turned into he and I sitting there in front of the campfire, playing hillbilly versions of my songs and some other people’s songs. And drinking. It’s an intimate thing – you sit there and hobnob with the crowd, and play a couple of tunes…and do some more hobnobbing.”

 

As a result, a DDT performance is bound to be one the most laid back, charming, and fun performances you’ll witness. “My son and I went on a camping trip up to Kernville this last year and we brought my twang bass and his banjo and at night we’d sit around the campfire with the dog and twang away. It was one of the greatest times of my life and I thought, hell, I need to do this on stage. So, with a little Hollywood magic and some backwoods ingenuity, we now have two guys sitting around the campfire, having a couple of beers, playing tunes. We are literally sitting around the campfire – it’s more of a hang than a show. So, bring your s’mores and wieners.” And as evidenced by DDT’s live shows and debut, Les and Bryan mostly mix traditional tunes, popular covers, and readings of Primus classics (all of which are usually barely recognizable when compared to the original versions). Case in point, the inclusion of “Battle of New Orleans,” “Stayin’ Alive,” “Man in the Box,” “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver,” and “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver” on DDT’s debut disc. “A lot of it is just stumbling across it,” explains Les about how a tune is selected to be twang-ified. “You’re twanging away, and then all of a sudden, something just comes out. And then you laugh about it…or you don’t. And then you move on. There are tons of songs that we’ve stumbled across, and these ones just happened to be the ones that stuck.”

The Art of Beer

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

The medium of animation allows filmmakers to put their characters in a limitless range of scenarios. Scenes of immoderate consumption of everything from alcohol to laughing gas to honey may trigger a character’s hallucinatory sequence or their outrageous antics. Whether they are intended to teach a lesson or are simply an excuse for dazzling visual effects, inebriated cartoons appear throughout the history of animation.

Come learn more about classic cartoons and altered states, then listen to representatives from three local breweries—Turtle Anarchy, Jackalope and Yazoo—talk about their own artistic process in the creation of their beers. Participants must be at least 21 years old with a valid ID to attend.

Vertical Horizon & Tonic

Presented by Wildhorse Saloon at Wildhorse Saloon

Join us for a rockin' good time with Vertical Horizon & Tonic!

Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grass roots band to national attention. Vertical Horizon released three albums independently (There and Back Again, Running on Ice, and Live Stages) and toured extensively before signing with RCA Records in 1998. In 1999, they released their breakout album, Everything You Want, which went on to sell more than two million copies. The second single off the CD, the title track “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts, and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. Having carved out a page in the annals of music history the band garnered further radio attention with “You’re a God” (#4 on Billboard’s Adult Chart) and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning).” In 2005, “Best I Ever Had” became a top 20 country hit for country star Gary Allan.

Tonic: six Top 10 singles. Over 4 million records sold. Grammy nominations, platinum albums, numerous awards and hit songs around the world, plus the #1 most-played rock song of 1998. Tonic was a musical powerhouse, merging the raw honesty of rock to unabashed melody…and ushering rock n roll into a new millennium.

Sundy Best w/ Aubrie Sellers

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Hail to Eastern Kentucky. This is truly the cornerstone of Sundy Best. The duo’s blend is their own mix: from country, bluegrass, rock, soul, and rhythm and blues, the duo produces music that, at times, is hard to classify. That’s just fine by Kris Bentley and Nick Jamerson. All they need is the strum of guitar strings and Kris’s cajon driving the beat. Their lyrics describe the lives of their families, friends, and fans, as well as themselves. Every song is a reminder that they have not forgotten where they came from, but also where they are heading.

Front porch melodies and lyrics grown out of the rocky topsoil of Eastern Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountains intertwine Sundy Best’s roots into the songs they sing. They are storytellers, musicians, friends, and the impetus of the ‘kin folk movement’ that is organically connecting a strong music-loving family that believes in solid, real and relatable songs.

An Evening with Webb Wilder

Presented by The Basement at The Basement

There are Roots-Rockers, and then there's Webb Wilder.

Hardly a purist, he has described the music he and his band, The Beatnecks, make as, "Rock for Roots fans and Roots for Rock fans." In essence: Rock and Roll. There’s nothing new about combining R & B, Rock and Roll, Country, Blues, Pop and Rock. The Rolling Stones and the Beatles proved that it can yield marvelous and diverse results. I said he wasn’t a PURIST. I didn’t say he wasn’t very PICKY about the quality of the music. That includes everything from the sonics of the recordings, the choice of players, the influences he draws on, the songs he chooses to cover, or how attentive he is to the craftsmanship of his own songs.

The self-proclaimed "Last Of The Full Grown Men" hasn’t limited his creativity to the music business. There’s the picture business. His critically acclaimed indie films made him a cult hero and led to a major motion picture (Peter Bogdonavich’s "The Thing Called Love," Paramount). He’s done guest appearances on others' albums (Ben Folds, Jason Ringenberg, Farmer Jason, William Shatner, Maura O’Connell), and a Disney produced duo of companion CDs for the animated movie "Cars." His smooth baritone has been used for voice-overs on countless radio commercials; he even did a stint as one of America’s FIRST Satellite DJs on XM Radio for four and a half years. Using all manner of media, Webb Wilder has been impacting Popular culture (and it him) for way over 20 years, all the while maintaining a devoted worldwide fan base through a relentless, never ending tour schedule.

Snap on 2&4 w/ Joe Davidian Trio

Presented by Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop

The Snap on 2 & 4 performance for Friday, August 22 features a return to the Jazz Cave of the Joe Davidian Trio.

A standout talent on the piano, Joe studied with jazz greats Kenny Werner and Jim McNeely throughout his high school years, earned both a Bachelor and Master's of Music degrees from the prestigious University of Miami School of Music, and has performed with jazz greats Joe Lovano, Kevin Mahogany, and Tito Puente, to name a few. His sense of swing, rhythmic interest and melodic interpretation rank him among the greatest of jazz pianists of the day.

It was while at the University of Miami that Joe met bassist Jamie Ousley and drummer Austin McMahon, where they comprised the rhythm section of the university's top big band. They formed an instant musical connection that they have developed and nourished since as the Joe Davidian Trio, or JD3. The trio has performed at numerous festivals, and has opened for Jane Monheit, Dianne Reeves, and Danilo Pérez. They have backed a "who's who" of jazz artists, including Manuel Valera Sr., Dave Liebman, Carmen Lundy, Bob Mintzer, and Ira Sullivan. The trio performs jazz standards as well as originals composed by all band members, shadowing the trio models of pianists Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, and Oscar Peterson. The Nashville appearances of the JD3 are eagerly-awaited and always memorable. Last year the trio released a CD, "Live At The Jazz Cave," that was recorded right here. This time around their focus will be mostly on original material, and they intend to record this performance for release as a new CD Don't miss it!!

Government Cheese

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

GOVERNMENT CHEESE brought punk rock to a small sleepy southern Kentucky town of Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1985. For 7 years they traveled in vans as they played all over the American south and worked their way as far north as NYC and as far south as Texas. After making it briefly onto MTV. Several of their songs – “Camping on Acid,” “Mammaw Drives the Bus,” “Fish Stick Day” – made it onto the national college charts.


20 years later, college and high school students treasure their memories of growing up dancing to Government Cheese. The band broke up in 1992, but many reunion gigs have happened since then. Their story has been immortalized in the cult classic book “Cheese Chronicles: The True Story of a Rock and Roll Band You’ve Never Heard Of” written by Cheese co-founder Tommy Womack.

Saturday June 14
Shooting Women
Alexis Krasilovsky
5:00pm

Featuring more than 50 camerawomen from around the world, and shot over a period of six years, Shooting Women, by pioneering filmmaker and cinema studies professor Alexis Krasilovsky, celebrates the amazing talent and unflinching spirit of image-making women from the sets of Hollywood and Bollywood to the war zones of Afghanistan. This internationally-acclaimed DOC, based on Krasilovsky’s book “Women Behind the Camera,” broaches the persistent issues of the glass ceiling, sexual harassment, and childcare for professional camerawomen around the globe—working from environments where raising such issues is seen as “unprofessional.”


Saturday June 14th
Despite the Gods
Penny Vozniak
7:00pm

Welcome to India! Home of the world’s largest movie industry, where mere mortal film stars are worshiped with the same fervor as timeless Indian Gods; and the new buzzword ‘co-production’ looms on the lips of Indian financiers keen to form a Bollywood-Hollywood alliance. In 2008, Hollywood’s prodigal daughter, Jennifer Lynch, daughter of film director David Lynch, travels to India to direct Hisss: a creature-FEA film about the vengeful snake Goddess Nagin. But things go wrong very quickly. Perhaps there is a good reason why Hollywood and Bollywood have never blended like this before…With uncensored candour, Lynch can only cheerlead and watch with part hope, part despair as her beloved Hisss strays further and further away from her original vision. Surrounded by a team of truly wonderful Indian crew, her twelve-year-old daughter, and a cast of Bollywood stars, she does her best to stay sane and guide the production through a minefield of disasters.

Lissie

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

Lissie Maurus was raised in the riverside town of Rock Island, Illinois, and she drew upon those blue-collar Midwestern origins to create her own form of indie folk music. The granddaughter of an international barbershop quartet champion, she grew up singing in theater productions, eventually picking up the guitar and playing her own songs at local coffee shops as a teenager. Lissie was also something of a rebel; she got thrown out of high school during her senior year, spent a brief period at Colorado State University, relocated to Paris for a semester, and eventually ditched college altogether to pursue her music career. Returning to the U.S., Lissie headed west and settled in Los Angeles, where she became a fixture on the local venue circuit and landed a national tour opening for Lenny Kravitz.

Lissie's music had already appeared on shows like The O.C., Veronica Mars, and House by the time she moved to California, and she widened her fan base by launching a weekly songwriter's circle at her local bar, Crane's Hollywood Tavern, and releasing a self-titled EP. Things truly began picking up speed in 2009, though, when Lissie released the dusky Why You Runnin' and toured the country alongside Ray LaMontagne. Part of the Why You Runnin' EP had been recorded in the U.K., and she returned there in early 2010 to promote the release of her first full-length album, Catching a Tiger. Although she also made several appearances in America -- including a standout performance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival and a single date with the rebooted Lilith Fair -- Lissie spent most of her time touring Europe, where her debut record was released in June. An American release followed in August, courtesy of Fat Possum Records. Continuing to tour heavily and build her fan base, particularly in the U.K., Lissie continued to work with numerous groups and artists, including Snow Patrol and Robbie Williams. She returned to the studio in 2012 with producer Garrett "Jacknife" Lee -- who had also produced albums for Snow Patrol and Williams -- to record the follow-up to her acclaimed debut. In October 2013, Lissie released her second full-length album, Back to Forever. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

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.

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 Handsome Family with Richard Buckner

Presented by The Basement at The Basement


Enter the dark forest of The Handsome Family. This is haunting and beautiful music— brilliant, emotionally-charged and totally unique. May, 2013 brought the release of The Handsome Family’s Wilderness, a record about animals (frogs, flies, wildebeest, octopuses, lizards...), but in lyricist Rennie Sparks’ hands the wonders of nature are intertwined with true stories of Stephen Foster’s death in a Bowery flophouse, General Custer’s shiny boots as he lay dead on a Montana prairie and the capture of Mary Sweeney, the Wisconsin Window Smasher of 1896. There are also tall tales of the octopus’s hypnotic sea-dance, the frenzied mayhem of a town afflicted by a golden lizard’s bite and an enormous mansion full of screeching owls. Musically you’ll hear everything from parlor ballads to overdriven guitars, trilling mandolin and clawhammer banjo, but also beautiful bells, intricate seven-part harmonies, pedal steel and elemental rock ’n roll.

The Handsome Family is a 20-year songwriting collaboration between husband and wife, Brett (music) and Rennie Sparks (words). Their lyrics and music are very intense, highly descriptive and full of meticulously-researched narrative and exhilerating musical re-imaginings of everything from Appalacian holler, psychedelic rock, Tin Pan Alley and medieval ballad. Of course you don’t have to be a music historian to love these songs. They are full of romantic longing for nature’s mysterious beauty and the tiny wonders of everyday life. They pair sweet melody with sad harmony, love poetry with dark beats. This is music that makes you shiver and cry, but also makes you happy to be alive.

Native & Local Honey present SCHOOL DAZE feat. Meth Dad, Dogtooth & Churchyard

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Few bands can boast a back story as impressively bonkers as the world famous METH DAD.

After being canned from the American shot-put team at the 2008 Olympics in Bejing for his "party boy" attitude, Tyler Walker, AKA METH DAD vowed to give up his life of ball throwing and embrace one of, well… ball throwing. In the next 3 years he built a name for himself as the biggest and best one man party show in the galaxy.

But life on the FBIs most wanted list took it's toll. In December of 2011 he returned to America for the first time in 18 months, explaining that he had to come back because "You can't get any decent cheese in Djibouti." Things looked bleak for our hero; in January of 2012 he was found guilty on multiple accounts of bamboozlement, party-rocking and sorcery, and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. METH DAD quietly accepted his sentence, saying he planned on devoting his many years of solitude to "booty bass and gaining immortality."

But fans were less patient. In the following year the MDLA (METH DAD Liberation Army) launched a massive grassroots campaign of guerrilla concerts, blue angel fly overs, senate walk outs and submarine sinkings. Threatened by a government in shambles, In the fall of 2012 President Obama offered to pardon METH DAD in return for his penning of a new national anthem.

But national wasn't the word for it at all. Global, universal or down right satisfying would be more fitting terms for METH DAD's opus "No Parents" which was released on New Year's Day 2013 and is still ranking number 1 on over 137 different music charts worldwide. In what has been described by Newsweek as "the only true phenomena" a massive, world wide simultaneous broadcast of the single on Martin Luther King day 2013 has ushered in a new era of peace, which some historians are calling a 2nd pax romana, that has to date doubled the total number of days in recorded history without war.

Not content to just merely write the best song ever, METH DAD spent much of this past spring working on his debut full length "POSI VIBES" and assembling the first ever METH DAD MEGA BAND. So what does METH DAD have planned for the rest of 2013, no one knows for sure, but to quote Jay-Z "A future filled with METH DAD is terrifying; a future without him is certain death."

World Premiere of SCARECROWS WILL NEVER SEE THE SUNSET by Darren Michael

Presented by Playhouse Nashville at Street Theatre

Playhouse Nashville's 2014 season of New Plays for New Audiences continues with the World Premiere of SCARECROWS WILL NEVER SEE THE SUNSET: THE LEGENDS OF SMACKOVER. Written by Darren Michael, professor of theatre at Austin Peay State University, SCARECROWS is inspired by actual events and features Nashville actors Michael Adcock (OTHER DESERT CITIES at Music City Theatre Co.), Jack Chambers (Playhouse Nashville's SEXTAPE & OTHER STORIES), John Mauldin (ROGER'S VERSION at Blackbird Theatre), five-time Grammy nominee and Dove Award winner Bonnie Keen (Studio Tenn company member & Nashville Shakespeare Festival's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM), Tenny Award winning stage & film veteran & Tennessee Crossroads personality Rob Wilds (Tennessee Rep's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE), and stage, film, & TV actor Becky Wahlstrom (Mad Men, 24, Joan of Arcadia, Tennessee Women's Theatre Project, & DEVIL SEDAN at Playhouse Nashville).

Oil. Blood. Madness. Love. Bo Legend (Adcock) carries the painful effects of his choices and the events that shaped his life into a final confrontation with his larger-than-life father John (Wilds), older brother Bear (Chambers), and Mama (Keen) in a desperate effort to assure his legacy.  Set in the 1920s and 1930s rural south, SCARECROWS is a non-linear tale of the farming Legend family and the explosive changes brought about by the sudden discovery of oil on land they once owned but sold in the aftermath of a family tragedy.

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

Charm City Angels

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

From the working class streets of Baltimore, CHARM CITY DEVILS return with their newest album, SINS.  The band’s second full length effort finds them adding harder, edgier tones to their blues-based roots.  The result of the band's life experiences over the past few years, SINS features an aggression and energy that hits you right between the eyes.  From the first note of "Spite" to the last cymbal crash of “Unstoppable,” SINS showcases the bands power, directness and new found energy and intensity. 

Frontman John Allen explains, “When we came off of the road at the end of Cruefest 2, we all felt so pumped and excited to keep moving and growing.  We were so blown away at the reaction that we didn’t want to lose that creative energy. We started laying down tracks and ideas for this record almost immediately.”  And in August 2011, CHARM CITY DEVILS entered Sound Kitchen studios with Grammy®-winning producer Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, Egypt Central) to record SINS.

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.

KEVIN GATES + Special Guest: Chevy Woods - "By Any Means" Tour

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

The school of hard knocks has been breeding grounds for many of the most talented musicians in history. With the rough and tumble street life playing catalyst for some of the grittiest modern-day blues, much-celebrated artists from B.B. King to the Ohio Players to Lil Boosie have poured their pains, frustrations, accomplishments and celebrations into a universal language.

Reformed Baton Rouge hard head Kevin Gates is one of these extraordinary entertainers.
The product of a city commonly known as the “Bloody Sticks,” neither a barrage of would-be
assassins’ bullets, the perils of poverty nor even the threat of 30 years behind bars could prevent what was meant to be.

Kevin has come out swinging with five mixtapes, more than a million YouTube.com views for videos “Love You” and “Satellites” and a strong regional following. He has also been courted by several major record labels.

And with the release of his forthcoming mixtape Here You Go Vol. 1, he is well on his way to taking the world by storm.

Merle Haggard

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

At the age of 77 the veteran singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer and bandleader is still making some of the most compelling music of his long and storied career. It almost goes without saying that Merle Haggard is widely regarded as country music's greatest living recording artist. A rugged individualist who simultaneously embodies and transcends the genre, Haggard is both a seminal superstar and an unrepentant outsider. Over the course of a remarkably prolific five-decade career, he's consistently shown himself to be an uncompromising creative force, far more concerned with pursuing his iconoclastic vision than with meeting the expectations of the music-industry establishment.

Jeff Bridges & The Abiders are hitting the road this summer and have announced a dozen new concert dates including the band’s very first east coast outing! Since the release of Bridges’ acclaimed self-titled album on Blue Note Records, the band has been performing live across the U.S. from clubs to theatres to the famed Stagecoach country music festival.

An Oscar-winner for his portrayal of a grizzled former country music legend in the 2009 film Crazy Heart, actor, songwriter, and musician Jeff Bridges released his debut album Be Here Soon in 2000 and his self-titled major-label follow up on Blue Note Records in 2011. Produced by Bridges’ Crazy Heart collaborator, the Academy Award-winning, multiple-Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer T Bone Burnett, the album was a culmination of their more than three decade personal, professional, and musical friendship (the two met in 1980 on the set of Heaven’s Gate).

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

Curiouser And Curiouser—Avant-Garde Polish Theatre Posters from the 1970s

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

Presented in honor of the late Don Evans, who for much of his professional career taught art at Vanderbilt University, Curiouser and Curiouser—Avant-Garde Polish Theatre Posters from the 1970s features a selection of posters given by Evans from a particularly rich period of Eastern European graphic art design. Some artists went on to receive significant notoriety for their work; Jan Sawka’s theatrical posters provoked the Polish government to expel him in 1979. Many of the posters reflect an aesthetic begun in the 1960s under the influence of Pop art and experimental theatre of the period. These posters, as well as those from the 1960s, influenced a wide range of creative figures, including the Quay Brothers whose films were recently featured in a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in which several similar posters from the period served as a context for their innovative work.

As a part of the exhibition, the Fine Arts Gallery will screen within the Gallery Freedom on the Fence, a 2009 documentary about the history of Polish posters, from WWII through the fall of Communism. The film details the evolution of this art form by revealing the revolutionary role posters played in the social, political, and cultural life of Poland. Freedom on the Fence spotlights several Polish poster artists, including Roman Cie?lewicz and Franciszek Starowieyski, both of whom are featured in Curiouser and Curiouser. The film fuses contemporary footage of Warsaw and Krakow with remarkable archival footage (from the Polish National Film Archive) of posters on the streets and artists at work, to provide context and demonstrate the contribution the art form made to the culture. Freedom on the Fence has been screened at many film festivals including the San Diego Jewish Film Festival, the Napa Film Festival and the Santa Fe Film Festival. In 2009, The Museum of Modern Art showed the film as part of a 6-month show on Polish Posters. It is now in the permanent collection of MoMA.

Curiouser and Curiouser—Avant-Garde Polish Theatre Posters from the 1970s is organized by the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery and curated by Joseph S. Mella, director.

Koa

Blending the nearly perfect, vividly melodic and breathtakingly diverse potential of electro and dubstep, Clark Kent, 20 year old native of California, has definitely set to make his mark on the electronic music scene. Citing Bassnectar as an early influence in his taste and production, he’s put his musical background in guitar and piano towards creating incredible remixes as well as original productions that are sure to propel him to the forefront of his precocious class of the up and coming peer group of producers he finds himself in. As he makes strides both in musicianship and exposure, the future is definitely looking bright for Clark Kent.

Mocha

Mocha is a Neo-Soul, Pop/Funk band based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Pressure Kids

Pressure Kids are five twenty-somethings hailing from the outskirts of Birmingham.
Their songwriting and musical mission statement is to get the audience dancing and raise smiles on people's faces.

Solidifying their line-up in 2011 with talented, experienced musicians and a charismatic female lead singer, Pressure Kids have embarked on a gig-offensive, playing host to responsive and complimentary audiences throughout the UK.

The band self-released their debut 4-track EP in November 2011, showcasing their penchant for catchy melodies, tight musicianship, and massive pop hooks.

Dancing to the beat of their own drum, Pressure Kids are independent, exciting and definitely worth a listen.

Art Exhibit: Grace Walker Goad - Two Decades in Color

Presented by Vanderbilt Kennedy Center at Vanderbilt Kennedy Center

Grace Walker Goad was diagnosed with moderately severe autism with intellectual disabilities and severe speech/language disorder at just under age three, in 1997, and has been painting since she was four. Because autism subtly affects the muscle tone of portions of her grasp, her work is largely abstract. Yet, her advanced use of color and composition has been lauded in exhibits in Tennessee and other states. See also www.GraceGoard.com and on Facebook Grace Goad | Autism Art.

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

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
"The only thing you don't regret in the morning" - Chicago Sun Times
"An hour of non-stop laughs" - Up Chicago
"Somewhere Jim Beam and Jack Daniels are nodding with approval" - City Pages
"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

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.

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.
