Sleater-Kinney made their first Nashville appearance in almost a decade last night at Marathon Music Works. We sent our Happenings Editor, Kevin Brown, (along with photographer Jake Giles-Netter), to capture the evening’s proceedings and analyze the band’s status as one of the essential rock groups of their generation.
Find out what makes up the vintage sound – and vintage look – of the Blackfoot gypsies, a band you’ll both hear and see coming.
With the coy vocals providing a platform for confidence, “The Best” gets its vibe from a borderline country agenda but its movement from soul, giving you a quick two and a half minutes of feel-good and forget-me-not attitude.
The most wonderful time of year is around the corner: Record Store Day! Here’s what to buy, where to go, where to find a petting zoo of various fluffy animals and where to run into us listening to our favorite local bands. If you see us, say hello (we’ll be here, not in Tangiers).
We venture into “Raised on the Plains” and down Gallatin road with the East Nashville-based singer songwriter. Just remember to buckle up, and enjoy the journey.
Get to know this “Gamblin'” Nashville legend, who you can catch every Wednesday in April at the 5 Spot.
This past Saturday, Maine-based folk singer/songwriter Lady Lamb and her band made a stop at The High Watt in support of her recently released sophomore record, After – and we were there to capture the action.
Jessie has not only found her voice, in every sense of the phrase, but she has also shared it through a musical catharsis of a concept album, Dark Place, that is lovely, hauntingly and wholly her.
See why Kevin can’t wait to catch Lady Lamb tomorrow – and while he’ll always associate her music with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
Shane recounts his favorite places to catch free music in town – just remember, please, to tip the musicians.
