Our night will be spent at The Basement for Andrew Combs, the Electric Hearts and Houndmouth. We’ve sung the praises of Combs quite a bit, even in the Nashville Scene, (which, I think being a music blog that tries to talk about music we like rather than destroying music we don’t, is a-OK), so today listen to the bluesy sounds of locals Electric Hearts:.
Also smart choices (and all Nashville acts): the Honey Locust EP release show at the High Watt (which I also picked in the Scene) and the Heavy Cream album release and crawfish boil at Zombie Shop. Ambitious two-fers can begin the night at Zombie for crawfish and tunes around 8, heading to the Basement after. There’s also John Henry & the Engine, opening for Lucero, at Cannery, who gave his Nashville Five yesterday.
Tomorrow? It’s either Lee Bains and the Glory Fires w/ Cassino at the Basement or Lampchop. Bonnie Raitt‘s at the Ryman, but that’s sold out (approach ticket vendors cautiously).
