Hello everyone – I am back from New York (where Turbo Fruits and Wild Cub seemed to dominate many a conversation), trying to catch up on life, sleep and quality Nashville time. Though NYC is where I grew up, I nearly kiss the ground when I walk off that plane onto the tacky BNA carpet. After a few nights on the couch recovering (and a little Hospitality) and a beautiful wedding on a farm with music from Derek Hoke and Anderson East, I’m ready to re-emerge properly. Here’s why:
– Perhaps no where else but (East) Nashville would a band be born of British pedal steel-blood and Ohio telecaster-rips, but that’s what Steelism is – Spencer Cullum Jr. and Jeremy Fetzer, respectively. You might recognize these faces from supporting Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs, and now they’ve conceived a string-nasty, instrumental 7” single and 5-track digital EP which they will celebrate with a performance tomorrow at the Basement, along with Ms. Rose, Mr. Combs and Evan P. Donohue. Listen for yourself.
–Kim Logan, the songstress with swampy pipes, a moody twang and Amy Winehouse eyes, is hosting a listening part for her new record on Friday at Mad Donnas Loft. In keeping with the music’s Delta-spooky vibe and the impending All Hallows’ Eve, “Costumes or macabre attire” are encouraged. CD presales will be available for $5, doors at 9 pm, record spins at 10 pm, cheep whiskey pours all night. Check out Kim’s video for her single “Black Magic Boy” after the jump.
– Dent May, D. Watusi and William Tyler are all playing the The Stone Fox tonight.
– Cage The Elephant‘s Matt Schultz is playing the Basement tonight solo.
