Re: “Larry Gatlin

I love the Franklin Theater and have seen a lot of great shows there. I am also a huge fan of Larry Gatlin's music. However, this particular show seemed to be more about Larry's ego than giving the people who paid for the ticket a good musical experience. He still sings beautifully but he didn't do that much of it! There should have been a lot less talking and a lot more singing! In addition, It doesn't matter to me where you stand politically or religiously, but I don't pay for a concert to hear the entertainers views. I don't care and if I wanted to hear political commentary I would have stayed home and watched the news.

Re: “Inside Out: New Paintings by Charles Keiger

I find his work pedestrian and derivative.

Re: “Gershom Gorenberg: "The Remaking of Israel — The Need for a Second Republic"

It is important to note that the "J Street" organization has been described by the Israeli Government as an Anti Israel organization and Pro Palestinian group. And yes, these are the same Palestinians that cheered and gave out candy on the streets when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. It is a great shame that the Nashville Scene chooses to give such an organization an open stage, it is even worse that the Jewish Community Center does the same - all for money. Shame.

Re: “Big River

I'm in 4th grade my grade sow it and it was very inappropriate for my age so if you see this don't take you kids. The play was funny especially the nonsuch that was funny. My friend anders fell asleep. It was very long and boring in some parts. So I'd give it a 5 out of 10

Gee Jack,

To paraphrase Woody Allen, I've been doing all my own reading since I was forty.

Re: “Fourth of July Wine Tour and Sunset River Cruise

I've dealt with a woman named Felicia who leads some of these tours. Just so you know, wine tastings in the state of TN are free. Please consider that- and the fact that she often does not even alert the wineries involved on these "tours" (much less make arrangements for cheese, chocolates, discounts, various winery pairings & demonstrations or large groups)- BEFORE you pay $99 for this tour. Rip off!

Re: “So She Lived

Needs a rewrite to make it more cohesive--it is in workshop mode now. There are strands of thought that seem unconnected and do not progress the story. The author definitely has a message, but the play does not flow and the lead actor tended to overplay and over-emote his scenes to the point of distraction. Looking forward to the final product.

Re: “The Moody Blues

Take it easy on Ed. Ed did the best he could not knowing anything about the band and after doing about three minutes of research. Don't be so tough on the guy.

Re: “The Moody Blues

there is nothing"wistful" about the marvelous moodies. maybe the person who writes a promo should have a clue about the band. the fact that justin hayward gets mentioned last tells me all i need to know. about the author. clueless!

Re: “Daryl Hall & John Oates

Saw them at Wolf Trap in Virginia this summer, and no joke: they were saying good night within an hour of taking the stage. They came back out to do encores, but total show length was under 90 minutes. The crowd was largely incredulous.

Re: “Name the Venue Bash feat. Wanda Jackson, The Black Belles & DJ Johny Jackson

Wanda may be worth it....but if you have to wait in a single line, in the rain, for over an hour to get in the the place again like we did on Tuesday night for Warren Haynes, I'll pass. I think the owners of Marathon Music Works have some explaining to do.

Re: “Germantown Street Festival

If you're gay in Nashville, this is the place for you!! Meet fellow sausage snatchers and carpet munchers! Be HAPPY and, uh, GAY ?!

Anyway, I am not (homosexual).

Waste of time. Unless you're an interior decorator.

Re: “Nashville Scene Sounds Like Summer Concert Series feat. Real Estate & Dent May

More indie crap from your fanboy friends at the Scene; keep pushing this hipster junk on everyone - eventually, Nashville will wake up and realize that this is all 'the emperor's new music' and has been for a long time. It's basically a popularity contest liberally sprinkled with the collective hallucination that strange haircuts and tiny cigarettes can equate to actual writing talent or instrument mastery; Nashville indie music that doesn't suck basically died after bands like Government Cheese, Blind Farmers from Hell, Eleven-59, Judy Bats, and a host of others composed of hardcore locals from the 'ville and RIM grads and associated detritus got together to deliver serious grooves with serious content that you'd be humming the next day (if it was the Cheese boys, you'd be laughing along with it as well. If it was Eleven-59, it would keep you up at night hiding under your covers). Please wake up, Nashville -- the indie crap happening right now (with the absolute lone exception of the Ionians, who are actually writing music to make you think and are, therefore, doomed) is weak, tepid, carried tottering along by a collection of mutual fanboys who are too young to know any better and an unspoken agreement that 'yes, we'll play anywhere, for free'. Once upon a time it was fearless. It was rife with danger, it was new, it was dark, and it healed and brought everyone together at the same time. Stop settling, and demand some actual talent, some skill, some writing, and pony up a couple of $$ and be prepared to pay just a pittance for it; else, you're not hearing who's best - you're just hearing who's next.
