Re: “Foo Fighters to Play Bridgestone Arena Oct. 5

That's cool, maybe Dave will let everybody in for $5 since he doesn't "fucking care" what people pay for stuff. Cause, you know, dudes that have been megamillionaires for 20+ years are usually pretty in-touch with what reality is like for the other 99%.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

I have some fond (albeit largely drug addled) memories of that place when it was the head shop/dance club.

Zushimaki is the restaurant that he mentioned.

Great interview, thanks for posting. I was fortunate to see Dez with Prince on the 1999 tour back in 1983. I was only 12 and it was one of the first concerts I ever attended, and certainly one of the most memorable.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

It's one of the few places small local & national acts could play original music to an appreciative audience with a great sound system and sound guys who knew what they were doing. Nashville has plenty of places for songwriters sitting on stools, but fewer places for bands to play full-on electric gigs in a welcoming venue. Not to mention

It was an awkward location perhaps, too close to downtown for locals to easily get there, and too far from Broadway for tourists to find it, but it served a very specific purpose very well, and it will be missed.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

You gotta remember there is an owner in this situation and he's not a big corporation nor is the building of historical value (just sentimental!) Yes, it was an awesome music venue, but it was privately owned, and he invests in real estate in order to eventually turn a profit on it. As much as I love the Rutledge and I'm sooo sad to know it will probably be turned into another freakin' restaurant that we don't need, I understand from the owner's perspective that at some point you move on, especially if you get a very lucrative offer from another party.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

It's not a lame club. Andy has supported so many up & coming musicians, and Frank is the best sound guy in town, for my money. Hate to see it go. Hope they're able to relocate.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

I liked The Rutledge. It didn't book many bands I liked, but when it did, it was always good sound and lighting.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

It was around under different names way earlier than that. Blue Sky Court from '99 to 2003, and primarily a metal club before that.

Re: “The Rutledge Sold, Closing This Month?

Destroyed by developers? The Rutledge has been around what, a decade? If even that. The earliest I remember going to a show there was maybe 2009 or 2008. That's like lamenting if they tore down the Hampton Inn & Suites across the street to build a bigger hotel. It's not Exit/In or the Station Inn. It sucks to see it go but really, what does one expect with the development of SoBro?

I think he's talking about Zushimaki, not Jasmine.

Phenomenal, excellent response! And it's good when someone speaks the truth, instead of what everyone wants to believe and hear of the truth! Kudos to you Chris!!
