OK, so maybe there is
a reason to go to 12th & Porter again, now that 808 Entertainment
is on the scene. (And Left Can Dance's competition may have just gotten a little stiffer.)
It looks like 808 began last November as a one-time thing for a benefit, only to find the gig too good to give up. I've yet to attend any of their events, but their party pics
are fairly intriguing. Hey, I'm a sucker for a theme party, and this next one's all gold. Speaking of Buddytown, from the pics, the crowd seems to have some crossover action with the Buddytown and Left Can Dance peeps--I guess the same 50 people in Nashville will dance anywhere. And if anyone has been, let me know what the tunes are like.
If you want to scope it out, their next show is Friday, Feb. 16th ($5 if you're 21; $8 if you're 18-20). It features DJs Kevin Perryman and Travitron inbetween sets from Nite Nite, HiPhi, The Mean Tambourines and headliners The Comfies.
Note, this is the final Nashville Comfies show with Sam Smith on drums--he's got a gig going drumming with Ben Folds indefinitely. No word yet on Smith's replacement.
