Give the sparklin' new Rutledge a try tonight with De Novo Dahl opening for the solo stylings of label-mate Amanda Palmer of gothy cabaret kids the Dresden Dolls. According to Palmer's MySpace page, this show was booked last minute to celebrate the end of Palmer's recent recordings in Nashville—otherwise the Scene would have covered this wonderland of coordinated outfits and drawn-on eyebrows earlier. Tickets are only being sold at the door, so lace up that corset, put on your dancing shoes and get there early.

P.S. It's Palmer's Birthday! Looking for brownie points? She requests "lots of balloons and dinosaurs and pretty hats."

Wanna Play Exit/In?

From Jason:
Hey this is Jason here at the Exit/In - We are looking for local bands to play our "Rock the Block" series. If you are a local band interested in playing a show that has a low cover (i.e. $3) with a good drink special on Miller's ($2-$3) you most likely won't get much money from the gig but it will get you a show at the Exit/In. If you are interested please contact Jason by email at jexitin at We're looking for bands that can bring an audience of 18+ but mostly ones that are old enough to drink to take advantage of the great drink specials we'll be offering. Please do NOT contact us via Myspace, as you will just be directed to the above email address.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!

We all know how much Gillian Welch and David Rawlings love to show up at other people's shows. Well, last Wednesday, during a midnight set from the David Rawlings Machine, the favor was repaid by the lovely Norah Jones, in town to play the Ryman the following night.

B-Sides: Inside This Week's Music Section

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2007 at 11:36 AM

Jason Moon Wilkins reviews The Clutters and Last Train Home. (The Clutters play Friday, 27th at The Basement; Last Train Home on Thursday, 3rd at 3rd & Lindsley.)

Good Country People: John Prine and Mac Wiseman rock the duet.

Nashville loses songwriter and much-loved prankster, Glenn Sutton.

Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman—just ask Elizabeth Cook and Pam Tillis. (Cook plays Tuesday, 1st at Station Inn.)

John Pitcher takes you on a journey to a musical train wreck at the Symphony Center. ("You spend your whole life learning your craft," says one NSO musician, who spoke after the concert. "But no one teaches you what to do when your performance hits a brick wall.")

The Spin takes you on a journey to the land of pastel and pearls: flip-flop-a-gedden!

Our pick of the week: To Live and Shave in L.A., who play tonight, Friday, 27th at the Springwater.
