First, this week's issue features the results from the You Are So Nashville If... competition, so be sure to check out the many music-related entries that were chosen. (One of my faves came from Gary Wayne Davis: "You are so Nashville if you remember when you could just say something, and no one would write a song about it.")
Noble Cause: The Nobility ascend the local ranks with their latest. (Playing Tuesday, 31st at Grimey's.)
Roots of the Tomahawk: Tomahawk's third record gets tribal.
Swamp Anatomy: Tony Joe White on AC/DC, the beauty of a good drum loop and how to get a crowd dancing in two feet of water. (Playing Friday, 27th & Saturday, 28th at The Basement.)
In The Spin: Umbrella Tree & Hands Down Eugene at Family Wash; Southern Girls Rock 'n' Roll Camp.
