The Scene will be previewing Next Big Nashville soon enough, but in the meantime Janet over at Out the Other is more than equal to the task (her rundown of Austin City Limits is a thing of interweb legend). She's posting mp3s and interviews, and getting some interesting quotes out of people, too:
"I like to dip my penis in liquid nitrogen." (Jared Micah, who calls out NBN for being "horrible" when it comes to the local experimental scene.)
"Her hair is like a campfire." (Kyle Andrews, who has big animal feet.)
We've also received some NBN updates, including a list of bands who weren't going to play but are, a list of bands that were going to play but aren't, and a list of bands that aren't playing, were never going to play, but at least thought about maybe playing, after the jump.
