Quiet? Entertaining? Blogworthy?
How's your weekend looking, Nashville? Plenty going on, if the ice or the cops don't get ya.
Arty indie rockers Ra Ra Riot play Exit/In tonight. Check out our feature on them here.
Also: three kinds of ramshackle to pick from on this evening.
Those Darlins, Deertick and MEEMAW hold it down at The 5 Spot, over East Nashville way.
If that's a bit too youthful-enthusiasm-ramshackle for your tastes Douglas Corner has Malcolm Holcombe for you--more of a grizzled-and-wise-to-the-world ramshackle. (9 p.m.)
Last but not least ramshackle, Totally Snake and The Alcohol Stuntband throw down at The Basement, which will be a cellar full of noise and yelling and possibly cans of PBR lodged in awkward places.
Halcyon Bike Shop opens officially, though it's been open for a minute now. The Mattoid, Diarama and Weiners play the party. Capris are great for biking! The shop and the party are at 1118 Halcyon Ave.
If you want less "uh, yeah" and more "aw yeah" in your evening, then get thee to the Wildhorse, where Young Jeezy will rap about "The Recession."
If you're tired of hearing about the recession, don't turn on the TV, or listen to the radio, or read a newspaper. What you could do is check out Quiet Entertainer at The 5 Spot. Is his shit blogworthy? (See above.) You be the judge.
Finally: R.I.P. Bettie Page.
