It's Tuesday night, Nashville.
Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power
join forces tonight at Exit/In. Yes, Chesnutt is the guy who plays Terence in Sling Blade
, and, yes, Elf Power is the Athens Elephant 6 power-pop band that flies under the name The Amorphous Strums when they're backing up Chesnutt, as they do on his latest album, the excellent Dark Developments
. It's the old backing band as opening band trick and should be a good time. Elf Power will forever be The Band That Opened for Neutral Milk Hotel That One Time I Actually Got to See Them and It Was Totally Awesome.* Therefore, they can do no wrong in my book.
Meanwhile, Ghostfinger play across the street at The End, and Destroy x 3 play the Muse.
