Aloha! Hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start. Here's everything that's on my radar:
Lone Official w/Paul Booker, Bad Friend, Lady Land in Flames & Taiwan Deth at Springwater. This marks the debut of local psych supergroup Lady Land in Flames and an excuse for me to talk about how awesome Lone Official is.
Ricky Young & Red White Blue at The 5 Spot.
Jim Lauderdale at Station Inn. As Chris Parker puts it, Lauderdale is a "songwriter's songwriter." That is completely meta, and thusly I am inclined to approve.
Eric Wilson and the Empty Hearts w/Cameron McGill & Rosewood Thieves at The Basement. I once caught Rosewood Thieves with HIBtB, and as I recall they're pretty psychedelic and organ-y. So that's pretty alright.
Folk The World 5 feat. Happy Box, Looks Like a Snake, Lizzie's Corner, Dewey Decibel, Blue Cadet-3 & Pineapple Explode at Rcktwn.
JEFF's also playing an early show at The Vine in Murfreesboro, but it's entirely possible that I've left something essential off my list. Please, weekenders, let us know of any other hot jams being perpetrated in the vicinity. Have fun.
