If you like your music of a slightly more experimental bent--that is, you don't mind when a song doesn't repeat the chorus a hundred times, or if the chorus is kind of subtle, or, really, if there is no chorus. Or verses--you know, other kinds of ideas about songs that are not obvious and time-tested. If that's the kind of ship you'd like to sail in, then Open Lot should be your kind of vessel. The gallery/showspace plays host to a few bands of the mind-bendy variety tonight, including Hands Off Cuba, Forrest Bride, Square People and The Zut Alors.
Open Lot is at 1307 Jewell St., near Ellington and Douglas on the East side. Cover is $5 and the show is scheduled to begin promptly at 8 p.m. Word on the streets is that local artists and various other troublemakers will be "assisting the musicians in twisting your mind to the happy place." And isn't that where you want your mind to be? (Speaking of your mind and getting twisted to the happy place, don't forget Soundcrawl:Nashville tomorrow.)
