* Well, I suppose I should technically say "Old Hickory's Fry Pharmacy" and not "Nashville's Fry Pharmacy." Point is, the locally based Fry Pharamacy — a pretty neat analog recording studio based out of a gorgeous old building that once functioned as (duh) a pharmacy — was recently featured in the above Target ad-type thingy. You see, Target took some photos of some models hanging out in Fry, and a couple of the shots can be seen on the inside cover of the most recent Rolling Stone (the one with Larry David on the cover). Neat studio, neat video. Good on them. Hat-tip to Tony Youngblood for letting us know about this one.
* Local venue 3rd & Lindsley recently renovated and expanded, with new sound, lights and more room for patrons. I'm having a tough time digging up any photos, but if you want to see what the new stage set-up looks like, have a look at this video of Twelve Against Nature (a Steely Dan tribute band) playing there on Saturday. There's also this one of The Saul Zonana Trio playing. Stage looks much larger, layout looks much more accommodating. We'll have to peep it in person soon.
* There's a local outfit called Golden Soldiers, and they've put together some videos. There's the psychedelic, baroque-poppy "Slow Motion" and the New-Wavy, melancholic thump of "Shadows." Definitely diggable, and hoping for more soon. Total hat-tip to WOTT on this one.
