* You know Heartbeater? They're that heavy, grunge-fueled indie-rock band that's been making heavy, grunge-fueled indie rock here in Middle Tennessee for a few years now. They made an EP (which I liked), and then they made an LP (which I liked). Well, Bummerino Metropolis Alert: Frontman Greg Mabry is peacing the fuck out of Tennessee, and Heartbeater only has one show left. It's going down Friday, Aug. 19, at The 5 Spot, and Bows and Arrows and Action! will appear in support. There's a Facebook event page. Of course, that's the night of Katy Perry's show at Bridgestone, and I'm sure there will be a little bit of fan overlap.
* At the time of his death in 1953, Hank Williams left behind some notebooks featuring a slew of uncompleted tunes. Well, Bob Dylan's Egyptian Records imprint — in partnership with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's CMF Records and Columbia Records — will be putting out a collection called The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams on Oct. 4, and it will feature completed versions of the lost songs as co-written and performed by several contemporary artists. Unsurprisingly, a whole grip of those artists are either Nashvillian or frequent Music City visitors, among them Jack White, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, Levon Helm, Holly Williams and Sheryl Crow.
