And since we're on the topic, Quiet Entertainer is celebrating his birthday this weekend with shows in Clarksville, Nashville and Murfreesboro. Here's what the dead-tree edition of the Scene has to say about his Cafe Coco appearance on Friday:
It’s no secret we’re fans of Quiet Entertainer’s music — our shared love of Tangerine Dream means we’ll be fans for life — but this pick is about something else: QE’s flair for synergy. Not only is tonight’s show a release party for his new album Intelligent Design, it’s the first night of a new monthly residence in the back bar at Cafe Coco, as well as the fifth anniversary of The Holla — the late, beloved hip-hop party that was a galvanizing force in the local rap community and a kick-start to the healthy, vibrant scene we have today. Plus it’s QE’s birthday party. Like we said, the man has a flair for synergy. Helping QE celebrate the long list of things that need celebratin’ are longtime partner in crime Spoken Nerd, mischievous posse Last of the Horsemen, and new jack Rally + Don Cruso.
