Weekend Round-Up: Minnie Pearl Style

Posted By on Fri, Oct 25, 2013 at 7:30 AM

Well howdy! Today marks the 101st birthday of dearly departed comedienne and Grand Ole Opry member Minnie Pearl. If you don't know about the legendary funnywoman, who happens to be a Belmont graduate and my second-favorite person from Hickman County (my personal No. 1 being my dad), you should probably get wise. Seriously, that mugging anecdote makes me LOL every time. Rest in peace, Minnie.

Anyhow, loads of good action this weekend. Tonight you're looking at: John Prine and Leon Redbone's sold-out show at the Ryman; Ruby Amanfu with Matt Mahaffey at 12th & Porter; Langhorne Slim and Jonny Fritz at Mercy Lounge; Shy Guy at Boheme Collectif; Steelism and Andrew Combs releasing their split at The Basement; and more. Tomorrow you've got: previously mentioned supergroup Salvador Dali Parton popping up at SIX different shows; John Prine with Steve Earle at the Ryman; the block party with Steve Aoki and Waka Flocka Flame at 12th & P; J. Roddy Walston and the Business early at Grimey's and late at Exit/In; My So-Called Band at The High Watt with Guilty Pleasures over at Mercy Lounge; Grooms and Jasmin Kaset at The Stone Fox; the Zombie Prom at Springwater; The GoldRoom at FooBar; and loads more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by intern Cory "Silly Hat" Woodroof and music listings editor Adam "I'm Just So Proud to Be Here" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves an agreeable weekend.
