Best of Luck to Arts Website ArtNowNashville

Posted By on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 2:23 PM

Check out ArtNowNashville, the new online-media arm of Nashville Arts magazine, which aims to fill a service most dailies have abdicated: overnight coverage of the arts, ranging from classical, rock and jazz concerts to live theater, gallery openings and film.

Led by John Pitcher, who covers classical music for the Scene — and has handled beats ranging from classical and jazz to fine arts for the Washington Post, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Omaha World-Herald and NPR's Performance Today — the roster of contributors is studded with familiar names from The Tennessean and other local publications: Peter Cooper on roots music, Evans Donnell on theater, Adrienne Outlaw on visual arts. (We're especially happy to see Nicole Keiper, one of 1100 Broadway's biggest losses, with a prominent berth on pop.)

"The site will update 24/7 and will feature news stories, features and reviews — like a daily newspaper arts section on the web," Pitcher says. "It will also feature podcasts, video, audio, etc., and, of course, it will also have the obligatory space for comments. The Internet and Word Press are inherently flexible, so I suspect the site will evolve over the next few weeks and months."

Expect in particular to see much coverage of the local club scene. "As far as [Cooper and I are] concerned," Pitcher says, "that's where most of the musical magic in Nashville happens."
