Weekend/A-Trak video

April 2, 2010

This weekend has a nice offering of musical goodness if you’re in Nashville. As of now I don’t have any specific plans other than Saturday, but first here’s tonight’s items of interest-

Heartbeater, Trophy Wives, The Goldroom (the Goldroom had to cancel), Waxeater @ The End. Heartbeater is becoming a fairly well-established live act in town, and they’re currently working on a debut album.

Majestico, My Tyger @ The Basement. Majestico is simply awesome, and though I’ve only seen My Tyger once at an 8 off 8th, they don’t disappoint, either.

Finally, my likely destination will be the Exit/In, where Wax Fang, How I Became the Bomb, and the Non-Commissioned Officers are playing their rescheduled show from Jan. (It was snowed out due to Snowmageddon ’10.) I also hear that Bawston Sean will be DJing before and between bands. A good time for sure!

For Saturday-

Fever Queen, How Cozy!, The Grayces, and Hanzelle @ The End. This is a benefit for the Tennessee Teens Rock Camp, which is a new co-ed offshoot of the now famous Southern Girls Rock & Roll Camp. Seriously, if the fact that Fever Queen is a new Cortney Tidwell side-project isn’t enough to get you there, then surely you’ll go and pay the meager $5 cover/donation simply to support such an awesome program. And if you are around and able this summer, I also highly suggest volunteering for one or the other (or both!). You don’t have to teach an instrument or workshop either- there are plenty of other non-skill-requiring volunteer positions.

I will not be able to make it to this show as I’m attending someone’s private birthday shindig. But that’s okay, because I will likely be volunteering for TNTRC this summer.

A couple of random links of interest-

Fool’s Gold blog posted a pretty cool video/interview snippet of DJ A-Trak, as well as another video about his new project with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. It sounds totally off the wall and random, but it’s surprisingly good. Just be open minded and check it out…

I didn’t have time to find enough science-y links/content to fill it’s own post, so here’s your random science-related tidbit of the day: Here’s a video of the world’s largest artificial tornado, created with the ventilation system inside the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Germany. I think vortices are among the most beautiful things in nature, and have always been completely mesmerized by them. (Via Kottke.org and BLDGBLOG)

Have a great weekend!
