This weekend is crazy in Nashville
September 3, 2010
The biggest deal tonight is Nashville Cream’s 4 year birthday bash at Exit/In. The lineup features My So-Called Band covering Weezer’s Pinkerton, Tristen, Shaky Voices, and DJ sets from the Grimey’s staff. I will be running a photobooth, so be sure to come say hi. They also have tons of awesome door prizes, including a killer vinyl pack from Infinity Cat records.
Pardon the self-promotion here, but I have to mention that I also have an after-hours DJ gig tonight. It’s with the awesome Jane Dupree of Disco Terror Squad, and it’s at 508 Late Nite Lounge. It’s at (duh) 508 Leah Ave. and I spin from 2-3am. Party till the wee hours!
I have to also mention that the awesome Jasmin Kaset is releasing an album tonight at the Basement. She’ll be joined by Majestico and The Mattoid. I didn’t even know she was working on a record, but according to the Cream Jordan Lehning of the Non-Comms/Make Out With Violence fame produced it. That sounds like a match made in heaven to me, even if her voice sometimes gets a little too child-like for my taste. I stress sometimes.
In addition to the onslaught of releases that are happening this weekend, Kyle Andrews will be celebrating the release of his Kangaroo EP tonight at Mercy Lounge. He’ll be joined by Heypenny, Mother/Father, and Gold Motel.
The main story Saturday is the triumphant return of Left Can Dance at La Paz (formerly Ombi Bar, a.k.a. the original home of Left Can Dance). The disco/indie/post-punk dance trio will be returning to the decks for the first time in at least a year, if memory serves, for this event which they’re calling “Disco Ball & Chain.” It’s sort of a “pre-celebration” of the marriage of Sam Patton and Kelly Taylor, which comprise 2/3 of the trio. This will kick off about 9pm and cost $5 to get in. They also have some drink specials up their sleeve but I’m not sure what they are, but I’m sure it will involve margaritas, so prepare your liver accordingly.
That about does it for this weekend. Let’s party.
