Weekend shows/Vandy announcement/I’m hipper than Rivers Cuomo
October 22, 2010
According to the Nashville Cream, I’m hipper than Rivers Cuomo. They also agreed with NME’s sentiments about Caitlin Rose being cooler than Cuomo. Caitlin is way cooler than me, though.
Tune In Music City tweeted the following yesterday: “Press conference at Vandy this Monday to announce a huge music event. ‘It’s been over 29 years’ they say. We’d like 2 know what. Wouldn’t U?” Well, that’s not obvious at all… just read Adam Gold’s Cream post about it if you’re still in the dark. I do know the answer to this question, but as an employee of Vanderbilt, I can neither officially confirm nor deny these rumors.
Now for some stuff to get into this weekend:
The 5. 6. 7. 8’s are at Third Man Records. 9pm, $5 (Yeah, it’s that band from Kill Bill and the Vonage commercials.)
Passion Pit, Snoop Dogg, and B.o.B. at Vanderbilt Memorial Gym. It’s the annual Commodore Quake. Doors at 6:30pm, tix $20-$50 for non-students.
I’ll be at Mercy Lounge snapping pics of Kurt Vile, who has support from The Soft Pack and Purling Hiss. 9pm, $10 adv. $12 dos.
The 1st annual Circuit Bender’s Ball at Open Lot. This is more than just a show. There are workshops for all ages from 2-6pm, where you can learn about circuit bending and how to make various electronic musical devices. Performances start at 6:30 and run till midnight. If you have no idea what circuit bending is, click here. Trust me, this will be an interesting and fun event.
One more thing- early voting is in full swing in TN! That means you can drop by and vote at any of the 9 early voting stations at your convenience (within the scheduled hours) up until next Thursday, Oct. 28th. If you were worried about long line at the polls on election day, worry no more because with early voting the lines are always much shorter. There’s simply no excuse- be a worthy citizen and do your part- VOTE.
Have a great weekend!
