Happenings /// Homeshake at Cobra, 12/5

Shoegaze and dream pop appears poised to reach its most nebulous state as a genre in the coming years, as the “sound” that was once confined to tube amps and fuzz pedals manipulated to a pristine tone have now entered a new age of jazz riffs and funk lines (which is pretty kick ass, in all honesty). 561 more words

Happenings /// Jonny Fritz at Exit/In, 11/1

Long before the East Side became desirable and Downtown became the Bachelorette Capital of the World, there was the Stadium Inn. One of Nashville’s last bastions of the seedy civility that’s managed to wither its way through heavy gentrification, deadbeat and down-on-their-luckers have ambled in and out of the winsomely debauched hotel. 714 more words
