THE RUNDOWN 1.9.2017 – 1.15.2017

Rundown

DARN RUNDOWN. Here we are again. A special shoutout to people off Facebook – this is dedicated to you this week (you know who you are and are probably acutely aware harhar). Alright so this week, I’m talkin bout the worldwide debut of Spodee Girl, the Marlee-fronted sibling of Jimmy-approved punkers Spodee Boy, at the Cobra. Ranch Ghost plays an in-store at Third Man to kick off ur million-show-TGIF — Kandyland film premiere later, East Room show too, and did I mention Dave Bersell is moving to New Yak? (crying tears as a good one leaves for a new opportunity). Say your goodbyes at his reading as part of Ursus Americanus series. One love to my people and a word of encouragement I overheard someone at Turnip Truck say this week “I told my dad creatives are seriously important” lolol too good

THE RUNDOWN 1.2.2017 – 1.8.2017

Rundown

A month has passed since Nashville FD’s crackdown on local DIY venues, and the effects are overwhelmingly apparent. The shows aren’t nil though, and those same kind promoters from before are already finding ways to dodge the snag. DOG from New York play at Betty’s tomorrow, Soccer Mommy play the End on Thursday, and Roger Ebert’s 1970 cult classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is the midnight movie at Belcourt on Friday. Our lord and savior Willie Nelson plays War Memorial on Saturday while our prodigal son DOMO celebrates his 21st b-day at Dream House and there’s a good house (???) show out there if you know who to ask. Sunday is a Monster Truck Rally, cos why not?

Well, take a look at the shows below and you’ll see that it’s definitely Christmas week. Things are D-E-A-D dead aside from a scattering of holiday shows around town. Take the time to hang with your homies that are back home for break, finish your shopping, maybe start thinking about those New Years resolutions. It’s A Wonderful Life is at Belcourt this week and I bet your parents would love to go with you — jussst saying. Alright, Happy Holidays sweet peas. Be merry and bright.
