Friday Morning Music Shuffle - Live My Life Mix



So another week of Ear to the Ground Shuffles comes to a close.  I am a bit short on time so I thought I would try something... a 3 Words post.  I will attempt to comment on each song using just three words. This may be more time consuming than writing a long post, but here goes nothing...

Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle - Roots Reality Mix



I had the great pleasure last night of venturing to one my favorite spots in East Nashville - The Family Wash for their regular Tuesday night Short Sets, and I got to see Joe Nolan perform.  He has been featured a couple of times recently here at E2TG, and it was great to hear him play live and to finally meet him in person...

Due to some unforeseen and unfortunate events, I am shorter than usual on time for today's shuffle...   So let's do what we can with what we have to work with... a stunningly diverse and awesome shuffle today...

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Yacht Mix



Last week, one of the daily shuffles was heavily weighted toward Blues music.  Today, things turn more in a Country direction.  Of course this is Ear to the Ground, so it's never cut and dry...

Monday Morning Music Shuffle - Jack Chick vs. Twin Peaks with a Twist Mix



I had a great night hanging out with a bunch of friends at a venerated Music Row bar and watching about a dozen or more of those friends make awesome music....

We have a delightful shuffle today with some cool songs and some cool pop culture references.  The shuffle contains old and new music of differing genres and points of view all existing in some semblance of harmony on my phone's music player.   If these songs can all keep along, why can't we?

Friday Morning Music Shuffle - Hollerin' Mix



First things first:  The Grey A have a brand new video for their timely song "Dumb Fool".  It's a fun film noir style video which includes our old friend Howard Rabach pounding on a table.  Check it out here:





Second of all, I had a great time seeing Darrin Bradbury and The Fran's Eastside Super-High Band deliver a stellar set at The 5 Spot last night. 


Careful readers will recall that back in September yours truly had two reviews featured on the No Depression website.  One was for The Grey A's album My Country and the other was for Darrin Bradbury's album Motel Oatmeal. 

Now there is another coincidental connection between the two - if you look at picture above, at the extreme right of the picture - kind of in the shadows on the picture is Trombone player Diego Vasquez who joined the Super-High band last night and also played with The Grey A when I saw them at The Stone Fox (and played on The Grey A album I believe).


Finally, I need to announce that there are big, big things in store for #E2TG in the coming new year.  (Translation: I am basically punting the last month and a half of 2014 so expect nothing from me until after New Years by which time I hope you will have forgotten that I promised "big, big things") 
Seriously, the Shuffles will continue unabated... well mostly unabated.... well just somewhat abated... well at least occasionally unabated...

Thursday Morning Music Shuffle - This is the Blues Mix



Nashville - come out tonight to The Five Spot in East Nashville at 9:00pm for an awesome show. The Harmed Brothers, Charlie and the Foxtrots, and #E2TG favorite Darrin Bradbury who will be backed by the star-studded (and stud-starred) Fran's Eastside Super-High Band!

Apologies to Tim Carroll (who by the way is part of the aforementioned Super-High Band) for appropriating the title of one of his songs for the subtitle of today's shuffle.  The song isn't in the shuffle, but it came to my find, when I heard the high concentration of Blues numbers in the first part of this morning's shuffle. 

Shuffle Up!
