Another week... last night, I experienced another amazing night of music on the east side of Music City. Allen Thompson and Darrin Bradbury opened up for the legendary Don Schlitz at the East Nashville Songwriter's Club.
Tonight, Darrin and Erin Rae will be joining Kelsey Waldon for week two of her residency at the new Basement East (The Beast).
"Bent Up Halo" by Broken Guru
The title track from the debut CD from NYC Alt-Rock band Broken Guru!
"The Secret" by Artur U and the New City Limits
More great music from the Turn Off the Lights EP from Artur U and the New City Limits who hail from the capital city of Finland.
"Broken-Hearted Man" by Carl Anderson
A starkly powerful song from the recent album, Risk of Loss. Highly recommended by #E2TG.
"Cooldown" by Burning Bridges
I don't always listen to Metal, but when I do, it is often this early band from Ear to the Ground favorite The Danbury Lie....
"Beneath the Brine" by The Family Crest
A pretty cool track from the San Francisco Baroque Pop band, The Family Crest. This was the title track from their 2014 album.
"Afterparty" by Burning Bridges
How about that? A second appearance by Burning Bridges. I dig this song a bunch. Be sure to check out not just this band, but all of the great music by the enigmatically proficient (or is that proficiently enigmatic) The Danbury Lie.
"Foot of Pride" (Bob Dylan Cover) by Lou Reed
A major reason for their only being eight tracks in today's shuffle. An eight plus minute cover of this outtake from Bob Dylan's Infidels album as performed by the late, great Lou Reed. This from a 30th Anniversary Dylan tribute concert. Per the You Tube comments, Reed is backed by Booker T and the MGs, but I am sure my Dylan expert readers will correct me if I got any of that information wrong. So don't quote me until they've had a chance to fact check me.
"Trying to Get to Memphis" by Kevin Gordon
We close things out with a track from Kevin Gordon's Gloryland album. If you will be in Nashville for any of the next couple of Thursdays, Gordon has a residency at The 5 Spot, which I can very highly recommend.
