Running short on time... Another awesome Nashville night of music. First Allen Thompson and Brian Ritchey (backed by Sheriff Scott and the Deputies closing out Ritchey's month-long residency at The 5 Spot. Then, it was off to the American Legion in Inglewood for Microwave Mountain (who proved worthy of the buzz they have been generating here in Nashville) and Buck N' Stuff (who closed out their own month-long residency in fine style).
Featured Friday is here and as I said, time is short... let's go!
