Rainy morning in Nashville.
Had a fun night last night. Recorded Saturday's Double Shot show, made it to The Family Wash in time to catch most of Amelia White and Sergio Webb being awesome. Then headed to The 5 Spot for the first $2 Tuesday of the new year. Derek Hoke actually opened for a change and was accompanied by Paul Niehaus - wonderful. Adrian + Meredith always terrific. Vandoliers from Texas - really enjoyed, Erica Blinn - great set, and The Mulligan Brothers (Mobile, AL) closed things out in fne style. Great people and good times. One of my favorite hangs.
We have a Wild Wednesday shuffle which entails shuffling up every single song in my phone memory and seeing what comes up...
"Jack the Poor Hungarian Immigrant Boy" by Smokey the Firebear (ft. Photographer)
"Puffy Groups of Particles Suspended in the Stratosphere" by Smokey the Firebear
Whenever a shuffle starts with two songs from the artist, I always question whether the random shuffle was actually turned on... it was... About a couple of noise tracks from Smokey The Firebear's BNGFKR album. The album is made up of sound collages.
"Down" by Run the Jewels (feat. Joi)
Everybody has been raving about the new Run the Jewels album Run the Jewels 3, so I had to check it out. Digging it so far. I will check out more...
