First off, I wanted to give out a show alert for tonight. The late show at The 5 Spot in East Nashville will feature a CD Release show by Erica Blinn for her new album Better Than Gold. You may recall, we premiered her song, "Dance with the One (Who Brought You Here)" last September.
Closing the night will be another local favorites, Andrew Leahey and the Homestead.
Opening the show will be Memphis based and Fat Possum recording artist Liz Brasher - who I read is making her Nashville debut. I may be wrong about that. Here's some information about Liz Brasher - NPR says, "Good-God-Hallelujah... Brasher shouts, rocks, rolls, and tears it up on stage; her music will dig down deep to touch your soul." A Memphian of Dominican descent who grew up singing in Spanish in the church, Brasher synthesizes the sounds of of '60s garage, girl group sounds, dirty blues, holy roller church music, and Bob Dylan into something completely her own. And below is a video for her song "Body of Mine"
Should be a great night of music.
Today is Wednesday so let's get "Wild" and shuffle from all the songs on my phone memory.
I'm am just a bit rushed, so bear with me...
