This Weekend In Nashville, August 10-12

It’s a relatively light weekend for my music picks, but here you go.

We’ve already told you about The Black Angels, Night Beats, Paperhead show over at Exit/In, but there are some other options that you should think about.

Glossary & Jasmin Kaset are going to be ripping it up on Friday night at The High Watt if you need more pop and less psych rock.  Glossary was just named as one of Paste’s top 12 Tennessee bands that you should listen to now, but that article was for those of us that haven’t been checking out Glossary for the past 14 years.  Jasmin Kaset is equally intriguing.  Especially, as a segue into the Sunday night show at 3rd & Lindsley below.  Jasmin’s Hell And Half Of Jordan is below for your listening pleasure.  Things get started around 9pm, and tickets are $7.


Dawes is making another swing through the music city on Sunday night, and will be playing at Cannery Ballroom with Simone Felice and Aaron Embry.  Dawes is still out touring in support of their 2011 release Nothing Is Wrong, and this will be their second (or is it third) trip through Nashville on this tour.  Regardless of their van’s mileage, their fanbase, venues, and festival stages are growing for good reason… they are a really fun band to see live.  You can snag your $15 tickets to that show here.  Things get started at 8pm. 

If 10,000 Maniacs defined alternative chick pop, then Edie Brickell took it to grunge pop, and Sixpence None The Richer took it to the romantic comedy pop.  You are probably a fan of this music without even knowing it.  Just have a listen to the track below while you are buying those tickets to her 3rd & Lindsley show on Sunday night at 8pm.


Other than that Nashville, there is no reason to compete with the East Nashville Tomato Festival on Saturday….  Get your weekend on, but save yourself for Dirty Projectors w/ Pop Etc. on Monday and Sebadoah on Tuesday!

Have your say
