TWiN | This Weekend In Nashville | March 6 – 8

TWiN - Design by Gravity Plan

It looks like it is going to warm up again this weekend, and it’s just in time to get us out of the house to catch some live music.  This weekend features a make up date for Lucie Silvas, the Empress Of Soul, and, sure to be incredible performances for the lucky ticket holders to the sold out shows from The Lone Bellow, Steve Earle, and Beth Hart.  If you didn’t plan ahead or none of these are going to float your boat though, don’t fret, there are tons of great shows spanning all the genres happening around town this weekend.  Let us help you make your plans with our staff picks in this week’s edition of TWiN!

FRIDAY

LUCIE SILVAS
@ Soulshine Pizza Factory | 7pm | FREE | All Ages

It looks like the weather is going to clear up so we can finally catch the Lucie Silvas performance as Lightning 100’s local artist of the week from Icepocalypse week.  You can check out her recently released rehearsal video for “Unbreakable Us” below to see why this Kiwi-by-way-of-London Music City transplant is a perfect fit for New Nashville.  After you have a listen, you’ll know why we are starting our weekend at Soulshine tonight. [MH]

STEVE EARLE SOLO AND ACOUSTIC w/ EMILY EARLE
@ City Winery | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages

Alternative country legend Steve Earle is playing a sold-out two-night stand at City Winery this weekend in support of his new record Terraplane. Earle’s sixteenth album was recorded in Nashville, and sees him paying homage to the blues greats he listened to growing up in Texas. Earle’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash and the Pretenders, as he’s spent his long career mining the traditions of American roots music and combining those sounds with an alternative rock edge. [JSa]

THE LONE BELLOW w/ ODESSA
@ Exit/In | 9pm | SOLD OUT | 18+

After quickly creating a name for themselves here in Nashville with stints at The Basement and Live on the Green last year, it’s no surprise that The Lone Bellow’s show at Exit/In tonight is sold out. If you were fortunate enough to get tickets, brace yourself to be moved by the trio’s beautiful harmonies and heartfelt lyrics. You might even want to bring some tissues, too. Lord knows I’ll be crying.  [MG]

CRAFT SPELLS w/ THE BILINDA BUTCHERS, THE KEEPS
@ The High Watt | 9pm | $10 | 18+

Dreamy pop sounds dominate The High Watt tonight as Northern California acts Craft Spells and The Bilinda Butchers join forces with local pop outfit, The Keeps.  The sunny lush sounds are just about perfect to get you out of the lull of being snowed in for two days.  Have a listen to “Nausea” from Craft Spells below to see what we’re talking about.  [MH]

LUKE ROBERTS w/ SUN SEEKER, PHANTOM FARMER
@ The Stone Fox | 9pm | $8 | 18+

Native East Nashvillian, folk/Americana singer songwriter Luke Roberts headlines a great low dough show at one of our favorite venues in town, The Stone Fox. Alt indie rockers Sun Seeker and cosmic folk/gospel crooner Phantom Farmer round out the bill that is a steal a only $8, so be there! [JR]

GLADYS KNIGHT
@ TPAC | 8pm | $40-85 | All Ages

Yes, you read that correctly. The Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight, will be performing tonight over at TPAC, and somehow this show isn’t quite sold out yet. You probably remember Knight from her success with Gladys Knight and the Pips, a highly successful group with Motown Records back in the 1970s and ’80s. This show represents a rare chance to see a living legend, and we definitely encourage considering checking out Gladys Knight if you’ve got the cash.   [JS]

SATURDAY

BETH HART w/ MATT ANDERSEN
@ 3rd & Lindsley | $25 | SOLD OUT | All Ages

As we mentioned under Friday’s listings, this night’s show is SOLD OUT as well. Next time Beth Hart comes to town you’ll know not to delay on tickets. [JR]

MOE.
@ Marathon Music Works | 8pm | $22-$25 | 18+

Shit’s about to get extra crunchy at Marathon maaaaannnn, thanks to a two set evening with Moe., one of the sweetest jam bands active in the scene today. Tickets are still available, so if you want to get you’re hippie on, or you just dig groovy, dance worthy tunes, get your money right and then get to the show. [JR]

BUFFALO RODEO (EP RELEASE SHOW) w/ KANSAS BIBLE COMPANY, TWIGGS
@ The High Watt | 9pm | $7 | 18+

It’s a very special evening indeed for Bowling Green, KY, psych rockers Buffalo Rodeo. It’s the release show for their new EP, 123 Water, and the first fifty people there get an exclusive copy of their Warehouse Sessions recordings with hand-drawn album art. Look for No Country Presents alum Kansas Bible Company and alt country punk rockers Twiggs to kick things off on a rowdy night of tunes!  [JR]

STEVE EARLE SOLO AND ACOUSTIC w/ THE MASTERSONS
@ City Winery | 8pm | SOLD OUT | All Ages

This is the second night of Steve Earle‘s two-night stand at City Winery, but if you weren’t lucky enough to grab tickets already it looks like you might not make it to see the singer-songwriter play tracks from his new blues record (though the City Winery’s waitlist is an option). Earle was famously tutored by Townes Van Zandt, served time in prison for narcotics possession, and was a guest star on HBO’s The Wire at different points in his colorful career founding and expanding the alt country genre. [JSa]

NAVAEH, CLOVER CLUB, DEBUTANTE
@ Turn One | 9pm | $5 | 21+

If you haven’t made it out to Turn One yet, we highly recommend coming this Saturday night. The lineup featured Navaeh, a popular local two-piece rock outfit. Supporting them will be two other fantastic acts from around here, the rocking Clover Club and indie group Debutante. The fine people over at Palaver Records have put together this show, and it’s going to be a blast. If you’re looking for cheap cover and beer prices, but still want to see actually talented musicians, this is the show for you. [JS]

SUNDAY

HOUNDMOUTH w/ TWIN LIMB
@ 3rd & Lindsley | 8pm | $12 | All Ages

We last saw Houndmouth when they blew us away opening for the Drive-By Truckers at the Ryman in October.  So, we are very excited to see them headlining this week’s Nashville Sunday Night show at 3rd & Lindsley.  We love these shows because they start on time, earlier than most, feature great bands for a reasonable cover and Yeungling’s are $2.  Opening is Twin Limb, a band formed in 2013 that is also from the Louisville area with a sound that is billed as a “heavy dose of dark, layered, almost psychedelic folk”.  Houndmouth will be returning to the Late  Show with David Lettterman on March 31.  Their headlining tour also includes performances at Bonnaroo, Hangout and Forecastle festivals this summer.  Check out the video for “Sedona” off Houndmouth’s new album which will be out March 17th.  [JMo]

THE DEAD DEADS, LAUREN STRANGE, ANCHOR THIEVES, SHEEP SHIFTER, BLACK TAR PROPHETS
@ The Basement | 8pm | FREE | 21+

If you’re a frequent reader of our TWiN posts, than you already know the deal. If not, we’ll go over it again. Every Sunday night, at The Basement, five bands, no cover, craft beer specials. This week’s Sunday Post features local punk rocker, and former No Country contributor, Lauren Strange, and heavy rockers The Dead Deads for starts. Get their early for all the merriment, what do you have to lose? [JR]

OGINALII, OJR, STEPHEN MAGE
@ Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery | 9pm | FREE | All Ages

Looking for an adventure on Sunday but low on funds? Make the trek out to Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery’s new digs at 515 Thompson Lane for a free night of new talent. The evening consists of Oginalii (“my friend” in Cherokee) a five member collaboration of haunting Americana, the unhinged, howling psych-blues of OJR, and one-man guitar extravaganza Stephen Mage. It’s a thoughtful lineup of sounds from the fringes that is sure to send some goosebumps down a few necks. On top of that, it’s BYOB, so check it out and earn some street cred. [TJJ]
