[Preview] Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender | This Weekend @ Opryland Resort & More

Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender

The same Nashvillians who brought us the Muddy Roots Music Festival are putting on the inaugural Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender and Car Show May 1-2 at Opryland Resort. It will be a weekend of rockabilly, country, western swing and hillbilly boogie complemented by indoor and outdoor car shows, a pin-up pageant, and a fashion show. In celebration of the ’40s and ’50s sounds that built Nashville, the festival features headliners like Don Maddox, The Paladins, Johnny Powers, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys, and Rosie Flores. If you have been to Muddy Roots Music Festival before, you know this will be a good time.

The weekend festival kicks off this Thursday, April 30 at the Nashville Palace across the street from Opryland. Friday and Saturday evenings the official festival will be taking place throughout Opryland Resort (along with the car show on Saturday), and then it all wraps up on Sunday with a church service at the Texas Troubadour Theater and the final shows in the evening at the Johnny Cash Museum. Needless to say, there’s going to be lots of great music and sights, so check out below to get some more details and grab your tickets.

We got the chance to see Damien Rice’s sold out show with folk duo My Bubba last Wednesday at The Ryman. Rice, an accomplished Irish singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, clearly has a massive, enthusiastic following in Nashville, and My Bubba, the Icelandic/Swedish outfit who opened the night, were a very pleasant new discovery and no doubt earned a lot of new fans. The house was packed and boiled over with enthusiasm all evening.

Check out below for our full review and photos. You’re gonna want to see these photos. The lighting was nuts.

Country music is clearly not our thing, but we’ve always had a guilty, if not begrudging, fondness for some of the great songwriters who comfortably waltz around in that genre. That is why we jumped at the opportunity to attend an album release party at BMI for Robert Earl Keen’s recent release of bluegrass covers entitled Happy Prisoner. We approached the night with fresh ears, not having heard the album yet, but we recognized some old bluegrass favorites and absolutely loved what he and his stellar band had done with them.

Check out below for a video, some thoughts, and photos by Sundel Perry.

As expected, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield’s performance in tribute to Elliot Smith on Tuesday turned out to be special evening. The show took place at TPAC’s intimate James K. Polk Theater in a kitchen. That’s right, a kitchen.
