Parlour & Juke is the reason my hair always looks so fantastic (seriously, have you guys seen my hair? shout-out to Savannah!). With an expert staff, offbeat and captivating decor, and a cozy little location on Cannery Row (not to mention the free beer you’re offered while you wait!), it should come as no surprise that you’ll often rub shoulders with an eclectic mix of local (and, sometimes, famous) musicians, industry people, artists, business owners and just generally cool and creative types. I’m certainly not the only one taking notice in how great the salon is- you can check out plugs in GQ, Lucky, and on The Nashville Scene‘s Best Of lists, among others. It should also come as no surprise that, with a salon so welcoming and hip, and a clientele so interesting and diverse, Parlour & Juke began hosting shows after hours. Dubbed Live Cuts, these concerts regularly feature local artists, inexpensive admission, and a couple of free beers to boot.
In the spirit of the holiday season, Parlour & Juke is hosting a special Live Cuts Christmas TONIGHT, featuring The Hillbilly Casino and completely free of charge. And, as if fantastic and free tunes aren’t reason enough for you to check the show out, you get two free drinks with your free admission (space is limited, so head over on the early side!). What’s that you say, it’s Christmas weekend and you’re just way too busy and even free music and a couple of cheap beers isn’t enticing enough to drag you down to Cannery Row? Well, scrooge, what if I told you it wasn’t just a couple of cheap beers, but Belle Meade Bourbon provided by The Spirit Run? AND, if you bring a gift for Toys for Tots (which you should absolutely do anyway, c’mon, be a good person- the season of giving and whatnot!) you’ll score a THIRD free drink ticket. How could you possibly pass that up??
Providing the entertainment for the evening, The Hillbilly Casino (who just played Exit/In Thursday night with Reverend Horton Heat) are one of those real-deal Tennessee rockabilly bands you can frequently catch playing on Broadway (a breath of fresh air compared to a lot of the other bands performing in the proximity), but are so much more fun in a less-touristy environment. With a distinctive punk-tinged attitude, throwback rockabilly sound, and live show that just begs to get the party started, I can’t think of a better act for this type of show. They’ve also got a Christmas album under their belts, so definitely expect some holiday favorites (and, you know, definitely some odes to cheap beer), rockabilly style.
The shindig kicks off at 8:30PM (doors at 8- but as I said, space is limited) and it’s totally free. Also, it’s worth noting that it’s open to everyone, you don’t have to be a P&J customer. Happy holidays!
