Nashville Sunday Night Presents: Houndmouth @ 3rd and Lindsley
Mar 8 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

houndmouth

That first November 2011 night, when it all fell together at the Green House, was nothing more complicated than four friends playing music, armed with something to drink and a curiosity about what might happen. They were the generation who has come of age in the new economy, already adept at shuffling jobs and get-bys, firmly acclimated to the diminished expectations that come with growing up somewhere the rest of the world assumes is nowhere. Which, in this case, is New Albany, Indiana.

Houndmouth, then, knew each other from…around. Matt Myers and Zak Appleby had played in cover bands together for years, schooled in blues and classic rock and Motown, toughened by indifferent audiences and the clatter of empty bottles. Matt and Katie Toupin had worked as an acoustic duo for three years, when she wasn’t on the road tending to a straight job. Katie and Shane Cody had gone to high school together, before Shane disappeared off to Chicago and New York to study audio engineering. In the beginning it was Shane and Matt who’d started knocking around at first, just drums and guitar, once Shane got home and free of a brief bluegrass flirtation.

The rest happened in a tumble, Zak and Katie switching from guitars to bass and keyboards, respectively. Four months later, their homemade EP in hand, Houndmouth made the pilgrimage to South By Southwest. Their booking agent convinced Rough Trade’s Geoff Travis to come have a listen. Of such things are dreams made. Months of conversation and a proper studio later, their debut album, From the Hills Below the City, will be released by Rough Trade.

“We lucked out,” Matt says. “We knew we were making good music. We knew we had something. But we didn’t know it would escalate so quickly. Always the element of luck.”

Before and after that bit of luck, Houndmouth have been on the road, building their audience. Working. Opening for the Drive-By Truckers, the Lumineers, the Alabama Shakes, Lucero, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Headlining on their own. Turning heads.

“You know good art when you see it,” says Newport Folk Festival booker Jay Sweet, an early adopter, “and you know good food when you taste it. Well, you also know good music when you hear it, and when I first heard Houndmouth it was like freshest tasting art I had heard in many moons. A true musical omnivore’s delight.”

“I’m going down where nobody knows me,” they sing during the jaunty chorus of “On the Road.” The opening track to From the Hills Below the City, which is more or less the relationship New Albany has to Louisville, across the river: “I had a job had to leave behind me…I had to move to another city.” A two and a half minute slightly bent pop confection, conscious of all kinds of music which went before. Self-conscious about nothing, not even the neo-rap cutting contest that snaps across one break. A blues for now, then.

Nashville Repertory Theatre Presents: Death of a Salesman @ Andrew Johnson Theater
Mar 12 – Mar 13 all-day

death-salesman-200x200

Death of a Salesman will be at Andrew Johnson Theater in Nashville, TN – March 12 through March 28, 2015.  Times vary for each show.  Click here for showtime.

With its 1949 Broadway opening, Death of a Salesman struck a chord with audiences, and each generation since has embraced the play as an expression of their own struggle to achieve the American dream.  In this Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero in Willy Loman—the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine. Death of a Salesman compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, within the unstable walls of a suburban American home.

The dragons are coming! Get ready for the 9th Annual Cumberland River Compact Dragon Boat Festival, Nashville’s premiere river event.

On Saturday, September 12, 2015, at Riverfront Park, you can take the ride of your life with 50 teams on the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville right in front of LP Field. Thousands of spectators will join you in a large viewing area where they can cheer paddlers, support the advocacy work of the Cumberland River Compact, and celebrate the long tradition of dragon boat racing with a cultural festival unlike any other in Music City.

All of the festivities are within walking distance to the city’s top restaurants, souvenir shops, and downtown Music City attractions. Bring the whole family and plan on spending the day.

Dragon boat racing is one of the fastest growing sport in the world and, without a doubt, the most fun, unique cultural event you’ll experience, thanks to its adrenaline-pumping action. Dragon boat racing grows in popularity each year, with more than 50 million people in 63 countries participating. Teams of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steersperson race in authentic Hong Kong-style, 46-foot-long dragon boats. All ages, skill levels and physiques can paddle and compete, making it the ultimate team building sport, requiring synchronicity and finesse, more than power to win.

Find out why you can’t miss this event. Bring your Team. Bring your Spirit. Bring your best.
