Lightning 100 was pretty pumped to get The Sheepdogs int0 their studio before their show at Exit/In! The guys did a quick interview with Lt. Dan and then performed “The Way It Is” and “Alright Ok” live in the studio! For more information on The Sheepdogs, visit their website at thesheepdogs.com

Matt Vasquez from Delta Spirit joined us in the studio before his show at Cannery Ballroom. The other guys apparently wanted to “sleep in”, but we’ve just got a hunch that they remembered the small size of our studio. Check out this solo performance of the sad version of “California” and Matt’s first solo live performance of “Yahama”. We’ve been playing “California” on Lightning 100, any other songs on the album you would like to hear? Leave a comment below and let us know. Click here to see our other in-studios with Delta Spirit.
Justin Townes Earle stopped by the studio to record an episode of Music Business Radio. He showed up a little early so we got him to play a few songs on air and talk about his new record “Nothing’s Ever Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now.” Check out these performances of ”Memphis in the Rain” and “Am I That Lonely Tonight?”
What do you think of the new album? We are playing “Look the Other Way”, any other tracks we should add? We’ve been a big fan of Justin Townes Earle since the beginning of his career. Check out some of our earlier in-studio performances with over 40,000 views.
Local artist Jessie Baylin stopped by the Lightning 100 studio after performing at Nashville Sunday Night. Jessie Baylin just released her debut album, “Little Spark” on Verve Forcast. Jessie was able to perform the song “Hurry Hurry” in the studio before the tornado siren/EAS warning which interrupted her during “I Feel That Too.” Kind of ironic songs to be playing during a tornado warning? We found a version of the song filmed at Grimey’s New and Preloved Music. Special thanks to NashvilleLance for filming at Grimey’s!
