Margo Price @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / June 14 & 15, 2016

Having missed the early bus on Nashville’s Margo Price, I decided to hop on a later one when I saw the announcement of her show at Third and Lindsley. I knew it would sell out fast as did an added second night. The latter show would also be a special mid-week broadcast by local radio […]

American Aquarium @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / August 23, 2015

I had only once before seen Raleigh-based American Aquarium. (The rather unusual-sounding band name actually comes from a line in a Wilco song.) This was back in 2010 when they were part of a marathon six-hour “Gram National” concert celebrating the music of Mr. Parsons at East Nashville’s Five Spot. (They squeezed “Streets of Baltimore” […]

Josh Rouse @ Third & Lindsley / Nashville TN / June 20, 2015

Despite the fact that he now lives in Spain, Josh Rouse will forever be a Music City resident in our hearts. On the final night of a brief US tour to promote his latest release, The Embers of Time, Rouse returned home to the Third & Lindsley stage where he last appeared two years ago. […]

R.I.P.: Ian McLagan

It has been a tough week for Rolling Stones’ sidemen now with the passing of The Small Faces / Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan. Following the death of sax player Bobby Keys, British-born McLagan died in his longtime home of Austin, Texas at age 69 after suffering a stroke. After the Faces disbanded in 1975, McLagan […]

World Party @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / June 5, 2014

I discovered World Party when I had a “High Fidelity-moment” hearing their first record played at Austin’s Waterloo Records. While my initial attraction was a lead vocalist sounding like Mick Jagger, the more I listened, the more I liked their sound which turned out to be closer to the Beatles than the Stones. I bought […]

Glenn Tilbrook @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / September 17, 2013

I should probably issue a disclaimer with this post that I have been a colossal Squeeze fan since their first record in 1978. Over the years, the band’s working status has been a roller coaster ride. Fortunately, about a dozen or so years ago, the band’s main voice, Glenn Tilbrook, started touring on his own. […]

John Cowan 60th Birthday Bash to Benefit Our Kids @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / August 27, 2013

I have limited familiarity with John Cowan. I know that he was a member of the ground-breaking New Grass Revival and that he was currently a part of what today tours as The Doobie Brothers.  I also know he is a gifted singer having seen him perform with Nashville’s The Long Players classic album covers […]

The Wild Feathers @ Third and Lindsley / Nashville TN / July 21, 2013

I was really taken with The Wild Feathers’ song “The Ceiling” which was getting heavy airplay in Music City on Lightning 100. It’s a well-crafted tune that can really get stuck in your head.  After seeing the Nashville-based Feathers at the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, I thought I’d just seen the next band to break […]

Seven Nights to Rock: Music City Mike’s Weeklong Adventure

In the late 70’s, a New Jersey music writer with the pen name of “Everynight Charlie” tried to go to a concert every night. I often wonder if this is what my life would be like if I were single. Although live music every night is not my ultimate desire, with my wife out of […]

Josh Rouse @ Grimey’s New and Preloved Music (April 20, 2013) and Third & Lindsley (April 21, 2013) / Nashville TN

I once said to Josh Rouse “You are my favorite artist younger than me.” Despite a string of recent records that weren’t totally to my liking, his latest LP, The Happiness Waltz, and his recent live Nashville appearances have reaffirmed the truth of that statement. The native Nebraskan, currently living in Spain, returned to his […]
