The Butler Does It: Landry Butler at This Week's Third Thursdays at The Building



Country Life was happy to get word that Landry Butler — founding member of Untitled, longtime Nashville visual and performance artist, and instigator of the mysterious musical ensemble known as the Inglewood Social Club — will be doing a rare live performance of his spoken-word set Back and Black at Thursday's Third Thursdays at The Building (formerly Billups Art), 1008 Woodland St.

"From his stage-fright laden debut at Untitled's Jungle Show to performances at The Belcourt Theatre and Burning Bajos, Butler has amused and confused audiences for decades with his brand of spoken word, music and visual art," he says in a typically self-deprecating release.

The Social Club will be present only on tape, alas, but Butler has stage presence to spare. And he's on a bill that includes musical guests Ole Mossy Face and Stephen Simmons, fellow spoken-word artists Nicole Branigan, Ben Burr and Jamie Givens, East Side Story proprietor Chuck Beard, and visual artists Barbara Clark and Shaun Shively.

The show begins at 6 p.m., and admission is $10. Full release below.
