Weekend Round-Up: Fall Fail Style


1 comment

What the hell?! I know complainin' about the Tennessee weather certainly isn't original, but this is clearly getting ridiculous. It's the first week of fall and high temps are still approaching 100. I've lived in the greater Nashville area every summer of my life, and I don't recall anything like this. There should be a cover story on this. Someone call Al Gore.

Anyway, you know what's great? Air conditioning. And you know what places have air conditioning? Music venues. Though a lot of bands are taking the weekend off in preparation for next week's NBN festivities, there's still a pleasant selection. Tonight, you're looking at The Long Players doing CSNY, Korean Is Asian with Cassino, some bangin' DJs, Luke and the Late Nights and the admiral of the Yacht Rock Navy — Michael McDonald, duh. Saturday offers Jenny [Lewis] & Johnny [Rice] — whose debut is more impressive than I expected — not to mention Bassnectar, Grimey's annual Big-Ass Sale and tributes to The Ramones, Guided by Voices and Van Halen. Come Sunday, don't forget about Janelle Monae w/Of Montreal. Music listings man Adam Gold has gathered up the hotness, which you may peep after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and try to keep your balls on. As opposed to, you know, sweating them off.
