a letter from the government an email from Big Fella the other day. I opened and read, it said there's an ASCAP showcase this Wednesday at 12th & Porter, featuring some of Nashville's up-and-coming hip-hop and electronic artists. You could say that Music Row is finally opening its doors to welcome in some of that real shit — and if you said that, then your name might be Big Fella, because that's what it says in the nifty promo video embedded above. Are we going to see a bunch of Row execs gettin' buck to some Nashville street jams? Only one way to find out, and I don't know that there's a better host in town than Big Fella, so this one's worth your time all the way around.
The lineup: Sam & Tre, Call It Dope, The Flamingo's, Wally Clark, Ducko McFli, Ware, Forte Bowie, Island Hustle Society and DJ Ghostdogg. The show: 18+, starts at 9 p.m., and will cost you $5.
