Weekend Round-Up: Elvis Style



Did you guys know there's a gathering of Elvis impersonators going on in Nashville at this very moment? Well, "tribute artists" is the terminology they prefer, I guess. Anyway, it's all part of the From Memphis to Nashville Festival, which is taking place in conjunction with the 35th anniversary of Presley's death. So if you see some Elvi downtown today, you're not hallucinating. Although, if you've never had psychotropic-induced hallucinations while watching an Elvis tribute, I recommend it.

But here on Earth, there's some original music going on as well. Tonight you've got The Black Angels with Night Beats and The Paperhead at Exit/In, Glossary and Jasmin at The High Watt, Quiet Entertainer's record release at The 5 Spot, Home Blitz with Fox Fun, Dirty Dreams and Mom and Dad at Noa Noa and a bit more. Tomorrow you're looking at The Ratz at The End, The Carter Administration and Ole Mossy Face at The 5 Spot, Percy Sledge down in Franklin, Denney and the Jets, Oh Dang Lo Mein and some others in Five Points as part of the Tomato Arts Fest and more. Have a look at the rest —¬†compiled by music listings editor Adam "The King" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a regal weekend.
