Friday night, February 4, 2011, Nashville’s Broadway is hoppin’! Tourists know this street as “the” place to buy tacky Nashville souvenirs and see plenty of cowboy hat wearin’ songsters. But Nashville locals know a couple of secrets about this strip o’ country highway. 1) Hillbilly hipsters and 1950s wearin’ 20 to 30 somethings congregate at Layla’s Bluegrass Inn on Friday nights (when we’re lucky) for some righteous punk, rockabilly a la Hillbilly Casino. 2) Roberts Western World hosts one of Nashville’s best guitar players and performers on Friday nights (ditto the lucky comment above).
When the country stars align, Nashvillians can catch both fabulous and stylish bands in the same night! Lucky for Nashville and ME, tonight is one of those nights. If YOU are lucky, I may snap some photos and post them for you. But, I guarantee you, nothing is better than seeing both these bands LIVE. For the performance, the energy, the brilliance, AND, Yes, the STYLE.
Chris Casello and Brazilbilly at 10:00, Robert’s Western World, 416 Broadway
Hillbilly Casino at 11:00, Layla’s Bluegrass Inn, 418 Broadway
This is why I LOVE Nashville!
Viva Nash Vegas!
