Saturday: The Davenport Project w/ Andre & The Giants

Saturday, Apr 30th, 2016

The Davenport Project pride themselves in not being allowed to get tied down to one particular era, type or genre of music. They are at home on stage playing anything from 50′s & 60′s rock, 70′s southern rock classics, 80′s hair metal ballads, 90′s acoustic power pop or contemporary country and even the occasional rap song. They strive to play songs that the crowd not only knows, but wants to hear, sing along with, or dance to.


Wednesday: Stone Cupid w/ Julie Christensen

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Julie Christensen’s new band Stone Cupid, a kindred spirit to her post-punk powerhouse Divine Horsemen, was invited to be one of the final acts at East Nashville landmark The Family Wash, before its relocation, in February. The honor was eagerly accepted, since it was at the Wash that the band first played together less than a year before, and felt something truly special.

“This lineup fell together almost fatefully, and the songs seemed to play themselves,” says Christensen. “It was so natural, so simpatico, like some concurrent extra-spiritual thing.” Stone Cupid headed to the studio with producer Jeff Turmes in mid-March along with engineer Joe Costa (RCA Studio A/Ben Folds) to capture that vibe in an album that was mixed and mastered in late spring of 2015 and was released January 22, 2016.

Christensen, who’s authored five independent albums and sung with everyone from Leonard Cohen to Lou Reed, has surrounded herself with a team of team players. Guitarists Sergio Webb and Chris Tench flank Christensen at the front, and the “absence of ego” she lauds is on full display. As Tench creates the ideal sonic landscape, Webb populates it with one stunning surprise after another. Propelling the enterprise are drummer Steve Latanation and bassist Bones Hillman, who combine taste and telepathy into something so unified they seem a single entity.

The crew’s résumés feature stage or studio credits for a wide swath of top-shelf acts, including Midnight Oil, Sheryl Crow, Agent Orange, Americana stalwarts Matthew Ryan, Amelia White and David Olney, and country mavericks Gail Davies and Pinto Bennett. – See more at: http://www.stonecupid.com/about/#sthash.YnVIuVIV.dpuf
