Junkies for Butch Walker

Wednesday, April 25, 2012:  Trying to catch two different concerts on the same weeknight in Nashville doesn't sound like a good idea in theory...unless it works.  And it did for us tonight as we were able to swing over an hour of performance at two different Nashville venues by two drastically different artists.   What can we say, we like to embrace the moniker "Music City" as much as we can.

Margot Timmins and little brother, Michael , one half of the subtly brilliant
and long-admired Canadian indie rock band, Cowboy Junkies,
slow it down a notch in the first set of their show at The Belcourt Theatre.

VIDEO below:  In a drastically different style, Butch Walker (left) and
and Black Widow band-mate and bassist, Jake Sinclair, take it deep into the
night at 12th & Porter.   This last-minute-scheduled performance was
following the premiere of the documentary focusing on
Butch the previous night at the Nashville Film Festival
(see previous blog for more on that).
