The boys from Chelsea vs. the boys from Shepherd's Bush

No, this blog entry title isn't about a soccer match in West London.  It's just the only way I could think of linking two events  together that we attended in Nashville over the last couple weekends. 

Saturday, June 30 - They "boys from Chelsea" are the comedians,  Jiffy Wild and Josh Wolf' from one of our favorite TV shows, Chelsea Lately.  They were at Zanies Comedy Club tonight.  They were both great and we even got to meet them after the show.   We had dinner beforehand at the always-delicious Whiskey Kitchen.   Thanks to our friends, Chris, and Tarryn (pictured above with Ashlee and the Chelsea boys), for coming along with us.

Saturday, July 7 - The "boys from Shepherd's Bush" are probably better known as the rock band, BUSH, who were at Marathon Music Works tonight.  After a long hiatus, the iconic band from the 90's is back with lead singer and front-man, Gavin Rossdale, looking and sounding as good as ever.  The one and half-hour set included all their old hits from their masterful debut album Sixteen Stone as well as new stuff from their most recent project The Sea of Memories  plus a damn fine cover of The Beatles' "Come Together."  During one of the songs off the new album called "The Afterlife" Gavin even came singing through the crowd and popped up right behind us before we even knew it.  The show was excellent from start to finish. Below is a brief clip of some of the first single "The Sound of Winter" off the new album. Our faith is restored somewhat in MMW as a venue now as the sound was pretty darn good.  We were much closer to the stage than the previous show we attended which might have helped as well.  We will definitely give this venue another try as they keep bringing in great acts.
