So, y'all know I moved to Nashville, right? I'm even saying y'all now! It's very exciting. It's currently a crisp 19 degrees outside, but very sunny, and last week I saw Scarlett from Nashville grabbing lunch at a coffeeshop across town. Anyway! Getting acquainted with a new city's music scene is really overwhelming. It feels like I'm studying for a final test without ever having gone to class. SO MUCH UNFAMILIAR INPUT.
As I wade through 8,000 different blogs and Bandcamps and try to fill my calendar with local shows to check out, there's already one Nashville band that I can confidently say is a favorite: They're called Bully and they play bouncy pop songs that are bright enough to make the city's current frozen landscape feel summery. And they're really great live, too! They recently played with Swearin' (<3 <3 <3!) and while I couldn't stay for their whole set (my diabetic cat needed his medicine, which is the coolest reason to leave a rock show early, yeah?), I can't wait to see them again. For your sake I hope they're able to get up to the Northwest sometime soon, too. Until then, I'm cool with keeping them all to myself down here.
