Pre-order Parachute Musical's New Single

Wow, local indie pop kings Parachute Musical are releasing more music. These guys sure have a great turn over rate; seems like every time we turn around they have a new recording available. Well here they are again with new single entitled No Comfort, which is scheduled for a January 8th 2010 release date. But wait! we heard it through the grapevine that if you pre-order you'll receive the single before the normal release date. Consider it an early Christmas present...that comes after the holidays. You can pre-order the single here.

While we're talking about them, make sure you check out PM's new photo contest. Check out all the details here.

Keep up the good work guys!

Show Review: Junkyard Girls, December 2, 2009, @ Bong Java After Hours Theatre

Wednesday night Aaron Phipps played the debut show of his solo project, Junkyard Girls, at Bongo Java’s After Hours Theatre.  His sound is bred on the keys and occasional autoharp, but for his live performances he is supported by a full band and backup vocals.  Junkyard Girls is dark Baroque pop, add electronics, drop the pop.  

Aaron is heavy on the drama (familiar from his days in We are the Wind); his hand gestures and extravagant burst of song accentuate solid piano riffs. Aaron rolled onto stage in ripped tights and red hot pants, a little disheveled androgynous mess, and obviously annoyed at Bongo’s 10:45 curfew. He performed the first three songs under the guise of a mustard and maroon masquerade mask the likes of which are appropriate for a Carnival.  

I was expecting a six-song emotionally charged singer-song-writer set, and while I got that, he kept it diversified.  Aaron’s third song, “Tell ‘em I sent ya,” which he played with an autoharp on his lap, felt more like a sexy samba than something from a writer’s night in the attic of a coffee shop.   Two favorites songs were “Phantosmia,” a macabre tune about love, risk and doom, and its antithesis, “Nice to Know You, Sir,” a light melodic doo-wop-pop song.  

Junkyard Girls is working on a record Aaron hopes to release in the coming year.  You can catch Junkyard Girls at his next Nashville show at the Springwater on January 14 with Spider Friends. - Victoria Read

New Free Weekly Dance Party Opens This Weekend (12/4/09)


So there are a number of free dance parties in Nashville these days, and they're all pretty great. We can't begin to count how many Mondays we've stumbled out of the 5 spot at 3 AM or all the cool themed nights at 12th and Porter on Saturdays. But we just have one question: why has nobody done the obvious and put one of them free parties on Friday? Friday is the real party day, and someone needs to provide some free dance outlets for us to start our weekend right. Well apparently someone else had the same idea, because we are pleased to announce yet another FREE weekly dance party! On Friday!

That's right, La Paz Mexican Restaurant (infamous celebrators of Cinco de Mayo)  is throwing free weekly dance parties called "Fiesta Loca: La Paz Late Nights" on Fridays now, so get ready to throw down at their new location on Elliston EVERY FRIDAY from now on. Just consider it an after-party for everything. Finally, something to do after all the shows are over at the Exit/In or The End. We like what we're hearing...

Here are the details:

2214 Elliston Place (where that ombi place used to be)
Drink specials from nine to whenever = $3 well, draft, wine, and margaritas, plus $2 PBR tall boys.
DJ Potamus is the house DJ, and this guy rocks. He opened for MSTRKRFT and several other big names throughout the years...Definitely one to watch.

Supposedly there will be a new guest DJ each month too, which will help keep things fresh. This week is DJ Burgers (AKA Steve Cross)! 

Seriously awesome, we could use another free dance party in Nashville. See you on Friday!
