Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight
Tonight is one of those times where Nashville has an almost disgusting wealth of great live music options. All four of these shows would be on my concert calendar if they weren't all happening at the same time. I still haven't decided which one I'll be attending, but right now I'm leaning towards heading down to Elliston Place. If one of the shows in this lineup isn't enough to get you to brave the cold and head out on a Thursday night, consider yourself officially lame.
Young Professionals, Turncoats, and Thornton @ Exit/In, 8 pm, $5
Three of the area's best indie bands team up for one of the finest all local bills Nashville has seen in a while.
Paul Burch & The WPA Ball Club @ Family Wash, 8:30 pm, free
The sometime Lambchop member tends to put the emphasis on the second half of the alt-country tag. On his latest album East To West, he's backed up by Mark Knopfler and Ralph Stanley... not too shabby.
Paul Burch - "Montreal" (mp3)
Wings Over The Basement @ The Basement, 9 pm, $7
Members of Nashville's all-star cover bands Guilty Pleasures and The Long Players team up to take on Paul McCartney's post-Beatles catalog.
Abbey Road Live! @ Mercy Lounge, 9 pm, $10
If Macca's Fab Four output is more your style, Abbey Road Live! perform the songs that the Beatles never played live.
