I've been looking forward to Monday night since I first checked out Hallelujah The Hills several weeks ago. I'm usually not a fan of band names and song titles being one in the same, but this song is a thousand different kinds of awesome... like The Rentals doing a pub sing along.

The rest of their stuff is equally great. They're playing in Nashville twice tomorrow (St. Patrick's Day if you weren't paying attention). They'll be at Grimey's for a free instore performance at 6 pm, and then head to Springwater for a 9 pm show that also features Bad Friend and (self promotion alert) Paris Street.
Tuesday night is about making up for lost opportunities. Hotpipes released their new CD a couple of weeks ago, and I had planned on going to their record release show. Unfortunately my planned catnap turned into a prolonged slumber and I slept through it. Last week they did an instore at Grimey's, but I ended up having to work late. So I'm bound and determined to catch their show at The Groove, the new(ish) record store in East Nashville. The fact that it's only a couple of blocks from my apartment makes it a pretty safe bet that I wont miss them this time. Turncoats and The Teenage Prayers will also be playing, the show starts at 7 pm, and it's free.
Finally on Saturday, March 22, my favorite local band All We Seabees return to the stage after their winter hibernation. I was out of town for their record release house party in Murfreesboro last month, but it turns out I didn't miss much since the local constables shut it down. They'll be playing at The Basement along with Anna Kramer and Pale Blue Dot.
