I swung by Nashville's best dive bar Friday night to meet my son and check out a local band called Linear Downfall. The venue was hopping and we ended up having a great time hanging out with Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and Kesha. Seriously! Wayne was in town to do some recording with Kesha at Blackbird Studios and she decided to bring the Lip man down to our favorite hang to hear some local underground rock.
It was great to see Wayne enthusiastically supporting Nashville indie rock. He's a great guy too. Happy to chat and take pictures with admiring fans. Most of all he was just really cool to the local musicians.
Speaking of local musicians, the freaky sounds of Linear Downfall was the perfect music for a show visited by a Flaming Lip.
The power trio of Charlee Cook on bass, synth and vocals, Chance Cook on guitar, effects programming and synth and Will Hicks on drums ripped it up on some grooving experimental rock and gave everyone a show worth sticking around for.
To your average Joe The Springwater Supper Club in Nashville might look like a ridiculously outdated and rundown shack on the edge of Centennial Park, but for those in the know it is a hub for creative, experimental indie rock and more and you just never know who might be inside. This is why we love Nashville.
