Webb Wilder
credit-3rd and Lindsley

Tuesday, November 7, 7:30 p
3rd and Lindsley, 818 3rd Avenue South, Nashville

Webb Wilder & The Beatnecks have been cranking out their own kind of Southern Rock and “ROLL” since 1985. The band’s energy and intensity is well exemplified by the heretofore unreleased, vintage tracks contained on POWERFUL STUFF!, its latest recording for Landslide Records. A potent mixture of roots rock, Americana, blues, and British influences, the album primarily features the “original” Beatnecks: Wilder on lead vocals and guitar, Donny “The Twangler” Roberts, guitar and vocals, Denny “Cletus” Blakely, bass and vocals, and Jimmy Lester, drums, who were one of the most popular touring bands from the mid-1980s into the 1990s. POWERFUL STUFF! presents timeless live and studio tracks, many of which were produced by R.S. “Bobby” Field, a founding member of The Beatnecks, split equally between original songs and distinctive cover renditions, all of which inexplicably escaped release back in the day.

Ryman Auditorium, 116th 5th Avenue North, Nashville

Elvis Costello & The Imposters will be at the Ryman Auditorium this week and just a few tickets remain to this show. The “Just Trust” tour will answer many pressing questions, such as, “Will they play my favorite song?” or “Are they going to frighten the horses with a lot of excellent songs that are rarely performed?” or “Can I expect the hits of yesteryear and those of tomorrow?” To which we say: Just Trust Elvis Costello and The Imposters.

5. SiriusXM Coffeehouse Tour with Joshua Radin and Lily Kershaw

Joshua Radin

Saturday, November 9, 7:30 p
TPAC, 505 Deaderick Street, Nashville

About Joshua: Love and the complications surrounding it have long proven to be Joshua Radin’s songwriting forte. Though he never intended to be a live performer, there was little choice when the first song he ever wrote, “Winter,” was featured on an episode of “Scrubs.” The resulting fervor around the song soon led to a record deal, and over the last decade, Radin has toured the world countless times, sold hundreds of thousands of records and topped the iTunes charts, earned raves from Rolling Stone to The Guardian, performed on “The Tonight Show,” “Conan,” and more, played Ellen DeGeneres’ wedding at her personal request, and had his songs featured in more than 150 different films, commercials, and TV shows.

About Lily Kershaw: Audiences have gotten to know the enigmatic artist little by little since the release of her 2013 full-length debut, Midnight In The Garden. Bowing at #5 on the Singer-Songwriter Chart in the U.S. and Canada, the breakout single “As It Seems” clutched #1 on iTunes Top Singer/Songwriter Songs Chart and impressively moved 30,000-plus digital downloads first week before eventually scoring over 7.2 million Spotify streams. Acclaim came from USA Today, Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, and Billboard as she landed syncs on Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy, Finding Carter, and more. She cut her teeth on tours alongside Radical Face, Mason Jennings, and Bobby Bazini, to name a few.
