Nashville, TN (Inauguration Night!)

Jan. 20th @ The Basement

We left Atlanta and drove a couple hours towards Nashville untill we hit a Red Roof Inn. (for all you traveling bands; we find Red Roofs to be the best bang for your buck. no breakfast though. but as we're already learned...one need not necessarily "stay" at the hotel from which you eat its breakfast.)

As we drove towards the Music City we pulled over to a Days Inn somewhere in GA. Our new President Barrack Obama was being sworn in. We HAD to watch this momentous inauguration!!!!!. The lobby of the Days Inn was so intimate it felt like our living room. (Except for the unknown, middle-aged, crying woman sitting on the couch next to me) It was a pretty incredible sight and we all felt very proud. (not about the crying woman... about Obama's inauguration)

Anyway, We got to Nashville and headed straight for The Frothy Monkey. Our friend Beau is out of town so we're just hanging in a coffee shop ALL day till showtime. We also stopped by Grimey's Record SHop where i picked up Silver Sun Pickups and Mason Proper. We heard the new Andrew Bird record and came back later for a live performance by a local musician named Kyle Andrews. His band was super talented and they had a great show.

We were playing downstairs at The Basement so we just walked on down and starting drinking with Heypenny. We met these guys on our last Nashville visit and loved their cd. Some of you might remember we had them play with us in NYC last December. Check them out: www.myspace.com/Heypenny. Heypenny was kind enough to make tonight's show a FunAuguration Ball! It was also the bass player's Birthday so the whole night was a giant celebration. Jabe from Boston was there too, so we got to catch up a bit...

After the show K went back with Jabe, Pat and Zac went home with Ben, and I slept at DJ's house. He lives with his wife in an actual house. That kind of thing always makes us wonder why we CHOOSE to live in shoeboxes, but that's the price you pay for NYC. We stayed up eating birthday carrot cake and talking about "His Dark Materials." The next morning i slept on the couch while they got their puppy's balls chopped off...then we all met for some breakfast at Bongo Java. Ben showed us their new music video (it's amazing) and then we got back in the Blaze headed for Athens, GA.

Thanks Heypenny & friends for a great night in Nashville!
