Tim Carey from the space music duo 84001 just tipped me off to a FREE under-the-radar holiday noise fest happening this Saturday at Betty’s Grill. Tim and Chris Murray (Square People, Textbook Punk) are releasing a split cassette and performing. Also on the bill are the Xists, the brilliant project of wrestler Jocephus Brody and his brother. Other bands include Malocchio (Derek Schartung), Brady Sharp, Sparkling Wide Pressure (Frank Baugh), Harvest Team (Reid Cambell), Terror’ish, Spacemen Saturday Night, and Dug. Each band will perform for 15 minutes or less.

There are several great shows happening this weekend, including at least three featuring Theatre Intangible participants.

Joe Nolan says June’s First Saturday Downtown Art Crawl will be one of the biggest of the year, and I have no reason to doubt him. A highlight for music fans will be T.I. participant Joe “Jocephus Brody” Hudson’s new monthly music series at The Space Gallery. The first installment will be Textbook Punk (T.I. participant Chris Murray of Square People). This all goes down Saturday night from 6pm to 9pm at the Downtown Arcade.

On Sunday, you have a tough choice: Space music or free improv. There’s Gerber & Gerber w/ Torben Asp at Notable Blends at 5pm or The Greg Bryant Expansion feat. Paul Horton, James DaSilva, Giovanni Rodriguez and Josh Hunt at Nine48Jazz at 6pm. The Gerber brothers, Greg Bryant and Paul Horton have all appeared on T.I. in the past.

Notable Blends is the private coffee club of the Davis brothers (of Davis Cookware in Hillsboro Village). Todd and Tony Gerber blew minds at the Tim Kaiser Brick Factory show last year. Torben Asp is a space musician from Denmark who will be in town for this very special show. Dr. Michael O’Bannon from Atlanta will be doing the video projections. Plus, FREE coffee! Sunday, June 2nd, 5pm, Notable Blends, 434 Houston Street, Nashville, Tennessee 37203.

Nine48Jazz is one of Nashville’s most intimate jazz clubs. The Greg Bryant Expansion performance will be the LAST performance in their current space. Soon after, Nine48Jazz will be moving to a new location on Rosa Parks Blvd. Expect really amazing free improv music. More info on the Facebook event page. Sunday, June 2nd, 6pm, Nine48Jazz, 948 35th Av. North, Nashville, Tennessee 37209.

Greg has a great podcast called JazzWatch, featuring interviews with jazz greats. Check it out here.
