If you like the Murfreesboro improv collective HORSEHAIR EVERYWHERE and the experimental drums/sequencers/sound effects of HOBBLEDEIONS (aka Nashville’s hardest working drummer SCOTT MARTIN), then you don’t want to miss tomorrow’s show at Brick Factory. The lineup features HOBBLEDEIONS and three of the members of Horsehair Everywhere doing their own sets, including TJ RICHARDS’ New York City band TRABAJO (also featuring YUCHEN LIN), FRANK BAUGH’s SPARLKING WIDE PRESSURE and STEPHEN MOLYNEUX. Frank, Stephen, and TJ all appeared on this episode of Theatre Intangible. Scott Martin appeared on this one.

Richland Ballroom is quickly becoming one of the best house venues in Nashville. If Glen Danzig’s House was the bastion of punk and garage rock and Noa Noa is the destination for weird, Richland Ballroom is well on the path to becoming the home of low-fi ambient minimalism. Consider the following lineup for Sunday, June 3rd.

We have San Francisco’s ALOONALUNA, Gainesville’s ROAMER X, and locals SPARKLING WIDE PRESSURE and STEPHEN MOLYNEUX. Lynn Nguyen Fister is the main force behind Aloonaluna. Her songs are positively spectral, awash in synthesizers, field recordings, and lots of reverb. For a person so prolific (22 albums in 4 years), Frank Baugh’s Sparking Wide Pressure remarkably never repeats itself, and the luscious sound quality makes me hard pressed to ever call it lo-fi. Frank and Stephen are both a part of the Murfreesboro noise collective HORSEHAIR EVERYWHERE. Check them out on Theatre Intangible episode 73: Cuatro Ninos.

More info on the Facebook event page. See you at the show!

Stephen Molyneux from HORSEHAIR EVERYWHERE tipped me off to this show happening Monday, April 16th at the Sylvan Park house venue RICHLAND BALLROOM.

Here we have a couple of minimalistic, dreamy rock groups (REIGHNBEAU from Albuquerque, WAVERLY from Atlanta); an experimental ambient drone band (ASTER from Memphis), and one of my favorite Nashville acts (PINEAPPLE EXPLODE). Check out Reighnbeau in the video below.
