I HAVE FULLY RETURNED MY FRIENDS.

I needed a little more time to take care of some things here before fully returning to the keyboard here. I will be catching up with a long list of important functions and subjects. I feel an urgent need to join in the fight to proliferate one of my favorite venues in Nashville…..hell in AMERICA!

When it comes to independent local music blogs, Nashville is one of my domains. Nobody covers Nashville with the personal flare that I do, and I truly lust for it’s history and preservation. Between the devastating tornado that destroyed a large portion of East Nashville, and this Coronavirus business, the whole system has been ruined.

It’s up to each and every one of us to continue to support live streams and purchase merchandise that will make Nashville stronger. I’ll be ordering mine tonight, and writing as many articles as I can on behalf of as many venues that I see struggling with the current situation.

You see, without the venues the bands cannot play, and I cannot cover shows. Without them I am nothing folks, and it’s up to US to come to action to help THEM continue to the circle of music and local support. Supporting The Basement and Grimey’s Record Shop and Robert’s Western World and many more should be at the top of our lists to go back to when this blows over.

THIS FROM THEIR WEBSITE:

We are so incredibly moved by the outpouring of support that we’ve received since tornados ripped through the area on March 3. The path of destruction is far reaching, impacting so many of our friends not only in Five Points and East Nashville, but throughout Middle Tennessee. The Basement East family are safe and being well cared for. But so many others are not so fortunate.

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has activated the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to support the affected communities and the nonprofits that are helping victims address their ongoing needs. Grants from the Fund will be made to nonprofits providing vital services both immediate and long term. Their work helps free nonprofits up to concentrate on delivering vital services by connecting generosity with need while our community sets out to rebuild lives.

Your generosity will help our community recover and for that we are grateful.

“We will rise! We already talked about it!” – Grimey, after the tornado tore through the building. We were all a bit astonished that one of the only things left standing was one of the iconic “I Believe In Nashville” murals on the side of the building. A symbol of strength as the community rebuilds in hopes to get back to business as soon as we can!

100% of all profits will be donated to United Way of Greater Nashville with funds directly going to the Nashville Service Industry who have been impacted by COVID-19.
