Trampled By Turtles / Nikki Lane Show

Nikki_LaneThe first time I saw Nikki Lane was this past October at Austin City Limits Music Festival and was extremely impressed; and this past Tuesday’s show was no different. She’s charming and endearing mixed with some rough edges, and definitely dresses the part too. Her set list was a mixture of all her hits from “Gone, Gone, Gone”, “Walk of Shame” and “Right Time”.

Nikki_Lane_2Megan and I tend to creep on musicians to either get pictures with them or steal their set lists, yes we are those girls. When we carefully cornered Lane to get a picture she was extremely sweet and friendly. We even bonded over the upstate, as Lane is from Greenville and I went to college at Clemson. Growing up in South Carolina has its pros and cons, and it was refreshing to have another individual understand that point of view.

TBT2 I have never seen Trampled by Turtles live, but they are rumored to have one of the best bluegrass jam sessions on the musical circuit. Now that I have seen them live, I can attest to this rumor.  Check out the quick video I took when they opened up the show. Definitely make a point to catch this band live, it will make you appreciate musicians that can play the hell out of an instrument.

Local Done Right

A_Fragile_TomorrowThis past Wednesday I visited Charleston’s Pour House for a night of local music from musicians Matt Megrue, Logan Venderlic and A Fragile Tomorrow. The Pour House is an amazing music venue that has it all:  huge patio, snappy and sassy bartenders and an eye for great musical talent.

Matt_MegrewMatt Megrue of Loners Society kicked off the evening with some laid-back guitar strumming that set my whirlwind day at ease. He captures your attention with great songwriting and smooth stage presence. Stay tuned for a more in depth post on LS’s album, King City Sessions.

Logan_Venderlic2Logan took the stage next and this was my second time seeing him, you can read about it here. Mr. Venderlic debuted a new single, “Shakin’ and Swayin'”, a great edition to his set list that will get you moving. Even the delightful drunk man next to me compared the tune to something that belonged in the movie Pulp Fiction.
We will take that as a compliment… 😉

A_Fragile_TomorrowA Fragile Tomorrow is a foursome that blends together the best sounds of pop and rock. Comprised of Sean, Dominic, Brendan and Shaun, this band of brothers has toured all over the United States as well as Europe. They represent our little seaside town well and cannot wait to hear more from them.

Logan_VenderlicThanks for the picture, Logan. Matt and AFT, you’re next!

As we approach the weekend, Brother Hulsey and I head north for West, By God, Virginia. This is my first time to WV, and with any good adventure I’m looking for some tunes to musically recount my weekend adventures. I immediately thought of West Virginia native and Charleston resident, Logan Venderlic. I caught his show last Saturday at Royal American, and since then I’ve had his song, “Travelin’ Tooth Operators” stuck in my head. The vocal rasp mixed with his quick tongue makes for audible-pleasing tunes perfect for my mountain getaway. Give his jams a listen below and enjoy.

Happy Weekend, Disco Teepee-ers!
