Up early, coffee with David and Bryony, breakfast at Niedlov’s Breadworks. Bryony has students coming to the studio, we load out, then David, Al and I go sightseeing. We catch the Choo Choo Shuttle downtown to the Tennessee Aquarium, walk across the John Ross Bridge over to Coolidge Park then back across the Walnut Street Bridge, a pedestrian only bridge, kiosks set up for a wine tasting festival, past the Hunter Museum of American Art, back to the shuttle bus. We arrive back at Southside Studio ‘round noon, Bryony finishes up with her students, we say goodbye, off the Nashville, another short hop on I24 W.
We arrive Nashville mid afternoon, go directly to Blackbird Tattoo Parlor and Gallery, there’s a Krispy Kreme across the street. We load in, off to find a coffee shop. We meet Chris Davis at the venue, head back to his house, a few blocks away, we meet Emily, Dinky and Roscoe, dinner at the Istanbul restaurant, off to the art crawl with Emily. We’re back at the venue around 8pm, Jan Boxall is already there, we set up for a 9pm show.
Tonite’s lineup –
Jane Boxall – solo marimba
We have recording here.
A good show, Jane’s an energizer bunny easily spanning the complete 16’ length of her marimba. She plays classical, modern, Mexican. A hard act to follow, we do our best! We hang out for a bit after the show, pack up, load out, back to Chris and Emily’s for the night, in bed by 1am.
