Well, we know what we’re doing as soon as we get off work today. Frighteningly talented guitar virtuoso William Tyler is playing a free show at The Groove in East Nashville today at 5:30 p.m., along with locals Ancient Ocean and Lylas. Look, if you haven’t listened to Willie T’s debut yet, there’s something critically wrong with your soul. Meaning that you ain’t got one. Sorry to break it to you like this but it’s true. “But Dixie,” you might say, “William’s tremendous Behold the Spirit record is total wintertime tune-age! We can’t listen to it in Summer, it’d be all wrong!” If listening to songs like the one above in early August is wrong, we don’t want to be right.
As for the others, we aren’t familiar with Ancient Ocean but we’ve been big Lylas fans for a long time. Do You Believe in Blood is an excellent Halloween record and “No Seance for Sweetheart” is the best anti-love song about not wanting to raise your deceased sweetie from the grave we’ve ever heard. Also, could this be a preview for something that we’re cooking up a few months from now? We’ll never tell.
5:30. Be there.
