So it turned out the best part about playing in Nashville was playing with the band Dirty Proper. Their bass player, Trey, happened to manage a cool bar in Murfreesboro called Liquid Smoke, and he offered us a show for the next night. So after a wonderful home-cooked meal with our hosts and friends Shawn and Leanna, we headed out to play the show. Liquid smoke boasts a huge selection of beers, both on tap and in the bottle (but mostly bottle), and also caters to cigar-smokers. We decided to play 2 sets, and when we started there were probably about 15 people present. It was clear after maybe 3 songs that we had everyone’s attention. We were playing all of our funky-stuff and throwing in classic covers and just having a good time. We ended up meeting some cool people and making connections for next time. Murfreesboro is home to Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and has a good music scene along with a ton of students–definitely a nice place for us to play around NashVegas. One other thing to note: Liquid Smoke had the coolest bathroom I’ve ever seen in a bar, possible ever. It was more like a home bath. No stalls, no urinals. It was well decorated with art, had a clear-glass sink, and a nice couch. So if you ever in the area, maybe just stop in to use the bathroom ’cause it’s worth it!
