I know that I probably should’ve gotten to this sooner, but it’s been one of those weeks, you know? Well, if you do know then you’re probably in dire need of this post, because I imagine you didn’t have time to get your plans together. Here are a few ideas for you poor, poor souls.
Jazz on the Move: To Ella with Love with Sandra Dudley at the Frist – 3pm
EVERYONE knows and loves at least one Ella Fitzgerald song. “At Last” is a perfect love song, and I think you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t think so.
Noted jazz vocalist and educator Sandra Dudley will discuss Ella’s life and career, and will perform some of her most popular works. Sandra will be joined by Lori Mechem, Roger Spencer, & Marcus Finnie for this informative and entertaining program.
Those attending Jazz on the Move will be able to visit the Frist’s exhibitions free of charge (!!!) and will also receive discounted parking.
Jazz and art, for free? Sounds like a winner to me.
VALENTINES DAY 2010: IN H.D. at Battle Ground Brewery – 6:30pm
Here’s the official blurb which I will simply cut and paste because I have absolutely no idea what most of this means:
High Definition Ent. presents to you “VALENTINES 2010: IN H.D.” You don’t want to miss this event. Headliners such as American Idol Finalist-Saaneah, Mega-Producer/Artist-Jonathan Winstead, Soulful Singer-Jerami Matlock, Jazz Guitarist/Artist -John Richards, & The Very Soulful- High Definition Band. This major love show will be at the all new “Battle Ground Brewery” in Historic Franklin, TN. Great Food, Fun, Dancing, & Most Importantly Love!
Personally, in the level of bad Valentine’s Day dates this would be right up there with a really really bad rom-com, but if it sound appealing to you then more power to you. I mean, this comes from a lady who spent last night writing an essay about Eleanor Roosevelt at her kitchen table. Sigh…
Bluegrass Jam at Station Inn – 9pm
Because nothing says “I love you” like some grade-A bluegrass. Seriously, marry me.
Also guys, if the roads are bad be careful. Car crashed are not romantic unless it involves a Pearl Jam song, and that was a really sad song that involved the lady dying. So yes, not romantic.
