We won’t let sleeping blogs lie

Hi, friends. Long time indeed.
First, a brief explanation: The intent with starting this blog was to create a busy neighborhood resource, and, ideally, get …

East Nashville news: ‘Eat Street’ rolls into Mas Tacos, Todd Snider and Bob Dylan, more

Mas Tacos

Firstly, let us all raise a glass in celebration of the fact that the weekend I-24 road closures, this weekend, ain’t happenin’. Drive to and from East Nashville with wild abandon, non-East Nashvillians, as the highways are clear as this afternoon’s lovely sky! Rejoice!

While we’re basking in traffic-free freedom, a few tidbits of East Nashville fun follow. Stuff We Heard, once again:

  • ‘Eat Street’ rolls into Mas Tacos

    We thoroughly enjoy watching the world at large getting exposed to our neighborhood’s treasures via the TV box, and that happens frequently enough. It’ll be happening again soon: Street food-focused Cooking Channel show Eat Street returns to Nashville this weekend, and our own Mas Tacos is on the schedule for a visit.

Stay busy in East Nashville this weekend: an events roundup

5 Points Second Saturday

Simmering in this weekend I-24 closure fun poses something of a challenge, and an opportunity, for East Nashvillians. Yes, it takes a little juggling for folks who live outside our neighborhood to roll in during these closures, and that’s meant some struggles for our local businesses. Yes, that probably means it makes good sense for those of us who are already here to just stick close to home, (figuratively) flinging our weekend entertainment money at our neighbors.

Good news for this weekend: There’s a veritable glut of stuff happening on the Eastside. We’ve collected a few highlights here (including an early, weekend fest-related one tonight), and we hope you’ll continue to show your support to the East Nashville businesses that make our home interesting and delicious and charmingly weird.

fEASTival reschedules in response to I-24 closures

fEASTival 2011

Show of hands: Who’s loving this run of weekend I-24 closures? Nobody? Mmm, good times.

While infrastructure improvements are, of course, necessary things, the 13-weekend stretch of detouring into and out of East Nashville has already caused its share of resident and business headaches (local biz folks are reporting noteworthy dips in weekend cashflow). In response, the organizers of fEASTival — the Eastside “Celebration of Independent Culture” scheduled for May 19 in East Park — have decided to push back the event.

East Nashville news: Farmers Market season starts, fests, classes, art crawl, more

East Nashville Farmers Market

In the middle of a quick breather from another bout of running around the country, so thought we’d check in. Lots going on around here of late, so we’ll get right to the latest bit of Stuff We Heard:

  • East Nashville Farmers Market season begins

    Ah, spring, when young folks’ thoughts turn toward… farm-fresh vegetables. It’s that time again, friends: The East Nashville Farmers Market season will begin with an opening shindig on Wednesday, May 9, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.

    Along with the standard spread of fresh vegetables, meats and other edibles available from 40-plus vendors, the market will also be offering live music, a petting zoo and a cooking demonstration from Nashville Farmers’ Market chef Laura Wilson (who just took a repeat win at the Nashville Scene‘s Iron Fork competition, so, clearly a person who knows a thing or two about the foodstuffs).

East Nashville news: Nikki Lane + Spiritualized, Eastland Cafe + crawfish, more

Nikki Lane

Lots of food, lots of celebration, lots of celebration with food. And Music.

On to the latest Stuff We Heard:

  • Nikki Lane hits the road with Spiritualized

    East Nashville-based singer-songwriter and High Class Hillbilly vintage maven Nikki Lane just scored a big, big tour opening for the mighty Spiritualized from coast to coast in May.

    On that jaunt, she’ll be taking the stage at some of our fine country’s finest large clubs and theaters, including D.C.’s 9:30 and San Francisco’s Fillmore. Closest to us? Atlanta, at the Variety Playhouse on May 13.

    Ahead of that run, Lane does make a hometown showing at Exit/In on April 28, alongside The Apache Relay and Colorfeels. That show kicks off at 9 p.m., and she’s second. Tix: $10.
