"The band became lushly, profoundly meditative when he read the Gettysburg Address."
Nut-uh!! They GOT DOWN!!! The Gettysburg Address was a freaky dance number:)
In my experience, Matt's primary Band of Humans instrument was the timpani. Vibes + timpani = BAD DONKEY!!! (can't use the "a" word here. Sheesh.)
Re: Suttree ~ "a perhaps unintentional couplet quoted from the book’s end." No! Nothing was unintentional with Phil. He proudly admitted to stealing every line in that song from the book.
Phil was also a very good math and science teacher.
Other than these errors and omissions, it's a fine article.
I really enjoyed this article. Where was the picking jam in Maynardville?
I'm so sorry they are closing.
Knox County has a drug court!
Drug CourtLocated in Criminal Courtroom, Division I First floor City-County Building400 Main Street Knoxville, TN
Knox County has a single-jurisdiction adult Drug Court to serve as an alternative approach to incarceration for nonviolent offenders dependent on alcohol and other drugs. The purpose of the Drug Court is to promote public safety and health by providing comprehensive care to substance abuse offenders through a partnership between the judiciary, the Metropolitan Drug Commission, the Knox County Sheriff's Department, the Knoxville Police Department and health care providers. The General Sessions Drug Court presents the participants with a prescribed range of drug treatment services, as well as other social service programs, in a three-tier, highly structured, case management approach in a non-adversarial atmosphere.
Heard each Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. in Criminal Courtroom, Division I.
The Office of the District Attorney General, the District Public Defender's Office, private defense counsel and other courts can refer participants to the Drug Court. All of the initial referrals are assessed by the Drug Court Team to determine if the case meets the program's clinical and judicial requirements.
I like this! Good list.
Thanks for the links to the videos. Steve Earle sure was purty when he was yound, but is David Lee Roth hairdo makes me giggle.
This sounds like so much fun! Hate to miss it. Wish he was here on the weekend. Groan, stoopid day job.
Very good reporting, Mike Gibson.
I agree, I don't understand the Kenny Chesney phenomenon. Buddy Miller should be receiving all the alcolades, but he never will, because he's too talented.
This is a wonderful story!
Excellent writing, Carole. Thank you for sharing this information about end-of-life counseling. I am very sorry for your losses.
Excellent writing. I hadn't planned on going to the show, but now I'm really excited to see it. Thanks!
I like TVB! The folks who own/work there are very customer oriented, really listen to what you want/need, and are happy to help you select the perfect bike:)
That's why hipsters should move to Park Place Condominiums, a mere 1.8 miles from downtown. It's a gated community, ample parking, a swimming pool, gardens, and dumpster and recycling recepticles. You get much more for money by moving slightly away from downtown. And, Park Place is a trifling $5 cab ride, should you need, ahem, some safe assistance getting home.
I appreciate your coverage of opera and other classical music events.
I hated to miss that Band of Humans show>:(
I don't think the Square Room did anything wrong and I don't believe they acted out of homophobia.
MTE, thanks for inviting me to be a part of this very interesting and fun experiment.
Please don't forget the early success of Robinella & the CC Stringband. These talented folks opened for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, they performed on late-night comedy talk shows. They (and now Robin Tipton) have/has a long-standing Sunday night engagement at Barley's. They were very popular and Knoxville's darlings for the longest time. While Robin's daddy's little girl song makes me cringe, the band has many terrific original songs, and I admire that this band took chances (going electric). Robin's voice is such an interesting mix of a sweet honeyed southern twang with jazz timing. It's hard to stay away from her vocal allure. This band was also family friendly and had many fans of all ages.
Thank you for this excellent article. I've seen Sanda around town and always wondered who she was. I can't wait to hear her sing.
Even David Bryne was in the audience!
The Square Room is an excellent venue. Affordable tickets & early shows.
French Market should move into the Cherries building.
Thanks for the link to Joe Powell's blog.
There's plenty of digging to be done with the demise of Cherries and the press seems uninterested and/or unwilling to do it.
I'm surprised how "positive" this MP article seems. Cherries was a mess; very unethical and unproffessional.
Eh, that's nothing. For years, Bayona in New Orleans has been serving a duck and cashew butter and red pepper jelly sandwich.
Thank you again for your informative coverage! I will definately be at this concert. UT Symphony is terrific. When I hear them, I cannot believe they are students.
That's a nice, tight and direct review. I don't know Chris, but I read his posts on Knox Blab. I wish him the absolute best!
You haven't experienced Free Bird until you've heard it played on trombone by the Band of Humans. You would have been better off at the Brewers' Jam.
Very interesting and informative article. I HATE that I didn't read it until 9:00 p.m. on Sunday night:( I love Beethoven.
Excellent writing, Jack. What fun!
Very interesting and well written article.
Thanks for this concert, Leslie. You've done a great job.
I feel the same way about downtown living.
Thanks for this, Jack.
I recently saw "The Red Balloon" and loved it. There are also excellent street scenes of Paris.
Excellent! I look forward to more of these historical films with Jack Neely.
I would be happy to pay a donation or admission to the Rossini Festival.
Three years ago, I knew nothing about opera but was interested in learning. The opera previews held at the downtown library got me hooked in a big way! I hope that kind of public outreach will return.
Brian is doing a great job. I'd like to see the opera "Billy Budd."
UT Students are also disappointing because they don't protest the war, yet they protest having to pay for football tickets.
I really like "Coffee & Chocolate" on Union Ave., as best new business.
I like Salon Visage-Market Square, because the services are terrific and reasonably priced.
I like the Sunsphere:)
This is terific news!
You did a great job with this article.
Your old website didn't suck. It was actually easier to navigate because the articles were laid out just like the news print version. You could find what you were looking for with one click.
We miss you Samarai. You were such a hoot and one hell of a drummer. Thanks for the stories and the music.
Nice article. Can't wait to attend one of their special events.
Excellent introduction! I always appreciate your work.
