Since it's the time of year when most of us are focused on holiday plans, this latest crop of East Nashville News has something of a holiday bent. Perhaps, more than anything, because we hope to save you from Black Friday. Below, some local opportunities to wrap up your gift-hunting, and some live music that'll get you in the mood for roasting chestnuts/Jack Frost/whatnot. On to... Read More

Win tickets to Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass

We're gonna go out on a limb here and say that many of our neighbors/readers are fans/avid listeners of public radio. Public Radio, by and large, tends to draw in folks who are creative and intellectually and culturally curious and fond of keeping in touch with the goings-on of the world -- and that, we like to think, has a fair amount of overlap with the culture of East Nashville. So,... Read More

A Week of My Veggie Chef

Some months back, My Veggie Chef offered an invite to test-drive their vegan meal-delivery service. And while I'm not vegan, being a modern human adult with all the requisite life-scheduling madness, the idea of enjoying a week of home-made meals while only putting in the work required to heat up a Bertolli had some serious appeal. Not familiar with My Veggie Chef? Here's the gist: You... Read More

East Nashville Underground's Jared Corder talks Roxy Revival

Jared and Kristyn Corder know a thing or two about building a buzz around a cultural endeavor -- over a couple of years, the two took East Nashville Underground from a friends-in-a-basement musical shindig to a bustling and much-talked-about seasonal festival, with an explicit focus on and celebration of our neighborhood. (We talked about that in a recent issue.) So it makes sense that... Read More
