Fanny's House of Music: Five Years of East Nashville Noise

  Most musicians will readily admit it: Instrument shopping can be a mixed bag. Sometimes you find your new best musical friend; sometimes you walk out with little more than a faceful of sass and an eye twitch born of wheedles and crash smashes.   That's why having Fanny's House of Music -- the sound-stocked Victorian-era house at the corner of Holly and 11th...

East Nashville in 2013: A Look Back

  We've had a run of good years in East Nashville -- growth, attention, good food, strong businesses, valued charities doing great work. But 2013 felt like a particularly eventful one, particularly if we're accentuating the positives. As we're digging into this fresh-faced 2014, we figured we'd give some thought to the stuff that stuck out about 2013. Here's... Read More

Mickey's Tavern Scratches an East Nashville Dive-bar Itch

  If you were pining for a fancy cocktail with house-made bitters and fresh-squeezed juices, East Nashville offers more than our share of options. But even the most hardened cocktail snob feels drawn to the vibe of a dive bar time to time: relaxed decor, relaxed patrons, comfort snacks, cheap domestics in a can… the hang equivalent of old jeans and a...

The Ornaments at The Family Wash, in pictures

  As local combo The Ornaments finished their week-long run of 16 shows this past weekend, keys whiz Jen Gunderman shared a lesson she'd learned this go around.    Earlier that day at a senior home, she and bassist James Haggerty and drummer Martin Lynds played for folks who were introduced to the record they play annual tribute to -- Vince Guaraldi's A...

Talking Letterpress With Sawtooth Printhouse

  Letterpress printing, to a certain extent, feels as Nashville as hot chicken, thanks in part to the historic Hatch Show Print, whose designs have set the mood for many a musical moment in Music City. (Who among us doesn't have a Hatch print commemorating a beloved Ryman night?)    Hatch played a big role in the growth of Inglewood's Sawtooth Printhouse... Read More

Behind the Scenes with Storage Treasures' Mike Hendershot

  The wild flight of the storage-space hunter has -- perhaps surprisingly to many -- become quite the small-screen success story, with "unscripted" series like Storage Wars, Storage Hunters and Auction Hunters drawing passionate viewers into the drama of digging through discarded treasures. Nashvillian Mike Hendershot was one of the folks "captivated" enough by the... Read More

A Tour Through the 35rd Annual Celebration of Home Tour

  Growing up in a town that was mass-developed in the '70s, I don't often take the uniqueness and diversity of architecture in our neighborhood for granted. There were four different houses in my childhood neighborhood. Hundreds of homes; four different houses. It doesn't take a cookie-cutter-homes upbringing to have a good time ogling Lockeland Springs houses during... Read More

Pony Show's Pippin Chapman talks art, craft and handmade culture

  The rise in maker culture is well-represented in East Nashville, from the popularity of born-in-East-Nashville maker market Porter Flea to the many neighborhood shops sharing hand-designed, hand-made items that sure beam a lot more personality, humanity and care than something extruded through a mega-machine. We appreciate that culture particularly around the holidays, when we're... Read More
