    Nov 20, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    "If I hear a recording from 1933 that fascinates me," Bonnie "Prince" Billy tells the Scene , "one of my biggest wishes is that I can witness someone in a record store purchasing that record in 1933." Speaking via phone from his home in Louisville, Ky., the prolific 43-year-old singer born Will Oldham describes his latest full-length, Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues - a reworking of songs from the singer's 2011 LP Wolfroy Goes to Town , cut with Music City session musicians at Nashville's Beech House Recording - as an exploration of the possibilities of a time before Wolfroy was recorded.

    Nov 20, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    This month's list is bookended by a former dealer of high-end autos, and in the $2 million or so between his sale and his buy , Headline Homes includes a new Predator moving to Green Hills, a Miami Marlin moving to the Governor's Club, international grocery entrepreneurs scooting into Oak Hill and oh-so-many doctors going to and fro. There are mystery sellers who are probably country music singers and mystery buyers who are probably just making sound investments.

    Nov 20, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    Editor's note: Nashville's public school system has come under intense scrutiny in recent years after nearing state takeover. As the district has wrestled with academic performance, it has also spent the past few years embroiled in schoolyard fights - between the city and state over charter school laws, among bickering board members and administrators over politics.

  7. Remembering Ann Soyars, the big-hearted, sharp-tongued queen of The Station InnRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 20, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    I don't remember the first time I met Ann Soyars, the acknowledged queen of the World Famous Station Inn, who died of cancer Nov. 14 at age 67. But it would have been around the time I moved to Nashville at the end of 2002. Even though she'd started there less than two years before - first just hanging out, then working the door - she was already an emblematic presence.

    Noodle salad $10.50 Pho With Sliced Beef $10.50 Rock Sugar Spare Ribs $6.50 Grilled Beef and Pork Sausage Skewers $11.50 Banh Mi Fried Egg $6 As I walk up to the newest Vietnamese place on Eighth Avenue, I can hear Don Cornelius signing off at the end of Soul Train , wishing me "Love ... Peace ... and PHOOOOOOOOOO." Of course it's pronounced "fuh," not "foe," but that's just Minh Nguyen and his sister Thuong Vo having fun with Americans consistently mispronouncing the name of one of Vietnam's best culinary exports, the beef noodle soup known as pho.

    Nov 13, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    If you thumb through the film section of this week's dead-tree edition of the Scene , you'll find contributor Noel Murray's review of Listen Up Philip , which opens tomorrow at The Belcourt. "No matter how lively the writing and filmmaking in Listen Up Philip are, the movie wouldn't work without Jason Schwartzman," writes Murray, "who gives a career-best performance in a role that's of a piece with his two other signature characters: Max Fischer in Rushmore and Jonathan Ames in the HBO series Bored to Death ."

  11. Watch Bully Lick Up Some Soft Serve in 'Brainfreeze' [Fresh Vid]Read the original story w/Photo

    Nov 13, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    Sweet and messy ain't a bad way to describe the Go-Gos-meets-Veruca Salt sonic stylings of Nationally buzzing local rockers Bully, whose recent accomplishments include a recent tour opening for Broken Social Scene dude Kevin Drew, nabbing the " Best Band " pick in the Scene 's 2014 Best of Nashville issue and inking a deal with Columbia subsidiary Startime International. Sweet and messy also describes soft serve ice cream, which, in Instagram-filtered glory, the band appropriately licks up a lot of in the brand-spankin'-new video for its bouncy hook-fest "Brainfreeze" - a song that's been part of the New Nashville rock soundtrack for a little while now.

    In last week's cover story , we devoted significant space to some ideas we'd like to see candidates consider in the upcoming mayoral election: getting rid of PSC Metals on the riverfront; funding the MNPS capital budget; treating citywide high-speed Internet like a utility; resetting the Metro school system; creating more affordable housing; blowing up the current MTA system. From online commenter Susan Norwood : "Metro teacher here! Yeah, my room is ridiculous.

  16. A Christmas SurpriseRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 13, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    Apart from the occasional field of wind turbines or the World's Largest Cross, which lords over the I-57/I-70 interchange at the gloriously named metropolis of Effingham, Ill., there's not much to interrupt the landscape that lines the highway during the dull drive to Peoria, Ill. Three years ago, when I started on that 450-mile journey to my mom and stepdad's house a couple days before Christmas, I was alone and not in good spirits.

    Nov 13, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    If I had to choose one image to represent the spirit of life in modern Music City, it just might be the placard at the corner of Eighth and Division, announcing valet parking for the hot chicken restaurant. It's not only the endearing incongruity of high-touch hospitality and lowbrow fare that captures the flavor of the New Nashville - it's the fact that people are flocking to the corner of Eighth and Division to dine.

    ACT 1 begins its fall theater season with an intriguing mounting of Canadian playwright 's Lilies , making its local premiere co-presented by Out and About Nashville .

  20. Amusing local premiere imagines a duel of two formidable wits: Mark Twain and George Bernard ShawRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 13, 2014 | Nashville Scene

    Twain & Shaw Do Lunch, a script by Chambers Stevens making its Nashville premiere, has an enticing literary backdrop. But its physical backdrop is no less interesting - especially to those of us getting our first look at one of the city's newest venues, WSMV-TV anchor/filmmaker Demetria Kalodimos' The Filming Station, a screening, performance and event space on the roundabout at 501 Eighth Ave. South.
