Nashville Flipside Presents / Press

“Sure, I’m a little bummed out that I’m not out in Manchester covered in dust, sweating my nibbly-bits off and sleeping on a pile of sticks. But at least I’ve got an evening of sweet tunes to look forward to from Nashville’s newest soul up-and-comers. (Also, showers. I am so thankful for indoor plumbing, and look forward this weekend to not wearing flip-flops every time I have to pee.) But yes, the tunes! It’s a triple-tribute show that touches on three of my favorite artists: Chaka Khan, Amy Winehouse and Aretha Franklin. That’s a lot of soul-bang for your soul-buck — hell, I’d be more than happy to sit through an evening of tribute to just one of those artists, so all three seems like a sweet deal. And it’s even sweeter if you consider that you won’t have to use a Porta-Potty. SEAN L. MALONEY”

“Local music promoters Nashville Flipside built their rep with a series of great urban showcases before expanding into a variety of other musical genres. With their new “Platinum Series” at The Rutledge, they’re going whole-hog into the Americana field with a lineup that’s as multifaceted as the definition of the A-word itself. Headlining tonight’s bill is Nashville singer, songwriter, producer and authentic country music royalty John Carter Cash. Joining him will be a number of artists Cash has worked with, including rebel rockers Angel Mary and The Tennessee Werewolves, Appalachian soulsters Blue Mother Tupelo, country rockers Raelyn Nelson Band, and Texas country chanteuse Kasey Lansdale. (Interesting side notes: Nelson is Willie’s granddaughter, while Lansdale is the daughter of Bubba Ho-Tep cult novelist Joe R. Lansdale.) Heaping servings of twang and power-chord klang are guaranteed.”

“Billed as "An Urban Alternative to the Norm," Nashville Flipside is part of a larger trend in the city that finds local urban artists, often with live bands in tow, making moves in this city's more mainstream rock clubs. This, by the way, is a very awesome trend- anything that can be done to stem the tide of soulless, sweater-wearing indie rock that's consuming the city's live scene is good by us. Featuring a four-way bill that's as diverse as it is engaging, Nashville Flipside has you covered if you're looking for more flavor than you'll find on your typical Friday. We can't honestly decide which artist we want to see most- April Rucker belts 'em like a good R&B singer should, Lo Carter's retro-soul is insanely seuctive, Murfreesborean Mike Hicks' gospel-soul is entrancing and Danny Salazar's Latin roots-pop is sublime. Frankly, this is a trend we really like. Nashville Scene- Critic's Pick, Sean L. Maloney”

“Good Lookin' Out A smart local producer knows how to use January’s traditional downturn in national touring to his or her own advantage. The big names are at home polishing their gilded cherub statues, and that leaves the door open for a wily promoter to get attention for an artist that might otherwise be ignored while the city’s streets are filled with tour buses. The folks behind Nashville Flipside seem to have taken this theorem to heart, throwing down their second urban-music showcase of the New Year in this, the second week of January. N.F. always has a keen eye for talent, and this week’s installment is no different. Joint Heirs, a Nashville-based urban-gospel duo, make top-flight songs that could easily be mistaken for secular Top 40 R&B if you were to substitute references to God in places where a typical singer might mention, uh, shoes or champagne. — Sean L. Maloney”

“Score another one for the Nashville Flipside crew: it's another week and they have yet another tight urban music showcase. This week’s highlight is the hyper-hyphenated actress-model-activist-singer Casme, a New Orleans native who is racking up credits all over the place. In addition to cranking out great, bouncy R&B, Casme appeared in a recent episode of Tyler Perry's House of Payne, sang back-ups for Keith Urban at the CMAs and has been making the rounds as a motivational speaker and mentor to teenage girls. We're gonna go out on a limb and just guess that she doesn't do much in the way of sleeping. Her excellent I Am Not Every Girl mixtape is available as a free download on her website (CasmeRocks.com). You should totally get clickin' on it right now. Casme is joined by former Allman Brothers ivory-tickler Johnny Neel and and local funk sensation Shawna P.”

“One of our favorite things about this recurring urban music showcase is that every time their emails pop up in our inbox, we're guaranteed to find a new, exciting artist that we probably would have missed otherwise. This week's e-mail hipped us to Mario Moore, an Antioch native who proves our theory that the oft-dismissed neighborhood is becoming the city's hottest talent incubator. Teaming up with Southern Entertainment Awards' Producer of the Year, Coop—also headquartered in Antioch—Moore has created tight, modern Southern rap that would be totally radio-ready if radio wasn't completely preoccupied with the shopping aspirations of 12-year-old girls. Lyrically, Moore rolls hard but has a level of insight and emotional depth that separates him from the two-dimensional gangsta pack. Moore is joined by two of our favorite R&B songstresses, Lo Carter and April Rucker.”
