Next Big Nashville, Nosebleeds and 30 Rock

Last week, from Wednesday to Saturday, Nashville hosted the "Next Big Nashville Summit," where all things music were happening constantly. My friend Sarah got me a free wristband for the entire summit; on Thursday, I saw local artists Keegan DeWitt and Madi Diaz @ The Basement (one of my favorite venues in Nashville).

Then, Friday, I saw Yeasayer. Their new album has received mix reviews, but whatever. I love it.

I regret that I didn't go to more concerts, to take full advantage of the free experience. Yet, due to the my work schedule, poor time-managment, lack of a car and hangovers, I didn't see more. Here's what I missed that I wish I could've attended: 
 1) Caleb Followill as the Keynote speaker @ Belmont
2) rjD2 @ The Cannery Ballroom
3) The Bridges @ 12th and Porter
4) Mikky Ekko @ 12th and Porter
5) Heypenny @ The Exit/In

Sprinkled into that whole music-filled weekend were beautiful nosebleeds (Welcome Autumn! woohoo!). Yeah, I was that feeble kid who had to go to the nurses office in elementary school while seasons were changing. During one of the concerts at NBN, I had to bolt to the bathroom.  Maybe Madi Diaz was rockin' so hard that my nose just couldn't handle it. I don't know about you, but I think this tissue is a nice garnish to my outfit:

Besides melodies and nosebleeds, I've been spending a lot of time with my little sister lately, perhaps bonded by the new season of 30 Rock ? We are both quite obsessed and often incorporate "Liz Lemonisms" into our everyday vocabulary (see the following two pictures). I don't know if I've professed my love for that show and Tina Fey on this blog yet, so here it goes: 30 Rock keeps me sane. That show along with Arrested Development are my coping mechanisms/ sleeping pills in life. I fall asleep every night to an episode of 30 Rock. Pitiful? Most likely. Parasocial interaction with the characters? Maybe. 
But at least I fall asleep laughing.

P.S. ALL concert photos on this post are from NBN summit photos because my camera SUCKS.

  1. I've only just started watching 30 rock cuz I bought the 1st season real cheap from a blockbuster closing sale. It's great so far. Arrested development = the best ever though. BEST. EVER.

    Also, I've always wanted to go to Nashville. This just made me want to go more.
