Tonight. 7:00PM doors, tunes at 8:00. Nashville’s Church Mice, aka Clayton Fike, kicks things off first. We’ve been wanting to have Clayton play ever since we met the guy several months ago at another house show, and we’re glad to have him on board for house show #18. If you don’t already know Clayton from Church Mice, you may know him as one of the newest members of Foreign Fields, who we had play one of our biggest house shows back in May. (Public Service Announcement: Foreign Fields are playing as part of Communion Nashville’s August showcase this Thursday night at the Basement and the lineup is SICK! Big Surr, Jessie Baylin, Jill Andrews and Gold Motel also join. Things are gonna get rrreeeeaaallll.)
And for our headliner we have Minneapolis natives Caroline Smith and Jesse Schuster from Caroline Smith & The Good Night Sleeps. As a four-piece band they have toured all over the country, both headlining shows and opening for hugely successful acts like Cloud Cult and Trampled By Turtles. They’re making their first Nashville appearance as a duo as part of a two-week-long-plus living room tour. Cause A Scene is so proud to have them as part of our house concert series. Caroline’s music is full of pop hooks that stick in your mind and Midwestern folk sensibilities that make up songs that feel almost instantly recognizable. Most notable is her one-of-a-kind voice, that is equal parts Billie Holliday, Feist and Joanna Newsom. We think you’ll come away completely enamored. We sure are!
If you’re planning on coming to the show, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org or reserve tickets via Eventbrite here. If we’re lucky, perhaps Caroline and Jesse will break out this wonderful cover of Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me.”
Or if covers aren’t your thing, how about an original. Here’s “Rocking Chair”, beautifully filmed by North Shore Sessions:
