Old Farts and Jackasses
Jun 20, 2013
Live music by Jason Staczek and Garth Reeves!
"Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa's music. And I don't care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, 'My God, that ain't country!' Well that's because you don't buy records anymore, jackass." —Blake Shelton, 2012 Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year
Calling all feisty fogies and savvy whippersnappers: we're presenting a big screen rebuke to all things "new country." Sip a cool one in the lobby, then sit back and get schooled on the genius of the giants of country music past: Waylon and Willie, Johnny and June, Buck and Don, Conway and Loretta, Tammy and George and Mr. Merle Haggard (who tweeted in March: "On behalf of all the old farts, we forgive you, Blake! But you should do a tribute album! Don't ya think?").
We'll be featuring film clips of a vanishing breed of country legends, singing and playing American music the way it was meant to be done. Local country musicians Garth Reeves (acoustic guitar/vocals), Jason Staczek (piano/accordion/vocal) and Rebecca Young (electric bass) will also perform, live and in your face, at this screening.
