Nashville Fall Recap

October 16th, 2013 by megan

It’s my first fall living in Nashville. While I’m home this month, I’m taking a little time to enjoy the town. It’s still warm here! I’m really enjoying it so much. Everyone here has many talents to offer. It’s challenging and intimidating and fun all at the same time. Trying to keep the 3 ring circus going as I said to a friend the other day: Creative Life, Personal Life, Financial Life… they all overlap but it is 3 things to think of handling… So I’m just checking in with this website and making some fall plans…

Tim Easton and I had an excellent time in Alaska. It never fails to be awe-inspiring out there. We played Salmonstock, rode around the Kenai Peninsula with Dylan Lee Johnston in his sweet van, played lots of songs, shucked oysters on the Homer Spit, nearly drowned at the Salty Dog, and then I nearly instigated a fist fight with a couple of dudes… not my usual, but AK isn’t the usual. I got to Talkeetna for the first time. We stayed in the rooms that were formerly a brothel above where we played. Everything felt pretty haunted. Tim and I texted from our rooms across the hall from each other … we couldn’t sleep. All was good when I woke up to a very loud sound from the street and the comic relief of an actual toilet falling off a truck and breaking into several pieces… We wound down on Flattop Mountain outside Anchorage and Dylan Lee Johnston and I spent our time off the grid moose stalking and making music late into the nights, building fires, eating smoked salmon and his mom’s delicious blueberry pie (which I took a spare handful of when no one was looking).

After Alaska, we promptly went into full swing of the release of Tim’s new record ‘NOT COOL’. I’m really proud to be on this great record which he has made. Also on it are JD Simo (guitar), Jon Radford (drums) Joe Ficke (Bass) and Sadler Vaden (guitar). We played Music City Roots and then took off on the road up to Lexington KY and Columbus OH and we were pretty sure our minds were still on Alaska time for those shows, which is a good thing!

A week off and I went to visit NYC after my long absence… and hooked up with Larry Cook to play at our old fav, 68 Jay Street. So much fun, and I love love love New York still… no hard feelings there! I even got to go to Coney Island and get some late summer burn! I had to get back though because we were Texas bound… There is some perspective gained going to the 2 biggest states a few weeks apart. We played a killer show at Antone’s in Austin, hung out with The O’s in Dallas and played the Cactus in Houston. Long drive brought us home in time for the Americana Festival. My first one, and I loved it. I felt relieved that I possibly do belong to some sort of music genre, albeit the one that makes the least amount of money these days. But oh well, it’s still functioning. I got to go to the awards show, and I made it to a few other events, even though I was busy working at Vanderbilt that week (one of my 3 rings, right?) Love my Vandy job by the way, and I’ve never written I love my job on my website before. Anyway at Americana I got to see Richard Thompson, The Wood Brothers, and Lucinda Williams in addition to playing a fun set with Tim and the band he assembled for the night at The Basement. It represented how fun music can be. Playing with Jon Radford and Aaron Lee Tasjan and Russell Pollard that night (and Tim of course) was a magical set that would be hard to top on any given day.

I have the month at home now to work and get to work on writing and practicing and finding my gym shoes. I’m looking for a drum set if anyone has one they’d like to get rid of.
Thanks for reading! I just posted some dates for November/December, and I hope to see you soon! xo m

    Target Characteristics: These are characteristics that make reference to the person who receives and operations a message.
    According to Alexandra Juhasz, professor of media studies at California’s Pitzer College and something with
    the course facilitators, approximately 300 students

    To my thoughts the idea of woman president is one thing speculative,
    going beyond the generally accepted rules possibly at the most effective at the mercy of the theoretical
    and philosophical comprehension.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own
    blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Inbox – Dollars is the site that pays you for doing online surveys and read emails.
    A gig, which is what Fiverr calls the services added by
    the thousands of people that add them every day, is what allows the buyer and seller to
    meet for the first time. Others believe that the web page is absolutely
    nothing more than a whole waste of time and effort.

    on a website or if I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it’s caused by the fire displayed in the article I looked at.

    And on this article Megan Palmer Official Website ? Blog

    write a commenta response ;) I do have a couple of questions
    for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or
    do some of the remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors?

    :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d like
    to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list all of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
