All of the other details remain the same: 12th & Porter, $5, 18+, awesome show. Kristen Cothron is on first, followed by The Paranormals, and rounded out by Ernie Halter. We will see you all at 7 pm!

Josh Foster, The Gills, The Future, Eastern Block Play Free Show At the Mercy Lounge Tonight

Tonight at the Mercy Lounge, the lineup is stacked high with Tennessee talent, featuring set lists from Eastern Block, The Gills, The Future, and Josh Foster. For some inexplicable reason, this show is free of charge, which makes it very easy to come out and show your support for some of your local talent. The show starts at 9 pm "sharp," which could also mean "9:30... ish" on a venue's watch, but show up early just in case.

Parachute Musical's Josh Foster Goin' Solo

In his premiere post-Parachute Musical performance, Josh Foster took the stage as a solo artist last Tuesday at 3rd & Lindsley. After spending the past seven years as the lead songwriter and singer of Parachute Musical, the band's recent breakup has left the artist with full creative control of his new venture. "I've always liked the fellowship of a band so that's just how it's always been. Nowadays, even though I'm playing with a band, I'm striking out on my own in the sense that the majority of the decision- making process lies on my shoulders. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it's definitely different."

Fans of Parachute Musical will recognize the stripped and undiluted lyrical style of the singer's new music, but songs like "Tired Of This Motel" are a departure from anything they've heard before. Foster has taken an obvious step away from writing songs based on his past and seems to be moving toward singing about his present, focusing less on regret and hindsight and more on things like love and burning motels to the ground.

Josh Foster's career has closely documented his personal life, from addiction to disappointment to the birth of a child, but the musician seems to be taking his most recent transition in stride. "A lot of people would probably call me a hobbyist since I don't make a solid living playing music, but I consider myself [a musician]. I've paid a lot of dues, toured everywhere, slept on floors forever, lived out of a shitty van that I miss terribly these days. I don't know when you cross the threshold of hobbyist to musician, but it feels like I'm there... just still paying dues, I guess. I'm having fun, though." – Brianne Turner
