What’s Good in Nashville? (Week in Review)

• Holy $hit i$ there a lot of Ke$ha talk going on the$e day$! Not only has the singer apparently written material for Britney Spears‘ forthcoming release, but her music was just featured on this week’s alcohol awareness episode of Glee, where the cast performed “Tik-Tok.” A slew of reviews are up from her Kansas City (The Pitch & Kansas City Star), St. Louis (Examiner) and Denver (Westword, Hey Reverb, Examiner & Metromix) shows. Perhaps the best commentary comes from Just Spotted, however: “Ke$ha is a Huge Dick.” Elsewhere, the singer has a new James Van Der Beek-starring video for “Blow” and it was announced that Ke$ha will release a new (Electric Six-biting) album I Am The Dance Commander + I Command You To Dance: The Remix Album next month. Entertainment Weekly has the first taste from it in Switch‘s rework of “Animal.” It’s terrible every bit enjoyable as one might expect it to be.

Jack White made news this week, announcing that he would not join another band. (Which apparently isn’t new news after all.) Also, the BBC reports that a signed guitar once owned by Jack White and valued at around $24,000 was stolen in London recently.

• Josh and Zac Farro have started a new band, Novel American. Expect Novel American to be every bit as solid as Paramore. Take that as you will.

• A new issue of Concrete Magazine is out, featuring Chancellor Warhol, DJ Wick-It, Young Rell, Rio, Dee Goodz and Sam & Tre on the cover.

• Interested in free “Rocketown Presents…” shows for a year? Enjoy scavenger hunts? Click here for more info.

• Nashville = Music City Industry.

• “The Nashville Open Lot space will be no more.”

• All week Nashville’s Dead have been running preview videos in anticipation of their upcoming Freakin’ Weekend, each band performing a song at Glenn Danzig’s House: D. Watusi, Natural Child, Heavy Cream, Slammers & Diarrhea Planet (my personal favorite) all getting in on the action.

• Show announcements/tour updates: Lyrics Born will play Exit/In April 13, Local H will play Exit/In April 28 & Keegan DeWitt will be performing a selection of the score he produced for Cold Weather at a screening of the film at the Belcourt on March 4.

Here are this past week’s best selling albums at The Groove & Grimey’s.
