The Last Bison Makes a Statement with "Inheritance" in Nashville, TN

When artists like Steve Delopoulos, Neulore, The Last Bison, Canon Blue, and Paper Route share the stage in Nashville, you can be sure to see a full crowd in attendance.  That was the scene last night at 3rd & Lindsley as industry professionals, executives, investors, and fans showed up to a showcase put on by Wedgewood Circle.  Proceeds from the show (only $10) went directly to the Wedgewood Circle Artist Fund, a group that exists to give “artists the capacity to be sustained and grow in their culture space.”  Wedgewood initially launched in 2007 to “invest in artists whose calling is to the common good… and to be in the world, but not of it.”  The investors and board members have supported all the bands mentioned above, which collectively formed one of the best showcases that I’ve ever seen in Nashville.  Despite their shortened set, Paper Route killed it as usual, playing songs from their new album, The Peace of Wild Things.  It was also my second time seeing Canon Blue in concert, but this time Daniel James was joined on stage by Zach Farro on drums and Vince Scheuerman on guitar/vocals, along with horn and string sections.  The result was phenomenal, and it was amazing to see the songs from his debut album, Rumspringa, come alive with the addition of quality musicians and full band performance.  There were countless great moments, but the true surprise of the evening was witnessing the performance from The Last Bison.

1) “As a musician, your biggest competition is porn. And if you’re paying for porn, you’re doing it wrong.”

2) “Have A Plan.”

Well, one out of two ain’t bad….

The first bit of wisdom was based on an Ars Technica Bit Torrent downloads graphic I had in my slides:
