JEFF The Brotherhood

Behold Nashville’s local rock royalty in a true clash of the titans! JEFF the Brotherhood, arguably Music City’s most beloved brotherly grunge duo, and Diarrhea Planet, another local six-pack of guitar-wielding punks, have been playing together since Glenn Danzig’s house was the primo place for house shows, fueling one of the country’s most thrilling, restless rock scenes since way before Jack White even built his Third Man Records compound down the street. Besides releasing five original LPs via Infinity Cat Recordings (which they founded with their dad, songwriter Robert Orall in 2002) and putting out countless works by other artists (Be Your Own Pet, Diarrhea Planet, PUJOL, Heavy Cream, Ed Schraeder’s Music Beat) on the same label, JEFF just released their new EP Dig the Classics in September via Warner Brothers, which features covers of the Pixies, Beck, Colleen Green, My Bloody Valentine, The Wipers and Teenage Fanclub. In a shit-storm of flying beer cans, mystic shredding and long hair, their live show will be a chance for outsiders to crowd surf on a gnarly greenwave and catch a rare glimpse of some underground Nashville magic.

Jack White Discusses Citizen Kane

As any good Jack White fan will tell you, the man is obsessed with the films of Orson Welles. Exhibit A: He named his Third Man Records for the movie Welles stars in. Exhibit B: The song “The Union Forever” takes direct quotes from Citizen Kane, and White sings that he is “C.F.K.,” a reference to Charles Foster Kane. But who or what is White’s “Rosebud”? Find out today when White himself discusses the 1941 classic after a screening at Cinema Village. The talk is part of the Modern School of Film’s new series of movies and talks with celebrated artists from the music world.

WANDA AND JACK

Jack White is developing quite the reputation for squiring around country’s greatest dames: first, Loretta Lynn (Van Lear Rose), and now Wanda Jackson, whose The Party Ain’t Over (out January 25) was produced by White on his Third Man Records imprint. We trust he understands his fortune in collaborating with these ladies; Jackson, one of rockabilly’s most exciting pioneers, has led a solid and fruitful career since her debut hit single, 1956’s “I Gotta Know.” Gospel and more straight-ahead country has ensued since her glamorous rockabilly start; The Party Ain’t Over is described, per Third Man’s site, as a “retro modern collection.” We sincerely can’t wait for the next chapter of her reckless love affair. Performing tonight with the Third Man House Band featuring Jack White.

WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE

Come one, come all to see Strange Girls Sing—a night of lovely music from three freakishly talented sirens! First, singer Carol Lipnick’s eerie four-octave voice conjures up Coney Island’s desolate boardwalks and dilapidated funhouses from her youth. With her band Spookarama, she weaves blues, folk, and prewar Berlin cabaret through macabre waltzes and heart-wrenching love songs. Little Anna (a/k/a Annie Anxiety Bandez), who jumped from reggae to hip-hop to jazz to become a self-proclaimed postmodern cabaret queen, performs with acclaimed pianist Paul Wallfisch. And, finally, with accordion, plastic bells, and claviola in tow, Rachelle Garniez (of the Citizens Band and on Jack White’s label Third Man Records) glides through tragicomic songs, sometimes yodeling. While none of these lovely ladies have extra limbs or a furry face, they’ll surely deliver a musical freak show.
