Lightning 100 on the Way to Work

I don’t normally listen to the radio while I’m driving to work. Most days I just bump along listening to a variety of CDs or burned mixes. You’re liable to hear anything from Creedence to Snoop Dogg if you were to get in my car. I have what I think is a genre spanning music collection. My taste in music usually gravitates towards Lightning 100 whenever I listen to the FM dial.

That’s where I found myself this morning on my drive out (I’m a backwards commuter). I didn’t really have the urge to switch out any of the discs in my changer, so I just popped on WRLT instead. I’m sure glad I did. I would’ve missed out on hearing a new Will Hoge song called “Pocket Full of Change”. This song is classic Will Hoge. Listening to it made me realize how much I’ve been missing out on his progression as a musician. Will, I promise I’m going to be a better fan. Local talent of this caliber is few and far between.

The other thing that caught my ear was an ad for the Rites of Spring concert at Vandy. The lineup of artists listed was most impressive. Ben Folds, My Morning Jacket, Blue Merle and Gov’t Mule would make for an impressive show just by their lonesome. It’s only when you throw in Bone Thugs N’ Harmony that this event really takes off. All kidding aside, this is shaping up to be a hell of weekend. If you like music, April 21-22 should be right up your alley. $40 for 3 2 solid days of rocking is a bargain (I can’t seem to count.). You can buy tickets online at Ticketmaster, or you can purchase tickets with no service fee at the Sarratt Box Office.

    Alas, I am old enough where Rites of Spring required no ticket.

    You should check out the whole album – he’s giving away tracks each week at his MySpace page.
