Question of the Day: 10/18/06

It’s Nashville. Lots of folks are singer/songwriters. Our McDonald’s and Walgreens have stages in them. But what’s the worst place for live music in the city?

Base your answer on whatever criteria you deem justifiable.

    Wow, so many ways to measure this.

    From the performer’s perspective, the airport, for example, could be both a good and bad place to play. Lots of exposure to lots of different people, but a huge amount of people ignoring you, too.

    From the audience’s perspective, anywhere there’s a shortage of drink options, food options, or where it’s too smoky or — if you’re a smoker — where you’re not allowed to smoke.

    On a semi-related note, I remember one of my former coworkers mentioning that he was dining somewhere — can’t remember where, maybe Saffire? — before any live music started, and was enjoying the dinnertime conversation with his companions. Then the live music started, and the diners could no longer hear each other. I do sympathize with the fact that an awful lot of restaurants have live music, but an awful lot of them don’t. If you’re going to be grumpy about the volume of the music while you eat, you can always eat at J. Alexander’s or P.F. Chang’s or anywhere they don’t have live music.
