By Eileen Tilson/ @tktalt_tn Thursdays are very interesting to me. They can either be awesome, knowing that the weekend is right around the corner, or they can be horrible, seeing everyone’s tenseness from the week coming to a head. Let’s hope yours is the first, and regardless, you will need to destress tonight and I [...]

By Scott Roberts Difficult to categorize, but easy to like, singer-songwriter Dave Daniels celebrates his newest eight-song release with a show at L5P’s Five Spot this Saturday, August 27.
