Art Crawl and Concert at Downtown Presbyterian Church

Art Crawl and Concert at Downtown Presbyterian Church
Orange Crush
by Joe Nolan
Nashville Scene

Music is playing a bigger role at the First Saturday Art Crawl, and Welcome to 1979 seems poised to continue its retro recording jihad at Downtown Presbyterian Church for many First Saturdays to come. A Nashville studio committed to the warm, analog recording techniques of rock’s heyday, Welcome to 1979 will chronicle these performances—live, sans amplification—straight to shiny black tape. The audience can enjoy the magical acoustics of the chapel or slip on a pair of the available headphones to check out the mix as it’s going down. This week will feature the music of John Francis, Oblio lead-singer Terry Price, and Orange Willard, a Dayton, Ohio-based hard-rock outfit that will no doubt bring the fury—even if they can’t bring their amps.
