    Thursday Oct 16 | Nashville Scene

    Thursday Oct 16 | Nashville Scene

    There just isn't anyone else quite like Sandra Bernhard. A hellraising diva equally at home walking Paris Fashion Week runways, scorching earth with tongue untied on Broadway, getting real on Howard Stern's radio show or destabilizing unjust sexual mores, Bernhard has being speaking truth to power and opening minds since the '70s, when she wrote and acted on Richard Pryor's short-lived TV variety show.

    Thursday Oct 16 | Nashville Scene

    Bertie D. "Pee Wee" Johnson, 84, passed away last week. I had heard of him, and I wish I had known him - he was proprietor for many years of Pee Wee's, a West Nashville after-hours honky-tonk so legendary that Jerry Lee Lewis wrote a song about it, and later he was a road manager for George Jones.

    Editor's note: Nashville's public school system has come under intense scrutiny in recent years after nearing state takeover. As the district has wrestled with academic performance, it has also spent the past few years embroiled in schoolyard fights - between the city and state over charter-school laws, among bickering board members and administrators over politics.

  15. Marty Stuart: The Cream InterviewRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Oct 15 | Nashville Scene

    It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that every Marty Stuart album of the past decade-and-a-half - really from 1999's The Pilgrim on - has been a concept album. After abandoning his pursuit of hip-swiveling hit country singles, he reinvented himself as a combination statesman, historian and artist - someone who releases projects of cultural heft and articulates their importance with savvy oratory.

    It's pretty goddamn remarkable: All four original members of long-reigning hair-metal kings MA tley CrA1 4e - the standard bearers for rock 'n' roll depravity and debauchery - are still alive, and still touring. Not for long, though.

    Wednesday Oct 15 | Nashville Scene

    With all the focus on Nashvillians on all those competitive cooking shows on television, it's surprising that we haven't previously had a local representative on Hell's Kitchen , Gordon Ramsey's brutal boot camp to ostensibly select a head chef for one of his many restaurants.

    Read the fine print on the flier at right and see if you notice a noteworthy, newsworthy bit of information. No, it's not that local '90s-harkening, 120 Minutes -worthy indie-pop-stars-on-rise Bully have a prime slot on a CMJ showcase at Pianos in New York City, though that's cool.
