If you want to have a little taste of Nashville without hopping in an RV and driving about eleven and a half hours (give or take), you can tonight, October 21. The Sign of the Wagon is hosting a double dose of Nashville-based singer-songwriters this evening.
Aaron Lee Tasjan is an Ohio-born, largely self-taught musician with an origin story out of some postmodern coming-of-age film. He dropped out of Berklee his first semester and ended up joining pop-rock ensemble Semi-Precious Weapons, who he ditched… right before they ended up being asked to go on tour with Lady Gaga. And so, eventually, he ended up in Nashville, switching from pop rock to a blues-infused kind of country rock and roll.
Zach Schmidt is another adopted son of Nashville – originally, he hails from Pittsburgh. You wouldn’t know by his blend of roots Americana and country.
Tickets are a minimum donation of $10. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.
