Last March Houston Mathews gathered 10 bands* and a crew of healthily gifted Nashvillains to create a documentary that pays respect to the bubbling talent that roils* beneath the city streets.

He called it Music City Underground and today it premiers at the Nashville Film Festival.

Next week, the Mercy Lounge is hosting an evening dedicated to the film, with a film screening at 7 and a show at 9:30 with Vitek, The Electric Hearts, and Evan P. Donohue

More details here

I might be selling prints at the show? Come and see!

On September 5, 1836, Sam Houston was elected as the first President of the Republic of Texas. In 1859 - 14 years after Texas’s annexation by the United States - Houston became the only foreign head of state to be elected governor of a US state.

As President of the Republic of Texas, Houston was a strong advocate for its annexation by the United States, but was forced to drop the matter during his first term due to political pressure. Eventually, during his second term as President, Texas was annexed by the United States and Houston began to rise in the ranks of US politics. He served as a Senator from Texas, becoming the last former head of state to serve in the American Congress, and was later elected Governor of Texas.

Lyrics:

Juicy J
Yeah, y’all know what it is!
Katy Perry
Juicy J
Uh huh, let’s rave!

Katy Perry
I knew you were
You were gonna come to me
And here you are
But you better choose carefully

'Cause I…
I’m capable of anything
Of anything
And everything

Make me your Aphrodite
Make me your one and only
But don’t make me your enemy
Your enemy
Your enemy

So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you’re fallin’ for
Baby do you dare to do this
‘Cause I’m comin’ at you like a dark horse

Are you ready for
Ready for
A perfect storm
Perfect storm
‘Cause once you’re mine
Once you’re mine
There’s no goin’ back

Mark my words
This love will make you levitate
Like a bird
Like a bird without a cage
We’re down to earth
If you choose to walk away
Don’t walk away

It’s in the palm of your hand now baby
It’s a yes or a no
No maybe
So just be sure
Before you give it up to me
Up to me
Give it up to me

So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you’re fallin’ for
Baby do you dare to do this
‘Cause I’m comin’ at you like a dark horse

Are you ready for
Ready for
A perfect storm
Perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine
Once you’re mine
There’s no goin’ back

Juicy J
She’s a beast
I call her Karma
She eat your heart out
Like Jeffrey Dahmer

Be careful
Try not to lead her on
Shawty’s heart was on steroids
‘Cause her love was so strong

You may fall in love
When you meet her
If you get the chance, you better keep her
She swears by it but if you break her heart

She turn cold as a freezer
That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
She can be my Sleeping Beauty
I’m gon’ put her in a coma

Woo!
Damn I think I love her
Shawty so bad
I’m sprung and I don’t care
She got me like a roller coaster
Turn the bedroom into a fair

Her love is like a drug
I was tryna hit it and quit it
But lil’ mama so dope
I messed around and got addicted

Katy Perry
So you wanna play with magic?
Boy you should know what you’re fallin’ for
(You should know)
Baby do you dare to do this
‘Cause I’m comin’ at you like a dark horse
(Like a dark horse)

Are you ready for
Ready for (Ready for)
A perfect storm
Perfect storm (A perfect storm)
‘Cause once you’re mine
Once you’re mine (ohhhh)
There’s no goin’ back

Beyoncé's Father Mathew Knowles Claims 'Lift Fight' Between His Daughter Solange And Jay Z Was A 'Jedi Mind Trick' PR Stunt

Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles has suggested the notorious fight that broke out between his other daughter Solange and Jay Z in a hotel lift was a publicity stunt cooked up to boost album and ticket sales.

Mathew - who used to manage Beyoncé and her former group Destiny’s Child - made the sensational claim during an interview with the American radio station 104.1 KRBE Radio in Houston.

Referring to the incident as a ‘Jedi mind trick’, Mathew said the scuffle was planned in order to generate interest in Jay Z and Beyoncé’s ‘On The Run’ tour as well as Solange’s solo career.

“[They needed something to] ignite that tour,” he said. “It’s called a ‘Jedi mind trick.’ The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of the time. So things you see, sometimes, are… All I know is: everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up, Solange’s album sales went up 200%.”



Solange was caught on CCTV attacking her brother-in-law as Beyoncé stood by at a MET Gala after party at Manhattan’s Standard Hotel in May.

The trio later released a statement, saying: “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred.

“They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behaviour throughout that evening are simply false.

“At the end of the day, families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”.”

Mathew’s latest comments are unlikely to help his already frosty relationship with Beyoncé and Solange, neither of whom attended his 2013 wedding.
