Todd Snider’s “East Nashville Tonight” screening @ The East Room – 4/13/2014

East Nashville Tonight screening at The East Room 4/13 after SPiFFY SQUiRREL

On February 12, 2013 the Barnes Brothers began shooting a documentary in East Nashville, starring Todd Snider and Elizabeth Cook. Its purpose was to promote touring songwriters from the neighborhood.

They failed.
Instead, drugs took over.
Instead they made…”East Nashville Tonight” – A hypothetical documentary stoner musical.

The Nashville Scene wrote, “if you’ve ever wanted to see Middle Tennessee’s world-renowned paradise of gentrified bohemia get a Cheech and Chong-worthy This Is Spinal Tap treatment, here goes.”

Here’s the film trailer:
