Nashville Scene: Swap Meet Symphony Critic’s Pick

Al-D Swap Meet Symphony Nashville Scene Critics Pick

You know who had a helluva a 2013? Al-motherfuckin’-D, that’s who. The dude has been playing all sorts of shows — art, hip-hop, whatever kinda shows you’ve got — dropped a dope mixtape, and won a Best of Nashville. But 2014 has ushered in the same old plan for ol’ Al-to-the-D: Hustle, hustle, hustle. His first gig of the year features some of the city’s finest and funkiest bands and DJs, plus a whole slew of MCs, all throwing down in one giant orgy of a hip-hop night. Plus it’s all hosted by Music City’s Sultan of Suave, the Duke of Dashing, the one the only Grand Marshal of Gummy Soul, Mr. Wally Clark. Which is a damn solid way to start off your new year. The show is free, and it’s presented by Nashville Fringe Festival.
