Nashvillesociabutterfly.com seeks to highlight the things that make Nashville (and eventually the world) so fascinating. A big part of the fascination with Nashville, in my opinion, are the people. I would definitely consider myself to be social butterfly when it comes to being on the scene and out and about, however, social advocacy for the people are also a pivotal piece to this platform. My advocacy is usually displayed in who I am as a woman, and in the choices I make. But as I grow this platform, I plan to do more. This piece is the introduction.
The goal of this blog is to connect the Nashville community with its up and coming pillars of the community; they are the faces of #NewNashville. Nashvillesocialbutterfly.com would be remiss without having the site blessed by Nashville Native – and I’m proclaiming him – Performing Arts Ambassador Rashad “Tha Poet.” I say performing arts because he’s multi talented in the arts of acting, spoken word, and rap. He’s being spitting poetry and flow on the mic since my high school years (think late 90s) and his latest project “Soulville”launched May 11. I attended the listening party for Soulville at the Art History Lounge on Jefferson Street and am bringing the experience to Nashvillesocialbutterfly.com
Tonight, the Isley Brothers performed at the Schermerhorn Symphony Hall. I really love this venue. If you have never been to the Nashville Symphony, you must check out an event at the Schermerhorn. It is a beautiful location, inside and out. It really makes you want to dress up, get a date, get out the house, and take some nice pictures. I was raised on old school music, and I wanted to see the Isley Brothers because there was no telling when the next time they would be in town.
