Lera Lynn of True Detective Is Coming to Nashville October 17th

The second season of True Detective caught a lot of flak, but personally, I enjoyed it in all of its gritty and cynical glory. I could go on and on, but then I’m sure that debate will never stop. But no matter what you thought of this season, there are two indisputable facts about it: 1) it was definitely a completely different animal than season one, and 2) it helped open up people’s ears to Lera Lynn.

I’ve already stated my opinion on the first point, but as for Ms. Lynn, I think she’s fantastic. From the songs I’ve heard, her dark and brooding lyrics are matched only by her smoldering presence and ghost-like vocal delivery. I was such a fan that when my buddy Nick said she was going to be playing in Chattanooga, it seemed like a no-brainer to make the road trip. On stage, she’s just as mesmerizing and haunting as she was on the show, but not as depressing. She could crack a joke or two in between songs and even a smile before lighting the place on fire.

I write about this because she has recently announced a new slew of upcoming tour dates and lucky us, a Nashville gig (that isn’t her performance for Americana Fest) is on her itinerary. On October 17th, she’ll grace the stage of 3rd and Lindsley. Tickets are available now via TicketWeb. If you need more convincing, check out a few of her tracks below, including a respectable cover of TV on the Radio’s “Wolf Like Me” (which she played at the show as well). Dig in.
