Smooth Hound Smith to perform at Astra in MayMarch 6, 2018
From Local Sources
JASPER — Smooth Hound Smith, a self-described foot stomping Americana roots duo, will perform at the historic Astra Theatre at Saturday, May 12. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with a yet-to-be-determined opening act beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The East Nashville duo utilizes a combination of foot percussion, fuzzed out finger-picked guitar patterns and tight harmonies to deliver their unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm and blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll music.
They have performed at Bonnaroo (2015) and their music has been featured on CMT’s “Nashville,” MTV’s “The Real World” and the Esquire Network. Their second full-length album, “Sweet Tennessee Honey,” was released in 2016 and features appearances by Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, Sarah Jarosz, and Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers.
Seating for the Smooth Hound Smith performance will be general admission. Tickets are $17.95 and are on sale now at www.TheNextAct.org or www.astra-smooth-hound.eventbrite.com.
The performance is presented by Next Act Inc., and will be the second performance of their 2018 season. The first performance, the grand re-opening, is set for April 14 and will feature Will Kimbrough and his and band and Patrick Sweany. The grand re-opening concert sold out in seven days.
Funding support is still needed to close a financial gap and eliminate or reduce the amount of money the organization will need to borrow to complete the renovation. A 2018 membership campaign is underway and, while any denomination is appreciated, incentives begin at the $25 level (t-shirts).
