What’s up, Murfreesboro! The Pulse has info on all sorts of musical happenings for your enjoyment once again. We have White Bay Freddie and his pirate sounds, lots of new recorded material from some of our fine local players, a two-day soiree put on by Mr. Renner himself, the opening of the Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra’s new season; it’s still cool as ever at Cumberland Caverns’ monthly bluegrass show. Muddy Roots did indeed get a little muddy and 3 Brothers Deli is ready to open the neighboring garden to the public.
Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and many more hit DeLuna Fest in Pensacola later this month, then in Bowling Green the following weekend Cage the Elephant curates its Starry Nights Festival. The first weekend in October, the gentlemen from Shorty’s Pizza Bus invite some of the best bands in town to Carl’s Barn for “the ultimate Murfreesboro house party,” and Nashville’s Soundland sets up two stages for a day in Riverfront Park.
Check out the penultimate (I’ve been wanting to drop that word) page of this edition for info on how you can win tickets to various wonderful activities.
I definitely recommend a stroll around Old Fort Park on Saturday, Sept. 15, to view the work of all of the great artists participating in the annual Greenway Art Fest. It’s free, it’s fun, it’s family friendly.
We welcome the thousands of new faces to the area coming to MTSU this semester. Ms. Mayo offers some tips on gettin’ y’alls kitchens all stocked up for the first time. My culinary legacy left at MTSU was introducing my fellow residents in the now-demolished Clement Hall to the peanut butter and honey sandwich and the tuna, cheese and barbecue sauce on toast.

The irony of placing my brief observations on local milk prices next to a column bringing attention to malnourishment and starving people is not lost on me. I am appreciative that a bad day in my food supply means milk goes up 30 cents, and is not filled with concern as to whether I will live or die. I love that writers Terri DeLong and Ryan Egly arrive at some of the same conclusions regarding food choices from vastly different approaches, from the very micro approach of growing our own food means healthier meals, to the very macro participating in the corporate industrial food machine affects others across the globe in a negative way.
