Rock City Birdhouse

The Lonely H

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Funny story: Our mother’s Rock City birdhouse — an actual birdhouse branded with the famous rooftop advertisement — was never home to any birds. It was, however, a favorite hangout of the neighborhood bats — and that’s far more rock ’n’ roll. But even more rock ’n’ roll than bats in a birdhouse is Rock City Birdhouse, the semi-frequent collaboration between Superdrag’s Tom Pappas and The Shazam’s Mick Wilson and Scott Ballew. RCB’s 2012 album Breakage is an fuzzed-out, over-the-top blend of goofball glam, punk belligerence and heavy metal hooliganism. If we had to nail it down to one genre — which we hate to do, because we’re music writers and hyphenating adjectives is our bread and butter — we’d have to say that Rock City Birdhouse falls squarely in the pub-rock category. So toast one to the bats, and rock the hell out.
