On Friday, October 28, songwriter/guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan will release a new album titled Silver Tears. Seems normal enough, right? Just releasing an album?
Well, Tasjan — who cites the New York Dolls and Semi Precious Weapons on his résumé of eclectic musical accomplishments over the years — is doing something on release day that’s worth a note or two.
Specifically, he’s going to perform at 12 different Nashville locations over the course of the day. Twelve. Different. Venues. In. One. Day. He has been pushing this event on his PledgeMusic page for quite some time, leading up to the big day.
Tasjan has a song on the new LP called “12 Bar Blues,” making this a pretty perfect way to celebrate release day. He’ll also be live-streaming the day’s events on Periscope and Facebook Live, because why not?
Here’s a video detailing the big plans:

We’re renting a party bus, and giving a handful of lucky fans a first-person experience, riding around town with Aaron as he plays the quintessential dives (and the occasional tourist trap) of Nashville, TN.
Crazy, right? But also … crazy appropriate! Here’s the schedule of events if you’re interested in paying attention — and stay glued to his Facebook page for the live video on Friday!
