Butthole, the band

The band name is Butthole. Not saying they are Nashville’s butthole. A cool turn of phrase to get confused.

I met and played with Butthole on tour in September. Never heard any songs prior to the show but after watching their set, the name stuck with me throughout tour. They were whimsical, creative, and fun. I remember specifically a song where the entirety of the lyrics was variations of “I’m proud of you.” The keyboardist looked at every member in the crowd, made eye contact, and said “I’m proud of you” as the band played. And I know it sounds goofy, but it was charming and felt sincere. There were no silly long speeches about this or that, just fun times and an enjoyable garage rock set.

It was an average Nashville show outside of Butthole’s performance. The venue was a dive bar with a strict “No One Under 21 Permitted Rule”. Just bands watching bands and old leather neck’d fucks sitting at the bar or shuffling around the pool table. Didn’t speak with the band much that night. They had to sneak back out right after they played, but I’ve followed them on social media ever since.

Their new video, Chillin’ in The Brown, is a dope minute and forty-six seconds long. It requires no real investment from you. Check this shit out.
