TIMMY TUMBLE SHOW REVIEW

Just this past weekend, Athens’ own action attraction, Timmy Tumble and The Tumblers took to the Tumblin Tennessee road,  stopping briefly in Memphis, Nashville and Chattanooga.   For those that don’t know, this band features Tim Schreiber who fronted  Colonel Knowledge and the Lickity-Splits (ALIVE!/BOMP!), as well as members of All City Canonballers, Mouser and The Humms.  Check OWT this grooving show review we dug up from the band’s stop at the Springwater Bar in Nashville, TN last Friday night :

“First up were Timmy and the Tumblers, who, as we were about to find out, take their identity quite seriously.”  —–“The crowd on hand was pretty thin, but that didn’t discourage Schrieber from trying to engage every last person in the building, taking cues from his time with legendary Athens psych band Dark Meat. He used every inch of his extra-long mic cable to explore the space, offering one verse as he reclined with his feet on the merch table, the next crooned on one knee to an unsuspecting patron, the next as he rolled around on the floor after doing a somersault from the lip of the four-inch-high stage. (Seems he didn’t notice or care that this place has a different kind of five-second rule: If it’s on the floor for more than five seconds, you might be better off burning it, whatever it is.) Straining against his tether, he even sang face-to-face with the regulars watching football. They smiled and nodded — yeah kid, that’s nice. It takes a lot more than that to peak their weird-shit-o-meter.”
