Southern Lights Electric

Designer Adam Gatchel is the man behind Southern Lights Electric. Originally from Chicago, he moved to Nashville in 2002 to pursue a career in music. In 2011, after 7 years on the road as a drummer, he transitioned into lighting design and began the company with his wife Jamie. If you check out his gallery, you’ll realize that if you’ve been anywhere that’s somewhere in Nashville, you’ve been under his lights (i.e. Pinewood Social, Rolf and Daughters, Two Ten Jack).

Huckberry introduced us to his work by way of the Original Bell Jar Table Lamp. The wood base is manufactured in their Nashville workshop and each name plate is silk screened by hand. And c’mon. Who doesn’t love an exposed Edison bulb?

Well, we have good news for you if you want this lamp. Huckberry wants you to have this one.

    I’ve got a lot of guilty pleasures when it comes to the music I listen to. For example, my Boy Bandz and Emo/High School Flashback playlists that I made without any sense of irony. Yesterday, an Avril Lavigne song came on and I didn’t change it (don’t worry, it wasn’t “Sk8er Boi”). I’m not ashamed of how much I love dirty rap music, Britney Spears and live Dave Matthews Band albums.

    What else do I love? Those summery-pop-party country songs. Not all of them, but…pretty much all of them. The songs about trucks and beer in Dixie Cups and cut off shorts and dancing on tailgates and summertime and boats and makin’ out in backseats and parties in fields and dirt roads. I CAN’T HELP IT Y’ALL I LOVE THEM. And don’t lie, I know a lot of you do, too.

    So here you go, my most on repeat song by Old Dominion. It’s got everything about so much of the country music I like to play loud when it gets warm. A catchy beat and lyrics mentioning half of what I listed above. Beer on their breath in the the back seat and a summer of sunsets. In the words of Luke Bryan, play it again, play it again, play it again.

    If you’re on my team (or even if you’re not), watch this. I’m completely aware that I’m a sucker and this is not at all shocking but it’s pretty amazing to watch unfold. I don’t even care.

    Album(s) you’re listening to most this week:
    Of course Kendrick’s new record, who isn’t? I think he will win a Grammy for it. J. Cole’s new record is amazing. Jose Gonzalez’s new album is the best thing to work to with headphones on. Overall, I still can’t stop listening to the New Radicals record from 1998, Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too. Gregg Alexander is a mad genius. I’m so sad they broke up. I need him to pull a D’Angelo ASAP.

    superica 007If you’re in Atlanta, you’ve probably heard of Superica, Ford Fry’s new ‘Mex-Tex’ resturaunt in Krog Street Market. Everything the man touches is yummy gold, and this place is no exception, particularly to a native Texan like me. The first thing out of my mouth when we walked in was “I feel like I’m in Austin,” quickly followed by “The Yellow Rose of Texas is playing right now!”

    I’m pretty sure Billy and Sid are the correct answers. Though I respect and admire them, my sartorial heart will always belong to the Italians.
