Jonell Mosser plays the Courtyard Concert series finale.

My friends and I would often head down to 12th & Porter to hear Jonell Mosser back in those record store days. She'd hit and hold those notes with such passion and we knew how lucky we were to be there in attendance to hear talent like hers. The comparisons to Janis Joplin were unavoidable. We music lovers were always in awe, so lucky to live in Nashville if only to bear witness to the power and soul of Jonell Mosser.

I only ever saw her at 12th & Porter, but most fans of hers have probably seen her any number of times at Nashville's famous Bluebird Cafe. A true fan of the artist, the staff at the Bluebird notoriously wastes no time in shhhh-ing any patron who dares to talk at all while a musician performs in the tiny venue.

Catch Jonell this Wednesday, October 3, when she sings at the grandfather of the almighty "shhhh": the local library.

The people at the Bluebird shush anyone if you so much as breathe heavy. I understand it's an institution here in Nashville but geez... they need to let loose a little in there.

Tabs: You're totally right. I'm the quietest person I know, and even I've been shushed there.

They can be like traffic cops trying to meet a quota.
