Black Venus

Black Venus stopped by Taco Bout It Headquarters for a long overdue chat about what Black Venus is, where it’s headed next, and how they’ve used heavy blues, heartbreak, and Charles Baudelaire’s poetry as well as his mistress for inspiration to transform into one of Nashville’s most earnest and energetic Indie acts. Check out this episode and hear all about their upcoming show with Taco Bout It Friends Kirch, Crease Reader, and Virtue Furnace.
