Nashville: the capital of Tennessee and the state’s second-largest city, which is widely and deservedly known as Music City. Pussy: a cat, a willow, a desired destination.

Put them together, and you get either a hooker doing business in the fourth-largest city in the southeastern United States or the sound of a musical chainsaw shredding a live amp while a microburst blows through a Guitar Center warehouse. The latter Nashville Pussy is the work of vocalist/guitarist Blaine Cartwright, who howls like Lemmy after swallowing a thistle dipped in bourbon and liquid smoke; his wife Ruyter Suys, whose guitar attack would have to be dialed back to be weaponized by the military; and the thunder-rolling/lightning-flashing rhythm section of bassist Bonnie Buitrago and drummer Jeremy Thompson.

Nashville Pussy with Valient Thorr and Moonbow plays Tuesday at Southgate House Revival. More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com.
