Ke$ha hits up Springwater to support Party Cannon
What does it take to fill Springwater to capacity on a snowy, precarious night for driving in Nashville? An appearance from international pop sensation and former Nashvillian Ke$ha, apparently.
Rumors had been swirling for weeks that the "TiK ToK" singer would be filming a music video at the dive bar; Ke$ha actually came to Springwater to film part of her soon-to-be-released documentary for the MTV network. Much like Kings of Leon’s recent special for VH1, which featured a mini-tour of Nashville, Ke$ha's documentary shoot hit some of her favorite haunts around Music City, wrapping up at Springwater where a few local rock acts — Ghostfinger, Pushy Lips and Party Cannon — were set to perform.
Firecrackers went off inside the building upon Ke$ha's arrival, the smell of sulfur permeating the room as camera crews entered from the back door, swat-team style. Notices were posted on every wall indicating that the crowd agreed to be filmed just by being present.
Despite all the fanfare, the pop star strolled in rather calmly, chatted with fans, drank a few Pabst Blue Ribbons and only grabbed the microphone once during Party Cannon’s set to holler an expletive-laced request for the audience to "get the party started."
No word yet on the exact release date of the documentary, but Ke$ha will embark on her first-ever headlining tour this spring. Dubbed the “Get $leazy” tour, it's already sold out (and no Nashville date has been announced).
