Selwyn Birchwood in Durham Central Park (Durham, N.C. - July 18, 2014)

If you go to a Selwyn Birchwood show, the dance floor should be packed with enthusiastic hoofers. If not, the young Florida-based guitarist has a back-up plan: To ensure that there's at least one dancer gyrating to the beat, a mummified muppet voodoo doll dangles by his neck in front of the kick drum, hinged limbs jerking with every thump, paying silent homage to the exuberant, vibrant Birchwood blues soundtrack.

Friday night's show at Durham, N.C.' s Central Park had few…

Lake Street Dive Motorboats into the Big Time

The usual pleasantries open the interview with Lake Street Dive's singer extraordinaire, Rachael Price. There’s a mention of a shared acquaintance and a nod to the band's previous appearances in town, the first before a tiny crowd at Norfolk's Taphouse in 2011. "Oh, I recall," Price says. "That was a very memorable show."

I push the comment aside, deciding to return to it at the end of the interview. It's been a memorable year since Lake Street Dive played Norfolk in the…

A Preview: Pt. Reyes’ Far West Fest Is a Huge Model for Pint-sized Festivals

For the last six years, my husband Dave and I have been involved in a funky little homegrown festival called the Far West Fest in Pt. Reyes Station, Calif. For us, it’s a great way to get back to our theatrical roots while helping to support live music. We have stage-managed at least one of the three stages and been involved in set-up,…

Jeff Crosby & The Refugees - All Nighter (Album Review)

“Stop Runnin,” the first track, launches in with a very Tom-Petty-esque guitar part. Shortly after, Crosby’s gruff vocal hits it and I am listening. You got me, Jeff. Full band, rock and roll. Its good. The second track has a little bit of a Swinging Steaks feel to me, with the lead line of the electric guitar. I like the Steaks, this again, is good and I am hooked.

Subtle harmonies on the chorus just plain work. It’s a quick-fire lyric-verse situation. Crosby’s vocals have…
