"It's been a long time since I have seen PS. It was in T in the Park in Scotland and the band were rather resplendent in tartan robes for the occasion. It was only mid set that I realized that it was Tim DeLaughter who was the ringmaster of…"

"Oh dear. I have seen no live footage of the band as yet, and probably - make that definitely - wont go and see them when they come to the UK due to the exorbitant ticket fees, but I was wanting them to be good. The…"

The Polyphonic Spree-Live at Webster Hall, NYC-May 23, 2012

The Polyphonic Spree are back out on the road, bringing their good-time cheer and revelry to adoring audiences in much the same vein as they have been doing for the past ten years. If you haven’t seen them since their early 2000’s heyday, here’s what you missed: Nothing.  Yes, there are still 20-plus boy/girl band members onstage wearing long, white robes emblazoned with corresponding male/female hearts.  Yep, the stage is still packed with a harp, Theremin, keyboards, drums, and pretty much…See More

"@Terry: You're right about judging the sound before they even begin. We already know that the band is hot, and although the voices are older, once the engineers work out the loops and auto-tuning, they'll sound young and lively again.…"

"@Ryan, Thank you for pointing out Brian's ongoing psychiatric challenges. That he's been on stage now and touring for more than a decade is some kind of miracle. During that time I've seen him get better and better...but, his…"

"Paul...I agree.  I just hope the tour doesn't set Brian back in terms of his mental health.  That would be a travesty.  I hope it's something he didn't get talked into just for the $."

"I'm of two minds here, as I am on most things. The first mind sees Wiilie Mays stumbling around for the New York Mets at the end of his stellar career - a sad sight indeed. ON the other hand, Brian Wilson and the Boys produced such a wealth of…"

The Beach Boys...Why?

The fanfare this past week in the music community has been moving along quickly from story to story. Saturday brought the news of Whitney Houston’s death, which in turn led to hastily planned tributes and memorials that most of America witnessed Sunday evening at The Grammy Awards. Now, the narrative has moved on to the announcement of the performers at this year’s upcoming Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Once invoking hysterics only amongst the jam-band set of world travelers, Bonnaroo…

Bottle Rockets-Not So Loud

The Bottle Rockets are true rock and roll veterans.

 

Pushing their 20-year Anniversary, this St. Louis country-rock outfit has seen it all, traveling the world and playing venues dank and dark, polished and pristine, and long-ago forgotten. At the head of it all is Brian Henneman, a wryly observational singer-songwriter who worships at the altar of Sahm, Van Zandt, and Nelson. Though never as popular as some of his like-minded contemporaries, Henneman’s work stands up well as…

Wilco-The Whole Love

Nearly ten years ago, Jeff Tweedy and Wilco were basking in the glory.  Having successfully usurped the music industry by buying back the label rejected Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, the band members were gracing magazine covers, topping year-end lists, and playing to the largest crowds of their career.  Since then, Wilco’s fan base has gotten exponentially bigger and watched them turn into a live juggernaut as the lineup has stabilized around the expert craftsmen Tweedy has assembled… Continue

Kurt Vile Live at the Cat's Cradle/August 9, 2011

Acknowledging that the band has been on the road for what “has seemed like forever”, Kurt Vile and his accompanying two-piece The Violators, hit Carrboro Tuesday night, bringing with them a healthy dose of rock and roll ferocity.  Playing behind the excellent new album, Smoke Ring For My Halo, Vile and company regaled the near-capacity crowd with their expert blend of eccentric lyrical tales, noodly guitar freakouts, and pounding riffage.  On record, Vile alternates between spooky,…
