Two groups of students, the real stars of the night, were introduced by Grounded in Music Founder Joe Stallone before performing their original songs they had worked on through the… Continue

CD Review: Patty Griffin's "Downtown Church"

Downtown Church (Credential Records)

Patty Griffin never expected to make a gospel record. In fact, she figured that “Wiggley Fingers” from her 1998 release Flaming Red effectively ruined any chance she might have had; after all she is a self-described “lapsed Catholic.”

But with Downtown Church, her new collection of spiritual standards (and a couple of originals) she proves she has the soul and the pipes to dabble in the music of Sunday morning… Continue

Tom Waits Glitter and Doom Live

Glitter and Doom Live

By Tom Waits

Review by Douglas Heselgrave


Tom Waits doesn’t tour much anymore. At this point in his life and career, he probably doesn’t have to do much of anything he doesn’t want to do. At a time when many artists of his vintage have - with a ‘heigh ho it’s off to work we go’ - embarked on long greatest hits tours and charged exorbitant prices in order to feather their… Continue

Helping Haiti, Austin Style – Sunday, January 25, 2010; Austin Music Hall

Joe Ely was talking to Doug Moyes, from our local venue, The Backyard, asking who was going to have a benefit for Haiti. And Doug told him, “You are.” Once Joe found appropriate phone numbers, he and his manager, Lance, put out the calls. At first he heard nothing. Then, as he put it, the show went from a 2 hour to a 4… Continue

Gun Club: A little bit country

I was first introduced to The Gun Club around 4 years ago by a friend I was playing music with at the time. He made me listen to by Johnny Thunders, The Ramones and Richard Hell and the Voidoids amongst others. We sat down and watched them all on Youtube. I recall him watching me to figure out my reaction thinking, 'Does she like them? Do we musically click? Do her ears work? Am I going to have to throw her out in the name of musical integrity?' A can of beer in one hand, watching various punk… Continue

Jay Farrar/Benjamin Gibbard tour

Sorry if this has been covered extensively here previously, but I wanted to recommend the Farrar/Gibbard tour supporting their release that puts music to Jack Kerouac words. They are doing a short list of dates, opening in Portland last night. I walked in cold, having not heard the record and somehow having kind of missed the boat on Death Cab for Cutie and thus not very familiar with Gibbard (sorry, not intentional, I just don't keep up w/ everything...).

I thought the show was terrific,… Continue

On music being radical, the Supreme Court, AA Bondy, and folk music

I started my life as a musician, gravitating naturally toward music as a means of expression. As far back as I can remember in my life, I've appreciated that a single individual could create something so provocative and stirring as to manipulate my emotions and leave me, on the other side of the song, considering things which had not previously existed anywhere near the fore of my mind.

Later in life, when I'd pick up a guitar and walk onto stages to stand behind a mechanism which… Continue
