Live Review: GG King, The Fresh & Onlys, King Khan & the Shrines @ The EARL, March 27

[ 0 ] March 30, 2010 |

Written by Jhoni Jackson Locally grown from Carbonas seeds, GG King played their raw, punk-inclined tunes as fast as their sound’s general tempo, cramming in as many songs as possible in the allotted time.

Live Review: Gold Ghost, Happy Birthday, Wet Dog, Vivian Girls @ 529, March 25

[ 0 ] March 30, 2010 |

Written by Jhoni Jackson Opening for Vivian Girls – a well known, long-hyped band that’s probably on their last round of performances at lower capacity venues – is a pretty sweet deal. Atlanta’s fledgling Gold Ghost landed that opening spot, starting the show around 10:30 p.m.  After some post-show research, the band appears a bit […]

CD Review: John Milstead — Sides of the Soul; Playing Buffalo Wild Wings, April 9

John Milstead Sides of the Soul By Al Kaufman John Milstead sounds so much like Marc Cohn that at any time you would expect him to start singing about putting on his blue suede shoes and boarding a certain plane to Memphis.
