Live Review: David Bazan at The EARL, September 28

Live Review: David Bazan at The EARL, September 28

[ 2 ] September 30, 2010 |

By Nathan Berrong I have seen David Bazan, or some musical form of him (Pedro the Lion, Headphones), probably more than anyone else.  I don’t know the exact number of times I have seen him, but it is definitely more than 10 and probably less than 15.  I have seen him on stage sloppy and […]

Live Review: Efterklang, Field Music, Buke and Gass at The EARL, September 27

Live Review: Efterklang, Field Music, Buke and Gass at The EARL, September 27

[ 0 ] September 30, 2010 |

By Giles Turnbull Seeing Buke and Gass live made me re-evaluate many things. If you’ve read my review of Riposte, their debut album, you’ll recall that the Buke is a modified six-string baritone ukulele and the Gass is a hybrind, part guitar, part bass, and in addition to these creations, Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez […]

Live Review: Mastodon, Deftones, Alice In Chains at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood, September 28

Live Review: Mastodon, Deftones, Alice In Chains at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood, September 28

[ 0 ] September 30, 2010 |

Review by Ellen Eldridge; photo by Robb Cohen The tour title, BlackDiamondSkye, creatively showed the unity between bands Mastodon, Deftones, and Alice In Chains, but, at the same time, the bands’ combination of words from the latest album releases lead to the realization that had they stuck with the first word from each release the […]

Girl in a Coma Adventures in Coverland Blackheart Records By Al Kaufman Girl in a Coma are cooler than you. Deal with it. The all-female San Antonio trio formed over their love of all things Smiths and Nirvana when Jenn Alva and Phanie Diaz were still in high school. They took in Phanie’s then 12-year-old […]

Live Review: Aimee Mann, Elizabeth & The Catapult at The Variety Playhouse, September 25

[ 0 ] September 28, 2010 |

By Giles Turnbull Two great things about the Variety Playhouse are that it’s in Little Five Points, Atlanta’s bohemian heart, and that means it’s a short stroll from the best frozen margaritas in Atlanta at the Tijuana Garage. One less great thing is that the venue can be all-seated, which raised a minor complaint from […]

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers Play Smith’s Olde Bar, October 16

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers Play Smith’s Olde Bar, October 16

[ 0 ] September 28, 2010 |

For a musician, Roger Clyne has had a good life. His band, the Refreshments, put out two brilliant rock albums in the ’90s that mixed the dirt and dust of their native Arizona, along with the strong Mexican culture. They caught some radio airplay with “Banditos,” (“I got the pistol, so I get the pesos/ […]

Q&A with The Lonely Forest; Playing The Drunken Unicorn with Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, October 9

Q&A with The Lonely Forest; Playing The Drunken Unicorn with Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, October 9

[ 0 ] September 28, 2010 |

By Alec Wooden It’s one thing for a band to get picked up by a label.  It’s quite another, however, to be that label’s first band. The Lonely Forest, an indie-rock quartet from Anacortes, Wash., has that distinct honor when picked up by Trans, the new imprint label headed by Death Cab For Cutie guitarist […]

CD Review: Rachael Sage — Delancey St.; Playing Eddie’s Attic October 10

Rachael Sage Delancey St. MPress Records By Al Kaufman Rachael Sage is a pop goddess. Equal parts chutzpah and glamour, her songs are glittery and shiny, but carry enough weight that they never never fly away. She’s constantly in fishnets of some sort, but she’s smart enough to start up and maintain her own record company. […]

Live Review: Jimmy Eat World at Center Stage, September 21

[ 0 ] September 27, 2010 |

By Julia Reidy; photo by Luca Eandi As unseasonably hot inside the venue as the month of September has been outside, Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins took the stage and within a song had soaked through more than half of his shirt. Before long, the sweat started flying off the tips of his hair, […]
