CD Review: Dream Theater – Dream Theater

CD Review: Dream Theater – Dream Theater

[ 0 ] September 23, 2013 |

Review by Ellen Eldridge   Don’t laugh at the fact that the self-titled album comes as the band’s 12th release. Instead, take it as a signal that Dream Theater has reinvented itself. “We felt like this is a period in our career where the music we are making is so right for who we are […]

CD Review: Ministry – From Beer to Eternity

CD Review: Ministry – From Beer to Eternity

[ 0 ] September 10, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge   Calling the thirteenth Ministry release schizophrenic implies that Jourgensen’s work isn’t grounded in reality. From the chaotic beats and frenzied samples to the intermittent bursts from Jourgensen himself, From Beer to Eternity sounds off about the world. From the astounded “Holy cow!” introducing “Hail to His Majesty (Peasants)” through “Punch in […]

Live Review and Photos: Marilyn Manson with Picture Me Broken

[ 0 ] July 18, 2013 |

Review and Photos by Ellen Eldridge Marilyn Manson appeared in the mid-1990s as the opening band for Nine Inch Nails alongside the Jim Rose Freak Show. His passion and hunger drove him to break glass against his skull and use the pieces to cut his chest underneath a solitary hanging light bulb. This self-destructive act […]

Interview: Picture Me Broken – Opening for Marilyn Manson @ The Tabernacle July 17th!

[ 0 ] July 15, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge Artistic vision, intricate musicianship, dark, poetic lyrics that explore heavy, controversial topics and a profound message are the very essence of Picture Me Broken. This breath-of-fresh-air band that shatters any “young band” or “female-fronted” stereotypes, because though PMB is mostly comprised of 20-year-olds, this is one of the few bands bringing back […]

5GB Interview with Della Mae, Playing @ Eddie’s Attic June 30th!

[ 0 ] June 28, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge Boston-based Della Mae founder Kimber Ludiker searched for multi-talented, multi-faceted young women with their instruments, blended them together so that their musical and background differences would melt into a deliciously melodic brew, and then threw them into Cash Cabin Studio along with masters Bryan Sutton and Paul Q. Kolderie to bring about […]

5GB Interview: Shannon and the Clams – playing The Earl June 23

[ 0 ] June 21, 2013 |

What started as an open mic project for a shy, young Shannon Shaw (vocals, bass), to try out some tunes ended with the Clams’ meeting and forming a band, Shannon and the Clams, comprised of Shaw, Cody Blanchard (vocals, guitar) and Ian Amberson (drums, vocals). Haunting yet beautiful growls emanate from the band’s two lead […]

Interview: Kylesa; Playing @ The EARL June 21st!

[ 0 ] June 19, 2013 |

One thing you need to know is that like many great bands that have stuck around for a decade or more, Kylesa defies convention, categorization and they are constantly evolving. This individualism, among other places, can also be found as an ongoing theme in the lyrics of Kylesa’s two core, founding members, Phillip Cope and […]

CD Review: Misery Loves Chachi – Long Live the Lazy Choir

[ 0 ] June 11, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge Nathan Sadler, the musical voice behind Misery Loves Chachi, spent more than three years experimenting and commiserating among his keyboards to compose 25 songs, of which four tracks representing the lighter and more hopeful side of displacement and unemployment emerged. These four songs are being released today (June 11) as the debut […]

CD Review: Megadeth – Super Collider (Released TODAY June 4th)

[ 0 ] June 4, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge Leave it to me to completely miss the countdown, slow stream of singles and sneak peaks leading to one of my favorite bands’ 14th album, Super Collider. I had seen flashes of criticisms and the typical call outs “MegaDave” on Facebook, but as I powered through the laundry list of things in […]

5GB Interview: Hot Club of Cowtown – Playing Eddie’s Attic June 7

[ 0 ] June 3, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge The impression that the Austin, Texas, band Hot Club of Cowtown is in some way a country act, especially in the current climate of American popular music, is somewhat misleading since the Hot Club’s influences have always been as much the musette music of the smoky bistros of 1930s Paris as they […]

[ 0 ] May 28, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge Upon hearing the first grungy bend of “Hollow” on The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, the fifth studio release by Alice In Chains, fans will quickly need to reconcile their feelings on whether or not the band is stretching its musical wings enough, but the future looks bright for this group of survivors […]

By Ellen Eldridge We caught up with drummer DX of UV Race! The Aussie genius avant-tards UV Race, a band that drags melodious pop songs through a glam-punk aesthetic similar to bands like Ty Segall and Eddie Current Suppression Ring, released its third LP last year on In The Red Records alongside the band’s first […]

Picture Book & Live Review: Beth Hart @ Smith’s Olde Bar 5/7!

[ 0 ] May 8, 2013 |

Review and Photos by Ellen Eldridge The single worst thing about last night’s sold out Beth Hart show was trying to reconcile my love of the music with the need to get photos worthy of my press pass. Crawling through a crowd—however politely asking for passage to the front—assures one of many sideways glances and […]

By Ellen Eldridge Beth Hart brought her life experiences, both positive and negative, together for her April 2 release, Bang Bang Boom Boom, which was produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Joe Bonamassa, Jimmy Page/The Black Crowes, Dream Theater). The Kennedy Center Honors show-stopping performance of Jeff Beck and Beth Hart’s “I’d Rather Go Blind” […]
