5GB Interview: Jacuzzi Boys; Playing the EARL Saturday, June 8th!

[ 0 ] June 7, 2013 |

By Jhoni Jackson As far as bands on Instagram go, Jacuzzi Boys (@jacuzziboys) are among the best. Well, maybe enviable is more accurate. Their feed is full of goofiness, rockin’ and rollin’ and, you know, the occasional hang sesh with Iggy Pop. Onstage, however, they’re not so silly. The trio rips through their psych-laced garage […]

5GB Interview: Stephen Kellogg; Playing @ Eddie’s Attic June 6th!

[ 0 ] June 5, 2013 |

Although his music has been described as Americana, Country-Rock, Folk, Singer/Songwriter, and, somehow, pop, Stephen Kellogg has always thought of it as American-rock n’ roll. It’s a product of his father’s record collection, from Jim Croce and Cat Stevens to Eagles and The Band. Somewhere along the way, he fell in love with showmanship and […]

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 […]

5GB Interview: O’Brother; Playing @ the EARL Friday, May 31

[ 0 ] May 30, 2013 |

By Jhoni Jackson O’Brother has been on a heck-of-a-ride these past few years. The notches in the Atlanta band’s touring belt are enviable: The Features, Thrice, Moving Mountains, Junius and, most recently, Alice in Chains. (Let’s not forget their frequent pairing with their pals in Manchester Orchestra, either.) The ethereal, epic-leaning rock act’s stint with AIC […]

5GB Interview: Cosmonauts; Playing 529 Thursday, May 16

[ 0 ] May 16, 2013 |

By Jhoni Jackson Orange County outfit Cosmonauts boasts a blend of chaos and comedowns in their forever-fuzzy rock ‘n’ roll repertoire. Last year’s If You Wanna Die Then I Wanna Die (Burger Records) hits both amped-up, anxious highs and droning, lost-in-lament lows with equal intensity. Nailing an energetic, raucous jam like “Motorcycle #1” is a feat in […]

5GB Interview w/ Twin Sister; Playing TONIGHT (5/15) @ 529

[ 0 ] May 15, 2013 |

Twin Sister trade in a brand of dreamy pop that’s equal parts Galaxie 500, Tusk-era Fleetwood Mac, and Lynchian weirdness. They claim it will make you feel good enough to hook up with that one person you’re not supposed to hook up with. UH-OH! We caught up with the band before they hit the road […]

[ 0 ] April 22, 2013 |

The title of Gretchen Peters’ new Hello Cruel World is a pun on the famed exit line – a joke that, like the lovely melodies and deliciously textured arrangements framing these 11 songs – sweetens this captivating music spun from a year of turmoil. The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Nashville calls Hello Cruel World her […]
