Austin City Limits 2010 | Review & Photos - part II

Saturday started out with the residual natural high that one could only experience from live music that had lifted spirits the night before.  Walking into Zilker park you could hear different sounds floating around from all different directions.  The Very Best was belting out reggae tunes while

Hangin @ Hodi's w/ Great American Taxi

Great American Taxi rolled thru Fort Collins CO on Wednesday, October 27th 2010.  After having a month off the road, Taxi is gearing up for a big holiday weekend playing the Fillmore with Leftover Salmon on Saturday 10/30.  If you’ve ever been to Hodi’s Half Note, when you stand outside you can look across the street and see signs for, “sense of place”, “designs”, and “mountain shop”.  That pretty much sums up a little music joint like Hodis.

Austin City Limits 2010 part I

Having arrived in Austin on Thursday night with a belly full of kolaches from The Little Czech Stop in West, TX and a car full of gear, I was as well prepared as one might be to tackle the music and sun in the days ahead.  As I approached the festival gates on Friday never having been to Austin City Limits before, I felt a sense of familiari

Blowing out the carbs with The Avett Brothers & Grace Potter and The Nocturnals

My father used to call it ‘blowing out the carbs..’ I was a little girl, in Northeast Texas, in the middle 70s. We had old cars, my entire childhood, often hotrods, or in leaner times at least a family car with a big-assed surprise under the hood..

Some of those older hot rods of his were high-performance cars that had four-barrel carburetors. If you drove slowly around town, you'd use only two of the barrels. To exercise the other barrels and keep them from sticking, you'd have to get the car on the highway and accelerate hard for at least a short time.

Blitzen Trapper's Blitz on Boulder

Overall, the general tide in Indie rock pulls heavily towards the twinkley.  Lots of synth, lots of electronics, lots of over-dubbing, lots of special effects, and less dirty guitar with each passing year.  Not that I would attempt to deny the appeal that this trend has – I’ve grown fond of pretty much the whole spectrum over the past decade – but what this trend conspicuously lacks is grit.  Grit and twinkle just don’t go that well together.
