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.

Bonnaroo 2010 Part II

Saturday, June 12, 2010

The heat resumed, but it felt so much worse after two days of partying and little sleep. I was appreciative of one thing on this sweltering morning wake-up; the showers had short lines for men, and they were only seven dollars. Therefore, although I really wanted to catch Baaba Maal’s set, I felt more rejuvenated going into the press conference with a fresh shower, breakfast, and an iced coffee. I was ready for a new day at my favorite festival.

Trombone Shorty with Lenny Kravitz, jamming and recording

In the midst of his second European tour in the last six months Trombone Shorty (Troy Andrews) was joined by his mentor and former bandleader Lenny Kravitz, who surprised Troy’s fans onstage in Paris on October 13th to sit in on drums.

Jesse & Friends Tribute to Jerry Garcia & Robert Hunter

Dear Dead Heads:

In 1964, Jerry Garcia and his buddy Sandy Rothman packed up a tape recorder and took off for the American South on a bluegrass pilgrimage. One of the groups they most wanted to see was “Jim and Jesse” (McReynolds), of Dothan, Alabama. They saw them, and they had a ball.

Jim and Jesse went on to legendary status in the bluegrass world with more than 45 years at the Grand Ol’ Opry, Grammys, and membership in any Hall of Fame that means anything to this music.
