K I M O C K | Center for the Arts | Review

Combining delicately delivered music hypnotics and subtleties with a full band sound, guitar master Steve Kimock and his new group of accomplices, dubbed K I M O C K, delivered on March 6 a satisfying two-set performance at the intimate Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, California.

The Hip Abduction | Gold Under the Glow

My first introduction to The Hip Abduction (“THA”) was in review of their upcoming release Gold Under the Glow (ILS Group/Caroline/Universal), and immediately I was taken in by the infectious grooves and catchy vocals the septet from the Gulf Coast of South Florida offer.  I immediately felt transported to a tropical beach with an umbrella drink in hand, an ocean breeze brushing against my face and warm sand between my toes, dancing

Mother Hips | Moe's Alley | Review/Photos

With a long, arduous 2015 behind him, The Mother Hips’ cofounding guitarist Tim Bluhm slowly adjusts his seat center stage at Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz, CA last Friday, February 26. It’s hard to tell if his facial expression bears sharp pain or intense anticipation.

Neko Case + Felice Bros. | Boston | Review

An adoring crowd greeted Neko Case and the Felice Brothers at House of Blues Boston on Wednesday night.

Elephant Revival | Petals | Review

When Elephant Revival took to the studio in Maine to record their 4th LP – Petals(Thirty Tigers), with Josh Ritter’s long time collaborator and producer Sam Kassirer, it would be the first time doing so without founding member and singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sage Cook.  It would also be the band’s studio introduction of Charlie Rose who stepped in Sage Cook’s place following his departure.  For the uninitia

Zoso | Stage AE | Pittsburgh, PA | Review

Zoso: The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience, are not your average tribute band. And when trying to replicate one of the greatest rock bands of all time, an average tribute band will not do. These guys are the real deal!

The Infamous Stringdusters @ The Fillmore

Approaching the middle of a 34-date winter tour in support of the release of their sixth full-length studio album, Ladies & Gentleman, The Infamous Stringdusters are having a ball.

David Grisman | Ophelia's | Review

David Grisman has been a household name in the acoustic and bluegrass world for many years. His innovations in these genres as well as creating his own genre in “Dawg” music, named by Jerry Garcia, has inspired new generations of bluegrass for decades. Dawg music can be best described as the combination of jazz, bluegrass, and acoustic folk music. These are American staples and combining genres is what American music is all about.

Melvin Seals | The Warfield | SF | Review

While the San Francisco Bay Area might have some mighty fine music venues in the present, there are fewer that remain from the city’s bright musical past.  One of the few that’s stood the test of time is The Warfield. Right off of Market Street, adjacent to downtown’s Tenderloin neighborhood, it’s hard to tell the insides majesty from the somewhat seedy exterior.
