Younger Brother | Vaccine | Review

Purposefully unclassifiable and borrowing from predecessors such as Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips and, as odd as it may appear, Neil Young,

The New Pornographers | Fox Theater | 4/13/2011

The New Pornographers kicked off their spring tour to a packed house at the Fox Theater on Wednesday night. What you get from a Pornographers show is a mix of melodies and catchy pop hooks tempered with a sufficient balance of edge, and banter laced with plenty of f-bombs and sarcasm.

Seattle Folk Neophytes Fill & Thrill SF's Bottom of the Hill

A blazing beacon of turquoise and teal crowns SF’s Bottom of the Hill, as Seattle sextet The Head and the Heart shuffles modestly onto a cramped stage. Delirious fans push forward for an intimate look at the Pacific Northwest folk rockers, as intense high-pitched shrieks erupt from the audience.

Earthy Day with Greensky Bluegrass | Chicago, IL

Happy Earth Day!  We burned a bunch of gasoline to get all these people into this room, but we try to be low impact once we’re here.  I suppose we could have been super environmental and not played but… Hey! It’s 12:31 am! It’s not Earth Day anymore! Yeah!

Cornmeal & The Giving Tree Band | Chicago, IL

Cornmeal and The Giving Tree Band have a lot in common.  They're both from Chicago, both play bluegrass/folk music, and both even have a set of brothers in the band.  When I asked Wavy Dave Burlingame of Cornmeal what he thought of the greenest band in the land o

Method Man & Redman @ the Fox | 4/7/11 | Review

90s hip-hop took over the Fox Theater in Boulder on Thursday night as legendary rappers Method Man and Redman took the sold out crowd back to a time when “it wasn’t about your cars or your jewelry, it was about smokin’ weed and music.” The duo commanded their audience with vigor through the thick cloud of marijuana s
