As a child of the eighties and a huge fan of all of Karl Denson’s projects, this show was a must see for me.

Dandy Warhols | Showbox | Seattle, WA | Review

Thunderous oscillations expand violently from center stage, miraculously freed from a vintage Moog chipset only to be captured by my outer pinna, which sends the tone swirling inward toward the depths of my cochlea. The synthetic drone weaves through a latticework of scenestirs and technocrats occupying Seattle's Showbox Theater this evening.

Domino Effect | 'Music For My Soul' | New CD Review

Rightly named Music For My Soul, Domino Effect created an album that elicits a feel good vibe throughout. Starting (and finishing) with a positive message, Domino Effect begins their new album with Chains and It’s Alright. Their sound is reminiscent of a snippet of a few bands.

Dangermuffin | 'Olly Oxen Free' | New Music Review

Olly Oxen Free, the newest album from South Carolina-based band Dangermuffin, is a fun listen. Blending elements of roots rock with a sprinkling of southern slides, improvised instrumentals, and meandering drum breaks, the trio plays an interesting sort of rambling-jam music that showcases quite a bit of range.

Curumin: A Man of Many Meanings

Any good musician uses language as a series of stepping stones to pass personal expression on to the audience. It is what binds us together.

Shoe Groove | Ace Bar Chicago | 6/15/12 | Review & Photos

Last night as I entered the Ace Bar for Shoe Groove, I was greeted by Old Shoe’s manager Mike Kaiz.  He saw that I was burdened with my arms full of stuff and gestured to the back booth.  Reflecting back upon this, not only was this show a great summer skin showing show, but also an entire club where everyone could set their stuff together.

GrandMothers of Invention | Mother's Day | Boulder Theater

In a music career spanning over three decades, Frank Zappa put out over 60 albums. Some call him a genius. Those who don’t simply do not understand (pardon me and my asshole opinion—but I am right). Zappa has always had top-tier musicians in his line-ups, many of which have looked at his music charts and shuddered under the pressure.
