On Tour

The Congress Live @ The Clementine | Harrisonburg, VA | Review

I was beginning to worry about the health of rock and roll.  I grew up on mid-late 70s rock.  At that time rock  was the music, [along with disco,] that was really the 'pop' of the day.  A lack of Internet and MTV surely helped assist this reality.  My reality, anyway.  I lived in a number of areas as a little kid where -- regardless of demographic -- the main music blaring from one's house would be blues-rock-based.

The Congress | Washington, DC | Review + Interview | 9/20/12

The Congress are living the last American adventure.  They've been on the road in support of their debut record, Whatever You Want, for months.  They've been hauling a trailer full of equipment from city to town, looking for a place to spend the night, just trying to make a living.  "Every night we're in a new city.  We don't know anything about the venue.  We don't know anybody."  Says guitarist Scott Lane.  "Or we know everybody.  It's crazy."

Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three | Cafe Du Nord | Review

Nursing a cold and wanting to escape a chilly summer night in San Francisco, I ducked into Café du Nord to hear some music from the roots of America. Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three played an invigorating set in the cozy basement venue. A former speakeasy, Café du Nord is the perfect venue to see a band that calls back to early 20th century music.

The Head and the Heart Bring Rowdiness, Forget Harmonies

Rattling floorboards and seats caused by the stomping of a rowdy crowd is a common occurrence at sporting events. Such a regularity becomes rather out of place at a concert venue however, as was the case for The Head and the Heart’s sold out Boulder show. Hollers and whistles accompanied the vibrations during the set, at its finale, and held out through to the encore.

Alan Evans Trio | The Other Side | Denver, CO | Review

The way the Alan Evans Trio was formed was an act of fate.   Guitarist Danny Mayer was drawn to Alan Evans first as a fan of the legendary group Soulive and then a musical connection was established that only magnified when they linked up with organ player Beau Sasser. Firstly, the combined energy that these guys have together is mind blowing.

BoomBox | George's Majestic Lounge | Review & Photos

When you go to a BoomBox show, there are some things you can expect: danceable music, an awesome lightshow and friendly faces. On Friday night in Fayetteville, that is exactly what I found at George’s Majestic Lounge.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood | Fox Theater | 9/15/12 | Review

Chris Robinson, front man for The Black Crowes, has been touring around with a band he calls The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. It’s wonderful to see such a prominent figure like Robinson play in intimate venues like the Fox, close up, starting from scratch. The Brotherhood sounds a lot like The Grateful Dead.

Crossing Mason-Dixon: North Mississippi Allstars in Boulder

At 18 I moved to the deep south for school. But not until I was tripping over the shoelaces of 20 did I realize that not everyone down there liked me.

Déjà Vu and Vujà Dé: Eras of a Reckoning with CSN, in Concert

“Just had that . . . it's weird. Just had that little feeling . . . you ever get that funny little feeling [of] 'vujà dé'? No, not déjà vu. This is vujà dé. This is the strange feeling that, somehow, none of this has ever happened before. And then it’s gone.”

~ George Carlin (RIP George – if anybody deserves some of that RESpecT, you do, too, brother!)
