On Tour

Generationals & Races | Cafe du Nord | San Francisco | Review

Small venues are a mixed bag. Maybe it’s due to the prevalence of festivals popping up over the land or just the trend of me attending more concerts in larger venues, but smaller venues don’t sound quite as good as they did before. Don’t get me wrong, Cafe du Nord is a wonderful place. As mentioned before, it’s a really charming former speakeasy, but its’ intimacy is a gift and a curse.

Papadosio | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 11/15/2012 | Review

When Papadosio took over the Fox Theatre Thursday night and turned it into a hypnotic display of light, sound and video projections, the crowd and band both knew that something special was in store. This was documented at the end of the show when lead guitarist Anthony Thogmartin called Colorado a second home for the band to mass cheers and rooster crows.

B.B. King | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 11/12/2012 | Review

The legend of the Delta Blues is a somber story. Its grandfather died at the age of twenty-seven under debated circumstances. The legacy that Robert Leroy Johnson left Mississippi was a new style of guitar playing and singing that would eventually become the predominant defining form of American roots music. Nearly every style of American-born music can be structurally traced back to blues.

Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman | Freight & Salvage | Review

Berkeley's Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse provides a comfortable setting for artists and fans just 1 block from Shattuck Avenue...and all it has to offer.

Xavier Rudd | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 11/11/12 | Review

This November 11, Boulder, Colorado’s Fox Theater hosted Xavier Rudd, one of Australia’s most iconic voices, for the last American stop along his Spirit Bird Tour. Behind his custom drum set equipped with two didgeridoos, Xavier Rudd appeared like a mythic creature from an aborigine creation story.

Infamous Stringdusters | Cervantes | 11/10/2012 | Review

One of the more humorous developing attitudes of newer bluegrass acts is that they don’t like applying the label “bluegrass”. Though their instrumentation, song selection, and style all point to an existing form. The trend seems to be that up-and-comings feel marginalized by being cornered into accepting the label. In certain ways I understand this fear.

Beats Antique | Contraption Vol. 2 | New Music Review

Beats Antique brings us a new 8 track EP bursting with many styles of world music and theatrical composition, its impossible not to get into it.  Beats Antique was formed in San Francisco, California and in 2007 created their first album.

Rumpke Mountain Boys | Trashgrass CD Release Party | Review

There are bands that throw a CD Release Party, and there are bands that are a party every time they take the stage, no matter what night of the week it is.  Cincinnati bred fastgrass up and comers The Rumpke Mountain Boys, the region’s ultimate newgrass party band, took over the stage of the Beachland Ballroom, where

The Werks | Baltimore Soundstage | Batimore, MD | 11/3/12

Sometimes all that a band needs to do is throw a small party before your tour, inviting your closest friends to wish you luck as you head out on your first major tour across America.  Or you can do things like The Dayton, OH bred psychedelic powerhouse band The Werks, who after their now legendary performances at their own festival, aptly named Werk Out, immediately launched
