On Tour

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.

Mike Gordon | The Gothic Theatre | Review

Denver was the site of the tour closer for Phish’s quirky bass player’s solo project. The ever evolving creative genius put together his phinest lineup to tour with and flex his creative juices that seem to ooze out of him constantly whether it is making music or film or photography. He is an innovator, and a child of sound.

Particle | Rex Theater | 2/13/16 | Review

Since the early 2000’s Particle has been breaking down the barriers between the Jam and EDM genres to define new sounds. Out of this effort has come a new genre of music that we know as jamtronica or livetronica.

The Wood Brothers | 1/29/16 | Review

The Nashville-based Wood Brothers fashioned an alternatively raucous and introspective set last month (1/29) at the McDonald Theatre (Eugene, OR), displaying both their folksy, acoustic-blues roots and some expansive new growth. 

Matisyahu | Santa Cruz, CA | Review

The spotlight shines bright on those for whom it shines, and for some artists, a single misstep or fall can all but extinguish their spirit.

Terrapin Flyer | Portland | 2/7/16 | Review

Terrapin Flyer have long been respected for their Grateful Dead interpretations and their tendency to team up with impressive members of the extended Dead family. The Chicago cover group hit Portland’s Star Theatre February 11 as part of a Mardi Gras Tour, presented by the Grateful Web and day-glo’d by the Merry Pranksters, with old friends Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), and Mark Karan (The Other Ones, RatDog) helping to hold down two stellar sets of New Orleans-charged tunes.

Mardi Gras sounds take over Terrapin

Thirty minutes before show time on February 9, the musicians had all arrived at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California, but band leader Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz was not finished prepping. Backstage, Lebo, bass player Steve Adams, and a three-piece brass section worked on a special arrangement of “China Cat Sunflower” that sounded like a tie-dyed New Orleans Mardis Gras Brass Band.

Dr. Dog | The Catalyst | 1/30/16 | Review

Dr. Dog has emerged from The Psychedelic Swamp in the San Francisco Bay Area, and hit the road hard.

Appearing at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA on Sunday January 31 for the third stop on a North American tour that runs through late March, Dr. Dog is giving their freshman recording effort new life.

Electron | The Gothic Theatre | Review

The members of the Disco Biscuits, Tom Hamilton, and Mike Greenfield have in some way, shape, or form been dominating the music world for the past few years. Without even touring heavily or touring with several different bands, this group of musicians has been drawing a deserved amount of attention nationwide.
