John Butler Channels Rick James at the Fox

A while ago, John Butler cut his hair.  After sporting a set a dread locks for much of his adult life, the guitar master decided to chop them all off.

Trey Anastasio | Jefferson Theater | Charlottesville, VA | 2/8/10

I’ve always secretly felt badly for people with birthdays that fell during the deep winter.  Mine’s in late August.. Pretty much everywhere I’ve ever lived or visited, I’ve found August to be lush, warm, and full of nature’s bounty.  Birthday gatherings for me were pretty much always outside, and in nature. I feel most comfortable near trees, and earth, and sky, and bright, warm sunshine.   To me, a birthday in February, for example, must surely be frigid, and dreary, and well – not that much fun.  Or so I assumed.

The New Deal | Bluebird Night Club | 1/28/2010 | Review

The New Deal made their triumphant return to the Hoosier state on the second night of a four date Midwest tour.  The Bluebird Night Club in Bloomington Indiana played host to the Canadian-based electronic trio on a cold Thursday night. They are currently touring in support of their recent release LIVE: TORONTO 7.16.2009.

Tea Leaf Green | The Jefferson Theatre | Review

It’s good to live in the Charlottesville, Virginia area, these days.. The recent remodeling and re-opening of the historic Jefferson Theatre has energized the local music scene, and provided an injection of even more entertainment variety on any given night of the week.  Even in a snowstorm.

Home Cookin' with the Motet

When I got the news that I could write a review for the Motet’s Best of their Halloween shows at my favorite indoor venue in the world, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only was it just their “best of” show, but it was the 7th Anniversary Grand Re-Opening Celebration for the venue that has demonstrated its appeal to the fans of music in many ways.

Play Live Dead & The Dead Guise Jam Out At Ashkenaz

On a cool Saturday night my buddy Dean and I drove down to the Ashkenaz on San Pablo Ave. to catch two outstanding Grateful Dead cover bands I have seen quite frequently in the Bay Area over the last year, The Dead Guise and Play Live Dead (formerly known as Live Dead.) Dean had never been to a show at Ashkenaz, nor had he seen either band, so I was quite excited to introduce him to this incredible live music, especially because he was a big fan of The Dead like myself.

Tatanka | Hodi's Half Note | 2/3/10 | Review

Tatanka made its way to a speaker near me on Feb 3rd, 2010.  Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins welcomed them with a free keg of PBR for this Wednesday night show.  Ladies, if you want to find your very own fried egg, you can probably pick one out from the sausage fests known as free keg night at Hodi’s.

I arrived after the keg had dried up and the remains of the crowd resembled a frat party.  However there are key differences.

Reverend Horton Heat: Multifarious

It’s been four years since I have seen Reverend Horton Heat. The last show I witnessed the magic that this band projects was at the Wakarusa Music Festival in 2006. Coincidentally, it was the first review that I ever wrote. I was anticipating the same amount of energy, if not more since the show was in Boulder, and they always have a great cult following here. One notable pre-show note that I made was about the ticket prices.

Furthur | New Years Eve! | San Fran | 2009>2010

The anticipation outside San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center was at an all time peak! Dead Heads everywhere with their long hair, dread locks, beards, hemp necklaces and tie-dyed clothing were lined up outside the venue either in line or holding up their pointer finger praying for a miracle ticket. This was the kind of atmosphere I had dreamt about for years! It was beyond a rock n’ roll concert! It was the indescribable coming together of thousands of Dead Heads, who are a tribe, who become joined into one strong force once they step a foot through those auditorium doors.
