Keller Williams | George's Majestic Lounge | 11/29/12 | Review

Submitted by Michelle Miesse on Tue, 12/04/2012 - 11:04 am

Barefoot and comfortable as in his own kitchen, a slightly bearded (possibly participating in No-shave November…), Keller Williams took the stage at George’s Majestic Lounge. And on such an unusually warm night in late November, the performance was perfect. The show started almost as promptly as I have seen a show in a bar venue start – which was nice.

The Werks | The Rex Theatre | Pittsburgh, PA | 12/1/12 | Review

Submitted by Ryan Neeley on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 6:37 pm

Landing a coveted slot between Phil Lesh and Friends and Bob Weir at one of the top musical festivals in the east does not guarantee a band success when it comes to their commercial ventures, but Ohio jamtronica supergroup The Werks have parlayed their April 20th release of their first major self-titled release and their much talked about June performance at

Whiskey Tango | Quixote's True Blue | 11/30/12 | Review

Submitted by underwoodschumm on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 4:14 pm

While the crowd at Quixote’s True Blue wasn’t doing the tango on Friday night, they were certainly stomping their boots and spinning in circles, and no doubt throwing back whiskey. Mystical, dreadlock-clad fairies roamed between the two rooms sporting local jam bands, and when standing against the walls stocked with Grateful Dead memorabilia, could be confused with a page out of a “Where’s Waldo” book.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse: 'Walking Like Giants' in Philly | Review

Submitted by John Tarricone on Sun, 12/02/2012 - 6:54 am

At age 67, Neil Young is looking classically weathered for a rocker his age, but no more so than any other celebrity who came of age in the 1960's, and definitely not withered in form . The "Godfather Of Grunge" saddles up again with bandmates Billy Talbot (Bass), Ralph Molina (Drums) & Frank "Poncho" Sampedro (Guitar) of Crazy Horse for "The Alchemy Tour", showcasing the band's first original material in nine years from their October 2012 release "Psychedelic Pill".

Conspirator & EOTO | Theatre of Living Arts | 11/24/12 | Review

Submitted by Faye Peck on Thu, 11/29/2012 - 4:51 pm

2012 has been a transformational year for mankind. As I'm lying in bed drifting into sleep to the soundtrack of Jimi Hendrix's, 'Are You Experienced,' it dawns on me how similar the movements of 2012 have been to the concepts behind much of the music that transpired during the Summer of Love.

EDM For Sandy Relief Benefit Concert | Review

Submitted by Shaun Stevens on Sat, 11/24/2012 - 12:15 pm

On Monday, Nov 19, The "EDM for Sandy Relief" benefit concert for the victims of Super Storm Sandy as well as The American Red Cross was held at the one and only Gramercy Theater.  NY based label Brooklyn Fire and NY based entertainment marketing & PR firm UG strategies collaborated with Live Nation and NY based GBH Events to make sure the city that never sleeps truly didn't sleep.  The benefit was also home to a food and clothing drive for the

Strange Arrangment Pre-Thanksgiving in Chicago | Preview

Submitted by June Reedy on Tue, 11/20/2012 - 8:46 am

Dear Strange Arrangement,Your Pre-Thanksgiving day bash is going to be off the hook.  I know this because I’m still toasty from the sweater of love you gifted me from your last Park West show in January.  The sassy sweaty sexy highway has been driving me through 2012.  When I count my Thanksgiving blessings I count you 3 xs! Chicago Farmer! Greensky!

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

Submitted by Jason Chiu on Mon, 11/19/2012 - 1:10 pm

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. Tuesday’s Generationals show was a perfect example for why this is so.
