Great American Taxi Rolls into Boulder

Hometown heroes Great American Taxi played to an exuberant crowd of pre-weekend revelers last Friday night at Colorado's historic Boulder Theater.  The band, which is the brainchild of Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon fame, cranked out their fusion of country, rock, folk and electric bluegrass until the wee hours of Saturday morning, much to the disappointment of the audience,

An Evening with Eels in Boulder, Colorado

Not every rock star could get away with showing a movie about themselves and calling it the opening act, but then again, not every rock star is Mark Oliver Everett, songwriter and front man for the Eels.  Everett, or E as he is affectionately known, is the son of the world-renowned quantum physicist Hugh Everett III, who, since his death, has been raised to a sort of cult status among physicists and lay people alike for his theory

Phix's 500th Show at the Boulder Theater

"It doesn't get any easier than this" gushed Paul Murin on stage at Phix's 500th show at the Boulder Theatre.  The cosmic forces bringing this band together for yet another evening of capturing the magic and thrills of Phish's music were evident throughout the jams.  Keyboardist Derek Berg has relocated back to Chicago, started his own side project, and moved o

Bob Weir and Ratdog at The Beacon Theater

Someone turned over a large rock and roll subculture over the past three night run at "The Beacon Theater", as "Deadheads", "hippies", and "throwbacks", have resurfaced to see "Bob Weir and Ratdog".  No other band in bluegrass, blues, country, folk, reggae, or rock and roll history, has woven such a distinct counterculture and sense of community, other than "The Grateful Dead", and the bands offshoots.  Known to "Deadheads" as "The Dead", the band's inception began in 1965 in San Francisco, California, from a jugband known as "The Warlocks".

Bobby and Ratdog played the Beacon Theater in New York City the past three nights.  One of our writers, Sharon Abella, was on hand and snapped some photos of the show.  Check back soon for her write-up from the night. And a special thank you to Dennis McNally for his wonderful hospitality.

Enjoy,

Always Unconventional: Toubab Krewe

The word conventional will never apply to a band like Toubab Krewe, that is unless you consider a strange mix of traditional African instruments, electric guitars, two drummers, dancing, and touches of Southern Rock, Jazz, Reggae, and Latin sounds to be normal.  This highly experimental but infectious sound is what has propelled Toubab Krewe into the realm of fan favorites at festivals across America.  Once again I had the privilege

Welcome to the Rock Show - Jason Isbell & Will Hoge

Last summer, shortly after Jason Isbell dissolved his ties with the Drive-by Truckers, I had the opportunity to catch him at another local DC venue, Rock & Roll Hotel.  The small space was packed with Truckers fans eager to hear one of the three voices behind the band, solo, and able to interpret songs as he deemed fit.  Needless to say nobody left disappointed, and the next time Isbell

Madeleine Peyroux at the Scottish Rite Auditorium

"It was all about the voice tonight," said Ruthie Foster, the spirited opening act from Texas. She couldn't have been more correct. Walking into the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, NJ is an experience in itself. The historic 1930's art deco venue is an extremely intimate theater which holds about 1,000 people in a tight moon shape circle around the stage. The ambiance was perfect for one of the greatest voices alive today.

State of the Scene: Late Shows are Just Getting Tiresome

We've all been there.  It is 11:15 at the music club, and the band you have been excited to see for months still has not taken the stage.  Show time said 9:00 but you have yet to hear any music.  You give a big yawn, and look at your watch again.  Nothing.
