LIVE: J Mascis Strips Down for NPR

November 22nd, 2014 · Comments Off on LIVE: J Mascis Strips Down for NPR

Even though his de facto method of transmission with Dinosaur Jr. is at ear-splitting volume, J Mascis proves his chops are not merely a byproduct of noise with an acoustic performance for NPR. Mascis runs through a medley of songs off his latest solo record for Sub Pop, the unsurprisingly solid Tied to a Star, […]

STREAM: St. Vincent’s Complete Live Set at Pitchfork Music Festival

November 22nd, 2014 · Comments Off on STREAM: St. Vincent’s Complete Live Set at Pitchfork Music Festival

St. Vincent’s self-titled fourth record is without a doubt in my top ten for the year. Her music is an idiosyncratic mix of post-Bowie stylized weirdness, syncopated, dance-able rhythms, and off-kilter guitar bravado. There is no one in her league. Her lyrics are intellectual and articulate with the requisite amount of oddness to match the […]

Marnie Stern will make you swoon

March 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on Marnie Stern will make you swoon

Saw Marnie Stern live Friday night in Charlotte, NC at this dive bar called Snug Harbour. Stern was far less imposing than I had assumed. For some reason the artwork for her sophomore LP on Kill Rock Stars, This Is It…, makes her seem lanky and tall. In person, she’s a tiny little thing, but, […]

Stricken City / Screaming Lights

January 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

It’s always a pleasant evening when you can attend a free show by a band you’ve liked but never seen (Stricken City) and get introduced to an interesting new band (Screaming Lights) in the process. Stricken City’s single Tak o Tak was one of my faves of ’08, so I was quite chuffed to finally […]

Thao visits KEXP

June 5th, 2008 · Comments Off on Thao visits KEXP

“Just as we were about to go live on the air, Thao Nguyen and the three guys in her band The Get Down Stay Down started swearing. They ran through all the words you can’t say on the radio, some of which would make a longshoreman blush. It turns out that this was strategic — […]

Jens can’t fake it

June 1st, 2008 · Comments Off on Jens can’t fake it

I saw Jens Lekman a few months back. Only about 6 months after this amazing show and while I enjoyed both shows, the latter was definitely lacking in that certain joie de vivre that can make or break any performance. So much so that I didn’t even post about it. Turns out even Jens wasn’t […]

Ween, Live @ House of Blues, N. Myrtle Beach, SC (1/26/08)

February 19th, 2008 · 14 Comments

Unless you’re some Peter Pan-like freak, the bands you loved as a kid, hopefully, aren’t the artists you adore today that is, after pimples, after trigonometry and most certainly post your “first time.” Granted, life – and to a certain extant, music itself – was a helluva lot simpler then. You liked what you liked […]

Jens Lekman, Black Cat D.C., Oct 25

October 29th, 2007 · Comments Off on Jens Lekman, Black Cat D.C., Oct 25

Sidewise video? It’s worth it, trust me. 400+ Calvin Johnson’s can’t be wrong as they fill in for the “sample” at the end of “Pocketful of Money.” If you have the opportunity to catch Jens on this tour, I highly recommend it. In fact, it was by far the best show I’ve seen in years. […]
