Rejoice! A Full Show Sturgill Simpson Video Playlist From Houston

Posted on May 13th, 2016 by steve

What I love about music: I’ve probably cycled through about five or six Album Of The Year choices since January. But Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth just might end up sticking. After a few late night talk show and other promotional appearances where he brought a horn section (featured prominently on the album) to […]

VIDEO | Hydrofoil @ Permanent Records – RSD 2016

Posted on May 12th, 2016 by steve

This a new band for me, and a little research shows it’s a relatively new band period.  But I like what I’m hearing, and felt that these two videos were more than worthy of a post. We recently shared video captured by seijinlee of Ryley Walker and Charles Rumback’s Record Store Day performance.  It turns out they weren’t the […]

VIDEO | Ryley Walker & Charles Rumback @ Permanent Records – RSD 2016

Posted on May 6th, 2016 by steve

The guitar/drums duo is a format that is finding all sorts of interesting permutations.  Chicago has bred a pair of fine practitioners in Ryley Walker and Charles Rumback.  Walker’s acoustic, and the sounds that he coaxes out of it, set these guys apart —  briliant, exploratory, conversational jams with just two instruments. Here’s the duo at Chicago’s Permanent […]

VIDEO | Causa Sui @ Jazzhouse Copenhagen 4/29/16

Posted on May 5th, 2016 by steve

Maybe if we all get together, close our eyes, join hands, and think really hard about it, Causa Sui will realize that there’s an audience in the States for their psych-jazz-jam music. Until then, here’s a video from an appearance in Copenhagen.  The venue is called Jazzhouse and, like their recent record, the band is […]

Review / Video / Setlist | White Denim @ Thalia Hall 4/30/16

Posted on May 4th, 2016 by alex

By: Alex Wood I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t skeptical going in to White Denim’s Thalia Hall show on Saturday. My last two White Denim shows, during their 2014 tour, both took place in venues in the 200 and 500 capacity range. This, combined with the band’s new lineup, gives reason for a longtime fan to […]

Setlist / Video | Avett Brothers @ Chicago Theater 4/21/16

Posted on April 22nd, 2016 by steve

We’ll have much more on tonight’s show when we’ll have a reporter in attendance, but news from The Avett’s Chicago run opener was too good not to share. The band ran through a 25 song set, paying tribute to Merle Haggard early in the set, and tipping their hat to Prince during an emotional “Pretty Girl […]

Smashing Pumpkins welcomed original guitarist James Iha to the stage for a mini Siamese Dream set and an encore take on The Rolling Stones’ Angie.  It was Iha’s third appearance with the band after a pair of LA shows in late March. His appearance was just one highlight inside a super-sized show that featured David […]

VIDEO | White Denim Covers Steely Dan’s “Peg” With Sam Cohen In Seattle

Posted on April 8th, 2016 by steve

One thing that was notably left out of the routinely mind-blowing, pre-2016 live sets by White Denim: covers. Suspiciously, in the run up to the recently released Stiff (see our review here), the newly configured band started dropping cover songs via Soundcloud — and meaty stuff, too: Zeppelin, Traffic and Mickey Newbury (via Kenny Rogers). And […]
