Sound Advice: Ivan & Alyosha with Plastic Ants

Monday • MOTR Pub

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 23, 2015
For the uninitiated, Ivan & Alyosha falls into the same nomenclature category as Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd — there are no Jethros, Floyds, Ivans or Alyoshas among their ranks. Ivan & Alyosha was initially comprised of vocalists/guitarists Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary, who gravitated from working in a variety of musical relationships to forming an exclusive duo in 2007.

Sound Advice: Death Cab for Cutie with Twin Shadow

Friday • PNC Pavilion at Riverbend

My three favorite band names inspired by unlikely sources would be: a) Steely Dan, after the chrome-plated dildo in William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch; b) Toad the Wet Sprocket, a band name concocted by Monty Python for one of its sketches; and c) Death Cab for Cutie, taken from a song by the critically underappreciated (in the U.S., at least) Bonzo Dog Band from its 1967 debut album, Gorilla.

Boogie Woogie/Swamp Rock piano pounder Marcia Ball is the poster child for the phrase “born to the craft.”

For anyone who would doubt the legitimacy of The Damned’s place in Punk history, the group’s early credentials speak for themselves.

Barrence Whitfield & the Savages have had more lives than a Buddhist cat. They recorded two brilliant albums in the early ’80s, broke up in 1986 and reunited in 2010, resulting in three exceptional albums — 2011’s Savage Kings (on Cincinnati’s Shake It label), 2013’s acclaimed Dig Thy Savage Soul and their latest, Under the Savage Sky (both on Bloodshot Records).
