Thursday • MOTR Pub

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 09:27 am

Joe Casey is agitated. The frontman and chief word slinger for Detroit’s Protomartyr opens the quartet’s second full-length record, the stellar Under Color of Official Right, with this recurring statement: “There’s just a clack in the brain now.”

Friday • Northside Tavern

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 09:36 am

One of the finest bands to emerge from the Dayton, Ohio, music scene over the last 15 years, Lab Partners continue to carry on Gem City’s reputation as a hot-bed for Indie Rock. The band also has direct ties to some of the artists who helped bring international attention to the city’s music in the first place.

Papadosio with Peridoni and Random Rab

Saturday • Madison Theater

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 09:44 am

There is a fair amount of evidence that Jam/Psych bands are primarily interested in mindless noodling on a musical bridge to nowhere, Electronic bands are satisfied to “unce-unce-unce” on varying themes with no discernible point and Prog bands have a tendency to disappear up their own asses with Classical suites and Middle Earth imagery. Papadosio understands all of those stereotypical paradigms and assiduously avoids falling prey to any of them.

Noah Gundersen with Armon Jay

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 09:51 am

Given his raspy delivery, spare acoustic guitar accompaniment, erudite wordplay and numerous Tom Waits videos posted on his Tumblr page, it’s easy to draw a line between Seattle singer/songwriter Noah Gundersen and the world’s most famous boho troubadour. Too easy, perhaps. ...

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 11:30 am

I’m a huge fan of locally-produced commercials-gone-viral. Cincinnati’s Fick Chiropractic Centers current ad might not be up there with Jamie Casino, but it does feature a killer beat that deserves some attention. Is anyone else just tickled by the concept of a local doctor employing a...

Comments 1 · Apr 22, 2014 04:43 pm

The city’s cost of a long-planned piece of cycling infrastructure could more than double if City Council approves a motion Vice Mayor David Mann planned to introduce on April 23.  Mayor John Cranley successfully paused the Central Parkway Bikeway Project for public discourse in response...

Comments 0 · Apr 16, 2014 11:11 am

Even as the decades have passed and several members have moved in and out, Supersuckers remain committed to flippant, hooky, high-energy, underground-friendly Rock & Roll that heavily draws from Rockabilly, Garage Rock, Country and Punk. ...

Record-Breaking Record-Making Pace

Jack White makes, sets record, Prince makes deal with old foes and Wu-Tang cuts ties with penis cutter

Comments 0 · Apr 23, 2014 10:42 am

Jack White makes record-holding Swiss Polka trio look like slackers with "World's Fastest Released Record," Prince re-teams with the major label he once likened to slave owners and if you cut off your penis and jump off a balcony, don't go looking for sympathy from Wu-Tang Clan (especially if it might hurt their "brand")

Arlo Can You Go?

The self-titled debut from Arlo McKinley and the Lonesome Sound might have startled the songwriter more than it will his fans

Comments 1 · Apr 9, 2014 09:08 am

There’s an interesting paradigm in Folk/Americana singer/songwriter Arlo McKinley’s career. McKinley has only been on the scene since 2012; his alter ego, Tim Carr, was a back-of-the-stage fixture for many years. But when Carr moved into the spotlight to front his Arlo McKinley and the Lonesome Sound, he found it necessary to adopt a new persona to handle the increased attention. ...

Comments 0 · Mar 26, 2014 10:01 am

Michigan Funk band Vulfpeck experiments with Spotify's pay-out system, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus (aka Dave Brockie) really, actually, seriously did pass away and early Nirvana drummer Chad Channing is told he's going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his former band … then was told he wasn't.
