WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Billy Joe Shaver

Even the Outlaw Country community considers Billy Joe Shaver to be an outlaw. The Texas native learned to play guitar at 11 and dropped out of school in the eighth grade to pick cotton but returned sporadically to play sports. After a Navy hitch, Shaver married Brenda Tindell in 1960; she divorced him six years later when he pursued a songwriting career (they subsequently remarried, divorced and remarried).

Will Kimbrough is one of those multi-talented artists that nearly anyone could build a band around, a diverse musician who has devoted his life to his craft since an early age.   

Braid with Pity Sex and Signals Midwest

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

Somehow, it seems we’ve ripped the pages out of 21 calendars since Braid roared out of Champaign, Ill., with a Post Punk/Emo sound that deftly combined dissonance and melodicism, thundering heaviness and lightning heat, stuttering time signatures and straightforward riffage.   

Patrick Sweany

If fame and fortune were merely by-products of well-placed connections, Blues guitarist Patrick Sweany would have a kidney-shaped pool filled with Dom Pérignon and he’d be ducking the paparazzi every time he walked out the front door.  

’Q are You?

Terry Adams keeps NRBQ going strong

In the early 1990s, while working at The Denver Post, I did a preview of an NRBQ concert and referenced that the eclectic, rousingly good-natured Rock band had been at it for four decades now.  

The Devil is in the Details

Incisive Metal outfit Agalloch focuses on making the most of the little things

As the music recording business continues to shrink, the music merchandising business continues to grow. In the last few years, one of the most unusual burgeoning merch trends has been bands attaching themselves to alcoholic beverages.   

Reel to ‘Real’

Cincy Funk master Freekbass channels his inner Pop child on new album, Everybody’s Feelin’ Real

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 10, 2014
There is a very particular bit of artist-centric evidence that determines the ostensible success of an album. Everybody’s Feelin’ Real, the new release from Cincinnati Funktronica legend Freekbass, is packed like a Kardashian’s overstuffed suitcase with that specific proof.   

Reputante with Poliça

Monday • Southgate House Revival

A little mystery never hurt anyone. In Reputante’s case, the members of the young Brooklyn-based Electro Rock group seem to actively refrain from releasing too many details about themselves.  

Blitzen Trapper with The Parkington Sisters

Monday • Southgate House Revival

“Feel the Chill,” the first song on Blitzen Trapper’s latest, 2013’s succinctly titled VII, finds the Portland, Ore., outfit in new territory — it sounds like Kid Rock doing Mellow Gold-era Beck covers, its funky beats, harmonica flourishes and Southern-fried guitar lines almost enough to inspire dance-floor movement.  

Royal Southern Brotherhood with The Dallas Moore Band

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Supergroups are problematic in that egos and talent levels tend to cancel each other out, and musical combinations that sound good in theory often implode in the execution phase. The other musical construct that can be fraught with its own particular series of pitfalls is the musician-carrying-on-the-family-name scenario. Royal Southern Brotherhood would seem to be flying in the face of a boatload of potential negatives as their lineup reflects both  situations.
