WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Hey Marseilles

June 25 • Southgate House Revival

Call it Chamber Pop, Baroque Rock, Orchestral Rock (as many have) or whatever, but the characteristics are thoughtfully introspective lyrics, naturalistic vocals, sumptuous melodies and arrangements featuring string sections, brass and exotic coloration from resonant acoustic instruments.    

Father John Misty

June 11 • 20th Century Theatre

 Josh Tillman is a funny, hyper-articulate guy with an absurdist streak that makes itself readily apparent in interviews and between-song live-show banter.  

Patterson Hood & The Downtown Rumblers

June 9 • Southgate House Revival

Patterson Hood, one of the most prolific and literate rockers of the last decade, rolls into Newport next week with his eclectic solo band, The Downtown Rumblers.  

Jon Dee Graham

April 23 • Southgate House Revival

Like former bandmate Alejandro Escovedo, Jon Dee Graham has also developed another side, another strength, in the eight solo albums he’s been releasing since 1997’s Escape From Monster Island. He’s a forcefully evocative singer/songwriter whose deeply gruff, soulful voice is reminiscent of Tom Waits.   

Ryan Bingham

March 27 • Taft Theatre

As the old adage says, “preparation meets opportunity” is often the path to success in the music world. However, a little luck doesn’t hurt, either. When you talk about the career of Ryan Bingham, all of the above is true.     

Chevelle

March 18 • Bogart's

When people of a certain age hear the name Chevelle, they typically think of Chevrolet’s high performance sports coupe from the ’70s. Oddly enough, the brothers Loeffler had the same thought when naming their band in 1995; the Chevelle was their father’s favorite car.    

Left Lane Cruiser

Jan. 25 • MOTR Pub

Left Land Cruiser's output is brutish, noisy and deep-fried in so much muck and raw distortion that you'll want to take a half-hour shower after a few YouTube listens.   

Stephane Wrembel

Jan. 19 • Blue Wisp Jazz Club

Sometimes it only takes a well-placed reference to bump an artist up to the next level. French-born guitarist Stephane Wrembel was already enjoying an acclaimed career when director Woody Allen tapped him to score the theme of his 2011 Academy Award-winning film Midnight in Paris, which he performed live to the millions who tuned into the ceremony’s telecast.   

The Duke of Uke & His Novelty Orchestra

Jan. 4 • MOTR Pub

 In the case of the effervescent seven-piece, The Duke of Uke & His Novelty Orchestra, their inclusion of “bacon” as an inspiration on their Facebook page — alongside the more conventional choices of Motown, Funk, Ragtime, Jazz, Rock and “Popssical” — is telling for multiple reasons.   

The Guitars

Dec. 25 • MOTR Pub

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Most people have some sort of plans for this Tuesday. But for those who don’t celebrate Christmas — and, especially, for those who need a family-gathering escape hatch — MOTR Pub and The Guitars have an easy (and free!) out.
