bloc0307Bloc Party always puts on a tremendous live show with infinite and frenetic energy, but the material at times could be better.

sniderDespite his obvious disdain for the loud, boorish conversations that persisted through the entire show, Snyder carried himself professionally, playing for over an hour and a half and doing an encore—though it was short and perfunctory.

Dr. Dog | 3.08.07

Written by Dave Jasmon Monday, 26 March 2007 07:43

It's apparent that they are competent, inventive, and inspiring as both studio and performance artists.

 

   

MC Lars | 03.04.07

Written by Janelle Greenwood Monday, 26 March 2007 07:42

With the new age of kids permanently plugged into some type of electronic device that delivers both conversation and music, MC Lars understands where technology and music converge.

 

 

The Thermals | 03.02.07

| Print |

Written by Leslie Wilson Monday, 26 March 2007 07:39

While the Thermals seemed fairly shocked to be receiving such an enthusiastic response from the D.C. crowd, it was no mystery to those present.

 

   

The Lemonheads | 02.15.07

Written by Jason Green Monday, 26 March 2007 07:37

Dando, looking hobo-chic in a hoody, ratty vintage military-style jacket, and stocking cap pulled down over his eyes, seemed hesitant until a few songs in, when he asked for some help from the sound guy, saying, "I can't hear myself sing up here."

 

 

Owen | 3.20.07

Written by Geoff Koch Monday, 26 March 2007 07:33

When he's playing, Kinsella is an expert at communicating his songs. When the music stopped, the distractions he invited ultimately led to an uneven show.

 

   

Richard Buckner | 03.02.07

| Print |

Written by Kaylen Hoffman Monday, 12 March 2007 02:15

Buckner takes the stage, sitting very, very stage left. He reminds me of an old, wrinkly bunny rabbit, with his long, grey hair and beard and almost-always squinty eyes. But as soon as he opens his mouth to sing, I decide I have no more room to talk; this man is amazing.

 

 

Yonder Mountain String Band | 02.24.07

Written by Dave Jasmon Monday, 26 February 2007 13:18

ymsbOn the last legs of their Cabin Fever tour, the "we don't need no stinkin' percussion" quartet brought a mix of old, new, and borrowed bluegrass to a sticky, smoky (and sometimes both) Pageant.

 

   

Ladyfinger (NE) | 02.18.07

Written by David Lichius Saturday, 24 February 2007 09:31

In my life, I cannot remember seeing that many moms and dads at one show. One mother spent her time inside the Creepy head in hand, in slumber.

"You've just discovered some bluegrass truth, folks: If something exists, it's lonesome."

 

   

The Rapture | 02.06.07

Written by P. David Hazel Wednesday, 14 February 2007 11:00

Through the lens of a snow gnome, the lower energy level was appropriate for a snowy Tuesday evening in the Midwest.

 

 

Blue October | 02.09.07

| Print |

Written by Garin Pirnia Tuesday, 13 February 2007 03:26

It makes sense Blue October has such a diverse fan base, as their music ranges from the alt-rock sensibilities of "Razor Blade," to lovely confessional ballads like "Blue Sunshine," to melodic pop like "Calling You," to the techno of "X Amount of Words."

 

   

Permanent Me | 01.10.07

Written by Brandon Wann Tuesday, 06 February 2007 14:58

Lead singer Brian's perfectly styled blonde hair and pretty-boy face may have garnered the attention of countless 15-year-old girls in attendance, but his near-perfect vocals and the entire band's excellent stage presence definitely helped build a place in their memory to take Daddy's debit card to the nearest record store.

 

 

Camera Obscura | 02.03.07

Written by Garin Pirnia Tuesday, 06 February 2007 14:44

cameraTheir music wavers between '60s pop, waltz, and the Sundays-drenched melodies. Their influences are as diverse as the alt-country proclivities of M Ward to '50s icons Connie Francis and Elvis.

 

   

Augustana | 01.26.07

Written by Jim Campbell Sunday, 28 January 2007 10:48

I know this band has talent and potential, but on this night, they let me down. The only thing that gave me comfort was that Vega4 is now on my radar.

 

 

Lapush & Jonathan Cour | 01.04.07

Written by Jeff York Monday, 22 January 2007 13:50

As for Jonathan Cour, I have two words about him and his band: Radio. Ready.

 

   

Red Hot Chili Peppers | 01.15.07

| Print |

Written by Brad Proctor Monday, 22 January 2007 13:38

Their well-known hits—particularly "Californication," "Other Side," and "Give It Away"—were very enthusiastically received, and most of the crowd would have gladly stayed for more at the end of the night.

 

 

The Deftones | 12.15.06

Written by Dylan Kuehn Saturday, 30 December 2006 04:46

def2Closing song "Seven Words," one of the band's first hits, left the crowd wanting more.

 

 

 

   

The Black Keys | 12.02.06

| Print |

Written by Dave Jasmon Saturday, 30 December 2006 04:23

Auerbach's grasping, grainy voice is the stuff that spans generations, and its appeal was never more apparent than on the "Just Got to Be" chorus.

 

 

 

Zappa Plays Zappa | 12.14.06

Written by Derek Lauer Friday, 22 December 2006 10:43

zappaZappa's music is like an orchestral flashback. There are twists and turns and a whole spectrum of textures. The musicianship required to perform these pieces so seamlessly is astounding.
