Yacht | 05.10.07

| Print |

Written by Joseph O'Fallon Monday, 18 June 2007 13:23

live_yachtSuperfun usually offers a hilarious cover, Weezer's "Beverly Hills" or The Misfits' "Where Eagles Dare," but due to laptop difficulties, Enrique Iglesias's "Do You Know the Ping-Pong Song?" was botched.






Electrelane | 06.07.07

| Print |

Written by Joseph O'Fallon Monday, 18 June 2007 12:57

live_electrelaneI pride myself on getting set lists, but for Electrelane I left with a very incomplete one, filled with hopeless notes of "incessant piano," "hypnotic keyboard," "circular melodies," "frequent guitar-solos," and tidbits of Verity Susman's soft-spoken British accent.






Bobby Bare Jr. | 06.11.07

live_bbarejrBobby Bare Jr. is like a coffee table with one short leg. He's completely unstable and he rocks.

langHere is an artist who makes Mom smile warmly and say, "Look honey, now we have something in common. I already bought your ticket."






Fergie | 06.11.07

Written by Amy Burger Friday, 15 June 2007 12:14

fergie2Fergie did a full-on, booty-shakin' performance of Black Eyed Peas hit "My Humps," but gave the rest of the Peas songs the lame, quickie-medley treatment, teasing the audience just enough to get them cheering, then moving on.







Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals | 06.10.07

| Print |

Written by Amy Burger Friday, 15 June 2007 01:46

live_harperHarper's gifts are many. He's an incredible, soulful singer and a highly accomplished guitarist with a unique ability to engage his audience with both hard-driving, guitar-wailing rock 'n' roll songs and quiet, thoughtful acoustic ballads.






Tea Leaf Green | 06.07.07

| Print |

Written by John Shepherd Monday, 11 June 2007 03:18

live_tealeafNoodling this music may be, but it does require the mastery of an instrument and, more importantly, the ability to listen closely to other players and sync with them.






Night Ranger | 05.27.07

| Print |

Written by Derek Lauer Wednesday, 06 June 2007 03:28

live_nightrangerThe main thing to note is that Night Ranger is a pop vocal group backed by good musicianship, and every one of them can sing fantastic while playing guitar.






Rik Emmett | 05.27.07

Written by Derek Lauer Wednesday, 06 June 2007 03:20

live_emmettOne great thing about seeing seasoned musicians like Emmett is their ability to entertain in spite of the situation.






Dave Brubeck Quartet | 06.03.07

| Print |

Written by Derek Lauer Wednesday, 06 June 2007 03:13

live_brubeckThe setting gave me a sense that I was there to be educated as much as entertained, sort of like watching a performance of your college professors.






Cursive | 05.29.07

| Print |

Written by Mandy Jordan Monday, 04 June 2007 14:43

live_cursiveThey moved forward with "Dorothy at Forty," one of my favorite tracks from their most recent release, 2006's Happy Hollow, the lyrics precise and exact: "Dreams are all you have/ dreams have held you back/ dreamers never live/ only dream of it..."






Brian Capps and the True Liars | 06.02.07

| Print |

Written by Kevin Renick Monday, 04 June 2007 14:28

live_cappsOne highlight was Capps' signature cover of "Walk the Line," which fans of his shows are certainly familiar with. But this time, upon completing the song, Capps exclaimed, "Okay, now let's turn the record over," and he imitated the sound of a scratchy 45 ending.






The Arcade Fire | 05.20.07

| Print |

Written by Kaylen Hoffman Saturday, 02 June 2007 06:02

live_arcadeTheir music reminded me of a hot, steamy summer's night in an urban jungle, where the Sharks and Jets are about to rumble through the New York City streets.






Brandi Carlile | 05.22.07

| Print |

Written by Brian Kenney Wednesday, 30 May 2007 08:31

live_carlileThe singer/songwriter brought down the house with hyperkinetic versions of "Closer to You" and "My Song," prompting Carlile to quip, "I always forget when I come to this part of the country and get up here and start stomping around that the air is thin and all."






Honda Civic Tour 2007 | 05.18.07

| Print |

Written by Katie Herring Wednesday, 30 May 2007 08:24

live_hondaThere were some funny parts in their set, though, especially when Hoppus pointed out that there was a woman in front doing sign language for anyone who was deaf. He proceeded to say, "Mark Hoppus is the sexiest man alive. He is super awesome...and I bet he is a great kisser."






Kings of Leon | 5.24.07

| Print |

Written by Dave Jasmon Wednesday, 30 May 2007 08:18

live_kolIt's cool to see such a talented young band who could just as easily have churned out another Aha Shake Heartbreak challenging themselves musically, trying something new, and succeeding.







Two Cow Garage & Grand Champeen | 05.19.07

| Print |

Written by Brad Proctor Thursday, 24 May 2007 03:22

live_2cowWhile still ear-splittingly loud, and while sharing a similar punk-rock ethos, Two Cow Garage's set had more space in it than Grand Champeen's, both between songs, as they frequently paused to drink or relight their cigarettes, and within them, as they backed off just enough to let daylight into the lyrics.






Morrissey | 05.22.07

| Print |

Written by Jason Green Thursday, 24 May 2007 03:11

moz5aMoz uttered one line ("I've come to wish me an unhappy birthday"), causing the crowd to fall silent and giving the band—high contrast in bleach-white shirts and pants and black bow ties—the chance to explode out of the gate with a savage take on the Smiths' classic "The Queen Is Dead."




Black Rebel Motorcycle Club | 5.20.07

| Print |

Written by Dave Jasmon Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:20

live_brmcMaybe it was the frequent backlighting, silhouetting the band and shifting attention toward the audience, but everyone in the building seemed to know the answer when Hayes sang "Whatever Happened to My Rock 'n' Roll (Punk Song)"—it's here for the taking.






Minus the Bear | 5.14.07

| Print |

Written by Kaylen Hoffman Monday, 21 May 2007 10:28

live_minusbearI guess it's been awhile since I've been to a "scene" show. But, really, since when is Minus the Bear "scene?"






The Rapture | 05.10.07

| Print |

Written by Joe O'Fallon Monday, 21 May 2007 10:16

live_rapture_smWith a car and a bridge, crossing the river was simple. We played Twenty Questions on the way there and The Name Game coming back home.






Andrew Benon | 05.11.2007

| Print |

Written by Amanda Pelle Monday, 14 May 2007 08:02

live_benonThe introduction of this musical personage was a coalition of suave arrogance and glam Hollywood, as though he had stepped out of a limousine and onto the red carpet.
