Story of the Year once again outdid themselves and played an exceptional show.
Written by Kaylen Hoffman Friday, 18 April 2008 10:14Her voice is sexy and husky, full of low and high notes. I could listen to her all night.
Thursday, 17 April 2008 06:11As the night wore on, the crowd was treated to deadpan commentary worthy of Arrested Development.

Mixing and blending influences you can get a glimpse of the world music rhythms and flow of Paul Simon, song craft from The Beatles, vocal and acoustic guitar nuances from James Taylor, jazz guitar improvisation like Pat Metheny, and extremely slick lead guitar playing in the style of Larry Carlton. I can't believe he hasn't caught on more nationally on a large scale level.

When the band took the stage at The Pageant to the delight of a full house of clearly die-hard fans, my first and most dominant impression was the absolutely mad guitar skills of both Bayliss and Jake Cinninger.

While their music draws heavily from influences of many generations ago, their sound is extremely refreshing, especially given the boring, uninspired state of mainstream music and the growing homogenization of "indie" rock.

When I saw my straight-laced friend crowd-surfing moments after the Black Lips took stage, I knew this was an atypical show.

The Junkies, heavily due to Margo's voice, are able to change a song drastically from its original version, while managing to keep the integrity of it.
Sunday, 30 March 2008 07:26Guitarist Chris Thorn and bassist Brad Smith were asked to produce Texas singer-songwriter Travis Warren’s demo tracks a few years ago, and discovered that not only was he a diehard Blind Melon fan who know almost every song’s lyric by heart, his voice was almost chill-inducingly identical to Hoon’s.

Jose Gonzalez creates a perfect harmony between his music and the nature that he writes about.

The dramatic entrance followed after a few direful verses as they immediately broke into "Famous for Nothing," the first track of their latest full length.

"Styles...I have many/My flows are like candy/And my beats are Good And Plenty/So eat it up/It's on me"

The four members of the band sync so well together there is no distinction between what they sound like in the studio and how they play live.

With the Hives, the embracing of rock n' roll's sorely neglected, gloriously over-the-top past is the whole point, a sort of reminder of why you started liking the stuff in the first place.

Of course, this wouldn't be an Ace Frehley show without some of the traditional old-school touches that helped make him famous.
Written by Jaffa Aharonov Saturday, 23 February 2008 09:39The Hackensaw Boys play bluegrass music fervently. Their sound is authentic, and unlike some bands desperately striving for that Americana sound, they pull it off effortlessly.

This was a particularly galling example of poor turnout, considering that The Whigs have been popping up favorably in all kinds of national press and played recent stellar sets on Conan and Letterman.

Lotus had done a stellar job of warming us up, but I'm sure any member of Sound Tribe's ever-multiplying fan base will agree that nothing, really, prepares you for your first of their live shows.

I fully intended on watching my first Daniel Johnston show without documenting everything.

Guitarist John Dawson spasmed as he weaved a dialogue of reverb-laden chords while front man Dan Burton supported his patiently poetic voice with organ throbs.

Matchbox Twenty poured their soul into the love affair of their new album, potent emotion apparent in every moment, real and raw.
Written by Amy Burger Wednesday, 06 February 2008 12:49All the girls down in front of the stage were swooning throughout the night as G. would graze their hands or throw them a wink.

The stunning nineteen perfectly-played songs crammed into just 50 minutes amounted to one of the greatest concerts I have ever witnessed in my life...and then it all turned to shit.

As the orchestra ennobled the jingles that play as we maim, kill, fly and run through imaginary universes, the crowd erupted, time and again.

The wait for The Walkmen was much like the White Rabbits' set: short and sweet, with a lot of noise.

Highlights of the show included imagining a duet between falsetto pimp Ryan Jordan and Barry White.

It was an odd lineup at best, with the heaviest of the bands opening the show and the sound getting poppier throughout the night.

The energy in The Pageant was indescribable—the frenzy of a thousand fans who had waited since 1985 to hear these songs performed.

You see, Andrew's a singer-songwriter in his own right, and a damn fine one at that. What he lacks in stage presence and banter will come with experience; what he's got in song composition and delivery can't be learned as readily.
Written by Laura Hamlett Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:23On some of the tracks, particularly the slower ones, the guitar work was shrouded and restrained; at times like these, the band truly excelled, its power visible but in check, just under the surface.
Written by Jason Green Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:14
The band did little to rein in its musical explorations, but the extended jams felt more focused, and would often stop on a dime. A run through the hit single "Float On" was endearingly sloppy, yet the band still felt in total control throughout.

Of Montreal's exaggerated attire and stage presence perfectly represents the wackiest parts of Prince and David Bowie.
Written by Ryan Parker Sunday, 25 November 2007 11:17Often when you see a classic rock artist performing their songs you get more of a nostalgic trip down memory lane. When Hagar performs his classic tunes, he insists his songs are as relevant today as they were thirty years ago.
Written by Kaylen Hoffman Wednesday, 21 November 2007 09:35Spektor plays with her voice much more in concert than on her records, and tonight she scats, screeches, growls, meows, hoots, and hollers throughout the show.
