Field Tripp Archive

  • As I said earlier this month, the choices here are my favorites–I’m not saying they are the best, they may or may not be. I determined that Field Tripp was my favorite live band of 2014 for one simple reason, I am pretty sure I purposefully saw them more than an any other band last year. It was as though if I saw Field Tripp on the bill something clicked in my brain and I immediately planned to attend that gig. I also saw Field Tripp more times in the last year than I saw them in all previous years...

  • I’ve been checking into a lot of Field Tripp shows lately and lead main man Dan Tripp has taken his baby in a whole new direction these days–it’s a great direction that far surpasses his previous efforts. It’s an interesting thing I’ve noticed about Tripp lately, anytime he adds his essence to a project it becomes monumentally better. I guess I’m a fan of the man and the band. Recently, I witnessed him perform a searing set of Misfits covers at Rogue Bar that was both spot on and unrelenting–it was supposed to be a set of Talking Heads covers,...

  • The first time I ever saw The Madera Strand they played and entire set of Police covers for a Cover The Crescent event, since that time I have watched them grow into their own, memorized their first EP and they have subconsciously become one of my favorite bands to catch live. I say subconsciously, because it snuck up on me and I didn’t notice it until one night I was on the fence about a show when I found out The Madera Strand was playing and that clinched it. This month they release the three song EP Dam Failure which...

  • Well, this is a jam packed weekend kids, no doubt about it. There is so much action going on its unbelievable and I’m not just talking about what will be happening in peoples pants, rather, what will be happening at venues across the valley. The kicker for me is that my beloved Jeepster is in the garage and I will be damn lucky if I surface at all this weekend. Thus I encourage everyone to make the most of this incredible list of shows that I will most probably miss. Although, I must admit when I see a lineup like...

  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...
