  • Alright, there is at least one great show every night here for the next six nights in a row and that’s what this is all about. I actually meant to include Tuesday night because there was a killer show at the Yucca with my faves Twin Ponies and Celebration Guns, but yesterdays article took too long to write and I really should have had my shit together on Sunday, but I didn’t. Nevertheless, here are the gorgeous details of all that’s going down in this town over the next six nights. There may well be more going on than this,...

  • 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...

  • It came with some surprise last month when I heard during the same evening that one of my favorite emerging groups, All My Friends, would be systematically releasing their second record and subsequently breaking up…possibly in the same night. I was dashed, mostly because I had just watch them slay everyone else in the lineup that evening and was truly glad I had brought spare jeans. Mostly, though I was dashed because I knew they had spent countless hours, days, weeks recording their new release and they appeared to be at the top of their game and gaining some ground....

  • “Honestly speaking, I’m thinking of drinking again, not like before, but more like a gentleman,” begins the debut, eponymously titled EP from Sundressed. It is a great start to a great EP, that plays like an indie rock confessional romp through a genre bending sextet who describes themselves as “happy sad indie folk rock.” The description of which does not fall short of the mark—as much uplifting pop awareness as, emotional or intellectual consternation, Sundressed puts on a pretty amazing set of songs here. Beyond “That Same Wishing Well,” the follow up track, “Golden Boy” invites female vocal accompaniment that...
