Tweet On April 8, 2016, the House of Blues in New Orleans will host a tribute to Allen Toussaint, who passed away on November 10, 2015. The impact that Toussaint had on music of all genres, both in the New Orleans area and beyond, is virtually indescribable, with his original music covered by Glen Campbell […]
Tweet Exhausted by the blues! But in a most pleasant way. Following Cedric Burnside’s recent show at d.b.a., here comes Lightnin’ Malcolm, playing with the grandson, Cameron Kimbrough, of yet another blues legend! This time we firmly planted our soon-to-be-dancing asses close to the stage and dared to approach ISO 10000 to nail a few shots before the […]
Tweet Sebastian Weston recently brought his mellow, funky sound to Ogden After Hours. Backed by a thumb-slappin’ bass, rasta-tinged drums and keyboards, his music “challenged” us to alternatively dance or grab another cold Restoration Ale and chill. Check him out.
Tweet So we did “accidentally” catch some great music while hiding in Grayton Beach. The Heritage Band is a reggae band based in Destin, FL and we saw their nearly 4 (!) hour show at the Red Bar. Great energy and definitely a band to check out live.
Tweet St. Andrew’s Festival @ Bacchanal featured Debauche, a Russian Mafia Band who are purveyors of “Russian Hooligan Songs”. We want more! Never has ISO 8000 been more necessary, since the band was essentially lit with Christmas lights. Check it out: and check out their website and visit their Facebook page.
Tweet Mirliton Festival featured, in addition to some rocking’ food (dig those mirlton fries, which we made for Thanksgiving!), R. Scully’s Rough 7, with Rob Cambre on lead guitar, Ryan Scully on lead vocals and rythym guitar, CJ Floyd on bass, Mike Andrepont on drums, Ratty Scurvics on keys, and Meschiya Lake/Erika Lewis on vocals, […]
Tweet Simon Berz (circuit bending and percussion madness) and Dave Easley (pedal steel guitar) carry on the collaboration between Berz and Koenig that turned junk from the streets of New Orleans into music. The performance at Zeitgeist was spectacular and we managed to snap a few shots (damn that loud shutter on the D700) when […]
Tweet Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm are also known as the two man wreckin’ krewe and the nickname is true, in the same sense that R. L. Burnside was a one man wreckin’ krewe. R. L. Burnside cranked out high energy, skull-splitting blues that crossed genres…for example, don’t hesitate to check out A Ass Pocket […]
Tweet It’s hard to say much that’s new about Die Antwoord–they haven’t actually been around that long and yet, when you see them, it’s refreshing in the same way that the Ramones or the Sex Pistols were when they burst onto the scene. Die Antwoord are hip hop with attitude, yet with a smart, tongue-in-cheek […]
