I feel Dan's pain! As a huge fan of alt-country, Americana, and all it's various sub-sub genres the Mumford and Son's, Lumineers wave has been a trainwreck. Still, O' Death is badass! Been rocking out to them for years now! Thanks for covering this show.
WOO! can't wait to check out show tonight !!
Yeah, unfortunately the show was for us a drag also. We work for a living so having to wait around an hour longer after the first two bands were done and then the Cat Power sound check was a bit exhausting. And the focus on stage once they came out kind of reminded me of the last B.B. King concert i attended . But shelling out $32 bucks for the Rialto is kind of ridiculous anyways given the terrible acoustics. Seems it was only two or three years ago shows were 10-12 bucks. $16 for something special. And that $1 extra for the Rialto renovation fund, wheres that going? Haven't they paid for the new signage already?
i wish i had read this Cat Power article before shelling out money to see her. Actually, I didn't see her. After waiting for an hour for her to show up to her own concert, i got my money back and left. My wife stayed with our son. She said it was sad because Chan looked and sound strung out and kept misplaying. My wife finally walked out. Won't be spending money to support her drug/alcohol/mental illness, hope she gets every other suckers' money to pay for admittance to rehab/mental health facility.
i hope head over heart gets better equipment or something. i wanted to like them but they sounded pretty horrible.
the opening guy, jessssssssssss, was pretty good. i would have been okay with watching him for the hour instead of listening to craptastic 70's rock classics.
Love the use of B+B titles- nice work!
Good for you, Rat T. I'll try to find room in next week's issue for the gripping story "Editor caught in grammatical error fiasco!"
Grammatically, a while is a noun phrase in which "a" is an article and "while" functions as a noun meaning "a short period of time"
Down the Drain: To be fair, "the FUCKING editor of Tucson Weekly" has years of experience writing about music, so it's not that weird. Kind of made my living doing this sort of thing for awhile, actually.
Oh, and do the Spice Girls count?
The Belgian band Bene Gesserit is another
Well, there's the German band Dune, for one ; )
Where is Steve? I mean, really, why is the fucking EDITOR of Tucson Weekly writing the soundbites column?
Nice placement Mr Siegel! Cheers
KXCI is 91.3, ladies and gentlemen, not 92.1 as you say in the Sonic Solstice blurb! I can't think of many people who would actually be confused by that error, but it's still wrong
The bus came by and he got on. Mike, I'll miss you
I'd just like to add one event coming up this Sunday, Sept 29. Tribute to Michael Begala at Valley of the Moon, form 1 to 8, featuring 4 bands he played with here in Tucson: Linda Lou and the Desert Drifters, Wayback Machine, and Top Dead Center, plus members of West River Band. Bring a cooler and chair, or you'll be able to get refreshments there.
I knew Michael off and on for many years, and saw him play in various different bands over those years and was always amazed by his guitar playing. He put something into it that few are able to do. He was also such a gentle and kind man. I remember talking to him at a show at the Rialto not too long ago, and he told me he remembered the guitar and the amp I was playing at a gig I had done and that he had attended many years before (at the Route 66 Bar, of all places). He had that much attention to detail, and he was one of the most generous and nicest people I've ever know. He will be missed by so many in the Tucson music community, for he was genuine, a true gentleman and a very special spirit.
R.I.P Michael, we loved you, man.
Randy was right when he said... some people could play Jerry's notes... Mike could play his MUSIC. RIP
Filter is technically a two-hit wonder. Take a Picture, with its annoying refrain of "There goes my aeroplane", was actually a bigger hit than Hey Man, Nice Shot.
