Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

They need to advertise more. Promote the music scene like Monterrey Court does. The fish fry there is one of the best, if not the best , in town. Yet so few people know about it.

Bang your own drum, louder. Contact all the media and let them know about what's happening at this great spot!

Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

I am a huge fan of the boondocks! I'd hate to see them go.

Re: “Miss O'Dell

I looked forward to this book. And then I read it. It's full of inaccuracies on the Rolling Stones 1972 tour. And what really is sad is Chris naming the rock stars she slept with. What's even more disingenuous is remarking that Bianca Jagger was frosty towards her when Bianca joined the tour for a few days in late June. Honey, you were BONKING her husband! You think she couldn't tell? Bianca's brilliant. I could have done without the Kiss n Tell, Miss O'Dell...

Re: “South By

I grew up in Tucson playing music then moved to and played music in Seattle, San Diego, LA, Phoenix, Austin and have now returned to Tucson. I've played SXSW over 11 times from each city I've lived in.

I don't think it's reasonable to say because it's called SXSW there should be more artists from the SW. You have to remember Austin is only 500 miles away from New Orleans. When you live in or travel to Austin it feels more southern than southwestern, but it's still in TX and I think most who haven't been there think of it as the SW. So the name SXSW is more of a play on perception of region.

You also have to remember this isn't the SXSW of 20 years ago. They have built this into a international event, with bands attending from around the world as well as the US. So 14 bands representing Tucson and Phoenix is actually a great representation. I'd rather see 10 or 14 good bands representing the state or region than 35 average bands. Quality over quantity. Now I'm sure there are 35 good bands in the region but again SXSW is a international event and there are only so many slots available. I think the beauty of the event is seeing a small sample of bands from all over the US and world.

Re: “Sands of Time: Giant Sand

Howe is a Tucson classic and a fine true artist.His music has meaning and is interesting to listen to. Totally original. And the lyrics do more than repeat themselves like so many successful music writers write. This says something about the people who listen to his music and about himself . More poetry than product. Thanks Howe.

Re: “Look Within and Grow: Las Cafeteras

So wait, why are we supposed to support a band that exhibits actions of "misogyny, silencing and suppressing the women in the band"?

Re: “Sands of Time: Giant Sand

To the Weekly--It was disappointing to see the in print cover stating, "Giant Sand--Quits".
I'd say, if anything, Howe Gelb and company are persevering. I'm sure this was an oversight, but please do try and have more thoughtful awareness about your use of language.

Re: “Sands of Time: Giant Sand

Sometimes someone who loves music and is determined to live his life doing the thing he loves has a 30 year career doing just that. What a joke.

Re: “Sands of Time: Giant Sand

Sometimes people with no real music talent fool everybody and catch on. Gelb is one of those.
What a joke.

Re: “Fully Developed: Lake Street Dive

Saw them at a festival. They got the crowd up and moving....for the exits.
Don't waste your $$$. They do the same tune over and over or at least it sounds that way.

Re: “Rainer Shine: Rainer Ptacek

I am very happy to see that people are sustaining the memory of Rainer. Back in the 80's I clandestinely recorded sets he played at Tony's Steak House. I loved his music. Then one evening Rainer was doing a solo set at The Temple of Music & Art. I worked up enough courage to ask him (this time openly) to record his music. He said sure. A couple of songs into the set you can hear Rainer say, "Hey I want to hear that tape at the break." He did and he liked the simple recording I had made, saying that it reminded him of the way early blues artists recordings sounded ... simple. My girlfriend at the time heard the tape and w/out seeing Rainer play bought every CD of his music available at the time. I guess she liked his music too.

Re: “Rainer Shine: Rainer Ptacek

Just superb. Any music lover in Tucson should have this in their collection, and what a great support vehicle. Take the time to lend an ear and give a hand.
