I was at this event and it was great :-) Campy fun from the Del Rubio Triplets and wonderful music from what became one of Portland's best bands. Thanks Thomas for both!!
I was a college friend of Steve's back in the late sixties at S.U. We shared some important moments that remain with me still. I lost touch and just found out he's gone. I wish now I'd taken the initiative to keep our friendship alive. Goodbye, Steve.
Beach Boys needed 50 years and the Beatles needed half a dozen and their songs were used by the mainstream till now and they've been gone for almost 50 years.....no comparison..............
The Beach Boys (Brian) puts more music in one drop than any of the Beatles ever did...
Thanks, Smithappens! I remember those days as well--in the Dark Ages before VCRs, seeing those old classics at the Temple of Music and Art was great.
Jim good article. Brings back memories of when my friends and i used to enjoy going to the gallagher. Or other venues that showed old classic movies. Art is important and in todays world its easy to forget that.
Been listening to both groups when they started both teriffic but Beatles are the best......
Beautiful piece about the man and his family, but I already saw this on CBS Sunday Morning. While important to give the backstory, what about the concert? I grew up with Glen Campbell and love his music. I used to watch that "Goodtime Hour" as a child. How was the concert? I'm guessing it was fantastic in an incredible venue. I live vicariously through such stories for I am disabled and can't afford tickets, no matter how cheap. Next time, please tell us about the music.
Didn't federal judge Wallace Tashima rule that while the student plaintiffs could continue their suit against the state the MAS teachers had no standing to sue in federal court? How can the case still be referenced as the Acosta case? Has Tashima's decision on lack of standing been appealed? If so, why has there been no news about it?

It is a sad state of the world that you showed no need to state who Jakob Dylan is (what are his accomplishments exactly?) while you felt the need to indicate who Paul Westerberg is!
Thank you Tucson Weekly/Eric for affirming Steve Jobs advice about staying hungry & child like.(positive paraphrasing)
Paz has a girlfriend????
I truly wonder what her father would think of the path she has chosen. She is very talented.
For those who like religious Jewish music as well as free Jewish sheet music, I would recommend http://livejewishmusic.com
A genius, you say? You mean, like an actual genius and not a pretentious loser who mistakes his own ego-driven bullshit for importance of some kind? No, he's not. He's not even an evil genius like Henry Kissinger - he's not Einstein. He's not Beethoven, Bach, Motzart, Brian Wilson or even John Lennon (who was not a genius but was lightyears ahead of this douchebag. Good work Chris Haire. These guys need a heavy dose of ayahuasca to be worth a good god damn.
Perhaps the Tucson Weekly didn't get the word on this, but Tucson's own Pan-African dance band, the Key Ingredients of African Soul, featuring singers K-Bass (Cote d'Ivoire), Praise Zenenga (Zimbabwe) and director/guitarist Doctor Twang will be performing an opening set for this not to be missed show at the Rialto. They are currently enjoying many successes following the August 2011 release of their album, Abidjan to Bulawayo, including being a big hit in Zimbabwe.
actually, catnjustme, Jesus did go around asking people to follow him right? Extremely overtly he said give up what you are doing and "follow me" in nearly every other story. But generally I agree with what you are thinking. And I don't think following Jesus is easy or simple, like signing on the right label. I think if Mute Math doesn't like the Christian Music movement, they are more than entitled to not be a part of it. It is very honest (and judgmental) to keep acting like "christian music" is all categorically poor musically speaking. But I don't see Jesus walking up to the band members at the end of their lives saying "why didn't you market your product as christian?... DEPART FROM ME!" I don't see that. There are plenty of devoted christian folks who will spend their lives selling orange juice, and I don't think that a Christian selling orange juice needs to be selling "christian orange juice". Now, if the orange juice was laced with crack, I might question the idea that the person selling it was a christian. Likewise, mutemath can sell their music all day, but if suddenly the lyrics promote messaging in their songs that runs against the values of the Bible, then I would simply say "hey, those fine musicians don't seem to be promoting values I want to pump into my brain all day." At best music can simply be compatible with my values... and mutemath may be "Christian-compatible" which is just fine. and being christian-compatible doesn't make it non-christian compatible. Much of what Jesus said was life-compatible. I hope we are all at least that. But more than that I pray the world gets all of that life and christian-compatible stuff and moreover gets sucked into all of the greatness that is Jesus in the most real and challenging Biblical sense.
From your #1 fan, you all deserve the accolades!!!
Go Key Ingredients! You are the most incredible dance band in town. Cant wait for the launch!!
Cults is such a fantastic band. I love their revivalist sense of pop music. Their new video for Go Outside is really cool: http://cultscultscults.com
