Jess is one of my favorite Tucson solo artists, his show at sparkroot was really great, i have been listening to this new ep a lot.
Yup, that in-store show sounds just about right (smiling with fond memories) TR was a hang out in the early 90s for me & a favorite to purchase unique band apparel. I had no clue they were closing.... sigh...
Thanks TR for being a geat & unique for the open music minded. May your next venture be amazing as well.
Hey Paul. Get back in touch. James 11/17/2013.
I think you need to rethink the MGMT album! Just get weird with the "Alien Days" video and you'll come around http://noisey.vice.com/music-video/premieres/mgmt-alien-days-1
My band 8 Minutes To Burn shared the stage with them at the Bisbee Royale and I remember being captivated by their soothing sounds and the laughter that filled the room when Amy made a funny comment. It was a great night to be introduced to them and when I think of them that is the night I will remember!
every body deserves to be happy,,,, let him be....... every one of us worth of love and to be love........ why cant you guys give him a little bit chances,,,, theres nothing wrong with it,,,, godbless and take care.....
This connection they had between them as well as with the audience is what drew me to them to play at my wedding in 2008. They played the day before, the wedding and the reception and infused the event with their particular joy. I saw them two years later at the Copper Queen where I bought their CD and they signed it for me. My marriage like the two of them is gone, but these two wonderful people will stay in the hearts of all who sat entranced by their music. Rest in peace dear Amy and Derrick, and my heart goes out to their families.
Awesome description of the way the Brian Dean Trio makes me feel! Thank you.
When you say, "exactly what should be expected from Pearl Jam in 2013.." What exactly do you mean and what are you expecting? Lightning Bolt, in my opinion, is the best album they put out since Yield. I liked Backspacer, but it was bland with similar songs and not much that plays on repeat on the IPOD - "Unthought Known, The End, Got Some" are good songs, but do not compare to "Mind your Manners, Sirens, Pendulum, Yellow Moon or Swallowed Whole." I fear just like a lot of you critics, the yearn for Ten and Vs. is in the back of the mind - and tend to forget that you are reviewing a band nearing 50 years old. What Pearl Jam gave us 23 years later, was more than I could ever have hoped for as an avid rock and roll alternative fan. This album, if you listened to it more than one time, is pretty genius. Yellow Moon and Pendulum are badass jams - Mind your Manners is the best pure rock song I have heard in 2 years since the Foo came out with Back and Forth. Critics appear to be extremely hard on PJ due to their incredible run with their first 5 albums released - amazing. Fact is, they got older and not singing about teenage angst, daddy problems, and being teased at school anymore. But this CD is extremely good and still 23 years later, comes out with new sounding music and new Pearl Jam classic experimental songs, A LA Pendulum and Sirens....I say, thank you Pearl Jam - this is exactly what rock and roll lovers needed - because our youth is not coming out with anything that is worthy of purchasing.
The bus came by and he got on. Mike, I'll miss you
Wild Belle is playing again at The Earl in Atlanta this Thursday. Sure to be a good show!
Um, scotsman, it seems like you are a fan of Polvo. Wanna jam some time? It promises to be real cool.
She declined to share her age? 40 must be about two years away. Embrace it.
another shitty review of mgmt's music from another artless bloke.
Thank god this wasn't another ill thought out open letter to Sammy Hagar.
Um, Polvo's comeback album came out 4 years ago....
There was no ill intent in anyone in that crowd. To state that " the Fox security team helped make sure it was a safe good time." is a complete and utter lie. They are the most arrogant and noisome security team I have ever encountered and have seen them overreact on several occasions. Just a bunch of yellow-shirted bullies intent on indulging their fantasy of self-importance and bogus authority. Kudos to Raul and the band for throwing them out. The crowd was nothing more than enthusiastic and joyful - gee, what a terrible thing! "Ruffians" ... what are you, nine? I'd expect to see a BS article like this in the Fundie Times. Good grief!
Music is my passion and I am a big fan of led zeppelin. ; When I heard Kashmir, I felt the spirit of the 70s and heard the greatest rock band of all time. Hope I can attend the Kashmir show in any of the Kashmir led zeppelin tour dates . Their Stairway to Heaven is a one of the greatest poetic masterpieces in music.
Well, if everyone like the same thing, there would always be a line. Remember, the town wasn't built for 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.
