street pajama is was and always will be shit. That girl 'singer' is horrible.
Anybody other than the reviews and one or two of their friends ever hear any of the albums reviewed here. They probably sold about 5 copies and that's to their families.
What the hell is a Sun Bones. Another never heard of Tucson band. Anybody ever heard them other than their girlfriends and family.
What a joke.
Agree with your comments about Mumford and especially the one note Lumineers, but I think the Avett Bros have something to offer.
Wire's Pink Flag...also a good one.
I'm old enuf to remember Street Pajama...They were a pretty good local band for sure.
If this inquiry is out of line, I apologize ahead of time. I knew a Steve Garb in Syracuse
in the late 60's-early 70's. I am 72 and I had always thought of Steve as being a bit younger than I, but not 14 years. He would have been about 20 when I knew him in Syracuse. It is very strange, but for some reason his name went through my mind this evening and I just decided to Google him. Did the Steve Garb that has passed live in Syracuse at the time that I remember him? I think that at that time he was with a lady named Joanie.
He lived for a while in a house on Euclid Ave. in Syracuse, then moved out to the country south of Syracuse in the early 70's. I left Syracuse in 1975 and never had any contact with him after that.
If I am correct, I pass my condolences on to his family and friends. He was a very good
drummer, and a good man, too. Having found this thread, I am suddenly very sad that I
didn't maintain contact with him and that he left so early.

I Have Been A Fan Since The Moment I Heard Their Music!!!
Foster......first off, before you criticize somebody's grammar , I suggest you proof read
your own screed.
As to my musical accomplishments, I can assure you that as a performer and a recording engineer in LA, I have played well outside somebody's house and for many years.
Bands like Godhunter here in Tucson are usually a joke. I've heard these guys and they fit the definition. Another go nowhere Tucson band who is lucky to even find a place to play.
As to flipping people off, it's a tired cliche done by those with zero imagination and a low iq.
Ah... let the seasons of cold beer, warm breezes, & good music begin!
Lead Me On was great. I agree if I never hear "Baby Baby" again it will be too soon.

Anon: Check in next week for a full Neko Case story. This week, we're just celebrating that she's part of the month of shows.
There's Neko Case on the cover.
There's Neko Case in a two page photo spread inside the paper version.
Where's the write-up about Neko Case?
@ Chis Foster - *applause*
Foster The People is going to truly be an amazing show. Their new album, Supermodel was released in the middle of March, and has already received terrific reviews. Whether you are a fan of their music or not, THIS is a show you do NOT want to miss!
Dear Timmothy...if you're offended by David flipping the bird then you must not be old enough to drive or competent enough to obtain a valid driver's license in the state of Arizona. I see the bird fly high every day. Before you criticize David or his band and try to measure their success in any sort of arrogant fashion do us all a favor and start off with your accomplishments with associated prove to back you statements. I'd be willing to bet you have never been in a band or if you were you guys did not do a damn thing outside of a members house let alone write more then one album and actually have them pressed and released on multiple formats. So next time you have the motivation to type run on sentences why don't you use all of your mental capacity to redirect that motivation into standing up and attending a show to see if they actually play for "25 people maybe twice a year" then you have merit to make such claims.

Let's see, your mom and dad will buy one cd, couple of drinking buddies one or two more. That'll about do it. And just think, you'll get to play in front of about 25 people maybe twice a year if your lucky.
Go flip yourself off.
Thanks for the kind words. That was an awesome gig.

Wonderful review. Ezra Letra and Beatsmith Medore are two of the most creatives artists out there.
Not only is he a brilliant poet and an amazing rapper, but Ezra Letra is also one of the most "real" people I have ever met. He is down to earth, compassionate, and humble. Ezra creates music that you actually want your children to listen to, not rap you have to ban them from.
