INTRODUCING ANDREW COMBS:

INTRODUCING ANDREW COMBS:

Nashville gets a bad rap and, for all intents and purposes, it’s well earned. Sure Nashville is too blame for Big & Rich. But it’s also ultimately to be thanked for Malcolm Holcombe and a whole host of other highly revered Americana artist. Ultimately, Nashville is a lot like the hub of any industry whereas […]

GUEST POST: TRUCKSTOP DARLIN' @ SLIM'S LAST CHANCE; SEATTLE, WASHINGTON

GUEST POST: TRUCKSTOP DARLIN' @ SLIM'S LAST CHANCE; SEATTLE, WASHINGTON

Hey everyone. My man (and long time ninebullets reader), Chris Green, emailed me over the weekend and asked if I’d be interested in a guest post about a band we recently wrote about, Truckstop Darlin’. Naturally, I jumped at it. Hope y’all enjoy it. On this particular rainy Seattle Friday night, like lots of nights, […]

SOANGELICATE'S ROCK REPORT: JUKEBOX THE GHOST @ THE CROWBAR, YBOR CITY

SOANGELICATE'S ROCK REPORT: JUKEBOX THE GHOST @ THE CROWBAR, YBOR CITY

Philly’s Jukebox the Ghost stopped by Crowbar in Ybor City last Saturday night for their second visit this year, this time to promote their second album, Everything Under the Sun. I’ve been a huge fan ever since seeing them open for Ben Folds, and even though they were just here in June, the band delivered […]

FRANK TURNER – THE ROCK AND ROLL EP

FRANK TURNER – THE ROCK AND ROLL EP

LOL. The other day I said it was ninebullets.net policy not to write about EP’s, only to then write about an EP. Well I am gonna follow that up by, less than a week later, writing about another EP. I mean, wtf is policy for if it’s not to be blatantly disregarded, right? Anyhow, Frank […]

CAITLIN ROSE – OWN SIDE NOW

CAITLIN ROSE – OWN SIDE NOW

I think I heard Caitlin’s EP, Dead Flowers, but it didn’t make much of an impression on me. I only remember seeing the CD cover. I didn’t even recall her name when I decided to do a little research on the opener for tonight’s Justin Townes Earle show here in Tampa. Shame on me. This […]

TOP 5: TAKEN TOO SOON…

TOP 5: TAKEN TOO SOON…

December 8, 1980 & December 8, 2004. John Lennon and Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott respectively were shot. If there is a running theme in music besides “Sex, Drugs & Rock and Roll” it’s the consistent muting of some of it’s brightest stars before their time and I thought today’s Top 5 could acknowledge that. So, today’s […]

SOMETIMES THE MUSIC GODS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED AND THEY DELIVER (or) OFF! – THE FIRST FOUR EPS

SOMETIMES THE MUSIC GODS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED AND THEY DELIVER (or) OFF! – THE FIRST FOUR EPS

Occasionally an album comes along that upsets the ninebullets.net apple cart and forces it’s way to the front of the “I’m posting about this list.” Today is one of those days. My husband approval ratings have be trending down the last few days and this morning I was listlessly roaming through my music looking for […]

A NEW NINEBULLETS.NET POLICY:

A NEW NINEBULLETS.NET POLICY:

I’ve been tossing this idea around since the whole myspace redesign a little while back and I’ve decided to go ahead and set it in stone. Decree: ninebullets.net will no longer link to bands’ MySpace pages at the end of the posts. Why? Two words and a number: 30 second samples. On a personal basis, […]
