NEW SONG FROM HELLBOUND GLORY'S LEROY VIRGIL

NEW SONG FROM HELLBOUND GLORY'S LEROY VIRGIL

This past Friday my wife, a friend and I were blessed with a Florida appearance from the scumbag country sensations out of Reno, Nevada; Hellbound Glory. When I say my wife, a friend and I, I am not joking…there were, maybe, 4 other people in the bar and while it was very disheartening for me, […]

TAKER EASY TAKERS, IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED:

TAKER EASY TAKERS, IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED:

It’s been getting whispered in circles here in the sunshine state for a few months now and despite everyone hoping it wasn’t true, I am sad to report that it is. The Takers performance at Fest this weekend will indeed be their final show. There seems to be no real central reason for the split […]

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE – HARLEM RIVER BLUES

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE – HARLEM RIVER BLUES

Okay, I know this is gonna sound horrible but I am gonna say it anyway. I know all about Justin’s recent troubles with the law and his possible/probable relapse. That said, I don’t care. I don’t know Justin from Adam and he don’t know me, so what he does in his personal life affects me […]

SOANGELICATE’S ROCK REPORT: YEASAYER @ THE STATE THEATER

SOANGELICATE’S ROCK REPORT: YEASAYER @ THE STATE THEATER

The Yeasayer show was the first of many for me in the month of Rocktober, and the first show I’d been to at the State Theater since I saw the Breeders open for Green Day, which was a long ass time ago. As anyone who read my Yeasayer post a couple weeks ago knows, I’ve […]

ROOT JACK – IN THE PINES

ROOT JACK – IN THE PINES

A couple of years back I told y’all about a band coming out of Portland called Moonshine Hangover. At the time, I was a little bummed to have only found out about the band after they’d decided to call it quits. Well, flash forward two years (insert Garth and Wayne sound effect here) and I […]

TOP 5: TRAIN SONGS

TOP 5: TRAIN SONGS

When RomeoSidVicious mentioned that we hadn’t done train songs yet I was as surprised as him. I mean, after drinking songs and murder ballads I bet train songs are the most prevalent in the country & blues world. So, today is as good a day as any to remedy this gaping hole in the Top […]

TOP 5: MAKES ME THINK OF 9B

TOP 5: MAKES ME THINK OF 9B

Romeo here. Despite rumors to the contrary I have not shuffled off this mortal coil. I will forgo any explanation of my absence and just make with the Top 5! So this Top 5 is all about you, our faithful readers, and my curiosity. I want to know what songs make you think about us […]

TOP 5: BANDS YOU'VE NOT SEEN LIVE (BUT REALLY REALLY WOULD LIKE TO):

TOP 5: BANDS YOU'VE NOT SEEN LIVE (BUT REALLY REALLY WOULD LIKE TO):

Last year I went to over 30 shows. The year before that was largely the same but one thing never changes….no matter how many shows you go to, there are bands you wanna see live but just don’t. The reasons may vary. Some break up before you can catch them (Murder City). Some price their […]

THE ROCK REPORT: JEREMY STEDING AND THE BAND OF BASTARDS @ GOODE'S ARMADILLO PALACE – HOUSTON, TEXAS 12-03-09

THE ROCK REPORT: JEREMY STEDING AND THE BAND OF BASTARDS @ GOODE'S ARMADILLO PALACE – HOUSTON, TEXAS 12-03-09

Some days things just work together. While I was writing up the review of A Damn Good Ride I dropped by Jeremy Steding’s website to look for his bio and such and found out he was playing in town that night. I grabbed a phone number off the site, made a call, and set up […]

JEREMY STEDING – A DAMN GOOD RIDE

JEREMY STEDING – A DAMN GOOD RIDE

I like free music and I think that’s a given for most folks here but the caveat is that music is not like sex or pizza. When music is bad it’s not still good whether it’s free or not. Jeremy Steding’s music is not bad. In fact it’s damn good and both his albums are […]
