ROPPONGI'S ACE – INTO THE NIGHT

ROPPONGI'S ACE – INTO THE NIGHT

You know the term “better late than never”? Well if ever it applied to anything, it applies to me finally writing about these guys. I dunno why, but I’ve managed to find more reasons not to write about this album than I could to avoid a prostate exam. It ain’t cause I don’t like the […]

NERVOUS TURKEY – FATBOY LIKES TO ROLL

NERVOUS TURKEY – FATBOY LIKES TO ROLL

I’d like to drop a little love on some local boys making the sweatiest, grittiest, gonna fuck your momma juke-joint blues in town: Nervous Turkey. For the past year, Nervous Turkey has been wowing audiences on both sides of the bridge and creating a following (in a traditionally unwilling-to-follow region) one show and shirtless front […]

HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL – CASTING SHADOWS TALL AS GIANTS

HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL – CASTING SHADOWS TALL AS GIANTS

The Tampa Bay area is not known for much. Sure, there’s professional sports teams, it’s the strip club capital of the Southeast, we have sandy beaches, can wear shorts in December and there may be a few other things I don’t feel like listing, but we aren’t really known for our musical talents. There’s our […]

PICTURES POST:

In preparation for my friends 30th birthday this weekend (we’re renting Wrestlemania @ our local bar) I was cleaning off the camera. I realized I’ve taken a lot of pictures from shows but never managed to post ’em. So here they are. Pine Box Boys from Dave’s Aqua Lounge Nervous Turkey from Skippers Smokehouse Mofro […]

The Nine Volts

The Nine Volts

When I started ninebullets.net I had these naive fantasies of sprinkling local Florida bands into my daily musical ramblings, and thus giving them an even larger audience outside of the local area. After a few months of working on the site, I started sending out emails. I quickly learned that, by and large, the Tampa/St. […]

This Saturday @ Skipper’s Smokehouse, 88.5 WMNF will be hosting their Second Annual Americana Festival. Featuring 12 of the best Florida-based Americana artists, the show starts at 3:00 and runs till Midnight. Know what that means? It means you are gonna have to sample some of that fine, fine fried catfish they serve up there […]

Truckstop Coffee – One Damn Thing To Redeem

Truckstop Coffee – One Damn Thing To Redeem

Truckstop Coffee serves up a breed of alt.country/southern rock with songs about whiskey, women, heartache, and interstate highways. Their sound is probably best compared to fellow whiskey, women and heartache stalwarts Lucero or The Drive-by Truckers. Hailing from Lake Worth, FL, Truckstop Coffee is Pete Stein, Caleb James, Nick Orow and Venny Portalatin. In December […]

The Urbane Cowboys…only the truth tonight

The Urbane Cowboys…only the truth tonight

Saturday night, Tampa’s Urbane Cowboys will be celebrating the release of their new cd “…only the truth tonight” with as many of their closest friends that they can pack into Skipper’s Smokehouse. Claiming influence from Hank Sr. to Social D and including the one I can *really* hear, Whiskeytown, the Urbane Cowboys pump out a […]

and now for something a little different:

I am gonna take a break from the typical music posts and drop a few words on a friend of mine. Disclaimer: he has some art work for the site as well as the art for the upcoming site redesign and for some stickers I recently ordered. What does a low traffic mp3 blog need […]
