NINEBULLETS.NET APRIL PODCAST: ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION:

Well. I’ll be a motherfucker. I never expected to still be doing these 12 months after the first one but here we are. Furthermore, I feel as though they are an integral part of the site now days. For some reason, I don’t really care to much about the stats for the podcast but today […]

A COUPLE OF WEDNESDAY TIDBITS (LUCERO, JJ GREY and MOFRO)

A COUPLE OF WEDNESDAY TIDBITS (LUCERO, JJ GREY and MOFRO)

While I was away in Boston some news came down the line about one of (if not the) ninebullets.net’s very favorite bands, Lucero. Seems that the countless miles in a van and all the sacrifices are actually paying off with a 4 album record deal with Universal/Republic Records. The first time I saw Lucero live […]

Rock Report: JJ Grey and Mofro @ Skipper's Smokehouse

In Florida August nights are hot and I don’t mean wear a pair of shorts hot. I’m talking wear as little clothes as possible and you’re still gonna sweat hot. It’s a fact that we’ve come to live with. Rain offers no solace, instead it adds to the stifling humidity. This is Florida and these […]

Tampa/St. Pete….To do….This weekend:

It’s been quiet around town for a few weeks, but it looks like this weekend will be making up for it. When it rains it pours, I guess, but it’s better than sitting at home and watching pre-season football. Friday Night @ Skipper’s Smokehouse: Jacksonville’s own JJ Grey & Mofro bring their swamp-infused brand of […]

Top picks for the first 1/2 of Y2k + 7

Top picks for the first 1/2 of Y2k + 7

Well. Here we are. July. The official beginning of the ass end of the year. So far, this year has proven to be a rather phenomenal concert year for the normally lacking Central Florida region. I was reading an exchange between a bunch of “big-time” bloggers earlier this year about how cheesy all of the […]

JJ Grey and Mofro – Country Ghetto

JJ Grey and Mofro – Country Ghetto

“A glorious, soul-drenched delight… down-home funk, blues and Dixie rock, unmistakably Southern, undeniably soulful.” —Billboard Here is the million dollar question, would the move to Alligator Records change Mofro? Well, they added horns. Other than that, not to much is different. That’s a good thing. I wonder how much of a following Mofro has outside […]
