Gary Clark Jr. brings the blues to the House of Blues

On Monday night in New Orleans, the House of Blues was graced with the presence of one of the next generation’s blues guitar heroes, Gary Clark Jr.  Clark, who spent his years learning guitar in Austin, Texas, was preceded onstage by fellow Texans the Moeller Brothers, both bands lending a similar southern blues rock sound to a sold-out room of ears. Having witnessed Clark rip through a handful of outdoor festivals, locals were excited to see him at a more intimate venue.

Michael McFarland | A Failed Breakup | Review

Musicians that decide to go the solo route, all by their looooooooooooooonesome, are deserving of respect just for the sake of displaying the confidence it takes to share their creativity and talents to make good things happen. Solo acts have to deal with huge expectations ranging from thousands of folks in a big venue looking to catch the best version ever of their favorite songs or simply being the focus of fifteen people in a small club with strings of Christmas lights as the stage lighting.

Paul Barrere & Fred Tackett | Cervantes Other Side | Review

Certain casual fans of the Creole Rock Granddaddy Jamband Little Feat may be under the false impression that the band’s true color died along with founding guitarist, singer, de-facto bandleader Lowell George in 1979.

Grateful Web Interview with SCI/EOTO's Jason Hann

Between The String Cheese Incident’s impressive Hulaween performances at Suwannee Music Park, gearing up for what’s sure to be a spectacular three-night New Year’s run out in Colorado, not to mention EOTO’s seemingly non-stop touring schedule, it’s safe to say Jason Hann is quite a busy musician.

Mazzy Star | Paradise Rock Club | Boston, MA | 11/19/13 | Review

Some things never change.

It’s already out that Mazzy Star’s Seasons of Your Day—their first album in some seventeen-odd years—is a lark’s call back to ’82 and the Paisley Underground, boasting the same beautiful shoegaze melodies behind She Hangs Brightly and So Tonight That I Might See that so endeared singer Hope Sandoval, guitarist David Roback and company within their underground circles in their heyday.

BIG Something | BIG Something | New Music Review

Sol Cat | Welcome to Cowabunga | New Music Review

Welcome to Cowabunga is a short EP (only three tracks deep), so we’re really not getting a full lay of the land here, just a quick tour de psychedelia. Still, the set runs long enough to reveal some telling references—start to finish, Cowabunga could’ve been My Morning Jacket’s doing if (lead singer)’d been smokin’ a pack o’ Marb Reds on four hours sleep every day the past ten-odd years; a little bit more of a stretch, but I’d be comfy enough tossing in a comparison to Dead Confederate, too, just for kicks (albeit a jollier, trendier incarnation of the sludge quartet.)
