Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Dax Riggs + Lucas Gorham + Singer/Songwriter Showcase + Black Joe Lewis + Ookami Kids + Letters to Voltron + More

Yes, yes, yes. It’s now Friday, August 30th, which officially marks the start of Jeremy’s Birthday Weekend, which will mostly spent playing laser tag, eating cupcakes, and watching movies — because, dammit, I don’t do nearly enough of those things…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Polyphonic Spree + The O’s + Jealous Creatures + Square and Compass + UPROAR Festival + More

New week, new pile of cool shows coming up, starting with tonight, Thursday, August 29th, when there’s definitely plenty going on. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Latch Key Kids + Dead to the World + Buxton + Dana Falconberry + Fat Tony + David Ramirez + Race to the Moon + More

We’re on to Saturday now, August 24th, and yours truly is taking a break from moving/trashing/refurbishing furniture in the hot, hot sun to type a little bit about what all’s going on tonight. And yeah, there’s a fair bit; here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Wheel Workers + Glass the Sky + Ruiners (last show!) + Mikey & The Drags + Hell City Kings + Quiet Morning & the Calamity + More

Hey, there — there’s a lot of stuff going on this weekend, starting tonight, Friday, August 23rd, so I may have to be a little bit brief when talking about it… Here’s what looks/sounds good to me for this evening…

Yr. (Early) Weekend, Pt. 1: Adam Bricks + Ancient Cat Society + Walker Lukens + Boyfrndz + Sunrise and Ammunition + Second Lovers + More

Hey, all — back from vacation in London, finally (and yes, it was fun, even if I sadly didn’t get to see any actual English bands while in England), so I’m attempting to drag myself back up on the horse by doing things a little bit earlier than I have previously…

The Butler

Some time shortly after the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, a number of media outlets searching for more “human interest” stories about the meaning behind the first black president stumbled upon the story of Eugene Allen, a White House butler who’d worked for seven different…

KingBathmat, Overcoming the Monster

Overcoming the Monster is the seventh full-length release from KingBathmat, a prog rock band from England. I came across them earlier this year and downloaded their free six-song sampler, which had one song from each of their…

Generation No, Left-Handed Scissors

Before the turn of the 21st Century, in what I like to refer to as the Happy-Go-Lucky Nineties (at least for music), there were different times in music. Sarah McLachlin started a female gathering called Lilith Fair, which if I remember correctly…

Yr. Weekend: Frank Smith + Second Lovers + Castle Lights + HHOC Getting Sued Party + Robin Zander + Deep Ella + The Soapbox Revolution + Vanilla Sugar + More

It’s not that nothing was going on last weekend, because there were plenty of great shows. In fact, my favorite band of the last decade, OURS, was in town at Fitzgerald’s last Sunday night. If you weren’t there, you missed out…

Jobs

Not that we need a movie to tell us, but it took a huge amount of talent, skill, and luck for a brash young man to introduce personal computers to the world and build the most successful electronics company in history from nothing. Almost as much talent…

Elysium

Fans and creators of sci-fi love to talk about the power of the genre being in its ability to use analogy to depict our current world, using its fantastic backdrop to push modern mores and conventional wisdom to extremes in order to test how accurate or worthwhile…

Femme Fatales: The Women of Film Noir

When we think of film noir, we think of few things over and over: Humphrey Bogart, dim lights and dark shadows, Humphrey Bogart (hey, he played Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade, what do you want?), thugs with guns, and dames that are never up to any good…

Yr. Weekend: Futurebirds + Poor Dumb Bastards + Electric Attitude + The Eastern Sea + White Linen Nights + Warped Tour + HPMAs + More

Jeremy asked me to fill in for him for the next couple of weeks with the Yr. Weekend segment, so here’s where I plan to be (or for some of these here’s where I would like to be if I could afford it) this weekend…

The Wolverine

What comes next? It’s the question every storyteller dreads, faced with the blank page or canvas, trying to figure out what should happen to their characters next. How to develop them, what to have happen to them, and why? If you think about it, it’s the question…
