Welcome Back: Music News Edition

Jordan45“When I come back like Jordan, wearin’ the four-five, it ain’t to play games with you…” –Jay-Z

Really, DeRosh? A Jay-Z quote? You trying to be Hova now?! Nope. It’s just finally back to business as usual around here. Earlier we caught you up on the slew of big-ticket concerts put together in the time we spent planning FourFourFest; now it’s time to get you up to speed on the non-concert-related music news. This is a news website, after all. No more playing games; it’s time to get to it. We’ll dunk on your music news after the break.

The Show Report, 7/24: The Double-Whammy

July 24, 2009

We don’t envy The Outland Ballroom’s crew tonight. Okay, maybe we do a little. They’ll be called upon to preside over two big-drawing shows, which would exhaust just about everyone except maybe this little guy. On the plus side, they’ve got a front-row seat for Boba Flex, The Dogs Divine, Six Shots Till Dawn and Adara early and Spookie Daly Pride, Roots Of Mankind and BringYourGreenHat late. Not a bad night’s work by any measure. You’ll want to be at the Ballroom at 5 p.m. for doors to the early show and at 9 p.m. for doors to the late show… unless, of course, you’re part of the staff, in which you’re probably already there and settled in for a long, huge night.

The Show Report, 6/25: We love fliers

June 25, 2009

june25flyer copyWe know the Cooter Brown/Bringers of the Dawn/Saracee show tonight at The Outland Ballroom will be a big show and a good one, but the truth is it is just one of several very good shows going on tonight. We lead with their show because, well, they provided a visual aid, and we like it. The flier depicts a man smashing himself in the head with a large bottle, and it’s remarkably well captured. Alright, enough flier talk. Cooter Brown, in our show-going experience, has really come into its own in recent months, and they team up with two solid groups with slightly experimental approaches to their music. It should make for a good expect-the-unexpected time.
