The Show Report, 6/26: For James

June 26, 2009

Tonight many music-scene veterans will converge on Nathan P. Murphy’s for a show to support one of their own. James Davis, son of MK Ultra gutarist Kevin Flannery, died recently, and tonight The Murph Dome puts on a monster concert in his honor with Plasticity Switch, Pillbox, About Time, Allie Catz, Ilijah and Tokyo Sauna. It’s a big night for the acts involved–hell, Allie Catz reunited just for this show–and, hopefully, a moment of solace for the grief-stricken parents. All proceeds go toward the James Davis Foundation, so come out in droves and enjoy a good show to help out a family wanting to give its son the sendoff he deserves.

Elsewhere around town you’ll find the following:

April 19, 2009

GMA_2009LOGOWith barbecue fighting bouts with rain on and off throughout the afternoon, the weather drove everyone at Rock ‘n’ Ribs, hungry or no, under the music tent for the GO Music Awards Best Band showcase. They picked a good one to pack the room for; Ilijah, Sweetwater Abilene, Cindy Woolf, Jam Room and The Cropdusters each played 30 minutes for the crowd and for the four judges present to score the performances and decide 2009’s GO Magazine Best Band winner. We have the results after the break.


I got a fever… and the only cure… is more BUKKAKE

February 4, 2009

bukkakeHe’s kept busy each week with gigs with Platinum Social Club, but since the dissolution of The Sociables keyboardist Johnny Bukkake has been anything but dormant. Instead he’s been preparing The Never Saints, a new group that plays, from what we can gather from his description, sexed-up swamp stomp music. The group is comprised of Bukkake on keys/bass/vocals/guitar, local in-too-many-bands-to-mention-them-all guy Jim Rea on drums, Mark Cassidy of The Hillbenders and Cindy Woolf’s backing band on lead guitar, Dustin “Duk” Rehagen on drums and Heather Buckner on backing vocals. Watch for shows starting in April, or possibly March. We’ll keep you posted.

Springfield vs. Austin: Who wins?

September 15, 2008

I got an email last week from Jason Poe, formerly of the Springfield band the Professional Americans and currently living and writing music in Austin, Texas under the name Jets Under Fire. His band is coming back to Springfield this weekend to play at Randy Bacon Photography Studio & Gallery Saturday, September 20. Sounds like a cool show, I thought–and an opportunity. It seemed to me as though Jason would be especially qualified to write a musician’s-eye view comparing Springfield and Austin musically, looking at what Springfield does right as well as what it can do better. The results were everything I hoped for and more. It’s a long read, but I sincerely hope anyone who visits this site and cares about local music–from musicians to venue owners, and even local administrators–will gain something from it. Not only is it hopeful, it’s instructive. You’ll find the full essay after the break. Enjoy.
