The Show Report, 8/1: Washington Irving, we barely knew ye

August 1, 2009

Tonight marks the last show for local indie rockers Washington Irving, a farewell at Lindberg’s that also marks a return of sorts for Faatherton and the latest in a steadily growing number of concert appearances for the highly rated Ghost Dance. With singer Brett O’Neal leaving for law school in Illinois, Washington Irving hangs it up with one of the 2008’s best local albums under its belt and, hopefully, a fantastic farewell show to be remembered by. Good luck, guys.

Also happening tonight:

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.

Rock Talk 6/14 with Tuck & Abney and The Short Histories of Powerful Nations

June 15, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1Diversity is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? Last night’s episode of Rock Talk on Z 106.7 was an example of local-music diversity at its best. It started with a sit-down talk with local acoustic duo Tuck & Abney to talk about the group’s maddeningly busy schedule of shows, accompanied by two in-studio performances. That was followed by an appearance by thinking-man’s hard-rock group The Short Histories of Powerful Nations, who previewed their new album, A Brief Treatise on Land Ownership Vol. 1, and its corresponding release show this Friday. Oh, and did we mention the all-new-tunes edition of Four from the FourFour? Experience local-radio goodness after the break.

The Show Report, 5/21: Alphabet soup, revised

May 21, 2009

alpha_soupWhy alphabet soup, DeRosh? You got something against Alpha-Bits?! You’re so prejudiced…

Well, whether you prefer your food that makes you spell things in breakfast or dinner form, there’s no disputing the number of consonants being tossed around in tonight’s shows. KG (of Acumen) and DJ P (of DJ P) are back in action tonight–one for tonight only, the other every Thursday–and we’re feeling a bit nostalgic as a result. And what’s more nostalgic than food you look forward to playing with more than eating?

We’ll do nothing but look ahead–as far as tonight, anyway–after the break.
