Lightning Bolt Live Show Review

There is something magical to be said about a band that can simultaneously make you feel like a boat about to capsize and like the calm within a storm — simultaneously like god with ten outstretched, flailing arms, and like an isolated Buddhist monk. That’s Lightning Bolt. Healthy Times Fun Club – Seattle, WA –...Read...

Joe Sib, Eric Lincoln Hurst Live Show Review

Going into Joe Sib’s one-man show, California Calling, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

And, like a real entertainer, Sib gave a show that was everything and then some. Rendezvous Seattle, WA 2011 –...Read...

Baths, BRAIDS, Gobble Gobble Live Show Review

Rickshaw Stop – San Francisco, CA – 03 April 2011 For an opening band, holding the audience’s attention can be tricky. That’s especially true in electronic music, where you’ll often find introverted DJs shyly hunched over laptops, ignoring the audience completely. Let’s face it, turning knobs and pressing buttons isn’t the most exciting thing to...Read...

Roomful Of Teeth Live Show Review

To use the word “unusual” to describe the performance February 19th, at the Merkin Concert Hall in NYC, is an understatement. As part of the Ecstatic Music Festival taking place from Jan-March 2011 in NYC, Roomful Of Teeth performed songs composed by William Brittelle, Caleb Burhans, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-YaRdS.
