Austin City Limits (2009) Day 1 Photos and Review!

WORDS: Q Manning Day One of ACL was about as picturesque as you could imagine. The sun was out, the grass was lush and the party had started, because, when you get down to it, that’s all any music festival really is. Great food, music, a sea of cowboy hats and and scantily clad genders […]

The Postmarks at Spaceland – Show Review

Fitting their 50’s style dream-pop infused with swirls of fuzzy psychedelia, I couldn’t think of a more suitable venue for The Postmarks to kick off their tour in celebration of their new album “Memoirs at the End of the World.” Although front woman Tim Yehezkely may carry the name of a male, there’s absolutely nothing […]

Brookville at Spaceland – Show Review

In support of their September 29 release “Broken Lights,” Brookville joins Unfiltered Records labelmates, The Postmarks, on a five week tour US tour. Opening up for The Postmarks this past Friday, Oct. 2 at Spaceland, Brookville played a totally engaging and at times comical set. When I first took a listen to Brookville’s new album […]

Anna Ternheim at the Troubadour – Show Review

When I first got a hold of Swedish songstress, Anna Ternheim‘s new album “Leaving On A Mayday,” I though she had an exquisite, delicate voice that flowed so smoothly with the soothing aural landscapes of “Leaving On A Mayday.” Last Thursday, Oct. 1st she played a show at the Troubadour with Asobi Seksu and Swedish […]

Asobi Seksu at the Troubador – Show Review

Two man bands seem to be all the hype of the late, but only a few select performers can pull it off. In the case of Brooklyn duo, Asobi Seksu, they played a high-energy show last Thursday at the Troubador, alongside Anna Ternheim and Loney, Dear. I wouldn’t quite call them a duo though. And […]

Loney, Dear at the Troubadour – Show Review

Holy shit! Did your mic stand just hit me!? Yep. As Anna Ternheim’s set finished last Thursday at the Troubadour with Loney, Dear sitting in as her band, their mic stand fell from the stage and landed on my arm as they were clearing the stage. Thank goodness it didn’t touch the camera! As sweet […]

The Sway Machinery at The Sanctuary at Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco

Jewish, cantorial and inde rock? What the fuck … that just doesn’t sound right. Well apparently is sounded amazing this past Saturday, Sept. 19 when The Sway Machinery performed at The Sanctuary at Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco. Featuring Members of Balkan Beat Box, Arcade Fire and Beirut, it was a powerful night of music. […]

The Dodos at Amoeba Music San Francisco

Looks like The Dodos made time on their busy tour schedule to hit up Amoeba Music in San Francisco. No surprise there, considering they hail from this historic city quickly rising as a spawning ground for indie rock. In support of their new album “Time To Die,” The Dodos played a killer show this past […]

Bridezilla at the Echo

After reviewing their EP, I already knew these lil Aussies barely out of high school were quite the talent. As for their live performance this past Thursday night at the Echo, well, uh … they were excellent. Front woman, Holiday Carmen-Sparks’ vocals are ever-so enchanting even more so when she’s standing less than three feet […]

Outside Lands Festival 2009 Day 1

“I’m so hot my eyeballs are fuckin’ sweating!” Those were my exact thoughts as we rolled up to the 2009 Outside Lands music festival. I gotta admit, the LA heat and blue skies must of followed me to San Francisco cause it was record breaking heat at about 100 degrees. LA’s West Indian Girl hit […]
