I hope you all got out there and voted this week, and now that you’ve fulfilled your civic responsibilities it’s time to have some fun. If fun means singer-songwriter, shoegaze, chillwave or some folky-indie, anyway…
Greetings! While certain events this week have painted a rather sombre reality on a time that usually brings the city together with so much fun and creativity, we have to press on and do our best with our time here. Concentrating on better news, the city finally repealed the 91-year-old cabaret law so not only […]
I really don’t have anything useful to say for an intro, but fortunately I do have five very useful recommendations for you all this weekend.
Some of you might be nerding out at Comic Con this weekend, but music nerds of all kinds have a veritable feast of options to rival those reaching a once-a-year climax. It was tough to narrow it down to only five options, so don your most obscure band shirt and take in the nods of […]

Spoon released their ninth album, Hot Thoughts, back in March via Matador Records; a return to the label that released their debut album back in 1996. Produced by Dave Friedman, it’s the first Spoon album to not feature any acoustic guitar, the signature hooks remain but there’s an extra bounce in their step. The band have been touring pretty solidly […]
We’re somehow halfway through September already. While the weather’s going to stay warm for a bit, get ready to start swapping your peaches for apples and get those cardigans on standby.
Usually at this time of the week we contemplate the top 5 shows of the weekend, and indeed there are some great acts in town but for all intents and purposes there is only one show that really matters aside from the debut of Fliege at The Well on Thursday. Ken Stringfellow is playing a rare […]
Congratulations to everyone for making it through another week. I keep thinking it’s September already so rather than wishing the year away let’s back up a bit and try and enjoy what we have. The weekend looks to be almost perfect weather, afterall, so why not.
