Live: K.T. Tunstall, Paddy Casey

Look who I found skipping around Fourth Street Monday evening. (OK, I admit it, I’m a starf*cker … so what?) The K.T. Tunstall and Paddy Casey show at the Brown Theater was bitter sweet. I wasn’t too familiar with her catalog, other than the couple radio hits that have been beaten into our skull (“Suddenly […]

Review: The Last Shadow Puppets: The Age of the Understatement

Alex Turner is the brains behind the Arctic Monkeys. Miles Kane is pals with Turner, and is also the lead singer of the Rascals, a band that has yet to release a full album but has toured with Arctic Monkeys. Obviously then, the time was right for a supergroup side project. Say hello to the […]

Tegan & Sara in Cincinnati – 5.09.08

What can I say, it was a great week for concerts. The sold-out Tegan & Sara show at Bogart’s was mayhem from beginning to end. I knew of some friends who were setting up camp in line at 10am Friday morning, just to ensure a good spot near the stage. I thought they were nuts, […]

Uh Huh Her. Nashville. 5.07.08

Hands down, this is the best concert I’ve seen this year. Uh Huh Her is a relatively new L.A.-based band, yet they have garnered quite a following because one of the members stars in a certain hit TV show on Showtime. But more on that later. UHH released an EP in 2007, available for download […]

These New Puritans – "Beat Pyramid"

On their MySpace page, they call themselves live electronics/big beat/shoegaze, TNP released their debut album Beat Pyramid in the U.S. this March, which contains tracks that may or […]

And though Idaho, Alaska is far from becoming a household name, these guys rock out with the passion and skill of seasoned veterans. Obvious influences on range from Pavement to early Modest Mouse, but Idaho, Alaska also exhibits a number of […]
