    The Recovery Room is a slice of classic dive bar heaven

    December is gone and I think I've been drunk since Thanksgiving. For some reason, I decided to celebrate a Greek Christmas with my Jewish friends down in Tucson. What's a Greek Christmas, you ask? It starts with a huge boneless leg of lamb with mi...

    Gettin' into the grooves at Raising Arizona

    There's been a lot of talk about hip-hop at the New Times office, so by midweek, we were geared up for Raising Arizona at The Bar, a.k.a. The Lucky Devil in Tempe. (Click here for more photos.) This weekly DJ night may not have the frantic buzz of Ho...

    OneRepublic - Dreaming Out Loud (Interscope Records)

    OneRepublic's Colorado connection is mighty tangential. Tulsa-born lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins met while attending high school in Colorado Springs, and guitarist Drew Brown is from Boulder. But local fans had little to do with ...

    Necrodamus - No Rest For the Wizard (Shifty)

    Guitarist Scott Stearns is an astronaut of musical violence. He explores dark, ugly places that reek of sulfur, rotgut, and boiling sweat. His Necrodamus project is a reshuffling of a recent Fistula lineup. But where that band lurks in a sludgy punk-...

    Too $hort - Get Off the Stage (Jive)

    Get Off the Stage is Too $hort's 17th album -- not counting compilations and reissues -- but it's also the end of an era. It's his last for Jive, the label he's been associated with since 1988. "I'm a legend in the game," he says on "Shittin' on 'Em,...

    Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Raising Sand (Rounder Records)

    On the surface, a musical collaboration between two such seemingly polar opposite talents as Americana/bluegrass goddess Alison Krauss and shouting, yowling Robert Plant is mind-boggling. But under producer/bassist T-Bone Burnett's direction, there's...

    Dionne Warwick

    For every quote, clich, or saying, there is something or someone to disprove it. Dionne Warwick has disproved F. Scott Fitzgerald's "no second acts in American lives" quip famously. With a voice both honeyed and dusky, Warwick was frontwoman for one...

    Pat Green

    The wave that this Texas-born singer/songwriter has ridden for the past few years isn't bad, considering he's someone who began seriously pursuing a professional career only after being fired (by his stepfather, who thought he needed a push) from his...

    Exodus

    It's too bad the days are gone when metal bands tried to make their album covers look all tough and sinister and ended up with borderline laughable results instead. After all, what metalhead of a certain age bracket doesn't get all warm and fuzzy thi...

    Gallows

    Gallows wield their instruments with such malevolence that it wouldn't be surprising to discover they also use them to brain rodents in their flat. The U.K. quintet is heavily indebted to the brutal pulse of '80s American hardcore acts like Black Fla...

    Crash Romeo

    Crash Romeo work on their power chords as often as they work on their action-figure poses. Guitar-driven verses come with enough space to allow ax-slinger Steve Anderson the time to point to audience acolytes, with pick nestled between thumb and midd...

    Rogue Wave surfs on a swell of infectious pop bliss
