    Annals of Mediocrity

    Poorly written, silly-ass press releases are one of the humorous perks of this job; the flipside is when you have to actually listen to the CDs that they come with. Exhibit A: local female-fronted trio Niki Kwik's upcoming EP, No Need to Apologize. H...

    BFH Out...

    Word came to me recently that local lap-guitar troubadour Brodie Hubbard (aka Brodie Foster Hubbard, aka Brodie Fucking Hubbard) is leaving the 'Nix soon to head back to La-La Land. That's a loss for the singer-songwriter set here; as I wrote earlier...

    Hookers and Blow

    I know what you're thinking, but no, this isn't a recap of how I spent the weekend. It's almost the holidays so I had to forego the hookers this time around. Rather, this post is marking a milestone of sorts for Radio Free America, soon to be known a...

    Anaesthesiology

    A while back I threw up a "show pick" blog post where I dissed locals An Aesthetic for their silly band name. Luckily these guys have a sense of humor, and sent me the following reply... Ha ha... Thanks for posting up the flyer for our show on Frida...

    Plugged Up

    As of today, the voting is open for the '07 PLUG Music Awards, the indie market's version of the Grammy's, or, uh, not really. PLUG's pretty tight though, giving ups to artists that wouldn't otherwise ever see an award or trophy. And it'...

    But Wait, Today's Wednesday!

    The Second Coming

    Ordinarily I'm a pretty blasphemous motherfucker; Jesus and I haven't had much of a rapport since I was in short pants. But, like an early Christmas miracle, I got a little bit of the Lord up in my hot little hands recently that, although its unlikel...

    Fat Tracks

    Last month Casey Lynch reviewed Fat Rhabit's self-titled debut EP, giving the local rockers a pretty glowing assessment. Just this morning, the band's manager Sean Shepherd sent over a couple new tunes from the Rhabit's upcoming full-length "rock ope...

    Country Punk - Letting Chip fall where he may

    "As a drummer, let me tell you, in my experience it's all the same," says Chip Hanna, longtime skin hitter for punk stalwarts U.S. Bombs and One Man Army and, nowadays, country singer, songwriter, and guitar player. We're discussing the similariti...

    Slam-o-Rama - Smarking the territory

    My buddy B-Boy looks like he could kick some serious ass. At 6-foot-4 and 350 pounds, he strikes an imposing figure in his baggy Dickies pants and stained T-shirts. His shaved head and scraggly beard add to the intimidation factor, so it's a good thi...

    X Marks the Spot - Milling around

    Of course, we love the club life, but after so many weeks of hitting bar after bar, we needed a change of scenery. We found it on Friday, April 13, at Brand X Store, where local artists Disposable Hero, Family Soda, Mad One, and Fixer showcased their...

    Green Way - The boys of Fred Green might just be done waiting for their big break

    After touring incessantly from 1996 to 2001, local trio Fred Green had an enviable fan base and horror stories from the road to prove it. Tons of 'em. The time their roadies unwittingly trashed Bruce Willis' guesthouse. The time vocalist/guitarist To...

    Bear Affair - Some 'splaining to do

    What the hell is a Limbeck? Short answer: a member of Limbeck, a So-Cal cocktail of Jayhawks roots rock and Shins dream-pop that often gets called alt-country. The long answer: Many moons ago, the Bastards of Limbeck were a teen pop-punk band named a...

    Occult Classic - Revel in the details

    "For me, religion didn't have a redemptive quality," says Celtic Frost bassist and co-founder Martin Ain. "It didn't help me to have a more positive outlook on life. It was a negative, oppressive kind of thing." Speaking to New Times from his hom...

    Dir En Grey - The Marrow of a Bone (Warcon)

    This Japanese rock band is huge in its home country, and it's starting to make waves here in the States, despite being way too cool for us. Dir En Grey is seriously the hippest hard metal band to hit the Western world in a long time. Originally part ...

    The Blood Brothers - Pushing several envelopes

    The Blood Brothers make "come down" music for people who never want to come down. Testing the edges of various sonic turf with their toes, this is an unconventional band that tears through a multitude of genres, including hardcore, punk rock, screamo...

    Jet - 1, 2, 3 . . . 11!

    The unkempt Aussie barroom brawlers in Jet are probably best known for making grungy, high-octane, adrenaline-fueled, testosterone-laden garage rock. The band first hit stateside in 2003 with the rough-edged, riff-heavy "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" an...

    Aereogramme - Choppy seas

    They have the glacial majesty of Sigur Rs, the swelling symphonic bluster of the Moody Blues, and a subtle metallic bent. Aereogramme are an intriguing Scottish quartet that combine an eclectic mesh of guitars and electronics with a variety of tempo...
