    Johnny Rawls

    There was a time when blues and R&B/black popular music were not so very far apart. Performers such as Etta James, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Little Johnny Taylor merged the gritty, down-home aspects of the former with the polished, up-market style of t...

    Homme New Year's Eve Party

    The turntablists are definitely gonna be out in force on Monday, December 31 (a.k.a. New Year's Eve), as nearly every DJ worth his or her weight in used vinyl has some sort of wax-working session planned for Auld Lang Syne. But if you can't get into ...

    Reviewing the Reviews - The Fiery Furnaces

    The Fiery Furnaces -- the frequently conceptual Brooklyn indie/art rock band with siblings Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger at its creative core -- is typically branded with such adjectives as "difficult," "challenging," "dizzying," and "unpredictable...

    Frame One: Sundance sensation brings the Frames' Glen Hansard to the screen

    The Real Bar closes without notice

    I never went to the Real Bar a whole lot because, well, the service sucked and the setup for their all ages shows left the drinkers (i.e. the ones spending real money) at a sight line disadvantage when the bands were playing. It's nice to still have...

    Won't You Be My Neighbor? - Arcadia after dark

    The Arcadia neighborhood is known for stellar real estate and early mornings at La Grande Orange. So the nightlife is most likely to take place safely at home with a nice bottle of wine in a setting fit for a Pottery Barn catalog. But we had our susp...

    Source Victoria - The Fast Escape (www.myspace.com/sourcevictoria)
