I felt very bad for the talented musicians (the instrument-playing bandmates) having to deal with that drunk wreck spoiling their show. Your music is awesome. Your frontman kills it. Too bad he never introduced you guys, you would've gotten some well-deserved applause. Ditch the drunk.
Can't wait for this one! Very Little Daylight will be performing @ 6pm
Felim Egan and his group were TREMENDOUS! We stopped in for the session last week and there were a dozen or so incredibly talented musicians jamming together. Our young baby loved the music, and my wife loved checking out the cute musicians. Definitely coming back next Monday.
NOFEST'13- Once upon a time a girl stepped off the beaten path, must've made the right sacrifices to the right gods (of Right Place/Right Time) & wound up:
* on The Loft's living room floor getting the b.s. removed from her brain by super-conductor Mike Lastra
* helpless as "Boo Frog" once again connected the starry firmament to earth's surface
*welcomed into Punk Paradise by a fearless angel in "The Hand That Bleeds"
*and beholding peak humanity when the power blew for few minutes, but "The 20-Foot Man" stormed forth into the willing, back-yard community audience's hearts-of-beauty with kinetic passion.
"Once upon a time called RIGHT NOW!"(P-Funk said that). Thank you, St. Johns NoFest (Roxandra Pennington said that.)
This show was everything live music should be and more. Leann's vocals and band were right on; their spontaneity and willingness to take risks are almost unprecedented in national touring acts today. Combined with her openness, honesty, emotion, and personal fan interaction made this a very special performance and more. Something you do not see often enough in live music. Highlights included Borrowed from her new CD, How do I Live, covers of Elton John’s Rocket Man & Janis Joplin’s Summertime, and the impromptu cover of Dave Matthew’s “Crash Into Me.” The latter of which came from a fan question on her favorite song, request to play, which led to the band literally working out the song on stage with Leann’s iPhone in hand for music & lyric support (I’ll assume). Leann is the real deal; this show leaves no doubt in my mind!
You obviously have no clue what you’re talking about, your remarks are invalid and rather childish it’s as if you weren’t even there so how can you give an honest review. Here is a review of last night’s show from someone who was there and I myself am a working musician. John was amazing, his guitar work was stellar and spot on and his voice although not 100% back to normal due to surgery was still great. His band was a combination some of the best backing musicians I have heard in a long time. The sound mix was very good, vocals a little muddy but guitar and music really solid. Stage was tight and the backdrop was amazing. So let’s see; killer guitar work, good sound, 2 ½ hrs of psychedelic pop/country blues which made for a very dreamy atmospheric soundscape, hmmm sounds like a great concert, YEP. I have not heard a lot of the music that was played last night, I don’t follow john closely but wow what cool music and great show. Next time you give a review at least go to the show. By the way tickets, were reasonably priced and how many bands play more than 2 hours? I got moneys worth.
How fitting that this is at the Sleep Country Amphitheater, though perhaps Snooze Barfy Barfitheater would be a more appropriate venue
Portland punk for the win!
This is going to be a loud one
lulu, please read "the elements if style." You can do it before or after you go fuck yourself, whichever is convenient.
what the fuck does having fred armisen at the opening have to do with you shopping there? if neil hamburger were gonna' be there, would you say 'okay,that's a cool enough guest to have me as a customer'..who the fuck are you anyway?
I'm pretty sure I'm going to be disinclined to patronize a shop that thinks having Fred Armisen there is hip and cool.
Yoonhee Choi's work is amazing--but she is from South Korea, not North!
More info can be found here:
Lady Rose, whose work has been compared to that of Maya Angelou, interweaves imagery of mirrors, Christianity and sensuality into her writing that is both effortless and thought-provoking. She allows her audience to share in her struggle of what it means to be a woman, Black and Christian in the 21st century.
so hyped up for this show! rolling through with a 4XL death satchel that has the words "who farted?" etched on the side.
Awesome bands 2nite! This place ROCKs. You can smoke outside and still see and hear the bands
Can't wait to see it! And I've never been to the Peculiarium so it's a double win good time fun time!
Come on down. I will have plenty of copies of Tales of Hot Rod Horror 1 and 2 and The Littlest Bitch. New art, Old art and fine art prints. Thanks
If you haven't been to Tonic Lounge Portland recently you are in for a surprise. We have renovated the historic building quite a bit. There is a new sound system in the venue, and quite a few aesthetic details done on the patio and in the lounge. Come for dinner before the show because our fully homemade menu is tasty, creative, and we recently got a 100% from the health inspector. There are lots of pics on our facebook page.
Come relax with dinner and a cocktail, and stay for Demure , GIve it FM, and Kings and Vagabonds. How can you beat that! - Sean S. / Tonic Lounge Portland
