After each of the few times I've been lucky enough to see The Word perform over the last decade, I've always left momentarily wondering the same thing: "if they're so damn good together, why don't these guys record and tour more often?" Of course the question always answers itself easy enough and is more of a selfish wish from a...
A day after appearing at the second weekend of the Austin City Limits festival, Nashville's Moon Taxi ended the first leg of their fall tour in support of their latest LP Daybreaker at the Civic Theatre in downtown New Orleans. It's been an exciting year of rapid growth for the Music City quintet marked by a new record, a...
On Monday night, Wilco (w/ the opening assistance of William Tyler) played the first rock concert in over a decade in The Orpheum Theater, a 1,500 capacity Beaux Arts style hall that reopened just eleven days prior to last night's show over a decade after being severely flooded in Hurricane Katrina. Located just off the edge of the French...
On New Year's Eve, Railroad Earth wrapped up a three-night run at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse to help ring in 2015. Both local Atlantans and those who traveled a long distance for the run were handsomely rewarded as the jamgrass veterans delivered the goods, playing two lengthy and powerful sets for a packed house in the clsasic art deco movie...
After the much-reported train wreck that was Foxygen’s last album-supporting tour (for their 2013 breakout LP We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic), I admittedly did some pre-show research before deciding whether it would be worthwhile to catch them live this go-round. After reading and hearing a few good things (and digging on their new album...
For the 20th annual event, organizers of the Southern Brewer's Festival managed to curate an alluring and notably jam-centric lineup to attract a sizeable crowd (many of whom traveled from out-of-town) out to the Chattanooga riverfront park. With over 100 breweries showcasing their suds and a strong lineup that included jam scene vets moe. and Soulive on Friday followed...
Never ceasing to amaze, the always-dependable-rock-band-with-the-funky-punctuation once again brought the house down Saturday night at ATL’s famed Tabernacle, a venue in which the band has a rich and storied history (see Warts and All Volume II for reference). This was my 25th time seeing moe. and it was clear as day right out of the gate that the familiar...

After organically building a national fanbase over the past seven years of heavy touring, major festival appearances and three full-length records, Nashville's Moon Taxi made their network television debut last night, playing "Running Wild" on The Late Show with David Letterman. On a personal note, I've been lucky enough to see these guys since the first days of the...
Live music, in its purest forms, provides the proverbial "Great Escape" or Paracosm that Washed Out's latest LP so precisely and expertly promises and delivers in spades all the way from the outer stretches of the A-side to the end of Side B. Since gaining popularity at such a rapid rate over the past few years on the heels...
Widespread Panic renewed an old tradition last night by returning to their old stomping grounds in New Orleans for yet another Halloween night show at UNO's Lakefront Arena. The show featured eight songs the band had never played before, a couple of JJ Cale covers and a memorable and surprising cover of The Strangeloves "I Want Candy" among other...
