Deer Tick at the Yost Theater – Cee Lo and McCauley’s Grill’s! A Show Review

Deer Tick at the Yost Theater – Cee Lo and McCauley’s Grill’s! A Show Review

I think if Deer Tick were on NBC’s “The Voice” they would win, and the win would come without any mention of frontman John McCauley’s jacked up grill (hell, Cee Lo might even hook John up with some extra platinum caps he boxed up in his attic). Those raspy-laced pipes could rival Celtic singers, aging […]

Live Review: Yelle @ Masquerade – Atlanta, GA

Live Review: Yelle @ Masquerade – Atlanta, GA

By Geneva Toddy ATLANTA, GA — Yelle graced the stage of Atlanta’s Masquerade with the promise of giving the best show possible. They certainly did not disappoint. Originally from France, Yelle brought its electro-pop style to America with nothing lost in translation. The band sings in French, which would lead you to believe that anything […]

Live Review: Amos Lee – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA

Live Review: Amos Lee – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA

In horn-rimmed glasses and a scruffy beard, Amos Lee looked more like the “cool” young English professor you had in college than a singer-songwriter with a number one album, Mission Bell. The academic look was fitting, actually, because on a recent Saturday night at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, Lee gave a master class in […]

Live Review: Buried Beds, Fake Problems, Murder By Death @ The Earl, Atlanta, GA 3/8/11

Earlier this month Buried Beds graced the stage at The Earl here in Atlanta while on tour promoting their recent release Tremble The Sails, which I recently reviewed here. I rarely make it to a show early enough to catch the opener, although after spending two weeks studying this album, I would have recommend arriving […]

Interview/Live Review: Kill County — @ Trophy’s in Austin, TX

For a truly unique take on folk and country music, look no further than Kill County. The band recently brought their minimalist old-school roots sound on a mini-tour to Texas, playing a series of shows around the Austin area. I sat down with the band’s vocalist/banjo player, known only as Ringo, vocalists/guitarist Josh James, and […]

Live Review: Reptar & Hello Ocho @ Star Bar – Atlanta, GA – 2/17/11

Live Review: Reptar & Hello Ocho @ Star Bar – Atlanta, GA – 2/17/11

I am not sure what I expect every time I attend a show in the indie scene because the crowd never changes. Kids running around with fake IDs in their pockets while relishing their parents’ absence, local scenesters ten years their senior taking advantage of a free show, and a few well-dressed guys that heard […]

Live Review: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (La Zona Rosa, Austin, TX 9-24-10

By Luke Winkie (photos by Annie Fichtner) Sharon Jones might be the hardest working woman in showbiz, until you see the party-dressed, 50+ singer prowl back and forth across the front of the stage making eye contact with everyone she could see. With the well-dressed Dap-Kings blasting out some of the pulpiest notes in soul, […]
