I was just thinking I should put Celebration Rock on.
Slip and Slide - Samuel L Cool J
Jealous (I Ain't With It) - Chromeo
Miserable - Tokyo Police Club
Simple and Sure - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Lazaretto - Jack White
And probably Ain't...
Neighborhood Creep, do you like Romantica? They're one of my favorites from your neck of the woods. I think their singer Ben Kyle is doing it solo now.
I really like when he goes Woah! at 1:47 in Red Eyes.
Xscape is actually a lot of fun. A Place With No Name is my fave after one listen.
I don't need a happy song, but I was hoping for something that moves a bit. Give me a 'Get Some' or two, not happy, but up tempo. Lykke Li has such a unique voice, nine moody ballads seems like a...
I'm listening to Sun Kil Moon's Benji on spotify for the second time. I'm not sure I want to add this to my library or really acknowledge it too much. It is just so heartbreakingly beautiful. Or...
It's pretty good, but I can see why it didn't make it onto an album.
Taylor Upsahl (Phoenix, AZ) - 14 year old singer-songwriter with a nice acoustic cover of Alt-J's Breezeblocks:
Listen to her full length on...
And More! better be awesome or I'm staying home.
Full line-up is up now.
Hold Steady tickets purchased!
Well, my curiosity is piqued. With the names mentioned so far, it sounds like a move in the right direction for Phoenix festivals at least.
Come see Vinyl Station with me this Thursday at Crescent.
Vinyl Station (Phoenix, AZ) - Two piece, singer-songwriter/rock band. Phoenicians, go see them them this Thursday at Crescent.
Kelly Hogan. Yeah, she can sing.
I'd love a National headlining set, but going on before the headliner would be more likely. At least they need to move over to the main.
Chvrches was fun last night. Sold out show at the Marquee and the big crowd was into it. The singer's voice sounded good live. She said it was their first time in Arizona, but she knew about it...
I care, thanks for the write-up. I appreciate a take from anyone that was there. Much better than a list.
I hate to damn it with faint praise, but The War on Drugs's album is one of those that is really nice to start out the work day with.
I get what you are saying. It's not Americana like the genre, but Americana like embodying something American. More of a fuller, produced classic rock sound, than the more spare indie rock of their...
I'm digging the new Pains of Being Pure at Heart. It's a lot more fun than their self-titled.
Anyone going to The Naked and Famous tonight?
Thanks. As a Mates of State fan, I'm digging this.
Appreciate the write ups, particularly this one.
I couldn't get it on my TV with my Roku. It might be worth getting chromecast just for festival streams.
Found Arcade Fire's set on YouTube. Great all the way to the end.
The rebroadcast shut down and I was only part way through Arcade Fire. At least I got Power Out > Rebellion (Lies).
Says can't play on this device for me.
On a computer at your desk, always the best way to enjoy live music. But, yeah, I liked their set, too.
This. Plus another week with the set times.
Set times could be the reason. They're only straight up against Future Islands and Dillon Francis.
Grouplove - Girl Talk
OutKast - Jagwar Ma - Haim - Chromeo - The Replacements - ZZ Ward - MS MR
Lorde - Banks
Pixies - Julian Casablancas - Sleigh Bells - The Head And The...
Folders have been around for a while. What I want to know is when they are going to add the rest of Aaliyah's catalog. I've got Age Ain't Nothing But A Number.
This happened at Black Lips, too. He was cool, though, smiling and keeping the barrier in place and helping crowd surfers down.
Always have your significant other pick what you see when you are 50/50 on a conflict or don't have a strong opinion. Better shot of getting your important sets later.
On Friday and Sunday, you have to choose between the #2 and #3 acts. That's rough. Otherwise, they've laid it out pretty well.
The Black Lips were great. They brought a saxophone player our for Family Tree and Boys in the Wood, which was a nice bonus. The new stuff did sound great and they played the older stuff I wanted to...
To actually be recognizable, I will wear a green JJ's cantina shirt. My other distinguishing characteristics: tall, white. I'm looking forward to this show. I'm digging Underneath the Rainbow....
Anyone going to Black Lips tonight? I will be the guy wearing a shirt. Say hi.
It is in driving distance form my house .
Anyone else listen? I stumbled onto 93.9 a couple weeks ago. They play indie/alternative and mix in local bands, which is cool. I've heard Black Carl, Dry River Yacht Club, Black Moods, and others....
1. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
2. Tokyo Police Club
3. Black Lips
4. The Hold Steady
5. Angel Olsen
6. Drive-By Truckers
7. The War On Drugs
8. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Coming of Age is such a bore.
I usually try to avoid Malkmus, but Chartjunk is great. Thanks for starting this again.
I use iTunes as I am a big fan of smart playlists. I use spotify to check new stuff out and it ends up as a repository for stuff not worth adding to my library.
I discover new stuff here mainly....
Wow, nice work. I really like the color one.
Hey billy, you should take this /?user=01gmg6.j4 out of the link. That way we don't have to see your mediocre taste. ;) And what, not interested in anybody on Sunday?
Man, this festival is built for me. I'd like to see basically everything in the first 12 lines. If I wasn't broke, I'd be buying plane tickets.
Thanks for setting up the clashfinder again, Boourns. I find it incredibly helpful in doing my research. Knowing which are Yuma and Sahara acts, relative popularity, etc.
I'm not jazzed on the line up, but this is true.
