Chicago’s Lollapalooza Expands to New Countries

Chicago’s Lollapalooza Expands to New Countries

Chicago’s Lollapalooza might have been given a run for its money this year with the storm evacuations, but they still keep dreaming big, now adding multiple locations for Lollapalooza 2013. Founder Perry Farrell wants to hold a Lollapalooza in not only Chicago next year, but Israel, Brazil, and Chile as well. Seeing that these new […]

Chicago’s Lollapalooza Evacuated

Chicago’s Lollapalooza Evacuated

I’m sure most music fans wish they could be at Lollapalooza. However, I doubt they would elect to be there this Saturday when severe storms in Chicago forced the festival to be put on hold and the crowd to evacuate. Not necessarily a day of music-loving fun. The festival orchestrators urged attendees to take refuge in underground evacuation […]

Brandi Carlile and Josh Ritter Live

Brandi Carlile and Josh Ritter Live

Brandi Carlile’s fifth and latest album, which came out in June and is titled Bear Creek, is different than her previous four in a couple different ways. She and her band recorded it in a studio close to their home and produced it themselves. Trina Schumaker worked as an engineer on the album, as well, […]

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me”

Let’s be honest; a tribute album is really easy to get wrong. Whether it be The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit or Harptallica: A Tribute, fans who are musicians themselves can easily get carried away in their enthusiasm for another artist and miss the feel and excitement of the music altogether. Fortunately, that is not […]

This Week In Music History

“One Lovely Day” by Citizen Cope

“One Lovely Day” by Citizen Cope

Clarence Greenwood is at it again, producing yet another completely likeable album that will translate excellently on stage. In 2010 he ditched major labels altogether and independently recorded and produced The Rainwater LP under his own label, Rainwater Recordings. One Lovely Day, his new full-length album released only two years later, is quite the feat […]

Throwback Thursday: Garth Hudson, The Band

Throwback Thursday: Garth Hudson, The Band

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we’re celebrating Garth Hudson’s birthday with a set of songs from The Band. It probably would not be hard to argue that among most circles there’s at least a few members of The Band – Levon Helm, Robbie Robertson, and Rick Danko, at least – who are better known than […]
