Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff is many things: a poet, an artist, a traveler, a feminist, and a musician. When she first started out playing in New Orleans, the only thing she could play was a washboard. Now, she plays guitar, banjo, harmonica, writes her own songs, and recently released her […]

On the Verge: Heathers

When I first heard Heathers – the twin duo of Ellie and Louise Macnamara – sing, I had flashbacks to high school, to the girls who sang the National Anthem games and sang in the hallway to the four chord strumming of the guy who stole your first girlfriend. The teen angst that has never […]

“Voices” by Phantogram

Things aren’t always what they seem. Take a phantogram for example. By definition, a phantogram is an optical illusion that plays with depth and distortion to make a two-dimensional object appear three-dimensional. The male-female duo that makes up Phantogram plays with the very same perspective on their latest album, Voices. Hailing from upstate New York, musicians Sarah […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

“Spielberg doesn’t know how to use any ambiguity,” Blitzen Trapper guitarist Brian Koch said on the topic of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. “Its like a Scooby Doo ending where they take the bad guy’s mask off and he’s like, ‘ I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids!’” Luckily […]

Sporting everything from patchy overalls and purple hair to simple sweatshirts and baseball caps, people lined […]

St. Paul & The Broken Bones Live In Studio

St. Paul & The Broken Bones Live In Studio

The soulful powerhouse St. Paul & The Broken Bones was kind enough to stop by the WERS studio this afternoon to play a couple tunes off their new record, Half The City.  Surrounded by gospel and 70’s soul, lead singer Paul Janeway began the band out of his hometown of Chelsea, Alabama. Exposed to the Pentecostal […]

Lake Street Dive Live at Royale

A large spread of instruments populated the stage, something akin to Arcade Fire’s extensive collection, illuminated by soft pink and blue lights, that created a very groovy atmosphere. I felt like the only young person in the room surrounded by a mainly middle aged crowd. The lights dimmed, and Ages and Ages took the stage – […]
