O’Death and Pattern is Movement

January 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on O’Death and Pattern is Movement · By

O’Death and Pattern is Movement are playing at Gravity Lounge tonight. It looks like it should be a fun and worthwhile show. O’Death are, in the words of (former cville resident and Yer Bird records operator) Morgan King, the “Best. Band. Ever.” The T-Rock folks are excited about it too. They do an enthusiastic bluegrassy-punk […]

nice acoustic evening at Gravity Lounge

January 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on nice acoustic evening at Gravity Lounge · By

Some friends of mine are playing at Gravity Lounge this evening; you should go check it out.  Jameson Zimmer used to be in Love Tentacle Drip society, although his songs are mellower and less zany than you might expect from that band; Sam Bush co-runs The Garage and is in the Hill & Wood band, […]

January 27th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

You may have noticed that CvilleMuse has been dormant since the New Year… Shaun Harvey (the blog’s main contributor) wrote the other day to give me the scoop: “[…] cvilleMUSE is shutting down.  Too bad on my end, but I actually think it’s a good thing.  If you haven’t stopped by to check out my […]

4 years and running

January 25th, 2009 · 8 Comments · By

I just wanted to chime in and let you know that today is Nailgunmedia.com’s 4th anniversary. I actually started Nailgun on Blogger.com in June 2004, but things didn’t really get going until I transferred it over to its own domain name, on January 25, 2005. I really can’t express how much  gratitude I feel for […]

RS Hornsby & Gunchux

January 24th, 2009 · Comments Off on RS Hornsby & Gunchux · By

So I just found out that Gunchux are playing a memorial show tonight for RS Hornsby, their late guitarist. Jeyon writes: As you’ve probably heard, Gunchux guitarist (and nephew of musician Bruce Hornsby) R.S. Hornsby passed away tragically last Thursday evening in a car accident. We meant to note his passing earlier, but there was […]

a SOCK HOP! (and three other shows…)

January 24th, 2009 · Comments Off on a SOCK HOP! (and three other shows…) · By

There’s going to be a Sock Hop at McGuffey tonight! It starts at 10pm; the Rock&Roll Cannibals will be playing some old-time rockabilly stuff, and I will be DJing the corniest doo-wop songs, surf instrumentals, and melodramatic girl-group songs in my collection. It’s in McGuffey Studio #11 — I believe they’re requesting a small donation […]

Three shows, 11 bands, and a dance festival

January 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

There’s a TON of stuff going on in the near future, including three shows tonight: Birdlips are playing at IS, along with The Never and Tokyo. The Never are from Chapel Hill, and Tokyo (confusingly enough) are from Virginia Beach. Cliff (I think) says: “We saw the Never live a little while back and they […]

soul music in general, Otis Redding in particular

January 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

I was driving around looking for a place to eat after I got off of work last night, and I turned on WTJU just as Mike began to play a live recording of Otis Redding performing “Try a Little Tenderness.” The performance is totally phenomenal and astonishing and it caught me completely off-guard. Maybe it’s […]

link to a feminist defense of Yoko Ono

January 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on link to a feminist defense of Yoko Ono · By

 The other day I stumbled across this five-part blog post, which is an in-depth examination of the popular vilification of Yoko Ono, and which is well worth your time. I grew up a huge Beatles fan — it’s pretty much all I listened to until age 13 — and for a period of time, I […]
