Dance and Music Improvisations

June 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on Dance and Music Improvisations · By

One of my favorite Tea House employees, Cindy Leal, will be showing off her prodigious dancing skills at her place of work tonight.  She will be performing with other dancers and talented musicians, and I’ll be working the door (cause that’s what in-house roadies do).  So come by and enjoy what promises to be an […]

Super-Fun Dance-time Monday!

June 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments · By

Fun show at the Tea Bazaar tomorrow evening. I think I fairly nailed my description of Athens, GA’s Ear Pwr in an earlier write-up: Ear Pwr are probably the twee-est damn thing I’ve ever heard. Which is surprisingly great. They’ve just embraced the thing and run with it like crazy. With ridiculously adorable delivery and […]

DJing stuff for summertime

June 28th, 2009 · Comments Off on DJing stuff for summertime · By

I finally got around to posting the playlists for the two WTJU shows I did last weekend; my substitute sit-in session on the Garage Sale, which apparently many people heard and enjoyed, and my special Summer Solstice edition of the Madame Psychosis Hour, which apparently nobody heard nor enjoyed (though I thought it was the […]

a busy Friday

June 26th, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

There are quite a few cool things on tonight — First of all, there’s an art opening at Try&Make. It’s put together by my friends Ashley Florence and Heidi Tullmann, and it features art by the two of them as well as Lisa Kittell, Sarah Jean Simmons, Meg Hamilton, and Isabella Scott (who will also […]

Michael Jackson

June 25th, 2009 · 12 Comments · By

Well, apparently Michael Jackson‘s dead. They’re reporting it as a heart attack. I’m always had weirdly mixed feelings about Jackson — on the one hand, he was clearly a victim of abuse and what might charitably be described as a unhealthy upbringing, and appeared at most times to be more or less completely insane. Yet […]

There are two house shows going down tonight as well as the Pattern Is Movement show at the Tea Bazaar (I’ll be working  the door for the Tea Bazaar show…and, no, this does not mean I can let you all in for free.  Sorry.) There is a surf punk basement show going down; it was […]

Pattern is Movement w/ Drunk Tigers

June 23rd, 2009 · 2 Comments · By

Hopefully I’ve earned enough cred over the past couple days with really phenomenal back-to-back shows at The Garage and The Bridge (–To anybody who skipped those, you seriously missed out!–), that you’ll trust me when I say Wednesday night the Tea Bazaar is the place to be. Pattern is Movement is a duo (previously a five-then-four-then-three piece) that […]

Emperor X at The Bridge

June 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

First off, a special shout out to last weekend. Charlottesville, you’re really killing it these days. The show at iS on Saturday was all-around great, with a single caveat– the sound, which is supposed to be iS’ strong suit, was awfully muddy all night, so that was fairly disappointing. And believe me, I think I […]
