Le DISQUE DU LUNDI

March 31st, 2014 · 4 Comments · By

White Noise // An Electric Storm (Island Records, 1969) I would like to pay homage today to an album enshrined as one of my all time favorites, which I spent years seeking for my personal collection, and which has now spent 4 months on my wall (for sale) without finding a home. This is admittedly […]

March 29th, 2014 · 2 Comments · By

Great local line-up at Tea Bazaar tonight, including the first appearance of Order of the Dying Orchid‘s dead-then-reborn-like-the-phoenix as New Boss. New Boss (née Order) performs material that perhaps originated in Lynchburg, Virginia, when I was in middle school! They’ve been around a while, with an historic line-up, the alumni network numbering in the high […]

Continuing Main St Annex’s reasonably priced, and will-most-likely-be-awesome shows: Charlottesville’s own Big Air places tonight with two Brooklyn bands.

March 18th, 2014 · Comments Off on TONIGHT: MIAMI NIGHTS, NU DEPTH and NYMPH at MAIN ST ANNEX · By

At the Main St Annex (across the street from Sidetracks) is an intense hardcore/far-out line-up that should be real fun, and it’s $6! Miami Nights is Charlottesville’s own Max Katz (of USAISAMONSTER), who may or may not be a Nordic royalty from the 15th century that began a life of pirating to alleviate the ennui […]

Last Saturday as the weather had improved and the onset of spring was evident, 2 musicians (and their […]

La CHANSON DU LUNDI

March 10th, 2014 · Comments Off on La CHANSON DU LUNDI · By

Love letters // Metronomy OK, so it may just be my love of contradiction that chose this song…but a famous music blog disparaged this album today when I’d really liked it. The postman who hand-delivers my mail to the shop each day has often lamented the deteriorating quality of what he carries, and it’s a […]
