Opening is Hanni El Khatib , who will be performing material off his forthcoming debut "Will the Guns Come Out." The free show in the museum’s courtyard kicks [...]
There was a period in the late 1970s when it seemed like everyone was fascinated by all things Egyptian - especially anything related to King Tut. The long-gone 'boy pharaoh' Tutankhamun was by most reports a fairly minor figure in Egyptian history but as one of the few whose artifacts survived the attention of grave-robbers, his name had already become a familiar one. When the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened a three-year exhibit of his trinkets in 1976, King Tut became a sensation. Meanwhile, comedian Steve Martin was building his fame with regular appearances on TV's [...]
Tweet It's been a hot three minutes since we last heard from Dominant Legs , the side project of Girls' guitarist Ryan Lynch. Almost a year ago to the second, they released their debut EP "Young At Love And Life" , a shimmering little spectacle of infectious Indie-Pop jams, like Washed Out covering The Bangles with Belle And Sebastian as the backing band. There's not much been said by or about the band since last summer and the [...]
Regular readers know: Falcon Ridge Folk Festival is my home away from home, my happy place. An oasis amidst lush green farmland, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Hillsdale, NY, its four stages, dance tents, camping areas and vast vendor zones rise from the mist each summer to take over the alfalfa fields of Dodd's Farm, where they serve as much as 15,000 visitors with a cornucopia of music, food, fun and friendship. This will be our fourteenth year volunteering at Falcon Ridge. In that time, my wife and I, [...]

Here’s a pretty odd track, but it really works.

Mashing up their own song "Gold In The Fire" and the Bangles classic and not-to-be-messed-with "Eternal Flame", the boys of Monarchy use only a bit of piano and their harmonious voices to make an actually good interpretation of both songs, making the listener instantly want to go back and listen to both pieces of source [...]
In honor of Prince's never-ending shows at the Forum , I decided to rekindle this old post from the old blog. Below are my Top Prince songs of all time. This was 1 of the hardest compilations 2 make as I had 2 narrow it down so much. I had over at least 60 songs that I wanted on it, from various mixes & not 2 mention all his b-sides, but I had 2 make it shorter. All songs below were written by the Purple one (with the exception to Waterfalls [...]

[Chaos was running rampant in Austin on St. Patrick's Day (at SXSW ) and as I made my through the obliterated, my aching feet reluctantly carried me through a revival of musical styles from the past for the day. Thus, the obvious choice for my evening was some classic, straight-up pop.] Smoosh (Cedar Street Courtard) — It was seven years ago that Asya and Chloe met mentor [...]
SXSW is a great place for a band to go to generate buzz at the beginning of their career. It's also a great place for a band that was once on the top of the universe, but isn't anymore, and is looking for a career resurgence. Many of these bands at one point in time [...]

Yo Egypt, big ups! Egypt is finally on its way to finding peace again, and Bassnectar drops this banger on our heads. I love it. The song actually dates back to 2003 but Bassnectar (Lorin Ashton) just released it for download. Perfect timing. Download: The Bangles - "Walk like an Egyptian" Bassnectar Remix
So here's a little present from Bassnectar in spirit of the Egyptian current affairs. He actually made this remix all the way back in 2003 and just blasted out the download now. It's a pretty sick trippy sounding remix. It's got that Bassnectar unqiue bass, and an overall chilled out feel. Took me about a minute to get into it. Turn up the bass for this one. Enjoy! Be sure to catch Bassnectar headlining Day 2 of The Snow Ball Music Festival, more info here Walk Like An Egyptian (Bassnectar Remix) [...]
