Jethro Tull

The platinum-wigged female string quartet has been conspicuously absent since 1974's Warchild tour, and the bassist who once sported a matching diagonal black and white striped suit and guitar has long since moved on.

Freeheat

Since the inglorious public demise of the Jesus and Mary Chain in 1998, when William Reid quit the band onstage in Los Angeles, the brothers Reid have gone their separate musical ways.

King’s X

There have been very few times in my life where I have been completely bowled over by a band's sound, music so special that it seemingly knocked you out of your seat.

Ian Brown: 25 Jun 2000: Bowery Ballroom — New York

Although John Squire might disagree - that there is life after the Stone Roses.

Primal Scream: 28 May 2000: Hammerstein Ballroom - New York

Six years later, Primal Scream are back.

Elliott Smith

As the show progressed, I couldn¹t help but notice that the set list consisted almost entirely of tracks from Figure 8

Ben Folds Five / Tracy Bonham

People at concerts are an interesting thing. There are people you don't know, people who look vaguely familiar, people you do know, people who look like people you know.

Matthew Sweet

For once, when an artist claimed to be happy to be spending the evening in D.C., the artist sounded wholly sincere, and not just because he apparently toured the White House earlier in the day.

Peter Murphy

's backing band received enthusiastic applause both when walking on stage and later as he was introduced with the rest of the band. He looked like the others: dark clothing, short, black, gelled hair with sideburns.

The Flatlanders

First launched into the public eye as a member of The Small Faces in the mid-1960s, Ian 'Mac' McLagan rode the wave through the band's Steve Marriott-led Mod years and the rockier Rod Stewart-Ronnie Wood incarnation (known simply as 'Faces').

Elliott Smith

The assembled Black Cat crowd trends much younger than I'd for whatever reason anticipated. The under-21 outnumbers the grownups by something like 3-1 or greater.

10th Annual Noise Pop Festival

High Sierra Music Festival Part 2 feat. Apollo Sunshine, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, The New Up, and Sh

High Sierra has its fair share of innocuous acts, sure, but in recent years the festival has also opened the door to some healthy aggression.


High Sierra Music Festival Part 1 feat. My Morning Jacket

You might well be on the road to Rivendell, Shangri-La, or maybe even Grandma's House.


Evolution—The Journey Tribute

Tribute acts are cover bands with sillier names -- the Achtung Babies or Fleetwood to the Max. They're music's C-list, sure, but can they really rock like the big boys?


Download Festival 2006 feat. Guns & Roses, Metallica, Tool, and Coheed and Cambria

Psychos, thieves, weirdos filling bottles with piss and throwing them into the crowd, this festival is not for boys in parachute pants. It's for metalheads.
