An Intimate Presentation of ‘Supernova’ with Ray LaMontagne: 2 May 2014 - New York

Grammy-winning, bearded folk singer Ray LaMontagne seemed to be quietly relishing his newfound, extroverted musical persona on stage at New York's Town Hall, even when words seemed to fail him.

The group's deep grasp of Americana and classic rock makes Widespread Panic one of the modern music world’s greatest curators of American music history.

Nickel Creek + The Secret Sisters: 29 April 2014 - Beacon Theatre, New York (Photos)

News about Nickel Creek's new release A Dotted Line might have been drowned out by the fact the band is back together and celebrating their 25th anniversary.

Area: 11 April 2014 - London

The passing time has left the band’s musicianship untouched, so much so that one could be forgiven for occasionally thinking that, outside, on the now dark streets of London, the IRA is still planting car bombs.

Lettuce: 27 March 2014 - Solana Beach, CA

Influences like James Brown, Funkadelic, Maceo Parker and the Meters are just the tip of the iceberg for Lettuce, with various psychedelic and classic rock vibes being mixed in too.

Dionne Farris + The Russell Gunn Quartet: 10 April 2014 - New York

Exploring jazz with the Russell Gunn Quartet, Dionne Farris is clearly in full bloom.


Friday, April 18 2014

Miley Cyrus + Sky Ferreira: 5 April 2014 - Brooklyn, NY

Miley Cyrus's performance is not a sexed-up act, but a manifestation of her bad-ass, "female rebel" persona.

The Jen Chapin Trio Live at the Bohemian Caverns

The wonderful folk-soul-jazz singer plays a classic jazz club at the start of her tour. If only more people were hearing this music!

Arcade Fire: 18 March 2014 - Bridgeport, CT (Photos)

Arcade Fire, and their split personality the Reflektors, ended the first leg of their 2014 world tour with a party in Connecticut.

Nona Hendryx: 8 March 2014 - New York

Eight laptops, more than two dozen musicians, three hours of genre-defying music, and one dynamic performer swimming through a “sea of possibilities”? It must be a Nona Hendryx show.


Friday, March 14 2014

King’s X: 28 February 2014 - Ramona, CA

King’s X appears destined to remain an under-the-radar secret for their loyal fans, but no one’s complaining about still getting to see the band up close and personal.

The New York Philharmonic’s ‘Sweeney Todd’ Truly Earns Its Standing Ovations

The New York Philharmonic's resurrection of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, starring Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson, proves to be one of the most delightfully wicked evenings of theater in recent memory.


White Denim: 9 February 2014 - San Diego

The dynamic quartet can rock your socks off, but their sound is hard to categorize with its blend of prog-rock riffage, fuzzy blues, Southern soul and melty psychedelia.


Thursday, February 13 2014

Killswitch Engage: 29 January 2014 – Dublin, Ireland

The first gig of a tour can sometimes mean the band will sound a bit blunt around the edges, but not even severe jetlag can put a stop to Killswitch Engage.


Tuesday, February 11 2014

Mayim Bialik: 30 January 2014 - Morehead, KY

Bialik isn’t the typical Hollywood actress. There’s the Ph.D. in neuroscience, for instance.


Monday, February 10 2014

Tea Leaf Green: 30 December 2013 - Denver

Tea Leaf Green keeps jamming on year after year because this is a band that is indeed all about the music. That passion comes out in the tunes and the live shows, and it’s what keeps the group’s dedicated fan base coming back for more.
