Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, the four musicians that form the entity entitled Paris certainly have a fascinating story to share. Upon meeting in 2009 while partaking in a previous musical affair, vocalist and guitarist Lynn Gunnulfsen and drummer Brad Griffin soon met eye to eye on one thing: something didn’t feel quite right…more

Come join us for a free screening of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. “In this visual riff on Pink Floyd’s album “The Wall,” successful but drugged-out musician Pink (Bob Geldof) is looking back on his isolated childhood from the confines of a Los Angeles hotel room. Through a swirl of flashbacks and chemical-induced hallucinations, Pink recalls his lonely upbringing, during which he built a symbolic wall to the world as he coped with the death of his father (James Laurenson) and the overbearing ways of his mother (Christine Hargreaves).” Bring your favorite movie snack and show up early for our $2.50 anything Happy Hour from 6pm-9pm and our special of the night is $2.50 any beer. 21+ event. VJ Todzilla will be playing your favorite 80’s music videos and requests right after.

See her perform at Gruene Hall for two Harriet Tubmans.

  
Friday Night.  

Doors open at 7:00 with Buick6 opening.  The dynamic Ms. Williams begins at 9.

Lucinda Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades now, emerging from Lake Charles, Louisiana, where her iconoclastic upbringing helped her forge the stunning Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album). Somehow, that milestone 1988 set eventually disappeared from shelves, but was reissued 25 years later, as a deluxe edition that garnered unanimous acclaim — including Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailing it by calling it “A perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the heart or make it soar.” For much of the ‘90s, Lucinda moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect inside the industry – as borne out by the Grammy afforded Mary-Chapin Carpenter’s interpretation of Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.” While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that did was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism – like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her a second Grammy Award. Over the next decade, she crafted such classic sets as West (2007), and Blessed (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” Lucinda credits the injection of vitality and passion that emerged in part to Tom Overby, her partner in both life and music, who’s acted as both a sounding board and collaborator, contributing production ideas and offering encouragement to forge forward in directions that she might not have otherwise explored. That creative connection has grown increasingly electric over the years, as borne out by 2014’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which won the 2015 Americana Music Association Award for Album of the Year. On February 5th, Lucinda Williams will release her 12th studio album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, which gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life.

He’ll be at Sam’s Burger Joint this Thursday, April 14th promoting his newest cd “Untold Stories”. I told him he’s still an honorary Texan even though he hails from Finland.  He’s been providing South Texas with his Texopean style for well over 18 years and calls his north side Say Town residence ‘home’ when he’s not tearing it up in Europe and Asia.  He’s on lists that also include names like “Clapton” and “Pink Floyd” and is sponsored by Gibson GLOBALLY.  Musical street creds? 💯

I missed his previous appearance at Sam’s Burger Joint last year and literally would writhe in pain when people gushed about his performance.  Get your tickets early.  He dabbles with time signatures that use the number 7 in the denominator.  Comprendé?

You kinda have to hear it to understand.

Thanks for the coffee, the excellent music and the faith, Señor Tuominen.

…and no, I’m not Black Coffee but that’s an awesome band/stage name.  

That’s RAT RANCH and they have already started doing what they do.

  

Soooo, I’ve been a minute or a thousand.  I apologize but the gauntlet has been thrown and I’ve accepted the ASP.Net challenge.  I spent the entire weekend held up in my little home office, mainly debugging.  Stay tuned for tales of the new collaboration widget for musicians and my scalable musician site complete with a MySQL backend that almost looks as good as mine…

…almost.

Those of you who know my love and adoration for anything and everything vegan may scoff at this post.  I just really like the atmosphere at Zombie’s.  It’s swimming in non-pretentiousness.  I like that.  I like that a lot.

Ran into Terry Anderson…he’s still a rock god!

  

sherlockslogoSherlocks still has not lost its green clover charm.  The Max will be floating the good times tonight and tomorrow night for those of you who like a Double-Shot of party.  Both the entertainment and the venue are “tried and true”.  Guaranteed good time.


thefallsThis iconic San Antonio act is coming back together to show us what music-making is all about.  The Falls will be packed to the gills with people who wish to step back in time and remember hard-rock the way it is supposed to be.  It will be cold tonight but I doubt anyone will care with all of those hot beats going on.

It’s going to be a good night.
