Kick Ass Scott H. Biram Live Review, Wherein a journalist eats his words!

We just love it when a music writer goes to a show with a pre-conceived notion of somebody and proceeds to have his mind blown AND he or she fesses up to it!

Check out this conversion experience of a writer in Phoenix at a recent Scott H Biram show.

Scott talks about his "special" way of playing Led Zeppelin covers.  NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!  Shield the eyes of children.  Read it HERE.

Jack White plays with Dex Romweber at Jack's new Record store!

The dynamic Dex Romweber Duo played a smash instore at Jack White's Third Man Records in Nashville last night for 250+ excited fans. No less than country legend Charlie Louvin amongst the throng.

Mr. White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather himself kicked things off with an introduction and fiesty acoustic rendition of "You Don't Love Me  Anymore" from Dex's Flat Duo Jets days (check out the original on the classic 1993 FDJ platter, "White Trees...." It could not possibly come with a higher recommendation.)

Their as-always explosive performance is set to be nigh-instantaneously pressed up on wax and ready for sale (ain't technology grand?) We hope to have some to sell through our web store soon.

Seems most of the folks that came out to Jack White's pad must've liked what they heard, as there was a damn-near sold out show at The Basement later that night as well!

Stay tuned for further details on the vinyl, and where you'll be able to see footage of this momentous occasion!

Some Excellent and Informative Exene Cervenka Interviews and Press

Given the overwhelming volume of crapola out there on the intertubes, it's nice when writers take some time to craft their pieces rather than just posting snarky, ill-informed diary entries and calling it "journalism."  In our efforts to encourage such behavior, we'll point them out when we can.

We got a couple nice ones in this week about Exene Cervenka, as she is on tour with the Dex Romweber Duo (and boy, as a long time fan of both, this tickles my music-geek sweetspots).  So, sit back and enjoy!

From Creative Loafing in Atlanta: "Unless you're a dictator and you're going to play all of the instruments yourself, it's best to let people come up with some surprising things that you wouldn't normally think of."   Read it all HERE.

From the Houston Press in, well, Houston, comes THIS interview where she talks about TX punk legends the Big Boys, the death of Amy Farris, and the origins of her album Somewhere Gone.

Bloodshot Rob making soup for charity!

Every Wednesday during the winter months, the blog Soup and Bread hosts a soup party at the Hideout.  From 5:30 to 8, eat soup, drink beer, see friends and be convivial.  The event is free, but donations are very welcome and all donations go to various food pantries in the city to help alleviate hunger--this week it is the Franciscan Outreach.

This week, Bloodshot Rob and a few other cooks  are contributing some nifty little concoctions and will be ladling them out to the soup lover that resides in all of us.

Rob will not tell us what he is making, but promises it will have nothing to do with all the haggis he has been making us eat this week for the Scottish holiday Burns Night.




Justin Townes Earle + Levon Helm = C-O-O-L

Check out this piece wherein Justin recounts playing with the Band's Levon Helm.  That's right LEVON f****** HELM!

Here's a snippet:

Q: "You just played at one of Levon Helm's "Midnight Rambles" at his home in Woodstock, New York. What was it like playing with such a legend of contemporary Southern music? "

A: "I got to sit in Levon Helms parlor and watch football with him before the show, and I got to sing the first verse of "The Weight" with him playing drums. It was one of those nights I will absolutely never forget — definitely the highlight of my career by far. I'm such a Band dork that it was like no one else in that room mattered but Levon Helm. I could have touched him with my elbow while watching him play drums, he was so close to me. It was just one of the coolest things ever."
