We’re back in Wisconsin and excited to end our weekend run with the 6th annual WSME Backyard BBQ at Cathedral Square Park! Others on the bill include, Jim Liban and the Joel Paterson Trio, Devil Met Contention, Pill Hill and headliner JD McPherson. The Backyard BBQ is free and open to the public so if you’re in or around Milwaukee come on out for a full day of music. The festival opens at 3, Dirty Bourbon hits at 8.
A few months back we stopped off at a small, makeshift recording studio in the newsroom of the Daily Camera, a news outfit in Boulder. Second Story Garage brings in local and national acts to come in to hang and play a few tunes, which they record and share with loads and loads of people online. It was a good time, and we’re happy to finally share with everyone what we laid down there.
A big thank you to everyone at Second Story – Ashley and Quentin, Duncan, Paul, Kaufman and Kevin – for having us over! Hope y’all enjoy!
It’s hump day folks, so lets take a look back in time to this freshly released early recording of The Clams and I, filmed December of last year in beautiful Bonita Springs, FL at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Feels like forever ago! Also, have you seen our latest music video for Animal? If not, hear ya go, and if so, show a friend or two!:
Happy hump day folks!
I’ve finally reached that point on the road where I’ve collected too many records and I have no more space for them in the van….oh well.
For this edition of BBR I’ve chosen a record from a little well known band called FUCKIN’ CREEDENCE ….actually it’s Creedence Clearwater Revival and the album is Cosmo’s Factory!
I picked up this album in a Salvation Army for maybe $2. I also bought a few VHS tapes for maybe $2 as well. It’s a good thing when you can find great things for hardly any money!
Tonight we’re rocking the walls in Flagstaff, AZ at The Green Room! Check it out!
We are delighted to be playing ATOMGA’s first full length album release show! Denver’s own 10 piece afrobeat orchestra strives to make authentic, groovin’, socially conscious music that will keep your mind as busy as your hips. Also gracing the stage, Denver’s own Human Agency and Pete Pidgeon & Arcoda! Join us all at the Bluebird Theater in Denver for an night of music to remember. Show starts at 9.
Hey y’all, it’s time for another edition of BBR.
Last week we played at the Continental Club in Houston, and across the street is a wonderful record shop – Sig’s Lagoon. They have vinyl everywhere and their prices are very good! So while searching through their stuff, I found a beauty….
That is New Orleans’ Sweet Emma and her Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Folks, this is the very first album Preservation Hall released, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s a live performance of the band recorded on October 18, 1964, at the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have to say that owning and reading through this album, I’ve become inspired for a new segment on the site. I haven’t yet thought of a name, but it’s about time I start sharing more about the history of my hometown and the people who’ve made it what it is now. Until then, please enjoy a cut from this record and be inspired!!
Tonight we’re partying in Grand Rapids, MI at the grand Founders Brewery! Showtime is 9pm, so get there early and get your taste buds going on their fine brew selection!
Chugging along and damn does it feel good y’all. We’re about halfway through this summer tour and things are better than ever!!
For this edition of BBR I’m pulling out Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66. Even if you haven’t heard this entire record, you’ve most definitely heard their hit version of Mas Que Nada!
and for those soccer fans out there…
See y’al there. Boots
