LIVE REVIEW: Tame Imapala – St. Andrew’s Hall – Detroit – 3/7/13

While much of Tame Impala’s sophomore album Lonerism focuses on feelings of solitude and desolation, Kevin Parker and company were anything but alone at St. Andrew’s Hall on Thursday night.

Showstopper ’11: Cut Copy – Masquerade (3/28/11)

photo courtesy of the co-King of Pops Considering it was a Monday night show, I can’t imagine too many other bands who could have got the Masquerade rowdy like Cut Copy did.

Traveling JayeL Hats/Dawaun Parker “Lost”

Showstopper '09: 8/7/09 – Vonnegutt – The Masquerade

My own personal music fest continued Friday, when Laura and I headed to the Masquerade for Round 2 of Kyle Lucas and Vonnegutt. There was some confusion as to when the band’s set would take place, but it gave me a chance to check out The Status. After a great set by The Status, Vonnegutt […]

Girl Talk: The Live Bootleg Collection

There was quite a response from my post about the latest Girl Talk live bootleg, Live at Yale.  So much in fact that, track 6 (“I’m Ill) was the most popular song on the Hype Machine for a day (yes, if I had glasses, I would push them up now).  A pretty big deal for […]
