A Plea For Purging – A Critique of Mind and Thought

Anyone who includes the lyrics, “raise your glasses high,” is probably someone I can get along with. Nashville-based A Plea For Purging may not have the most appetizing name, but they certainly display a keen prowess for metal guitar riffing and amazingly steady backbeats. Some of these songs definitely belong on the newest edition of…

Racoon – Another Day

Although the four-member band Racoon is Dutch, they can best be described as a band you’d see performing in an Irish or English pub encouraging sing-a-longs. The group consists of Bart van der Weide on vocals, Dennis Huige on guitar, Stefan de Kroon on bass, and Paul Bukkens on drums. The band mingles folk rock…

The Bravery and Incubus Concert

The Bravery and Incubus – West Palm Beach, FL : 8/29/2007 Sound Advice Amphitheater The Bravery has been branded a Cure cover band; with some critics discrediting their relevance in bitter prose. I think this is dismissive of a band that exhibits real talent through energetic synth-punk songs and an invigorating stage presence. The band…

Oodles of Bands – Oodle.com BandTracker

I think everyone has been through this scenario: get wrapped in your busy life, forget to check for area shows or concerts and then miss one of your favorite bands when they make it to your city. Damn. That has happened to me more often than I would care to mention. The problem is the…

Cry Me A River Okkervil

Here is another reason Austin is dubbed the music capital of the world. The band Okkervil River. Superb indie rockers with their banging drums, and plucky chords serving as background to lead singer Will Sheff’s anguished vocals. It’s cling-clang indie pop that epitomizes the forlorn teenage squalor of a John Hughes fillm. Listen and love.…

Kweller and Fite at Culture Room

Hello Last night was the Tim Fite and Ben Kweller show in Fort Lauderdale. It was some real good times. Unfortuntely we missed Fite’s set. Total bummer! We got there at 10 PM and he had gone on at 9. Dammit I do hate when that happens; with me it seems to able all too…
