No Depression is folding [19 Feb 2008|02:02pm]

The print version of No Depression is calling it quits. The May/June issue will be the last. According to a letter posted on ND's site, they will continue to publish online.

Can't say I'm surprised, but it's still too bad to see them go.

New music.. [17 Dec 2007|01:56pm]


Hi all, I'm a 28 yr old amateur musician testing the waters to see if anyone digs my music. If you like Sufjan Stevens, Richard Buckner, and older folk-rock you might like my stuff!

i'm sure most of you are looking forward to upcoming Split Lip Rayfield and/or Scroat Belly shows, but for the meantime, things are looking pretty slim.

the boys of SLR did a 4 show, 6-day week, last week, that wore them out. kirk, especially. he will have to catch up on some much needed rest, and for the meantime, shows will be put on hold until further notice.

if you are hoping to purchase tickets for upcoming shows, or already have, please check your local listings for updated information in the near future.

chicago, empty bottle, 1-13-07 [14 Jan 2007|05:57pm]

scroat belly show!
the show was, of course, completely awesome. kirk looks good and jeff was there too, selling very cool merch. wayne = just amazing. woa.
the opening band was also good - devil in a woodpile - which i guess plays all the time downtown but i've never heard of them before. i'll have to go to one of their wednesday night shows because they were really good.
goodies i got were the *new* Split Lip Rayfield CD (best of) which has some awesome tracks on it including BISCUITS (makes me smile) and the Scroat Belly 1995 re-master.

next for me is Drakkar Sauna - not sure if that fits the screendoor genre - that's the 21st.

NYE show at Subterranian, Chicago with Th' Legendary Shack Shakers was pretty darn tasty. The openers, The Saps, were not to my liking but I wouldn't say they were awful. The 2nd opener, Scott H Birham, http://www.scottbiram.com/, rocked it out for quite a while, nearly taking the 5-4-3-2-1-woo from the Shack Shakers. I picked up one of his CD's which I haven't listened to yet, but I pretty much liked the sounds he was making. The Shack Shakers opened up with the NYE Countdown, we threw some cheap champagne around, and then they got into it. The 'crowd' cleared out at about 12:30 am - it was a small venue and not at all a big turnout - but everyone who stayed on to the end seemed to have a delightful time (those who didn't pass out, vomit, or loose their glasses anyway). I will admit, i wimped out and stayed about 20 feet away from the stage - if you've seen the Shack Shakers you know why.
No pics, unfortunatley, though i did get the face of the 'countdown' clock after it was smashed and thrown into the audience.

Next for me is the Scroat Belly show on 1/13/06.
Also, new Split Lip Rayfield shows have been added for the midwest - and a DVD is supposedly in the works.

I'd like to recommend Leslie and the Badgers.


They're my favorite alt-country band out today, and my wife's.

And Leslie's a sweetheart.
