Three questions? Where two out of the three responses don't even answer the question asked?
I may be biased, but Chris McCune (also of the bands Locks And Dams, October, Bear Skull and Knife) is the best drummer in Pittsburgh.
Great article. About a group mainstream would usually not know of or recognize. Each of the members are talented musicians who has come together for art. As in every piece of art it is all about the beholder but still quality art. Good luck guys, you have been true to your vision.
Saw these guys in cleveland with the meatmen. They Killed.
and yes I got angry and wrote all about it on my Facebook page anyone who says this is the worst fucking show of any of Todds shows might as well get there left foot off of the banana peel shoot themselves in the head after the grave they already dug cuz there are fuddy duddies.
saw the show of this tour in Chicago on Wednesday and purposely didn't listen to the album first. All I can say is it was absolutely fantastic and if you think you're a Todd fan because you like things he did years ago but don't want to follow his evolution, then you might want to just admit you'd rather stay stuck in the past.
Been a fan of Todd's work since 1970. Love that his creativity and curiosity has always moved him forward and he didn't become a cover band of himself.
I love Global and the live performance is exceptional. Todd is being painfully honest with his lyrics and some folks might not want to hear what he has to say, but it's the truth and it would be wise to listen.
I was a fan and this album has alienated me with his lyrics and the his electronic sound.
Great article. Saw the Mavericks in Hamilton ON. It was a magical sound experience!! Thx.
"The festival, organized by local concert promoter Josh Bakaitus," im sorry but i think you mean Drusky Entertainment. I realise Drusky can't attach his name to things from fear of a boycott after his racist remarks. But come on CP at least do the right thing and don't be deceitful.
Crowdfunding is the future for musicians and there's one specific crowdfunding platform that helps musicians and their fan base make an impact by supporting a cause that they love, its called Noise4Good...take a look http://jamsphere.com/news/call-to-action-noise4good-empowers-musicians-and-their-fans-to-make-an-impact
Lets put the best on one stage! Sounds like a City Paper sponsored event.
Also as for bringing back the funk and alternative spaces.
in 2014 I used a city parks pavilion for Pittonkatonk, an abandoned lot (Bayardstown Social Club), and a plant nursery (Shadyside Nursery) for events.
I try to create events that cross musical genres and build a diverse night of entertainment at the Weather Permitting Series. The problem is we have sound restrictions that limit the types of music we can have. As Pandemic (voted best dance party by 2014 CP) I produce dance parties that often times include live bands that are acoustic (i.e. Raya Brass Band, Timbeleza, May Day Marching Band, Lungs Face Feet, Pitchblack, Detroit Party Marching Band, etc). I'd love to see more of this happening around the city. On Feb 21 I'm working on a show at Brillobox featuring The Pressure, Beauty Slap, and Grand Piano. That's 3 bands with horns that are from totally different genres.
Alicia Spagnola steals her music from others. She was FIRED from the Ice Crew and one phone call would have confirmed that if the author of this article would have bothered. She will fail in LA because she will quit when it gets too hard for her to stay sober. She is an alcoholic trainwreck and has many nudes on the internet.
Amerika the Free! You can use other people's media and entertain drunks and be famous! You go girrrrrrl! What's not to praise? God forbid we give our soldiers such applause!!!
Ali stole 90% of all her music and is an alcoholic. Why are you people giving this trainwreck a free pass???
Ali, I love your energy and your creativity, there's a place for you in how you can inspire people to do what they love. You go girl!
Holy crap! This is awesome. All my love and best wishes for your new adventures in LA!! Never stop being amazing! :) - Jenny
