    The Write Job

    Among those devoted to the preposterous notion that they can support themselves by making music, the recitation of day jobs is a hallowed form of commiseration. At its worst this ritual comes off as a kind of macho bellyaching, a self-pity sword figh...

    Dancing with Dominicans

    A scratchy recording of a vaguely familiar tune plays in the small University of Miami classroom where Paul Austerlitz lectures to a handful of students on the social history of Caribbean music. As a man sings in phlegmy French over lilting guitar an...

    Generation Beck

    The late great rock critic Lester Bangs used to imagine what his records would say to one another if they could talk. Butted up against each other on his less-than-organized shelves, how would they get along? Like, what would Marvin Gaye's What's Goi...

    U2 Pop (Island) So this is the "next big thing" the music industry has been so desperately searching for? Hate to disappoint, but the U2 of Pop is emphatically still U2 -- underneath the electronic trickery, you can hear Bono's vocal idio...

    Doll Parts

    Scott Drake is old enough to remember a time when traditional high-energy rock and roll and guttural punk rock shared more than a little common ground -- when the squalling racket of the Damned, the Dead Boys, and the Vibrators revealed an obvious de...

    Musings of Muse

    Everything works out for the best when you just go with the flow, contends Muse vocalist Paul Isaac. A year after leaving Miami for Los Angeles to record its major label debut, Muse is finally prepared to meet the world with an album recorded in Atla...

    Since most rock critics are neither swamis nor gypsies, they really have no business predicting the future, whether it's the commercial faring of a new album or the direction an artist's career will or won't take. Nevertheless, the Miami Herald's pop...

    Talking Columbus Blues

    On the surface Columbus, Ohio, isn't very different from a lot of not-so-progressive midsize cities in the Midwest, from its long, hard winters and obsession with college sports to its myriad flourishing country-and-western bars. Dig a little deeper,...

    Since I do a lot of bitching and moaning about the largely pathetic live-music network in South Florida, where worthwhile touring acts are as rare as a Miami snowstorm, I think it's only fair to point out that there are several fine shows lined up th...

    Into the Night

    Enough of the crowds on South Beach. It's time for some decadent diversions in other parts of town. The Latin influence bleeds into North Miami when coffeehouse-cum-club the Grind (12573 Biscayne Blvd., 899-9979) hosts Descarga, a Latin open-mike nig...

    Crumby Punks

    Credibility is a tricky thing in rock and roll -- not because it's so hard to attain, but because it means different things to different people. Aficionados of punk and rap seem more obsessed than others with the concept of credibility, but there's a...
