    Reverb

    The music of southern Louisiana has been described in many ways, but "progressive" isn't a word you often see thrown in the direction of the myriad zydeco and Cajun bands that set the region's culture and mores to music that ranges from reeling to ro...

    Accidents Will Happen

    The most interesting thing about ZZ Top is that on the surface there doesn't seem to be anything at all interesting about them. They've sold millions of records, lasted into their third decade, and continue to draw loyal herds no matter how their new...

    'Lectric Warriors

    Robert Price is not a happy man. At least not now. It's the day before his band Kreamy 'Lectric Santa is set to embark on a monthlong club tour that will take them through the South, across Texas, and up and down the West Coast from Los Angeles to Se...

    Farewell to the White Improvisers

    If you will, indulge me in these two recollections: (1) Sometime in the hot summer of 1993, three friends and I were sucking down beers at the local punk club in Memphis, Tennessee, a scummy little stinkpit called the Antenna. Between band sets a...

    Noise for Tots

    As grunge teeters on the brink of extinction, with Soundgarden hanging up its flannel, Nirvana but a lingering memory, and Pearl Jam a hermitish ensemble that will most likely call it quits, Australia's teenage power trio Silverchair is hoping to fig...

    Rotations

    The Notorious B.I.G. Life After Death (Bad Boy) Though the Notorious B.I.G.'s debut offered a portrait of rich potential snuffed by despair, Life After Death fights such despair hard, from beginning to end. This epic of an album begins wit...

    Forever on the Outside

    Jim Lauderdale calls them "recording-artist horror stories," and he can reel off a litany of them based on his own experiences as a singer/songwriter who's steeped in raw honky-tonk as well as blues, rock, soul, bluegrass, and R&B. "The longer I'm in...

    It has been in production far longer than I've called Miami home, but it appears the film East of Overtown is actually inching toward completion. After nearly seven years of snail's-pace production, this chronicle of the glory days of Overtown and th...

    A Righteous Babe

    Meritocracy is not a word that leaps to mind when I think about the music biz. Merit, after all, has never counted for much in the face of balls-out profiteering. Which is just one of the reasons I joined the cult of Ani DiFranco about four years ago...

    Into the Night

    With necessity being the mother of invention and the club circuit desperate to keep the kids coming, shiny and new one-nighters are popping up everywhere. The latest slew of theme parties runs the gamut of clubland with at least one option for everyb...

    Tito's Top Percussion

    The second-floor nightclub at Yuca restaurant on Lincoln Road is no ballroom; it's more of a low-ceilinged cocktail lounge. When Tito Puente and his big band played a brief set there last Thursday, the thirteen band members were tightly packed on the...

    What's Really in a Name

    Jim Dickinson does a great imitation of Bob Dylan. So great that it's impossible to convey in print just how the Memphis pianist/producer nails the nasally cadence of the master's oddball speech patterns. So let's just say it's something he picked up...

    Loaded Questions
