The great Texas psychedelic musician, genius behind the 13th Floor Elevators, acid case, and overall amazing and disturbed person Roky Erickson, RIP The Elevators also had one of the only Dylan covers that is better than the original, and I really like the original. Share

Memorial Day weekend is a good time for some music notes. I had the honor of seeing the amazing pianist Matthew Shipp perform on Friday, at Firehouse 12 in New Haven. I had seen him before, a solo sho

It’s been entirely too long since I did one of these posts. Since I published the last, I’ve seen three live shows. Most important is seeing Kris Kristofferson playing with The Strangers,

I don’t have anything particularly profound to say on music today. But we all need a break from the Mueller report and I have listened to a bunch of new albums recently, so it seems to be time for a music open thread, or really anything artistic. This is a largely outstanding profile of the […]

Back when I lived in Austin in the late 2000s, one of my favorite things to do was to see Alejandro Escovedo at the Continental Club. I probably saw him there 6 or 7 times in those three years. This w
