Janet Weiss leaving Sleater-Kinney is extremely depressing news, especially as while I have seen her play before, I have never actually seen S-K and will fix that problem on the fall tour. So I guess I will never see the classic band. She talks about the band going in new directions, but who knows what […]

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

Most important is seeing Kris Kristofferson playing with The Strangers, Merle Haggard’s old band, at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, Massachusetts. I had seen Kris once before, at an event in Santa Fe […]

If it’s Saturday night, it’s time to talk tunes. Now that The Paranoid Style’s Elizabeth Nelson is writing for LGM, it is even more ridiculous that I provide my pointless scribbling

My main music news this week was seeing Neko Case and Margaret Glaspy on Wednesday at the Columbus Theater in Providence. Hearing Neko sing is always a treat. That voice is just so, well, there aren&#

As usual when I am traveling overseas, I read a lot in Martinique. One of the books I read was Lester Bangs’ Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung.

I had the privilege of seeing Mdou Moctar in Providence last week. Representing a new generation of Tuareg guitarists that is more connected to world dance music than the tradition of the elders, this
