Being in Japan has meant I haven’t seen any live music. Now, it’s not that I couldn’t, but I don’t really know the Japanese scene very well and I am very tired by the evenings. So this seems like a great time to deep another deepish dive on one of my favorite albums. Let’s look […]

While in the South on my music tour a couple of weeks ago, I ran into a bunch of random music museums that of course I had to stop at. While I first started the trip in Memphis, I didn’t go to S

Last weekend, I had the tremendous pleasure of seeing a really great music festival plus other music related ridiculousness. Next week’s post will discuss the music museums I visited. This week,

I watched Summer of Soul recently. I don’t per se know if it is such an amazing piece of work that it was the obvious Academy Award winner; some of that was certainly it ticking certain boxes and the performances are what carries it. But the commentary was useful too. I did think at times […]

I was lucky enough to see my 22nd Drive By Truckers show at the Royale in Boston last Thursday. It was also the last day of classes for me until September, which made the show doubly awesome. Making i

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to see the Jon Irabagon Quartet at Firehouse 12 in New Haven. It’s not quite Firehouse 12, somehow this amazing club is actually going through renovations to make

I saw the Colombian-Canadian artist Lido Pimienta two weeks ago at Brighton Music Hall in Boston. She’s a pretty good artist and a pretty good act too. Not my very favorite, but I was certainly glad to see her. Pimienta’s fans love her very much and it’s always great to see a show in front […]

Meant to get this out last Saturday. I did not get it done. So this is good enough I guess. I saw Parquet Courts at the Royale in Boston last Thursday. It was good, though not great, and I think that

I saw The Regrettes on Thursday night at Sessions in Eugene, Oregon. It’s the rare time that I am at a conference and there’s a club across the street from the conference hotel with a band

I think I should start this edition of Music Notes by saying that I am consistently embarrassed about the low quality of these posts given the many music writers and critics in the LGM community. Elizabeth of course is a great music writer (not to mention guitarist and songwriter and singer and general rock star) […]

Music serves many functions in our lives. It’s for dancing, probably more than anything else. It’s a conduit to sex. It’s for ritual. It’s for protest, outrage, anger, love. It

This week’s musical highlight was seeing Waxahatchee play at the Columbus Theatre in Providence. This was my 4th time seeing Waxahatchee. Like with Jason Isbell, who I used to see in small Texas
