[FOLK POP] Over seven years of watching Laura Veirs grow from humble-but-driven independent songwriter to internationally acclaimed recording artist (still almost as humble and just as driven), I've been faced with the recurring challenge of how to render her singular appeal into prose. My first attempt was a ...   More

Gerald Collier, Saturday, June 2


[ALT-COUNTRY] Even in this sequel-happy world, true stories don't often get a second chance at a happy ending. And singer-songwriter Gerald Collier's hard-luck story is a tale as old as the music business itself: Boy meets band; boy and band make beautiful music; boy and band get signed; record label folds and...   More

RICHMOND FONTAINE, Thirteen Cities (Union Records)


[AMERICANA] I spent all day reading Willy Vlautin's new novel, The Motel Life, and listening to his band Richmond Fontaine's latest release, Thirteen Cities, which locates a middle ground between the panoramic country-rock of 2003's Post to Wire and the hushed acoustic textures of 2005's The Fitzgerald.

The Sippy Cups at the Aladdin Theater, Saturday, May 5 (1 PM!)


So, I said in my WW preview of this show that "this here rag doesn't pay me enough to possibly come up with a pithier description" for this San Franciscan children's music group than the L.A.
