    Ladies Luck - Five Barenaked Canadians conquer a fickle America with patience

    After almost a decade, Barenaked Ladies's slow-and-steady wooing of America finally came to fruition this summer. Upon its June release, Stunt, the Canadian band's fourth full-length CD, debuted at number three -- not bad when you consider its predec...

    Change Is Good

    For McCoy Tyner, one of the most pivotal moments in his musical evolution was also one of the most casual. "My mom asked me, 'Do you mind if Bud Powell uses our piano?' He came in and played my piano and I offered him a sandwich. Years later, I saw h...

    Anti-Swing Objective - Tosca takes up arms against a watered-down craze. Its secret weapon? Tango.

    The noise from the Orchid Lounge stage sounds suspiciously like tuning in an orchestra pit. On the dance floor, a handful of couples practice their steps. One graying twosome struggles in vain to stay in synch, their feet unable to cooperate with the...

    Smut Circus

    Think of industrial Bozo Porno Circus as horny exhibitionists given free rein to act on their sexual/musical urges in public. On stage at a Bozo show, female dancers in bondage gear writhe and cavort to the delight of gawking young males while the en...

    Clubland

    Initially, the concept seemed a little odd: booking local underground bands at an infamous all-nude nightclub. But when you think about it, the idea of a punk night at the Pink Pussycat makes some sense. After all, we're talking about groups that tak...

    The color of money... Anyone waiting for front-row seats to Gulf Coast hip-hop's final showing might want to take a number: Master P's No Limit label empire is expanding like a balloon on a helium tank. Come December, he'll have upward of 15 releases...

    Just the Basics

    From the beginning, the harmonica has been one of the basic tools of the blues -- and for good reason: It's readily affordable, easily portable and relatively simple to learn. Its distinctive, reedy tone, rendered by both exhaling and inhaling, seems...

    Action Incorporated - Make way for Master P's low-end version of Hollywood

    If Howard Stern still believes he carries the burden of being "King of All Media," he should pick up a copy of the urban-music bible The Source sometime. He'll find that many of today's rap impresarios are kicking his ass in that department, probing ...

    Keen on the Past

    Hey kids, it's another Robert Earl Keen album. Time to crack some brewskis, get rowdy and howl at the moon as you pilot that pickup toward some border town. Better be ready for some serious scrapes with trouble, right? Not exactly. As the title ...

    In the Clear

    Add Ian Moore's name to the growing list of artists who have graduated from the apparent grind of major-label commitments to working for themselves. The Austin guitar prodigy released two albums for the Capricorn imprint earlier this decade, only to ...

    Out of Africa

    Well versed and well traveled, Randy Weston defined "multicultural" with his blend of jazz and African traditional music decades before the term became a divisive sociopolitical catch phrase. As if the 72-year-old pianist ever really had a choice in ...

    In the Black

    Everyone wins at an all-day, live-music marathon like Fall Jam IV. The radio station (in this case, KLOL/101.1 FM) gets plenty of publicity, and listeners get to see a lot of acts -- perhaps even a few of their heroes -- at a reasonable cost. Even be...
