    Cute Is What We Aim For

    Buffalo's Cute Is What We Aim For is likely the perfect 21st-century pop band. Almost purpose-built for short attention spans, CIWWAF focuses so heavily on pop sheen, hooks and scenester touchstones that it's often difficult to figure out the true s...

    Earth, Wind & Fire

    Every year, without fail, Earth Wind & Fire rises from the black hole of tight songwriting, flashy pants and old '70s space junk to take their movable fiesta cross-country. Last given mass exposure when "Boogie Wonderland" appeared in a medley from...

    L.A. Guns

    With an image and sound that evoke Alice Cooper slumming it up in a 3.2 beer joint, '80s rockers L.A. Guns have managed to project their tractor-pull cred and white-tank-top enthusiasm upon multiple generations of American rock lovers. Frontman Trac...

    Mike Stinson

    Dwight Yoakam, who cut Mike Stinson's "Late Great Golden State" on 2003's Population Me, isn't the only country singer to realize Stinson may be the best writer of stone-cold honky-tonk songs on the planet today. Jesse Dayton, no slouch as a honky-t...

    Alejandro Escovedo: Real Animal

    Most collaborations between two such strong artistic personalities as Alejandro Escovedo and Chuck Prophet would be doomed from the start, but Real Animal is like adding a turbocharger to a Ferrari V-12. Searing rocker "Always a Friend" burns rubber...

    Warlocks: Heavy Deavy Skull Lover

    It's hard to imagine doing anything while listening to Heavy Deavy Skull Lover except lying on the couch in a substance-induced stupor -- cough syrup, hydro, opium, take your pick -- so it's probably not a good idea to dial this up on your iPod whil...

    Single File

    Annie, "I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me": This trend of text-message abbreviations invading pop -- thanks, Pink and Fall Out Boy -- has gotta be stopped! Otherwise, artists with names like :P, l8r and tyvm will be signing lucrative, three-month ringto...

    In the Shade: Out of the Shade

    Well, things are winding down here. We'd like to thank the rain for not spoiling our fun. Cory Derden is finishing up and people are filtering out. The Shady Tavern had lots of traffic this weekend. Two days of rock? Tons of people? Yep, and now it...

    In the Shade: Teenage Kicks

    The only promise Teenage Kicks didn't live up to was the time limit. (We're glad they took longer.) The group's unrefined three-piece punk was a lesson in crowd involvement. In between songs, drummer Jon "I'm totally a" Baldwin told the audience to ...

    In the Shade: Off with The Monocles, on with The Mathletes

    The rain looks to be taking a rain check. Party on, Wayne. The Monocles The Monocles thundering punk rock just settled down and now it's on to the always-lovable nerd rock of The Mathletes (who have been whittled down a three piece?! WTF happene...

    In the Shade: The McKenzies

    The McKenzies put on an energetic show, but somewhere where the group's vocals meet its music, things fall short. There's nothing pulling us in. The crowd around seemed to accept them, but many were just letting them provide the background music fo...

    In the Shade: Blame it on the Rain

    Okay, so maybe we were wrong about the weather. Or maybe the weather man was wrong about the weather. 20 percent? It's looking like the rain is about to put on a show of its own. So, if you don't hear from us again, it's because we had to clear out o...

    In the Shade: News that never gets old

    We're starting to wonder what's in the water over at News on the March's headquarters. This five piece never seems to miss its mark. Three-part harmonies? Perfect? Every time? Singer/Bassist/Guitarist Brent was even complaining about the microphone...

    In the Shade: Evak1

    With Perseph1 and Babel Fishh tearing it up on the mike yesterday, we're a little disappointed with today's first offering, Evak 1. Fast paced flows, that weren't fast enough to keep the audience interested. Dude sounds like Marky Mark (and actuall...

    In the Shade: LedaSwan and Paris Falls

    Out-of-towners LedaSwan just got off the stage. The two-female-fronted, fivesome from San Antonio has an indie rock vibe a la Elizabeth Elmore/Sarge. Nice tunes, but we're guessing their vocal cords are still waking up as both ladies were occasiona...

    In the Shade: More updates

    Jon (Guitars, Monocles) and lady April (Guitars, Miranda Rites) John from the Monocles just informed us his threesome powerhouse of punk rock is set to play at 4:50 p.m. Odd time, you might say it's shady like the Tavern. No, but seriously folks ...

    Just scouting the local Internets and it appears that country-tinged rockers News on the March will go around 3 p.m. Update: Hip-hopper Nosaprise announced on MySpace that he's slated to play at 3:30 p.m. We're guessing this means News on the Marc...

    We'll probably head out soon. Too much rock. We can't take this much in one day. But before we leave. We're gonna get a kiddo's take on the action. Ten-year-old Emma from The EmmaLemma blog is going to give us her thoughts on the action. Here's Em...

    In the Shade: Retraction: Perseph1 instead of Guitars

    So Perseph1 just took the stage. Sorry, Guitars fans who got here. But she's sharing the mike with Babel Fish! That's not bad. If you're reading this, you missed it.
