    Drenched in Neil: More from the Diamond Mine

    Photos by Craig Hlavaty You know, at least they're not at a Jonas Brothers show. Which is like saying, "Well, at least they're smoking hash and not mainlining speedballs into the veins between their toes." They get a free pass tonight. I bet whe...

    Aftermath: The Cardinals at Verizon Wireless Theater

    Photos by Chris Gray Ryan Adams is not difficult. Not onstage, anyway. Clad in a surely unironic Dokken T-shirt, the wafer-thin Adams - who by all accounts has been clean and sober for a while, but still needs to eat something - went out of his way...

    Tonight: The Sian Alice Group, Also at Walter's on Washington

    True to its name, Sian Alice Group's debut album 59.59, which came out early this year on the Social Registry, clocks in at just under an hour and marvels in the cold contours of time and space. But if the four- to six-piece London ensemble comes o...

    Aftermath: Neil Diamond at Toyota Center

    As I walked into the Neil Diamond concert last night, I was already bathed in decades of derision. Years of being told by popular culture that he was a corny and trite leftover from the coked-over '70s. A sad relic of popular music history, when me...

    Johnny Cash Up In Da Club

    Tonight: Awesome Color at the Mink

    Damn. Wasn't that something? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore indirectly turned me on to Awesome Color, a terrifying trio from the wilds of northern Michigan. AC is one of the artists on Moore's Universal-distributed label, Ecstatic Peace, and released t...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: Kiss My Ass, W

    Four Lost Neil Diamond Covers

    Few musicians polarize critics like Neil Diamond, but, love him or hate him, you can't deny his ability to write unforgettable pop numbers. Just consider how many of Diamond's songs have become standards and then, as covers, became standards again....

    Aftermath: Citizen Cope at Verizon Wireless Theater

    Photos by Kris Ex It's impossibly hard to talk about Citizen Cope. His allure is rooted to his ability to remain a closed cipher. His music - old-timey folk, modern-day blues and gully street tales full of the uncounted and forgotten - is at once a...
