    Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

    Grace Potter has jammed the antiwar streets enough to get arrested. But if she showed any politics on last year's This Is Somewhere, the protest was mostly veneered by the Nocturnals' adult-alternative rock and Southern-boogie blues, though she cut...

    Willie Nelson

    Willie Nelson has had quite the 75th birthday year. He's been feted in print -- Joe Nick Patoski's deluxe biography Willie -- and on Columbia/Legacy's outstanding four-CD anthology One Hell of a Ride. And he shows no signs of letting up -- must be a...

    Rabbit in the Moon

    If your Halloween isn't bizarre enough already, consider the sensory overload of Rabbit in the Moon live: strobe lights, lasers, smoke machines and a sea of costumed bodies writhing in (and perhaps on) ecstasy. Formed in 1991, the three-man Tampa-ba...

    Talk about a dynamite mix: Da de los Muertos, Los Skarnales, art crosses and MECA (Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts). That's the formula for Under the Volcano's annual Day of the Dead benefit. While local artists hand over de...

    What to do with a hopelessly pretentious but inarguably catchy band like Colourmusic? Though the Stillwater, Oklahoma, natives claim a bloodline to Sir Isaac Newton and a mission to make records based on the principle of synesthesia -- where hearing...

    Roy Orbison: The Soul of Rock and Roll

    The leg up Roy Orbison had on fellow founding fathers of rock Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly was that he could be all of them at once. His bodacious voice, mad guitar skills and nerd-chic look rocked around the clock. These combined powe...

    Aftermath: The Black Keys at Meridian

    Photos by Mark C. Austin Live-music fatigue is an awful thing, but it happens. It must be really bad for the people who only go to three or four concerts a year. But sometimes even us diehards have to say uncle. And so it was at the Black Keys las...

    All Right, One More from ACL (But You'll Like It)

    I know, Rocks Off thought we were done with ACL too. But this clip of the stageside sign-language interpreter signing the lyrics to "Loser," which Beck opened with Saturday night, was too good to pass up. Considering those lyrics, something...

    Will Rappers Cost Obama the Election? Will Big & Rich Cost McCain the Election?

    Witness the negative media reaction to Ludacris's Hillary/McCain/Bush-bashing "Politics as Usual," which caused the Obama campaign to distance itself from the overzealous rapper. Really, isn't there something to be said for keeping this particularly ...
