Can't wait for Thursday's show! We have seen the Steep Canyon Rangers several times, and they are great.
@siggie Go to his show. I just went last night and there was just great music. There's no need to miss out because of that fear. If you love the guy, go listen to him.
I don't expect him to come out with a new album soon, he just released Life Acoustic and it is great. But when Everlast does release something new I'll buy it. I didn't care for La Coka Nostra but glad to see Everlast is doing hip hop still.
Next album a hip hop album. Cool!
fix your article! That would be Agents of Oblivion not Age
You can check out Inelements performance of their song "Post Stress" at the Indy Music Awards here:
Hard work is very important in any work to go from top to bottom.This is the result of their hard work that Todd Evans and his band members are successfully running this band.
Sounds like country music; someone singing about climbing barstool mountain.
Been following Todd for over 10 years. My wife and I are in our mid 60's, non hippie or druggies, but just love his "life is too short not to have fun" attitude. We live in Florida near Tampa and have driven to Atlanta to see him, and lucked out and saw him in Colorado, while visiting sister-in-law. If in a funky mood, grab one of his cd's and stop taking everything so seriously, and poof, it's gone. Only thing I don't like about him is that he doesn't come to mid Florida, enough. Hope I didn't tick him off...........Nah...he would just shrug it off!
The talent and amazing gift (curse). Todd Snider displays is beyond impressive....an amazing man...who just seems to be class and trash with ease. Of course , now I have to find Slacker and watch it. Local chamber of commerce doesn't like it? LOL
Great interview, man. Really casual and informative. Oliveros is a towering figure, and you make it all approachable.
A familiarity with known musicians should be required but I have found this not to be true. Perhaps the same old story (30 years and still going) of "no music scene in the Springs" shall never change. Perhaps I am too old now and not a good demographic target, just a target.
If you book it, he will play
Check out the Americana Music & Art Festival later this summer in Florence. www.americanamusicandart.com

Hello, I am a grade 9 student. I think the things that Omar Offendum is doing are very commendable. By rapping about the events going on within the Arab Spring, he is raising awareness about the Arab Spring. Also, by paying homage to the revolution and people involved in it, he is encouraging people to stand up for what they believe in. He is also encouraging people to try to make things better, even though in this case they did not necessarily get better. I strongly agree with the decisions to feature him in interviews with PBS, Al Jazeera, and Rolling Stone, and with the decisions to have him perform at Colorado College on Martin Luther King Day and at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum because it will definitely raise even more awareness. Since pop culture is such a big industry all around the world, why not use it for good causes such as this one? This could draw much attention to Offendum, and the Arab Spring. I also think Offendum deserves respect for explaining to people that stereotypes about Arabians are not true for many people, speaking out about how “we're not terrorists, we're not extremists, we're not this or that. Instead I tell people what it is that we are, and why we're so proud of our culture, our heritage and our background." In general, I strongly support Offendum and his intentions.
Yes, he's a lefty. But I love the guy. When he wrote "...No I hate the men sent the jobs away.", I was tempted to write to him and ask if he hated the politicians that raised our corporate tax rate to be the highest in the world. "TAX THE RICH" --- doesn't that have a familiar ring?
However, I doubt he sees it that way. I will avoid going to his show simply because I don't feel like sitting through a bunch of political commentary between songs. But, I won't stop listening to his excellent music.
L. Kent Wolgamott, do your homework, it was 2009's "Pearl River" that Zito co-wrote with Cyril Neville that won the BMA for song of the year, not "Greyhound".
