You forgot to mention the fact that the Wandering Monks have a LIVE BAND backing them up. They not only are hitting that stage with an abundance of truth and flow, but they also bring a Guitarist (he's sick!), a bassist (mystery mask wearing phenom), a drummer (you can just call him McNasty), and a keyboardist (who's not only silky sexy on keys but rocks a trumpet and whatever other instruments he can get his hands on).
Though you could sit and really get an education from the content behind the lyrics, you can also get up and shake ya tail feather to the solid groove this group lays down. You'll want to catch this show so you can say "I saw them when they were just coming up in Colorado"... See them now while they're still doing the local shows!
You can check out Inelements performance of their song "Post Stress" at the Indy Music Awards here:
So, no Christians are fussing about this play on sacred doctrines. I wonder what would happen if there was a band called Rag Heads that had a hit entitled Allah Akbar?
Tell that to a SHARP Apul. Education. Get some.
Apul, do your research before you make a statement like that. If you don't know anything about the skinhead subculture then don't talk about it, you are clearly showing you ignorance on the subject.
asians can't be skinheads. what kind of confused person is the singer thinking he's a skinhead? at most he can be a bald headed punk rocker. non whites can't be skinheads.

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.
The J. Miller Band is also still playing Acacia this Saturday! I am inspired by them.
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
Cigar box is big enough to have it's on festival in Chicago (well at least one year worth of one), which Springs favorite, Kevin Incroyable (The Peculiar Pretzlemen) attended last year http://www.cigarboxnation.com/profiles/blo…
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.
Thanks, Gary. A true murder ballad must indeed have blood and malicious intent, or we cheapen the very meaning of words.... I usually count half of all lyrical music as murder ballad, but that's just my bad.
A couple of corrections to Loring Wirbel's description of "Child Ballads" by Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer. Only three of the seven songs exceed six minutes, two are under five minutes, and one is under four minutes. Though there are many deaths in them, it's a stretch to call them murder ballads. Four have no deaths and happy endings. One has a shipwreck. One has an execution. One has two suicidal drownings with an assist from a witch's curse.
If you book it, he will play
Check out the Americana Music & Art Festival later this summer in Florence. www.americanamusicandart.com
