This guy is an IDIOT! He doesn't get it at all! Ferguson is not a racist - far from it. It was CBS's policy re the Obama T-shirt, and Ferguson was just trying to make sure that policy was observed (no doubt under duress from network suits). He generally avoids discussing politics in general (and religion) because they are too emotionally charged and that's not what his show's about. He was SINCERE is his shout out to the band regarding the issue because he LOVES rebellion. It's what made America.....America! Lighten up, Dean! It's not all about YOU.
Great article. I could hear Hazel's voice in my head while I was reading. What an amazing woman and this article proves it!

The Genuwines are just a bit fast and upbeat for Isakov. And actually I just heard an illuminati song that changed my mind a bit. So take my prior post with a grain of salt.
Actually, I would disagree with Adam's defining the Genuwines as "country-pop." I think they're more like alt-folk with a bit of a country feel, thus complementing indie folk rocker Isakov quite well.
Genuwines with Isakov? Illuminati with Apples in Stereo? Is this town trying to show the world that we have no idea how to match local bands with touring acts? Nothing wrong with those two local bands, but wisdom on the streets woulda put the Changing Colors with Isakov and El Toro with Apples; seems like a better fit, eh? These two shows are going to draw people that don't see many local bands and appealing to their taste could've done a lot for the right local bands.
A really well written article, and for an American, you've highlighted the importance of the awards Shad has been associated with very well. Good to know people south of the border have heard of him.
Bill, I just want to thank and congratulate you on a well-written article. I'm from Toronto and a huge Shad fan and I always get a little worried about American publications talking about Canadian artists that I love; I worry they'll miss the point. But you really did a nice job with this one and didn't downplay the importance of being nominated for/winning Junos and the Polaris Prize.
My father was responsible for booking these bands into Colorado Springs and there is no mention of him any where. He had one of the biggest music stores at the time. Originally it was Miller Music. He went on his own in 1969 and it became Music Centers INC. Not only was it a Music store but also a recording studio and booking agent. As a child I went to all of these concerts. He was responsible for launching many carreers including the Seeds , and Flash Cadillac . He and his brother were a force to be reckoned with in the Music business in that town. I used to go to Steve Scotts and play with his kids. Without him and his brother many of these concerts would not have happened. You need to research things a little more. His name was Frank Freddes and his brother was Charles . They called my dad "Uncle Frank"
Thanks Adam. You're awesome and we appreciate it.
dude Stab Crew had to cancel this show. But our counterparts 99 Bottles are playing at the Union Station on Saturday
If it's so easy to put together, why are you're posting on the internet rather than out there making it big? I'm just guessing that opening for Arlo Guthrie gets you a pretty big check.
What's so special about the Windchimes is that they're awesome people who write great songs and they're one of our community's best hopes for success.
Haha, I love the comment above me. Yeah, what's so special about the haunted wind chimes? They play slow boring mediocre folk that wouldn't be hard to put together at all.
At first I was concerned that perhaps this week's column might not mention the Haunted Windchimes. I was concerned that perhaps you and the Windchimes had fallen out of touch...that perhaps, they were no longer your golden children. I thought maybe, just maybe, bands other than those in Adam Leech's magic circle of specialness might get a mention. Thank goodness I stuck around until the end to see that your beloved Windchimes are still in your life.
GOD LISTENS TO SLAYER 666

My first taste of Chromeo was a few years ago: stumbling onto "Tenderoni" on an Irish friend's MySpace page. I was sold.
Nice to know I wasn't the only kid in high school that looked up "that guy in the Warren G song." ;-)
"Like with Fergie, we did the music exactly the way I wrote it," Slash said. "She sang to exactly what I wrote. We didn't change anything. That happened a lot on the record. But then with Kid Rock, and with M Shadows [of Avenged Sevenfold], we worked on those songs from the ground up. mbt shoes
They really had an idea of the parts they wanted to do."
Thanks so much Adam!!
I am a hard core Bodeans fan from Canada, I love all the releases, hard to name my favourite. I love the new record, I was listening to it in the car yesterday, and today I was back to "Joe Dirt Car", hard to beat that one for variety. Bodeans are the greatest American roots rock band of the past 30 years, no one is close in my estimation. Since their following is very loyal, I really don't think the iTunes snub will matter much, other than being an undeserved insult. Most of these flash in the pan artists burn out after 2-3 years of over hype and no one wants to hear them ever again. Bodeans are classic, their music endures. I for one don't mind being part of the cult following, and I am just angry they never come to Canada to perform !!
