Shrie's favorite albums of 2009, NOT in a "Top Ten" list

I have come to really dislike putting together “Best Of” lists or year-ending spreadsheets of music that everyone has already heard. This time I’m gonna do it differently…Shrie -style! These are just a few albums/songs/artists that tickled my fancy and got some good stereo-play at our house. Some are indie critic darlings (and disliked by […]

Noise for the Needy 2008: Matt & Kim, YACHT, No-fi Soul Rebellion, Feral Children

Show Date: June 14, 2008

My friend and I arrived just in time to catch the last minute of the last song of the Feral Children’s set; the intensity was so thick in the air, I could have cut it with a knife. The moment I saw x unidentified man thrashing about onstage beating a conga, I knew I had […]

Cutest penny ever

During the YACHT portion of Saturday's AMAZING Noise for the Needy show at Neumo's, the duo played this video.

SXSW 2008 Superlatives: Part 1

Show Date: March 12, 2008

My goal of this year’s South By Southwest Festival (which ran from Wednesday, March 12 through Saturday night 2am, March 15) was to maximize my time and memory-making opportunities while still remaining fresh and wide-eyed for each performance. In other words, I didn’t want the 95 degree weather, (possible) over indulgence the night before, lack […]

Best of 2007: Erik G's favorite albums

Sometimes I think it takes me waaay too long to come up with my Top 20 albums of a given year. There are a lot of internal debates and arguments that really have no right answer. Really, you reach a point where all the albums are good but how to rank them gets to be […]

Tonight's Recommended Show: Architecture In Helsinki and YACHT at Neumo's

It is a super-powered ALL AGES bill tonight at Neumo's with Architecture In Helsinki headlining and retro-indie-beat band YACHT opening up. The night is going to be a feel good indie-pop dance party with the cute, musically-inclined AV club that we call Architecture in Helsinki. Last time I saw them they were a sight for […]
