Ryan Adams @ Eccles Theater 06.18 with Karen Elson
Once the set was clear of musicians, more smoke was added in the form of burning sage, a further attempt to ritually clear the area of any other entities before the lights dimmed. Adams came on board, along with his new band, opening up the music hall by instantly filling it with “Let It Ride.” … read more

I discovered California X through the SXSW schedule at a time when I needed to fill a hole during my day. It was one of those “watch/listen to one thirty minute segment and throw caution to the wind” situations, and I hoped California X was something I could get into. … read more
SXSW 2013: Baths @ Mohawk 03.13

Well, I don’t, so they can all fuck it.” Words alone are not a good example of Baths’ humor, so I recommend you see the “band” in person. … read more
