Valley Hush, Erica Joy, Dylan Guthrie, Modern Friend @ recordBar

Tito’s Sound Machine is at it again. This Friday at recordBar, Valley Hush, Erica Joy, Dylan Guthrie, and Modern Friend will take the stage for a night of electronic (ish) pop and stunning performances–seriously, if you’ve seen any one of these bands play, then you know just what I mean. It’s basically spring, so let these […]

Keep Westport Weird

One of the first concerts I went to was at The Beaumont Club–the snake pit of a venue now occupied by Char Bar. I remember standing in front of the stage as UnderOath‘s front man swung screaming from the rafters, as Thursday‘s dissonant riffs filled my then angsty body. Another early concert of mine was […]

MidCoast Takeover 2017: Send ‘Em To Austin

It’s that time of year: the fog is burning off the horizon before noon, the ground is thinking about turning green again, and music festivals are starting to pop up in our Facebook feeds. One of those festivals should be The MidCoast Takeover. Sitting squarely in its seventh year, The MidCoast Takeover is a four-day […]

Apocalypse Meow (Number 9)

It’s the time of year in which scary things abound–ghosts, ghouls, queues at Westport bars. But what’s scarier than all that combined? Being a touring musician without health insurance, that’s what. While touring life has been glammed up–sex, drugs, and rock n roll amirite?–, the reality is usually more mechanical and tied together with red […]

Having moved from old Westport to downtown (1520 Grand Blvd), recordBar is hosting an incredible night of hip hop. This Wednesday, New Yorker Meyhem Lauren will perform, supported by […]

New Years Eve Concerts Part II

Yesterday, I previewed Davey’s Uptown Rambler’s Club NYE concert. Another concert that’s making me wish I had a time turner is one of the final recordBar shows. The concert will feature The Conquerors, Various Blonde, and Jaenki for what will undoubtedly be one of the best ways to end the old year and begin the […]
