Interpol Summers Well: Touring With U2, Headlining...
photo credit: Cary Whitt In a day and age where most music is over-processed and auto-tune runs rampant, it is refreshing to find a band that can translate in live performance what is heard on their albums. Rare, even. Perhaps that is one of the things most impressive about the band Interpol. The first time I heard them, twelve hours were spent in the car to arrive at the nearest venue. What...
A silly love song...
Checking out the Parlotones, courtesy of the Grog Shop in CLE. Dig hard. Theirs are the harmonies you want lacing the soundtrack to your love story. Feeling quite alive right now. ^_^
Apparently, Aussies can’t go wrong?
Cleveland’s own, The Lighthouse and the Whaler is recording a new album. Rad, right? Wait for it… They’re doing this at legendary Bear Creek Studios. That’s right, cats & kittens, Bear Creek Studios where such musical greats as Fleet Foxes, Ra Ra Riot, and Foo Fighters have recorded. The band is making this happen through a launch of a Kickstarter campaign. ...
The Lighthouse and the Whaler deliver; S. Carey...
Enter a small venue, nothing more than a bar, a stage and two tables. The Beachland Ballroom’s Tavern is an intimate setting to say the least. Tonight it featured two great acts: The Lighthouse and the Whaler, hailing from Cleveland, OH, and S. Carey of Bon Iver. The Lighthouse and the Whaler is a five-piece ensemble that blends timbres across the board, from guitar to violins, drum set,...

[i always thought you had great style]
The gentleman of Interpol always look quite professional while performing, don’t they? The show on Sunday night at LC Pavilion was no different. Paul was wearing a black dress shirt, vest, and jacket with black pants and dress shoes. He had a bracelet on his right wrist, a studded watch on the left, and a necklace. Daniel rocked a black suit with black dress shirt and a gold tie. He had a...
[I gotta taste, a taste, a taste and it's time]
So, last night was the Interpol show at the LC Pavilion. I’ve never been to that venue, haven’t been to Columbus in at least 5 years. I won the Superglued.com Meet & Greet with the band, so Clay and I left the Cleveland area around 11 in order to get to Columbus early. We were to meet the band at 4:30. So, we got to Columbus around 2, hung out with Clay’s friends for a...
Can it be Sunday NOW?!
I’m (im)patiently waiting for the Interpol show this Sunday in Columbus. Excited does not begin to cover what I’m feeling over this show. Last time I saw Interpol was last summer with Dave. It was great! Weird chemistry because of my company, but Interpol is BY FAR the best live act I’ve ever seen. I’m sure they will only further my belief in that with Sunday’s...
