Various Re-post-ions: Two Minutes to Late Night (again)

We try not to shine the light on the same sight over and over again, but Two Minutes to Late Night is just that good. Also this week’s cover includes long time friend of the blog Adam Turla from Murder by Death (along with members of My Chemical Romance, Distillers, Thursday and Soul Glo) covering an Annie Lennox classic, so you know we have to share the love.

Rearview Mirror – Postcard Elba

Rearview Mirror is our annual look back at the year in music from our friends in and around the business.  Musicians, managers, roadies, superfans, bloggers etc..

This year we’re upping the vanity aspect of it by sprinkling in our favorite posts of the past year, which you may have missed the first time around.  In March we did a little series called SXSWland Tales, where we had friends in the biz who had gone to SXSW to send us a recap of their personal experiences.  There were a lot of great ones, but this one from Will Pepple (Tour Manager/Sound Guy for Matt & Kim, Mr. Heavenly, Diplo, Lucero, Murder by Death and about a thousand other bands) was our favorite.  Just a series of photos with minimal explanation gives a good feel for the blur that is SXSW.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

While homebodies by nature, we do regularly muster the single malt courage to go out into the world and experience music in the flesh, and we document these excursions in Where the Bus Pass Took Us.

This weekend we caught the farewell performance of Thousand Arrows (who is moving to Portland, OR), the passing through by way of Olympia, WA greatness of Eleanor Murray and local beard and hat enthusiast Sam Lowry performing at The Bishop. As usual, our camera crapped out earlier than we would like (our battery seems to be dying a swift death) but we were able to capture a couple of songs by Sam Lowry, who was assisted this show by Matt Armstrong from Murder by Death.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

While homebodies by nature, we do regularly muster the single malt courage to go out into the world and experience music in the flesh, and we document these excursions in Where the Bus Pass Took Us.

Last night we caught Brooklyn’s The Woes, along with local stalwart Sam Lowry, as they came through town to The Bishop. Our camera was not as charged as we thought it was and so after shooting a couple of songs from the Lowry set we were only able to get one from The Woes, but we still wanted to share. Check them out below.

This Day in Music History (Sort Of) – Mustache! on blue jeans

It was this day in 1873 that San Francisco businessman Levi Strauss and Reno tailor Jacob Davis were given a patent to create work pants reinforced with metal rivets, marking the birth of one of the world’s most famous garments: blue jeans. To mark the occasion we asked our buddies Travis Falcontamer and Jesse Grizzlebottom from the group Mustache! to wax poetic on the blue jean and it’s influence on rock and roll and society as we know it.
