Dublin’s very own, Girl Band has been catching on with domestic and international fans and press alike. I caught up with them at The Black Cat in Washington,DC before they headed out to SXSW in Austin. Their music is a compact high energy romp through noise-punk and light techno. Today, they announced their first feature length album, Holding Hands with Jamie, after a string of singles and an EP. Girl Band is made up of Dara Kiely, Alan Duggan, Daniel Fox and Adam Faulkner. You’d be hard-pressed to find nicer dudes. Looking forward to watching their career trajectory.

During a recent performance @ the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, Wanda Jackson mixed in a “behind the music” atmosphere within her repertoire of rockabilly and country hits. As a young teen in 1955 she was singing her country music while sharing the bill with Elvis Presley. The pair briefly dated and Elvis convinced her to play “this new kind of music”. According to Jackson, there was no name for it at the time, but soon was coined “Rock & Roll”. She did go on to play the new kind of music, mixing in country and became one of the first to form rockabilly. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. Jack White produced Jackson’s latest album where she with White on guitar and a kicking horn section they rumble through a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Thunder on the Mountain”.

The Henry Miller Libarary was the tiny setting in the woods of Big Sur for the last stop of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood Tour. Robinson, the long-time front man of the Black Crowes sang brand new songs and a mix of classic covers with a smokin’ backing band led by Neal Casal (Ryan Adams & The Cardinals) on lead guitar, Mark “Muddy” Dutton on bass, George Sluppick on the skins, and Black Crowes keyboardist Adam McDougall.  The Henry Miller Library just became, perhaps my favorite concert venue. Ensconced in Redwoods, it was like seeing a show in someone’s backyard. We rolled into town for the Saturday evening show while rain poured on and off on the drive from San Francisco. CR interacted with the crowd and said that they just could play with an inch of rain on the stage. So, they rescheduled for Sunday afternoon and the pictures below represent the Sunday afternoon show. Enjoy!
