Here's a video by Time Out Boston from last year's shindig, which includes some performance clips from 2010 winners Dom (song of the year), M-Dot (hip hop) and Barry & The Remains (Hall of Fame) :

Lucero NYE

What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Lucero plays Paradise on Dec 31, 2011. Although it's unrelated, that's the same night as First Night Boston, so there will be lots and lots of people in town that night and lots to do before the show... said of Lucero's "Dreaming in America":

Flying by the seat of their pants, Southern indie rockers Lucero have eked out a career in music despite never receiving a royalty check from their first record company and watching their second label close its doors right as the band was getting hot. Add a charismatic, heartfelt ruffian as lead singer, a never-ending tour schedule, and a Replacements-like show that's brilliance on the brink of drunken disaster, and you've got one heck of a story.

Video: Lucero Live @ CBGB


When I saw them in 2009, they reminded me more of Uncle Tupelo than The Replacements, but I'm a big fan of both and never got to see either. Lucero have a rabid following, many who sing along and shout requests, even this far north of their Memphis home. They play for two hours without a set list and honor most requests; even if they're not sure they can remember the words. They rock. Go see them, if you can.

John Peel

 John Peel (30 August, 1939 – 25 October, 2004) was a famous radio DJ and one of the rare non-musicians whose impact in shaping modern music was greater than those of many of the musicians that he championed. October 25 marks the anniversary of his passing approaches, described as "the day the music died" by The London Evening Standard. I came across some great tributes to the man; including John Peel Day events listed at the #KeepingItPeel website and the documentary "John Peel's Record Box", shown below.

The videos below are described by JohnPeel3904 as a documentary that was "first shown on Channel 4 in 2005, looking at the most prized records in John Peel's huge record collection, which he kept stored in a special box. Looks at the music and artists featured in those special records and at the music tastes of John Peel. Also includes interviews with family and friends, including wife Sheila Ravenscroft, son Tom (who was also involved in its production) and brother Alan; DJs Mary Anne Hobbs, Paul Gambaccini and Marc Riley; artists Elton John, Ronnie Wood (Faces), Roger Daltrey (Who), Fergal Sharkey (Undertones), Jack White (White Stripes), Mark E. Smith and Brixa Smith (Fall), Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt (Status Quo), Billy Bragg, Daman Albarn (Blur) and Pete Wylie (Wah!); plus schoolmate Michael Palin."

Lucinda Williams "Copenhagen"

The Lemonheads Do Ray, The Pixies Doolittle

Two of Boston's best bands will be doing their best albums in their entirety live, so you may want to get your tickets soon.

Both albums are considered to be among the greatest of all time. According to Best Ever Albums, "Doolittle" is ranked at 21 and "Ray" at 881. One could argue about the order, but both would be in my Top 100 albums of all-time and Ray would be higher on my list.

The Lemonheads will be doing "It's a Shame About Ray" (1992) at Paradise on Oct 12 and Pearl Street in Northampton on Oct 15.

The Pixies have done their album "Doolittle" (1989) in major cities, but are bringing it The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Oct 30 and the State Theatre in Portland, ME on Nov 1 as part of their Lost Cities tour.

Intown Manchester Summer Concert Series
Veteran's Park, Manchester, NH

2011 TD Bank Summer Concert Series at Veterans Park. All shows begin at 7pm and are free and open to the public. Donations for the series will be accepted at park entrances and throughout the evening by volunteers from the Palace Theatre. Food and non-alcoholic drink will be available for purchase on sight. 

Be sure to bring a comfortable lawn chair or blanket and catch these phenomenal acts under the stars in downtown’s best outdoor venue at Veterans Park:

The Whose Muddy Shoes acoustic band emphasizes high energy arrangements with full bodied vocal harmony, playing blues, jazz, swing, folk, country and other classic Americana along with original tunes. The quartet features acoustic guitar, bass, clarinet and saxophone, with three and four part vocal harmony.

Whose Muddy Shoes has been together for over ten years as an acoustic quartet, and has played in Boston and New England venues including Club Passim, Johnny D's, the Newburyport Waterfront concert series and New Year's First Night, the Blackthorne Tavern, and the Colonial Inn, and the former Old Vienna.


The Alternate Routes were formed as an outgrowth of a meeting between songwriting partners Eric Donnelly (lead guitar) and Tim Warren (lead vocals, guitar) at Fairfield University in Connecticut. Expanding to a five-piece and based at one point in Boston, the band was working out of Bridgeport, CT. Whatever fate has in store for this promising young band, it’s sure to make for a good story…and an even better song. The Alternate Routes have never been afraid to roll the dice during their brief and turbulent journey, always relying upon their heartfelt brand of music to pull them through the ups and downs that come with the territory. It’s a trait evident in their powerful Vanguard Records debut, Good and Reckless and True, a memorable, incredibly confident opening statement from a band that takes nothing for granted. The album emphasizes straightforward guitar rock, with occasional gentler songs more in the singer/songwriter style.


Formerly known as The Verbs, Rockspring is a high energy five-piece string band that has quickly gained a strong following in the New England region. Combining original songwriting with eclectic cover choices, Rockspring puts on an incredibly entertaining live show that makes people dance out of their shoes into the wee hours of the night.
Bending bluegrass, rock and various other influences, Rockspring not only appeals to bluegrass fans, but also to pop, rock, alternative folk and country ...


MTV Video Music Award Nominee and 2010 Boston Music Conference Winners Air Traffic Controller have teamed up with legendary power-pop maestro/producer, Bleu, and signed on with Sugarpop Records. Their extraordinary debut album, “The One” has been shaking up the airwaves in 2010 and into 2011. Serving in the US Navy as a real-life air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home 4-track demo tapes of songs written during his deployment. With his enlistment up, Munro returned to hometown Boston and discovered an impressive number of fans, prompting the genesis of the aptly-named rock band Air Traffic Controller. Accolades and award nominations soon followed; as did airplay on tastemaker radio stations such as WFNX and WERS, and coverage in publications such as Business Week, Boston Herald, Performer Magazine, Boston Globe and the Boston Phoenix.

Treat Her Right

Treat Her Right will be doing a live recording at Lizard Lounge on Wed, Apr 27, 2011. Special guests will include Tim Gearan, Monique Ortiz, Jess Tardy and more. I recently saw them put on a blazing set at this year's New England Americana Festival, so saying that this promises to be a great show would be an understatement. Advance tickets suggested.
Born in the Boston area around 1984, Treat Her Right was a band with a sound ahead of it's time. Fronted by David Champagne on slide guitar, Mark Sandman on low guitar, Jimmy Fitting on harmonica and Billy Conway on cocktail drum, Treat Her Right was said to have a style that encompassed rock & roll, rockabilly, blues-rock, and swamp-rock, all with post-punk attitude...cowpunk. Cambridge on any given night? 
Here's a vintage Treat Her Right video, featuring Mark Sandman and filmed at The Plough and Stars in the late '80's.

Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story

Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story is a film on the life and music of the former frontman for Boston's “low rock” band Morphine. Sandman tragically died on stage in 1999 at the age of 46. His impact on the Cambridge and Boston music scene is still felt today.

Mark's vision lives on in the Mark Sandman Music Project. His music lives on in Elastic Waste Band (former members of Morphine) at Atwoods Tavern on Wednesday nights and Treat Her Right (Mark's earlier band) at Toad on alternate Sunday nights.

The film will be shown on Fri, Apr 29 at 10PM as part of the Independent Film Festival Boston.

Foo Fighters new film and album

"Back and Forth" the 2011 documentary on Foo Fighters is now airing on VH1. It's pretty good, so check local listings. The Foos will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live tonight (Apr 9).
The Foos new album "“Wasting Light” was recorded in Dave's garage, on tape (no Pro Tools), produced by Butch Vig ("Nevermind") and features appearances by Krist Novoselic (Nirvana) and Bob Mould (Husker Du/Sugar). I'll listen...

The White Stripes Call it Quits

The White Stripes have officially called it quits. Thanks for the memories Jack and Meg! Here's the text from

The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011, their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health.

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.

Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes’ intense and incredible career.

Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular channels.

Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn’t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has  created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who’ve shared in those creations, with their feelings considered greatly.

With that in mind the band have this to say:

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”

Meg and Jack White

Below is a haunting video for "Ghost Woman Blues", which they performed on Late Show with David Letterman on Jan 12, 2010.

I always liked the harmonies on "To Ohio" from their album "Oh My God Charlie Darwin".

David Wax Museum

In case you missed David Wax Museum at the Newport Folk Festival, First Night Boston or around town, get ready to mark your calendars. The David Wax Museum's CD Release Extravaganza will be Thu, Feb 3 at OBERON in Harvard Square. Below is their new video, which was featured in this story from NPR's All Songs Considered.

They said to expect up to ten musicians, horns, accordions in addition to the donkey jawbone. They expect that their moms will be there too, so keep the cursing to a minimum.
