EELS: END TIMES

by mike schoeck End Times is Mark Oliver Everett’s career-defining record. As the eighth studio album from Eels, we find a 46-year-old man hunkered down with an old 4-track recorder in his Los Angeles home. He’s miserable, fist balled at the world and apparently just lost someone he’s cared about quite a lot. Eels’ second [...]

MONSTERS OF FOLK @ UNITED PALACE THEATER

post and (amazing) pics by marc evan In 1965, at the Newport Folk Festival, Bob Dylan stepped on stage and changed the face of folk music by playing an electrically amplified set with his band.  As the famous anecdote goes, Pete Seeger was so upset with the distortion during “Maggie’s Farm” that he wanted to [...]

NO BRAND LIKE LEGIT

by james eskeldson It’s not easy to be a legit brand or a legit person. Sometimes I feel like saying “eff it” and joining the crowd. I mean pretty much every force in the world is trying to pull you in its own direction. Is it even worth it? It’s almost like friends, jobs, corporations, [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 22 (NOV 16 – 22)

by bmac Another QC reunion in NYC this weekend. Good times. So good, in fact, that we didn’t really post shit. Sigh. Our apologies to the readers who suffer from our hungover laziness. Anyway, this weeks mixtape is a little on the short side and has a lot more hip hop than usual. It’s freaking [...]

QC DVD PLUG: I’M NOT THERE

by greg dybec (pic by michael b. myers) As the timeless and raw music of Bob Dylan seeps through my headphones and into my ears I feel a seemingly unquenchable craving. This often happens when Dylan becomes the main orator of my laptop speakers and ipod headphones. It is something like an unexpected addiction, and [...]

CONOR OBERST & BEN KWELLER ROCK TERMINAL 5

by marc evan Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band set a new high standard for folk rock. I have been fortunate enough to see many great rock shows recently. Most of these so-called great shows are a reflection of the performers getting up on stage and playing their music well. This was not the [...]

SHAZAM MIX VOL. 1

by bmac The other day I downloaded an application for my iPhone called Shazam. You fire this thing up and it will listen to whatever music is playing (in a bar, on the radio, wherever) and spit out the artist, song, album, year recorded, record label, links to Youtube videos, iTune downloads, and the lead [...]

JASON COLLETT @ THE MERCURY LOUNGE 4.10.08

by kristen b I must be honest and admit, the Mercury Lounge is not my favorite venue (although, in comparison to its competitors, their draught beer selection is quite nice and reasonably priced, cheers for that). Which can be a shame, because the place hosts some great up and coming acts. Even some of my [...]
