Harvest Records is teasing Transfigurations 2 on their new website to celebrate their 10th anniversary! Save the date: August 28 - 30, 2014.

As you may remember, the first Transfigurations was in August 2009 for their 5th anniversary and featured some amazing acts across 3 venues: Akron/Family, Bonnie Prince Billy, The Books, Budos Band, Circulatory System, Mount Eerie, Espers, War on Drugs, Brightblack Morning Light, Kurt Vile, Ice Cream, Jonathan Kane, Coathangers, Villages, and Steve Gunn.

I can’t wait to see what they have in store for round 2!

I love American Pickers. I’m a rust guy apparently.

One night I’m watching while perusing the upcoming shows at the Mothlight and I see an interesting band, JD Wilkes & The Dirt Daubers. I look up and Danielle is wearing one of their shirts. I start listening to their stuff and it’s an incredible mix from across the entire Americana spectrum, from rockabilly to bluegrass to honky-tonk.

Long story short, the Dirt Daubers are playing tonight at Mothlight. 9:30pm. And it’s a Grandma Presents show so those are always fun!

As an added bonus, above is the Dirt Daubers’ video for Get Outta My Way featuring Danielle Colby herself!

This just in! Gillian Welch is coming back to the Orange Peel in just a few short weeks on April 22. On-sale Friday at noon. I’m sure they will go fast.

The next day starts Moogfest so this will be your last chance to get some acoustic music for a while…

Canada, you win. You produced July Talk and for that, I salute you.

No, seriously, this band blew me away. I was already excited after listening to the album and watching the Paper Girl video, but I did not expect what happened this past Tuesday night at The Millroom. I couldn’t take my eyes off the stage. The dynamic between signers Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay was spellbinding. From song to song I couldn’t tell whether they were going to throw punches or tear their clothes off.

The rest of the band…Ian, Josh, Danny…you guys rocked and I’m sorry for not taking more photos of you.

Get Snowed in at The Mothlight

Rumor has it that we are going to get some snow this week. Luckily for those of us who live in Westville, The Mothlight has some incredible shows coming up this week so are just a stone’s throw away. Put on your snowpants and get down!
