  • Fulks 2010 residency at The Hideout

    In February, Robbie Fulks began a Monday night residency at The
    Hideout, which is scheduled to last throughout at least all of 2010
    (whenever Robbie is available). Few artists would do such a thing
    with as great a diversity as he has thus far. So I'll use this journal
    to keep a record of the shows, updating it throughout the year.


    On October 31, 2010, the Chicago Sun-Times ran an article on Robbie's residency: http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/music/2844886,music-residencies-103110.article

    The description and playlist below are from the weekly radio show (A Brief History Of…) that my friend and I host on WSUM 91.7fm Madison. We selected songs we felt were either historically important or just representative of each specific topic. Please comment if you feel we missed something or just to give your opinion. Remember, however, that we do this show in an hour (about 50 minutes of music). Track length is a major factor in our decisions (shorter is usually better). Thanks!

    A Brief History of…The Origins of Rock and Roll examines the mixture of musical forces that led to the fad known as “rock and roll.” First, rock and roll in all its forms is a derivation of simple blues music. More specifically, though, rock and roll was a blend of jump blues, gospel, western swing, and traditional country that developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s (primarily in African-American communities across the country).
