2 May 2010, 16:58 by heathercIn 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
Feb 1 - with Robbie Gjersoe
I'm starting this Monday, Feb. 1, with something safe and sound: my duo with the incredible Robbie Gjersoe. We'll be focusing on country flatpick songs. Bring your eighth-note-o-meters.

31 Jan 2010, 05:06 by StinkySQLALBUM REVIEW: Big Bill Broonzy - 1990 - Good Time Tonight
Summary: This is a compilation album put together by Columbia in 1990. These tracks by Big Bill Broonzy are from late '30s to early '40s from earlier recordings. A lot of it is typical of the south-side Chicago blues sound that he helped create. The producer, Lawrence Cohn, did a really good job of getting these old mono recordings together and the engineering allows the music and talent to come through directly.

15 Dec 2008, 23:54 by YorkshiremikeProject for 2009, up until the point where I get bored/busy and forget all about it of course.
Alex over at 101 Of A Wolf has her busy life all mapped out for 1001 days begining January 1st 2009.
I'm not going to be so adventurous as to try 101 things to do, but something did strike me whilst I was perusing my Scrobbler Library the other day.
Artists in my library - 1,734. I thought that was a pretty good amount, reflecting my ever more diverse/perverse tastes in music, but when I looked at the last pages of my library I discovered lots of bands who had only a single listen to their name, who are these people, these lost voices of music.
Actually it's worse than that, I have added a number of bands to my library that I havn't even listened to a single track by. What passing interest made me add Planetshakers, June Tabor, Dread Zeppelin and Fema Kuti and then not botherto hear them ? I can't answer.
Nor can I tell you why Credo, The Girls, Steel Pulse…
5 Oct 2008, 23:26 by MrModernRockSo, as many of you know by now I'm taking a History of Rock course for one of my electives. Its hard to believe a class covering the history of rock is worth 3 credits.
Anyway, I would like to think I know something about the history and progression of rock. Building upon the blues and R&B basis, throwing in the poor-white-boy-country to form rockabilly and then really taking off from there. Just by listening to things, even in chronological order, its hard to really imagine how influential an artist is on another or how important an artist is to a single genre without some extra, third-party knowledge being thrown in. Whether its a book (this is the book for our course), a course, or a combination of the two. Sure, its easy to hear just how good an artist was back in the day and with some exceptions (ie: Bo Diddley Beat) it takes more than simply listening to an artist to develop a sense of influence surrounding them.
In contrast whites droned out Protestant hymns like the braying of asses in one steady beat. …
