Breakfast of Champions.... Jhelli Beam comes out June 9th! Yay!


If you’re like me, you’re holding out for smart hip hop.

You’re holding out for people like LA’s Busdriver. He’s brilliant and touring behind his latest Jheli Beam. Busdriver with Palestra Music this evening and then the machine gun of words performs at Circus in Columbus, Ohio.

Cumberland, Maryland duo Cotton Jones attribute their attributes to living at higher altitudes.

That’s for science to decide, but I will tell you that they play in such a way so as to blend in with the mountain surroundings…. Don’t want to cause an avalanche or a rock slide after all. Tonight Cotton Jones are out in the flat lands of Omaha and The Waiting Room.

Sol Driven Train see their life as piling on and off the bus.

The vehicle takes them on a quest to find the crossroads of southern rock, funk, and world beat. Tonight they pile off the bus at Preservation Pub in Knoxville.

As I like to say every band eventually gets back together.

It’s more true everyday. The great, revolutionary and I might add criminally underappreciated Mother’s Finest are covering the south this month from their Atlanta home base. Led by the brassy Joyce Kennedy Mother’s Finest headline The New Brookland in Columbia, South Carolina tonight.

Salt Lake punks Reviver live by the words of Charles Bukowski.

Bukowski said “if you’re going to try, go all the way, otherwise don’t even start.” They’re going all the way to Dry River in Tucson tonight.
