The Antlers

The Antlers are so good, even The Onion had to be serious for a moment and heap praise on the band.

We want The Onion to continue to be funny, but we have to agree, their new album “Hospice” is a stunner. The Antlers play The Jackpot in Lawrence, Kansas tonight.

First time I heard Todd Eberwine sing he reminded me of someone…. and I wracked my brains trying to think of who.

Then it hit me…. David Clayton Thomas…. Who? He was in this band Blood, Sweat, and Tears… They played Woodstock… have Netflix send you the movie…. Anyway The Todd Eberwine Band play the blues and good ole soul at The Lafayette Taproom in Buffalo tonight.

The name Keegan Dewitt may be unfamiliar to you, but if you’re a fan of independent film you’ve probably come across his work.

Dewitt is a film music composer, sometimes film actor, and even turns up off broadway. Dewitt is also celebrating his new album of well appointed chamber pop. Tonight Dewitt performs at The Nightlight in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

BLVD have some November dates planned with The Disco Biscuits.

Tonight the live hip hop and break beat band will have you going at The Fox Theater in Boulder, Colorado.

The Riverboat Gamblers are touring behind their new record, and maybe they’ll play a Prince song for you tonight too.

The Texas band contributed “Let’s Go Crazy” to a Spin Magazine Prince tribute earlier in the summer. Tonight the Gamblers roll into Burt’s Tiki Lounge in Salt Lake City.
