Cara Dillon

No need to say much about Cara Dillon. Just listen.

The award-winning Irish songstress is on a U.S. tour that brings her to Joe’s Pub in New York Monday only.

Bitter, bummed out and bored is no way to go through life son.

Unless of course you’re in Seattle’s These Arms Are Snakes, it seems to work for them. Tonight they’ll drive the van over the curb at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia.

Joan Jett must have seen herself in San Antonio’s Girl In A Coma.

Formed in Middle School over a mutual love of Nirvana, The Smiths, and skipping school the San Antonio bad girls are today signed to Jett’s Blackheart Records and touring endlessly. Tonight they stop at The Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta.

Midnight To Twelve say whether it’s five or 5,000 you get the same show.

The crowd won’t be 5,000, but it will be many fold more than five at The Scout Bar in Houston Monday night.

Outsiders would not credit indie music artists for attributes like hard work, independence, integrity, and originality.

Gardening Not Architecture hold those values. When you think about it they’re necessary for success when slogging it out on the road. Support them tonight in Phoenix at Trunk Space in Phoenix.

Few bands have endured what Manic Street Preachers have.

In 1995 the brilliant, but troubled Rickey Edwards vanished. To this day his disappearance has remained one of music’s greatest mysteries. No body has been found… no sign or sighting of Edwards… nothing. The Manic Street Preachers have carried on, and for their new album wanted to pay special tribute to their band mate. Their latest “Journal For Plague Lovers” features lyrics, poetry, and journal entries left behind by Rickey Edwards. Their short U.S. tour reaches The Bluebird in Denver Monday.
