This article and interview is great, looking forward to this event! But.... I took the photo featured here, which seems to have an incorrect attribution. I'm sure it's an honest mistake - how should I straighten this out? http://www.flickr.com/photos/nocore/726327…
Thanks for the catch, Jeremy. The text has been corrected.
Article states in the body that the shows are on friday and sunday but that is a typo. Friday and saturday may 17 and 18
Heading to Durham on Friday for Solas. If you're not Irish, these guys will make you wish you were.
This may seem picky but in the Krakenfest write-up, there is a geographical error. Hwy 54 runs from Carrboro to Saxapahaw and then Graham but never to Pittsboro. Pittsboro is off 15-501 or Hwy 64. Thanks.
Yes, I also made a typing error (I usually do)...hopefully you have more to do then worry yourself about it.
You can only fixate a small mistake the rather than the context of the article.....Please, your pubescent comments does not make you of high intellect. Picking out negatives in order to self-glorify yourself…lame.
Read the Dylan review carefully. Heard him 3X in last 10 yrs. and his voice is unintelligble! He's completely overwhelmed by the volume of his band. Why is that? BTW-no bigger fan than me. 1st heard Blowin' in the Wind on a jukebox in Oct. '63, and have admired and appreciated him ever since. But pay $70. to not understand what song he's singing? Please.
Oh, and why is Rush not listed?
It's a travesty not to have Besnard Lakes show at Cat's Cradle tonight on this list.
He certainly needs to get busy with the facts.
"Rolling the Bones"? Yeah...this guy shouldn't be writing about Rush.
LiLa's music is unbelievably hype and I think that IV supports this claim. It certainly doesn't "eat away at one's listening time". LiLa is awesome, and IV, along with the rest of their music, is worth listening to. The show on Friday was incredible. I agree with some of the previous comments, I don't think anyone will be outgrowing LiLa's music or energy.
I'm not a longtime Lila fan, so I don't feel the need to defend their honor like some other commenters. That said, as a reviewer, you should know a term like "bro band" is a loaded term that comes with connotations - primarily negative ones. If that's what you meant, you should own up to and explain your reasoning up front. Instead, you bury it in a clause of a complex sentence. That's not fair to Lila or any band you review.
Personally, Lila's rapping veers a bit too close to the rap-core style of Linkin Park for my own tastes. But see how I did that? Explained WHY I liked/disliked something before unilaterally declaring it as "_______"?!
I recognize that all reviews are opinion pieces, but casually dropping such a definitive (& possibly the review's strongest) assertion strikes me as irresponsible, careless, or both.
@missbliss Enlighten me. What does "bro band" mean?
I find this review silly. This band is awesome, everyone is entitled to their own opinions but I think calling Lila a Bro band is ridiculous, do you know what a bro band means? And considering the fact that Lila has sold out every venue they've played in Durham I doubt we will be 'outgrowing' the awesome sounds and shows they put on.
Thank you for taking the time to review LiLa's new album. I don't think you quite grasp who these guys are, especially when you refer to them as a "six-man bro band". These guys are great at what they do and put all their heart and soul into the music. If you want a better rendition, please come out to the release party at the Cradle on Friday so you can hear these songs with the energy and passion that LiLa brings to the stage.
Thanks for review-- LiLa has without a doubt some of the hyp-est concerts in Durham, and I don't think IV is going to change any of that. Partially agree with some of production critique but that has never been the reason to listen to LiLa-- I don't think they will stop giving Durham (or Chapel Hill, Friday) or anywhere else a packed and pulsing show, and that's what it has always been about for me and plenty of other folks. IV doesn't lack any of the thoughtful lyrics or jamming beats that we love from LiLa and I find it hard to believe Durham's going to outgrow those guys anytime soon
Not sure why Bob Mould wasn't mentioned here...
