The "Bob Seger is a poor man's Bruce Springsteen" claim revaels a cursory understanding of Seger's career and the height of cliche (the very thing the reviewer ascribes to Seger). A closer look at their respective careers reveals that Seger's songs, while more modest than Springsteen's often more grandiose and sometimes political overtones, connect more intimately with his audience because of his simple yet universal themes related to real life emotions and relationships. As Bob Dylan once said "some people say that Bob Seger is a poor man's Bruce Springteen but I always thought that Bruce Springsteen was a rich man's Bob Seger."
Rank is one of the best song writers NC has to offer. He should not be missed!!
It's about time someone brought attention to this travesty. Justice still has a ways to go in America. Thank you! We'll be there!
Hmm. My reply seems to have evaporated, so I'll post again:
The Coffin Daggers cancelled.; they were replaced by the Krektones. There's also 22 bands, not 21. As for the Cave, they have been notified. Interestingly, they have the poster (with the correct info) in the news section, but incorrect info in the calendar section. It took me a while to find the wrong stuff on thar.
Regardless, all of the up-to-date information was included in the press release I sent the Indy a while back, and I'm wondering why this wasn't used for reference. Should I be sending it to someone other than Mr. Currin? I always appreciate the exposure you folks have given the Summit--it makes a HUGE difference--but I want to make sure the stuff I send gets read.
Who 's ready to have fun with Fun Friday night at Lupos Heartbreak Hotel on Friday night. Sleeper Agent is opening up for them, which is another great band. Dont let the name fool you, they'll keep you up. Here is their video for Burned Again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Qz0m5IYh10
I've seen this show twice and it dazzles the mind with many possibilities of what it could feel like to be detained --- especially a political powerhouse like Donald. Go see it.
After seeing “Guys and Dolls" for the fifth time, I think Temple Theatre has created a well-executed production. Well know songs such as “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat” and “A Bushel and a Peck” to name a few will not disappoint fans of “Guys and Dolls".
Corey Brunish, soon to be part of the cast in Broadway's “Bonnie and Clyde”, is charismatic as Sky Masterson. Award winning director and choreographer Peggy Taphorn directed this production and stars as showgirl Adelaide and does so with spot on comedic timing.
Great show, Great Album, Great shirts, Great music video promo. Lizh has it all going for her! It's only a matter of time until she goes world wide. Be part of the story before it becomes a legend people!
I saw these deviants years ago at 506 and they were so bad it was entertaining as hell! Adorned in Black leather jackets and sunglasses sweating and screaming and puking on the stage...alarming but amusing. I even included them in a song I wrote describing all the posters in my studio. to quote "was the worst goddamn music I ever heard, but a very cool show" Go see it. you won't ever be able to forget it.
Worth getting out in the newly cold weather to attend.
Stumbled on this little gem while in Carrboro. Funny, insightful, loved the literary allusions.
just looked them up and listened. I agree with you, his voice is, hmmmmm, raw, unique, untrained and sexy as hell, all at the same time. Might try and make it to this show on Monday. I hope Ben Best is there too. He is an occasional member?
These guys are really good to be playing locally! Three excellent musicians who can play all kinds of varieties of music. You won't be disappointed with the level of talent here. They've been playing for many years in many different bands so it seems....... I look forward to catching them whenever they're around because I like to DANCE!.
This is a good club with cheap beer and great bands!
Go see Last Year's Men! Heard them at Local 506 in Chapel Hill. Great indy-garage rock band - tight and getting better each time.
