Concert Reviews


April 3, 2024 - Sierra Ferrell's better than average concert became truly memorable about two-thirds of the way through: the moment she was joined by actor John C. Reilly (wearing a black with red trim outfit from "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story). Once saddled up next to Ferrell, who was also wearing a ...
March 26, 2024 - Life hasn't exactly been all that easy for former American Idol contestant Josiah Leming. That was a long time ago for the person behind the non-existent band Josiah and the Bonnevilles, who was in town for a sold-out show as part of The Endurance Tour. So were three record label deals that went ...
March 25, 2024 - Sam Barber may not be a big, ego guy jumping all over the stage. So, it's almost surprising to see his name in big red letters on a black screen behind him. After all, we knew who we were going to see. That's why the show was sold out weeks in advance. Despite his rising status or perhaps ...
March 14, 2024 - Jenni Muldaur and Teddy Thompson brought a set of old country songs from their 2023 "Sing The Great Country Duets" album, and even a minor fender bender – as Thompson described it – could keep them from sharing a collection of mostly sad songs with a group of country music lovers. ...
March 13, 2024 - Perhaps no bigger praise could have come for Mason Ramsey than when his guitarist, Paul Sgroi said something to the effect at the outset of the encore, "I've played with a lot of musicians in Nashville, and (Ramsey) knows his country music history." Considering that Ramsey is only 17, ...
March 12, 2024 - Aoife O'Donovan chose the perfectly appropriate venue to debut her upcoming "All My Friends" album, as McCabe's is the prime location for acoustic and folk-related music in Los Angeles. This new release is a nine-song set, inspired by the passage of the 19th amendment and the suffragist movement. ...
March 9, 2024 - There is a reason why some songwriters have a career of only penning songs for other artists and why some – prima facie example, Jim Lauderdale – not only have had a long list of real hits for others, but manage to forge and maintain their own recording and touring careers. ...
March 7, 2024 - Hurray for the Riff Raff - really the moniker of lead singer Alynda Segarra - hasn't come around to the Boston much in six years. About once. But their return at the sold-out club underscored that they remain ever relevant. While the group featured more of a rock sound (and not a very distinctive ...
March 6, 2024 - Just when you think you can't love Lukas Nelson more, he puts on a stellar show that leaves you even more impressed with his skills. Nelson, with his Promise of the Real band, opened with the resilient "Sticks and Stones," even though it's tough to think of a reason why anyone ...
March 2, 2024 - Chris Stapleton is contemporary country music's most soulful singer, so his show is fantastic, no matter what songs from his catalogue he chooses to perform. However, his setlist for this sold-out baseball park show was a cut above recent local appearances, primarily due to his - at times - ...
February 29, 2024 - Madi Diaz has enjoyed a heady few weeks. She released her new disc, "Weird Faith," on Anti- earlier in February. She made her second appearance on CBS Saturday Morning for the second time a week later. And she launched her tour in support of the new disc last week. The headiness ought to ...
February 25, 2024 - Less than four months ago, Tanner Usrey was at the very same club opening for Paul Cauthen. His set was very well received – deservedly so. And now, Usrey was headlining the very same venue and proved that his October 2023 outing was no fluke. Usrey merged Outlaw Country, Southern rock, country, ...
February 24, 2024 - Life as a musician could be a bit of a downer these days for Tyler Booth. Apparently, he is no longer on Sony Nashville, which put out a few EPs, yielding no sizable hits. And on a Saturday night, maybe there were 100 people in the house. No matter for Booth, who covers both traditional and Outlaw country sounds. ...
February 23, 2024 - Robbie Fulks played an early Friday night show, starting his set at just after eight (and this was even after an opening act). Although it was a show that finished long before the late-night news even came on, Fulks was nevertheless in fine firm – even at this early hour. Accompanied by ...
February 13, 2024 - The Immediate Family is more than a rock documentary and also more than a group of famous Los Angeles studio musicians. It's also an honest to goodness semi-touring rock band, as well, and kicked off its current short tour at the tiny club in Los Angeles. These players may not be household names, ...
February 10, 2024 - Marshall Crenshaw is calling his current tour "40 Years In Showbiz! (1982 – 2022)," and it's difficult to believe he's been at it that long already. After all, he still sings with such a youthful voice. That voice was in fine form, however, in front of an enthusiastic house. ...
