The Black Angels, Roky Erickson, and The Golden Animals at First Avenue – February 3rd, 2014

7 Feb

Words and Photos by Kyle Matteson   Golden Animals often get compared to The Brian Jonestown Massacre, which is a fair and worthy comparison, but after seeing them live, they actually reminded me of The Doors a bit more than I would have cared for. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy their short 30 […]

KDWB Jingle Ball at the Xcel Energy Center – December 10, 2013

12 Dec

Review by Kyle Matteson with photos by Susan Woehrle I’ll be up front here. Attending KDWB’s Jingle Ball wasn’t exactly something I thought I would ever have the desire to do – but I also wouldn’t have guessed I’d fall so hard for a Miley Cyrus album either. Yeah, you read that right, I’m a massive […]

The Besnard Lakes and Elephant Stone at Triple Rock Social Club – November 8th, 2013

10 Nov

  Openers Elephant Stone combined elements of psychedelic rock with traditional Indian musical instruments making for a very unique and interesting sound that is nearly unclassifiable. Lead singer Rishi Dhir effortlessly switched between playing bass guitar and sitting down to play sitar, all the while the rest of the band held down tight and nimble grooves. […]

Obits at Triple Rock Social Club – 10-7-2013

14 Oct

Brooklyn’s Obits brought their brand of gritty rock to the Triple Rock on a dreary Monday evening, their first Twin Cities show in almost 4 years. While the crowd was sadly fairly thin (I would wager to guess 50 at it’s fullest), they didn’t seem to let it effect their performance one bit. Drawing mostly […]

Sam Amidon at The Cedar 10-1-2013

3 Oct

By: Kyle Matteson Vermont folk artist, Sam Amidon‘s latest record ‘Bright Sunny South‘ is not only one of the best folk albums of 2013, it’s also one of the best albums in general of the year. His music has drawn comparisons to Nick Drake, Richard Buckner, and Jose Gonzalez, which is pretty fantastic company. His […]

The Replacements at Riot Fest Denver

24 Sep

 Review and Photos by Kyle Matteson The second the band stepped on stage on a cool Saturday night an hour outside of Denver, I knew that this show was going to be quite a different animal than the more focused (yet still great) show in Toronto a month prior. How did i know you ask? […]

Patrick Watson at the Cedar Cultural Center

4 Dec

Patrick Watson is hardly a household name in America, and for that matter, even in Canada, despite having won (in a rather surprising upset) the Polaris Prize in 2007, over such albums as Arcade Fire‘s ‘Neon Bible‘ and Feist‘s ‘The Reminder‘. Watson’s brand of lush instrumentation and personal lyrics have been compared to Rufus Wainwright, […]

Shearwater at The Cabooze – October 18th, 2012

24 Oct

Having already been through Minneapolis twice this year (opening for Sharon Van Etten in March and as an opener yet again in May with St. Vincent), Shearwater played a triumphant 45 minute set opening for 80’s & 90’s indie legends Dinosaur Jr. They mentioned right off the bat that they drove overnight from their hometown […]
