Interview: The Nth Power Drummer Nikki Glaspie Talks About Recording their Live Album, Maceo Parker and More

in Interviews by
Nth Power

I have a major soft spot for bands with New Orleans in their background. Anybody that has been to NOLA knows what I mean. The quality of keys, guitars, and especially horns is simply a sound that’s just so damn good and unique to that city. The Nth Power without a doubt fits that criteria.…

in Interviews/The Latest by

I first heard TAUK on Sirius Radio’s Jam On. I am a big fan of heavy instrumental jams and methodically played grooves, and these guys fit that bill nicely. The guys in the band, Matt Jalbert, Charlie Dolan, A.C.

Heart & Plugs Summer Shindig Concert Recap: Brave Baby & Susto Shine

in Concerts by

Jim Morrison once said, “I’ve always thought comparisons were useless and ugly. It is a short cut to thinking.” No offense to Mr. Mojo Risin, but I’m not on LSD (presently) and the best way I know to get friends and people excited about bands they’ve never heard of is to compare them to ones…

Concert Review: Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats – Charleston, SC
