What ever happened to music tv. There used to be a time when I could sit down in front of the tv and watch music videos all day! Those days are gone!

Landsnark, I have to agree with you to an extent. I love the Avett Brothers and I was a big fan way before they ever got on the radio. Back in 2006-7-8 there weren't many folks that I knew of making music like that. Now everyone has a little cello or banjo or mandolin in their music. I know that this all just goes in circles and eventually we will be complaining that too many bands sound like grunge throwbacks or something, but I like variety and unique sounds. It seems like everybody has jumped on the folk-grass movement.
Does the sound of generic proto-bluegrass/stylized rock, carefully dirty/perfectly accessorized, music permeating every radio station make you hate life? Do the obligatory, shoegazing, bearded, cookie-cutter southern, tattooed, vintage-hat wearing, banjo-playing 2 or 14 person indie/douche bands you get from your hipsterier-than-thou friends get worse and worse every year? If so, you need to listen to Christmas music on every other dial.
He doesn't deserve a ranch in Paradise Valley. I love that place.
Oh please dear god, not Dominick the Donkey!
And when you say "melody of hits", don't you mean medley? Is there an editor or proofreader in the house?
Douche Rock? SOMEONE GIVE CHRIS PARKER A RAISE IMMEDIATELY
Racer X, I agree. Ticket prices were far too expensive, after TM charges you're looking at around $81 to be on the floor!
At ......"Straight Men for John Mayer" our goal is I'm OK, you're OK! Just because thousands of Babes dig John Mayer, it's OK for Straight Men to dig him too! Ok? I wanted to go see him myself, but the cost was too high. The cost for me and my wife would have been......$111 for tickets @ (55.50 a piece for the cheep seats), $10 to park, $16 for two drinks, plus $20 for something little to snack on............Total being $157 and would have been a total of $197 for seats (@ 75.50 a piece) to where you could actually see him playing. You gotta ask yourself is this the best value for my hard earned entertainment dollars? In the end the answer was no.
Wow, this is definitely some good stuff to read. Still don't know how I feel about Collapsible Ling, but is good to hear what he has to say about it. I also relate with the fact thay the journalist is a longtime fan! I believe I would stop breathing for the first 10 minutes if I ever meet Matt Thiessen. I feel related to this article and I just love it (especially the part of "telling your mom about it" I did it like 10 times, she knows all about it. I hope I'll get the chance of meeting him!@. LOVED THE ARTICLE.
Bing Crosbie couldn't sing his way out of a wet paper bag. Total hack. My money is on Bing Crosby. If that kid keeps it up he might just make something of himself
But the event looks great, regardless of the random commentary
I love Christmas music, especially the oldies. Who's got a better voice than Bing Crosbie? I'm sure most musicians would agree.
If you're not yet familiar with it, you need to check out A John Waters Christmas.
That is fantastic!
hey chaz weren't you the guy who tried to have motormouth arrested after you were publicly humiliated by the bois?
Why does charleston hate punk music?
Guess you haven't been fucked real good by the Mabel!!! Don't worry will slam that hate right outta ya chaz
Those guys suck. Nice video.
Can't blame the guy. Charleston is an amazing small city.
As amazin as it is.....it's still a small city.
So it's a low ceiling here for artists of all stripes. And you hit it really fast if your goal is to go big, charleston just doesn't offer that level of exposure.
Best of luck! I admire Steven for following his dream.
Steven Fiore's move is a tremendous loss for Charleston, and, in my opinion, a harbinger of The Holy City's fall from grace. I once took a date to a Fiore show at Eye Level Art Gallery and we walked home in tears. His music is hauntingly beautiful.
Apparently the bores have won. We are more interested in raising the rent and attracting Ohio state derpers than focusing on what is truly important.
